I was a little nervous in the middle, not for what they were doing but for where I feared it was going (big messy pile of plots all getting in each other's way). But it didn't go there. Not that kind of show, I guess, which is why I was only a little nervous.

Ratings appear to be solid...a bit up and down...and, according to this link, they're planning for S4 on Showcase with SyFy likely to follow suit.

But also according to that link, they haven't made a decision yet. The plans are in case it's renewed.

Knock on wood!

It's really the best show currently in this genre. And maybe the best in a while. I'm nervous when a show this good hasn't been renewed by the end of its season, especially when the ratings had a decent size drop from the previous one.

The show does seem to do an interesting job creating a new focus every season, and it certainly seems that every season we're going to get more information on the battle for the continuum. I'm just nervous about a 7 - 10 year plan in a world where shows get canceled with no warning. If they can't make it all 7 - 10 years, I hope at least they can do something like what they did with Warehouse 13. Announce the show is ending and do a mini-series style wrap up.

It will be 6 episodes and will be the final season.

Interesting date to start a season of a show which a terrorist group is the main antagonist. IMO.

...and an 11pm start time. Weird?

Probably didn't shoot a lot of new content for this six episode run.
Meaning, will we be seeing much regurgitating of scenes/re-telling/recaps/catchups??
Hope not.

But it has been a good run..

Considering how they left off last season with some futuristic super soldiers coming from a parallel future I think if the six episodes they have to square away the series and its plots were mostly reused scenes it would be most insulting to the fans. They have six episodes to fix the mess they're in, and restore some balance to the future so isn't a total pile of poo which it currently is.

I wonder if they'll reuse the time travel device Kiera used at the start of last season when she is imprisoned by the Freelancers.

I guess I need to go back and rewatch the last episode. I don't remember much about it.

Just a feeling. I've noticed as "shows" age and become expensive there are different production tricks to reduce costs.

I think the producers will hold back a concluding episode at the end of one season and re-introduce it as the first episode of a new season (NCIS comes to mind).

I think they keep costs down (usually in a "show's" expensive 8th season)by
disappearing an actor. "X" is off "on assignment" "visiting a relative" maybe "on vacation" etc. No payment that week (just like in the NFL).

RECAPS that go on forever. I especially love the ones that go over familiar territory that just happened 10 mins. ago. Attention Deficit Syndrome anyone?
I guess a rehash of what happen ten minutes ago is necessary these days after observing the way kids watch tv with their faces in their applePhones twitting on facebook,
occasionally looking up to catch the action of the television program.
The Catch-up Episode: The ones that stitch together old clips, villains, retelling the same old storyline that faithful fans already are bored by. Yes done smartly sometimes
I like them: refresh my memory.
[ The best recap IMO was the BtVS finale: The opening minute homage to every episode of the series speeding-by in lightning bolt flashes. ]

I'm betting that a lot of this season had already been flushed-out, been written and possibly filmed last season; and along with out-takes, long shots,
clips will help to conclude the season.

I appreciate that the creators have fought to get the final episodes made/broadcasted. It has been one of my favorite shows and needs a worthy conclusion.

Unlike a lot of (internet posting) fans, I really liked the direction of the third season.

The question for me now is whether to wait to record onto TiVo the final episodes from SyFy or use "Magic". Still debating that one since there will only be a one week delay in not using "Magic".
However, "Magic" will be quite beneficial in regards to the final season of Lost Girl.

I just don't see how that's possible with a show that has a story arc, cliff-hanger type season finales and an uncertain future. They've got 6 episodes to finish up. They weren't sure they were going to get anything. I seriously doubt they filmed anything given that situation. CSI is a poor example (continuity and story arc aren't as central)

Usually a season end cliffhanger is resolved in the first two episodes of the following season. And I'm guessing would have been already written along with the cliffhanger.

That leaves the remaining 5 or 6 to write for, which in lies the question: Do the writers have enough story to fully fill out how they are to finish Cameron's storyline?

Flushed out? Where was the season hiding?

Over all a good episode, but I thought the acting was way off, from the first 3 seasons. The dialog, I thought was very casual and who cares!!!
