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...

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... :(

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!

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...

According to one of the featurettes she didn't sing.

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 :).

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 :):)
