At the recent Television Critics Association Press Tour, SWINGTOWN executive producer Alan Poul promised that, “The season ends with a cliffhanger, but it’s also a completely satisfying ending. So, if we go forward, there are many new things that are set up to explore. And if we don’t go forward, there’s no feeling that we’ve been left with something incomplete.”
Did SWINGTOWN executive producer Alan Poul actually watch his show’s season finale on Friday night?
Putting aside how incredibly satisfying it was for this TV Addict to witness Tom and Trina Decker blossom into the summer’s most unexpected romantic couple, Janet evolve past her initial [and so overdone] tired cliched TV stereotype of Martha Stewart re-incarnate and B.J, and Samantha’s adorable first love, Mr. Poul is going to have to explain to millions of fans across the country what exactly was ‘completely satisfying’ about ending off the season and quite possibly the series with Susan, Bruce, Roger and Janet’s marriages on the brink of destruction?
Because unlike DuckyDoesTV.com, my slight television addiction has put a serious damper on my imagination and I’m definitely not content to have, “the story-lines and these characters grow, change and live on in my mind where they are safe from creative slumps and network gimmickry.”
