    If only but it did not help Atlantis any, besides, spaceships, time travel and technology, thats the last thing they actually seem to want on the SyFy channel these days. I do like Warehouse 13, Eureka and Haven but they just aren't quite the same.

    Yea, SyFy is shocking, its like waiting for a BBC series (the whole 6 eps a year thing) but without the assurance that it will actually happen.

    Both Eureka and W13 are out in the USA next month. So, they'll likely appear in the UK sometime near Christmas...

    Thought of another series I really enjoy Being Human (UK) is pretty ace but the end of series 3 will certainly change how series 4 plays out. The US version is okay but I dont like the casting as much except Bishop.
    Also Misfits is good too.

    if anyones read the books and watched the show. does it spoil anything from the other books?
    GoT has already got a second season, and they're sticking quite close to the books with 1 season/book (though there is speculation that Books 3 and 4 may be merged to form 2 seasons) so there's unlikely to be spoilers for the later books. Avoid pretty much anywhere discussing the show/books or you WILL be spoiled.

    Hope she's not too attached to The Gates (not watched it yet, but frankly amazed it stayed on air as long as it did).

    What are these adverts you speak of? That's what the fast-forward button is for, surely?

Has that been canned as well, if it has could go into deep depression. Looks like I'm stuck with Emergency Vets untill somehing else comes along.
    C'mon SGU was struggling from the start - it was a surprise it got a second season. W13 has been renewed and should start in the US in the next couple of months. There's a rumour that a steampunk W13 spin-off starring the lovely Jaime Murray as HG Wells is being developed.

    ...not for much longer. Not a good year for Ronald Moore - his "fairy tale cop precinct" show failed to get picked up for series, too.

    I know they count the viewers in the US market as the be-all-and-end-all, but do they not consider viewers in other countries? A lot of the US shows get 'fast tracked' here, so we are only a couple of weeks behind the US rather than a whole season like the UK.

    With the idea of Hulu coming to Australia as well, which will obviously bring a lot of the US shows direct to a new audience, surely they must consider these viewers too?

    Anyway, Is house cancelled or isnt it? Is Two and a Half Men definately cancelled or did they resolve the issue? Has The Event been renewed?

    Any other new shows to be aware of that I might not know about, esp any new UK shows?
    Heroes started well, but just kept repeating itself.

    As for audience, there have been times when direct production involvement has prolonged the life of a show that the US would have cancelled (I think the BBC put money into the last couple of seasons of Due South) and I believe Baywatch carried on as long as it did due to popularity abroad, but the Yanks only usually care about domestic viewers.

    Two and a Half Men has been put on hold and no final decision made, but as Charlie Sheen was sacked there is talk that it will continue without him.

    The Event hasn't finished airing season 1 yet, so a decision is unlikely to be made before it does.
    2 1/2 Men - let's just say that Charlie Sheen isn't very happy with Ashton Kutcher. The Event is cancelled (again, quite surprised it lasted as long as it did).

    Fringe has been renewed for another 22 episodes.

    If there was one show that shouldn't have got cancelled it was Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

    They should never have cancelled Prisoner Cell Block H.

    I gave up watching most new shows when everyone started calling them seasons instead of series. Someone on here even used the word franchise.

    I did get into a show called 'Smith' on ITV4 a few years ago that starred Ray Liotta. Watched about 4 episodes, then the following week it wasn't on. I had a quick google, and found out that it had been cancelled before ITV4 had started showing it. What is the point of showing it then? Why did you buy the rights to show it you morons?

    They probably bought it before it started broadcasting in the US and figured that they might as well try to recoup some of their money.

    A few years back the UK channels did a lot of pre-buying to make sure they got the hot new shows, but some of them got their fingers badly burnt.

    @LeMarchand: Not finding anything definate regarding V - I'm hoping its renewed considering the ending for Season 2.. Just informed the Mrs about The Gates and she's gutted - lol

    There does seem to be a trend to re-imagine a lot of the old shows - probably after the success of BSG..

    Wonder what other shows would be worth re-imagining?

    Yes, it looks like V is gone which makes sense, it was good. I also agree that the Terminator series should not have been canceled, it was way stronger than Dollhouse which lived another season. SGU only got two seasons because it was contracted for two at the start because they knew it would be an uphill battle, in the last seasion though they gave in and actually reverted to what made the originals good which made it ashame that it was canned in the end given the arc that it was finally taking.
