HOLY FRAK.  
CAPRICA. HOLY FRAK YOU GUYS, CAPRICA.

FRAK YOU SYFY, YOU STUPID MOTHERFRAKKERS. *shakes fist*

Seriously, I will make heavily detailed reviews shortly. All I have to say is had Syfy not been fucking assholes for mistreating the show or at least shown some interest and support of it from the beginning, we could have had at least one more season to really fully explain everything leading up to the inevitable. At least. Because shit got real really fast and it's amazing. Hell, it had been since day one. Those motherfrakkers who don't see that, screw them.

Why is it that the majority of my shows that I love are the ones that are prematurely canceled before their time? Or that nobody sees the value of until it's too late? :(

Tell me about it. Most of my favorite shows have a nasty habit of being canceled during their first season, or sooner.

It's just a waste of amazing potential for good television and not some of the crap that plagues our screens these days. It's like, networks sacrifice an amazing quality show for something like reality tv, and that's just fundamentally wrong. I understand the ratings system is part of the business and it keeps everything afloat, etc and so forth, but the ratings system means jackshit these days and it should be changed.

It really was, I was in such high anticipation the entire time throughout watching these last several episodes, literally on the edge of my seat, ngl. And the montage at the end was fantastic, though I couldn't help thinking that we could've seen everything more thoroughly of what happened with those quick images going passed, you know? Like, that is the season that should have been, and had this been a season finale instead of a series finale it would have given us a peak into how things would have gone down.

I can't see how Blood and Chrome is gonna fit into this timeline though, considering everything that happened. Unless they give flashbacks or something, but I highly doubt so.

Serious question, which is worse? Shows cancelled prematurely, or shows that go on too long and methodically destroy characters that you loved?

Now that is truly something to ponder about, isn't it? While I hate my shows being canceled prematurely knowing the wonderful places they could have gone, it preserves the quality of the characters and the story. For example with Firefly, I truly adored that show and the characters involved, despite it being canned too early. Each episode was filled with richness of the story and you could tell the amount of hard work and utter joy everyone had making it, which sometimes cannot be said for other shows. And the shows that go on forever (Smallville, for example, having gotten so ridiculous even the fans are wanting it to die, and to a lesser extent now Supernatural is heading down that very path of "why didn't it stop here?" only because of rating purposes)

I think there could be a middle ground, and some have had that kind of achievement. For example, Battlestar Galactica. The creators knew that they wanted to end the show after four seasons, and that gave the series a proper beginning, middle and conclusive ending to the entire story and the characters, and rarely do shows get that proper full-circle feeling.

I feel like creators need to have a specific game plan handy, knowing where they ideally want their works to end and a backup in case things don't go as planned. But nothing exceeding reasonable expectations. In an ideal world, of course.

Great question. As much as I hate when shows are canceled before their time, I also hate when shows enter the Zombie seasons. I think it's even for the same reason, that is wasted potential; shows that get canceled too soon never reach their potential and shows that go on too long end up destroying the potential they had had.

So many shows that I love have been getting cancelled in the last few years. Its got to the point where my hubby is so jaded with new tv shows he prefers not to watch a new show unless it has been going for a couple of seasons. Can't blame him, there is nothing more frustrating then getting hooked on a show and it not even making it past a first season, especially if it has a cliffhanger ending or something.
Renée: Dean/Castiel. Bittersweet.rogueslayer452 on January 1st, 2011 03:02 am (UTC)
I completely understand that feeling. I know shows get canceled but they seem to be doing it more frequently than usual these days, it gets rather disconcerting knowing that you might end up liking a show only to discover that it'll be canceled. Of course without viewing new shows there won't be any kind of show of support that people are actually watching these programs, thus making cancellation more likely. So yeah, it's a tough call to make. :(

I just wish networks would stop being nouchedozzles and let a show run its season before making conclusions like axing them or something. Give them a fair chance to gain an audience/fanbase, JFC.

Good shows just shouldn't get canceled.

I thought it was good from the beginning. Really haven't understood people's complaints. This is the kind of television that people should be showing.
Renée: Caprica. Zoe Graystone.rogueslayer452 on January 1st, 2011 05:03 pm (UTC)
I think some people were trying too hard to compare it to BSG when it had already been stated that it would've been nothing like its predecessor. While it wasn't perfect it still on its own quite nicely. And yes, I agree, this is precisely what television should be broadcasting instead of mindless reality crap.

Wait, I'm confused. I thought the new episodes weren't airing until Tuesday. My DVR didn't record anything. Have the episodes leaked or something?
Renée: BSG. Centurions.rogueslayer452 on January 2nd, 2011 12:21 am (UTC)
Oh don't worry, the episodes will still the airing on Tuesday. The S1.5 DVDs have already been released to buy (got mine on Christmas) and they already aired the last episodes in Canada a couple months ago, unlike Syfy here who are fucktards that don't know what they are doing.
