The SciFi Channel quietly took over co-production in 2001, after the series was cancelled by Showtime (Season 7). Apparently there were already some cable-ready episodes in the can at the time of cancellation, as the MA-rated "Flower Child" was only broadcast during the show's syndication-only run. On the whole the SciFi-MGM relationship resulted in lower-quality episodes and clip-shows. The SciFi Channel was still administrated by the Vivendi-Universal group at this time. An "unsanitized" version of "Flower Child" appears on DVD in the US release of the Outer Limits' "Sex and Science Fiction" collection.
