The Good, The Bad and The Gone
Well, the network big-wigs have released the schedule for next season. Things have been shaken up a lot - especially on the WB. So here is the lowdown on what's happenin' with your fave shows this fall.
The GoodHardcore cliffhangers (student shooting) and Keri Russell's growing ringlets, have made Felicity a hit again. Felicity returns for her final year of college and Noel and Ben both find themselves back in NY with her. In fact the whole cast comes back. And this season, Felicity will have a time slot all to itself. Jack and Jill which alternated in the same time slot as Felicity this year, has been cancelled.
Good witch - bad witch? We all know Shannen Doherty can be both. Well, she's giving up her good witch job. Shannen has quit her job as Pru Halliwell on the show Charmed. The show hasn't been cancelled but how are they going to continue? The show is based on the "power of three" - that's three witchy sisters. Now they have two. Guess we'll have to wait and see if the "power of two" is just as charming as three.
The BadDawson's Creek, the golden years. Okay it's not exactly Pacey and Joey in rockers knitting, but it is another case of taking a show too far. Dawson, Joey, Jen and the gang graduated high school this season and they have even made jokes on the show about how silly it would be to all go to the the same college. Well, they all go to the same city instead. Capeside is replaced by Boston. I have a feeling that this is a show that should have bowed out gracefully after the cast received their high school diplomas. I mean how much more Joey-Pacey-Dawson drama are we expected to deal with?
As if the big brooding vamp needed another reason to act depressed - Angel was left like an orphan on the WB after his love Buffy the Vampire Slayer was bought by UPN. There were lots of rumors floating around that the WB had cancelled Angel when they lost Buffy but that's all they were. David Boreanaz and his gang will be standing Buffyless on Monday nights - right after 7th Heaven. Kinda makes for a weird Monday night, huh?
The GoneIn the end, it seems there just wasn't enough Tobasco sauce in the world - at least not this one. Despite being a kick-butt show and having lots of fans Roswell has been cancelled.
Buffy has been slayed - by UPN. Luckily that just means she's changing networks. No news yet on what day Buffy The Vampire Slayer will air, but show creator Joss Whedon says he is excited about the move. Fans might not be as excited until they see a couple episodes and can see with their own eyes that the show hasn't changed. And what about all those cool crossovers between the Scooby Gang and Angel people? With two different networks involved that might not be so easy - or fun.
