Did AMC Let The Zombies Eat Rubicon’s Brain?
Today, AMC announced they are not going to bring “Rubicon” back for a second season. Let me put this bluntly: THIS IS COMPLETE UTTER TOTAL NONSENSE ON THE HIGHEST LEVEL THAT IT MAKES ME HAVE CRAZY HEAD.
As you may have guessed, I was a huge fan of this show. I love conspiracy theory and this show was filthy with it. It had some very cool and quirky characters, most notably the main character played by James Badge Dale, Will Travers. Not only were the characters very cool, but this show was able to give you answers to all kinds of mysteries but without showing you every card in its hand. It fed you just enough information to not frustrate you, but maintained enough secrecy to keep you guessing.
Most people think this show got the ax because of the overwhelming ratings response to “The Walking Dead”. There is no way a show like “Rubicon” was ever in a million years going to score with young people the way a show about zombies overrunning America would. It’s just not going to happen. “Rubicon” takes patience. It takes thought. It demands your attention.
Dammit. Guess I should say that it demanded your attention. Bye “Rubicon”, I just didn’t get to know you enough.
Cinematically Correct note: Suck it AMC.
