This truly deserves a:
BUT! Executive Director doesn't really mean the whole series is going to shit. It's not like that person does EVERYthing from writing to animating to designing etc. etc.
So really, don't flip the fuck out. If the series was being handed over to another company, then yes, THAT would be a legit reason to flip the fuck out, but here, we're just seeing a change of director, everyone else (script writers, animators, etc) are still staying the same.
And besides, with lots of people on the team on twitter and facebook and DA and such, it's easy for people to voice their opinion about what they want to see.
I'm really not giving any hope for Season 2 now. The show might end up jumping the shark just like any other show that used to be good. Remember what happened to Spongebob?
Apparently something ~7 episodes were complete or nearly complete at the time Faust left.
