Over the years FOX has cancelled more great shows than any other network. Firefly ROCKS! It is sad to hear Joss tell about how FOX didn't understand the show and as a result never got behind it 100%. I guess they can only relate to such crap as Family Guy :disappointed:
FOX, here's to you! :finger:

Well then I guess I can talk about my EVIL idea to have for the opening day was to arrange to get the address for Fox TV studios and send them a bushel of Green Apples. Witha Card of Course asking them "What you think about them Apples."
It would be set to arrive on opening day so that even if they wished to raise a stink the movie would be in theaters and the stink might drive attendence up. Which si a good thing.

Family Guy is a joke! :vomit:
The guy who writes this show totally ripped off the character names from his home town. After the first season the whole town threatened to sue FOX for allowing their names to be used in a not so flattering way! Guess what? No 2nd season!
Why do so many TV comedies have the husband as some FAT LOSER and the wife is a HOTIE? :stupid:
How often do you see this in real life? NEVER

I like The Inside, but still have mixed feelings on it. Lot of potential, good cast, etc, but it hasn't quite come together for me yet.

Let's not forget TRU Calling (I love :kiss: Eliza!)
FOX has killed :knife: more good shows than any three other networks combined! I wish they would get a clue!

Newbie here so please be gentle.
Just wanted to respond to "What is wrong with Fox".
The problem is with broadcast tv. In any company, their product is what they produces and their customers are the ones who pay for it. So how does that work for tv? Who are Fox's customers and what is their product? The correct answer is not viewers and shows, the bills are paid by the SPONSERS. They are Fox's customers. What Fox supplies to them (their product) are us - the viewers. Fox and all the broadcast networks are just trying to supply the most product at the least cost.
Now before I get jumped for seeming to take Fox's side, let me say that I'm two years older than 'Forbidden Planet' and Firefly is the best I've seen on TV! Who know, maybe one of the subscription channels (HBO, Showtime, etc - where we are the customers) will see the dvd sales and the tremendous box office of the movie and get interested...

How could we forget WONDERFALLS???
Fox has killed more things that I love than, well anything. Fox murders the shows I love. I'm still shocked Arrested Development hasn't been moved to the Friday night death slot.
Dark Angel, Wonderfalls, Firefly, Tru Calling, all these deaths turned me off from Fox. I am awaiting The Inside's innevitable death (and although the show is okay, they really need to come up with more plots than Rebecca gets abducted, Rebecca knows everything about evil, Ryan wants to save her from Webb, and Adam Baldwin and Katie Finneran are around only to look good in photos and to say the occasional funny or serious thing). Although I am thinking that much like the WB regrets having killed Angel, I am pretty sure that Fox has started to learn its lesson after the huge upsets they caused when cancelling Firefly, Wonderfalls and most recently Tru Calling. You can't constantly trash your viewing audience by sucking them in and throwing them out and expect them to keep coming back for more.
Some of the best 'classic' TV wouldn't last 5 minutes on TV with the way ratings are done now (which is wholly innacurate and from which they must find a new way to do it. With all the digital cable out there now don't tell me they can't track what people are watching. The Neilson standard is badly flawed and under represents the viewing audience of today), X-Files, Buffy, Angel, Dark Angel, Roswell none of these shows would have gotten through their first season today, and that's just sad. Thank god for Lost cos it brought networks to realize you can make is supernatural and people will still flock to it like no ones business. Thanks ABC for taking a chance!
