Ratings are based on a four star system.
One star means that the commercials are more entertaining than the program.
Two stars watch if you have nothing better to do.
Three stars is good solid entertainment.
Four stars means you never dreamed television could be this good.

Battlestar Galactica Rumors abound on the internet. Battlestar Galactica has been given the go-ahead for six episodes by Ron Moore. Rick Berman will be fired from Star Trek. Star Trek Enterprise will finish up the Xindi story line in eleven more episodes and that will be the end of Star Trek for the foreseeable future. Babylon 5 will return with new episodes by J. Michael Straczynski. Rumors, all rumors.

On more solid ground: Enterprise will move to 9 P.M. in March, so it won't compete with Smallville. Will Smallville viewers switch channels to watch Enterprise or stay tuned for Angel? My recommendation is to switch. Stargate Atlantis will debut in June. Christopher Reeve will return to Smallville. Andromeda has been renewed for a fifth season, but that will be its last. The Babylon 5 spin-off, Crusade, will be out on DVD in 2004. The Lone Gunman will not.

Jeremiah And all is silence as to if or when the episodes of Jeremiah that have already aired in Canada will be shown in the US. Very strange. There have been numerous interviews with and articles about Sean Astin and his plans after The Lord of the Rings. None of them that I've read even mentions Astin's role as Mr. Smith on Jeremiah? What is going on?

SF and Fantasy on Television in February

Smallville The Saturday reruns of Enterprise have proved unreliable -- last Saturday they aired an episode of Voyager -- so I am listing Enterprise on Wednesday, opposite Smallville.

Andromeda, "Spider's Stratagem"
Wednesday, February 4
Enterprise, "Stratagem", story by Terry Matalas, teleplay by Mike Sussman
Wednesday, February 4
