I agree with you IF that is what the entire cast of PP wants to do.
But if Jarett + Joel and / OR Geoff wants to continue PP for themselves AS WELL as the fans, I think they should definitely attempt it. But if not, they should tell us out front and continue with their lives. Then I totally agree, Joel's doing great with SITMOS and I'm glad Geoff got the rights to direct his own new show.
The problem here is, Geoff is making it sound as though he wants to continue and yet makes it look as though he doesn't. Jarett obviously really does want to continue the show and so does Joel. This makes me think that if they want to, they should- at what ever cost necessary. You can have Jeremy without the entire cast of characters. You can even have Jeremy + Doug without the entire cast of characters. It's still really entertaining (imo). So long as it doesn't feel like a show manufactured by TV Executives (see PPTV) there's an amazing amount of entertainment to come out of Jeremy even with only a few lines of words. It's his attitude that draws me to the show, not so much the rest of the content (BUT the rest of the content is definitely a huge plus to the show and makes it much more complete... but a solo or duo vlog COULD work is what I'm saying).
Pretty sure Geoff specifically mentioned in his post he had other works of drama he wanted to attempt to create. And the gist of what I got from Jarett was just that he wants to give PP a final send off. Either way, I doubt either of them as artists wants to continue with PP for the rest of their lives. It will end eventually even if they do decide to continue it.\
Edit: I found the part from Geoff's post I was talking about:
What are you up to now, any projects or goals of your own?
Yeah, I'm up to tonsofawesomeshit, some projects are geared towards TV and others are to be released online. Since there are only so many shows one can do where a guy with a camera films his buddy guerrilla style in his apartment, walking on the street and in restaurants (without asking permission) the new projects I'm working on will actually require funding. Imagine starting a new show and being able to build sets!
Getting funding means there is a lot of development/pitch paperwork required to get it off the ground. Things also move a lot slower with this process, compared to calling up Jarett to tell him there's a bunch of people protesting China on the street... and you're shooting 20 minutes later.
I am equally excited about each of the projects I have in development, one of which will be green-lit (or rejected) in mid June. I can't discuss the details of anything I'm working on, but I can say they are all comedies.
Seems pretty clear to me he's ready to try bigger and better things.
