ABC Finds A Way To Alienate the Geeks
So let me get this straight, NBC has proven that the geek demographic actually can bring in ratings and money between Heroes, The Office and the upcoming Bionic Woman, right? So what does ABC do? They take a giant dump on what could have been the next Outer Limits or Twilight Zone and decide to essentially make what Fox pulled on Firefly look like the long run Cheers had.
I already don't watch much TV as it is since I've got a pretty decent DVD collection and Netflix. This makes me want to boycott ABC outright. Can't you at least let the viewing audience take a look at this show before deeming it garbage? I swear, there's no way a great show like Spaced would make it because it isn't Desperate Housewives or Survivor.
For a great opinion on this fiasco, check out Wil Wheaton's thoughts on this. Actually, just read anything the man writes. The man is so good at what he does that I actually sing that I want to be like Wil instead of Mike.
