Re: Star Gate SG1 cancelled

Man, my news-writing mind kicked in when I read this....

Quote:
The future of Stargate is in question today, as SCI FI Channel has cancelled the long-running Stargate SG-
I would say SG-1 is cancelled, it's pretty clear.

Quote:
The news regrettably follows the airing of the show's milestone two-hundredth episode on Friday.
Why is that regretabble. Would it have been better before the 200th episode?

Quote:
with the network hoping to see that the spin-off series can stand alone, according to a source.
Wow. I'm glad they have the source. I could never have deduced that they'd want that!



But yeay, it's been ten seasons. Give it a damn rest already.

They're already doing a BSG spinoff?

Work, work, work....
Yeah. They've finished running the old one into the ground within two years, so they need something else to turn into crap. If they're really good it'll start crap.

Point of interest: Why would something named after a planet (Caprica) be spaced based? Isn't BSG already spaced based?
Caprica, is currently supposed to be a prequel, so, while it will have ties to the planet Caprica, I would imagine they will have space ships and such as well.

Not by the end of S2, which is all anyone has seen

No, they just killed good writing. Even the hotness of Tahmoh has not kept me to the show, which I've given up on by the end of season two.

That show started off so damn good, it really did. And it was "no technobabble, no Star Trek blah blah" arrogance. Then you have a woman with cancer cured by the blood of the half-robot/half-human baby. And that half-robot is actually another version of a robot who was in love with another crewmember, who for some reason decided to punch another woman's face to pieces. I could go on.

Re: Star Gate SG1 cancelled

Well, I suppose I did ask, but that's a bunch of very interesting spoilers for someone who only saw up to "Pegasus." Fortunately I didn't understand the second half of it, and I'm not about to go back and read for clarity....

Re: Star Gate SG1 cancelled

Sci-Fi is like a psycho girlfriend.

You want with all your heart to love her and cherish her, and you feel that spending time with her will change her, but just when you think things are finally going well, she reminds you that she's really just a crazy bitch.

SG-1 has reinvented itself more successfully than any other show I've seen... and did so not only after losing its main character (Richard Dean Anderson), but after ending the storyline arc that had carried it for 8 seasons (the Goa'uld arc). I'm loving the new "King Arthur/Merlin" arc, and the new enemies are even greater than the Goa'uld were.

The additions of Ben Browder and Claudia Black turned off a lot of people when the news broke. These are the same types of people who said Star Trek TNG would never amount to jack. As much as Browder's character of Cameron Mitchell seems similar to John Crichton, Claudia Black's Valla Maldoran is the complete opposite of Aeryn Sun.

A new article in Multi-Channel News has a couple of interesting quotes:

Quote:
Stern added that under terms of its contract, the network’s decision to cancel the series prohibits MGM from making any new episodes of the show to air on U.S. television.

He noted, “If MGM came to us for less,” Sci Fi would be interested in more Stargate SG-1 fare, whether in the form of episodes, movies or miniseries. He would not disclose the network’s license fee to MGM.
Sounds to me like Sci-Fi is doing some hardball negotiating in the press, instead of behind closed doors, as would be appropriate.

Crazy bitch.
