1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    How do you write a great mystery? If you're BSG and Lost, you make up as you go along without an ending. If you take long enough to tell the story, people will just forget all the loose threads.

    For example, if you watched BSG you have to remember that at the end of the (second?) season, they came to the planet they all came from and found that their colonies were all named after the signs of the zodiac and had flags with the present-day constellations on them. Constellations change over time, so it was a big twist "reveal" that the show was set in our future. Then the writers gave up on that idea and just said "God did it," it being trick the audience for no reason at all.

    If you want a sci-fi show with a great ending watch Babylon 5. Season 5 was great!

    bsg's ending sucked but I felt like Lost had a really great last year that at least touched on nearly everything in the story that people had questions about.

    not that it wasn't made up in a lot of cases, but I felt satisfied. at least, moreso than bsg (personally much more so)

    The Larry Sanders Show (perfect blend of emotion + keeping the characters honest to what we’ve come to expect)

    The Prisoner (love the ambiguity and cyclical nature of it: looping back into the first episode)

    Sports Night ( from memory)

    Twin Peaks (although Lynch was forced to blow his load halfway through the second season, the final episode is amazing)
