    You should have kept watching. Here's the thing: she isn't all knowing. She doesn't know how or why they jump, she doesn't know who is controlling the jumps, nor does she have Ziggy giving her special knowledge of the people and places they jump to. She's more experienced than Dan, but that's about it.

    That's one thing that I always forget... I am in CST and to me, my evening of TV ends at 10pm. At 10, we watch the news, get ready for bed etc.

    10pm to me is time to decide if I want to stay up longer, or goto bed, that sort of thing.

    It's no wonder that 10pm shows sometimes fail, since most peple should be sleepy and or going to bed at that time.

    I mean, 10pm is 10pm regardless of the timezone. it's not like you guys where 10 is my 9 are all "hey, the night is still young" or similar right?

    Here, primetime is 7-10pm. That just makes sense to me

    OK, that's what I thought. Same info that Kamikaze posted here yesterday.

    Not officially cancelled yet. Hanging on by a thread. A very thin, almost invisible thread. :(

    And, as I posted much earlier in this thread, this is NOT new information. This has been disseminated on other Journeyman threads the past week.

    Well, I wonder then if 10PM shows like Journeyman do better in the Central time zone, since they come on there at 9PM?

    I guess there's no place that breaks the rating out by time zone is there?

    It was a solid show, but not great IMO. I don't know what will be revealed during the final two episodes, but I hope it comes to at least some semi-satisfying closure.

    If it doesn't I'll always wonder about where it could have gone, but didn't. And that's what drives me nuts.

    Well, that's not a fair poll, because most of those who took it were interested enough in the series to read an article about it's cancellation. And I would guess that'd be people who watched the show regularly. Fans.

    So the number (now 87% positive, as I write this) isn't that surprising.

    Right that's why I said "unscientific" ;)

    More so than being accurate, the poll does reflect that this show has a loyal fanbase, one that would like to see the show continue. My point was that there is some viewer momentum here. Btw, I just checked it and it unscientifically says 93%.

    Ahhh, but the first Dexter book does not end like Season 1 did so technically there would not have been full resolution. And book 2 is definitely not season 2.


    In the interest of not spoiling the books I won't say what's different.

    Didn't wish to get emotionally invested in another doomed scifi show on FOX.

    Except that it was on NBC.

    (Produced by 20th Century FOX, but so is a lot of stuff on TV.)

    Damn, this show was so good, but wasn't promoted enough (like Chuck and Bionic Woman), and had a tough time slot (10 pm, against CSI, Football, DWTS.) If this show was against Ghost Whisperer, it would have cleaned JLH's clock.

    I don't understand why folks cancel season passes or delete unwatched episodes of a show that they know is so good.... even if the show has fullfilled it's contract and not been renewed (note: specifically not mentioning the 'C' word)

    Not wanting to get involved with something that's not coming back is a reason I've heard -- But I don't understand it. Do these folks not watch movies or mini-series, because they don't have a sequel.

    The series Journeyman as it stands today is longer, more intricate and involved than a movie ... which does not have a sequel season after season.
    It's kinda like a mini-series ... which may or may not tie up all loose ends at it's conclusion.
    It's a fantastic show -- even if it won't continue.

    Why would folks not want to see it?

    That's a good point...but I think people's fears come from being use to seeing networks pull the plug without finishing up whatever has already aired. Then that leaves things unresolved and nobody wants to be left hanging. It'd be like watching a movie and the projector in the theater goes out and the film is burned and you never get to see the rest of the movie...EVER.

    In the case of Journeyman though, from what I hear, they ordered 13 episodes, they filmed 13 episodes. So its very likely they could end it in a way that ties up loose ends but may keep the door open for more episodes.

    I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    Even that's wrong.

    Last I checked, the 12 episode is running in the Monday slot, but the 13th is going to air next WEDNESDAY, not the following Monday.

    Heroes is a TV show that's generating an online comic as side-stories.

    Heroes is a scifi TV show.
