falulatonks: ([parks] tom and april - WHAT)
Yes, I'm very busy and important, I just want to say -

NBC just ordered a full season of Outsourced, which means it's not ending in six episodes, which means the slot that we were hoping Parks and Recreation would take in January is full.

NBC, what is your problem. Why did you order a full season of Outsourced. Have you seen any critics liking that show. Why did you order a full season of Parks and Recreation and then not bring it back. Have you seen any critics not liking that show?! I DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND YOU RIGHT NOW AND I WANT TO PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE. NBC, I WANT TO PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE.

This is maybe a lot of rage directed towards something of disproportionate importance, but I've been studying a lot and mathematical equations are equating themselves to facts about Cold War history right now and the internet is getting annoying and Fringe isn't back until November and I DON'T KNOW WHEN MY FAVOURITE SHOW IS COMING BACK, IF IT'S COMING BACK AT ALL.

There was a sentence here somewhere containing the words "teetering", "melodrama", and "really fucking wrong", but I can't remember what it was, and I think I may have accidentally deleted it. Oops. It's probably for the best; I start using unnecessarily long words (e.g. "disproportionate importance", what does that even mean) when I get angry.

In other news, today, one of my friends and I dissected everything that's disturbing and wrong and offensive about Twilight to a friend who genuinely wanted to know. We did this instead of studying for an economics test this afternoon. It was time well-spent.

TV for the next few weeks are as follows: Castle, Cougar Town and/or Modern Family, and Fringe. This is a big improvement.

ETA: Stephen Fry on Language, in kinetic typography. I love this. I love words!

ETA again: To be honest and completely rational, I get why NBC is doing what it's doing. And my problem with Outsourced isn't entirely its handling of racial issues, because they do make an effort to make ignorance not mean, but with good intention. I just don't find it funny. (And I'm feeling irrational now, deal with it.)
