Just dropping by so I can tell more people who will be depressed with me about this - Parks and Recreation isn't coming back till midseason (i.e. NEXT JANUARY).

Agghhh. It's probably because of Amy's pregnancy, and that's a great enough reason, but I'm bummed because this show needs ratings and starting it midseason is just going to go "hey, guys, our show sucks enough that we didn't get to premiere it on time!"

No, not that, mostly I'm annoyed/sad that we need to go SEVEN MONTHS WITHOUT IT. Why do you do this to me, NBC!? If you cut down the number of episodes I will burn you to the ground, I promise.

ETA: I just realised this means all of you on my flist have more time to catch up with it. Do it.

My thoughts exactly.

1. It's probably going to suffer when it comes back. It has a short season again, I think, and its ratings (which aren't good to begin with) will dip even further until NBC sees fit to pull the trigger. And they have been exceptionally trigger-happy lately, so I really fear for the show. I love it and its people too much for this!

2. The waiting is going to straight-up kill me too. Oh my god.

Thursday is going to hurt so bad.

Mike Schur claims that it wasn't moved because of Amy, and that she'd been working really hard to get as much done as she could before she left. I think they were actually totally blindsided by this, which makes me even more irritated. NBC is seriously just messing with everyone these days.

Regardless, I think it's going to suffer. I really hope they don't get knocked off track, too -- and that the viewers don't! I mean, we'll be there, but will the general public? It's so fucking hard to keep their attention when there's such a long hiatus!

... Outsourced will probably be terrible.

I feel your pain. Parks and Rec is in the same situation that Chuck was in this year- we still got 19 episodes though, so hopefully Parks and Rec will at least get this many as well, maybe more.

This means though that I'll definitely have watched it by then. I've heard so many good things about season 2 that I definitely want to give it another shot, because the first three episodes of s1 didn't pull me in.

I'm still gonna be optimistic, because this was the boat 30 Rock was in a few seasons ago and they stuck it out because...they believed in Tina Fey and were getting critically acclaimed? Well, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey comedically, writer-ally are on the same level, IMO, and I hope that they would have faith in her and her brilliance.

*crosses fingers*

Ack, this really sucks. January! So far away! Hopefully they'll release the DVD sooner than that, though, because I missed a few S2 episodes before I became a ~believer.

Maybe it will be a season with fewer re-runs? Hopefully it doesn't suffer because of this hiatus. I have a feeling The Office is going to go off the air soon with Steve Carell leaving at the end of next season so I don't think NBC can afford to lose two comedies from their Thursday night lineup (which is the strongest it's been since Seinfeld and Friends ruled the airwaves). But at least I'll be caught up by the time it comes back?

UGH, ARE YOU SERIOUS?! I mean, you're right, it's probably pregnancy related, but I'm still really sad =(
