Journeyman Doesn’t Make the Cut

Low ratings have lead NBC to let the deadline pass on picking up another season of Journeyman. The final two episodes will still air. No word yet on Bionic Woman whose ratings have been sliding steadily since its premiere.

    Not Too Upset
    I liked this show, but it never really grabbed me and pulled me in like several others. Sounds like the rest of the country had a similar reaction.

    I would like to have seen more of the show, but there are so many others I am watching now that I almost welcome some cancellations!

    Really Dissappointing
    Journeyman was by far my favorite new show of the year, the combination of elements really grabbed me, and the "fantasism" had a really great subtlety that sold the show.

    as i put it to some friends after the first few weeks of the season…

    I hear you about "chick scifi" … but i like it for a lot of hte same reasons i liked "Now & Again" .. it’s scifi that doesn’t go over the top with the Sci or with the Fi, it keeps a nice balance of a guy copeing with supernatural things he can’t control and a guy copeing with domestic issues he can’t control.

    ….

    [Pushing Daisies] keeps impressing me, the narrative hasn’t slowed down, and all the characters are shwing definite growth and potential for growth … definitely the most orriginal show on TV, but when i sit down to a fully loaded TiVo it’s not the show i’m drawn to … journeyman is hte show where i keeping wanting to know "What’s next?"

      I agree, I think Journeyman was one of the best new shows this year. It really made you think and its handling of time travel was better than most shows.

      I am also very disappointed by this news, I also liked Journeyman best of the new shows. They can find room for garbage reality shows but not one that has well developed, believable, likable and flawed human characters. The stories were great and the characters were awesome. I hope someone else picks it up…. SCI FI CHANNEL, that means you buddy, do your stuff!

    Well, sonofa…
    Heroes: Didn’t go so well this season. It was good, but it wasn’t great. Willing to give them another chance.

    Chuck/Reaper (since they’re the same show): Both good shows, lots of humor, enough action and drama to keep balanced.

    Smallville: I just have to see how it ends. It’s decent enough, but I just want it to finish.

    Journeyman: Got better as it went along, and now that the "conspiracy" has grown by one more, it has even more potential. I will miss this show.

    Bionic Woman: Started out well enough, but didn’t hold together as time went on. I won’t miss it if it goes.

    Stargate Atlantis: It needs to go somewhere fast. As it is, I don’t care enough to miss it if it goes.

    Pushing Daisies: I never got into it. I watched the first ep, but I was already keeping up with so many shows this one became a casualty of TV Overload.

      Yeah like George Bush and Donald Duck are the same.

        OK, so they’re not same, I just wanted to say that because after the first week of seeing both shows, I started having serious deja vu.

        Loser dude works in a big box store with his dippy friends goes on crazy adventures.

        Chuck = Sam
        Morgan = Sock
        Sarah = Andi
        Casey = Satan

          Yeah, well, if you’re going to generalise THAT much, you may as well say it’s a lot like Three’s Company, too.

          Personally, I think you are on drugs :/ You are reaching, veeeery far there!

      <Voice Charlton Heston> Journeyman is Quantum Leap! Its Quantum Leap! </Voice>

      Sam has got home with the wife, and Al has retired, so its just him and the Evil Leaper to jump around and fix things. She got religion and reformed.

    no surprise…
    I liked it.. but like someone else said, it just didn’t grab me and hold on. It started a little slow and got better. I do like the actors quite a bit.

    Too bad really because nothing else this past season has done much for me.

    But but but
    Moon Bloodgood!

    Mrph. I was really enjoying that show a LOT more than I thought I would. The drama was excellent, and the acting was good (not just Moon Bloodgood).
