Now we’ll never know what was going on.
We’ll never learn what “Mother of God, Cass-Kai” means.
We’ll never know if John and Shaunie were surfing in from heaven or a UFO.
We’ll never– Oh who gives a s***? We weren’t supposed to know. And you weren’t watching, anyway.
John from Cincinnati, David Milch’s saga of science, spirituality and surfing, his middle finger to popular opinion and a series that got more watchable as it got more incomprehensible, has been canceled by HBO after ten episodes and hours after its first season finale (with a rousing opening sequence set to Bob Dylan’s “Series of Dreams” that seemed to be setting the course for a new direction).Great opening credits, though. And Ed O’Neill deserves an Emmy.
(And John had its champions, as you can see here. Did you watch John? Will you miss it?)
