welcome to my fantasies
Well, that was it then, I suppose.

"Friday the 13th turned out to be doomsday for Brothers & Sisters and V: ABC has axed both shows. The Alphabet net also pulled the plug on rookie series No Ordinary Family, Off the Map, Detroit 187 and Mr. Sunshine.

Though, as Deadline reported, the network was trying to find a way to bring back B&S for an abridged final season, in the end, the suits elected to free up their post-Desperate Housewives time slot for a new show. As a result, last Sunday’s B&S season finale is now, retroactively, the series’ finale."

I have yet to read the official message from ABC, but Ausiello is usually not wrong about these things... 

Sigh, I can't even decide if I'm really sad. God, I'm going to miss Kevin/Scotty. Matthew and Luke created such a beautiful couple...
13th-May-2011 08:15 pm (UTC)
I thought I would be more upset about it than I am. I'll miss the family dearly, but I am ready to say good-bye. I think. Maybe it just hasn't really hit me yet.
13th-May-2011 08:56 pm (UTC)
Yes, I'm not sure about my feelings either. I won't miss the show in general, but Kevin/Scotty..... tough to let go off.
13th-May-2011 08:16 pm (UTC)
And, I really enjoyed all these years connecting with others and talking about "our show." It's been fun!
13th-May-2011 08:57 pm (UTC)
I agree. :)

Plus, I don't think I'll stop writing just yet... It may fade away eventually, but I still have a few stories to go...
13th-May-2011 08:31 pm (UTC)
It actually happened, jesus that sucks but not unexpected.
13th-May-2011 08:54 pm (UTC)
No, it's not. I just wished they hadn't given us hope, before the pulling the show. I now wished that they had just SHUT UP about the possiblities....

Oh, well, it's over.... Guess it's time to open a bottle of wine... Walker-style!
13th-May-2011 08:59 pm (UTC)
I'll get the glasses.
13th-May-2011 09:05 pm (UTC)
Count me in.
13th-May-2011 08:48 pm (UTC)
Like I said before I dare not to hope, even I saw all those posts the last few days about how they'll give it a short finale season. I do know 5x22 seem like a good finale. Though after all those rumors, I did let myself hope for it a little. I knew the end may come. But I'm still upset and angry that this is really happening. I'm going to miss Kevin/Scotty too! And already so badly now.
13th-May-2011 08:53 pm (UTC)
Yes, now I wished they hadn't give us this little bit of hope. That is the worst. I was ready to let it go and then I started to hope for perhaps a little more Kevin/Scotty.... It wasn't to be. It sucks!
13th-May-2011 09:17 pm (UTC)
What sucks much is that, whatever future projects Matthew or maybe Luke, will be in, there's entirely a possibility that I won't be so lucky as the audiences in the European countries or the US that the local channels may pick those shows up. I may never see him on my tv screen anymore (well, I know there's DL these days from internet). But that still upset me more. But well, I really can't stop loving the guys, esp. Matthew. I really need to buy the 4 movies which I haven't seen yet from amazon now (cuz I've been searching for two weeks already in all the local stores I can find).

13th-May-2011 09:29 pm (UTC)
Oh, and which 4 Matthew movies are you looking for? I buy his DVD's as well. Pre-ordered 'Patagonia' too. Can't wait to see it.

I'm most upset, because I sincerely, truly liked the combination Matthew Rhys/Luke Macfarlane. It was just a golden find to get these two together. The two of them together just WORKED.

I'm sure that Matthew and Luke will find other jobs soon enough, but I had wanted to see them work their magic as Kevin/Scotty just a litte longer... :(

13th-May-2011 09:50 pm (UTC)
I totally agree with you about Matthew and Luke working so great with each other. Its a shame that that's over.
13th-May-2011 10:32 pm (UTC)
That is the ONE thing that keeps going on in my head. No more Matthew Rhys/Luke Macfarlane. I can do without the rest... But.... No more Kevin/Scotty... I can't grasp that.
13th-May-2011 09:53 pm (UTC)
Same here. I hope I'm rich enough to do a spin off show for just Kevin/Scotty!

BTW, lemme see, I still need to buy :
House of America (I really want to see this one)
Sorted (seen all of it online, but I like the DVD cover design, so I really wanna keep a copy of it, so I can watch it over and over again):P
Peaches (oh, wait so there're five)

I've got everything I can find here. So far I have Titus, Abudction Club, The Lost World, All B&S DVDs, Deathwatch (both DVD and VCD..cuz I didn't know I have the VCD in the first place), Love & Other Disasters, Virgin Territory and The Edge of Love.

I think I'll wait until Patagonia come out before I order, cuz sometimes the shipping rate fluctuate between Amazon US and UK (they have special shipping rate at times for me).

BTW, do you have P.O.W.? (sorry I turn this into a Matthew appreciation thread LOL...darn I can finally smile) I remember you said in MRO that you have the whole series. May you tell me if so, which episode number is Matthew in? I love war movies and I really want that one! Although from the pics I saw from the gallery, I suspected his character died at the end, I still wanna see him in that one! But I don't know where to download it!

