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.

The Dresden Files The Dresden Files has not been cancelled, as fans of the series were quick to let me know. It has not been renewed, at this writing, but there is still hope. We should know soon, one way or the other.

Jericho is still cancelled -- despite almost 6000 pounds of nuts sent by fans to CBS. CBS has promised to do "something" for fans. My guess -- a final wrap up on the series DVD or else a made-for-DVD movie.

The season finale of Heroes clinches its place as the best SF on TV in the 2006-2007 season. Heroes will be back for a second season.

June is the month in which Stargate SG-1 ends its unprecedented ten year run (yes, Dr. Who fans, only unprecedented for a continuously running American SF TV series). The Stargate franchise still has a long way to go to catch up with the Star Trek franchise in total number of episodes, but Stargate may be the wave of the future. I just returned from a trip to China, and the Chinese have heard of Stargate, but nobody I spoke to had ever heard of Star Trek, and neither the Star Trek TV series nor any of the Star Trek movies were on sale there on DVD. (The complete first season DVD of Heroes was on sale.) William Shatner's oft quoted "Get a life," may have killed Star Trek forever. If the new movie is either never made or flops, that is probably it for the Star Trek (not counting a nostalgic move to be made in 2027 with an animatronic Kirk and Spock).

And that strange series, The 4400, is back with new episodes. Harder to kill than a roadrunner.
