I know how you feel - the attitude of the tv companies is very confusing - basically they want long running series, with big story arcs, but they also want to be a ratings hit straight away - so basically they want the last season of a popular series straight away - which is never going to happen - and whenever ratings drop they can it.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other Snippets

Fox announced their schedule today.

We already know the Sarah Connor Chronicles was returning for Season 2, now confirmed as well are Bones (Season 4), Prison Break (Season 4), The Simpsons (Season 20) and 24 (Day 7). There will also be a two hour 24 special on Nov 23 to bridge the gap between Day 6 and Day 7.

There is also a new series called Fringe

Actually its quite good.
Yeah, I agree. I'm not gutted that it's been cancelled, but I am disappointed. Sophia Myles is still cute, though I think she's gained a bit of weight since her appearance in Underworld.

I never really managed to get into that. Ended up with a bunch of eps on my V+ waiting to be watched & me finding other things to watch/do instead, so I ended up just deleting them & cancelling the series link.

Just a suggestion, but you should check out TV.com, especially for American shows, as you can often find info about whether a show gets canned early before it gets shown over here.

Anybody got any idea when season 3 of Supernatural is going to resume over here?

I just watched the finale of the 3rd series of 'Bones' - which was totally weird - series 4 is going to be interesting trying to pick that back up ????

Indeed, I never suspect Zack - in fact it seemed a bit out of character to me.

Spoiler: 
Gotta agree, i really do wonder how this is going to pan out in Series 4... Simply can't wait for it to be on air, although obviously i have to. This is one of the (admittedly few) shows i really do enjoy watching as well. Thank god Booth isn't dead though, the show wouldn't be the same without him.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other Snippets

For those who follow the US showing of programmes, two shows return in July ;

Eureka (Season 3) returns on July 29th.
Stargate Atlantis (Season 5) returns on July 11th.

On a seperate note, there are rumours that there may be one or more Battlestar Galactica "made for tv" movies filmed later this year - but they wont be set after S4 ends but sometime in the S1 - S4 timeline..

Its not rumors, there is one already in production called 'Caprica' and will show the beginning of the Cylons. Cast has been confirmed for the story as well.

If the two hour movie does well then it may become a series

The rumoured TV movies Paul M mentioned are in addition to the spin-off series "Caprica".
