|12:18 pm - Sharona! Come back...!|
I have enjoyed the USA cable network's choice of shows over the past year. Monk, Dead Zone, Touching Evil (a great remake of the Brit show), and reruns of JAG and L&O: SVU.
Now I'm getting annoyed with them.
They cancelled Touching Evil. *kicks imaginary USA execs* Stupid decision. A well-written, well-acted, gorgeously shot show--with an amazing character-driven premise. And just because it has lower ratings than Monk, they cancelled it!
And speaking of Monk....
The actress who plays Adrian Monk's nurse/assistant Sharona Fleming is...leaving the show. Excuse my french, but WTF?!? I cannot begin to imagine the show without her. Or at least, the show being good without her. Adrian and Sharona have become such a team. I can't even think of a good way for them to write her off the show. There's no way she would leave Adrian, short of some disaster involving her son; or by death, which I can't see the creators doing because 1) it's a comedy, 2) Trudy did that already, and 3) well, she has a son.
*whimpers* Sharona, don't go....
Current Mood: distressed
You're so funny!
And I haven't seen much of either show, but I agree...in general network execs are clueless as to actual show quality. It's all about the $$. GRR ARRG!

Re: Monk-ey Business
I may join you for that boycott--it'll be tough though, because I've become a huge fan of Tony Shaloub's.
And I think we should write supportive fan letters to Bitty. What d'you think?
