Just Sayin'--Some sad news

Well, no sooner after I sang the praises of Sym-Bionic Titan, word has come that the show is canceled, and more than likely the last 2 episodes to be burnt off on Saturdays will be the end of the show (not even a DVD, damn-it-all) and, given what happened last week, one expects the that the earth behind it shall be scorched something fierce.

I was somewhat amused that one of the reasons given for Titan not making it was because "it didn't have enough toys connected to it." This is interesting to me, mainly because NO ONE BOTHERED TO FUCKING MAKE ANY, thus ensuring a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Shame that, because Titan was a pretty toy-etic show, I thought. You had three robots, monsters, multiple Titan modes . . .yeah, why not take advantage of that? The Titan itself is a slick enough piece of design that it screams "make this a toy."

But oh well. We got plenty of good episodes, and a show that never would have worked had you just read the synopsis (Voltron meets Sixteen Candles) worked splendidly. And it's better that it had a small run, and it can be remembered fondly by the people who caught it, maybe shared with others, and it'll inspire someone else to do something cool.

And we'll always have this, of course:

Yes, I know I posted it last month, but really, it's everything Titan was good at in one nice little package.
