Dear FOX:

WHY IS THERE BASEBALL ON MY TELEVISION INSTEAD OF PREHISTORIC DINOSAUR TIMES?

EXPLAIN.

MAKE IT GOOD.

[update! FOX: Well, you see, you forgot Terra Nova was on until 7:13, and were resigned to missing a quarter of the plot in your impatient haste to snap up all the shippy times, careful rationing and not biting off (watching) more than you can chew (finishing writing about) be damned. It is currently overtime and the game is theoretically almost over, so now you can actually make a dent in your work and still not miss your show!

RS: ...damn, that was good.]

Also, there's something gratifying about the fact that Tumblr can manifest itself as a giant chatroom when important real-life events are happening; see 57 insta-posts of communal rage about baseball under #terra nova. I, of course, continue to LJ it up. For posterity. It's been a long time since I've wanted to watch a beloved show live on FOX; I forgot how rage-inducing its sports are. Even worse than football on CBS.

ARGH! I didn't realize baseball was screwing things up, so my DVR missed part of the episode. Sigh. Okay, to the torrents I go.

As I remember, X-Files fans were seriously pissed because Fox always held off its season premiere until after the World Series had ended.

Yes they did, and yes we were ("we" including me for the, er, one season I was anticipating a premiere before it got canceled). This is slightly better than that...emphasis slightly.
