I always wondered what happened to this show. I was into it and then it suddenly disappeared. Another showtime show called Street Time (about parole officers and their paroles) was on around the same time. Brilliant show but I fear it suffered the same fate.

Never heard of the show, might have watched it if it was on Sci-fi channel. Or they should have put their ep's on a website after they showed it on showtime. I hate to see sci-fi get cancelled. But I don't get showtime.

Yeah, they started this up with Jeremiah several years back. Odysee 5 disappeared rather quickly, though. I was surprised they gave Jeremiah as long a run as they did. Of course, they weren't very reliable in airing it regularly. I don't understand what Showtime expects ratingswise out of their programs. They canned Dead Like Me a little early too. That was a critical darling and I would imagine it was doing as well as a show could on a network with minimal penetration. HBO is the first tier of premium channels anywhere you go followed by Cinemas and maybe Stars. To get Showtime, you're probably going to the highest level of premium channels. They just can't get the same audience HBO does for its great shows.
