Adios, Awake

The final episode of Awake was upon us this week. It tied up most of the loose ends okay, and the ending I can live with. 

You know it's the last episode when the show's premise is no longer mentioned in the opening sequence. 

It was hard for me to see how they could keep going had they gotten another season, so while I was sad about its cancellation for a little while, but I knew it was for the best. At least they got 13 episodes before cancellation - it would really suck if it ended abruptly without settling some things.

Come to think about it, the only thing I cared about was the baby subplot in Wife World.

Goodbye, Awake.

So long, Horatio

The bubble finally burst for CSI: Miami after news that it will not be renewed for another season in the fall.

Which is just as well because I watch it out of habit and not so much because I still enjoy it.

I will miss the cheese factor, like seeing Horatio's (now discontinued) sunglasses, and his pre-theme song one-liners, most of which are in a 7 minute video someone took time to make and upload :P

Have I mentioned how glad I am that they're keeping CSI: NY?

Awake (NBC) is cancelled

Ever since Hugh Laurie made it huge on American TV with House, it seems that every other network wants a go at that and are having more Englishmen on American TV with American accents.

I thought Jason Isaacs had that with Awake. BUT...

NBC finally cancelled Awake (among some others). Loved the show.

Too high brow for a network show I suppose.

Am I sad? A little.

I hope that it gets a good send-off. 

I don't know if we will see Jason Isaacs on an American show again, but I hope sooner rather than later.

Begs the question of what BD Wong is going to do now that Awake is cancelled - is he going back to SVU?
