There is a God

Variety reports that NBC’s cop show HAWAII has been cancelled. 1hawaxn04

We should start seeing the full-page advertisements from the fans, clamoring for its return as a feature film with the original cast, appearing in the trades in about 25 years. Mark your calenders.

Ivan Sergei is now officially tied with Jason Gedrick as the kiss of death for any TV show.

  1. I’m going to launch the “Hawaii” campaign right after I raise the cash for a full-page advertisement in Daily Variety demanding that the Hollywood power elite bring back “Space 1999” as a motion picture with the original cast. Martin Landau and Barbara Bain rock. Or are they rocks?

  2. If only they’d have hired Michael Dudikoff (sp?) as their lead. They’d be the biggest thing on network television since COED FEVER, by God.
    (Is it a badge of shame that I actually remember COED FEVER? It had, for its time, the shortest run on network television: 3 episodes at a time when shows almost always got 13.)

  3. No surprise here — Hawaii was clearly awful based on the previews alone. Good riddance to it.
    NBC is so desperate right now…How bad is Joey? Ugh! The people running that show have no clue. What a shame.

    Sorry, Jim. A decade earlier, TURN-ON lasted only one episode. It was quite the topic of conversation among my classmates (the cancellation, not the show).

  5. Don’t blame Ivan Sergei; blame it on the show being crap in just about every possible way. Now, if only NBC would dump LAX too. TV Guide wrote of this one, “We’ve spent more enjoyable hours in baggage claim.” Still, I optimistically figured that it couldn’t be *that* bad. I mean, the presence of Blair Underwood and Heather Locklear should at least make it watchable.
    Then I saw the show. Boy, was I wrong.
