LOL. Personally I think that's a great idea... if only it was that simple eh?

No kidding. Obviously, we need to make sure SciFi knows that we're getting our eps early and they need to stop the mid-season break silliness because they're losing ratings.

Also, what is it with the silly cliffhangers? Do they think we won't come back if they go into the hiatus or the season end with a nice, resolved story arc?

Look who's talking! How many times have you left your readers with cliffhangers? Huh? :p

Well, yes, but that's as much to encourage me to write soon as it is to keep my readers hooked. And I don't do cliffhangers and leave you for months. More likely to do that with the nice, resolved story arcs. Cliffhangers, the resolution comes quickly 'cause I can't wait.

Well that's true I suppose, at least you don't make us wait months for resolution...

I never got why some american networks do that spilting in half thing... I mean by the time you guys got the final eps of SG-1 and SGA last year, we'd already seen them over here in the UK and we don't start showing them until september/october. *shakes head at random american networks and their silly notions*

Yeah. It seems to be mostly prevalent with a couple of cable networks, though-- SciFi and USA being the ones I have the most experience with. I think with SciFi part of it may be that it allows them to start the season earlier while still assuring that they manage to get everything in the can in post-production with plenty of time in case of problems with the F/X.

I also note that the network renews the contracts for SciFi shows during the hiatus, so I suppose it also allows them to go back and retcon a non-cliffhanger ending if a show isn't picked up.

But, for the most part, I just find it annoying.

I guess that makes sense, still irritating thou, I prefer getting it all in one go. Wudn't be so bad if maybe the hiatus was shorter even, like a month tops, still irritating but not as much. I guess they have their reasons thou, sweepstakes and all that... network politics *sigh*

The 7 yr old is a genius. Probably give Rodney a run for his money.

Well, having been sick for going on 3 days, his mind's pretty wasted at the moment, actually... ;>

Funny thing is, having been horribly scarred by walking into the living room just as the Rodney/Carson kiss scene ran in Duet, he's rather wary of SGA... ;> (Though he was equally horrified by the John/Teyla scene in Conversion, so it's kissing, not the participants, that's the squick.)

Maybe it's the force intent behind the kisses that throw him? Though most likely not, as he's seven. Ignore me. He's right on about the Canada thing though!

Nah. He's just at that age where kissing is "gross." He was totally mystified why anyone would find the Rodney/Carson kiss funny.

And, yes, totally logical about the Canada thing.

Oh, yeah. This kid shrugs off blood and loves explosions, but give him kissing and he's all "I'm outta here!"

Why didn't I think of that! *starts packing*

Wait, because I can't afford it and my hubby is in the military! *headslap*

*Patpats* Yes, unfortunately, those childlike and simple solutions always seem to evade us. *SIGH*
