So Lone Star got the axe after two episodes. And now My Generation is cancelled after two episodes.
I didn’t watch either of those shows, though we did record the first episode of Lone Star on the DVR. By the time the second episode rolled around, the rumors of impending cancellation were so hot and heavy we didn’t bother recording it and deleted the first. And My Generation we didn’t have a lot of interest in.
It still makes me angry, though. What a freakin’ waste. A waste of time and a waste of money. The networks know about DVRs. Give us a little while to catch up. Give people a chance to test out the different shows and see what we like and what we don’t.
We watched the premiere of Outlaw and decided it wasn’t for us. We DVR’d Detroit 1-8-7, but now we watch it and DVR the other show in the time slot. We have two episodes each of The Whole Truth and Blue Bloods on the DVR. Are they going to be cancelled before we get a chance to watch them?
Let the word of mouth spread. Let people catch up online and rearrange their watching habits.
It’s so aggravating it makes me not want to try new shows. I’ll stick with the tried-and-true rather than invest my time in a show some network idiots are going to yank after two episodes because they can’t adjust their business models for new technology.
