    I thought it was renewed a long time ago The showrunners talked about season three midway through season 2. Maybe this was just the "official" renewal. I think it was a foregone conclusion that the show would be coming back.

    For me, nothing makes up for Tatiana being snubbed again. I love Downton Abbey, but in NO universe did Michelle Dockery give a better performance this year. Same with the rest of the nominees.

    True, but on the bright side every thing I read people are outraged that she didn't get nominated. Good publicity for the show. And Tatiana has to know we think she is the best!

    Science fiction show and films are considered to have a genre audience and are often overlooked by the awards shows. It's been that way forever.

    In my opinion, the Emmys are well past their expiration date for relevance. When they started there were only 3 major networks and a few local stations on the air. Now there are hundreds, so way too many great actors, directors, writers, and shows are passed over. One way to solve it for me would be to have separate awards shows for network, cable, and premium channels. Many more people would get recognized for their work and with three shows, none would last more than 2 or 3 hours. They should also add in a best cast ensemble award for each like SAG does.

    Just got to watch "The Musketeers" Friday (second showing) and I have to say it's fun to watch. The Musketeers have good chemistry and it's nice to see Peter Capaldi in this as the Cardinal. His subtle performance makes me look forward to his Doctor Who run.

    Oh and count me in on being disappointed on Tatiana being snubbed. I guess Hollywood JEALOUS of her ability to flawlessly play so many roles in one show when most of them muddle through one.

    We were talking about The Real History of Science Fiction not too long ago and wondering why they had shown only three of the four episodes. They aired episode 4, "Time" this past weekend and it was as interesting as the others. I expect they'll air it again fairly soon.

    My hope would be that they'd show all four of them again, but I'll just have to watch the schedule and see.

    I was thrilled to finally see it, though I did find some of the content not necessarily "time travel". Still it was a good show.

    I enjoyed it too, and being a huge fan of time travel stories, I really loved it!

    Just a quick followup to let everyone know that all four episodes are now available.
