    And there's nothing saying they can't restart the entire series over again with new Doctor #1. Or restart with a (new) Doctor #4 and do flash backs to (new) previous doctors. or flash forwards to (new) later Doctors.

    Or, say, restart with a son or daughter who takes up his name and mission and continues the series.

    It probably one of the few series out there where you can get away with just about anything and have it consistant with the 'rules' of the show.

    Maybe it's not that you need to stop watching cancelled shows...it's that more people need to watch them. Although, if your watching a show that has already been cancelled and this upsets you; yes stop it then.

    Glad to see DLM getting some love. I was a fan when it first came on and was heart broken to learn it was canned. But SO glad that TV on DVD is a big deal, I'm addicted to it!

    Season 2 was really amazing, I am shocked that they would cancel it after how awesome the eps were during S2.

    Also have to agree with whomever said VM is NOTHING like DC... If the mystery storyline was not so involved in the main characters lives I could possibly be forced to see the comparisons, but as is I don't see it at all. VM is amazing, and anything that gets as big a seal of approval from Mr. Whedon as VM did is A-OK with me!

    I watched all of the first season up until Veronica found out who had raped her and then began getting chummy with her ex-boyfriends best friend, who had done a relatively good job of showing no redeeming qualities in my opinion to that point. The mexican character was a ridiculous stereotype, IMO. The dialogue is simply Dawson's Creekish.

    The thing that gets me is that I know and understand that Veronica Mars is loved by the exact same people who generally tend to follow my shows. Arrested Development is my favorite comedy of all time, I had much love for Wonderfalls, Firefly, Freaks & Geeks, Undeclared, Sports Night, Dead Like Me, Futurama and I'm a sucker for HBO and F/Xish shows. I can't deny that I share the same taste in television as Veronica Mars fans, but I cannot, for the life of me understand why. Its just a stone cold mystery to me how people who obviously recognize a good TV show continue to praise the writing and it gets stunt casting by people like Whedon and Kevin Smith. Nor can I understand how, after doing such an amazing job in her two-episode stint on Deadwood, Kristin Bell would subject herself to those scripts.

    I'm just trying to make peace with it I guess, so my support will always go towards the low-rated cult hits, so know that I only voice these opinions amongst my own. I sign the stupid petitions and vote for it whenever I can, if only because I can totally relate to the plight of its fans. Bottom line though, it ranks with Joan of Arcadia as those two cult hits that I'll never understand.
