Extant

The #1 network among Orcs ages 18-49 just threw Extant in the trash after two very low rated seasons. I never finished season 1 because I hated it. I heard they retooled the show for season 2, but as Danimal says, “If it involved retooling, it was garbage to begin with.” Meanwhile, Fox renewed Bob’s Burgers for 2 more seasons. Do you think Halle is at In-N-Out right now eating her feelings, or taking Gabriel Aubry to court for something she thinks he did?
