    Apparently O5 did the biggest numbers ever for a Showtime SciFi program. Unfortunately, the Powers that Be want to cut down to 1 Sci-Fi show, and I guess the promise of Sean Astin tipped the scales in jeremiah's way
    The light is that Sony is very interested in having SciFi channel continue the show, so they may cut them a sweetheart deal to keep the show going and milk the foreign markets. Let's not forget we still have 6 unaired eps

    Well, I still think Farscape is worth saving more than Firefly, and Firely more than O5.

    That said, I'll root for any of these shows to continue. Hopefully O5 gets picked up.

    A shame that a Sci-Fi pickup would surely mean getting the likely syndication-prepped 'PG' versions of scenes with bad language and nudity. Either that or pure censorship. And likely at least a couple of minutes trimmed for commercials...didn't O5 episodes vary from around 45 minutes to an hour (sort of like how ep length varies for The Sopranos)...
