I'm sorry... I have to vent because this has gotten very old.

The 10 minutes is the alternate ending... What is the name of God do you people want? The show was cancelled because no one was watching.

A couple of my shows I was watching were cancelled... I've gotten over it. It's not like NBC cancelled it because it had fans and they just wanted to make ya'll mad. Geez...

Brent.. it is one thing to vent, it's another thing to constantly come to a show's board and criticize it. Please read rule #7 here - http://www.sitcomsonline.com/boards/...ment.php?f=380

All you do is come to this board and constantly put it down. Talk about how bad the ratings were. You probably never even watched the show a day in your life.

Yes, the show got cancelled. I think a lot of fans would like to get some closure by being able to see that final alternate montage.

Default the alternate ending may air this summer or fall

brent
they only know how many watched by the nielsen ratings right?
so how can they tell how many watched , if they dont have nielsen
ratings? the show was cancelled because it got bounced. one week it was on then it was off for several weeks. nbc never promoted it either.
all i have to say is dont rain on OUR DREAMS
people fight for what is good. and that was american dreams.
to bad we didnt win the battle. but we can dream still cant we?
ya never know what could come about someday
one question. if your tired of this why come here to bother us?

Re: [americandreamstv] Will we ever get to see the prologue ending that Jonathan Prince shot?

"It isn't a finale or anything, it is a 5-10 minute epilogue, and it's really not that satisfying. It doesn't add closure or anything. It's actually more sad."


This is what Leigh, of the American Dreams Fanclub, posted on one of the Yahoo groups. Doesn't sound too promising, does it??? I STILL really want to see it, though, as I know the rest of you do, too!!

Maybe I will switch over to watching "reality" shows. Who can get too upset over the cancelling of a gopher liver going down some girls throat. Who can get too hooked on seeing some guy dining on horse entrails and lizards. I don't think I will mind too much when these shows go off the air (in ten years).

That's the ticket! Totally lower my STANDARDS! Accept people treating others in a totally inhumane way for MONEY and fifteen minutes of FAME!

BINGO! Happy Trish once again.

Ten minutes.

I hope you were kidding. Just because it's there, doesn't mean you have to accept it. Don't lower your standards. Wait for something better. I don't think getting emotionaly invovled in a show is going to happen anytime soon. What is there to be involved with? The shows on the three major networks are awful. I was thinking about the shows that are still on frist run I was going to watch next year, and none of the them are on major 3 networks. The only one that comes close is "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" and that's on ABCfamily. I'm going to miss "American Dreams". I still have a friend who looks forward to it every Sunday night, then remembers its gone.

Thanks TJ. All Brent seems to do at this board is put down the show and it's viewers. I don't know why he comes here in the first place.

okay, i know im a little late and no one will probably read this, but i am extremely not happy rite now. its sunday, and i dont know what to do. my friends always said i watched the show religiously, and im pretty sure they were rite. i wouldnt be sooo extremely mad if they had cancelled AD after they cancelled the really sucky shows like fear factor or joey, but those shows remain while AD is gone! and how do they think they're gonna make it all better by showing an epilogue----- if they ever do?! i mean, how can you squeeze the lives of ppl we truly cared a/b into 10 minutes?! that show had so much depth...it wasnt just the usual "two gays and a girl", or "all i care about is sex sex sex" show!

The third season has just finished airing over here in New Zealand and like most of you's I felt like there wasn't much closure especially for a series finale. I'm sorry to hear that there hasn't been much success in NBC airing the alternative ending, it probably wasn't even a possiblity of it being aired over here either.
There hasn't been a show in a long time that I could call one of my favourites until I came across American Dreams. It a great shame its over.

Default American Dreams

I loved AD, it was the ONLY show in which I got attached to the characters, the only show which ever made me cry--esp. when JJ left for Okinawa and Helen hugged him the kitchen that morning, not knowing if she'd ever see him again.

2 questions:
(1) Did the alternate ending ever air? I just found out about the show being canceled, so maybe it aired already and I missed it?

(2) People in this thread keep talking about the Season 3 DVD. Has anyone heard if there will be any more DVDs, beyond Season 1--I know there is nothing for season 2 yet.

We can only hope that the Season 2 and 3 DVD's will eventually appear. Like all the other AD fans, I never felt so attached to any other TV show, and I've never felt this bad when a show got cancelled. I grew up in the 60's, and the director and cast of AD really nailed the history, music, and emotions of those days!

One thing I'm sure of: AD fans are the greatest!

Yes, I too miss the show,and have watched Will Estes show Reunion, which is not bad, but it is not the same as AD.
