The Following (Series) is cancelled

Last night I read on Entertainment Weekly that my most favourite series, The Following is cancelled.

I couldn’t believe my eyes, so I decided to sleep on it… Maybe it was a really bad joke or a dream. The problem is, that it is not a joke as now there are several sources reporting this.

What really bothers me is how on the verified Facebook page, no one has declared this and we have no explanation. They keep promoting the next episode as if there’s no cancellation. What is this madness?

I know that what Fox cares about is their income, and the amount of viewers they get out of every episode. But don’t we deserve to know what has happened? And why kill Joe? Wasn’t it a little bit obvious that this character was close to our hearts and he brought a lot of viewers to the series? You don’t have to work in marketing to know this… No other character on the series has a twisted mind (and an accent) like he does. Nothing compares to him!

So here I am, admitting defeat. Yet another series which will stop abruptly, even when it had so much promise, and darkness to last for a couple more years! The question now is… shall I just boycott Fox? Shall I hope the series get picked up by another TV channel? Or shall I just hope that Ryan Hardy and Joe Carroll get another series?

Spring Hunting Season Day 2

I will go straight to the point; I have voted against sprint hunting for two reasons:

1. It’s the breeding season, it’s the worst time to hunt birds!
2. People never change

Looks like I was right on point 2. So, what happened on the second day of spring hunting?
(the spring hunting season in Malta opened yesterday)

The police are now in possession of an illegal Cuckoo bird which was killed today during hunting. The hunter himself was trying to hide the bird when the police came by but thanks to people close by who observed the incident, they managed to find it. All this has happened in the area of Manikata, close to Mellieha.

A few days ago, the Prime Minister of Malta – Joseph Muscat said that he will not tolerate anyone who does not follow the new hunting laws and he would close the hunting season as soon as someone disobeys.
I refer to:

At this point, I hope that the hunter will be prosecuted as per new spring hunting laws:

And I also hope that this hunting season will be gone once and for all. Otherwise, I guess the mockery we have been getting from various countries in the EU, is very well deserved. Being democratic in this case was not a good solution.

P.S. Malta is the only country in the EU who allows recreational spring hunting (Source: BBC)
