It seems (from similar changes at Marvel) that they're rotating the teams to
keep them from burning out, and to get a fresh look, ala' the long run John
Byrne had on Superman, Batman, and Marvel's X-Men and Avengers.  A different
look can do wonders, and saves the pencillers and inkers and writers from the
loony bin.

Harlan's been that way before all of us made our collective debut. I find his
general behavior amusing (looking at a child, I suppose), but he makes some good
points, especially if you've read "The Glass Teat" and "The Other Glass Teat".
Hmmmm, now there's an idea:  A B-5 version of TGT.  I wonder how long that would
last...

Mostly because SQ is postulating that even though we might actually get a world
gov't that everyone accepts, it can't control everything, ie. the outlaw
whalers, that sleazeball general and his buddy that put Brody's mom on ice, etc.
Sorta like the US and its problems with its various agencies.

More likely they don't want to kill NBC's chances of having a time slot of its
own.....Sorry, lost my mind for a second. :)

Perhaps, but that "hole" was half SeaQuest's beam across.  You might be right,
but SQ's going to need one hell of a rebuild...just similar enough to when they
scuttled SQ #1 to get your attention.
Kinda makes you wonder how they'll permanently kill her.  Overload the reastors
and set off the nukes?  No, that's been done THIS season...or will be in the
next's finale.

Syndication?  Not likely, as it has to run for 3 years (I think) before any show
can be syndicated.
Before you mention it, ST:TNG _was_ released in syndication, but that was after
20 years of re-runs, which were in syndication, and Roddenberry's reputation,
which was still solid after the aforementioned 20 yrs.

Earth 2 is CANCELLED.  Didn't like that decsion at all.  Now Sliders has been
cancelled!  Two series with great promis have been zapped while SeaQuest DSV
has been retained.  Evil demons just might exist based on the facts above.

Hey, by the way, do letters from fans make ANY DIFFERENCE AT ALL at this point
in time???  I'd be interested in input from ANYONE on this.

I wonder if Babylon 5, ST Voyager, ST Deep Space 9 and X-Files will now be
cancelled too so the networks can bring back "Lost in Space:  The 90's
edition":  AAARRRRGhhhhhhhh!!!

Is there any GOOD NEWS out there???

 Doesn't 'directorial trademark' means it's included in all the movies
 from that director, though? How in the big wide world is he gonna
 put that line in all the movies???? I mean, the numbers, okay. 'See
 you next Wednesday', harder, but it'll work. "K. B. N." -?!? Or
 does he have the robot as a directorial trademark, too?

I'm not saying that Robyn was wrong.  I said that B5 *WAS* an investment of
time and that is what I like about it.  The plotlines *WILL* end neatly at the
end of the series, I assume, but you do have to spend some time thinking about
the show.  That is one of it's best qualities.

You said at the end that "unfortunately, B5 is not like Star Trek".  There is
nothing unfortunate about it.  It is not supposed to be like Star Trek, and if
it was, I certainly wouldn't watch it.
