    Blade TV series cancelled

    Phrost don't move this to sociocide till you read and you'll see why it's MA related.

    As reported here http://www.aintitcool.com/node/30228
    Blade looks to be done. One of the reasons I feel it failed (besides sucking) is that Spike TV does not in anyway understand the TUF and MMA demographic. They assumed that people who liked watching people fight for real would like to watch a juvenile vampire fantasy featuring people pretending to fight.

    All of other Spikes new programming like the Dudesons and the one with the fat hillbillies seems to me that they equate MMA with the jackass crowd (not that there's anything wrong with jackass)

    I feel as a successful 34 year old father of three that I am more the demographic for TUF than the 17 year old emo goths who would like Blade. It amazes me when intelligent programmers could so misunderstand their demographic like that.

    Kudos to you. As a fan of martial arts, the UFC and TUF and K1 and Pride and all that, I am constantly astounded at what marketers apparently think I am also interested in as a result. The blade series is just one of many cases that make me feel like I'm being lumped with people who believe in pro wrestling.

    All I remember from the Blade commercials was lots of PG-rated sex scenes.

    Fighting TV shows are so 1990's. After you watch some MMA, even if you don't do it yourself, choreographed TV fight scenes are so blatantly fake that they can't be enjoyed. Movie fight scenes are becoming really over-the-top, so they don't try to fool anybody, but make it look cool. All that's left for TV are guns and explosions.

    w00rd!!!

    Once I started watching MMA, everything else looked fucking stupid. Some things have their place in entertainment (Ong Bak, or "Hero"), but **** like "Blade, The Series" it's just fucking stupid.

    I agree 100% with Goju's assessment. Unfortunately, show programmers are not necessarily the brightest bulb in the fucking xmas tree. They have fucked up before.

    Fact of the matter is that MMA is an elitist sport. You need a certain degree of intelligence to appreciate it and understand it. For those who don't have that degree of intelligence, MMA seems like a freak show that crosses over hilly billies, goths and pseudo-metro-fucks who dream of (or pretend) being part of a "fight club".

    I fucking hate Spike. I really do. It's a stupid cable channel for beer bellies, meatheads, horny pencilneck nerds and delusional juveniles. Spike catters to the least intelligent (or testosterone/personality defficient) elements malehood has to offer. The worst crap of them all.

    The only thing worth watching from it is CSI, Star Trek, and TUF. And even then, it fucking gets tired to hear "let the bodies hit the floor" over and over again with the TUF.

    What the ****? Can't they get more simplistic and narrow-minded???? Spike doesn't show me what real man is. It shows me the most pathetic things the most pathetic of men like, and that's about it.

    Being sport-minded does imply being fucking stupid and pathetic.

    TUF would have been better off with OLN, CSS, ESPN or FSN. Terrible choice for televised MMA IMO.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    You don't get FSN?????? Man, that's too bad. I usually get to see reruns of PRIDE, K-1, boxing and even Sanda on OLN and CSS from time to time :)
