Reboot. Star trek DS9 wanted to find out more about the tears of the profits.

Lou Grant(TV_series) (1977–1982).

That was one of the last few TV series that I actually watched regularly. Some said that Ed Asner’s politics got it canceled. I remember reading that he was trying to use the credibility of his character, a newspaperman, to bolster his offscreen activitiy.

For me, favorite shows go into the dumper before they are cancelled. I see it coming, bored writers devising plots which are too far off track to generate any interest for me. They start killing major characters for shock value.
Dead Like Me is a show I discovered after it was…
dead. The first episode I saw hooked me, and after binge watching every episode of both seasons I cursed everyone involved with the show for not keeping the ball rolling.

I’m not surprised it was cancelled, it’s a slower paced show that was thoughtful and took its time developing the characters.

It definitely would have been a long lasting show if Netflix had existed then
