Re: Last Resort was Awesome.

So I take it there won't be a proper wrap-up then?

So the series is still in production? YES! At least they'll have some time to at least give it an ending so we aren't left hanging.

Re: Last Resort was Awesome.

Damn, I'm really tired of starting these shows and having them cancelled so fast. I guess I'll have to start doing what I did back when 24 premiered. Since it was on FOX and I had been burned before by FOX, I waited until the second season started to watch the dvds of the first season.

So did they always have a plan to wrap up the show even before it was cancelled? Or was it going to have a different story arc for Season 2 if it got one?

It's not getting a real ending. It's getting the ending we would have gotten with episode 13. The actor who plays the captain was on The Chew, it's a cooking talk show, and he said that they were finishing up episode 13. Doesn't make it sound like we would have a lot of time to close everything up.

Re: Last Resort was Awesome.

Maybe somebody could write a novel as an ending. I would read that.

Or a comic book...

Heck if i would have an influental blog i would try to start a campaing for a comic book wrapup. That seems the most realistic.

Re: Last Resort was Awesome.

The ratings are bad, but not horribly bad for the bad time slot it is in. I wish ABC gave them 7 more episodes (total of 20) and just start calling it an "epic miniseries event". It seemed very close to a full season pick up, but for some reason a small downtick in the ratings of Thursday's horrible episode made them back off. If 9 episodes was too much why not just a few more?

Networks need to start making, producing their own shows. That way when something gets canceled they might give iffy shows a few more episodes to close up shop and make their money back on DVD sets.

Re: Last Resort was Awesome.

I remember when the networks would sometimes change a show's time slot if it wasn't getting high enough ratings. I wish they had tried that. I watch The Big Bang Theory on Thursdays at 8 so I watch Last Resort on demand.

Yeah that would be nice, I think Wednesdays at 10 would have been a nice try.

I just read about this today. A shame. It was by no means ground breaking, but I've enjoyed it each week and was looking forward to seeing how it played out.

Re: Last Resort was Awesome.

The show had it's flaws, but every show does when they are starting up.

Is network television so competitive these days that if a series doesn't succeed right out of the gate, they're done?

Re: Last Resort was Awesome.

Seems to be that way now-a-days. Kind of sad. But to be fair, I was starting to lose interest in it myself, so I can understand why it was losing viewers. They've just kind of been spinning their tires for the past couple eps now and I think a lot of people have recognized that.

I certainly have.

They had 13 episodes, in those episodes t should have been leading to a show down. Instead it seems every week is a showdown, but then everyone comes together. It's no longer moving forward.
