26 August 2007 | by eastonhodgesSee all my reviews

This show was shaping up to be really outstanding, and I cannot believe that HBO gave up on it after only one season. Once the story matured, people would be glued to their sets. I hate to see the best television station cancel their best new show made by a director who has delivered for them before (Deadwood). HBO shouldn't claim to be above normal paid-cable channels if they're going to play by the normal standards of network television. I just wish HBO would have stuck up for their most compelling dramatic series. The fact that Jon From Cincinnati was canceled after season one really makes the season not worthwhile. It's a very good show but watching will leave you with a fatty case of blue balls.
