This was a fine show, one of the most humane and human on TV. Instead of giving it a decent run and letting it build an audience, what do they do?
They run it in two short seasons, at an odd time of the years, then trash it.
Sometimes people need time to find a show. They also need time to develop a kinship with the characters. Some of the most successful shows in television history took time to find their audience and their niche.
This show never got a chance.
Big studios and tv stations are wondering why they are struggling. Its not all because of the internet. Its because there are no longer smart people running the show. There's no one left in Hollywood who has any idea at all where the everyday people are at anymore. They don't have a clue.
This show, had it been allowed to run, would have become an international favorite for years to come.
Instead, we're probably just going to be handed more reality trash or boring propaganda shows that are neither funny nor smart.
And Hollywood wonders why they can't find the new Archie Bunker, or Fonzi, or Mork, or Dick Van Dyke, or Mary Tyler Moore. Well, its because they've all been tossed in the trash before they get a chance to prove their worth.
