Thanks.
I'm not shocked. It was as I expected, but it's still a shame. Brotherhood had deserved to get some nominations.

Well, with practically zero publicity from S***time, how would nominators know to vote for it?

I sure hope that those of you who continued to get that channel in hopes of Brotherhood being renewed, would now jettison the channel from their cable packages.

This sucks! All the trash on TV, and a decent show gets no appreciation. I'm completely disgusted! nuke.gif

I don't know who/how folks vote, but BH was available online to the voters...DVD(s) used 2B available each year, but the shows are now all available online for voters to watch...they were probably saying, "BH,
never heard of it"..... :shock:

I would have voted for Brotherhood! This show is much better than any trash on tv and the cast's performance is excellent. I mean, come on, it sure deserves a recognition.

I cancelled Showtime quite a while back and don't miss it at all.
We all knew that they wouldn't push BH for any Emmys. We know it was a good show and that's what counts.

P.S....Jason deserved a nomination more than anyone named for best actor in a drama series...He was robbed.
