Hello friends and lovers. Today I am here to talk to you about yet another show canceled on me. If the pic was familiar, you understood why I chose my first sentence.
This isn’t breaking news – like discovering the shows Bored to Death and Terriers canceled within hours of the decision. I had my suspicions on this one, but it took stumbling upon an article by Brad Pike to discover the disheartening realization. His article Food Party: Requiem for the Best TV Show Ever Made was not only rocking proper capitalization, but pretty much nailed how I felt about this television program (formerly on IFC).

You know what? While I write this, I’m thinking I should talk all about this show at a different time. Maybe a bloggy-series of stuff I like that didn’t get much of a tv life. I’ll think about it…and weigh the options versus the procrastination factor of my novel. That thing kind of does have a deadline.
