If the show hadn't dragged so much in the beginning it might have lasted longer. I rarely gave up on shows but the first season or so was so boring and drawn out I had to call it quites. I picked it back up towards the end and it was definitely better but they should have started off stronger.

The following sales model doesn't exist but I'd pay $3 per episode or $20-30 per season for new episodes of SGU to be made available through iTunes or Netflix. As long as I get a digital version that I can watch whenever I want. Heck, the studio could even put 5min worth of commercials at the beginning and another break at the 30min mark to cover the remainder of the production costs.

Someday somebody's going to try financing a series on this model. Joss Whedon might be able to do it because he's got a rabid built-in fan base.

As long as you can find about 1,500,000 other like minded people to sign up for that, this economic model should work.

I believe Sanctuary was originally pitched as that sort of concept. Of course Itunes and Netflix were not in the state they are at now when the show got picked up by SciFi.

The Blu-ray will be released in Europe-UK on 7-4-11 (some irony there )

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...pf_rd_i=468294

I'm not 100% sure it'll be region locked but there's a good chance it will be.

No sign or any leaked info on a US release that I've found so far
A new Oppo player & region-free mod kit will solve the problem.

Yeah, I'm holding off my purchase hoping the UK release will be region free. If not I guess I'll have to suck it up and get the DVDs. I'm hoping if this and the Atlantis Blu-Ray box set sell well enough MGM might realize there is still interest in Stargate.

Or just ripping it to a BD ISO will remove the region restriction if you wish.
I always keep my regions intact when I rip them but none of the foriegn BD titles I have are restricted.

Primeval had an awfully abbreviated season this past year, didn't it? I can only remember a few episodes being broadcast on BBCA. Or else my DVR just didn't catch many. Seemed kind of strange at the time.

Wasn't all that short ... more than 6, less than 12 episodes ... typical UK style "season." OTOH, BBCA does tend to give DVR software fits. Trust but verify.

I missed the show, never watched it. Is it worthwhile, since BBC has episodes on sometimes? Or do you have to start at the beginning?

True but it was the first season back after the 2 year break. It just started a new season last Tuesday (5/24/11)I think so new episode tonight or so.

My DVR guide (TWC) doesn't list any 'Primeval' episodes at all, and BBA On Demand doesn't have any either. I know I only saw 2 or 3 of the new season's episodes and then it seemed to disappear. Admittedly, even the couple I saw indicates the show probably didn't deserve to go on after they killed off or otherwise eliminated most of the cast they began with. It's not really even a guilty pleasure anymore, which is why I'm not terribly bothered by missing the new eps.

^^Season 5 started last week in England. It won't air on BBCA until later this summer (I think-hope).
There were 7 episodes in season 4, shown by BBCA in January (s4 began in Jan). There will be 6 episodes in S5.

Dazed and confused over high tech.

Sigh...Concrap. The Internet Overlord Cometh
They're not com-tastic!

Season 4 had 7 epsodes and season 5 is supposed to have six. I forgot about Primeval. I hope season 5 shows up soon so I can get it from Amazon VOD(no BBCA-HD on FiOS so I need to rent it from Amazon for HD)

The BBCA site for Primeval doesn't even mention season 5.
