I'm more pissed that Rubicon wasn't picked up for another season than anything.

I think I would feel less annoyed if they went the cheesy serial killer route and ended the season with some freak that follows Richmond killing his women.

Then, at least, there would be a more plausible/watchable continuation of The Killing(s).

Would I be pissed off if I watched what episodes they did produce of that?
I know a lot of people liked it.

At least with Firefly I don't feel guilty telling people to watch it because what eps. they did make were golden.

I thought Rubicon was excellent. A show for people with an attention span, etc. There are loose ends that will never be tied up....which I can deal with, of course. I just hated to see a show with that level of patience and intelligence fail...doubly so, selfishly, because I LOVE the espionage genre.

Firefly was a lot of fun.

Sadly, I never even bothered with Rubicon beyond the second or third episode because I knew it was doomed to be canceled. That is to say nothing of its quality. I just thought to myself...this is too much investment even for a small cable audience. Also, I think I was watching like three shows at that time which were occupying 'investment' space.

Too much commitment anxiety with these shows...unfortunately they are my favorite (by far) types of shows. Long myth/mystery arcs, with good episodic character drama. The X-Files, LOST, BSG...but for every one of those shows, you have a Flashforward which went from 'terrific concept' to utter shite by the end. JMO.

My biggest heartbreak was when Carnivale was canceled.
I can't think of a more underrated TV show. Probably because nobody has seen it.
It's a fuckload more interesting than it sounds and the Season 2 finale has a hint of closure enough to enjoy it well enough. Such potential there...

I don't know why I can't get into Joss Whedon.
I've tried...it just doesn't click with me.

I can't get into Buffy or Angel, but I really liked Firefly and Dollhouse.

Firefly > Dollhouse, but I enjoyed both. Have never seen Buffy or Angel, likely never will.

U2DMfan, I'm the same way....I love shows with arcs...not exclusively, but, I definitely prefer them. I too knew Rubicon was doomed but stuck it out, I liked it too much to abandon it.

When Buffy started, for the first few years I said "That sounds dumb, why would I want to watch that bullshit?"

Then FX ran a marathon of all the seasons before season 6 premiered, and then I said "What was I thinking? This is amazing!"

Angel started off kind of goofy, but the last few seasons were ridiculously good.

Veena Sud, The Killing - shitrunner

“I stand by [showrunner] Veena Sud, and risk-taking is what we do; cliffhangers are a staple of TV and a huge part of mysteries,” Collier says. “If I could do anything differently, it would be to manage expectations.”
AMC president and general manager Charlie Collier
I guess it is our fault, we had the wrong expectations.

Chalk it up to yet another European series copied in the U.S. and is a letdown?

I love that they think The Killing audience isn't mature enough to tune in for a second season if the first one is wrapped up.
Hey AMC! Write compelling, interesting characters, and we'll follow them wherever (the '60s ad world, the CDC's doomsday dungeon, drug labs, wherever.)

AMC apologizes over "The Killing" cliffhanger ending - WTAQ News Talk 97.5FM and 1360AM

AMC apologizes over "The Killing" cliffhanger ending

Thursday, July 28, 2011 12:34 p.m. CDT

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Cable television network AMC on Thursday assured frustrated viewers of drama series "The Killing" that the central murder case would be wrapped up in the second season of the show.

AMC's original programing chief Joel Stillerman also acknowledged that the network "should have managed expectations better" when it ended the first season with a cliffhanger over the identity of the murderer.

"You will find out who killed Rosie Larsen in season two, definitely," Stillerman told television journalists.

"We are incredibly proud of the show as a whole. But we definitely did not manage expectations as we should have," he added.

"The Killing", a slow burning, character-driven series with dozens of twists and turns, was promoted by AMC over 12 episodes with the tagline "Who Killed Rosie Larson?".

But the first season ended in June without solving the crime, provoking protests from critics and fans alike.

Two of the show's stars -- actresses Mireille Enos and Michelle Forbes -- have been nominated for 2011 Emmy Awards.
AMC, FOAD!

I'd rather they didn't.
