Speaking of Netflix, and I understand that this might be a little off-topic, but is anybody else suspicious of the new rating system? In less than a month all of the original content has suddenly become highly rated and recommended while everything else falls off. I especially don't understand why it recommend stuff like Pacific Heat and The Ranch when all I've watched since the change (i.e. the recommendation algorithm cutoff date) is stuff like Lucha Underground, Black Mirror and Dear White People (which I highly recommend).

I'm not jumping to conspiracy, but it looks rather strange.

Looks like the show will be doing away with the standalone character episodes like in Season 4.

So I just found out Son of Zorn got canned.  It's unfortunate, but understandable since the ratings were rather abysmal for a prime-time slot.  Plus it was probably rather expensive to produce, the way they had to incorporate animation with live action.

Can't say I'll miss it all that much, though.  While Zorn himself was great and easily the highlight of the show, and even co-stars Cheryl Hines and Tim Meadows got laughs out of me on occasion, I just could not get past what a terrible character Alan was.  Not only is the "awkward high school teen" one of the worst characters someone can write, but 80% of the time this kid's dialogue consisted of saying exactly the wrong thing just for the sake of causing friction and it was a pain to sit through every time.  It's what ultimately bogged down an otherwise solid comedy show.

They also cancelled Making History, which I knew would be terrible.  There really isn't anything fresh and interesting you can do with a time travel premise these days.

The underdeveloped human characters were definitely Son of Zorn's Achilles heel. Cheryl Hines' character started getting interesting when bits and pieces of her past with Zorn's Sepherian culture started seeping out, but by then it was too late. The only human character I really liked was Zorn's female boss, but of course she didn't get nearly enough screen time. I also appreciated the genre savviness of Zorn in general without knowing a lot about He-Man.

At least The Last Man On Earth is still around, a post-apocalyptic show that I will gladly watch over The Walking Dead at this point.

I never really got into The Last man on Earth.  Saw the first episode but never really watched beyond that.  I guess I just didn't appreciate a TV show title outright lying to me.

Mr Rogers was good, but I also watched a show called Polka Dot Door. It was Canadian and it was about this big green kangaroo named Polkaroo. It was the shit.
