This summer, through the wonderful thing that is guerrilla advertising, I was introduced to a show called Keen Eddie on Fox. From the very first episode I was hooked. The show had an interesting premise, a new kind of setting (London, England), the necessary hot girl, competent writing, and an “edgy” (buzz word alert!) production style that I grew to love after some initial hesitance. Unfortunately, the powers that be at Fox deemed the show unworthy for my eyes (or perhaps my eyes unworthy for the show?), and won’t even let me gaze upon the next four episodes which have already been completed.
I’d like to go off and try to guess why this show, which I’ve found to have quite a following, couldn’t make it, why it couldn’t survive in a summer of repeats and reality shows, and why Fox couldn’t just give it a small chance in the prime Fall lineup. However, since I’m not an industry insider and since I’m too wrapped up in my emotions right now, I thought I’d share an article that I found to be quite helpful and the slightest bit comforting. Who knows, maybe they’ll release the 8+ episodes they have on DVD.
Oh, and let me just add here that Fox has almost … I said almost … redeemed themselves with The O.C.. But now that Smallville has moved to Wednesdays, Tuesday night would make a great night for a Keen Eddie / O.C. double header. (Incidentally, I hear Fox is moving The O.C. to Thursdays opposite C.S.I. … Are they mad?). Oh well, I guess thems are the breaks.
