People are trying to get SKIFFY to pick up SCC? Isn't that sort of like asking Lucifer to babysit, when your teenage babysitter flakes?

(a) not gonna happen
(b) even if it did, the show would get destroyed by budget cuts and incredibly STUPID programming, network interference, and hiatus decisions. DO NOT WANT.

Petitiion WB for a t.v. movie to sell to SciFi, I can see that as a possibility. But having Skiffy pick up the series, come on.

You mean like when Fox had it? :P

Now, t.v. movies would be excellent, no matter who showed them. Or direct to DVD...

HA! Three words: HIATUS FROM HELL

From what I've been hearing, it's not going to come back even on a different network, no matter what the fans do - apparently Summer Glau signed on with a movie pretty much the instant she heard the show was canceled.

(The above is hearsay, but I do know that she was offered a part she really wanted to take, and had to wait to see the status of TSCC first before she could accept.)

Yeah, I'd also heard that Josh Friedman said that he wasn't planning on even asking WB to shop it anywhere.

yeah, it's so rare for a show to move networks/channels anyway. But there's a hundred extra reasons why it's not gonna happen to SCC.

But they did such wonders with Sliders!

Oh wait. Fox gave them a nice start running it into the ground and Scifi drew out the process over 3 or 4 years.

*snerk*

EXHIBIT A of why this is a BAD IDEA.

But I suspect SciFi taking over other channels' trash is over in any case.

lol! Yes, better analogy there!

Not gonna happen. A movie to wrap up the cliffhanger is something I could see happening with enough fan demand. In a few years.

And if T4 does well, they might want a SCC movie to keep the franchise alive in the off years. So corporately they might go for it.

Though my husband thinks they'll do a reboot t.v. series in a couple of years, as Warners tries to milk their franchise. But in any case, this particular version is dead. :(

ANALOGY WIN!

They'll probably go the Farscape route and do a miniseries if the fans harp about it enough. -crosses fingers-
