Goodbye little scary robot show.

With Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles officially canceled and any hope of a Jericho-style fan resurrection unlikely, it seemed that no joy could now come from the burial of this great show. Until, that was, I read the blackly humorous rant of show creator and producer Josh Friedman:

Everyone says having your show cancelled is like a death but I've been dead before and at least when you're dead you don't get thrown off the Warner Bros. lot for haunting your old parking space ... Losing your show is more like a surprise divorce where you get served papers in the morning and your (ex)wife is fucking Human Target by three in the afternoon using the same time slot your child was conceived in and also where she did that one thing that one time on your birthday.

A bitter rant from the man responsible for the show's cancellation or the honest outpouring of a man who's dream has prematurely ended?

There were definite signs of something when Josh answered a network question in this interview two months earlier, so maybe he is burning his bridges. Which is a shame as it might hinder his next project.
