I must admit I have not seen a single one of those, and only heard of a handful. I guess maybe that's why they were cancelled!

I watched "Law and Order, LA", that is the only one on the list I watched and will miss. Too bad, I watched the original "Law and Order" from the begining in 1990, I will miss the original format. SVU is still on, so I will have to make do with that.

I can still remember getting my first VCR and figuring out how to set it to tape for the original "Law and Order" in 1990. I even had my neighbor come over and learn how to change the tapes and set it for me when my Army reserve unit was called up to go to the Gulf in November 1990 for when I got back! I can't believe the original "Law and Order" really lasted for over 20 years. Truely my favorite TV show ever!

I did watch the Paul Reiser show once and it deserved to be axed! I did watch Lie to Me fairly regularly and thought it was quiet good. Never seen any of the others.

We watch Chase & The Event so that stinks! The Medium has been off for a long while. I knew it was done and over.

L&O Criminal Intent was the one L&O spin-off I never really cared for. Looking forward to the next season of SVU.

Okay,so I watch tv... Detroit 1-8-7 is an unusual cop show..mainly about relationships. Just finished watching Chicago Code and that too is great, but the biggest sin is the cancelling of Lie to Me.. exceptionally excellent acting. Did anybody watch Castle tonight... shocking ending.....What do you think will happen next year? Also I like Burn Notice and White Collar..

The Event was the only one that I watched but I only watched it one or two times. It was moved around and then disappeared for quite a while and I never got back into it. I did watch a few episodes of Chase.

I'm with Parrot Mom. I really enjoy Burn Notice and White Collar along with Royal Pains. USA has some very good shows.

I feel bad for how bad NBC shows have become. They really have had some stinkers. I watched one episode of "The Cape" and realized I would never get that hour of my life back.

Take care,
Mike

Hi Parrot Mom,
YES, caught Castle last nite and I just can't believe Becket is gone....what a cliff hanger.....I am hoping she had a vest on or something, there is no Castle without Becket....What an ending, will surely keep us guessing until the fall.

Default Good wife

Just read that the Good Wife is going to be a "doozer" tonight...great acting and writing.We also tape MI5, the english mystery and now that our beloved Red Sox are playing we do alot of channel flipping.Mariska Hargitay probably wants more time with her new baby... and wouldn't her mother of been so proud of her..the bomb shell, I think Jayne Mansfield.Did you ever notice that many of the scenes written lately have Spanish characters, that's because Mariska speaks spanish fluently. The joke around here is that Law and Order is on continually all day long. The Event is one of Parrot Pops favorite, I'm not into science fiction.

I stopped watching most T.V. a long time ago. Never saw any of the shows listed, and agree with most of you above that they won't be missed. I just can't imagine who at the networks "buys" these pieces of crap?

"SKY"

There is no way that Kate is gone, there would be no show without her. I think the plot line will be that her death was "staged" or something to that effect in order to find out all details of her mothers murder

We just changed over from our standard PVR to an HD PVR and in doing so, I lost about 7 hours of taped V that I hadn't watched yet! Oh well, i wont fret about it now.

I quite like Event, but any of these shows with the "supernatural" can't last long. I hope they have a good finale to wrap it up.

I also liked Chase. It reminded me of the cop shows I'd watch growing up. The main character was on last week's good wife (without the southern accent!)

I LOVE GOOD WIFE. It is one of the best shows on television right now. thanks for the heads up Parrot Mom, i will make sure it is set to tape.

I liked lie to me and outsourced, but not to much that I'm freaking out they are gone. I was a casual fan of the shows. My favorite show Supernatural is coming back. So I'm a happy camper. I'm been chatting with other Supernatural fans what a nutty and great bunch of people they are. Check out the 67 Impala in my signature, how can you not like a show that has a car that cool in it. The music is great too.

I will miss L&O LA and Brothers and Sisters....the rest I've never seen. The acting on B&S was excellent. Can't understand why they would cancel it.

I have not watched any of the shows listed, either. I am looking forward to tonights NCIS as it sounds like someone is going to die, and also the last show for the SVU sounds like someone there might be gone. Good week for TV

Hey Lisa,
I had the same feeling that it was staged, so they think she's dead and then, they think they can go on their way, ...but then they will get them...I can only hope....

Yea that was great that Castle finally told her he loved her...

Richard Castle is a true author with books very close to the show, although some of the names are different, you know who they are. He also lives in NY with his mother and daughter....very interesting.

I basically agree with Sky-- most of what's on isn't worth watching in my opinion. So, instead of watching several hours of t.v. each week that has sex, violence, nudity, murder mayhem, etc. I just watch the evening news for about an hour and ---Bingo-- I get all the scoop on the above mentioned-- such as who's sleeping with whom, which star or celeb is in trouble, who had an affair with whom, etc, who was murdered, mugged, etc. etc.
Saves so much time that way !!
