I disagree that Admiral's age is an issue. I do know that sometimes a poster will say something that I tend to take with a bit of care because I think the poster is young but nothing about Admiral's post screamed "I just made the cut off to post here!". It's entirely possible he (based on Avatar, I'm going with "he") was not in America when the show was first broadcast. That would explain his question very well.
jorDe is really smart! Profit is the thing...the show cost too much to make for what it brought in. Sadly, it had lost a huge chunk of its audience base before the team clicked in and (from what I hear) started making good television. It was not able to recover from that.
Thanks to Ron Salon for the signature banner!
