Law & Order Shit-Canned, Many Elderly Folks Consider Jack Kevorkian

And another one bites the dust. Not that I care; I’m still reeling-ly bitter about the imminent cancellation of 24. 24 is the best show ever, and if you don’t agree, stop reading right now because this entire post is going to consist of me bitching about 24‘s cancellation. I don’t give a crap about Law & Order, though I know that my ex-fiance’s mother is probably horrified and my grandmother’s probably rolling around in her grave, but you know what? Both of those people are dead to me (one obviously more than the other) and I don’t have to listen to the alligator tears over a show that’s been on the damned air for twenty damned years when I have to have Kiefer Sutherland’s hot ass dragged away from me after only eight brief-but-sweet seasons.

Really. What.  Are you bitching about.

Law & Order‘s been on the air since 1990 and NBC is officially cancelling the court drama. L&O will go to syndication hell just like every other long-running and semi-popular show gone before. The cast and crew of the ever-present television show were notified yesterday afternoon of the end of their careers the show’s demise.

But fuck. Law & Order got, like, seventeen spinoffs, why not 24? What kind of grudge are they holding against Jack? Why can’t we have our moment in the storyline-melding spinoff heaven?

Total conspiracy. For real.

    • You know, I watched Lost for the majority of the first season and I loved it, but somehow never returned for the seasons thereafter. I’m going to have to get it on box set when the dust settles.

      • You most definitely should. Lost really kicked in with me beginning with the second season and I’ve been hooked since. Great show, great characters, and best of all, not filled with a bunch of pretentious dialog.

  • Well, it is a major commitment to be a LOST fan, and I’m a little embarrassed to say that I spend an inordinate amount of time reading recaps and blogs. There is a lot of extra-curricular stuff that goes into it. It’s worth it though!

  • If I spent all my time loyal to all these TV shows, it would cut into my time reading this blog. Can’t do it. Sorry.

  • Well . . . I cannot stand 24 or LOST (I will leave the room if either is on; they just bother me so much), but Law & Order is a delightful show. I intend to watch the entirety of it at some point in my life. SVU is my favorite, but that is because domestic violence/rape cases fill me with more righteous anger and so I tend to care more about those episodes.

  • 24 sucks balls I HATEEEE it. It’s so ugh just terrible. Law & Order is the best show everrrr I have loved it since I was little and I used to watch it with my dad. Anyway I love SVU regardless of the story lines because I have a crush n both Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni I find Ice-T amusing and I am a morbid pervert. Anyway I am sad to see this show go off the air :( oh yeah and fuck 24.

  • Simon… I love you! I wish I could download / buy all the seasons, and I hate lost also. I think I just hate ant show that “everyone” watches like survivor and big brother and all that crap.
