January 8, 2011: Surprise, Surprise

The show's postponed (many reasons were given, but...well, I've heard the language they're using before). I think I'm a couple weeks from not being able to get a hold of the producers easily anymore, and a month from the email that lets us all officially know it's dead. I hate this game.

Granted, the "door is still open" for starting in March. I just don't think that'll happen.
