    I just wish they'd stop skipping episodes of Happy Days and actually play the Batman episodes in order. Oh and play the 3rd season of Transformers G1...

    I can't seem to find a general email address for them.

    For a new network it's not doing bad. People tend to look at the bigger cable networks and think they were always that way but I remember things like the launch year of Sci-Fi when every show was done on a shoe string budget and old B movies had to fill time slots.

    I'm digging "The Wonder Years". I DVR that show every night. It was one of my favorite shows as a kid.

    I too hope G1 Season 3 shows up.

    That's how I am with Happy Days and Batman. The DVR is wonderful. I'm just annoyed that they skip episodes, especially ones I really wanted to see again.

    That's weird. They haven't skipped any Wonder Years episodes - except to play all of the Christmas ones around Christmas time. Other than that, they have pretty much followed the correct order.

    The Batman ones are being played out of order (I even have my old Batbook from the 80's for reference) and it's more obvious with the 3rd season ones because the end of most episodes set up the villain for the following episode.

    With Happy Days, they didn't skip around, but they completely passed over most of the multi-part episodes (including the one where Fonzie jumps the shark!). Very disappointing, especially since the Happy Days DVD's are very slow at coming out due to music rights issues.


    EDIT: Sorry.. getting off track from the post. I think the Hub is a wonderful channel, and in fact, it's probably the channel we watch the most. I watch Transformers and Batman and Happy Days with my son on DVR, not to mention all the new stuff.

    My wife and I have been watching G.I. Joe quite a bit. She likes that one a lot and I have to agree. The A-Team "tribute" angle is interesting. Which is all we really watch on it since part 5 of the Prime premier aired. I did catch an episode of Doogie. That sure makes me feel old.

    Overall they seem to be doing pretty good based on what I've seen. The commercials for the other shows they air have me interested a bit, but I haven't really watched any of them. That "Dan" show or whatever it is might be funny but I haven't checked it out yet. I've already got 4-5 other shows I watch weekly and have a limit to how much I can sit and watch TV. Tosh.0 does a good job of maxing out my comedy quota for the week.

    Yeah, I've been tempted to check out that "Dan Vs" show too. The voice actor sounds like "Booger" from Revenge of the Nerds, and it looks funny.



    EDIT: Upon a quick Google, it appears that it IS Curtis "Booger" Armstrong! Cool!

    Dan Vs. is hilarious. Some of the jokes on the first three episodes are predictable but their timing and delivery make even those awesome.

    yeah, Dan Vs, is a good one.

    "Fraggle Rock" is the show that makes me feel old.

    overall I'd say the Hub is a good channel

    Caught my first glimpse of Dan vs. over the weekend and was surprised at how much I chuckled. Also got away with a few things, like air balloonists being cultists about to sacrifice a woman.

    That, My Little Pony, TF Prime, G.I.Joe as well as old favorites like Fraggle Rock, Batman Beyond, Men in Black, etc. makes it an interesting mix of Boomerang, Cartoon Network and TV Land.

    Happy CEO is good, means the channel will continue, which hopefully means it'll continue to grow and give us more juicy goodness.

    Just wish it was available here.

    Well if it continues to do well, it'll open up to more markets.

    I'm very happy with The Hub. We got some great shows in the line up and more stuff coming soon.

    Doogie Howser, Dan Vs., and Transformers Prime all make me as happy as Hasbro's CEO. Except, you know, I'm not getting money from it.

    I hope this channel grows. It is basically the future of the Transformers franchise.

    Yeah, Dan Vs. isn't a brilliant comedy show. It's actually kind of average. But it's dry wit and delivery of it's punch lines are what makes it worth watching.

    I really love this channel. I'd have to say that it's second to only AMC as my favorite and most-viewed channel. Also, I'm pretty happy to report that my wife feels this way as well regarding the Hub. Also, most of her friends feel similarly. When she told me of all of that, I was pretty thrilled to hear about how much people are enjoying the channel :)
