WTF happened here? I'll admit GFL was a favorite guilty pleasure of mine, as I'm a big Kevin Corrigan fan and also like Donal Logue. But Fridays 5th season premier was a disaster. They decided to stop shooting in front of a studio audience and WAAAY over-used the canned laughter which was bad enough. But it appears as if they've pulled the sitcom killing stunt of not bringing back one of the child actors. Jake Burbage who played the youngest child Henry (and was damn funny in his own right) is nowhere to be seen. Not a mention of him anywhere and he's been edited out of the opening. They didn't get a replacement, didn't write him out, just *poof*. It's very odd especially how the plot line in this show is a continuous one. Also the writing was just plain bad, not nearly as funny as it once was. The WB really dropped the ball on this one.
