‘Human Target’ and Others Cancelled by Fox

Sad day indeed.  First we here at Cinema Static and our readers lose Stargate Universe to lousy ratings.  (You’ll see my dissection of that scenario in a future post.)  But now news on the street is that Fox has added Human Target, starring Mark Valley to the halls of canceled TV series.

I had come to enjoy Human Target and they had started developing the characters in a very productive fashion and I was enjoying it more in the second season than the first.

But alas, another Cinema Static favorite has spiraled out of control and cratered in the land of cancelled shows.

Boo.  I was really starting to enjoy Jackie Earle Haley‘s portrayal of Guerrero too!  We’ll be seeing more of Jackie Earle Haley in the upcoming movies, Dance of the Mirlitons, Bolden! & the Tim Burton directed Dark Shadows remake.  We’ll be seeing Mark Valley in the upcoming project, Medallion, on the silver screen.

Other shows that did not survive the chopping block was Christian Slater‘s desperate comedic series, Breaking In… which means bad news for Michael Rosenbaum fans.  I really wish that Slater would get into a show that has legs.

I had checked out Breaking In, and it did not appeal to me at any level.  Too snippy.  It felt like it was trying to be too smart-ass all the time with all the characters and that became old real fast.  I thought it…  well, I only watched one episode and I didn’t even tune in for the NASCAR-themed episode.

Also chopped…  The Chicago Code.

The shows were pushed aside so that Fox could make room for the Bones spinoff and another J.J. Abrams series, Alcatraz.
