Well yes, you could just look at the post below to see the final tally of which freshman sci fi shows should get a second season, but since I’ve been neglecting this site for a week or two, I thought it might good to report on something, anything.
The winners are Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Intelligence. Whether ABC or CBS will take our recommendations to heart is unclear. With a total of 25 votes (i.e., 13 voters, since one of you only voted for 1 show), we probably don’t make up a majority of the viewing (and sponsor-buying) public.
Personally, I voted for Intelligence and Almost Human, but news came this week that Fox didn’t renew the latter. There is a rather clever conversation about the cancellation on Previously.tv (the defacto replacement for Television Without Pity, which thankfully died earlier this spring). Like Natalie and me, the reviewers faithfully watched the show while complaining how it could be better. Or was that just me?
I admit I have been ignoring my favorite sci fi shows. I didn’t watch last week’s Supernatural (Alex Annie Alexis Ann) until yesterday, and have yet to watch “Bloodlines.” (Although I plan to later today.) I just finished this week’s Agents of SHIELD and I have to say, it was pretty darned good. We’ll see where the end of the season takes us. Look for Agents and Supernatural reviews later this weekend.
My sci fi watching schedule has been derailed by my new
obsession for love of interest in Charlie White on Dancing With the Stars. Along with the rest of America, I’ve been smitten with the charming, adorable mop-topped Olympic ice-dancing champion; and have been spending entirely too much time rewatching his dances and stalking him on the internet. As someone somewhere on the internet said, “”If you threw the essence of sunshine, puppies, and rainbows into a jug and shook them up, you’d pour out Charlie White.” Aww.
Hello Charlie White (and Meryl Davis and Sharna Burgess)!
