You can only fish for so long till you have to throw in a stick of dynamite [Aug. 23rd, 2008|12:24 am]

It's Moonlight all over again. Well, kinda.

I was just starting to settle into Eureka and changing form a casual viewer to a fan. And now my favorite character died. I thought it was cheap writing but now I've heard that the actor actually wanted to leave. Wow, I'm so pissed at Ed Quinn right now. What actor is crazy enough to leave a regular spot on a well running show where everyone loves his character? It's like Michael Shanks leaving Stargate to persue a big career... that obviously never happend. So he came back. Of course I wish Quinn the best for his future but that was really dumb if you ask me.

This changes the situation a little bit, of course, but dude, David Caruso was getting flak for that for practically a decade when he left NYPD Blue after Season 1. I still don't get how he managed to land the lead role on CSI Miami and become a TV star once more (after his big-screen career failed). Totally redeemed now.

You can't force an actor to stay, but if you're fan, of course you cringe when he's making bad career decisions. And if you're a fan of the show, that hurts twice. The key is to not get attached to the, uhm, car. :P Which is of course the one and only purpose of a TV serial in the first place, to get hooked and devoted like crazy!