And do you know where can I find his episode in Columbo? He's looking real hot there!
13th-May-2011 11:06 pm (UTC)
I have POW and the episode with Matthew is Episode no 5. The series itself had only 6 episodes. I ordered the entire box 4 years ago, when it still had a reasonable price (Just checked, nearly had a heart-attack seeing the price of it!) Matthew will break your heart. I've tried to find a download for you as well, but so far, no luck.

Columbo: Matthew is in the last episode of season 12. The DVD box recently came out here in Holland and I immediately bought it. (It helps that I've ADORED Columbo for as long as I can remember!)
(they might be cheaper on Amazon US)

I don't see 'Very Annie-Mary' on your list. Matthew plays with Rachel Griffiths and Ioan Gruffudd. (first time I really saw Matthew. STILL wondering how I could have been more interested in Ioan. I was so in denial! Must have been in shock!) Not very much of him in the movie, but Ioan and Matthew together is always such fun to watch and Rachel and the rest of the actors are so endearing.

Fakers! If you ever see it, tell me what you think about it. It's still high on my 'favorites' list, together with 'The lost world' (Sorry, I love dinosaurs)

House of America is tough to sit through. Not an easy movie at all, but Matthew... OMG!! So good!!!
13th-May-2011 11:32 pm (UTC)
Wow, thanks for going into all the troubles to look out those for me. Thanks very much! And wow yes, I saw the price of P.O.W., jeez...I think I need to work harder and get a few more jobs done first for that one (darn I love him in uniform I guess!) But I love these prisoner camp thing as well.

And yes, I missed Very Annie Mary up there... and yes I know what you're talking about, I watched them sang 'You can't get a man with a gun' so many times and all the other available on youtube. I love the scene where Ioan hugged Matthew from behind, cuz they're so cute in that scene. I wonder if Rachael really did sing that song herself, cuz if she did, wow, that's a very very great voice!!

And I love The Lost World as well! Watched it five times already since I got it last month!! Even got my brother interested in that one! He saw it twice as well! But I kept asking him to rewind at certain scenes and asked him to pay attention at what Matthew's doing, I was glad he didn't kill me!

I learnt about House of America, but I'm all for dark stuff as well. May inspired to write something really dark you know.

Thanks Marea. I actually couldn't sleep (it's 7:30am already), but I think I have a lighter heart now, I'll go to bed and try. TTYL. But now I want to really check those DVDs...
14th-May-2011 06:25 pm (UTC)
**** I wonder if Rachael really did sing that song herself, cuz if she did, wow, that's a very very great voice!! ****

According to one of the featurettes she didn't sing.
14th-May-2011 10:26 am (UTC)
Than you Marea for the links on Columbo and POV. I'm missing Matthew and Luke already so I've started ordering what I haven't still buy from their films. I've just ordered:

The Testimony of Taliesin Jones, Columbo, POV, Tabloid and Patagonia

And so far I have, all the B&S DVD's, Luster, The Edge of Love, Love and other Disasters, Fakers, Deathwatch, the Abduction club, Shooters, Sorted, The Lost World, Very Mari Annie, Peaches, Titus and House of America.

Do you know if it is possible to find Metropolis, Heart and Backup?
Do you recommend me to buy Virgin Territory, Beau Brummel and Whatever happened to Harold Smith? Has Matthew enough screentime on these films?

About Luke I have all of his films and tv shows except Tanner on Tanner, do you know if it is possible to find it in Region 2 DVD?

Thank you very much in advance!!:):)

And I agree with you my Matthew's favorites are House of America and The Lost World (apart from B&S). I'm really waiting for Patogonia I think it would be great too :).
14th-May-2011 10:38 am (UTC)
Oh! Amazon.co.uk don't let me to buy POV, it says "cannot be shipped to the selected address". Well, I suppose the cheaper second hand sellers don't ship internationally and the other options are too expensive! Sigh!
14th-May-2011 06:35 pm (UTC)
Luster? How did you manage to get that one? I didn't know it was out yet. Checked it on Amazon, but could not find the version with Matthew just yet, only the other one.

Metropolis: To my knowledge, it hasn't been released on DVD yet, only video. It's 198 min long takes up 2 video-tapes and ... it's been a while since I've seen it. Maybe I will try to put it on my computer. If I can do that, I can make it downloadable. Sigh. Lot of work. Need to think about that. ;)

I'm not sure what to say about VT, BB and WHTHS?, other than, the parts he played weren't big but I personally wouldn't have want to miss them and they are valuable to my collection.

