In the second season, Carmen's pregnancy was apparently cut from the show. This was one of the plotlines Ryan Murphy said he would explore in season two, along with a romance between Harrison and Mary Cherry, and Siamese twins. The cut order was given by the WB just a week before this episode aired, forcing Ryan to re-write the episode and eliminate this story completely from the show. See more »
I love this show. I didn't get to see the second season of this and hope it is as good as the first season. I bought the first season the day that it was released. And still could not believe that it was released. This show is so funny in so many ways. Every character is funny in some way but "Mary Cherry" is the funniest yet she is so mean but so funny about. Since they took this show off the air which is so not cool. They should of done a spin-off with Mary Cherry and her mother "Cherry Cherry". I watched the 3 episodes with the commentary and creator Ryan Murphy said that they were thinking of doing it but guess never ended up doing it. My favorite episode of season 1 is "Caged" its is so awesome and hilarious.
Anyway they should do a reunion or come back and do season 3 if DVD sales are good. Thats what they did with "Family Guy". They cancelled it and brought it back because of the DVD sales. Anyway Popular is a show all on its own like no other teen school show ever and is brilliant. BRING IT BACK!
