I was watching The Venture Brothers last Sunday and right before the show started, they said this would mark the end of the season. What the hell??!! They couldn't have aired more than, say, six episodes! This is the same crap that the Sci-Fi Channel has been pulling with their big shows, like Battlestar Galactica and Dr. Who. I do not like this choice of scheduling at all. Right when I am getting into the stories & characters, they end the "season". Does anyone know the rationale behind this very irritating habit? I have been getting closer to canceling my cable service for other reasons and this screwed-up scheduling crap is making that decision even easier (the History Channel, TCM and some shows on SpikeTV and Comedy Central are the only other channels I regularly watch). I actually didn't even finish the Venture Brothers episode because I feel like I am being manipulated in some way. Maybe that sounds childish but so be it. After doing so, I decided I would just wait & buy the COMPLETE SEASON in boxset form - which I had planned on long ago - instead of dealing with this crap. Then I relaized that might be their plan i.e. buy the boxset instead of watching it on TV. Any thoughts on that?
