WTF!?!

What happened to the whole "Scare Tactics isn't achieving the audience we expected..." SciFi press release?

$10 says that the next 9 episodes take Scare Tactics in a "new direction" which largely involves Shannen Doherty in less and less clothing...

Got a URL and/or article title for that, or are you reading that into something Bonnie said (wishful thinking )?

That'd be a slight improvement.

Compared to Tremors, Scare Tactics is Masterpiece Theater.

If Scare Tactics is the bottom of the barrel, what's that make Tremors: The Series, the scum under the barrel?

Actually, I consider them equally bad. They're just bad in different ways.

I made a mistake, it wasn't an article, but it was a BBS post from a SciFi employee. You can check out the original thread where we discussed it here.

Basically, I thought that was that, but now...

Evidently that's a lower level employee who didn't know which way the wind was blowing for Bonnie.

That's nine episodes I won't be watching. Makes me wonder what Shannon Doherty has on Bonnie?

Probably the fact that her show costs about $5 an episode to produce and can be ready to air in a big hurry (compared to other types of shows).
