HTV only showed the first 22 episodes during it's original run. I remember this very well as I watched pretty much every episode religously. I recall seeing the destruction of Makara's carrier and saying to myself, "Cor I've got to watch next weeks episode" Of course the very next Saturday at 10am it wasn't on, and after a few weeks of vainly waiting for it to turn up in the 10am slot, I came to the conclusion that they just weren't going to show the last 2 episodes. They did in the end though, but it wasn't untill much later in 1983. I wonder if the TV programmers made a mistake and thought that Star Fleet had finished with the destruction of Makara's carrier. Or it could just have been bad planning.On a similar topic I remember watching Alien Nation in a late night slot on HTV a few years back. The season finale ended on a cliffhanger and as the credits rolled an embarassed continuity announcer had to explain that the show had been cancelled in america and that the show would not be returning. A few years later they did make a TV movie to tie up loose ends, but it was funny to hear the announcer squirm. By the way I'm not a huge fan of Alien Nation, but it was something to watch late night. I'm going to like to see how BBC2 explain the fact that Farscape won't be returning after a cliffhanger ending too.Shane.Shane.(Edited by Shane at 4:03 pm on Dec. 8, 2002)
