Which one gets cancelled first?

I really want this one to succeed. I never watched Reunion, but Iím beginning to imagine how that showís fans felt once the show got cancelled. Itís difficult to invest in a serial drama knowing it could get dropped without the story resolving. That said, Iím worried about Vanished. Itís slow, relative to 24 and Prison Breakís first seasons. It scored poorly this week after Bushís address, and I hope this wasn't the beginning of the end. The sheer number of characters makes it a little overwhelming. Iím hooked enough to want to watch Senator Walt Cummings and to know who Sara Collins is.

For a show that carries such heavy central conflicts, its pretty weird and maybe a little unsettling to see how light and cute it is when it deals with the romance angle. Iím enjoying this show a lot, though. All of the characters are sharp and the dialogue is pretty witty. Ron Livingston is great and Iím already falling in love with Rosemarie Dewitt. But Gina Torres is the champ of this one. How long can it last, given its subject matter?

Justice is pretty slick. I wonder how much longevity it has as a procedural. I mean, you gotta think that thereís only so many tricks of the trade you can show before the show becomes more about the crimes and their swerves. But as it is now, itís pretty good. The visual stylization is in the vein(s and arteries) of CSI. The central cast is only four characters strong and they scowl too much. Wise-cracking Victor Garber is a winner.

I've caught "Justice"- I'm a sucker for the Ron Trott/Denny Crane type lawyer. Garber is good, but no one else really stands out.

And the premise to "Standoff" is so hokey, I couldn't even consider watching it (despite the presence of Ron Livingston).

In my mind, Ron Livingston will forever be typecast as Peter Gibbons. I always expect him to blow off whatever he's doing & head over to Chochkie's.
