I haven’t forgotten you, really. Just haven’t been inspired lately, and Papyrus has been taking up a lot of my time over the past few days.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 is being threatened with a second death; the Sci-Fi Channel has decided not to buy any more episodes after the current season 10 is over.

The SFC also failed to get the B5 spinoff Crusade, though I’m glad to see it wasn’t for lack of trying. According to JMS (the series’ creator), the SFC people crunched numbers for two solid weeks, but they had already budgeted all their money and just couldn’t come up with the significant capital they’d need for Crusade. At least they recognized what they had (and were reportedly desperate for it), and tried.
