You guys may have been surprised that I didn't say anything about The OC getting cancelled. It's not that I wasn't upset about it -- I was. But I think I may have developed cancellation fatigue. Every year, more good shows are cancelled before their time. Who has the energy to be outraged about all of them?

I mean, what can we do? Not even TrekUnited, probably the biggest fan campaign in recent years, was able to save its show. Cartoons are one thing, but live action shows are too expensive to go back and start producing again. The writing is on the wall: only crap will prosper.

But resignation isn't my style. In fact, against my better judgment, I'm starting to think about --

Zeke's Better Judgment: Ohhh no you don't. I'm not falling for this again.

Falling for what?

Zeke's Better Judgment: Don't pretend you don't know. Last year you did that whole act leading up to the April Fool's event. Well, you're not dragging me into it this time. If you want to mess with people, do it yourself.

Wait! Come back! I'm not --

Huh.

So, um, where was I... oh yeah. You know what's cool? Zombies.

Yes! April Fool's to you too, or somesuch.

re: TrekUnited: I hate to say 'I told you so', b- wait, that's wrong. I love to say 'I told you so', and I did.

And yes, only the crap will prosper. Welcome to the human race.

@Wowbagger: Hi! Seems like an infinitely prolonged period of time since we saw you last

Are you still talking about The OC?

Yes, and I don't care what you think of that.

Firefly came back as Serenity. Proof that it's possible.

As a small side note, EVERYBODY PLEASE CLICK THE LINK IN MY SIGGY.

Yes, Firefly is trying to come back even more.

Fair enough. I think I expressed enough indifference in person that I don't need to clutter up the thread further.
