Thought they came to get wet, get loaded and get some, the staff and patrons get more than they bargained for when they must face the fiercest, most bloodthirsty piranhas yet.

Fox Hands Out Pink Slips; Slater Cries on Bed of Roses

According to E!Online and several other media outlets, the end of the line is here for cult fave The Chicago Code. Fox has announced that the cop shop will not return in the fall along with dramas Lie to Me, Human Target and comedies Breaking In and Traffic Light.

None of the shows being canceled are surprising considering the ratings were never there to begin with. If we had to be surprised on a show, it might have been The Chicago Code, because it was a universally liked show and as a midseason replacement, Fox might give it another shot but alas, it was not meant to be. Personally, I never got into Lie to Me or Human Target.

With Breaking In, it looks to see Christian Slater continues in his failed conversion to television. Maybe that will open the door to Kuffs 2. Maybe a Hollow Man 3. I did like Traffic Light though but not necessarily enough to complain about it being canceled. Although it wouldn’t be as awesome as The Wizard 2.

As for the replacements for the fall lineup, Fox has announced a few including a Bones spinoff called The Finder, which was based off an episode that aired earlier this season. It stars Geoff Stults, the dude with the sailor vows in Wedding Crashers. He’s also from Detroit, so Kronner will probably watch it now because of loyalty to the D ,and his odd affection for Bones.

The next J.J. Abrams drama –  Alcatraz will also be on the fall slate, with comedies I Hate My Teenage Daughter starring Jaime Pressly

and The New Girl with Zooey Deschanel.

Here is Zooey pictured with her sister Bones.

That’s a lot of hipster going on the Fox fall slate. Personally, I’d like a television adaptation of Broken Arrow. We need to get Christian Slater some work! He can reunite with newly unemployed Chicago Code star Delroy Lindo!

Okay I’ll stop.

Give It a Chance: ‘Breaking In’

Every year, without fail we are subjected to a plethora of shoddy TV series and network hopefuls, and almost every year these shows fail. Low ratings, terrible stories, or zero network backing are the main reasons for a show to fail, and sometimes, it’s just not fair. Ask Doc about Terriers and you’ll understand what I’m talking about.

So I figured to try to fight this yearly slump of terrible shows and apathetic viewers, it makes sense to highlight the different series that I think are worth their time slot, in order to make it easier for you to weed through the crap and find the gold. So that brings us to the first show I encourage you to try out this season.

Breaking In stars Bret Harrison (Reaper), Odette Annable (who used to go by Odette Yustman in Cloverfield and The Unborn), and Christian Slater, who really had nowhere else to go but TV. Breaking In tells the story of Cam (Harrison), a high-profile computer hacker who is selected to work at ‘Contra Security’, a company that specializes in testing out their client’s security systems, hence the clever name of the show. Now why should you watch this show above all other newcomers this season?
