    Ok, I am pissed. Yeah it only took me until now cos I just downloaded the first two eps that I had missed, since I loved the second two. And sure enough, the first two were awesome. Such a clever show, Bradley Cooper is great, and the interaction between the characters is so hilarious. I'm sure I'm restating the already stated, but Fox must be run by a bunch of idiots for not even letting this one go ONE full season. And I'm a huge Prison Break fan, but could someone please explain to me what could possibly be a good reason for showing a repeat of last week's episode in the 8pm hour instead of AD and KC, when there have been perfectly good episodes available to air?

    Are they cancelling it because of the ratings?? OF COURSE the ratings aren't that good. They showed what, THREE EPISODES and then took it off to show RERUNS of another show????

    Whew. I had to let that out somewhere and nobody I know would care.

    I have more to say after reading the entire topic. Someone brought up the point that Fox doesn't even have room left for Prison Break in it's schedule. Yeah, because they decide to take up so much time with this stupid American Idol crap. Do we really need this show to be on twice a week?? Give me a break. geez.

    Way to go Fox!!

    They air three episodes, get everyone loving the show, then they take it off the air for weeks.

    They give us one episode that is hilarious and then announce they are not airing any more.
    All this without any promotion.

    Their excuse is is that the numbers were poor.

    DUH!!

    This show was too smart for the major FOX demographic which consists primarily of mindless tools that stare slack-jawed with drool spilling out of their mouths at putrid shows like American Idol and Nanny 911.

    Hopefully, however unlikely, they'll come around and release everything they shot of this show onto DVD and it sells through the roof ultimately forcing the fools at FOX to shoot another season. Judging by how popular the torrents are to these shows and how many people are downloading the few that are out, with a little promotion the DVD Box would be huge...

    I mean, I signed up for this forum SPECIFICALLY so that I could come on and vent about the unfair treatment that this show has gotten. You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who watches at least one episode to not fall in love with the brilliant, quick-witted comedy that this show provided. What a travesty.

    I chased this show all over and waited for the new episodes - you are exactly right - they blame low ratings and NEVER gave it a chance

    Remember Seinfeld??
    It started the same way and they were not going to extend it.

    We all know it became one of the most successful series.

    Of course it wasn't on FOX!!!
