How many Pendantics does it take to screw in a lightbulb? 10, one to screw in the lightbulb and 9 to criticise the way he did it!   ;D

Is it possible I could catch TRL for 9th?

TBS brought some big renewal news on Wednesday, ordering new seasons for three of its sitcom series.

"People of Earth", "Wrecked" and "The Guest Book" will all be back in 2018.  That means you can expect more alien abductions, more stranded hijinks and more names in the Mount Trace cottage guest book.

"Since rebranding this network just two years ago, we have renewed 100 percent of our scripted originals, which have all generated impressive audience growth in an environment that's seeing mostly declines," said Brett Weitz, Executive VP of Original Programming for TBS.  "Our shows are connecting with fans, and we're going to keep making these genuinely funny comedies with the best creators in this business."

Given the 100-percent renewal rate, it was very unlikely TBS would cancel "People of Earth" or "Wrecked", given they've each got two good seasons in the books so far, but we're pleasantly surprised by the success of "The Guest Book".  In a TV landscape that may feel saturated with anthology series, it was a mystery if "The Guest Book" would rise to the top at TBS.  Following a dark, yet very funny debut season, it seemed to have accomplished in what it set out to do.
Know y'all been patiently waiting
I know you need me, I can feel it
I'm a beast, I'm an animal
I'm that monster in the mirror
The headliner, finisher
I'm the closer, winner
Best when under pressure
With seconds left I show up
If you really want more, scream it out louder

Wait, aren't the Vikings the villains?
AFAICT pretty much everyone in this series is some shade of bad, it's just a matter of how bad.

Even the kids! Four 10 year-olds talking about who would be the cruelist when they grew up!

Boy 1: I want to be a raider!

Boy 2: I want to be a reaver!

Boy 3: Well I want to be a beserker!

Boy 4: (head buried in a book) I want to be a dentist'

All 3 boys; A dentist?

Boy 4: A dentist pulls out peoples teeth.

All 3 boys: WOW! You're the meanist!

LOL!
