    This is great news, but lets hope the episode is actually good, otherwise it'll be a Last of the Timelords-style 'clock watching'!

    Honestly, I question whether or not 65 minutes is going to be ENOUGH time. With all that looks to be thrown in between this 2-part finale, I hope there's ample room to make it all work without some major short-shriftage in effect and gigantic plot holes left behind... Neutral

    Now, how do we get SciFi to realize that the episode will need a 90 minute timeslot on their channel to be coherent. Charlie Jade has been killed, so there is no *new* programming in the 8PM slot to worry about. Start Journey's End at 8:30PM and 11PM, with Stargate at 10PM and 12:30AM.

    CBC needs to be convinced to give 90 minutes too, when they reach the end of the series.

    Time will tell. It always does, except when it has Laryngitis.

    Joan of Arcadia is tentatively scheduled for that 8 PM slot on August 1st on SciFi (US)

    Joan of Arcadia is on SciFi? I'm so happy I don't pay the extra money to get that channel.

    I'm going "Full Circle" and putting my avatar back to what it was when I first joined. :)

    oh, thank God! I don't think I could stomach trying to "get into" that show for another episode. They killed "The Dresden Files" for that crap? (sorry for the side rant)

    I don't think we have to worry about the Sci-Fi Channel. They have been good about airing the Christmas specials with little or no problem. They will probably repeat the previous episode and the go with the finale. (I HOPE! I HOPE! I HOPE!)


    Sci-Fi hasn't listed thier schedule for the day the finale airs yet, so maybe we'll be lucky!

    Charlie Jade was produced in 2004/2005 (Canadian world premiere 2005). The Dresden Files was produced in 2006/2007 (US world premiere 2007). Charlie Jade did not kill The Dresden Files, and vice versa.

    I think SciFi is looking for a program to anchor its Friday night lineup. I assume that they expect it to get a decent viewership to lead into its signature shows (SG:A & BSG). Doctor Who has done well in its Friday night slot, but we are going to be almost two years without a new series/season, so SciFi is most likely looking for another program that can get enough viewers to warrant a slot on Friday evenings to pair with Atlantis or Battlestar.

    V happy.

    I get the feeling that it was a standard length script but more was shot than was needed and a long edit just worked well.

    Oh, I know it didn't. It was really more of a rant against the minds behind programming at scifi. Let's create our own show, no lets scrap that and put on something else.

    I know the two don't really correlate, it just really feels that way sometimes!

    They cut scads out of VOTD,though - including Astrid asking the Doctor if she could come with him (thereby sealing her fate as sure as a red-shirted crewman on Star Trek TOS)!

    True they may cut out some bits but at least they are airing it. Remember we thought that were never going to air "Doctor Who" at all(for a while).
