EW: “Canceled TV Shows That Ended on Major Cliffhangers”: V and Revolution

V and Revolution made into EW top list of 25 “Canceled TV Shows That Ended on Major Cliffhangers”.

The alien occupation drama lasted two seasons before getting axed. In its series finale, Erica (Elizabeth Mitchell) manages to escape the release of the Bliss, the Visitor Queen Anna’s (Morena Baccarin) special telepathic ability to mind-control the masses, only to leave the bunker at the end of the episode to find that everyone above ground has been pacified, and that more alien motherships are on their way. Like The Event, V ended with a promise of an epic war between the underground humans and the Visitors, but that never made it to the screen. —Shirley Li

Cancelling V was actually a crime. Still not over it! Just imagine how amazing Elizabeth could have been when Erica found out about her son’s death. They stole that performance from us! So glad there’s a woman as president on ABC now and the one who axed V is no longer there.

Although NBC’s post-apocalyptic drama waned in viewership and quality during its second season, that doesn’t make Revolution‘s lingering cliffhangers any less painful. The nanotech that had been responsible for leaving the world without power was slowly taking over and causing people to see visions of their loved ones telling them to travel to Bradbury, Idaho. The finale ended with a shot of Bradbury, Idaho seeing power restored and crowds of people walking toward the light. (True, a 4-part comic was released this summer to give some conclusion, but it’s not quite the same as a season 3.) —Dalene Rovenstine

The comics were horrible. They killed Rachel and Miles had a child with another woman. Unacceptable! Rachel deseved better, but writers never understood that.  The cliffhanger was so much better.

Anyway Erica and Rachel were both terrific. Liz always chooses to play amazing roles and converts them into the most incredibly unique women. We are so proud of her!

12 leaders we’d follow into battle against the aliens: Erica Evans

Happy 4th of July to all our american readers! As today is Indipendence Day, we found this article about Erica Evans and aliens invasion. Nice! 😉

12 leaders we’d follow into battle to fight for independence from aliens

As we head into Independence Day, it’s a good time to sit back and think about all the great sci-fi warriors who have fought for our freedom over the years. So who would we want leading the charge against alien invaders?
There are a lot of options out there, but a few leaders have proven their mettle time and time again when it comes to facing off with everything from skitters to body-snatching baddies.
As you fire up the grill and get ready to watch some fireworks, let us know who you’d want calling the shots if E.T. came knocking with ill intent.

Erica Evans: V (2009)

For all its faults, this reboot of this sci-fi classic reimagined the concept a bit and gave us Elizabeth Mitchell’s ass-kicking version of Erica Evans. She battled the Vs all the way until the series’ cancellation, and kept her wits about her even when the whole world thought the Vs were just here to help.

Will networks ever wrap up story lines of ‘V’ and ‘The Event’?

http://static.deseretnews.com/images/article/sidebar/538265/Charles-Mesure-and-Elizabeth-Mitchell-starred-in.jpgQ: With the cancellation of “V” and “The Event,” are we to imagine the ending, or will they ever present an ending to these two shows?

A: I would recommend you give your imagination a workout. There has been talk about an “Event” miniseries to wrap up that NBC series’ story line, but the most lively talk involved it being picked up by NBC’s corporate sibling, Syfy, and that speculation was later shot down.

“V,” meanwhile, is one of those shows where I would never say never. Although ABC has no plans for a wrap-up, it’s a concept that began with miniseries in 1983 and 1984, became a weekly series later in 1984-85, and was revived in 2009 as a weekly series. The series continued into 2010 and was brought back for a second season in 2011 before ABC dropped it. There’s been enough ongoing interest that I could see at least a TV movie to continue the present run, although there is nothing definite at this writing.

That said, this overall issue of unresolved serials comes up just about every TV season. Audiences are drawn to some serialized shows. “The Event,” for example, aimed at the “Lost” audience after that show ended. But if the audience is not large enough to satisfy the show’s network, then it may be canceled before all the plot threads are tied up.

V on TNT? Fans rally to save illegal aliens!

With Warner’s ”V” being cancelled by ABC after 2 seasons and 23 episodes, fans have started a letter writing campaign to save the show by getting it picked up by TNT which is also a subsidiary of Time Warner.

www.ilanasvsite.com is spearheading this campaign named “Project Alice” :

“Project Alice’s goal has always been to get V renewed for a third season, no matter which network. Now that ABC has cancelled V, it’s time to continue our plea to Warner Bros. to shop V to other interested parties.”

With TNT giving Steven Spielberg’s ”Falling Skies” a two season commitment, this may prove to be the right fit to save ”V”. Let’s face it, sci-fi shows have rarely fared well on the Big 3 networks. But on other networks such as the CW, FOX and Sy FY, shows such as ”The X-Files”, ”Battlestar Galactica”, ”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, ”Angel” and ”Smallville” found an audience and enjoyed successful runs.

