Guys, I’m getting emotional watching all of these old WB upfront reels. Seriously, with the exception of maybe a few shows in 1999, I watched every one of them and it’s hitting me right in the nostalgia. 

This network pretty much my introduction to the serialized format at a time when I was able to understand it (not counting ER or The X-Files) and made me begin to appreciate the teen drama (oh the teen dramas).

Oh man. The days when I had not a single clue what ratings were or how the whole system works.

What’s up with confusing singular and plural Latin and Greek words?

NOTES:

  1. Outside technical and scientific contexts, data can be used as either a singular or plural noun.
  2. For forum, podium, and curriculum, it is better to turn them into plural words by adding an “s”; usage shows that forums, podiums, and curriculums are much more popular than their more “sophisticated” counterparts.
  3. We left out medium on purpose, because it can refer to so many different things: agency of action, method, psychic, compromise, etc. Consult a dictionary for clarification. (Both mediums and media can be its plural form.)
  4. The SAT actually tests these words (excluding forum, podium, and curriculum and their plurals), so it pays to learn this now.

Does anyone else think *curriculums* looks really weird?

Yes.  And yes.  I really hope these guys all get well written B plots or arcs in season 7.
