I'm in agreement with almost everything you said. Felicity-- loved it first season, hated it after that. FOX programming is hit or miss. I'm still addicted to NBC"s "Must See TV."

I just realized how funny it was that I suggested that they "bring back reruns" for WHAT'S HAPPENING?!! A good choice of words, I might say.

They canceled Futurama? What the hell?! This is more proof there is no god.
