Ever notice that the two most common things in the English language aren't all that common?, 3 September 2005
Author: jay c from United States

The 2 things I'm talking about are common courtesy and common sense. What the hell was Showtim thinking when it cancelled this show? Well written? Good acting? Smart script? Who cares... the show was just great but heres the killer..... who was the moron that cancelled a show without at least giving the faithful viewers (oh yeah that would be us... the ones that pay his/her salary) an ending? There's got to be something that we can do. A strike on Showtime... a riot.. I don't know... but I NEED CLOSURE ;) The show was definitely entertaining and well acted. Weller is always a pleasure to watch as the epitome of brass balls smart ass. I'm hoping one of the heads at Showtimes falls on his head and realizes what kind of mistake they have made and corrects it.
