    Look, go tell these guys, please. Maybe they'll listen. 'Kay?

    well sarcasm on the internet doesn't always come across but for the facts 26 years in which there was at least 1 new doctor who episode broadcast with the total of original eps(not reruns) being over 700, the number of stories is somewhere in the 200s due to the multipart nature of doctor who with stories being anywhere from 1 episode to i think 10 was the highest (the war games with troughton) but one of the dalek stories might have been longer. but since its based on episodes not stories dw wins hands down

    while the show did take an occasional hiatus there was not a single year in which a new Doctor Who was not broadcast from 63 to 89, and while i don't have the exact number to tap it was over 700 broadcast eps in that time period

    oh and i mistyped it was 26 years

    FWIW to those who insist, Doctor Who is listed as the longest running sci-fi show by Guiness. So, there, everybody be happy.

    Doctor Who took a holiday at the end of the Cold War when the Berlin Wall was knocked down. It has returned to fight the War on Terror.

It was only after Season 4's numbers were underwhelming and a bunch of internal bickering at SciFi that even I can't trace that the fifth season cancelled, and rather absurdly and underhandedly at that. That's what I meant there.

    The miniseries was pretty much the entire Farscape Season 5 Plan compressed down from twenty-two hours to four.
    Which the mini was brilliant. I thought it was one of the better pieces of sci-fi out there.

    Actually new episodes can be done but SCIFI owns the broadcast rights(SG-1 franchise) in USA. It is possible to do episodes outside USA and broadcast them too by another network in another country. But like i said in USA it's not possible because SCIFI doesn't want to do season 11. I have read somewhere that SCIFI did not want to pay MGM same mount of money for season 11 and MGM did not accept lower pile of money so SCIFI cancelled the show.

    But 2 DVD's are coming in future and maybe new spinoff series after that.

    no to the topic, i'm actully very happy to hear that season 10 will end on a cliffhanger, it gives (minor) chance to a season 11 since mgm has been shopping for other outlets and networks for the show, or maybe sci-fi will get its thumb out, i feel that we could get another 20 or so really high quality eps that also wrap up the many many internal threads.

    I was reading today that Stargate SG1 has made it into the Guinness Book of Records...
    The series is featured in the new 2007 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records, under the 'TV Personalities' section. The show is honored as the 'Longest Consecutive Running Sci Fi TV Show'.
    Is there something I'm missing, or is there a reason why Doctor Who isn't named as the longest?

    i would have loved to get the full 5 season of farscape, with the compression for tpkw it screwed with continuity, but since it was obvious hat there was no choice i do not complain, however i really would like to see soemhting like b5:tlt for farscape and maybe for sg-1

    like haley(the smart chick who sam hated) could end up on atlantis working with mckay, the jaffa could have a real unified presence, earth could actull show a real offworld colony not just a military base

    etc
    etc
    etc
    but to be fair while i do really enjoy the ori storyline 10 seasons is an amazing run for anything these days, wit this current 6th season of smallville they are really moving up to a point that will either end the show or turn into "superman, the first years" as in fully in the persona of Supes and not clark but that would appear to be a diffrent thread topic i think

    Eh, Farscape Season 5 was a death-by-shotgun-driveby kind of experience. The word that the show was cancelled was recieved less than a week before the finale aired, let alone written and produced. It made the wrap movie more of a requirement that the producers had to fight for to have any kind of closure.
    When it first aired i too didn't like the 4th season (it had only 4 seasons not 5), but about a year ago i saw it again and its pretty damn good!

    I may be wrong, since I don't follow the 'Gates terribly closely but I thought I'd read that they got the news with only 10 episodes left to be *shown*, I don't know how many left to be filmed. As you may recall, they'd already wrapped up all the story lines once, only to end up with new seasons. So which policy is better, to go episodic every season or to hope that the new storylines would foster renewal?

    Haha..this was my thread from a month ago and i just left it hanging. Just noticed it.

    Anyway, Stargate is *extremely* episodic. They tend to only really further the plots of things in their mid-season two parter, and the season finale/premire. I like it, it's much in the vein of TNG, which is something we don't see anymore. Granted, it's more storyline oriented in season 9-10, but you can still just pick it up for the most part anywhere. No news on the stargate front since this deal. I hope they get picked up for 11, though it's not lookin like it.

    I just started watching Atlantis. It's very good, star trek like. I like how they even make fun of the fact that Shepherd is like Kirk.
