    Bummed about The Last Man on Earth and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Two of the very few comedies I still watch on broadcast TV. I really wanted to see where Last Man might have gone with it's latest cliffhanger. Some hope 99 gets picked up by one of the streamers, we'll see.

    The Expanse. But it might get picked up by Amazon or Netflix. But I am starting to think that they got this show all wrong.

    Dammit! I think it's probably the best show on tv currently, that sucks.

    Blindspot and iZombie both got a reprieve for at least one more season, both were kinda doubtful I think. I've enjoyed them at times but both are kinda wearing thin.

    Lost In Space....season 1 was awesome. Hope it gets renewed, ratings were stunning so there's hope.

    I was glad they brought Timeless back, after it was initially killed. It's not great, but it's at least something different.

    Also it needs to be on streaming or a network that allows bad words and nudity. I want to hear Avarsala cuss and drop F bombs. Her scenes are always great in the books.

    I think it was during season 1, somehow she did drop an F bomb and it slipped past the sensors.

    Was a bit surprised to read that Designated Survivor has been cancelled as well. Was not a great show, but wasn't a bad one either. Sounds like Netflix is thinking of picking it up. Any excuse to watch more Maggie Q.

    I've DVR'd a the bulk of this season's Blindspot. For some reason I just haven't gotten to many of them. I do like the show though. I think they plowed through too many pot twists to quickly Jane -> Taylor -> Remi, etc. but it is still a decent show.

    Two great shows. The expanse better get picked up.

    I imagine both are fairly expensive to produce though.

    The last episode of the Expanse was awesome. This show deserves to live on.

    Word on the street is that Sci fi might be open to renewing now if the ratings improve in the second half of the season.

    Another great episode tonight. I haven't read any of the source material, but looking at some message board comments about the show, several indicate the real story is only just now starting. I've been pretty blown away up to this point, but apparently we ain't seen nothin' yet. Which makes it all the worse that the cancellation was just announced. Grrrr.

    Doesn't really count as a cancellation because it was known this would be the last season, but New Girl just signed off for the last time Tuesday night. As usual fairly silly, goofy and irreverent, but a decent send off. I'm gonna miss those characters. Jake Johnson has already been in a handful of movies, I've seen a little bit of Max Greenfield, hopefully Lamorne Morris will find some roles on the big screen. Don't think Zooey Deschanel will have any trouble finding work.

    I mentioned Blindspot earlier in this thread. Tonight was the season finale. HOLY CRAP! If you're watching this show, two huge WTF plot twists at the end. Wrapped up some things from this season but left next season wide open to go totally different directions. Not the good kind of plot twists in my mind, both pissed me off.

    I agree 100%. I picked it up on Netflix a couple of months ago and sunk a lot of time into catching up; I was completely hooked. The last 5-10 minutes of the finale absolutely took me out of it. I'll give next season a chance, but it will be tough to watch.

    You get your wish. Let’s see if it can improve with the shackles of broadcast television taken off.

    Yes! I don't have Amazon Prime, but this might be reason enough to get it.

    Yeah buddy! Anyone who read the books, is there the same time jump they just did in the TV series?

    Not trying to hawk the service, but Amazon Prime beats any other offering out there in value for money. Of course, I order a lot of stuff on the internet too.

    Legion got greenlit for season 3. Great, now the producers have more time for the slowest developing story line and least plot advancement of any show on television!
