    I thought this show was incredibly funny and original. The first episode made me laugh but didn't stand out in my mind. However by the 2nd I was hooked and it became my favorite show.

    I was disheartened when it was cancelled and excited when FX ran all the unused episodes. I read somewhere recently that a dvd release is not likely so does anyone know if FX has any intentions of airing the series again either weekly or as a marathon. I could kick myself for not taping it when it last ran and would most certainly do so this time.

    I thought Bravo or some similar channel was going to run some/all episodes as part of their "Best Shows You Never Watched" marathon.

    Trio ran a marathon of action last night and watched them all.
    What a great series! One of the funniest things I have ever seen on TV. If you ever get a chance check out the 8 or so episodes - A classic- hope it comes out on a DVD some day (but I wont hold my breath

    I agree. I never saw this when it aired but recorded all of the Trio episodes. Great show! I too would buy it on DVD. Can't wait to see all the Profit eps on 12/23.

    Great that they ran the remaining episodes that didn't get on Fox... just that they ran them out of order. I'll have to catch the next marathon to see if I can get all 13 episodes.

    The 1st time they ran the marathon they left (at least) 1 out.
    He dies at the end of one and then the next one he's a live again??
    Happen to catch the missing one today and it's one of the better ones.
    It's hard to believe FOX put it on in the 1st place, even harder to believe it was canceled.
    I told some friends about it but I guess TRIO is not on the DISH network.

    Actually, I figured out what they did. They ran them in Production order BUT the titles and descriptions were in Aired order. Took me a while to figure that one out. They did air all episodes.

    The ep where he dies was the last Aired episode. Guess they did that to tidy up the series. In the following Production episode he "make a remarkable recovery!"
