They just pulled Virtuality from Hulu so I'm optimistic.

Watch the numbers for Defying Gravity, since that's the probable model. Which is likely to be unfair, since Defying Gravity, looks like a soap opera with space opera window dressing, while Virtuality is "serious" sci fi by comparison, but TV is basically unfair so go figure...

Did they? I still haven't seen it as I figured it'd stay up for a while. Hopefully they're doing this because they have a solid chance at a series.

Re: news on virtuality

I hope there's something to this, because I'd like to see more of Virtuality - even a few more hours. As what passes for space-based science fiction on TV goes, it was pretty remarkable.

Not expecting much, but this is OK news I guess.

news on Ron Moore's "Virtuality"

Virtuality will be released on DVD on May 4. As of right now, we don't have any special features details or pricing details as of yet,
it seems that the film won't be released in Blu-ray either

Re: news on virtuality

...pursuing the idea of mounting a “Virtuality” series as an international co-production in the tradition of CBS' “Flashpoint,” ABC's “Impact” miniseries and ABC's fast-approaching spaceship drama “Defying Gravity.”
I missed this first time around. Not the most optimistic pedigree there, if we're hoping for something remotely worth watching.

A shame there won't be a Blu-Ray, but it's not surprising. Honestly, it's surprising this is being released in any format. I mean, it's not like SyFy's series Revolution, which never went to series and is probably sitting in an archive somewhere, unwatched.

Actually I saw somewhere that Revolution aired as a two-hour movie on Sky Premiere a satellite cable channel in the UK back around Christmas

Really? I completely missed that news. I wonder if SyFy will ever air it here?
