Topic: End of the season 4 after 12 episodes...

Are my eyes / internet playing tricks on me?? Season 4 is now over after 12 episodes... WTF.. I know the writers strike is still going on after several months now but c'mon.. Surely by now they are starting to feel the pinch of not earning money.

12 EPISODES!! And IMO not particularly good ones either. Minimal character growth. Nothing really to make the viewer want to come back. Not even an attempt of a cliff hanger. ( unless you count the charlie and his GF situation )

I wish everyone would get their act together and start doing their jobs again.

Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone, and do not be troubled about the future, for it has yet to come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering

I agree. This whole strike thing is out of control. Just when we have some of the best shows on TV in a long time and some of the best seasons and cliffhangers, this strike comes along and ruins everything. It's bad enough that Studios cancel alot of top shows without giving them a chance. This is a joke.

I can understand the reasons behind the strike, the only problem I have is it has come at the worst time and ruined alot of good shows. This sux.

Re: End of the season 4 after 12 episodes...

There were 24 eps ordered, but only 12 got shot before the strike. Since the strike went on so long I doubt that there will be any more eps.
I hope it gets a new season at all neutral

And I agree that the strike came at the complete wrong time. There are simply too many good shows on air right now.

honestly, i'll be the first one to put the boot in when any kind of 'union' action is concerned [but that comes down to personal experience rather than a 'for the greater good' sensibility], but the thing is... if it were this time last year, or this time next year, the response would be the same... and the gods honest truth is... put it this way... i had 10-15 shows on my 'watchlist', and looking at things now, having had these shows ripped out from under me, I don't miss them.. when this shit is all over and done with, i guarantee you that only 3-4 of them will be put back on there... I have some concerns as to how this strike may affect Lost in the bigger picture... losing Supernatural & Journeyman [read: intelligent, well scripted, not taking your mentality for granted tv] was a bitch... but sheet... there is still a fairly strong represent going on from UK tv, The Wire has just started up, and i could riff a list of a dozen other shows that have more than enough episodes under the belt to sustain any 'viewing pleasure' that might be deemed necessary... so my advice is this peoples, take this as an opportunity differentiate what really means someting to you, and what was merely entertaining you... more than 95% of american productions are, at a stretch, playing to the lowest common denominator, an i for one, am pretty happy at the way things are playing out... but for all the wrong reasons tongue

i'm going to eat your brains and gain your memories...

No strike and yet Season 6 has had its episode count cut from 22 to 16 so it looks like this could be the end.
