Anybody else remember THE CHRONICLE? I always thought that had potential, although I'm not surprised that they didn't mention it since it didn't last very long.

And I'd completely forgotten about LEXX . . ..
I thought The Chronicle was a great show and I was a little irritated it didn't last longer...but I thought the same thing about Special Unit 2 on UPN also!

I like Face Off also. It is fascinating to me to watch the creative process. Also, for a reality show, the contestants often help each other out and though they do talk about each other, I haven't seen any attempts at sabotage. .
Very true. This last season, in particular, all of the contestants were very supportive of each other. (Okay, there was that one nutcase in the very first episode, but he stormed off in a huff and never came back . . . not even for the finale.)

And, yeah, HOT SET is fascinating, too, although I often disagaree with the judges . . ..

Browder can easily play 10 years younger than he actually is. In Stargate, I believe the actor that played Mitchell's Dad was actually younger than Browder.
IMDB says Ian Robinson, who played Frank Mitchell, was 2 1/2 years younger than Browder.

Still, I saw Browder at a convention last year (November 2011), and he was starting to look his age. I haven't seen his Chuck or Doctor Who episodes, though, so maybe that doesn't come off on screen.

Oh, I disagree with them too and sometimes with the judges on Face Off too. One contestant completely missed the concept and they eliminated someone else. I didn't understand that. Oh well, it's still entertaining.

Enjoyed the show, but thought the frenetic crazy miniseries really wrapped the show incredibly well.

the story kind of feels "finished" to me. If they did it, and got the actors back, I'd of course watch, but I don't feel that it was a Firefly situation where a grave injustice was done (anymore).

I remember enjoying The Chronicle, and I absolutely loved SU2. I probably would own it if had ever come out on DVD.
