"Pretty Lady, Right Here"
WC: But is it cool-weird or scary-weird?
SR: Weird. I'm just a very uncomfortable person in general. It's just one more element -- it's a discomfort monkey wrench thrown into my precariously moving machine of a psyche. But it's fun. It's nice. The fact that people like the show is all that matters.
WC: We've been occasionally getting emails from Judd through the person who runs the old Freaks and Geeks mailing list.
SR: Maureen [Jennings].
WC: Right -- saying that we should send emails in support of the show. Do you think that'll help? Do you know if people are doing that?
SR: I hear some people are. I think my mom probably is.
WC: I know definitely people on our forums are, and I did.
SR: Oh, that's nice! It could help! I don't know. The way the networks are run is so ridiculous that literally the viewers writing letters telling them that "we do watch the show and like it" isn't enough for them.
SR: It's really stupid! Another stupid thing that we've all realized that I'm sure they haven't thought of is that colleges don't have rating boxes. And it's huge at colleges -- that's probably who watch us the most, but there zero people there are accounted for.
SR: And they wonder why we get no girl ratings. Every teenage guy in the world watches Undeclared, and not one girl, I don't think. Yeah, that's exactly why -- two of the girliest shows on television are on opposite us.
WC: Which are both good! They're good shows!
SR: Yeah, exactly!
WC: But you shouldn't have to have three TVs in order to watch all the shows that you like.
SR: Exactly. That's why I don't watch them.
WC: That's why when I heard that X-Files was going off the air, I thought maybe what they'll try to do instead is have another hour of comedy instead of some other shitty drama.
