Was It Something I Said?

I admit I was pretty rough on the first Gate/Seinfeld video. In fact, I thought Bill was way funnier than Jerry. I hope the ad whizzes at Microsoft didn't take too much of that to heart and that critics like me aren't the reason there will be no more episodes of the Bill-and-Jerry show.

That's right: After three installments, Microsoft is shelving the Jerry commercials in favor of a new batch starring a guy that looks like the PC guy from the Apple commercials.

I'm actually pretty bummed. The second and third installments were darn good, and way different from your average TV fare (with four kids, I know a lot about average TV fare). Just as there have been petitions to bring XP, how about one to bring back Jerry?
