I knew ABC would cancel “Invasion” before I even watched it. I always hesitate to watch a new drama, since so few make it to Season 2.
But since I loved Shaun Cassidy’s “American Gothic” I had to go for it. Creepy sherrif and a small town, that is what Shawn does best!
Sure enough, it got cancelled. Even left us with a cliffhanger. Thankfully, TV Guide’s Michael Ausiello spoke with Tyler Labine (who played Larkin’s blogger/slacker brother Dave) and here is what he said:
…Now, while I was talking to Tyler Labine about Boston Legal, the Chatty Cathy shared with me a personal conversation he had with series creator Shaun Cassidy about what would have happened during Season 2 of Invasion. True, I wasn’t exactly the most religious Invasion viewer, but I know big scoop when I hear it: “Shaun told me Larkin was going to [be presumed dead]. I was going to get all militant and shave my head, and Russell and I were going to join forces against Tom. Tom was going to find out that his first wife was actually alive, and she was running this whole military operation, and she was Szura’s boss.” That’s big scoop, right?
I can’t say I feel much better knowing that. I still think I wasted my time.
This season, I taking on ZERO new shows. None. Nada. Zilch.
We’ll see how that goes.
