Oh no, talk me down from the scary place  
So yesterday some of us in the former VM-fandom were quite thrilled at the news that Rob Thomas was fired or quit Miss/Guided. I was one of them as I quite enjoy Judy Greer and wanted to watch the show and I was NOT happy with most of RT's choices the last two seasons (and two episodes of s1) of Veronica Mars.

Well, this morning I read from a "source" on the E! Online Forums that David Greenwalt is leaving Moonlight. I was bummed because I liked Greenwalt's work on Buffy and Angel. But that was it. Just bummed because of the reason stated above and because I wanted Moonlight to succeed well enough to get Jason Dohring some much-deserved attention.

And then, my brain just put the two together and OH. GOD. NO!!!!!!!!!!! Please, please, please TV Gods, do NOT tell me that if Greenwalt did leave and that with an EP slot open and RT now without a show, he'll be taking over?!?!? Please don't tell me that I'll have to deal with RT AGAIN!? More importantly, please don't tell me that Jason will have to deal with RT again!?!?!??

Nooooooooooooooooooooo! Talk me down, talk me down!!!!

I just, no, no, no, no, no. Jason's a good guy, right? No higher power could be that cruel. Just NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! The timing of it just scares the crap out of me. We know that Silver didn't like La Bell (what a shocker!), but for all we know he was buddy-buddy with Rob and therefore would be just as happy as giving him this opportunity, especially since he created such gold with Jason. (Not saying that it was anyone but Jason who did that, but you know how some people think and who's to say that Silver doesn't accredit Jason/Logan's popularity to Thomas also?).

Just, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

Ugh God NOOO! Plz don't allow RT to get onto ANOTHER show and RUIN another potentially great JFDOH character...I may just have to scream!

Heh, I first read that as Piz don't allow RT...because RT is Piz, of course. :p

I know. I'm desperately waiting for the announcement of the new EP.
too much going on omg: kaitlin - gag mediamondrocker on July 26th, 2007 01:47 pm (UTC)
No. FUCKING. WAY!

And why the hell is Greenwalt leaving???
Arabian: Little Boy Bluearabian on July 27th, 2007 01:39 pm (UTC)
Health reasons is what the Hollywood Reporter said, some other guy (but most of his info seems wrong) says creative differences. Considering how DG has been acting, I'm going with health reasons. Poor guy.

Sigh.

Crap? Greenwalt left? Noooooooooooooooooooooo. Well that just sucks.
Arabian: Allison Janneyarabian on July 28th, 2007 02:24 pm (UTC)
He did, but the rumor is that his replacement is someone who worked with Greenwalt and has served under him, so that's a positive.

My brain immediately went there too. It just kind of fits, what with the Joel Silver connection and the MotW focus. And oh man. Just... ugh.

BUT.

The Greenwalt departure is by no means solid. It wasn't reported by KV, just by a random commenter in the forum. I'm not saying it's not credible, but we JUST DON'T KNOW YET.

So I guess I'm talking you down by saying it's too early to panic. Let panicking commence if we hear confirmation that this rumor is true. And with ComiCon around the corner, we should know soon one way or the other.
Arabianarabian on July 28th, 2007 02:25 pm (UTC)
Well, as we know it was confirmed, BUT, nothing is pointing to RT right now. In fact, the replacement looks to be a protege of sorts of DG.
sourisvho: Eeeksourisvho on July 26th, 2007 02:26 pm (UTC)
Oh, no, that would be AWFUL! I swear, when I giggled about RT leaving Miss/Guided, I then immediately thought, "Oh, no, what if he ends up on a show you watch??"

If that happened, I swear.... Did JD run over karma's puppy or something?
Arabian: World of Squee!arabian on July 28th, 2007 02:27 pm (UTC)
Looks like JD has committed no vehicular Kp-manslaughter as there's been not a whiff of RT's name anywhere and the rumored replacement worked with DG. Phew!
lavender gooms: universethe_spin on July 26th, 2007 02:32 pm (UTC)
I thought about that too. Let's hope that a.) it isn't true that Greenwalt's leaving or at the very least b.) Joel Silver & Co. are smarter than that. Don't let me down, Joel!!
Arabianarabian on July 28th, 2007 02:27 pm (UTC)
Well, we know the DG part was true, but it looks like RT being involved was just our worst imaginings.
WeHo M.: Celebs - JDoh Biteafrocurl on July 26th, 2007 04:10 pm (UTC)
I hope to all that is good and holy that he doesn't get involved with this, though I doubt it from the way he sounded about working during a podcast I went to last month.
lavender gooms: codeword awkwardthe_spin on July 26th, 2007 04:14 pm (UTC)
Why, did he say he wanted to take time off? Cause that be GREAT. Fine with me, RT.
WeHo M.: VM - Weirdafrocurl on July 26th, 2007 04:17 pm (UTC)
It wasn't so much time off as time to work on this new show he's working on with Paul Rudd (he gushed about that show more than Miss/Guided.)
lavender goomsthe_spin on July 26th, 2007 04:20 pm (UTC)
Oh, the 'Waiters' one? And also: nooo, because I love Paul Rudd and he should just work with Judd Apatow forever and ever.
WeHo M.afrocurl on July 26th, 2007 04:22 pm (UTC)
That one, and I have no idea if anything good will come of it, despite how much fun they had.
Arabian: Jason_Say Noarabian on July 28th, 2007 02:28 pm (UTC)
Yeah, let him do his thing and stay FAR, FAR away from JD. It sounds like we have nothing to worry about.
hiddeneloisehiddeneloise on July 26th, 2007 09:47 pm (UTC)
Sigh. It's official:

I am not that concerned about Rob Thomas. As much as I dislike the guy, my main concern is always for Jason. And I am sad that DG left, because he was quality. I am also hoping it wasn't any kind of ugly. Last thing this show needs is more doubt. God, can't JD get a break?!
Arabian: Little Boy Bluearabian on July 28th, 2007 02:29 pm (UTC)
Hopefully, this is just a small glitch with new guy rumored to be DG's protege of sorts and all will be well.
sweetumms33sweetumms33 on July 27th, 2007 01:18 am (UTC)
Woah, I am behind on LJ, WHAT? That's nuts! JD must have some seriously bad karma, or how else could this happen, its just too terrible. BOO!
Arabianarabian on July 28th, 2007 02:29 pm (UTC)
Hopefully this will all turn out for the best. Maybe the 'Angel' comparsions will stop now ....
