I'll watch... But with low expectations.

This show has been going downhill since the end of the first 'series'. While series 2 was decent, I think the seeds of the shows decline can be seen in the series one finale. It all started with the changed history. And the of course series 3 threw out all semblance of logic.

So I have to agree with others - Give me a anomaly that takes me to a place where the season 1 cast goes on. And where the plot takes a very different turn. The show seemed to be on the cusp of revealing some grand strategy behind the anomalies (perhaps created by someone/something), but instead they made them all random and more common than rain on a cloudy day.
Same here. It started out great but ever since that reset button (which turned one of the greatest characters into the most annoying one) the whole thing has turned into the usual cookie cutter stuff.
I'll probably watch it but since the newer episodes are full with stuff even Doctor Who couldn't pull off with a straight face I'm not exactly thrilled.

This show is going downhill a bit like Sliders did. A pity.

I hope that's true, because in the case of Sliders, season 3 was its worst by far and it rebounded in season 4.

The character's name is Jenny, Lucy is the actress' name. And she is returning, as indicated in the part of the article I quoted in my previous post.

He is referring to the *1st season* character.

Then why did he do the double name with the slash, if he only meant 'Claudia'?

The Lucy Brown character named Claudia as opposed to the Lucy Brown character named Jenny. Lucy/Claudia as opposed to Lucy/Jenny. It's an unusual usage, but a comprehensible one.

As long as the main cast, including Flemyng, is coming back, I'm down with that.

Damn, what the hell happened to Hannah Spearritt? She was smoking hot in the previous seasons; but that picture makes her look like a used-up biker-stop floozy.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman
