    Just caught an ad on the cable network Trio that December will be "Brilliant But Cancelled" month. They will be showing episodes from a handful of shows given the boot by the networks. Two of my favorite cancelled series are represented: Action and The Famous Teddy Z.

    I hope this goes well, and they make a habit of showcasing deserving shows that made it less than one season.

    Trio is absolutely kicking butt. They just replayed the first season of Profit, and they're going to play the whole season of Action in Brilliant but Cancelled, the set of series that got axed before their time. I've been trying for years to find anyone who had taped Profit. I loved that show so much! Now I have the whole season on tape! (If only I had it on a pvr so I could dvd-ram it... oh, well.) Now Action and Gun are coming on, along with other shows that I didn't know about, but they should be good too. Did anyone else watch Profit? It is sooooo good. They're going to replay the whole season on dec. 23. And Action with Jay Mohr was supa good too...

    YAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY!!!!!! Trio Rules!

    They're also replaying a show from 1963-64 that I don't think has been seen in years: East Side/West Side starring George C. Scott (yes, Patton himself) as a New York City social worker. The guest stars and supporting players feature a lot of familiar faces (much younger, of course; recognizing them can be a challenge). Filmed in black and white, the series is a fascinating piece of history -- not only of the time it portrayed but of how TV shows of that era were paced, performed and edited.

    When Profit was on it was my absolute favorite show. That guy was very disturbed.

    I just caught the Brilliant But Canceled documentary program tonight. It was really interesting to see what the network folks are thinking...or aren't thinking. Highly recommended viewing.

    Hmm, what is Trio anyway, I just got Direct TV hooked up after the local cable company called me a video pirate and now that I have Direct TV with the Total Choice Plus I have all kinds of new channels and Trio is included.