Oh! Sorry Marea, I don't have Luster, I confused it with Shooters.
Thank you for your reply, I guess I'll buy Metropolis on VHS and bring it to some shop that convert it on DVD. But this will be a second phase of my compulsive shoping, I've already spent too much money yesterday after the bad news about B%S :):)
13th-May-2011 09:42 pm (UTC)
And there I went getting my hopes up again for nothing. I hate them for even telling us that there was supposedly hope for a shortened season. Its bad enough to find out that they arent going to be back. I wish we'd known before this season ended so I could cherish it more while I watched the last episodes. I hate this. I miss Kevin and Scotty already.
13th-May-2011 09:58 pm (UTC)
::Hugs:: Darn, I need a group hug now!
13th-May-2011 10:01 pm (UTC)
>---Hugs---< back at you. Im game. Im so bummed, Im about in tears. Darned them for getting into my heart like that.
13th-May-2011 11:14 pm (UTC)
*** Darned them for getting into my heart like that. ***

I love all the Walkers, especially Kevin/Scotty, I think the news hasn't hit me yet. I'm completely numb.
13th-May-2011 11:11 pm (UTC)
A hug from me as well. Photobucket
13th-May-2011 11:41 pm (UTC)
Thanks hon!! *Grope hugs*... no, I mean *group hugs*!
I sometimes think if there's really a God, HE's really playing games with me the last ten months. If ABC is not giving me K/S, I'm going to get it myself, that's how things have been lately, I can't get lower at this point. I'm gonna write them, and now *I* can turn back time. I'm much determined now cuz I do have 200 words written. I just need to finish them.
14th-May-2011 08:52 am (UTC)
On a spiritual level, the cancellation of B&S seems to come at a right time in MY life. I'm making changes, taking charge again, I dare to dream about my future again and I feel as if the cancellation of B&S is, at least for me, the confirmation that should get closure of a dark time in my life, where Kevin/Scotty and my daughter were my bright shining beacons that sailed me through rough dark waters.

But I've been thinking about writing more about the cancellation and my own personal path in my other LJ - Syliris - later today, as this is not the place. ;)
13th-May-2011 10:06 pm (UTC)
Ghosh its a disturbin news :( after me slagging off season 5 now i think atleast K/S were together sort of if u get my drift :( cant belive its GONE yet !!!!!!! and we could never see kevin and scotty together ever again ! EVERY THING SHOULD COME TO END SO DOES MY FANTACY ! also my obsession wit these two ! i suck at Goodbyes and i need more WINE! glad that i am not alone in missing em :(
13th-May-2011 11:12 pm (UTC)
No, you're not alone, don't worry. There are SO many others who feel the same. :(
14th-May-2011 01:54 am (UTC)
Hon, I just heard about 'Outsourced' got cancelled as well. ::Hugs::
Sorry to hear that. Amazon was giving me hell and I need to go rant and then go to bed. TTYL.
14th-May-2011 08:44 am (UTC)
I'm sad for Parvesh and the crew of "Outsourced". Like the B&S crew, they seemed like such a family. They would clowing around with each other, they often tweeted with and about each other and posted pictures of each other.... Sigh. Too sad.
14th-May-2011 03:27 pm (UTC)
I feel sad too...
how is my life w/o kevin & Scotty in future...sigh...
I know I'm going to miss them very much....
14th-May-2011 06:23 pm (UTC)
Yes. Me too. (Sad sigh)
14th-May-2011 08:42 pm (UTC)
Oh, gosh! I didn't know! I feel like I'm gonna cry, now. Sorry, I read that thing about the abriged season, and was so sure about that, I felt relieved, and wanted closure. I guess I won't get it. I'll watch the season finale as the series finale, then. I'll post something more coherent about it later.
29th-May-2011 09:08 pm (UTC)
I don't know. I was hurt when it ended, it literally made me sick to think that I would no longer see Matthew Rhys and Luke Macfarlane act together, but... all good thing must come to an end.

This last season was just not good (IMO). And I've grown to dislike characters that I used to like (Kitty, Sarah), the non-kissing between Kevin/Scotty annoyed the hell out of me. Especially considering the many times that Sarah/Luc got to suck face. THAT couple got so on my nerves so badly that I hardly could stand to watch them.

And reading what DMG had planned for season 6:
- more Kevin/Scotty parenting, which equals more no kissing
- Kitty sick and pregnant, possibly dying
- Sarah meeting Brody's family, as if Lori Lynn wasn't obnoxious enough. I want my Walkers not the Brody-clan.
- Justin/Tyler not running smoothly.

I'm glad the show ended when it did. Now I can dream on! :)

My first reaction was a punch in the gut, so to speak. But then, after a few days (and real life invading my thoughts 200% i.e. sex scandal involving a politician) I completely forgot about it, which sort of prevented me from taking the problem too much at heart.

I looked back at it with a new eye. Sad, but okay with it, because from the moment Baitz was fired, the new show-runners changed the premise of the show, the intention behind it, the same happened with many shows, a good example is Lost. Of course, not 100% of it can be bad, and I even admit the episode with Nora and Justin plotting a DNA test behind Sarah's back was quite funny, but really Sarah not being William's daughter is a bad idea in itself for so many reasons. Of course, they were looking for conflict, but they focused on outside conflicts instead of characters' conflict, which is even more of a waste because they made them happen but resolved them too fast. Way too fast! I could list everything that was wrong in my opinion, but I don't see the point. I'll focus my energy on the ideas that sprang up in mind-- the good thing that came out of the cancellation for me!

PS: I'll miss Matthew, and Sally and Calista the most. I still haven't gotten to watch the series' finale, it seems so... final. :(
