Those who’ve been following my occasional pieces on genre TV might be interested to learn that ENTERPRISE was finally cancelled today.
Story’s on AICN right now.
I hope that the people involved with the show who I occasionally heard from find new work soon.
And so another Star Trek show descends into TV Hell. I met someone last year who’d been brought in to pitch a new Trek show: but, more than half a year down the line, I haven’t heard anything else. So my suspicion is that Star Trek is gone from our screens for a comfortingly long time.
And, with the final Star Wars film on the way, it seems that by the end of the year the culture will feel peculiarly cleansed. As if the shackles were released from us in our cultural basement, and we can finally take from our mouths the shattered antique underpants used as gags and wash old men’s semen out of our bum crevices.
Too bad, this season was ten time better than the previous three.
