UPDATE! Charlaine Harris--renewal for "MIdnight Texas" TV show

Charlaine Harris just posted on Facebook that the renewal of the television version of Midnight, Texas, is hanging in the balance. She asks supporters to make their opinions known at @MidnightTexas on Facebook.

Although I wasn't overjoyed with all aspects of the show, by the end I had made peace with most of my complaints, particularly about the lousy casting of a few of the characters (particularly, Joe the fallen angel). 

Once a book falls into the hands of TV executives, it is always going to become a very different product than the one we read on the printed page. That happened with True Blood, just as it happened with Midnight. Thankfully, the producers of True Blood did a much better job and stayed relatively true to Harris's character development and story lines.

I'm just grateful that the Midnight series was better cast and plotted than the dreadful Aurora Teagarden series on the Hallmark channel, which is filled with sappy, air-headed characters and drips with saccharine-sweet drivel that is far removed from Harris's wry, dry wit.
