I don’t have a whole lot to say about this. I think we all knew the series was going to be a financial success regardless of its quality; this thing was swimming in publicity and fan fervor back when it was just a rumor. It is disappointing news, though, if you ask me. This makes a potential second season even more likely when the first already had a paper-thin, canon-breaking story. It’s not surprising that people will swallow this crap, but that doesn’t make it less frustrating.
