Virtuality

Twelve astronauts are on a ten-year expedition to search for a distant solar system. To stave off boredom the astronauts spend time in the self-created worlds they experience in virtual reality modules. The voyagers are faring well until someone downloads a bug into the system-is one of them the saboteur?

You are absolutely right in any way :)

Tnx for the detailed reasoning.

So here it is again for the cheap seats: THERE WON'T BE ANY MORE EPISODES OF VIRTUALITY.

This is only half-true. The only fact right now is that Virtuality was not picked up by Fox. This was even clear before the pilot aired. So that raised the question why they aired it anyway. And they didn't advertise it and they aired it in the death slot.
The only reason I - and many others on the webs - can think of is that Fox would like to give other networks the chance to follow the internet chatter and may pick it up.

Sorry, you are wrong. For one, Virtuality was advertised. Actually plenty for a programme in late June. And yes, there is a very very very small chance that Virtuality will be picked up by another network, but it is so small it is not even worth discussing. However, since you brought it up, here are the reasons (some of which are taken from this wonderful article: Virtuality canceled? ):

Shows dropped by a network get picked up very seldom by another network. In the few instances this has happened it was either because the show went from a "major" network to a cable network owned by the same company (think a switch from NBC to USA) or to the network owned by the production company's parent.

Virtuality is produced by Universal, which owns NBC, USA, and Syfy. It is very clear that FOX has no interest whatsoever on Virtuality - the numbers it posted were abysmal, nobody watched it, and they already gambled once on a high-brow sci-fi show (Dollhouse). The fact that Virtuality had lower numbers than Dollhouse among other things makes sure that FOX won't touch it with a 10-foot pole.

So Virtuality can either go to NBC, USA, or Syfy. NBC won't take it - they are struggling financially, they had to drop other, self-produced shows that were better, they have the new Leno show five-days a week that wreaked havoc with their programming, and they aren't very sci-fi friendly. USA is very similar - pretty full slate with the crumbs off of the NBC table and not really sci-fi friendly.

The only logical choice for a network would be Syfy. However, as the article described, Syfy already has a show run by Ron Moore (Caprica) that is dabbing into virtual reality and is similarly themed. While the two shows might diverge over time, at the beginning they are almost identical and that will make it a very hard sell. Lastly, the last thing Syfy wants is for their showrunner to be torn between two shows and do two half-assed things instead of one good one. So Syfy will pass on it with the biggest probability.

Syfy could eventually want to wait one season before airing new episodes, but that would mean producing them now and fronting the money to Universal immediately - otherwise the actors and crew will be lost to other shows/projects, etc. And do you think they will bank a lot of money on a show that got good reviews but abysmal ratings and might have a good internet buzz now? Internet buzz is very fleeting - it won't wait another season. And airing it now would damage Syfy's main show vehicle - Caprica.

As much as I would like the show continue, because god knows there isn't enough good sci-fi on nowadays, I just don't see even a remote chance of another network picking it up. But then again, miracles do happen - see Dollhouse. But I am afraid we've used up our supply of miracles for this year ...

Gotta love the fact how nobody reads the previous posts ... I knew that people were self-centered, but I (foolishly) thought they might want to not only share their opinions, but also read the opinions of others :) Oh well.

So long story short - there is a small chance Virtuality is picked up by another network and we get some more episodes. But that won't happen until next year.

To me it looked like the Big Brother part was toned down quite a lot in the last half of the show. If they keep that aspect in the background this series might get good. If they don't it's doomed to being mediocre. Will watch a couple of more eps to find out where it's heading.

Watched the first 20 mins and then gave up on it. I won't be wasting any more bandwidth on this which is a pity as I was waiting for a new decent SciFi series.

The show kinda reminds me of Kim Robinson's novel "Red Mars". However I didn't like it so much. Some concepts were promising but "bigbrotherisation" totally spoiled everything for me. Maybe it is too early to judge, after all that was just a pilot but I won't be devastated if they don't pick it up. If they do - I'll give it a chance.
