how come television shows are simply cancelled, rather than being improved by changing actors, directors, writers, styles, etc.? just because a show isn’t doing superbly, doesn’t mean the whole thing should be trashed.
particularly: how come tossed shows aren’t picked back up by other networks/producers, and refashioned for success? change the title of the show or change the show dates/times.. change the actors, add or remove actors, enroll the actors in bootcamp acting classes.. change the director or add a second chair or something…
and when shows are cancelled, why can’t the storyline for the never-to-be-seen-episodes be shared with those members of the tv-watching-public that have been led on by the show’s beginning and abandoned by the show’s ending.
it just doesn’t seem sensible to me to throw out a whole storyline/show concept, just because it doesn’t seem to be serving fully in its current exact capacity.
Firefly, Girls Club, Jack and Bobby, The Mountain, Dark Angel, Reunion, Birds of Prey…
some of these shows weren’t necessarily worth watching to begin with… some of them were potentially brilliant from the start… all of them would be worth properly recreating and resurrecting. change the show’s name, put in some real actors, change the show’s date/time to appeal to a different/wider audience…. i’ve already said all these suggestions above.
*shrug* okay well i’ve said my piece/peace. (I can never decide whether “piece” or “peace” makes for the nicer phrase.)
