    It was easy to get hooked on the X-Files.

    I never got into X-Files. I was so angry at Fox for dropping Sightings that I couldn’t watch it.

    Then there’s my son’s best buddy who got him hooked on “Buffy”.

    I loved the X-Files; I was an uber-fan back in the days of listserv discussion boards. Betty, if you let him just watch Seasons 1-3, he’ll be fine. . . after that, it jumped the shark.

    From what I’ve heard, Dark Angel simply got too expensive to produce. Great show, though. Shame they couldn’t keep the costs under control.

    I don’t even remember Sightings; but I was never into The X-Files anyway. There was, however, the one office Christmas party where I found and produced a trippy X-Files parody that had Scully and Mulder tracking down Santa Claus.

    Since I never watched Fringe, how do you assess that Fox did right by that series? And yes, the question is designed to elicit information instead of vitriol; I really don’t know.

    I do know that for the last few weeks Science Channel has been pushing the hell out of Fringe coming there, saying the show is to be “reborn” on Science; but I don’t see how, as I presume it’s out of production. Reruns != reborn. Yet another instance of function drift, similar to where the Sci-Fi Channel jumped the shark before it morphed into “Syfy” (where jumping sharks is now part of the job description: Pro wrasslin’ as science fiction!?).

    But about the worst screw job I ever saw on a series was Star Trek: Enterprise. Not handled well at all by UPN; and had the worst ultimate episode ever. It played more like a bizarre ep of ST:TNG, a problem very well documented at the time.

    The most important thing any network can do, for any serialized drama is: Finish Telling The Story!

    Despite low ratings in the last year or so, Fox committed to a proper wrap-up of “Fringe”. This is the final (half) season.

    If the series is just dropped, before reaching a satisfactory conclusion — that’s a huge betrayal of all the loyal viewers. Finishing the story enables the network to sell reruns, or boxed DVD gift sets.

    The O Files are creepier.

    Sightings was a show with real people sharing their paranormal experiences. It’s the first place I ever heard of the Men in Black. They are nothing like Tommy Lee Jones.
    It may not be real, but I take interest in the paranormal. UFOs, ghosts, cryptozoology…..

    I felt like the last season of Enterprise went outside the timeline of the series. Things happened that shouldn’t have at that point. They should have kept it all “before Kirk”.

    …. and the Buffmiester is still in running in repeats.
    .
    I get strange looks from some when people find out I have all seven seasons of Buffy. They think it was all about vampires and demons. Little do they know its about the new girl at school and growing up.
    .
    don’t tell your son the 8th season is a graphic novel.
