It's correct and not correct. I have this rule that the only things I do, are
things I think will be fun. I did the Rangers pilot because I thought it would
be fun. Note, however, the word "pilot." That's how it was always discussed,
as a pilot for a series.

In that situation, you always hope it'll go forward, but you can't ever count
on that, because if you get your hopes up, you'll go insane. So you do it for
the fun of it, and you don't think about what comes after.

That was the substance of my comments at SDCC.
