*Throws up arms* Ok, the BSG comment was uncalled for... I was just trying to get a rise out of people. Looked like it worked. Still stand by what I said however
Jim's right. I havent actually watched any of "Heroes" yet. For a good reason. Traditionally, with the noteable exceptions of the "Star Trek" franchise, "Buffy" etc, Sci Fi shows havent fared well on network television.
For instance, consider "Firefly". Great show, still got cancelled however. Or how about last years "Invasion", "Surface" and "Threshold", all cancelled? At this point, Im now of the opinion that Im not going to go anywhere near these new shows until theyre renewed.
The logic is skewed I admit. How is a show going to ever get renewed if nobody watches it? But then I can justify this by saying that I dont want to invest hours of my time in these shows, only to see them get cancelled.
If "Heroes" gets renewed for a second season I may pick it up. Similarly for "Jericho".
"The 4400" - yup, it lagged at the beginning of the third season but picked up towards the end. If it shows up on repeats, Id suggest watching it; season four looks like it will be pretty good.
