Arthur - Where is the Show Going?

    My PBS has aired an old episode this week, "How the Cookie Crumbles/Sue Ellen's Little Sister."
    I tuned in thinking it would be a newer episode, but when I looked on the show info...It was that episode.

    I honestly stopped watching the show by the time I was in elementary. I frankly was surprised it was still going on by the year 2009.

    Well, I'm just going to go ahead and come right out and say it: a couple of years ago, I wrote a spec script for the show, and producer/director Greg Bailey helped guide me through the right people to contact at WGBH to get my spec submitted; after reading and signing a release form, I submitted my spec to WGBH and was told that it would be forwarded to their head writer at their next summer story meeting and that I would be informed if anything would become of the script. Like I said, that was two or three years ago, and no further word, and now that Season 20 is finished and titles, descriptions, and airdates for Season 21 have been released, I don't believe anything is going to become of it. It was an interesting experience though, and even Greg Bailey was surprised I got as far as I did in the process.

    There's hope for Season 22 now, not because we need it, but because it appears that Season 21 will end with another one of those godawful talking Pal and Kate episodes, and if ARTHUR isn't renewed after this, then what a very poor way to end a series.

    Oooh, that's really cool! What was the script on, don't mind me asking?

    No, I did stop watching the newer stuff. I stopped watching regularly in 2011. The show was already going south around then, but the change to flash animation was the final nail in the coffin. I remember how shocked I was by how awful the season 16 premiere was (the first time they used flash) and I stopped watching. But, I'll still watch the older stuff (seasons 1-7).

    That's pretty neat. Would you mind giving us a description/plot summary of what you wrote?
