Rediscoveries and Second Lives

I can pick a single from an album. Back when they used to make albums, I could listen to one and pick out the singles before turning on the radio.

But with TV, I do not have this ability. If I love a show it is very likely to be canceled. My So-Called Life, Felicity, Dawson's Creek, Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Studio 60.

CBS had this great sitcom, "The Class." Crazy, right? a great sitcom on CBS.

It came out at the same time as "How I Met Your Mother". They were scheduled back to back. CBS canceled it after one season.

The head of this Class was Jesse Tyler Ferguson as Richie Velch. He has amazing physical comedy skills. Amazing.

The rest of the cast was also excellent including: Heather Goldenhersh as Lina Warbler and John Ritter's son Jason Ritter as Ethan Haas, the man who brings them all together in the pilot.

To my utter delight the episodes of "The Class" can be found on youtube.

Dear CBS, you were the shortsighted corporate dumbasses who canceled this amazing show. You did not know what you had. And considering that you never released the complete season on DVD, you don't know what to do with it now. So steer clear. Allow it to have a continued life online for all of us to enjoy.
