Hi Wrong Arturo, thanks for reading my articles, I'm glad you enjoyed them. I'm not sure which link you're referring to, as I've just tried them all and had no issues? Is it the drop down menu?

That's my general memory of it too - some of them I've only seen once, but I recall season 3 as being a real high point.

I didn't realise there was so much variance before (apart from season 5,...

It's hard to fathom just how not only the image quality, but also the quality of TVs could be so bad that this wasn't noticed before. I say that as someone who watched it at the time, of course.

I'd actually be sad enough to work that out. :)

I'm assuming that it would be the ratings for the following week's episode, though, after word-of-mouth picked up?

Definitely. I listened to the podcast commentary with Deborah Pratt on Another Mother, where she claimed that the ratings rose every time Scott Bakula got his chest out. :)

I don't know if I'd agree with that 100% (it's been a while since I saw Blood Moon) but I generally agree, yes. There are definitely a handful each season that seem more "special" than the rest...

I read that comic, but I couldn't see a foreword in it.

I'd have to watch them all again, but off the top of my head, I always found some episodes just skippable rather than actively bad. Even one of the "bad" episodes I last saw (the Evil Leaper one) I...

I've done a search and can't seem to find that this has been discussed?

I found the tone in this one didn't work for me... it was too dramatic to be a comedy, yet too jokey/romantic to be a drama. Watchable stuff, but more of an average Leap.

Ah, sorry, my mistake - I'd misread the post I was replying to as "Jimmy".
