Why am I still watching My Own Worst Enemy?

Christian SlaterThis has nothing to do with the quality of the show. I like it. But I'm wondering why I keep watching it week after week when NBC has already canceled it.

It's not the first time that I've watched a TV show that has been canceled. And I think that fans should keep watching the remaining episodes of a TV show that has been canceled, out of loyalty if nothing else. But it takes real loyalty to watch a canceled show that has a continuing mystery at its core, which My Own Worst Enemy has.

I don't think that the show got enough heads up to change the last episode so it's a conclusion to the series (or even a sort-of conclusion), so the episodes I'm watching right now are all leading up to something big happening but it's not going to happen. So each week we're getting clues to what happened to Edward's parents, the scheming of the James Cromwell character, what Henry's wife's background is, and more, and it's just not going to add up to anything when the show is gone for good, and who knows when that's going to be. Hell, I'm still surprised at the end of each episode when the NBC announcer says "next week on My Own Worst Enemy..."

Anyone else still watching this show?
