Thank God! ABC has put Alias out of its misery. It's been going downhill since the first year and I stopped watching past the first episode this year. Worryingly, all the things that went wrong with Alias have been happening with Lost this year, so the much-hyped island tale might soon lose its sparkle if history repeats itself, as it seems to be doing.

The Media Guardian is reporting that Granada (aka ITV aka land of rubbish TV) is to remake The Prisoner. Given the current array of talent working for British TV, and in particular Granada, why do I know already that it's going to be appalling, shallow, insipid and have nothing to say for itself other than “we really need some ratings”. I'm curious to know where they're going to shoot it, now Portmeirion has been crossed off the location list. Somewhere around Manchester perhaps, Granada?

It's not a big surprise but Night Stalker has been cancelled. It wasn't a great show and it's initial episode was so bad, it is a surprise that anyone watched at all. But it had been picking up and was almost bearable at times. I'd have watched it in preference to Invasion any day, yet Invasion has been picked up for a whole season.
This week's episode will be replaced by Primetime Live. They could have waited, couldn't they? It was a two-parter! Now how are we going to find out what happened? Buy the DVD?
