FOX (ended 2004)
|Fox is the antichrist. Wonderfalls was really great. Don't even get me started on Firefly (Intense anger builds up just thinking about it) I can't even think of all the shows they cancelled that were amazingly good, but I do know it pisses me off. You would think that they would be smart enough to use REAL reviews and ratings from people on sites like this to determine whether they should keep a show. All Neilson Families want to watch is CSI and American Idol. ARHHRHRHGHGHWEHHEHE!!!!!! so pissed|
Who is this "Neilson Family" and how can we exterminate it?
|I'm glad to read that I'm not the only one who hates Fox. Not only are they clueless as to what constitutes a good show, but the network is responsible for the most biased, agenda-driven "news" division in the main-stream media.|
Let's give them their due... most Americans haven't a clue about real news, anyway.
fox sucks that simple ...
they didn't want a gay Sharon and also...
they don't like real good shows look there track record ....
this was discussed over 2 years ago when it was taken off the air
also... they didn't even run it right order ...
listen to dvd set commentaries ...all is there
|Speaking of The X-Files, I'm just surprised FOX let them get past episode three without saying "Oh, we're airing a good and intelligent show! What are we thinking?!?" It must be because back then, there weren't reality shows and game shows that take an hour but are short enough to be half an hour that could've taken up the timeslot. I guess they were leaving it there as a placeholder, until they realized they could begin bathing in money after a few seasons of it. That, or someone who's not satanic was running things back then.|
| FOX is evil and purely stupid. Anyone agree? |
(By the way, just a blind hope here... if FOX were to get a few thousand letters all from different people, do you think they'd maybe consider bringing the show back?)
|Never attribute to malice what can be adequately explained by stupidity. Evil has its limits. Stupidity is not thus encumbered.|
Spot on, except true evil knows no bounds. Also, people confuse indifference for malice, but it can be a blurry line there as well.
Overall, the whole cancel that show to air this show problem is at the heart of why broadcast scheduling needs to be replaced with on-demand video streaming, and no, I'm not talking about that overpriced cable service either. Seriously, if people could watch whatever show they want, whenever they want, then good shows wouldn't have to duke it out in the insanely antiquated, and clearly biased, Nelson ratings, shows that are slow to pickup an audience could get a break, and networks wouldn't have to pad their schedules with completely worthless shows just for the sake of filing time slots. (Anyone seen the wasteland that's Fox's Friday night lineup?) This won't happen anytime soon because it's nearly impossible to produce a good series outside of the network/studio system that barely get this whole "Internet" thing and are absolutely unwilling to give up on their failing business model simply because they refuse to believe that the ship is sinking.
Anyway, as for Wonderfalls, I think I'm becoming a Bryan Fuller addict. I started with Dead Like Me after my mom caught the series in syndication, which then got me curious about Pushing Daisies, and now I'm catching up on Wonderfalls on DVD. I'll probably watch whatever, though probably short lived, series he comes up with next, simply because I love his irreverent quirky, yet intelligent, sense of humor and unique colorful characters. BTW, anyone notice that his cast tend to have more ladies than men? Not that I'm complaining, but TV tends to have a male gender bias that occasionally comes close to a realistic 50-50 split. I guess it's just another aspect of his shows that just don't fit the typical cookie-cuter mold.
