Canceled. The word that seems to follow so many of my favorite shows. I didn’t even share my grief with you all over the cancellation of Chicago Code. The pain is still too deep.

Read the official statement from SyFy(still hating that name by the way) about the cancellation here.

EW asks what this means for the future of SyFy.

Erica Cera(Depuy Lupo) gives here thoughts on the end of Eureka.

CNN has a few celebrity reactions to the cancellation.

I will go drown myself in a pint of Three Twins and console myself with the knowledge that there is still a Christmas special and season 5 to look forward to.

“Hitting the Ground”

Well, last night’s True Blood was something wasn’t it?  I wonder how many gallons of fake blood Alan Ball goes thru in an episode? I bet he ups the order with each new show.

So, we bid goodbye to a few characters and learned something new about Miss Stackhouse. There was also an odd Massengill-esque sequence somewhere in the middle of the show that you really have to watch for yourself. I won’t say anymore, since some of you may still have it sitting on your TIVOs, but you can read the entire recap over at Salon here.

Maybe I will say one more thing, Pam is my new favorite vampire. Watch the end of TB and tell me I’m wrong.

Betty Draper’s Guide to Parenting.

You know what my big plans are for the weekend? Cranking up the a/c, grabbing a nice cool drink and watching the entire 3rd season of Mad Men. Oh yeah, I know how to party. NY Magazine on the other hand, is celebrating the return of Mad Men with a film montage of Betty Draper’s fine parenting skills.  Watch it here.

Wire alumni casting news.

Andre Royo(Bubbs) will guest star in the season premiere of Fringe, my new favorite show. He will join fellow Wire alum Lance Reddick(Lt Daniels) who plays FBI Agent Phillip Broyles.

If you haven’t seen this show, pick up seasons one and two on DVD and get caught up because you do not want to miss a thing when the show returns in the Fall.

Torchwood coming to the US.

I’ve been a little busy, so I missed the announcement that Torchwood is coming to Starz. I’m cautiously optimistic about the news. FOX had been interested in bringing the show to the US but ended up passing. That was fine by me since there were rumors that they planned on making changes to Captain Jack’s omnisexual nature. Captain Jack as a straight man?!? As if.

Why Flash Forward was cancelled.

TV Squad lists the “Four Reasons Flash Forward Was Cancelled”:

“The bottom line is that the creators failed to deliver on the promise of the premise. People were intrigued by the idea of ‘FlashForward.’ The pilot tested well and, by early buzz, it looked like ABC may have found their “replacement” for ‘Lost.’ But while ‘Lost’ got more and more complex and intense as it went along, ‘FlashForward’ quickly went off the rails.”
