First Lost, and now 24. Sigh. I have nothing left in episodic TV that I want to watch, which I guess bodes well for my free time. I don't know -- there's something special about looking forward to that new show every week. And we've kind of fallen behind on Doctor Who -- not sure why, except as a geezer-in-training I'm not all that thrilled about having such a wet-behind-the-ears kid playing The Doctor.

I was actually a little sadder to say good-bye to 24 than I was to Lost; I'd watched 24 from the beginning and never missed an episode (okay, had to tape some and watch some on Hulu, but you know what I mean). I did love the sweet little scene between Jack and Chloe at the end, though.

Still, as I told Erik earlier, I have that same sad/empty feeling I did when I walked out of Return of the Jedi lo those many years ago, thinking it was all over and there would be no more Star Wars films (good thing I didn't know what George would later inflict on us in the prequels). True, there's a 24 movie in the works. Here's hoping they don't Jar-Jar it.

I probably will be feeling like you are next year, because it will be Smallville final season, which I've been watching since the 4th season. I'm glad that it will be a plan ending, because I hate it when TV shows are canceled without any wrap up. But I know I will miss having that new show to look forward to when it ends.

I don't know if I will find a new show. Hopefully Merlin will still interest me. I guess I just don't dedicate myself so easy. I tried with True Blood, Heroes and others but they just were not for me. Hopefully you will stumble across one you will enjoy.

I've never watched Lost or 24, even though they were recommend. But I do like how Lost was planned. I do hope many more shows are planned that way, because I'm tired or canceled shows without an end, or long seasons with a bunch of filler episodes.

How long has Smallville been on, anyway? Seems like forever.

Right now I'm not seeing anything in the lineup for this fall that looks terribly interesting. The hubby and I enjoy Lie to Me, so we'll probably try to get caught up on that via Netflix streaming, but it's nowhere near the intense experience that 24 or Lost were.

And yes, I agree that it's no fun when shows are just canceled and you don't get any real closure. :-(

It has been on for nine years, which in my opinion is way too long. Story lines tend to get repeated or drag on forever, also the filler episodes that seem to serve no purpose. I think that is what happens to a lot of shows, and that is why I hope more TV shows follow Lost and Battle Star Galactica. I think I stayed with Smallville, because I’m a big Lois and Clark fan and wanted to see what they would do with the story line. If I wasn’t a fan of those two I would have left with the majority of people because of the teenage angst and Lana story line, which could have been taken care of in one or two seasons and not nine seasons. But I have been enjoying these last two seasons, which and glad I stayed with the show, because I’m really enjoying it.

I'm pretty sure nobody wants to work during the summer, not even tv. I noticed a trend that interesting stuff tends to pick up in the early autumn and fizzle out in the late spring. I agree with you about the empty feeling, but finding another program usually fills up the hole nicely. Summer, however, seems to be more for self-created entertainment such as wring your own fanfics, than finding something that will entertain you. That's my experience though.

Actually, I've seen a trend toward launching some new shows in the summer (esp. on the cable networks), but so far nothing I've seen advertised looks interesting.

Already planning a 24 fic. But I need to finish a few other things before I can get started on that.

Completely random...

Just thought I'd drop an introduction and a hello, so I don't appear a random stranger adding you to my friend's list (even though, let's be honest... that's exactly what I am! Heh).

I've been really enjoying quite a few of your stories over on (A Boba Fett romance that is actually well written just might be the greatest thing ever! Hehe.. and loved quite a few others as well). Poked around here a bit and saw that we have quite a bit in common so I added ya. Hope you don't mind.

Anyways... Hi! :)

Hey, if you found me here through my fics, then you're not a random stranger -- stranger, but not random. ;-)

The more, the merrier! I'll friend you back, too -- thanks! I'm glad you liked my Fett fics; I have to say those are some of my favorites.
