For some reason I have been watching a lot of TV series - things like The X Files, 24 etc and I really enjoy them as it is different from films.

But recently I have been watching the series of BLADE. I think it is a very good TV series and it has everything (or almost everything) that fans love about BLADE.

Then it just ended apruptly which annoyed me, but I thought oh there might be a 2nd Series. Then I read into it looking for a release date for the second series.

As I was reading up on it I realised it had been cancelled and there was not going to be another series because it got cancelled half way through the 1st series.

That really pisses me off because the fans who put their time into watching the show gets the short end of the stick.

The studios arn't happy for the existing fans watching the show, the exsisting fans get pushed aside.

I think it's the studios just being greedy. They want more all the time and in the case of series coming out in DVD box sets, us UK fans always get the short end of the stick there (I'll save that discussion for another blog).

I haven't seen the TV shows of ROME and DEADWOOD and I really want too. But again I have heard they got axed after the 2nd or 3rd series. It's just not on.

Thank you for reading.

    when it comes to show being canceled, the studios look at a rating system called the Nielson system, this is a small box that tv views have in there homes that monitors what you are viewing, there is only a small percentage of homes that have this box, but the studios only use the figures from those viewers. this is unfair to the people who actually watch the show. When the TV show Jericho aired in the U.S it got canceled after its first season, but the fans wouldn't take it so set up a sort of protest where 1000s of nuts were sent to CBS studios until the studio relented and commissioned a 7 episode 2nd season to end it all. The nielson box is a pain in the arse and causes a lot of show to get taken of air too early. With The Blade series, that originally aired on Spike TV in the U.S and hardly anyone watched it as it was a dificult channel to get.

    In the case of Blade, I also don't think it was advertised well over here. I'm not a big TV man but I didn't even know it was on until after the first episode had aired and I had Spike. It was also aired at a potentially suicidal time of the year in the U.S. so expectations can't have been high. The big shows generally begin their seasons in the autumn/fall because research seems to show that's the time when ratings potential is at a high. Blade aired in June.
    I'm a big fan of the first two movies but Trinity really didn't help the franchise and certainly didn't do much for the Blade character itself so it also wasn't the best launching point in my eyes. He was almost reduced to a supporting role by then. I still haven't seen the series but will have to catch up on it some time.
