Default The alternate ending MAY air this summer or fall

From TV Guide's Ask Ausiello:


Question: Have you heard if NBC will show the end of American Dreams that Jonathan Prince mentioned had been filmed in case the series was canceled (Ask Ausiello 3/23)? Jonathan

Ausiello: Prince tells me that the 10-minute epilogue was "shot and is ready to be aired if NBC will let us do a special this summer or fall." Well, you don't have to tell Gail O'Grady twice. "Let's hope it happens," she told me last week at ABC's upfront, where she was promoting her new comedy Hot Properties. "If Jonathan Prince is the show-runner that I've known him to be, he will not let go of this until there is closure." (No pressure though, Jon.)

I read that the other day. I cannot decide if I would prefer having it air sometime in the next year or having it released as part of the Season Three DVD set. I doubt NBC would ever schedule a rebroadcast of the final episode, with the alternate epilogue, in a good timeslot. It would be placed in an awful timeslot and would probably be a bit sad.

Regardless, I want to see it. Badly.

as cool as this sounds it doesn't seem very likely that NBC will air it, then again this summer should suck for them so who knows. I was wondering how they would promote it (if they did at all). "see the alternate ending of the show we canceled"

"This Sunday, join the Pryors for One. Last. Dream. American Dreams. Sunday at 8:00PM."

It would get me to watch, I think.

I would love it too. But I highly doubt NBC will do it. They could care less about what happens to Meg and the rest of the Pryors. And, they don't give a hoot about the fans.

Ten lousy minutes to sum up a show that has more character then just about any show I have seen for years and years and years?

I cannot help but feel that it would be totally disappointing.

....and Jack Pryor Senior went on to become the Chief Executive Officer of the stores that we all came to know and love as White Front. The End.

That's it?

Boo.

Default REALLY COOL IDEA

You know how sometimes, at the end of movies based on actual events, they tell you what happened to the characters, like in "Friday Night Lights" or "Coach Carter", they tell what colleges the players went to and what they're doing now. What would be really cool, is if at the end of the episode, they put some title cards on, that said what happened to the characters. Something like, "Patty Pyror, sucessful lawyer, mother of two", "Angela Walker, nurse, unmaried". Just so we can find out what happened.

i still think that nbc made a huge mistake...the more i think about this the more angry i get...they are just idiots...seriously they are going to have a terrible year ahead of them because there are no really good shows that anyone has to look foward to. they are trying to compete with cbs and abc,instead they should just keep the shows that the fans are loyal to instead of cancelling them, losing fans and viewers and adding terrible shows. i bet their ratings this year will be the worst that they have ever experienced.

Music Alternate Ending / need those DVD's

Yes, I'd very much like to see that alternate ending too, though I certainly hope it's more upbeat than the dismal ending we were left with (Meg blowing off her family and best friends - what a disappointment after three great seasons)! One of the amazing things about AD is how the characters did, and still do, really matter to us. I've never felt this bad about a show being cancelled.

Somebody suggested a "where are they now?" twist at the end. Sounds like a good idea. If they don't put it on TV this year, then at least add it to the Season 3 DVD. And I REALLY hope those DVD's are produced!!!

I'm confused they are going to show us a 10 minute wind up to the show? If they can't give us at least one more hour I don't want to bother. Excuse me if I am confused on the 10 minute thing. I just brieflly went through this thread.

You read right: Ten Minutes.



I refuse to watch any new shows this year. Why get involved. They just yank em. It is not worth it.

Trish's new mantra:

Do not get emotionally involved. Do not get emotionally involved. Do not get emotionally involved. Do not get emotionally involved. Do not get emotionally involved. Do not get emotionally involved.



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.

Trish
