I would like to thank you for posting this!

Please don't hurt me anybody, but I found out that ION was going to air Quantum Leap about a week ago or so. However, I heard it through a second-hand information source, and didn't want to get anyone's hopes up for nothing, so I'm happy that ION confirmed this.

This is great news, nonetheless!

P.S. They are also going to be bringing back The Drew Carey Show the hour before Quantum Leap each day (Monday-Friday), if anyone liked that show on ION.

I believe you went to the ION forum, so I can assume that you remember how angry people were about Quantum Leap's cancellation. I'm sure that those at ION know the same thing would repeat itself if Quantum Leap were to go off the air again in the same fashion.

You're assuming they actually READ their message boards, lol. Is the PollyAnna still there telling people to buy the DVD if they want to watch old shows?

I made the observation on that forum that a show that had a board with no comments was doing quite well, since the only feedback that just about every show got was negative. My feedback included, I'll admit.

Still, though, keep the pitchforks around, just in case.

You may need to supply the real members of the ION Forum with some. Not to attack the ION forum, but to scare off the spammers.

Oh god I saw those spamming messages on there a few days ago. There are people on there complaining about it now! I have no idea why the moderators if they have one on that forum delete that stuff and ban them?

We think that there are only a few people doing most of the spamming, and just going by different names, because I think that the usernames are banned from the websites once the offensive messages are taken off.

I think the ABC Family's "25 Days of Christmas" forum got nailed by a handful of trolls. Couldn't have a single intelligent discussion.

One is a spammer who runs his own "Christmas Media" site - he would bad-mouth ABC Family then tell people to check HIS site to get listing.

The others were just filling the board with new threads whining that their favorite christmas cartoon wasn't on the schedule. Most of the time, they were wrong, so either it was just a trollgame or the people were challenged and couldn't figure out how to check their cable/satellite listings. When we pointed this out, four of us were accused of being ABCF "plants." lol I just walked away after saying my peace.

ION does look two or three people - the writing styles are the same. Has anyone reported the spam to the mods?

I don't think that anyone has directly confronted the administrators about this, but after a few days the spam posts are deleted. I think that there just needs to be someone who comes in daily and deletes the spammers' posts, so that they may just get tired knowing that their posts don't even last a day.

But I am sorry to hear about the ABC forum's fate.

It looks like the series this time on ION is going in order and not skipping around as much. That's always nice.

The funny thing is that they skipped that episode the last time around. I wonder what they don't like about it?

I know this is a little late, but did anyone else know that NBC Universal controls both Sci-Fi and ION?

I was doing some research for www.savekylexy.com and I found that fact buried many pages back in the corporate entity descriptions. It's like nepotism! lol
