    I've been generally enjoying the programme, but Sky moved it. It even got kicked off my links in Sky as well so I didn't realise it was on at 12:30am this morning to tape it. And they don't seem to have it on Sky Mix either anymore either.

    Was viewing figures that bad for them to be exiling it to the early hours. :mad:

    HI,

    I guess it must have been performing badly on Sky. Sky 1 has a terrible tendency to pull or move a show to an alternative time-slot, if it doesn't get suitably high enough ratings, within the first couple of episodes. They've done this with many US shows that have underperformed, including: "Once And Again" and "Brooklyn South" amongst others.

    Are you sure there are no repeats? There certainly used to be :(

    Great show this (apart from that tedious episode where the old woman went over the falls in a barrel). The one last night was one of the better episodes I thought. And how cute is Jaye? [​IMG]

    Wonderfalls is one of those unkown gems that actually improves exponentially over the life of the (short-run) series.
    I urge you to get the DVD box-set. It only ran for about 16 episodes in the US before it was cancelled, just like Firefly. It really is a wonderful (wonderfall!) show.

    PS If you like this, then keep an eye open for a new series called 'Veronica Mars', which is also terrific.

    Does Wonderfalls have a proper conclusion to the series or just it does end like Firefly? (no spoilers please!)

    I think the makers were prewarned about the cancellation and so were able to provide a fitting final episode, yet still leave it open if the network changed its mind. It was a great final episode... just leaving you REALLY wanting more!!! (but no cliffhangers, thankfully)

    How's that for spoiler-free? ;)

    yeah there were repeats, but it looks like since they moved it to the late night slot, it's not worthy to appear on Sky Mix.

    I might see if I can get last night's episode from another source as that's the only one I've missed.

    I more gutted about the Sky listing losing my link to the programme when it moved time. Thought the whole point of it is to find the programme when it moved time slots. Of course it could be my machine as it does seem to drop the odd programme for no reason I can tell.

    According to my Digiguide, Wonderfalls is repeated on Sky MIX at 8pm on Friday, 19th August.

    My digiguide didn't find it either, in fact if I remember rightly it linked to the programme which replaced Wonderfalls in that timeslot.

    Thanks unfortuantely I missed your post till now, and I'm out tonight oh well.

    I seem to be unlucky. Yesterday Huff disappeared from it's usually FX slot and has gone late night as well. I didn't get to see it first time as it clashed with another programme, but was watching the repeats. Hopefully it continuing in episode order.

    Is it just me or does anyone else find the theme tune for Wonderfalls very catchy.
