Save Me

Now I'm questing my own taste but I for some reason actually enjoyed the new Ann Heche show Save Me. Now in no way am I recommending the show. It's not really funny, the premise is thin and everyone is overacting. However some where buried beneath this over trying to be hip show is some heart. I think I'll stick with it until its cancelled.

Re: Save Me

I made a thread about Save Me yesterday, and funny enough, even though it's about a prophet of god in the modern world, I didn't feel compelled to heave it into the Sciencefiction and Fantasy Forum. Touched by an Angel, Eli Stone, Joan of Arcadia, or Highway to Heaven certainly wouldn't belong in this forum so why so why treat this story about a crazy delusional wasp as anything less than fantastical?

Anne made a hilarious movie last year, staring almost a completely female cast called That's what she said where she plays a self interested drunk who is much like her character in Save Me before God singled her out.

Re: Save Me

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand... Cancelled.



I can't have anything nice.

A Christian Lobby group called "One Million Moms" is taking credit for this kill.

They also took out The New Normal a couple months back.

One Million Morons.

Joan of Arcadia is the only decent one, I'll stick to season one of that.

Is it off the air already, or do we at least get the whole season?

I might be just a dumb Brit, but my TV set has an off switch. If I don't like something I can either turn it off or change channels. Do these this option not exists on your side of the pond?

These idiots are for small government, so small that they want to control what's on the TV. They are also too stupid to figure out where the off button is on their TV.

Re: Save Me

Googling shows me that they are also taking credit for the cancellation of 666 Park Place (thank you) and GCB (meh?) but you have to remember that these women(?) believe that heaven and hell is real and that the rapture is imminent, and that this is not the time when otherwise good people should be blindsidedly corrupted by the mockery of Christ (JC does not have a sense of humour.) or the forwarding of the Homosexual Agenda.

This isn't about how shitty a TV series is, this is about saving cow like undecideds on the fence from wallowing in the Apocalypse when they have just as good a chance of accepting JC into their heart and ascending to heaven when the end of days begins.

This is something to look forward to.

Imagine how good TV is going to get after the Apocalypse.

13 episodes have been made. They got one queued up for this week. After that we wait for the panicking cowards to make up their mind where they can unload the remaining 6 without it effecting their bottom line.

One Million Mom's with an extensive list of products they will Boycott in Christ's name like they're a suicide bomber after their 72 virgins.

Terrifying

Seems to me like the networks are the stupid ones for allowing these people to influence them at all. These people are actually smart enough to realize this and continue!

The networks don't give a fuck about these people! Save Me was on NBC, a network that has become a joke and Save Me had their worst new series premiere ever. It had nothing to do with what some wackos said on some website no one reads. These crazy people just claim that they got the shows canceled to get free press.

If they actually worked there would be a single black person or queer on TV. The first show that would have gotten canceled would be Glee, which will have at least 6 seasons.

Re: Save Me

In truth, Save Me wasn't very good and it was remarkably offensive.

But I loves me some Heche on a tirade.
