See, Jewel Staite? You shoulda stayed looking like Kaylee. Getting skinny has gotten you nowhere.

(Aw. I kid. She seems like a nice person and I hope she manages to get on a successful show some time. But I still thought she was cuter on Firefly.)

Maybe we are just tried of hearing about rich white people problems?

She gained weight for the role of Kaylee. Whedon wanted that character to look like she enjoyed a cheeseburger once in a while.

I was probably the only person in America who liked that show....

First a bit part on Dead Like Me, then Firefly, now this thing. Maybe Jewel Staite is just TV poison?

/definitely hotter at Kaylee-weight
//this show looks like crap, though, seriously

Nah, she was ok in Stargate Atlantis.

Nah, she hasn't caught up with River yet.

Well, lowest for a drama. That biatch from What Not to Wear (my wife used to watch) had a late night Chelsea Handler-like talk show that only lasted a few episodes. An article I read around that time mentioned that it bottomed out at somewhere around 5000 viewers.
 
2012-04-25 10:17:26 PM
So it's worse than The Paul Reiser Show? That is no small feat.
 
2012-04-25 10:22:53 PM
I DVR'd it and watched the parts that had Paul F. Thompkins in them.
 
2012-04-25 10:24:50 PM
Huh...I figured a show no one wants to watch would be right up the average Farker's alley. They don't like anything a lot of people like.
 
2012-04-25 11:06:04 PM
FTFA: Either that, or await the influx of Firefly white knights who can't bear to see Jewel Staite wasted on another failed drama.

Goddamit so much.
 
2012-04-25 11:09:21 PM
I've never even heard of this show.
 
2012-04-25 11:14:16 PM
I watched the show. It was far superior than Firefly

I thought the story was that she was actually skinnier than Bacarin during the pre-production and they didn't want Staite looking better than the 'escort' so they asked her to gain some weight. If you watch the movie you can tell she lost the extra weight from when the show ended.

SearchN: The what?


The only reason I know about it is TV Guide blasted it twice in this week's issue.

Yes, I read TV Guide. Don't judge.

I'm sure it's not cancelled in the north but here...yeah.

Why? So every TV show can get cancelled and every movie can bomb?


The guy is a hack and Buffy was a fluke.

And the first scene with her hair back and dirty face IS THE MOST ADORABLE THING IN THE HISTORY OF EVER.

How are ratings measured nowadays? Same as always or with new devices? My point is, I would think eventually the number of people estimated to be watching becomes too small to calculate.
Can you estimate "14"? "387"? "43,028"?

This is the CW we're talking about. When have they ever cancelled anything?

stoli n coke: Why? So every TV show can get cancelled and every movie can bomb?


Yeah, there's this piece of shiat called "The Avengers" that he wrote and directed coming out this week. It's going to go down faster than Lindsey Lohan after an 8 ball.

If Thor, Captain America, The Hulk, and the second Iron Man are any indication, don't expect too much.

If it got 650k views on Youtube, it would be revolutionary.

this. honestly the best thing he did was cast Sarah Michelle Geller and Alyson Hannigan in the same show. It is the only reason the show made it past season 1 - hot women. Yes, the stories got ok after season 1 but my GOD season 1 of Buffy is ST:TNG season 1 bad.

Rolls eyes

Yes, 4 television shows, wrote the X-men for a while, directed The Avengers, made a bunch of movies, wrote farking Toy Story. Total hack. Failure. Don't know how he gets out of bed in the morning.

it's ok, dude. you don't need to white knight for Joss. We all know he has done some good things. He has also done some crap.

I kind of enjoyed the scenes of Paul F. Tompkins and Mary-Lynn Rajskub portraying horrible versions of themselves.

It's also worth nothing that Rajskub is a far better actor now than she was on Mr. Show, while Tompkins has committed so deeply to his "grinning dandy Sirius Black" persona that he's become a worse actor for it.

They were mean, telling that jewish stereotype character he wasn't funny.

Terrible show though. Worse than "Lingerie".
