Anyone watch this? Or anyone that used to watch it still watching? It's the last season, hopefully things wrap up well.

Yesterday's episode really made me mad though. Why did they kill off Holly? And why in such a lame way? So mad!

No point in having Felicia Day stick around and suck down money that could be used to bring back Nathan Stark. They better kill Beverly by the end of the show or I'm going to be ****

I always thought it was called A Town Called Eureka, but apparently that's only here in the UK.

I used to watch it, sporadically. If there are episodes with Felicia Day then perhaps I need to pay more attention!

I used to follow it, but at somepoint I just stopped watching due to something else I wanted to watch more being on in the same time slot, so I got stuck watching sporadic reruns after that, and then I just sort of gave up after I couldn't make sense of it anymore due to having missed to much Smiley: lol

Except if it were baby photos, it would be like looking at before and afters of Michael Jackson. Only instead of turning into a white guy, he changes into a chick!

She has a prominent role in this season and the previous.

My issue with it (and frankly, an increasing number of shows on scifi, er syfy) is the sporadic scheduling. Call me old fashioned, but I like shows that have a solid mostly continuous season with a clearly defined end and a clearly defined beginning of the next season. I don't care when during the year that happens (that channel has long run its shows during downtimes on the broadcast networks in order to boost viewership and that's fine), but it seems like they'll run a new season for a few episodes, then take a month or two off, run a few more episodes, then another month off, then a few more, then sorta end, without any indication when they'll start up again.

There are a lot of shows I like to watch, but not so much that I'm going to go online and check up on them, but more and more often it seems like that's the only way you can know if/when a show is coming back on air. I have several times assumed due to the long break that Eureka was canceled, only to see new episodes show up at what appears to be a random time. Same thing with Sanctuary. Same thing with Warehouse 13. Basically all the SyFy shows are like this now, and it's kinda annoying.

I think it's made moreso because SyFy has such an "odd" set of shows that there's basically shows I like and watch and literally nothing else on that network that would cause me to ever turn it on. So my odds of picking up a commercial advertising about a show is very close to zero. Honestly, could they at least put science fiction shows on as the filler during off time periods? Crappy reality shows and sub-b-rated monster/disaster movies are not things I'm remotely interested in. They seriously couldn't get like re-runs of old star trek shows or something?

Same. If it weren't for my brother I'd never know when Haven, Warehouse 13 or Eureka were starting up, or what times they showed. I watched two episodes of Sanctuary when it first came out, then never tuned in to SciFi to figure out when it was supposed to be on.

I have a similar problem with FX series. There are a few I'd love to watch, like Archer and Wilfred (watched half the first season on Demand, the stopped...). But I hardly ever watch FX so I never remember when they are on.

Every single time I flip to SciFi there's a movie about the weather/meteor destroying us, so I'm wanting to just block the channel all together. Lack of motivation to actively do it has been the only thing keeping me from actually doing so. Chiller is what SciFi used to be, anyway.

Yup. Hence, the whole part about me thinking they were canceled until they show up (on my DVR). If I didn't have a DVR, there's no way in **** I'd catch that new episodes even existed, let alone when they are playing. It just seems like a poor business model IMO.

Tonight's episode was pretty heavy on the fan service. Not that I'm complaining, Allison in some skimpy lingerie, strutting her stuff. More naked Jo. I'm hoping the series gets wrapped up well.

They did give a possibility of getting Holly back. Apparently her consciousness is still inside the Matrix.
