Apparently I was one of only 5 or 6 people in the country watching this show. First the bad news, I'm all wrapped up in the show now, and I find out it was basically canceled before it even started. The good news is, unlike Reunion, where the network there gave the finger to everyone who watched it (yeah, fuck you too, Fox), they actually let the producers wrap the storyline up. So instead of a possible ongoing show, what we basically got is an 8 episode miniseries.

Which is all too bad, in the grand scheme of tv. Ok, you can certainly pick out problems with the plot, the implausible evidence that just happens to be in the right place at the right time, but that's not the point. It's a fun show about a couple of decent guys on the run from a massive govt conspiracy. It's fast paced and fun with a lot of twists and turns, explosions and bad ass rogue agents. What's not to like? I've DVR'd plenty of shows over the last few years that I just never cared about watching, but I've been watching Traveler as soon as it's recorded each week. If you get a chance to get the 8-episode run on Netflix, I would recommend it.

You haven't watched The Wire yet, but you've got time for this crap? I tried to watch it, but it just wasn't interesting. The overall plot was not bad, but the plot development pretty much sucked, and the characters were all pretty boring. As soon as I heard it was getting canceled, I gave up trying to watch it anymore.

While there aren't any decent shows on during the summer, watch The Wire, you won't be sorry. Watch Deadwood too, while you're at it. Actually, there's a whole catalog of great HBO shows that you never watched, Rome, Carnivale, The Sopranos, Six Feet Under.
