Say it ain't so

miyeko IMed me the unfortunate news that SG-1 has been cancelled by the Sci-Fi channel. I'm all for the inevitable campaign to save it, as I said two years ago: "It will probably go two more years, though there are at least four more of stories before it lapses into warmed-over cheese." I have a feeling its time has finally come, though. Before proceeding directly to the wake, and to questions about where Black, Bridges, Judge, Shanks, Tapping et al. will go next: where are Anderson and other alumni of the show?

Here's hoping Stargate: Atlantis has legs. Even though the last few episodss have impressed me about as much as the late first and second season of Enterprise, I think there's potential for developing the Wraith meta-arc into something epic, cf. Babylon 5. Are they up for it? I doubt it, as there are not too many Straczynskis and Whedons writing for sci-fi these days. You never know, though.

I hope hope hope BSG's third season (and its inevitable spinoff Caprica) don't suffer the same fate!

Holy cow, yes.

Love the icon!

It is distressing; SG-1 has provided me with the consistency I would otherwise lack in a Trekless universe.

I guess Sci Fi could better use the money to make Mansquito II: The Revenge. They must have some fascinating board meetings.

SG-1 wasn't always brilliant, but it was comfortable like an old group of friends I visited weekly. I will be sad to see it go, especially since Ben Browder and Claudia Black just joined. I was hoping new blood would infuse the story line with some interesting twists.

Tonight's Stargate: Atlantis was better. It seems any time they bring in the wraith, the quality improves. I have great hope for this series. There is much untapped potential. And we haven't killed all the characters off several times, yet!

Sorry for the anonymous post. In the bad weather, we must have had a power dip and I didn't realize I was no longer signed in.

It was good to have the tornado slip past us without any destruction. I think one was sighted around Smolan and perhaps Brookville, but it looks as though things are settled down for the night.
