When was this on?

I've predicted that there will be an inflection point where owning and operating an over the air station will be less profitable than selling/renting the frequency for wi-fi bandwidth. The CW and Fox affiliates are looking more and more likely w/ each passing day.

When it comes to animation Fox takes the spaghetti approach. This one stuck to the wall longer than most of their attempts. Many barely make it to the end of season one.

Seriously?! And they're keeping the boring AF "Great North": and "Family Guy" that should have been taken out back & shot decades ago?

The banned episode I saw recently was outstanding. It was banned because Louis becomes a surrogate and has to get an abortion.

Interesting, FOX.

The Great North gets higher ratings than The Simpsons or Family Guy.

The sense of humor is perfectly dry as chalk.

Decades? Family Guy is the Simpsons, without the "hey I actually laughed at that" part between season 15 and 22. Family Guy had a good first 6 seasons. Yes, the revivals were good, stop being a hipster.

Nah, Family Guy is still putting out good stuff.  Last season's black and white film noir episode was outstanding.  It's still consistently a good show.  Great North isn't horrible, but as you say it's a little boring.  I think that's supposed to be part of its 'charm', but it doesn't work much.  Duncanville was just bad.  Bad writing, very bad voiceover, mediocre art.

I prefer The Great North to Duncanville, but my 9 year old daughter really liked Duncanville.

I told her Fox is where your favorite shows get canceled.

Hopefully it'll get picked up by a streamer.

Ehh.  Like so many other shows of its ilk, it had its moments, but mostly I can take it or leave it.

They shouldn't feel ban, Otisburg didn't make the cut either.

I lole Duncanville. This last season though.....felt like it swerved off to being another dipshiat family sitcom. Which is fine, just doesn't feel like what it started as.

I love The Great North though. I also love Offerman, so maybe a little bias. Hopefully it sticks to it's dry, and grounded, humor.

Check out Central Park if you you have Apple + and love musicals. Same Bob's Burgers folks/style, but the music interludes are turned up to 11. Some surprisingly good songs.

Duncanville has some good humor. One episode Annie is up for an Oscar style governmental award show. They read off the nominees. One is "Leslie that really annoying wonan from the parks department" Annie (Amy Pohler) boos. I laughed at the Parks and Rec reference and Pohler her booing herself.

Pants full of macaroni!!: Ehh.  Like so many other shows of its ilk, it had its moments, but mostly I can take it or leave it.


This.
I really liked it but after season 2, I didn't much care of I missed an episide.
I won't say Great North sucks, it's busy not for me. I've tried several times to get into but just can't.
But anything, ANYTHING beats that talking pet cartoon they tried.
 
2022-07-02 3:24:48 PM  
I didn't watch beyond the pilot. The main character was unlikable and the "cool girl" having a thing for him was just the product of a writer's fantasy.

/okay, unless it's non-fiction everything is the product of a writer's fantasy

I never gave The Great North a shot, maybe I should. I gave up on The Simpson's after the Denmark episode, which was just a big ad for socialism. Family Guy is still decent (and better than The Orville, which has been truly bad this season).

/yeah, I know The Orville isn't on Fox anymore.

Holidaysburg is still good, right?

I'm not often one of those who/what is this people, but I'm stymied here.  Not watching broadcast TV much anymore did that, I guess.

Dumped into the summer, often running two a night to burn off the short season well before the fall season started. It's no wonder it had low ratings.

It was a fine show, I liked it well enough. Seemed it was hitting a slight meta/surreal thing this last season that was fun.

Not sure if that's the same ep where she wad "campaigning". She got really drunk at a bar with the constitutes. Hubs had to pick her up.

"Take me to Taco Bell and I'll give ya a kiss".

Still a line we quote in my house.

Please don't get me wrong. I just looked at your profile link and really just took the "mysterious name" thing as a bit of a challenge. Bayham was the weirdest and first one I thought of. And won't guess again. And unfortunately have probably opened you up to more randoms assaulting you with guesses.
