Cool. I wonder if they'll pick up any other sci-fi veterans?

Ben Browder, Connor Trineer, Christopher Judge, Claudia Black...there must be a couple dozen names I could come up with, of genre actors who need to get back on TV asap.

What the heck ever happened to Josh Holloway for instance? Terry O'Quinn's gonna need a new show the way his current one is going.

I would love to see any of those people in S.H.E.I.L.D.

What, people noticed I'm gone? I dumped cable so I'll see the whole season when Netflix gets it on streaming, they're pretty good about AMC shows, and I'm sure I'll have plenty to say then.

I'm trying to ignore spoilery headlines, but I did see something intriguing that makes we wonder


But don't blurt out the answer w/o spoiler code. I'll read it in a few months.
Question. Why don't you stream it from your computer/laptop on their website directly to your TV instead of waiting for Netflix?

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

I see the premiere ep on amctv.com, but are they really going to allow people to see all their episodes online? Seems like that would really screw up their relationships with cable and satellite providers (they just had a big fight with Dish), so I just assumed they wouldn't allow that. But if they do, I'll watch the whole series on my Roku if I can add AMC and my Mac if I can't.

I know the premier on AMC's website was a one time thing, but I don't know if it's available anywhere else next day.

So, bait & switch? I'm not interested in just watching the premiere and having to waaaait...I like having all the episodes available at once.

Yeah, I thought that was kind of cruel to the people who can't see it any more because of Dish Network, or was it Direct TV?

It was Dish, but I believe it's back on now.

Speaking of Dish, did everyone see this hilarious promo they did? You don't need to see The Walking Dead, we'll show some old monster movie and that's just as good!

To think I used to have DISH... for about 10 years. Glad I had to jump ship to Comcast because AT&T wouldn't upgrade their internet service.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

Well, I have no idea what the problem was between DISH and AMC, but it makes sense that they would offer their customers something to compensate. Any company would (hopefully) do something like that under similar circumstances This is a little lame, but they probably realize that; makes me feel a little sorry for them.

I tend not to feel sorry for corporations, even when they are doing something hilariously lame. Whichever VP or CEO's idea it was, they are being paid handsomely not to frak up ridiculously like that.
