It’s that time again: When all of our favorite shows come back from their summer hiatus, and you suddenly remember that the majority of them had cliffhangers that you remember very little about. While Google undoubtedly thanks you for the business, it has to be said: Is television doing it wrong?
It’s the most wonderful time of the year… unless you’re looking for season premieres of television shows, because if there’s one thing that the holiday season means, it’s Special Episodes based around yuletide and peace and love. So if this month’s selection of all-new shows for your viewing pleasure has a theme, don’t blame us…
It’s June, that time of year that is generally considered a television wasteland: Broadcast networks lapse into re-runs and shows that they didn’t think were going to be popular enough to get a big enough audience at any other time of the year, and we’re all supposed to be thinking about what’s going to debut come the new fall season. So why am I excited about the next few months of viewing?
A moment of silence, please, for Syfy’s SGU: Stargate Universe, which finishes its run with Monday’s episode, “Gauntlet.” Not only am I personally sad about the show’s cancellation, I also think that it’s bad news for Syfy overall. After all: Where are the network’s science fiction shows now?
Syfy has started production on Haven, a one-hour drama based on Stephen King’s 2005 mystery novella The Colorado Kid.
