Sucks! I'm so pissed. It's definitely about the ratings and overall lack of buzz. Dead horses my ass. Let's cancel the James Bond movies because stunt men died on the last production
What a crock.

There had better be some closure or I'll never watch a Milch show again-- until its established and then on BD.

That's your opinion.
...and probably of many others but not mine. I think it would have picked up an audience given a chance and seeing how it has been coming together.
The dead horses excuse is just nonsense. They caved.
I can't stand hearing from those who think horse racing is cruel. Take a hike. That's my opinion. I bet they enjoy boxing- but that's not the point. People in the film industry take every care possible to protect these animals today
. And the horse industry loves their animals and will do anything for them. I can cite many real examples-- like the one that was portrayed in this past weeks episode-- with the saving of old horses. I have friends, trainers, who have spent their own time and money rescuing retired horses from slaughter and relocating them to a long happy retirement.
The problem is, the wrong people watched the show and expected something different and dragged it down with their whining- not just here but on all of the entertainment "bloggs" where it's seen and registered. It would have been better if the haters would have gotten lost sooner and let the targeted demo build-- like other cable shows have done.
