Too small to fail.

Hi, all.  I'm new to this community, having discovered it only after the bad news came down about cancellation.  I don't typically post episode reviews, participate in forums, or get in on the fan wank after I've seen something that grabs me by the throat or the heart or both.  I write fanfiction instead.

And so, I sought an audience that might appreciate my feelings about The Best Little Show That Couldn't.

alone in space - John (Farscape)
I found this great interview with (obviously pretty bummed) Ted Griffin, in which he discusses briefly what would have happened in season two. I would've loved to see episode 2x01 as he describes it :(

Behind the cut: spoilers for the last episode and ~beyond~

Sadly, it's official. Terriers has been cancelled after one season of creative brilliance but terrible ratings.

Naturally, I'm upset we won't get more of this phenomenal series, but I'm thrilled that we got to experience this season, and I honestly can't imagine a more perfect ending than the one we got. I'm looking forward to more fans discovering this little gem on DVD and through word-of-mouth, and I know I'll see love for Terriers pop up over and over in the coming years in the most unexpected places (I certainly know what will be taking one of my Yuletide nomination slots for the foreseeable future). 

Please keep using this comm for discussion, fic and graphics, and to introduce new fans to Hank, Britt, Katie, Gretchen, Mark, and all the other characters we came to love in such a short time.

Make sure to give some love to the cast and crew today and let them know how much we appreciate their work. And to help ease the pain, one week from Wednesday (at 10PM ET and PT) Shawn Ryan (@ShawnRyanTV) will hold a Twitter wake and answer all our Terriers questions - so come up with some good ones!

Hail Mary
Season 1 | Season Finale
Still reeling from his loss, Hank is out of options and out of time. Britt is faced with a decision that will change his future.

Feel free to use the comments for discussion, squee, encore viewing, and post-ep chat! I'll be in and out of the post throughout the evening.
30th-Nov-2010 12:17 pm - A message from the creators
~Terriers Blue
This message from Ted Griffin, Shawn Ryan, & Tim Minear was just posted on Alan Sepinwall's blog.
Dear "Terriers" watchers,

On the eve of our season finale -- and, as far as we know, it is a season finale -- we wanted to thank you for tuning in and supporting the show and, most of all, for embracing Hank and Britt with such enthusiasm and devotion. We're very proud of "Terriers" and are grateful/gratified it found an audience as intelligent, discerning and handsome as you. So, on behalf of all the actors and writers and directors and crew members and everyone who worked on the show, thanks. And we hope to do it again next year.

Ted Griffin & Shawn Ryan & Tim Minear

P.S. If you think of it, you might watch tomorrow's episode LIVE if you can; it's called (for no particular reason) "Hail Mary" and we hope you enjoy it. Also, if you happen to know a Nielsen family, this could be a great opportunity to reconnect by inviting yourself over to watch it at their place. Super too would be if when you got home after, you Hulu'd the show. Then gifted it via iTunes to everyone you love/can barely stand. Just a thought. It's what our mothers are doing.

I think the creators will be reading Alan's blog, so if you want to thank them for making a great show, that would be the place. I'm not all that hopeful for a renewal, but I'm damned grateful that people are trying so hard to make good TV.

The Terriers season finale airs this Wednesday, December 1, at 10PM on FX!

Any interest in a live viewing post? I feel like we're going to need some kind of support system if the finale is anything like the last episode :) 

Everyone should go check out Terrierists, a fan site run by
@watchterriers (aka @theonetruebix). It's one-stop shopping for show info, legal viewing options, and various ways to hopefully nudge FX towards making the right decision on our little show :)

Also, if you haven't done so already, please shoot an email to user@fxnetworks.com and let them know we want a second season! Oh, and if you're on Twitter, remember to use the #terriers hashtag when talking about the show, and especially if you're livetweeting (great way to connect with other Terriers fans and let the cast/crew know how much we love their work!).

411mania Interviews: Kimberly Quinn (Terriers)

411's Al Norton sits down with an exclusive interview with Kimberly Quinn of the new FX dramedy Terriers.



Al Norton: You filmed the whole show on location in Ocean Beach. How much do you think that adds to the feel of the show?

Kimberly Quinn: I think it's brilliant. I hear that it's more expensive to shoot like that but it adds a whole dynamic. It becomes like a character on the show. I know Donal really wanted it. When we were filming the pilot people were talking about building sets for different scenes and he would push for us to film on location in real places. It brings almost a film quality to the show.

Al Norton: Most of what you do is pretending but if you are doing it in real places it must make it easier to do so.

Kimberly Quinn: It does. I traveled a lot back and forth from home. It would have been really great if I lived there. Donal and Mikey lived there together; they were Ocean Beach. We girls went back and forth, balancing work with our families. When you're pulling into San Diego and you see the clear skies and the beautiful weather, it definitely has an effect on the work.

I died at "Mikey." This cast is adorable! She also talks about how she got the role, and how she would pitch the show to new viewers.

Interesting blog post from TheSmogger.com talking about how Terriers is the best new show of the year, but you wouldn't know it by its marketing campaign.  Worth a read - and get out there and spread the Terriers love!  Tell all your friends!

The Best, Worst Advertised Show on TV - TheSmogger.com

One of my favorite bits:

Terriers is very funny, without ever drawing any attention to its jokes. It’s exciting, but never sleek. There are moments of violence, but they arrive unexpectedly, never at the beats in the story we’ve been conditioned for, and they’re sloppy and awkward and look patently un-choreographed, fights between people who don’t know how to fight. There are self-contained weekly cases and an ongoing narrative.
