The FOX Network is premiering Gotham in their fall lineup, and so far, I’ve been ambivalent about the idea of a new superhero show about my all time favorite bat dude and here is why; it’s FOX.
Then I saw the trailer.
Dammit, it looks good. FOX, do I dare embark on this sci-fi journey with you, knowing your track record for canceling really excellent shows? My fangirl heart can’t deal with falling for a really great show on a network that doesn’t seem to have any connoisseurs of sci-fi on the “Keep it” committee. May I present exhibit LIFE:
Watched: The entire season
This one hurts, still. I will never, ever forgive you, FOX, for canceling this brilliant show. #TeamJoss
Watched: half of the ONLY season on Hulu.
Day After. Every week. Til I realized it was too good to be true and broke it off before I could get hurt. FOX, you didn’t want a show with a diverse cast and hot film actors with a unique setting and premise? Okaaaaay.
Watched: None. I’m scared of pain.
Collectress would never forgive me if I didn’t include this Whedon show. I haven’t watched it, but she tells me it’s brilliant. I know it is, but aren’t there, like, a zillion cliffhangers? I CAN’T EVEN.
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Watched: None. I already knew.
This show looks so good!! I just, man. I really love the Terminator franchise, always have. I love Lena Headey. I will love this show and then I will get my heart broken. Again.
So, Gotham. Superheroes are hot right now and I love Ben McKenzie (I’m an undercover OC fan) but I just don’t trust that FOX will get the support it needs to keep a really good sci-fi show going. I think I may give it a try, because I have no doubt fans of Arrow, which is very popular on social media and just got renewed for a 3rd season, may want to watch the DC based origin story. One thing I do know–if I like it, I’m going to talk about it. If we don’t give the shows we love press, they will die. I feel bad for Almost Human, RIP single season FOX sci-fi show. You are in good company.
