Save Life On Mars (us edition) sign now

The American adaptation of Life On Mars has been canceled.

I, for one, refuse to accept this. Reality programming, teeny dramas, and political punditry are apparently the only things that qualify as entertainment anymore; I find this notion beyond offensive.

With the proliferation of brainless, talentless, meaningless "reality" programming, I`m forced to wonder what would the literary equivalent be... Newspapers, i suppose. And where would human history and society be without literature... Only news... No Twain, Tolkien, Wilde, Shakespeare...

Life On Mars is, from tip to tip, one of the best television shows to grace North American airwaves in years. Every aspect. From the dedication to continuity in set design, costuming, vernacular, music, styles, and on, Life On Mars conveys such a lush, rich, vibrant ambiance.

Further, the show is brilliantly cast. It is brilliantly written, performed, and executed in every way. The chemistry and acting of the cast is phenomenal. The story is simultaneously sad, happy, funny, gripping, intriguing, compelling, and entertaining in every way. From one episode to the next, the characters become more endearing and enmeshed in our lives. The storytelling becomes more gripping with every installment.

With such a deficit of talented writing and acting in mainstream media, how dare ABC cancel such a brilliant production? I refuse to accept this. I insist you allow this show to complete its' season, and renew it for at least one more. This show deserves a chance to grow.

Arrested Development, Carnivale, Surface, all brilliant shows cut down before their time. Seinfeld was nearly canceled after its' first season, and look how that turned out. Family Guy DID get canceled, then brought back, and look how THAT turned out.

ABC, we implore you, don't demean yourself by dropping Life On Mars in favor of... well, anything else. No one needs "Who Wants To Be An Amazing Race Bachelor Idol Dancing With Big Brother Moles".

Thank you.

    Life on Mars is a great show. My husband and I look forward to watching it every week. The actors are awesome; especially Harvey Keitel, who's my favorite! Why would ABC make a dumb decision to take "Life on Mars" off the air. I'm also a viewer of Brother

    Please reconsider ending one of the best shows on TV. There are so few good thought AND emotion provoking shows anymore. LOM deserves way more time on TV than one short season. Please.....please rethink this foolish decision.

  • 10 March 201575. Paul B
    I hope that the programmers at ABC realize the possibility of Life On Mars becoming another slow-to-catch-on but ultimately-huge-hit program like Cheers and Seinfeld. Please don't cancel this quality show!
