    I want to see it too if it happens. But the writer has a point. A lot of the more beloved shows, like AD, Star Trek and Firefly were perhaps cancelled too soon. But the cancellation and the way the network(s) messed around with the show(s) gives the fans some kind of bond. It's them against those bastards at the network who cancelled their favorite show.

    However in some cases it's better to get cancelled too soon rather than too late. For several reasons, some shows that start off well and are great for a few years tend to drop on quality. Writers/actors/producers leave for greener pastures or ask for more money that the network(s) won't give them. They become attached to catch phrases or storylines that were great 4-5 years ago but now are hackneyed. I think The Office is a prime example of that. While still funny at times it lacks the excellence of the first few seasons. Yet NBC wouldn't dare cancel it since it still gets good ratings and it sells a lot of merchandise.

    Sometimes it's enough to say a show was great while it lasted and never "jumped the shark" (loved Henry Winkler literally jumping a shark in AD) because you don't want it to come back at a lower quality than it was when it originally aired.

    Okay, I'm in. I didn't watch the show when it was on--I tried a couple of times but couldn't figure out who these people were or why they were acting like that. Got a Kindle Fire for Christmas and decided to take advantage of the Prime streaming videos and watch the first few episodes. I finished off the series last night. I found myself laughing out loud more than I have in recent memory, sometimes not able to catch my breath.

    How in the world could Fox let something like this die. Can't wait for the new episodes, even if they don't completely measure up. A seven-year gap can be hard to overcome, but this should still be funnier than just about anything else on (about the only shows I'm finding funny these days are Community and Parks & Rec.)

    btw, I guessed wrong. I had figured that Michael was adopted.

    Because of people like you and me who unfortunately waited until the show was over before watching it on DVD/Netflix.

    We only have ourselves to blame, my friend.

    Awesome.

    Can't wait!

    Barry Zuckerkorn: So basically you're about 2,000 shares short of being the majority stock holders. Now unfortunately it's a private stock so you can not just buy up the shares unless someone is willing to sell
    Michael: Are you sure?
    Barry Zuckerkorn: That's what it said on 'Ask Jeeves'



    Mae 'Maebe' Funke: Do you guys know where I could get one of those gold T-shaped pendants?
    Michael: That's a cross.
    Mae 'Maebe' Funke: Across from where?

    "And why do false truths persist, getting passed down the decades as if they were fact? It comes back to the same point: People believe things that are wrong because, individually, people rarely investigate their own beliefs, particularly when what they believe makes sense intuitively. Even more so when those around them agree with them." -K.F.
