Probably has a lot to do with how easy it is to watch it, rewind, watch a bit again & then move on to the next with the series on DVD for the new fans, rather than watch, fast forward through commercials, and then wait a week for the next installment that the 'old' fans had to go through.
Wow...gotta say I was expecting more of a reaction to Severed Dreams than what we got here.
Seems us 'old' fans are more enthusiastic than the new.
Best episode of any scifi show EVER as far as I am concerned.
Yes, I agree. I have to say that the one week (or longer) wait times between episodes, while frustrating at the time, helped me build up my excitement for the show. For the few shows where I've been able to watch it at a faster clip, because of daily reruns or downloads or whatever, I think it tends to detract from my viewing experience somewhat, even though I get the instant gratification of getting to watch the next episode right away.
