    I was extremely disappointed the Glades had been cancelled. Especially at the point it was. I have know doubts that everyone that was watching this summer series was looking forward to knowing what happened to Jim!
    Was there going to be a wedding?
    I had watched every episode during the four seasons.
    This was a great summer series.
    Renew please………..

    I agree with all the comments with regard to finishing the story and not just chopping it off where you did. I have watched every episode in every season and have enjoyed it a great deal. Why do this to the fans and the put on another crummy reality show. You don’t leave much to watch any more.

    I agree, it’s not right to leave Jim dying in the kitchen. If the network doesn’t renew than at least have a 2 hour special tying up everything so no one is left hanging!

    Finally a well written show…great cast…and what do you do??? Why cancel it of course…and add what? Another reality show…it’s an absolute shame that a weekly show…ratings on the RISE…should leave us all in the lurch! I wish someone would pick up this show and breath air into it~give it a chance. The story line is there…several as a matter of fact, and it deserves to continue…not shot in the back and left to die! That’s the cowardly way out~ this show has legs, PLEASE someone out there with a backbone and some PULL must be listening! Do the right thing and get Jim to the Hospital … then get to solving who the shooter was~what about that sketchy WITSAC dude~or the Ex husb now that Kiele’s character has huge inheritance coming~or, wait … I’m not giving away all the story lines in the wings!!! This such a waste of a quality, light-hearted show along the lines of Rizzoli & Isles!?!?! Please either renew this, or let someone else pick it up and run with it!

      Hi…don’t know if you read what I had to say regarding the Glades and the horrible way it ended! I’d love to get some sort of petition going to do something about it> For crying out loud I already mentioned a couple of possible leads for Jim’s shooter! If I can come up with something surely THEY can! I’just want someone to breath some life into this show and get it rolling again.
      Please write back if you have any ideas…I know tons of people who feel the same way.
      I hope to hear from you in the near future…you probably have better ideas than I do…but for crying out loud it’s a shame that with all the reality garbage [sorry] out there this show is a gem and should be preserved!
      I really wish there was someone we could go to…good shows like this [not jam packed with swearing] really the light hearted sort of thing we need more of to end our day with … before we have to watch the news!
      All the best~hoping to hear from you guys~will help with whatever it takes to at least TRY not to lose this gem amidst all the trash it’s served up with… pat

    its really a shame that The Glades was cancelled. If they want to cancel the show that’s ok, but at least give the tv audience who’ve been following the show for 4 seasons a worthy ending. How can you leave us hanging with no closure. Sad, now we have to deal with another reality show. Really. I hope another network picks up the show.

    The Glades is a really good show and I believe they have another three seasons are more. I couldn’t believe they shot him and I hope he doesn’t die!!
