    After ending last week's episode unresolved with an in-flight emergency, CBS has decided to pull the plug on this show. WTF? According to this report in today's Variety, the final six episodes are "expected" to air during the summer. [​IMG]

    Oh well thats a shame, I found the show mildly interesting, and was planning to tune in to see if wossname lived or died when his brakes failed (I suspect they survived [​IMG] )

    Like they have something better to put on. I hate it when a show with a continuing storyline gets pulled so soon.

    I agree, Micke. I don't anticipate them showing the remaining episodes at all. That's why I used the word expected in quotes. I suppose some magazine article will be published at some point saying whether all three of these guys on the show passed their training or not.

    Oh, that really pisses me off! First, I can never find anything on the tube Friday nite, so I was overjoyed to find this show on that was exactly what I'd love to watch! And now, after only 2 friggin' episodes, it's being pulled!?? Gimme a break.

    It looks like "The Court", with Sally Field, also got pulled (I think the article said it was "dismissed). I've never watched the show, but I know that they ran commercials hyping it for more than three weeks, so the hype lasted longer than the show.
