|12:12 am - That thing I was talking about last post?|
The official announcement is up.
I believe this is fandom's cue to implode.
Current Mood: busy
Joss had the advantage that the S4 before the fab S5 wasn't as great, but I digress...
But yes, Doctor Who has a future secured until 2010, which is rather more than pretty much any show I can think of, let alone a genre show.
I don't know if that's an advantage. Season 5 isn't great in comparison to Season 4, it's great in comparison to everything befor and after :-)
Also, Season 5 Angel is basically it's best season, too.
As for secure futures... Lost has a commitment until 2010 as well. But, yeah, most other shows have no such long-term commitment. Even big franchise shows like L&O or CSI probably only have commitments until 2009.
...True. (Yes, 5 is my fave series of Buffy. But 4 wasn't that great, which I think might have triggered some thinking from the prod team)
People still care about Lost? I thought it was yesterday's news.
Ah, yes, I will agree with you there - the production team did seem to notice what was lacking in season 4 and improved on that in season 5.
I don't care about Lost either. Everyone who is still watching is a sucker... but at least with a three seasons-to-end commitment, the writers can plan how they might possibly wrap things up.
I never really got into Lost, but I have noticed that it is no longer splashed and hyped everywhere and anywhere - Heroes seems to be the current omnipresent TV show. Though I am less bothered, as from what I've seen Heroes is rather more towards my preferences...
