I heard heroes and dollhouse were renewed.
Sarah Connor cancelled withour reprieve, i know sorry guys who loved the show. When shows that jumped the shark 2 seasons ago like heroes are still on the air. Oh well.
Lost was renewed also. The plot was "LOST" a long time ago the show jumped the shark. Yet it is one of those original bizarre entertainments like X-files beyond season 5 that make you go hmm.
Disappointed TSCC was cancelled, I'd hoped they'd pick it up for a third season. But it really did it to itself, if I were in charge of making the decison, I couldn't justify renewing it either.
I don't think Lost ever jumped the shark by any means. It simply started off as a show with mainstream appeal, and slowly evolved/revealed itself to be a sci-fi show, which quite honestly, are never that popular. Season two, where people say the shark was jumped, is when I really got into the show and started to consider myself a fan. Season one, where everyone consider the show ground breaking and award worthy, is the season I only kept watching because my wife liked it. If it hadn't been for her, I wouldn't have watched very much beyond the pilot. I think the last season of Lost was far superior to the first season. Lost was putting a foot on the shark, and seriously considering jumping it with parts of season three, but they completely redeemed themselves with the S3 finale and have been going strong ever since.
To me, it is the best long running sci-fi show to hit air waves since The X-Files, only looks like it will remain strong until the end, where X-Files bombed big time before the death throw subsided.
Regardless of whether or not they are making it all up as they go, which is by far the biggest complaint I hear against the show, it is to their credit that many of the mysteries of the first season make perfect sense in light of revelation made in the later seasons. If they have been making it up as they go, they have done a great job at it, especially considering the vast number of writers and limitations with the availability of some of the actors. People get impatient with the show because answer come so slowly, but to me that makes it all the more enjoyable. If you are the type that likes to read the last page of a book immediately after finishing the first chapter before proceeding to read everything between, then you are going to be frustraited with the show. If you enjoy reading all pages of a book in order, spoiler free as the author intended, then Lost is a lot of fun.
