OK, as an American, I grew up expecting 22 episodes a year from TV shows. Apparently Brits don't do it that way, and now cable stations like Syfy are following suit. Favorite series like Eureka are now leaving viewers dangling (it seems like) indefinitely just like the Brits. It seems like things are just getting going, the series is just hitting its stride, then BOOM! It's over, at least until another 6 months or so...
I finally understand what addiction is all about.
So, supposedly Matt Smith has signed up for another 14 episodes of my beloved Doctor Who for next year, but Steven Moffat seems to have other ideas. Who are we to believe?
Right about now, I'm frankly getting sick and tired of believing anyone. ENOUGH ALREADY! Quit freaking toying with us! It's bad enough I have to wait until late Summer/Early Fall/Mid Fall/ Late Fall (reports can't seem to agree) to get my next Doctor Who fix, now Steven Moffat says there won't be a full season next year, he's going to SURPRISE US!!!
I'm thoroughly sick of surprises, I was sick of them after David Tennant's sorry excuse for a final season (much as I do love him) and I don't want ANY MORE.
Can the BBC just put on a fraking TV show, for GAWD's sake, and quit with all the BS? PLEASE???
And could BBC America please quit cutting parts out of the show? I think 15 minutes of commercials is plenty, you're putting in more commercials at a cost, and that cost is my viewership! Is it worth it?
