We just watched the February 18 episode of Killer Women and the "previously
on" segment showed tons of stuff that hasn't aired yet. I know the show
was only going to be 8 episodes long and this was the 6th episode aired.
This last episode kinda seemed it could have been a season finale.
know for sure if ABC skipped 1 or 2 episodes. I know they definitely
skipped at least one.
The other episode not shown was "Queen Bee." Here is a list of the eight
Online comments suggest that "Demons" was episode number 6, "Daughter of
the Alamo" (the last one broadcast) was number 7, and Queen Bee was
When stuff like this happens, I don't understand why the networks don't

They went to all the expense to make the damn things. Even if they only
make a small amount of revenue back from the downloads, that's more than
they'd get just putting them up on a shelf somewhere unseen.
Well, here's an example that may or may not be on point.
A friend of mine sold a comic strip he'd created to FOX animation. The

per episode - when the episode aired.
They produced them, and shelved them, and they've never seen the light
of day, and he's never been paid a dime.
I don't know how many levels of payments get involved in projects like
this, but if it costs them money to air it, they likely won't.
Another thing is, it's a no-win scenario for the exec in charge. If
people say THIS IS CRAP the next question is 'why the hell did you make
this in the first place' and if people say THIS IS GREAT the next
question is 'why the hell didn't you air this?'
Studio accountants have this weird mentality where only costs count;
revenue doesn't. So if it cost them $10k in additional fees to put it
on line, and it brought in $20k in ad revenue, you and I would say it
was $10k in the black, but studio accountants would say it was $10k in
Wait - are you saying that ClodReamer was wrong, or lying?
