It had more to do with FOX screwing the pooch. First, they aired the pilot episode last. They made the creators write a new pilot episode over the course of a weekend (The Train Job), which while a good episode, left viewers not really knowing exactly what was going on.

They pre-empted the show all the time because of the baseball -- sometimes it was on at midnight, sometimes they didn't show it at all, there was no rhyme or reason.

Their advertising, which was very minimal, was STUPID. "A cosmic hooker! A girl in a box!" was literally one of the lines. Here's a link to the video - it's pathetic marketing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8JMs1_S7lU

And keep in mind that, since they aired the episodes out of order, there was no girl in the box until the last episode they aired....

At the time, there weren't many people with DVRs -- yet it was the most TiVo'd show of its time (or so I read at the time). It was one of the only ways people could watch it, since it kept moving.

People also didn't get the premise. You'd often see questions about "if they have spaceships, why do they have horses???" They didn't understand that the inner planets had all the resources and the outer planets didn't -- and that if you don't have unlimited resources, horses (and other livestock) can reproduce and don't break down and need repairs like a spaceship would, so... There was one episode where they went to a central planet and you saw the wealth differences. What's funny is that Hunger Games did the EXACT SAME THING with the districts vs. the Capitol, and nobody complained about that... Maybe we've evolved a bit.

It was a great serial show at a time where most shows were standalone. Definitely ahead of its time.

How I wish they would have made this series at a different time. Maybe it could have survived. At least more than 1 season Frown

Great deal on a great, if not sadly short, series. Repped.

EDIT:. If you are using a VPN (as many people do) you stand a good chance of your order being automatically cancelled by B&N's "fraud detection" system. Just trying to let ppl know because there's no indication when ordering that this is a problem.

So sad this show had such a short run. I actually found out about it through SD posts and gave it a watch a couple years ago and loved it! But of course, that only ended up causing me to join the masses disappointed that we only got one dang season. Still, they say better to have loved and lost, then never to have loved at all. 😊

Everyone needs to know the reason why it was never renewed was because of Chinese drug money funding the first season. They got into a lot of trouble and many of the cast members refused to sign on to the next seasons.
What's wrong with Chinese drug money?

Example of knowing what you're talking about. ..it was a TV show no box office relavance.
He's referring to Serenity (the Firefly movie), but he still doesn't know what he's taking about.
