Well written well thought out and well made tv shows like threshold, invasion, fireflies (which had the film serenity made due to its popularity) get axed either mid season or at the end of season 1 just because of poor viewing figures in america.. why dont they think of the global market for once, global broadcast all at the same time see where it is popular in other countries and produce them for there. It will be cost effective as you will see that people watch them and you will get the money in, just because america dont view it due to ratings clashes or poorly chosen spots where something is on the other side more popular, its a shame to see these series go to waste.

Invasion is one it was shown in the uk, and had good ratings but no new series was made because the us didnt watch it, fireflies was so popular and in demand that they made a film to try and stop the flood of complaints from fans of the series, threshold was cancelled mid series, but it has a well thought out plotline, and would have had a unique feature to the series had it continued, because series 1 was threshold, but by the end of series 1 which obviousely was cut short there would have been a significant “infectee” presence, so series 2 was planned to be called foothold, to signify the second stage of “the plan” obviousely you would have to see the series to get anything I am on about, and stage 3 of the plan for invasion was in the case of a significant population of aliens, would have been the stranglehold phase, and that would have been series 3.. but no we have to make do with tv program’s being cut off in thier prime, and put up with the drole uninteresting crap the bbc puts out like eastenders etc.. Sorry thats just not my cup of tea. Which is where I can point to my idea of a global tv subscription where all programmes are transmitted globally, it is possible, and for the fee of the tv license better program’s would be on offer and better choice.. sky have the right idea with pay as you go tv.. put everything up as a downloadable program which gets streamed to your tv, pay a fair price for it.. that way you pay for only what you want to watch, heck I know that would be far cheaper than the cruddy tv licence annually, and Id get to see things Im interested in in times Im interested in seeing them. Now all we need is the world to catch up and put everything like that, perhaps then they would be able to get global rankings of thier tv program’s due to everyone accross the world getting the program at the same time, and showing them how demanded the tv is.
