ABC's "Master of Science Fiction". What say you?

First, my usual question: Is there already a thread on this?

Anyway, ABC gave the go-ahead for four episodes of this series. I'm interested, but skeptical at the same time. Why? Well, only four episodes were produced, and they are showing them on Saturday night. The "coveted demographic" is not watching television at home on Saturday night. This is known as a dead zone in the world of commercial network tv. So, the show is being used as time filler.

Still, these four episodes boast some excellent actors, and it sounds like some fine writing and production values.

For some reason, I'm extremely leery of any sci-fi produced and broadcast by any of the Big 3 stations. It will inevitably be watered down to please the masses. And since it's ABC, it will probably have no smoking, cross-promote other ABC programs, and pitch the pleasures of Disneyland/Disneyworld.

Or not...maybe I'm just crabby today.
