Does Anyone Remember G vs. E (aka Good versus Evil)?

To me, though, once it left USA for Sci-Fi (and dropped the G vs E for the less interesting "Good vs. Evil") it seemed to lose a lot of the quirky appeal that drew me to it
Two episodes I watched the other day(when it first switched titles to "Good Vs. Evil)were definitely more serious and less quirky. But the last one I saw(with "Cougar Pines", the urban black golfer) was old school G Vs. E. and hilarious. With one of my favorite quotes:

Which "crap" did you mean? Not being willing to go along with letting these threads be one-sided and unadulterated "love-ins" for the tv-show, movie, or Hollywood personality under current discussion? Well, too bad if you don't like it. An "open forum" is just that. It is not, and cannot by definition be, restricted only to the "appreciators" of the topic at hand. I address what I see as the weaknesses---as well as strengths, where I find them---of any given programming or individual under discussion and will continue to do so. If you do not understand the concept of the open forum, you're the one who needs to "move along", pure and simple.

I agree. That poster is in error as this thread was started for people who remember the show, not loved it.

. . . this show was one in a long list of "genre" shows that has "CANCELLED" written all over it at first sight. I sure could see it.
That shouldn't necessarily be taken to mean I was saying it was a bad show. I thought---or came to think---it was mostly mediocre and tedious, but that's beside the point (and, in any event, something one couldn't know about it on a regular weekly basis "at first sight"). I meant by what I said originally that I could see from one episode that the program wouldn't have any long-term wide appeal and therefore would meet with an early (if not premature) cancellation. I would have said this about it even if I had found it to be a great show. And that applies to a number of "genre" shows I've seen, including Special Unit 2, which I liked very much. A little voice inside my head goes off and says: "This ain't gonna last long!" Nine times out of ten, it's been right.
