Out of the Blue

Don't know if anyone else was watching Life on Mars, but I thought it wrapped up in a pretty cool way. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have liked the resolution as much if the show had gone on for years, so maybe it all was for the best. The show also ended an odd week of Dean Winters sightings, as he played little Sam's dad in the Life on Mars finale after popping up again the week before on both 30 Rock and The Sarah Conner Chronicles.

"Don't know if anyone else was watching Life on Mars"

It only ran for 17 episodes, so apparently not.


At least they FINISHED it (from what I can tell.)

I never watch a first season of a show anymore because I'll get invested in it, and then the fucking network cancels it after five episodes and you're left with a completely unfinished story. And if there's one thing I hate it's an unfinished story. I doubt I'm the only one who feels this way.

They should make series that have a definite story in season 1, and allow the whole season to finish. Then if it gets enough viewers, make a second season and write a new story, basically. (or a follow-up, whatever.)

I think more people would watch new shows if they knew it would be on for at least a season and would wrap up the major points of the story at that point.

As it is now with TV shows, it's basically like buying a book and hoping all the pages are there. (And in most cases they aren't.)
