    Man, I think I am going to start commenting here as I listen to the Podcast because there are so many things I wanted to talk about and comment on. Well, the ONE thing I do remember was about Constantine. Sure, I get your point about it costing too much if the ratings aren't spectacular, but what about Supernatural. I, for one, really enjoy Supernatural. I have been watching almost since inception and don't think it looks cheesy and doubt it gets the ratings other network shows expect. Don't you think Constantine can find success with this same niche crowd? I hope it does because it looks fantastic.

      I also love supernatural, and I absolutely see your point, as it's definitely found a pretty good balance between budget and ratings. They have found a level of cost that makes that small audience really work for them. For me, the difference is mostly that NBC have very difference expectation's from their shows as it's all in all a much more popular network. As a result, from what I have heard, they have felt the need to spend a lot on Constantine in order to pull in those ratings, now if they are willing to adjust that downward if the show's ratings don't impress then great, but I'm not so confident they are willing to adjust. I'd love to be proven wrong. As I think it looks fantastic. I've just seen it happen before, networks like NBC are as willing to accept a show that just does OK, it's all about finding the next 'Lost'. Particularly with big budget stuff. It's exactly what killed almost human this year.

        Yeah, it is kind of a drag that NBC picked it up. Have you heard anything about Hulu possibly picking up Community? I think it would be so awesome. The only thing that concerns me is that Dan Harmon himself has said he is pessimistic about it and with Rick and Morty, Channel 101, Harmontown and God knows how many projects he has working, that he may not be as interested in revisted the series. What say you?!

          Harmon managed to balance all that this year, and we've heard from every reliable source that the hulu talks are definitely happening. In fact, Danny Pudi says they should know by the end of June about the shows fate. Which suggests to me there's a chance. Fingers crossed... http://www.craveonline.co.uk/tv/articles/705995-danny-pudi-says-hulu-has-until-the-end-of-june-to-save-community
