So Shows Are Getting Uncancelled Now?  
For whatever reason, Ripper Street which got cancelled after a truly terrible 2nd season got pulled from the trash can and is getting a third season.

I tried to stick with this show, especially after they cast Damian Molony (I still miss you, Hal!) as a semi-regular. I'm not sure if he'll be returning for season 3 but Louise Brealey is joining the cast. I'm torn. A part of me wants to watch her and her character sounds very cool. But this show is notoriously awful at writing female characters. I'm not sure if I want to see them take a good character on paper and trample all of over it. I'll wait to see what others say before venturing.

If the BBC is reversing cancellation decisions, how's about we take another look at Being Human or Merlin?

You're probably wise to wait.

What else could they do with Being Human? I still miss Hal too! And Alex and Tom! I'm just not sure where they'd go after they ended it. (I take the extra scene as canon: they're still stuck in a fantasy world and there's no clear way for them to survive, but they are going to save the world though it kills them.)

I wouldn't mind seeing them try to beat the devil again! But in all seriousness, I think the show can give us maybe a TV film or a short miniseries to wrap up. I know Hal, Tom, and Alex are going to fight tooth and nail to escape and I want to see the follow through on it.

I'd go for that!
