If I could just interject here... What in the name of Jay Wolpert has happened to Step Up? My notes show it's only been played once this season, and there's only about a week to go (not counting the usual summertime specials and make-goods). Maybe it was featured on one of the pre-emptions, I don't know, or perhaps it'll turn up on one of the remaining shows. If not, however, the question must be raised: Has Step Up, which has always been played but sparingly anyway, finally been removed from the lineup? If it has, I can probably guess the reason... the bailout rule, which even I'll admit is probably too generous for its own good.

Anyway... The smoker is probably to be avoided here.

  1. What in the bloody hell happened to this recap!?!

    All the text in tables is bigger than normal for no apparent reason, and I guess the "[rg]", "[koishi-no]", and "[link-surrender]" bits were supposed to be images, but there are no images there, or even <img> tags, for that matter!

    Looks like SOMEONE was in a rush to get this recap out! ¬_¬;

    1. As it happens, I did encounter a major problem when posting this; Firefox suddenly froze and refused to unfreeze. I ended up having to post it using Chrome, which does do some funky things to resize text that appears to be outside my control. In the process, I did forget to upload/insert the images you noted.

      All is fixed now though, except for the size problems.

      ...I'm human. I make mistakes. That's not a sin, right?

    1. Ugh, I did. Thanks.

      (Maybe Alex was right, as belligerent as he was in making the point, and I did rush this one more than I should have...)
