    Masters Of Science Fiction - Problematic
    Wow, if this is true, it must be seriously bad if the president of the production company feels obliged to start making excuses for it before it's even aired..

      The episode that JMS originally wrote is one of the ones NOT being aired. This is the one that, when asked why The Futon Critic showed Sam Egan as the writer he posted:

      Upon reviewing the extensive revisions done up in Canada, which I
      didn't see until almost time to shoot, I felt that the end product did
      not reflect my work and deleted my credit. It's Egan's draft, and he
      should receive appropriate credit.
      Ouch.

        Yeah, I saw that after a search, Jan, but "Nightbird" is still going to be aired. That is, unless the series is 86'd before they even reach that episode.

        I'd like some elucidation on this supposed unevenness.

        Actually, removing one's credit from a show is not very uncommon. It happened a lot with ST. When a name couldn't be removed, a pseudonym was used.
        Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.

          I'm from Rahway, NJ and I'm still laughing at this. Thank you.

            My understanding was that they were only planning on airing four of the six episodes made and that 'Nightbird' wasn't among them. Of course something may have changed. I kind of lost interest after a year or nearly so passed after they were made and not shown.

              From what I'm reading, four are supposedly going to air and the rest are up in the air. But come on, I doubt even the first four are guaranteed to air. Whatever the case, the show will come out on DVD eventually. Or cable will pick it up.

              I am kind of excited about the show.
