This thread is hilarious.
Actor says: I think sitcoms are the lowest form of television (which isn't that far fetched actually).
Average TrekBBS member go: Fuck you, asshole! He has always been an asshole. Blablabla.

He knew there would be long hours, so why pursue it? If you're concerned about having a steady paycheck, then bite your fucking tongue and go with the program. It's hard work but it's not like you're standing over a hot stove all day for minimum wage. Be grateful for what you have.
If you think the entire sitcom genre is a wasteland, then why get involved at all? Because you liked the character in the pilot? He seriously didn't consider the implications of that character continuing beyond the first episode? Obviously he did because he wanted the steady paycheck, so again, bite your fucking tongue and do your job, you hypocritical asshole. Really, what's so much more objectionable about the format and execution of sitcoms than variety/sketch shows like SNL, talk shows like his horrid late night show, or comedy movies?
If he liked the cast so much, he wouldn't constantly walk off the set and delay filming like a prima donna, he wouldn't be badmouthing them or their livelihood in public, and he wouldn't put them in the awkward position of having to take sides or remain neutral between him and the showrunners in public statements.
You actually realize he will never read this rant?
And if he did, you would need to get an infraction for flaming or something, lol.
