Forever is an American fantasy crime drama television series that aired on ABC as part of the 2014–15 fall television season. Created by Matt Miller, it centers on the character of Dr. Henry Morgan, a New York City medical examiner who uses his extensive knowledge to assist the New York City Police Department (NYPD) in solving crimes and to discover a way to end his own dark secret.
The network (ABC) cancelled Forever after one season, saying that the show’s live ratings was the reason behind the decision. However, television critics believed that other factors explained the network’s decision as the show gained viewers who watched the show up to seven days later on their DVRs. Fans of the series reacted strongly, creating a social media campaign to save the series; despite these efforts, the series remains cancelled…
Some of you are, of course, quite familiar with Henry Morgan, as we watched some parts of the first episode in our Conversation & Film Meetups.
