    GCB was good, it's too bad ABC canned it because a small group of people didn't like the shows name.

    It makes me like the Ryan Reynolds version better. On the negative it doesn't have Neil Patrick Harris but on the positive it doesn't take too damn long to reveal the mother and I somewhat care for the main character
    ...There's a Ryan Reynolds version?

    do you know what Harry Kim from Voyager is doing these days? he's a stand up comedian
    That's a coincidence...a lot of Star Trek Voyager was a big joke. Sorry, couldn't help it. =P

Following the success of that, the second round of shorts were created and designed to lead into ROTS, concurrent to "Obsession" and "Labyrinth Of Evil". Lucas opted to have the show developed in-house with the creation of Lucas Animation, with three hundred employees in both California and Singapore.

    According to Lucas, the first series was essentially a pilot for what they wanted to do with the current series.
    I agree that the original Clone Wars was far more interesting than the current series, although I did like the recent episodes with the Jedi younglings. They seriously need to do a Jedi Academy cartoon.
    Thus do I write the first chapter of my new scripture. And the first verse is "Let it all burn."

    Yea I was not sure if they canned it because of that or something else as the ratings were not too bad. What's stupid is that Christian groups whined about it, yet it was really the most Christian/family value show they had on tv as far the characters and so forth. How dumb are these people that they killed the only show that their audience would watch just because of the title? Meanwhile their audience will be exposed to Modern Family.

    Really devout Christians, who take their religion too seriously, really don't like it when their faith is slandered in any way.

    It wasn't a very good show, not everything that hangs around for one season is good. Pushing Daisies on the other hand was great.

    the ratings weren't great....and it kind of lost steam toward the end of the season

    pilot and the first two episodes after that were damn funny though

    If they're really the obsessive type, they probably watch the various religious channels if they can afford digital cable, or a dish.

    Really devout Christians don't take anything too seriously. As a famous Christian apologist says, "Moderate strength is shown in violence, supreme strength in levity."
    "I came to the conclusion that the optimist thought everything good except the pessimist, and the pessimist thought everything bad, except himself." -- G.K. Chesterton
