    WTF?
    This show gets better ratings than Firefly??? This stale, bionic man wannabe, complete with annoying “I’m using my powers now” sound effects has captured a bigger slice of the population’s ritalin riddled attention span than Firefly???

    Right, time to start a new colony on another planet….

      It’s easier for the LCDs of the world to grasp than Firefly. At least it’s better than Andromeda, and it does give me something to watch between Enterprise and Angel.

      Still… I think I’d rather have Firefly too.

          I love Firefly too, but this is actually turning out to be a good show. Mostly action, but they are slowly developing Jake, e.g. the discipline issue (though it could have been handled a lot better, I think).

          Andromeda is a lot better this season too, and I’m actually starting to look forward to seeing it again. And Enterprise! Who woulda thought it could turn around? The Wild West episode was actually really good and plausible!

      Are you really suprised? This is the same populace who watches Survivor and Will and Grace.

      Not necessarily. It just does a better job of meeting the
      demands of its home network than Firefly did. (ie. it gets the
      ratings UPN hoped for on a Wednesday night, while Firefly was
      slightly below Fox’s demands in its randomly pre-empted and
      often out-of-order Friday night timeslot.) Firefly had higher
      ratings than Angel or Buffy on several weeks.

        I think you just rekindled my burning hatred for FOX.
