We all knew it was coming, but alas, it happened too soon.

Please take the time sign that petition even though it probably won't help.

EDIT: Mods, move the thread to general Chat. I didn't realize I was in Other Bands when I made this.

yeah, i've seen that coming for a while. i'm surprised it made it think long.

i've got a good feeling that someone else will pick it up. maybe hbo. arrested development is as good as curb your enthusiasm. if they are picked up by hbo i really hope they continue with the creative uses of bleeps though rather than just either cut out bleep gags or let profanity fly.

and check it out, simpsons is on for another season!

I thought this was a post about the band Arrested Development. I used to love those guys.

I used watch it much more than I do now because they moved it from Sunday to either Monday or Tuesday (I don't remember, both days have busy schedules for me/my family). They shouldn't have changed the scheduling, it was in a perfect time slot for plenty of viewers.

I don't watch a lot of TV, but I know that show will be dearly missed.

When a movie like Alien vs. Predator is handed to Anderson you already know Fox is fucked beyond belief, cancelling Arrested Development is just icing on the cake. Seriously, Fox has historically been run by crackhead schedule managers who can't ever see a good show till it comes back to bite them on the arse. Look at Firefly.


Edit; So Family Guy, Stacked, The Simpsons, American Dad, The War at Home, Nanny 911 ect. get to continue their waste of network slots and Arrested Development gets cancelled? Heres hoping the fans of Arrested Development are as passionate as those who brought Family Guy back.

Fox also cancelled Futurama. Seriously, what's their deal?

The Simpsons is good stuff but it's also the kind of stuff that's easy to get into, easy to enjoy and it really grows on you. It's also something both me and my little brother, who's 8 years old, enjoy and even though we usually laugh at the different things, we can still watch it together. It appeals to both kids AND adults. Perfect, eh.

Same with Family Guy, I guess, though it also has that amazing college-attending audience who know every episode by heart.

I understand why these shows are on.

What Fox's problem is that it doesn't give new shows a chance anymore. Often shows don't find their audiences immediately. Take Kitchen Confidential, a perfectly funny (though different type of funny than AD) show that was on either after or before AD. Three episodes aired. And they cancel it. Fucking assfaces.

Or with AD, where the audience found it, then probably lost it (time slot changes etc), it won Emmies, but fuck it, let's just cancel it. :/

Hopefully KC will be on FX and AD will also get transferred there or HBO.

Areested Development was one of my favorite shows. It's use of both slapstick and subtle humor was pure genius. I guess today's society will only find a joke funny if it's a fart joke or if there is a laugh track to tell them that it's funny. People are morons.

Back in Black

HAHAHA. That show sucks anyways.

Jebus

Everytime I see Back in Black in the "last post" section of a thread , I think, "Yay, Paint it Black posted something" but I soon end up in disapointment after discovering that their similar names decieved my mind.

As for what Vera said, I agree 100%, especially with the time slot changes. The reason why I missed the last few episodes was because I thought Fox was still showing baseball so I didn't watch tv that week. I never knew when it was coming back.

fox seems not to understand that if they put a show on, keep it in the same time slot, don't randomly not air it some weeks, and keep it at a full order--it will get viewers if it's good. they don't even have to heavily promote it or something, just don't change it's time slot, don't randomly go "yeah, we're not going to air AD for a couple months, so you guys have eight less episodes than we originally ordered". they fucked firefly over even worse, at least they aired AD in order.

Amigo! is awesome! I sometimes find it interesting, i sometimes die of boredom, but it's pretty good.

NNNOOOOOOOO!!!! God damnit, that was quickly becoming my favorite show (even above Conan). I mean, why is it when FOX gets a good show going, they always just say "Fuck it." and air The Simpsons 8 times a day? Well, atleast it's good that they're not FULLY canceling it, but it still sucks ass.

Jebus
11-18-2005, 04:35 PM
hmm...I might go as far as actually buying season 2 in order to support the show. Whether the dvd sales help or not, it'll still probably be worth it. If it does get cancel, AD might pull a family guyand return because of the dvd sales.

just curious, what sort of thing do you find funny?

and i recently heard that Showtime was looking at picking it up.

Jebus
11-18-2005, 04:53 PM
Hopefully, it will be Showtime seeing how I don't get HBO. I'll have to rely on torrents if it goes to HBO.

Four seasons? Hey, it's ok for us Brits - we've got another two seasons to look forward to.

Finland is showing the 2nd season. But I'm not a Britfag who can't download, so...

Touché, touché.

Andy

HOWEVER, it does mean that when the next series' get played on tv I wont
be watching stuff I've seen before. So in a kind of twisted logic way....I win.

That and I honestly can't get Bit Torrent to work. I deserve all the Britfag comments I get :(

EDIT: Shit, apologies for the double posting. Gah.

and hopefully they don't try to go ahead with another season without mitch.

So today I was watching a Korean drama show and this girl in it goes "Annyong." and this other girl replies, "Annyong."

IT WAS AWESOME.
