    I've just been all over Showtimes site and still cannot figure out when they are broadcasting new episodes of O5. I thought it was supposed to be late December, but it no longer looks like that's the case.

    Anyone know?

    Thanks,
    Ric

    The show has been given Das Boot. I frankly don't ever expect them to air. I still have hope for a UK box set that has the 6 remaining eps

    Wow, I'm kind of surprised! I didn't think it was the greatest thing to come down the pike, but it was holding my interest and I somehow thought that Showtime was happy with it. It seems only about a month ago they were saying the end of December would bring new episodes.

    This obviously doesn't hurt as much as Farscape and Firefly did... Still, I would have liked to see where they were going.

    Looks like Enterprise is gonna be just about the only Sci-fi game in town. Too bad the franchise is getting very tired.

    It is disappointing to see a premium cable show with an ongoing story arc not given a final conclusion.

    It's not like they have advertisers to complain about bad ratings. Sure, they are out to make a profit, but if they give shows like this a wrap-up, many of us are more likely to watch such shows on their channel in the future.

    I am cancelling Showtime. If they had at least ordered a few episodes to wrap up the storyline (assuming the producers were sympatico, which they usually would be), I would keep Showtime.
