Not shocked. I don't even know why CBS invests in sci-fi shows anyways. They always end up cancelling them when they don't perform to their expectations. Under the Dome, Jericho, now Extant.... Network heads across the board need to allow these shows to grow an audience. That's why people turn to cable and on demand Internet companies.
TLC said it best. "Don't go chasing waterfalls. Please stick to the river and lakes that you're used to."
Mark Collier's Mike was OK but he was just eye candy. Mike never popped as a standalone character. He only excelled because he had spunky female characters like Carly, Rosanna, Molly, and Katie beside his side. Mike was a dull drip all alone.
Yeah after the Royce story, Emily went downhill. She remained in limbo for years. I did think that Emily found her niche when became a reporter but that was nixed the final years of the show when she became obsessed with Paul and suffered from baby rabies.
Thanks! Thank God they nixed EAS b/c shopping channels would become moot by the time Paul returned in the form of Scott Holroyd.
KMH was OK as Emily. Yeah, she'll never be Melanie Smith's Emily but she was passable. I just feel that the writers never knew what to do with her. Yes, she was always slutty but she was a savvy slut with redeeming qualities.
Was pairing Sarah with Paul yet another attempt to try and make the Kasnoffs work? Because if so, it was another failed attempt. I never cared for Mark or Mike, but I didn't mind Sarah though as many did; however, in the era (the 90s) when bad girls reigned supreme, saccharine characters like Sarah were bound to be flops.
And EAS? I don't remember this story as a child. Maybe I used to tune Paul and Sarah out during those scene. Well hell, if you weren't the Hughes, Jack, Rosanna, Ben, John or Carly, I really didn't give a f-ck about you during this time....
Didn't Diego rape or violate Emily? If so, was this before that incident? I always thought of Emily around this time being one of many P&G's Vicky Hudson clones (my girl, Carly being another). I feel like they didn't know what route to go with Emily after Marland died.
Ben is another character that they didn't know what to do with him. Peter Parros was a joy to watch. So glad that he is getting shine on Tyler Perry's Have and Have Nots even though that show can be a mess at times.
And Jane Powell felt more like Penny recast than she did a Lisa recast.
