"Welcome to the Neighborhood"

I feel like I blogged about this before, but I can’t find the post if I did. Bleh.

I was interested in this show. It seemed indulgent and exploitative, but at the same time, I felt that good discourse could come from it. The subject matter was edgy because it played on real societal problems, and that meant there was the potential that people could learn from it.

When I heard it wasn’t going to be aired, I was a little disappointed. I probably wouldn’t have watched it on TV anyway, since air doesn’t come in very well here, but I would have enjoyed reading gossip articles about what had happened in the show and seeing what I thought about it.

This article on CNN has made me want to see the show even more. Apparently the show ends on a positive note, which is amazing and uplifting, and I’d like to see how it happens.

I don’t know if ABC will ever air the show, but if they don’t, I hope somebody on the inside will steal copies and post them on the Internet ;>
