There have been some concerns that the Chukar TV series (that is, the TV series that is almost certainly being filmed by the hidden cameras at our house on Chukar Circle) has, as it were, "jumped the shark." It's a legitimate fear. I mean, the writers killed off a major character last season, in addition to making my life impossibly complicated and poor Butterfly's life Buffy Season Six unpleasant. Then they immediately--like, the next episode, practically--find a "new" character--a character that Butterfly, October and Spotty happen to know, but haven't spoken to since "Chukar Circle" went on the air, and who just happened to desperately and conveniently need a new place. In fact, I don't remember him as a recurring character since they before they cancelled my previous series, "Pickman's Abbey." Anyway, it's way too cut-and-dried. I'm worried that they're trying to spin a show that got too tragically weird into a "Friends"-esque "bizaare and semicompatible Gen-Exers sit around and talk about nothing." I'm sure we'll lose our audience.

It is vitally important that NOBODY at Chukar dates any of the other inmates, or we might as well just start planning our spin-off series right there. And if anybody encounters a floating green genie that only they can see, we're going to be having problems.

At least you didn't go the route of Cousin Oliver.

No, we tried the unneccessarily cute child star in "Pickman's Abbey." She was even terribly ill for a while. We've learned that particular lesson.

Do you mean ANY floating green genies, or just NEW ones?...

New ones...? You haven't been into the bread with the funny colored spots again?

I want new writers. Sure the ones I have now recently gave me a new job but that does NOT make up for the dead roommate. And I want a better dialog (and a S.O. that is sane and mature would be nice too).

That's just it, they're throwing in so much stuff in a three-episode period, it's too much! I'm pretty sure the "sane and stable relationship" thing is NOT part of the script, though. I hope the new roomie is okay with The Curse of Relationship Weirdness.

Hey, at least you're in primetime, or at least were at one point if not currently.. I mean, it's better than a soap opera or PBS (British Comedies excluded).

Does an annoying green and purple dragon count?

Who's burps make flowers grow?

Sorry, you're probably going to be "just visiting" as an occasional guest star. Don't worry, it's better this way.

We have no body-oriented super powers like the dragon. Well.. uhm.. We are annoying though! Can we be tie ins? Although possibly, our show is pretty boring. Actually, could be we're part of the crew.

Regular guest stars that eventually go on to their own short-lived series. Sorry, kittens!

The perfect time for gratuitous cameos! You should invite more successful people over and applaud them as they move from room to room.

We don't HAVE any successful people! I think the couch scared them away...

In which episode does "The Mysterious Woman from up North" visit? I heard it may be filmed in March, but I hadn't heard any convenient dates. I do know that by then, I will need to thaw out someplace in the southern reaches of the U.S. We'll also be closing on a house, but I can sneak away for a bit. Unless you can visit and bring the sun with you?

Hee hee...I might be able to bring Whines with me, but he's not really the sun. Are you really maybe possibly coming south? That would be exceedingly spiffy :)
