Enterprise Moving, Gets New Lead-In

Enterprise is moving back an hour (into Jake 2.0’s timeslot) starting March 10th. Into it’s slot goes a CG-Animated sitcom Game Over about a video game family. Sounds like fun, except UPN’s putting ::shudder:: The Mullets in between. More info over at SciFi Wire.

    Changing time slots…
    The first step to getting canned? Most likely. I have lost interest in the show over the course of the break. This whole Zindi thing just isn’t enough to make it good. It’s too little, too late.

    Aw, Crap
    So it’s running against Angel and West Wing now? Forget it. I’ll have to
    hope that my TiVo will catch the rebroadcast.

      West Wing wins the slot for me. I guess that I will catch Enterprise on the Sunday rebroadcast. If they can start to write episodes of the quality equal of West Wing, then I will reconsider.

    The Mullets?!
    The Mullets?! Wow. That’s really understanding your fan-base.

    Maybe they can buy some of those great original movies from the Sci-Fi channel. You know the ones that are all exactly the same as each other, except the title and mutant animal changes. “It Crawls!”, “They Fly!”, “Buzzzz!”, “Bite!”, “Growl!”, “Slither!”, “Bugs!”, “Snakes!”. And usually starring ‘Eric Roberts’, ‘Steven Baldwin’, and/or ‘Tracy Lords’.

      But I like Tracy Lords

      I actually have a picture of my family with her. We met her at a Horror/Sci-Fi con. She was actually pretty cool.

    good for me
    I can’t watch it til 9p anyways…

    but I see this as a step toward cancellation.

    Obligatory; My Apologies
    Apologies to all of you, and to Chevy Chase: In other news, Firefly is still cancelled.

    Well..
    …I guess it’ll get TiVo’d on Wednesdays again then. Because right now I was catching the re-broadcast on Saturday because Smallville was winning that battle on Wednesday.

    The Andorian one wasn’t too bad last week, compared to the religious bombs the week before though good god.

    Why is it a ship is so easy to take over?? At least in TNG they locked out the computer and every was stuck there but noooo, we have the flagship of earth taken over in .03 seconds

    I’ll stop ranting now. But for a die hard trekkie watching this series is painful. My wife actually asked me if I was mad at her after watching the religious bombs because of the look on my face :(

    Bring back Firefly and Farscape dammit. This is done and I’m just watching a car wreck.

    UPN becoming like FOX?
    This sounds exactly like something FOX would do when they ‘dont like’ a show, first change the timeslot into something totally useless, they’ll probably drop all promotion for it whatsoever, and then pair it with shows that its target audience would find revolting. Now its ratings will drop to even more abysmally low levels, and the show will be cancelled, and nobody at UPN will be able to figure out why.

    Heard this before? I think so. Futurama anyone?

      But unlike Futurama, I don’t care. I’ve watched this show and it deserves to be cancelled. Futurama was a great show that died years before it’s time. I’ve seen all the Futurama episodes and I would love to see new episodes. Enterprise has new episodes all the time and I could care less.

        the funny part is that I thought last week’s enterprise was Best Episode Ever (of Enterprise, at least…)

          I don’t know about best ever, but it was right up there.

        Every Trek series takes a season or three to get its bearings. Most will agree that the first few seasons of TNG, DS9 or Voyager werent up to the same standard as the rest of the series. Once everything starts to flow it gets better.

    That is so stupid.

    Anything would be better in that half hour.

    Maybe they could take the unaired episodes of Jake and cut them in half with a "To be continued" at the end.

    Or they could get the rights to the old crummy Filmation Trek cartoons and run them. What do you run between a cartoon and a Star Trek show? A cartoon Star Trek show, of course. If there’s enough of an audience, they can make some new episodes, using the voices of the original actors, in the same cheesy retro style. UPN is Viacom, so they could use the same low-grade animation studios that make the Spike cartoons.

      Network Scheduling
      I don’t understand why these idiots don’t try moving a show to a new night instead of just cancelling it. They already paid for these shows. Isn’t it worth it to show them? Cable networks are beating networks by airing unaired episodes of cancelled shows.

    Game Over actually looks interesting. Check out the site.
