They just didn't get it

A quick note on the end of "Siskel & Ebert"/"Ebert & Roeper." As Roger Ebert noted yesterday on his Web site, "After 33 years on the air, 23 of them with Disney, the studio has decided to take the program named 'Siskel & Ebert' and then 'Ebert & Roeper' in a new direction. I will no longer be associated with it."

I still haven't forgiven them (from 1989!) for trashing one of the greatest bad films ever (partially) shot in NYC.

I wholeheartedly agree. WAB Part Deux was the bad one. The original's a classic. I feel that McCarthy captured the essence of the the late 80s archtypical urban experience (as applied to weekedn fun with one's boss' cadaver).
