  • If Eric Balfour is going to be on No Ordinary GFamily then the show has sealed its fate for cancellation. Balfour = failed shows.

    • Except that time he was on the first episodes of Buffy, which I definitely wouldn’t classify as a failed show.

      • He was also on Season 1 of Six Feet Under and that show didn’t fail. Oh, and 24. But that doesn’t mean I don’t HATE Eric Balfour. Just seeing him makes me want to punch someone.
