That doesn't stop stations from dropping the show earlier to put something else in its place, but they are still under contract to pay for what they don't air.

These are spoiler images, so view at your own risk.

Thank you, I'm sure she'll be happy with them.

Last week I noticed a glitch, and presumed it was a local issue, but maybe it was due to a problem with the feed? I dunno but I like the fact that they repreat the new Sunday episodes on the following Saturday, so hopefully tonights broadcast will be flawless?

The feed was terminated at the first break, i.e., only the first segment was fed. And since it was refed, your station wouldn't have been able to air the feed that was terminated. It is possible to have a glitch locally.

If your station is doing it right, the Saturday airing is supposed to be the from the repeat feed the following Friday, as it will have a different commercial load (don't know how different as I never compare the two timing sheets).

Just to make sure, the feed I'm talking about is the HD feed. The SD version is sent via PathFire.

So this week's episode ("Walter") made no sense to me. Why in the heck did Raahl need to go through all that? He's had Walter, a Sister of the Dark, and a Mordsith for the last 6 months, couldn't he have just done the same thing he forced Richard and Co to do himself at any point?

And since when can Sisters of the Dark bring back souls into dead bodies? In the past episode where they did it didn't they have to use some elixir which they supposedly used the last of in that episode to bring back Richard, meaning there's none left?

Serious shark jumpage going on here.

Look out. The last time I complained about them making up new rules for each episode, I got a beat down.

Sure-it probably was a local broadcast / reception glitch in the HD airing.
In my local, new episodes air at 7PM sundays, and then repeat the following Saturday night at 10PM.

In the ambush scene with the Sisters of the Dark, a few of the "sisters" had very masculine looking arms. Since we can't see much of them I wonder if most, if not all, are actually men?

Fits perfectly within the way the show is fed (HD). The first feed is the primary, or newest episode, then after that is fed, the secondary episode, or repeat of previous week's primary, is fed.

In your station's situation, the 2nd feed is aired 1st and the 1st feed is aired 2nd

Image quality better than your local OTA image grabs?

If the SYFY Channel was smart, they would pick up the Seeker themselves and have it on before or after Merlin. Now that would be great and they would have another 5 star show to add to their lineup

Whether it would be smart, or not, would depend on how much Disney wants to charge NBCU for it.

Bah, sucks. It seems like every show I watch goes through threats of being canceled until it finally succumbs to it.

Why can't I just be some mindless lemming that loves singing, dancing, and procedural cop shows?

Guess we'll see if the rumors play out. Mike Sussman has not tweeted about it being canceled yet on his twitter account. Lets hope LOTS gets picked up by someone. If not, one can hope they would release both seasons on BD.........

You sound like me. About the only shows I still watch are Chuck, LotS, and Lost. Can't stand Idol, DWTS, or any of that other crap. With LotS looking like it's canceled and Lost gone, that just leaves Chuck for me.

Yep. I read that a few days ago. If it wasn't for my wife's love of reality television garbage I could happily close my DirecTV account.

I think it is probably off-target to put Chuck and LotS in the same category. LotS is all but dead. Its current source of funding is gone, the producers went looking for more, and all indications are that they definitively failed. By comparison, Chuck's source of funding is still musing its options, and all indications are that it is positively inclined, though not assured.

So ticked off. Show was doing good, and one of my favorites. I can't believe its being cancelled. This is ridiculous.
