    I must admit I'm not hugely surprised.. it always did seem a bit "risque" for Disney's average audience statistic.

    Though the way this is going, I won't be shocked anymore if the novels and comics get axed next, as they seem to be going through everything one-by-one.

    It would be hard to see them axing Star Wars and Legacy immediately after they started. At least, I hope they wouldn't do that.

    But yeah, no surprise about Detours. Still disappointing, IMO.

    First 1313 and now this. The mouse is a cruel emperor indeed.

    Is 1313 officially canned?

    As for Detours, to be fair they did say that it was postponed, but yeah... I know what that usually really means. While I personally didn't think this needed to be an ongoing show, many of the clips were funny so I was low-level anticipating it.

    I guess Ackbar's words about it being a wrap were prophetic...

    Alas, given this news, I might need to retire my Lil' Ackbar Icon and revert to my old Ackbar avatar. :p

    So this is what Ackbar meant when he said "It's a wrap!". Nobody believed him, just like they never believe everything is a trap.

    Copycat. [face_not_talking]



    Or you could completely surprise absolutely nobody and use a Stazi icon? Because at least Legacy's still coming....


    Crap, I shouldn't have said anything.

    @Jello oops. No wonder I was tempted to call Ackbar a prophetic fish. Must have subconsciously seen your post. [face_hypnotized]

    Or, great minds think alike, amirite? ;)

    Am I the only person who never gave a single damn about this thing at any point?

    I've actually never even bothered to look at the trailers admittedly. :p

    Are you kidding? You need to keep it forever now. At least until newbies start asking you what obscure source you got it from.

    I see through your callous fa├žade, sir.

    I would have checked it out, but nah, I can't say I'm particularly sad to see it go. It's 1313 that's killing me.

    This.

    I'm honestly dreading what they're going to replace it with now... If it's Episode 7: The Video Game then eugh... [face_sick]

    They're just going to redesign it so the protagonist has a lightsaber, aren't they? [face_plain]

    I think 1313 hurts more because I finally, something like six months after I bought it, got around to playing Uncharted 3. Almost finished with it. Great game, and I would love to see something of a similar style done in the Star Wars setting (just hopefully with less cheesy writing. Works for Uncharted, wouldn't work for Dark Times).

    Due to dropping Detours, no more Seth McFarlane Emperor is a crying shame. I fully accept a huge chunk of his characterization as own personal canon. "What do you mean THEY blew up the Death Star?!" seems like it could fit. Same thing with the "stromtrooper" escalator. Seriously, I just wanted to see the show for that.

    "Detours" isn't officially cancelled, just postponed.

    What channel was it supposed to air on?

    Seth McFarlane Palpatine was my least favorite part of the Robot Chicken specials. His voice just inspires a feeling of dread these days (particularly when his Palpatine voice sounds so much like Stewie).

    Yes... postponed...

    I'll buy that one when I'm holding Blood Oath and the Kemp Duology in my hands. :p

    Good point. Plus I just love the Lil' Ackbar icon. It shows that even a Fleet Junkie can have a sense of humor. :D

    Speaking of newbies/oldies, I am just about 2 months away from having been a JC Forum member for 10 years. Not as old as some of you, but not exactly younglings either. :p
