"V" Renewed, Others Not So Much

"V" has been officially renewed! "FlashForward", however, was not so fortunate.

I can't say that I am surprised by the news. "V" debuted stronger and has more brand value (and a much cooler logo). Morena Baccarin is very, very good in the role of Anna, and the rest of the cast works for me. "FlashForward", although it has been better since returning from the break, fails to generate enough interest for me to watch each week. I never gained a connection with the main characters, and Sonya Walger's "Olivia" actually made me want to fast forward past her scenes.

In addition to the "FlashForward" cancellation, Airlock Alpha is also speculating that "Heroes" will not be renewed. The ratings numbers have not been good, with "Chuck" (already renewed, by the way) besting it in the same timeslot. To be honest, "Heroes" has been deteriorating for some time and should be gone.

Strangely enough, I am not upset about these losses. There was a whole bunch of mediocrity on display this season. I like the idea of a 'thinning of the herd' so that a few of the new offerings this fall have room to stick.

It's time for some new Sci-Fi - and I can't wait!
