I don't generally watch any of the ST shows. I like X-Files
quite a bit, haven't seen virtually anything of Sliders...though I can
tell you now that the next big, nifty show to come along in the
fantasy/sf genre is going to be "Neverwhere" by Neil Gaiman. I've seen
a couple of episodes of it, and it's neat. Look for it later in the
year or spring. (It's from the BBC.)

"Neverwhere" will probably show up either on PBS or Bravo, since
it comes off the BBC.

I've seen the "Dark Skies" pilot...it's kind of a hodge podge of
stuff. Parts are very effective, some aspects stretch credulity...but a
pilot can be a poor indicator of the series, so I'll definitely give it
a shot when the regular show begins.

Odd, I'd thought Tracy Torme was off Sliders now. I'd heard
that, anyway. Let me know if he's still listed on the show in the new
eps.

Okay, the error here was mine. I was having dinner with a
friend a few weeks ago, and catching up on stuff (this friend also
works in the TV biz) and names were flying around...he mentioned that
Michael Piller was no longer involved in ST, and Tracy's name came
up...and this is entirely my own fault, I got the two juxtaposed in my
head. So I misspoke myself.

No, everything I've heard concurs with your assessment.
Basically, we have a lot of mutual friends in common, and the name just
came up in conversation.
