I caught an episode here and there when it first aired. It was obviously a one of a kind, super-engrossing and enthralling ride with each episode. Now years later, I pick up the DVD series as I meant to a long time back and finally get to catch all the episodes again during the Xmas break. Oh wow.. this series is still a polished gem.
Anyways on an aside, I've always figured GE and it's so-called managerial prowess have been over-hyped for donkey years. Came to that conclusion even before the financial crisis revealed GE as just yet another souped up financial hedge fund masquerading as an industrial company. Jeff Zucker never seemed to have a real programming knack... maybe he was good at tweaking the financial games like other GE chieftains, but I don't recall any of the best NBC legacy shows before he became CEO having his imprint (E.R., Jerry Seinfeld, Friends etc). And on his watch, NBC steadily lost viewership and ratings faster than any of the other networks.. yet the guy is still the CEO? For Boomtown to lose its essence during the 2nd season via Zucker's interference, that's just another travesty notched on his bedpost. *sigh* Creative masterpieces are few and far in between, total bummer that this series got canceled.
