  1. Whoo! This year's cancellation pool is a bloodbath.

      I know you were a big fan of The Exorcist. I heard a lot of good things about Lucifer too (although I heard it wasn't as good this season). And I really enjoyed B99 when I watched the first few seasons. So much gone so that we can get Tim Allen grunting and playing the martyr as Fox tries to chase a Roseanne demographic. I will not be watching.

      Roseanne is at least, as many critics have said even this week, a complicated and messy show with dueling viewpoints. It's a flashpoint but its heart is in the right place so far IMO. But Last Man Standing is the worst. And they do indicate a troubling trend.

       

      All my friends watch B99 - I think there is a good chance Netflix or Hulu may pick it up at which point I may finally watch it all. Same with The Expanse's chances - it shocks me SyFy cancelled it. They've been making such a push to be taken seriously as a prestige network lately, but cancelled that and passed on the big Tremors pilot with Kevin Bacon - probably because they've decided they still want to play it cheap.

       

      The Exorcist got one more season than I expected and was very faithful to the source materials. It has a slim chance of pick-up on say, Hulu, but I just hope people discover the two seasons there.

      I just saw that the Supernatural female-led spinoff with Kim Rhodes also wasn't picked up. Last year's attempts to push a conservative viewpoint mostly failed for the networks yet we seem to be going there again. Oh well.
