by on Jan.23, 2002, under Television

The Comics Continuum is reporting that Jeremiah will debut on Sunday, March 3rd at 8pm on Showtime with a two-hour movie, and then it will appear regularly on Fridays at 10:45pm, placing it after Stargate SG-1, at least until that show transfers to the SCI FI Channel this summer. In the meantime, Showtime also announced that it has ordered a full season of Odyssey 5, about a shuttle crew who sees a cataclysmic event on Earth but are able to return 5 years in the past and try to stop it from happening. It will star Peter Weller (Buckaroo Banzai) and Sebastian Roche (Merlin).

    “Odessy 5” == B5 Crusade ripoff?

    Odessy 5 sounds like a B5 Crusade ripoff. I hope WB (ie AOL) take them to the cleaners over it!

    Re:”Odessy 5″ == B5 Crusade ripoff?

    A) Warner Bros does not own any kind of monopoly on anything with the number “5” in the title;

    2) The “we know there is a coming disaster if we don’t do anything about it” is NOT a new plot; and

    III) 5 years is a common contractual thing in the TV industry.

    Three strikes – yer out!

    Yes, individually, yes, but when you take a show that has all three, it just sounds like a complete rip-off.
