    Pure and simple, TV viewers are killing scripted series.  Don’t cry when the good dramas and comedies are axed because you had to see which of four poor karaoke singers got sent home.  When will America wake up from the A.I. stupor Fox has lulled them into?

  • Liz

    Agreed.  Reality shows are taking over and only viewers are to blame.  I think out of the reams of reality shows, there are only 2 that I find palatable.

     I love community, but I felt that last nights episode wasn’t as genius as it might have been.  Last weeks was better.

    Agreed that part 1 was better. Josh Holloway obviously took it over the top. Besides, doing a Star Wars thing for your big finale was not exactly as unique as Community should be. Doing a spaghetti western like “For A few Dollars More” was a much better premise.
