Getting attached to a TV show and then finding out it’s been cancelled. All those hours we have spent getting attached to the characters, getting lost in the world that has been created only to find it all snatched away from us. There are many articles out there listing shows that have unjustly been given the axe (Firefly appearing in almost all of them) but I’d like to take this time to look at what effect cancellations have had on the television landscape today, as well as the causes for the axe to fall.
Are people as likely to stick with a new show as they once were? I don’t tend too. Sometimes I will watch the pilot episode of a new show if the premise is good enough and I feel that the show has enough behind it to take it forward,
