"The Knights of Prosperity" is gone from ABC's schedule, but the comedy may not be dead yet. It hasn't been officially canceled, and according to Variety, some of ABC's higher-ups are fans, which might give it a shot at a second season. Plus, some fans are rallying around the show too. It was one of my favorite comedies this year, so I hope it gets more time to find an audience.
Nine episodes of "Knights" aired, some clips from the unaired episodes have turned up on YouTube. I chuckled at the one where Squatch sabotages a movie shoot with Ed Burns. But my hands-down favorite involves intern Louis Plunk making a movie trailer in an attempt to get a job at a production company. The fake movie, Higher Powers, stars Eugene Gurkin (Donal Logue) as an alcoholic superhero named Midnight Justice who has resorted to using his laser eyes to cook drugs in an alley when his friends stage an intervention. Come for the Mystery Men-style superheroes, stay for the spot-on movie trailer references. To watch the video,
