    I was watching some thing last night out of order and it pissed me off.

    The guy cheats on the girl and there's fire works!

    The next episode they're happily in love, and they introduce a new character who I have already seen having adventures.

    It's jarring.

    The biggest thing that ticked me off is that we never got to see the fallout from Kennex telling everyone about Paul's "condition" when he called in sick that day.

    I said out, dammit!
    There was a very funny sitcom called "Committed" many years ago, starring Jennifer Finnigan, that only lasted one 12-ep season. It followed a young couple meeting and fallling in love. As such, it had an arc. It wasn't exactly serialized, but their relationship arc was. Naturally, the network (CBS?) showed it out of order. One week they were comfortable, the next week they were tentative, the next week they didn't know things about each other that they new two weeks before.
    AARGH!!!

    I remember it well. :)

    "SHHHHHHHUTUP CLOWN!"

    I was angered by the time shifts, but considering I wasn't watching it on TV, I could have adjusted for the atemporalness, but decided to just power through instead.

    Did you see Jennifer and Josh together again in Better with You?

    :)

    If they stuck Enlisted after/before B99 then it would have been a "hit" for Fox.
