Why do they cancel good shows?

No, seriously, why? What’s the politics of this?

Let’s take a show about a perpetually single guy wizard and his ghost-in-the-skull assistant who gets to help out these distressed-but-oh-so-not-weak, usually very kewl, romantically inclined female characters, throw in a tough female police lieutenant who he can work with and have lots of sexual tension with, and then….

Cancel it.

Let’s do that, because, you know, too many good characters here, too many roles for Women Who Don’t Completely Suck (no, it doesn’t bother me that they’re often hot on the geeky male lead – that’s the genre. If it was a woman wizard [omg the kewlness!] I’d expect the same sort of men [and possibly ladies!] being romantically inclined toward her thing), too much fun and world building.

I mean, for fuck’s sake, Buffy got seven seasons.

Granted, OK, I’ve only see the first disc of shows. But COME ON people.

This is why I don’t fucking watch TV, because people keep canceling Firefly, Carnivale, and shows like The Dresden Files.


The politics of these decisions are just baffling.
