If you watch 'Defying Gravity' and live in the U.S. . . .

Here in the U.S., ABC recently stopped airing Defying Gravity after the eighth episode, and left us hanging with a vague promise to air the rest of the episodes when they can. Not so in Canada, where CTV aired the ninth episode last week. Which is a good one—and one that propels us forward by leaps and bounds in the story. And you can see (at least for the next few days) online here (hat tip Examiner). Unfortunately, it looks like CTV is also going the route of ABC: they're also taking the series off the air for now.

I must say, the Internet is quickly becoming one of my preferable ways of viewing television programs. Last month, I watched the entire first season of SyFy’s Sanctuary on Netflix Instant (for free!) and this weekend I watched the first two episodes of Castle on iTunes (I’d missed them the first time around). And since there are at least four programs I want to watch on Thursday nights at the same time (and my DVR can only record two), I’ll most likely be watching the first season of FlashForward on Hulu. I know I’m late to the game on this, but I must admit that I am really enjoying the convenience and adaptability of being able to watch TV on my laptop instead of the living room.

Thanks for the link! I was wondering if Canada was going to continue airing this...

In case you have not been watching the last episodes which are really very good with lots of GODTALK, you can watch them on http://ch131.com/...
they have all 13 episodes there.
I really am going to miss the show and wish someone, anywhere would have picked it up for a back nine or new season. The last episode can be viewed as an ending...of sorts..
I love your TV snapshots and would love your take on the last couple of episodes of this awesome show....
