I dunno. Somehow, I think they'll somehow keep it going. This show is practically invulnerable to cancellation.



Speaking of Fox shows, I don't know how many here have seen Party of Five (I know Pikachulover did.) but they're bringing a reboot to Freeform.

They actually brought it on themselves. They were bragging about having kids content and attracting kids to the main youtube site, not the kids one.

it still bothers me how the admins behind youtube only just started supporting COPPA and its laws against the freedom of content creators on the site. i just started doing toy figure unboxing videos and the news was announced shortly after i'd done my first video.

You're absolutely correct. All this started with a lie told when the FTC started asking questions.



Both Google and YouTube promoted several child-directed channels. YouTube marketed itself as a top destination for kids in presentations to makers of popular children’s products. For example, Google and YouTube told Mattel that, "YouTube is a leader in reaching children (ages 6 to 11) against top TV channels”. Hasbro was told, "YouTube is the #1 website regularly visited by kids.”



But when confronted by the FTC, YouTube responded that it did not have users younger than 13 on its platform and therefore channels on its platform did not need to comply with COPPA.



Eighteen, (18!), privacy and consumer-protection groups, like the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood and the Center for Digital Democracy, filed a joint complaint with the Federal Trade Commission asking it to crack down on YouTube's data collection practices with kids.





No matter how much Google and YouTube lied, my opinion is that nothing can transfer parental responsibilities from parents to corporations. Parents who allow children unsupervised access online can't point the finger at anyone, but themselves.

according to some recent articles popping up, it turns out the news about the simpsons' cancellation isn't true. i just don't know who to believe anymore and the show hasn't been watchable in years anyway so i guess i should just ignore the show altogether. after all apu being gone from the show was like the final nail in the coffin to me.

Every TV show has a life-span and the creators responsible know that the secret to a show's immortality is to end it at the height of its popularity. If instead a show is allowed to die a slow, pitiful death at the hands of untalented newcomers, that could taint even the shows shiniest years with tarnish as fans turn away from the good, because of the bad!

Did I say I watched that show? I don't think I did. Anyways to clear up any confusion I've never seen an episode of Party of Five.

I recently bought the Genesis Mini during a Black Friday sale. $50 for 42 games is a really good discount. And also, with this and the SNES Classic, it looks like the 16-bit mini console wars lives on.
