Angel to End After 5 Seasons [FilmForce]
Observers have already noted the strange timing of WB's announcement, coming within a week of the highly promoted 100th episode of the series and late on the Friday of a 3-day weekend, resulting in little press coverage...They also quote a forum post from series creator Joss Whedon:
"No, we had no idea this was coming.Ed has also apparently gone byebye without it even being announced properly, which is a damn shame. If people's idea of a Stuckeyville series as a replacement could happen, I'd be mighty happy, but I'm pessimistic.
Let's see, what's left to watch - not much aside from Good Eats. West Wing's been very uneven this year, NYPD Blue and Judging Amy conflict... I enjoy Scrubs more than I do Friends or Frasier (both of which are gone in any case). But that's not that much TV at all, and it's easily TiVo-shifted to whenever I get around to it.
Hey, maybe I'll spend more time doing stuff instead of watching entertaining images and sounds! Maybe. 4 comment(s)
it may sound wacky, but you might try 'Joan of Arcadia.' it manages to have some meat without being all treacly ala the nightmarish Touched by an Angel, and not at all preachy, but a nice family that you enjoy seeing wrestle with their lives, and a lot of creative writing and gentle laughter worthy of the light moments of Buffy. give it two episodes and see if you're not hooked . . .
I've heard decent things about Joan of Arcadia, Gilmore Girls and Everwood. Maybe I'll be up for starting a new show in the fall, but for now I'm going to restrict my intake of new TV series.
books?? you crazy-man. go! go!!
That is horible news!!!Add a comment...
