    Kricfalusi was fired for constantly blowing production deadlines.
    Plus I don't think it helped that he was intent on pushing boundaries on what is is ostensibly a kid's network.

    Although I'm bummed, I'm not at all surprised. The show seems to have had just about zero impact, even in the geek press. I mean, if you're a genre show and io9 doesn't cover you, you're basically screwed. (The only stories they did on the show were about the trailers before the show launched, and its cancellation.)

    I tried Penny Dreadful and watched 1.5 seasons, it was OK but just didn't grab me in any way, so I bailed

    PD: City of Angels was a very different beast...

    Need to watch all of the first?
    And the biggest question, worth it for just 1 season and done?

    The stories aren't linked. This might as well be a different show entirely. Also yes, I think it's worth it.

    I have never been a TN fan, and I also long for the days of Stewart, but I will say, I think TN has been BETTER doing his thing from home. I can't put my finger on why though (though his guests just aren't as diverse or as interesting to me than JS used to have). Maybe because i don't really follow black culture too much but every week he has some rapper or black actor on at least 3x a week and sometimes every day each week. Maybe it's just who he feels more comfortable interviewing because it's more his wheelhouse. I used to say that TN was just not a great interviewer, but now I hardly even stick around for the interviews anymore because his guests just don't interest me.

    Early on, I didn't like him, and maybe it was just a comfort level, maybe it was just that I was such a huge fan of Jon, and maybe it's because he's someone from South Africa who's trying to come off as someone who understands US politics at just the wrong time. But over time he's grown into the show. He's still not as good as Jon, but I enjoy his perceptive. It's different from how John Oliver sees things and how Sam Bee sees things, and so forth. It's just another perspective. And he does a great Trump impersonation :)

    the former, I don't even remember hearing of the latter ones, though I probably have.

    Skip shows or segments however you like, of course, but IMO, 1.9x QuickMode is good for talk shows/interviews.. I'll sometimes watch the main part of TDS at 1.5x then the interview at 1.9x (instead of skipping it).. some guests I will skip.. but heck, on other late night shows, even guests I like, I watch sped up, and skip entirely lots of guests. I finally started watching my huge backlog of Late Shows, and I'm finally well into the lockdown episodes. Though I skip MANY guests, I watch the first segment & the 2nd segment if it's Meanwhile...

    (Just like, even my favorite podcasts, I listen as fast as I can fully understand it.. since I then can enjoy more of them in all..and just like with Tivo and recording shows, I'm subscribed to far more podcasts than I can keep up on.)

    I enjoyed the first season (once I wrapped my head around the concept; had to watch the first episode twice), but still haven't gotten around to watching the second yet.

    Looks like I won't be watching anything on CBS anytime soon. Maybe in the spring?
