So a sad rumor leaked today for all of us Sarah Connor Chronicles fans (the few! The proud!). Apparently Fox is fed up with the show's low ratings -- particularly the fact that it's not being watched by those sexy 18 to 49-year-olds advertisers are obsessed with for no good reason. They're also terrified that the show is bringing down their beloved Prison Break's ratings by being a less than stellar lead-in. So they're pretty much just going to cancel it, possibly as early as tomorrow. Literally. Tomorrow. It's no secret that the show is inconsistent and has a lot of storytelling problems, and I'm still in the camp that believes Lena Headey was miscast as Sarah Connor (I do, however, think she's a good actress. I just don't think she's right for this particular role), but Summer Glau and Brian Austin Green are fantastic, and so are a lot of the other actors and characters. The show has many, many moments of sheer fun, and I honestly do kind of miss it already. Wow, sorry to go all Maudlin Mindy all over everyone. I didn't mean to! Now go watch some cyborgs get the party started after the jump!
At first, the news that ABC would be remaking Charlie's Angels made me roll my eyes in annoyance at yet another remake, as I'm sure it caused most people to do, but after looking closer at the story, I kind of think it could be fun. Josh Friedman, former showrunner of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, is writing and executive producing this remake as well, and he's actually a very smart guy, and a good writer, despite Terminator's storytelling missteps. At the very least, he writes women well, and as long he doesn't fall into the traps of turning Charlie's Angels into a character melodrama, as Fox's Terminator budget cuts forced him to on that show, this could be the kick-ass, female-driven, addictive series that Dollhouse was supposed to be, if they're careful, and if they cast it right. I can't write the scripts for them, but I can tell you who has Angel potential and who is Olivia Wilde (for example). Here are our Charlie's Angels casting hopes and dreams.
