*I* signed up for Showtime *just* for Jeremiah. I don't know about 
cable, but with the satellite dish, I have a "month-to-month" 
commitment. And it works out to about $2.50 US per episode. A very 
reasonable rate.

don't you think people could afford the ten bucks to get Showtime for July?

(and they occasionally show a film that worth watching, too)

Yeah, but I don't like to presume on other people's wallets, especially for
just three eps.  I've always valued the B5 viewer base and try to avoid asking
them to plonk down bucks unless necessary, on the theory that SF fans are in
general pretty exploited that way.
