I haven't seen season 4 but from what I have read it isn't good at least they got 6 eps to wrap it up

Most shows don't get past 5 seasons on any network.

Skiffy doesn't seem to want to carry any scripted shows beyond 5 years.

'reality' crud. their overabundance of paranormal stuff, moderately rigged contest shows, wrestling

basically stuff I won't waste my time on.

There's still Defiance...


And I guess the six episodes is to make up for the extra seven episodes season 4 got...

Hell, even Stargate SG-1 only lasted for five seasons on SyFy, as did SGA...

good luck with the very long wait you'll have for 6 episodes they did the same exact thing to Eureka and by then, no one will care. glad its gone it was turning into a glorified POS.

there was no rhyme or reason for this season NONE it was all about killing off main characters and once you do that an audience will start turning it off and they did. their big mistake, too cheap to hire a bad guy for season 4 so they used Artie.

and you are wrong, their current shelf life is 4 and half years they just stretch it for 5 by adding 6 eps BFD.

Artie was the "villain" to show that there was a cost to his use of the astrolabe. In fact most of S4 was about the "cost" of our choices. Do I think they did it "well", Umm, not really, but W-13 has never been about "deep thought" It's a fun show, a cheese show, and it has never pretended to be anything but.

?

They hired Brent Spiner who turned out to be a figment of Artie's imagination (after trapping him in a painting, which still deserves a wtf) as the villain. It was just a twist that Artie was the bad guy.

Circle of life for any show, I am so used to it now, it is just like a big "meh" to me. You have to just move on and find something new to watch. I don't follow ratings anymore, because quite frankly it is a waste of time to try and understand what is profitable to the network when not all the numbers are there in front of you.

If a show is good enough it will last or at least find a new home some place not held hostage by TV ratings. Shows do find a way of coming back, like "24" for an example. I do believe W13 could still be around in some format after it's run on Syfy is done.

As for now, the final season, or final half season can really make the show go out with a bang, and it is good the network is giving the order for more eps to find closure.

Any scripted show to last 5 Seasons on Syfy is a huge Success!

Skiffy must have such a high profit margin on shows that they just can't make it. But sometimes I have to wonder if they have an automatic 'Five and it's done' policy.

Very few of skiffy's shows are all that great, ratings wise, to begin with. There is such a thing as 'good for us'....as in good ratings for our network. But sometimes it does feel that the bar is set impossibly high, that no show can make the numbers they demand. And since their overabundance of 'unscripted reality' stuff has a higher profit margin, they can pull less numbers and still be deemed a success.

Defiance will be interesting because it's different. How much of the show's continuing is tied to the game's success and vice versa?

And hopefully it will actually be 6 episodes this time around...*cough* Eureka

Also, I recently discovered that Warehouse 13 season 4 will thankfully be released as a complete season rather than the half season bullcrap. So that's good news.

It would have been better had they done two 13 episode seasons and then ordered the last six instead of a fragmented 20 episodes and then the six. Oh well, it is a nice show, while it lasts.

But on some networks a "season" still means 22 episodes, not 13.

And some shows a seasons is considered even less than that. I am looking at you UK. A season is not definied by episode count but by production of TV content

The U.K. seasons especially, they can be on season five and it's actually the tenth episode thirty years after the pilot first aired. (Yes, I know I'm exaggerating. Not by much, though.)

How a season is defined ought to be more precise, because sometimes the comparisons are apples and oranges. "Most shows don't last longer than five seasons." True, because after five years of 22 episodes a year most shows start to get a little stale. But a show that's technically only halfway to that number of episodes probably still some life left in it.

I think Syfy uses their scripted shows to drum up viewership for their profit making, low budget reality shows. They have a history with their expensive miniseries like Taken and The Lost Room where they lost a lot of money on them but they got people to tune in to be exposed to their ads for their cheaper programming.

Unfortunately with things like illegal downloading those commercials are no longer being seen by nearly as many people. Syfy has squandered their old scifi base and Defiance is an attempt to get them back. I think we will see more new "scifi" shows on Syfy over the next year as the network desperately tries to reestablish a core audience.

This weeks WH13 pulled in barely a million viewers and a 0.4 rating.

We're darn lucky to get another 6 episodes. Its headed into Stargate Universe and Sanctuary terrority at the end of those shows.

I have WH13 s1-4 on DVD but have not watched it yet.

It sounds like I will enjoy it through S3 but it falls off by your reports.

IMO very few shows should go past 3 seasons.

They should not make you want them to end but instead make you wish they did not end.

Sounds like they overstayed

Depending on your point of view it's going pretty well. They just had one episode that they probably could have done without. Tomorrow is the last episode....It will be interesting to see how they wrap everything up in less than an hour!

I really enjoyed Warehouse 13 so I'm going to miss it!

It's nice to see a sci-fi show with some humor, not many of those around anymore!

Hopefully they'll do both because I would hate to see someone have seasons 1-4 but not be able to get the final season because it's only a part of a boxset. I still haven't decided whether or not to get the series on DVD but that may be the only way to see episodes from seasons 1 and 2 that I haven't seen since it's highly unlikely that SYFY will show reruns of the series now that it's over with.
