Staying Awake Creates a Nightmare

This post is simply one to complain.


A couple months ago, I began watching the television show Awake. The premise—a man is in a car accident with his family and finds himself in two realities where one has his wife surviving the crash and the other his son surviving the crash, every time he falls asleep and wakes up he finds himself in the other reality—seemed perfect for all sorts of fun plot lines.


And it is! Some of the episodes of this show have been so intense I can't believe it. Over the past few weeks, I kept thinking that I was watching the season finale of the show each time it aired. But it wasn't. That's how good this show is.


So where's my complaint?


Here it is: The show has been cancelled!


Nooooooooooo!!!!


Now, I will get over it. But with today's multiple avenues to watch TV, can we really trust Nielsen all the way? Can a network allow a show to go off the air because they can't track the complete number of potential viewers now and in the future? Netflix. Hulu. And so on. The answer is, "Yes they can."


So I am disappointed the show is done (the finale airs this Thursday), but it looks like the writers at least have a chance to wrap up the show properly instead of having a cliffhanger that ends up like Alcatraz (which is also cancelled by the way).


If you haven't watched Awake, do yourself a favor and watch it. You will not be disappointed.
