a rather valid prediction !
And here's the thing: I haven't even seen every episode of the fourth season of 'Til Death, just the highlights of Doug's arc. It's possible that even weirder stuff crept in around the edges in other episodes. After all, Reo, his cast, and crew could be pretty certain no one was watching this. Why not just do something completely nuts? Further compounding problems and making the show seem even more hallucinatory was Fox's decision to screen the 15 episodes they never aired from season three along with the season four episodes, so the show would ping-pong randomly between a series about a bitter married couple having strained fights and living with JB Smoove to a weird, hallucinatory nightmare of suburban life filtered through the perception of a stoned, possibly mentally ill manchild. Ally would be played by a blonde in one episode (from season three), then a brunette in another, then another brunette in yet another. Plus, Fox aired the episodes all out of order. Doug and Ally's wedding aired before their engagement, and the birth of their first child—intended to be the series finale—was followed by three more rejected third season episodes. The show itself seemed to give up as well, tossing weird, random sound effects and obnoxiously loud music over the top of establishing shots or having a recurring plot where guest star Martin Mull is in a dom-sub relationship with a woman who may or may not be a psychopath.

Republicans have television personalities and talk show hosts.

And Republicans hand them your money!

I tell you what some of the posters here have gotten Obama groupie freaky.
USAsince and lily shout out people who criticize their "leader" accusing them of being un-American and hating America.
Homer, USAsince, and Yeah try to censor recognized news sources while promoting political websites.
I tell you what, when your allegiance is to a leader only -you have totally loss your way to objectivity and are falling into the Hitler-type mentality that created that dictatorship.
You should remove your head from your ass, I guarantee you will see things more clearly, well not at first but with a little soap and water...

I would never want to censor any rightwing site, I get way too much enjoyment from them.

Unlike rightwingers, being a moderate I celebrate the diversity and opinions of the liberals and the conservatives.

Can you imagine a country populated with only conservatives? Booooring.

Liberals? Shirley that would devolve into lord of the flies.

If we just had one or the other I'd probably move to another country.

There, I think I've sufficiently pissed everybody off.

To be honest, if I were handed this situation and I couldn't run far, far away for some reason, I would just produce something so balls-out bizarre that it would be borderline unwatchable, a weird expression of just how much I hate the television idiom and working in it, as well as a desperate plea for anyone to watch me, anyone at all.
I tend to agree with you.

NBC has a heavily laden leftwing bias -still not a political site- and you called them earlier a rightwing source.

Face it, the Obama groupies are refusing to use any news sources other than KNOWN politically paid for political site.

That is moon bat crazy!

I do not give up my freedom to use recognized news sources due to idiotic rules.

But if that were it, that wouldn't qualify the fourth season of 'Til Death as some sort of weird, outre comedy. It would certainly be more interesting than what the show had been before, but not necessarily worth seeking out. Perhaps realizing that the role of Ally (Joy and Eddie's daughter) had been played by four actresses over the course of the series (including Krysten Ritter!) while the role of boyfriend/fiancee/husband Doug had been played by only Sharp, the series embarked on an astoundingly bizarre story arc: It had Doug realize he was a character in a sitcom whose wife kept getting recast, then sent him to psychotherapy to make peace with this fact.
I do not think I could put that any more succinctly than you just did my young friend.

Special people get to do special things...

Google's Corp Jets...

"Since 2007, the private airplane fleet owned by Google execs has been housed in a hangar at NASA’s Ames Research Center just outside Google’s Mountain View, Calif. headquarters. The taxpayer-funded hangars are intended for aircraft performing scientific research to assist NASA, but it appears that Google’s jets perform very little actual scientific research (unless calculating the circumference of Mai Tai umbrellas on the beaches of Babelthuap somehow qualifies)."

Abortion clinics and campaigning...

"Planned Parenthood of Northern New England has agreed to pay a $30,000 penalty to settle a complaint filed by group known as Let Vermont Vote. The group said Planned Parenthood failed to register its Action Fund as a political action committee and file contribution reports. The complaint also said the PAC had accepted contributions bigger than the $2,000 per donor limit."

"The Planned Parenthood Action Fund spent $119,437 on advertising that criticized Brian Dubie, the Republican candidate for governor in 2010."

His first book, A Drink Before the War (1994), which introduced the recurring characters Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro, won the 1995 Shamus Award for Best First P.I. Novel. The fourth book in the series, Gone, Baby, Gone, was adapted to a film of the same title in 2007; it was directed by Ben Affleck and starred Casey Affleck and Michelle Monaghan as Kenzie and Gennaro. When commenting on the movie after receiving a sneak peek, Lehane commented that "I saw the movie and it's terrific, I wasn't gonna say anything if I didn't like it but it's really terrific." Reportedly, Lehane "has never wanted to write the screenplays for the films [based on his own books], because he says he has 'no desire to operate on my own child.'"

A congressman should always have a do boy for that sort of stuff__just saying.
