I became a fan of the series during the 3rd season. I saw most of that season and all of the 4th. I had seen several episodes of the earlier seasons but not in order. I've finished season 1. Very good beginning.
I read they are working on new episodes for online. How can they afford that and SciFi can't.
You mean the webisodes announced last year? I think those were cancelled.
I think they were announced 3 years ago. I figured they were cancelled because the last I heard they couldn't get the funding. Kinda sucks, but since I bought the DVDs last year, I really ended up not caring all that much.