“V” is a brand name and does have a loyal following and I believe that on basic cable has the elements to be successful.

With a creatively strong second season, ”V” original Marc Singer appearing on the season/series finale and show runner Scott Rosenbaum promising a more action-oriented third season, there is a strong case to save ”V”.

10 TV Shows That Shouldn’t Have Been Cancelled: V

V is number 2 among Syfy’s list of 10 TV Shows that shouldn’t have been cancelled.

2. V (2010)
V is an interesting case, because the cancellation actually improves an already good show. No, seriously, it gives the series a memorable dark ending. Instead of having a silly and unbelievable happy ending, or fading away randomly, it’s a tale of a doomed resistance and the last days of humanity. It has that rarity, a realistically bleak ending, which even Battlestar Galactica didn’t really get. That’s a good thing, though it would have been nice to have another season or two beforehand.

Now that ‘V’ is canceled, what should Elizabeth Mitchell do next?

Like an adorable child forced by love and honor to shoot the beloved family dog that has gone mad from rabies, ABC has finally canceled V. I can’t say I’m too unhappy about the end of the alien-invasion reboot. The show didn’t really have much going for it, besides a completely insane series finale that hilariously killed half the main cast. More importantly, the show’s demise gives series standout Elizabeth Mitchell the chance to find another job on a different TV show. Mitchell was by far the best thing about V, and it seems like she’d be a great addition to any TV series. But what would you like to see Elizabeth Mitchell do next?

Part of me wants to see Mitchell hop into an already-successful show that could benefit from her playfully terse style. I’d love to see her join her old Lost castmate Daniel Dae Kim on Hawaii Five-0, a fun lark that could use a stronger female presence. (Come on, who doesn’t want to see Boomer and Juliet team up against the Five-0 boys’ club?) Conversely, Mitchell has usually been the funniest person on resolutely non-funny shows, so maybe her next move would be to take the Rob Lowe path into comedy. Perhaps she could be a nemesis for Jules on Cougar Town, or the head of an opposing study group on Community? (Wouldn’t she be a great Office boss?)

In my ideal world, Mitchell could get a role on the second season of AMC’s The Killing or The Walking Dead — both shows seem like good fits for the actress. (She lives around Seattle, and The Killing is set in Seattle. Just sayin’.) But you could also argue that the lady deserves her own freaking show, already — perhaps a gritty FX-style serial-procedural like Justified, or a resolutely non-gritty USA-style procedural quirkfest.

What would you like to see Elizabeth Mitchell do next, PopWatchers?

6 TV Female Characters I Wish I Was Married To If I Was Into Women

As a personal preference, I don’t swing that way. But while most of my celebrity crushes are those of the male variety, that doesn’t mean I don’t watch my favorite shows without having attraction to some pretty awesome female characters.Because let’s be honest – in a world where women are becoming stronger and more powerful, it’s considered pretty amazing to have so many of them to look up to. Last week, I brought you my list of 6 tv male characters that I wished I was married to. This week, I present my list of 6 female tv characters that I wish I was married to. And yes, some were just so awesome that I couldn’t resist bending the rules of the usual criteria yet again to include them.

2. JULIET BURKE (LOST)

Just as I have a thing for bad boys, it seems that tough girls make up most of my list. Go figure.

When Juliet was introduced on LOST, she appealed to me in part because of her independence and level-headed nature. She wasn’t just another whiney female who spent her time vying for men’s attention – she was strong, sassy, and she had a certain air about her that was both dangerous and charming.

Juliet was an amazingly complex character, and for a large portion of the series, you couldn’t identify her as being good or evil, something which made her entirely attractive to me. She was proficient in self-defense and gunfire, she could take charge in a face-off, and she always stood up for her beliefs and feelings when it mattered. She was truly the girl who you looked at and found attractive in so many ways.

6. ERICA EVANS (V)

Yes, Elizabeth Mitchell is so awesome in my book that I had to include two of her characters in this list. I promise, however, that I did not do that intentionally.

I seem to have a thing for female FBI agents, and Erica fits right into that category. A single mother (who also happens to be a fighter for the entire human race against an undeniable alien invasion), Erica is pretty hardcore and intense, especially when she goes after what she wants. She’s passionate about what she cares about – her family and the people she loves in her life – and would go to the ends of the earth to protect them.

And fitting in with a ton of guys? Not a problem. She takes charge in a way that makes people stop and watch, throws down punches, and shoots people with no remorse…I mean, hell, the woman leads an entire human resistance!

Finding the line between who I would actually want to marry versus who I just adored and lusted after was a little hard (hence why my list was long, and why some characters – aka, Olivia Dunham – didn’t make the cut.) But I’ll save my ramblings for another time, as I already have gone on too long.

What are some of your tv “girl crushes” and who would you like to marry? Don’t be shy…we all have our favorites, and I want to hear yours below!
