May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.

It also was too expensive to produce, which is why other networks that could have bought it from Fox all passed.
Besides, since when are TV networks interested in quality programming?

Don't squat with your spurs on.
Quote:Friends (much as I hate it) had the rateings to support the cost.

Quote:To Browncoat1: To answer your question, my roommate, who turned me on to Firefly, read a while back that that cost was even more of a consideration than the poor ratings.
Quote:Considering what Fox did to the show, airing it out of order and all, how could it not have poor ratings? I mean, when I first saw it I felt like I had been dropped in the middle and they weren't explaining things. Of course, that was because "Serenity" hadn't been aired.
Quote:I honestly gave up on it while Keith kept watching. He kept trying to get me to watch and I did catch a couple towards the end including "Serenity". We both cursed Fox that night. We knew right then and there that if they had shown it in order we would have loved the series from the start.
I really wonder what the ratings could have been.
Quote:Actually, from what I'd heard the costs weren't that high. I seem to recall reading somewhere that the true production cost per episode was around $800,000 per episode, and that the Fox distribution costs (I have no idea what that category entails) were around $1,200,000 per episode.
Compared to the $6,000,000+ that was spent on pretty much every one of the later "Friends" episodes, I'd say that's quite affordable.
