Yeah. It sucks. Noah's Arc will not see a third season. I've supported this show from the beginning, when the LOGO network was a just a horny tingle in its daddy's nuts. But alas, they're turning it into a movie -- LOGO's very first feature film.
Huh? Do you smell fish too?
This is gravely disappointing news, and strange to boot. A show which isn't good enough to remain on air -- or, as some have said on Rod 2.0, has run its course (which I strongly disagee with) -- but its good enough for the big screen?
Bullshit, pure and simple. There's something else going on here. And we need to be damned angry about it.
Sure, the show had its flaws. Sure, there are some in our community who shamefully didn't support it. Sure, Noah was over-the-top. But don't pretend each of us has never known or still know someone who's that unusual.
If LOGO doesn't receive a firestorm of letters, emails, and angry blog posts from our demographic (which has already demonstrated the power it can wield) ... then shame on our community.
After lobbying for LOGO to cable providers across the nation on the promise of Noah's Arc, now LOGO gives us its ass to kiss with a movie that will probably never materialize.
I'm pissed off right now as I stare at my season one box set, so much so that I won't be purchasing season two until they (or some other network) approves a season three. Period.
Fuck LOGO ... those back-stabbin', double-talkin' bastards. I have half a mind to call comcast and ask how I can remove LOGO from my channel line-up.

Except from SBC Baptists want sexual segregation?
“...They agree that the role of pastor is reserved for men, based on a verse in 1 Timothy in which the Apostle Paul says, "I permit no woman to teach or have authority over a man."
It’s in the Bible, right there in black and white. Did Paul come up with that little diddy during his cave exile, or before? But if that’s the mindset now -– and I’m all for it, mind you -- when is some ultra-conservative going to introduce a bill that would bring stoning adulterous women back? That was the only really cool thing about the Stone-Age. We didn’t play then. Plus, we got too many ‘ho’s today anyway, out there runnin’ around being nasty.
I mean …
If we’re gonna get real about the Bible, let’s get real about the whole damn thing. If I were Hillary I'd watch my back. No good Christian can vote for a woman President. And if he knows like I know, Brad better hustle Angelina outta the country, before they throw her in a hole and clock a bitch.~~~
