Napoleon Dynamite -- the television series

This is a terrible idea. I'm having trouble finding the words to explain how much I think this idea is a miserable failure.

"Napoleon Dynamite" the animated television series premieres at 8:30 p.m. Jan. 15. It's based on the 2004 film "Napoleon Dynamite," and for some reason, the execs over at Fox thought that nearly EIGHT YEARS LATER it could be turned into a cartoon. (And for some reason, the original actors are back and all lending their voices [because they have nothing better to do?])

I love me some Napoleon Dynamite. I still quote it. I saw it in the theater a few times. I own it on DVD. I have a button that says Vote for Pedro. I'm training to be a cage fighter, and I've been chatting online with babes all day. But I will not watch this show.

The Wikipedia page for the show lists six episodes. I hope it doesn't make it past one.

Please, Fox, don't ruin this cult favorite.
