>> Of course, the question is, will they stick to this the next time around? Late season 2 and early season 3 will be awfully confusing if they do ... << Well, they should keep "Basics" together, as a two-parter. But I wonder about the rest. How do they know what order to air the episodes in, aside from the production number? The order they originally aired in is something only rabid fans remember. (And sometimes the things that determine airing order have nothing to do with the story: an episode has problems and needs re-shoots, say, or the FX take longer than planned, so they have to show another episode instead.) I suppose this is why multi-episode story arcs are considered a PITA for syndication.... -- Arlie

>> Actually, they are technically doing a bit of jumping ... "Initiations" airs Monday (technically today), I believe, but it appeared earlier in the second season than "Projections" and "Twisted" did. I guess they finally moved those back to the first season where they belonged. :) << Well, yes. They are showing the episodes chronologically -- but in production order, rather than in the order they first aired. Usually there's not much difference, but sometimes there is...like at the start of season 2 and the beginning of season 4. Thus, it's *not* random. If you know the production order of the episodes, and which episodes already aired during theme weeks, the rest of the daily syndication schedule is perfectly predictable. :-) -- Arlie

Actually, they are technically doing a bit of jumping ... "Initiations" airs Monday (technically today), I believe, but it appeared earlier in the second season than "Projections" and "Twisted" did. I guess they finally moved those back to the first season where they belonged. :) Robert Hutchinson

>> Does any one know when the reruns of the last season will start? I was unable to see most of the last season and the ones that I can see now are reruns of earlier seasons. << Are you getting daily or weekly reruns in your area? Currently, both the daily and weekly reruns are going in chronological order. They're up to second season in the daily, first season in the weekly. So count the weeks and that will tell you when fifth season will start rerunning. <g> -- Arlie

In the daily syndication, they are now showing the episodes in chronological order -- *excluding* the ones that have already aired during the "Theme Weeks." Thus, it skipped from "Time and Again" to "The Cloud," because the intervening episode, "Phage," already aired during the Theme Weeks. (Week 7, "Possessed" - the Halloween week, to be specific.) It makes sense, in a way, though it's frustrating for those who want to tape the eps in true chronological order. -- Arlie

Does any one know when the reruns of the last season will start? I was unable to see most of the last season and the ones that I can see now are reruns of earlier seasons. Warner Brothers channel. Thanks, Ron
