    Positioning. It's still about ratings and capturing eyeballs, even in a cord-cut world.

    By the way, the actress who pays Julie Mao had a fairly long arc on SHIELD. I thought she looked familiar under all that blue.

    I re-binged watch season 1 before watching season 2. Much easier to follow. I will probably have to binge watch seasons 1 and 2 prior to season 3...LOL.

    If only they'd tell us when season 3 will air or give us a new trailer. Grrr. Aargh!

    I see season 2 in the Hulu interface but Tivo search does not find it. I watched the season trailer. I will tentatively watch all of season 2 once I finish season 5 of Stargate Atlantis - I watch entire seasons while in the exercise bike in the mornings.

    I've recently streamed a couple of season 1 episodes from amazon prime. The "HD" version (they have two versions in order to confuse you) looks really good on my LG OLED. It will be interesting to compare the picture quality on the comcast squished broadcast version. Might be just the right amount of time to watch seasons 1 and 2 before April 11.

    Just finished seasons 1 & 2 and i love this show. At this point it's one of my favorites ever. I think partly because it hasn't gone of the rails yet like most shows do.

    Now I need to find something else to watch.

    If you're a reader, try the books. They're awesome, and the story has only just begun on TV. :up:

    Alcon announced they're shopping the show, which is better than a straight cancellation announcement. We're not half-way through season 3- still plenty of time.

    I expect it to land somewhere. From the articles, it sounds like SyFy dropping it has more to do with the limited rights that they have, rather than the viewership of the show overall. I'm sure a good chunk of the show's viewers (myself included) are streaming it when it hits Amazon Prime, or possibly even buying the season that way. SyFy sees nothing from that.

    I'd love to know the number of people who have bought seasons of the show on Amazon; I wonder if it would wind up being an overall $ negative if Amazon were to pick up exclusive rights to it.

    I stream it from SyFy itself. Isn't that good enough for them!?! And given how annoying the commercials are (it makes you watch all of them EVEN if you're only trying to watch the last few minutes of the show because the stream locked up) they owe me more episodes! Dag nab it.

    We bought the first two seasons on Amazon because during that time we didn't get SyFy with our cable package. This season we have SyFy again so we watch it there.

    Just out of curiosity, I've always wondered...what is a sufficiently advanced troll indistinguishable from?

    Something I discovered by accident: Adblock Plus, the Firefox extension, is remarkably effective on SyFy streams. (Or was, as of last year.)

    "Any sufficiently advanced troll is indistinguishable from a genuine kook or the viewpoints of even the most extreme crank are indistinguishable from sufficiently advanced satire (Poe's law)." from wickerpedia Clarke's three laws - Wikipedia

    I once replied to a thread about something ridiculous (to me anyway) in a sarcastic manner that at least one person took as sincere and was surprised to think: holy cow this person actually believes that I (or anyone) could say or believe that to be true? At this point I realized that I was that troll.

    An example would be I could almost certainly go on a Flat Earth website and spew crazy funny things and be taken seriously by some people because let's face it when you're a two dimensional thinker anyone coming out of the third axis is using magic.
