    Fingers crossed they don't decide to remake Galactica 1980 afterwards...

    Galactica 1980? Was that to the original BSG as The Ropers were to Three's Company?

    Actually, I think that's good news. The overall arc of the narrative, in my opinion, fits well with ending the series soon.

    I love Battlestar Galactica and I think Eick & Moore can do no wrong. It'll be a whole lot of fun to see how all our questions are answered.

    It was the worst sequel to any TV show ever made in the history of mankind ever. Ever ever ever. Allow YouTube to explain further:

    Galactica 1980 is the only SFish show that i've ever stopped watching after a single episode. That personally speaks volumes about it considering that I sat througth all of Voyger, Enterprise, Space Above and Beyond, Space Precinct and Invasion as well as the first dozen or so episodes of Stargate Atlantis and Andromeda.

    Dude, Galactica 1980 had flying motorcycles.

    Think about that.

    It also had terrible acting, stunningly poor effects (even for 1980), and awful scripts and plots. Flying motorcycles do not redeem it.

    Wasen't Dick Van Dyke's son in it as well? Who would have thought that Diagnosis Murder would have been a great leap foward in an acting career.

    A little sooner than i would've liked to see it end... but hopefully it means they'll have a lot to work with next season.



    ...oh you never know, now that BSG is winding down, they could try to dilute the Stargate franchise further.

    Oh dear god, the humanity! That's the show everyone accuses me of liking when they find out I'm a fan of (classic) BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. "Oh, you mean the one with the flying bikes", "the one when they're on Earth" etc.
    I just cannot convince them it's an utterly different entity. I was trying to forget... why did you remind me, dammit? WHY??

    There is indeed another STARGATE show in the pipeline (no details released as yet though!)

    Dammit, BSG is my absolute favorite show on TV. I hope Season 4 is the same caliber as Season 1 and part of 2. They kinda let it go in Season 3. Either way, I can't wait for them to start up again.

    Well, we know that the working title is Stargate: Universe and it deals with the 9th chevron.

    But yeah, pity to see Galactica going. Hopefully Caprica will be able to fill it's shoes.

    This shouldn't really surprise anybody. Edward James Olmos and Katee Sackhoff told everybody at the Saturn Awards that this would be the last season. I think it's a good thing and should make for one hell of a final season. Plus, at least we got a 4th season. It was touch and go there for awhile.

    People complain about all the filler episodes in season 3, but even still, the filler episodes are better than 99% of everything else on telelvision.

    I'm gonna be sad to see it end, but at least there will be Heroes to keep me occupied in the mean time.

    Flying motorcycles is indeed an awesome concept, and I wouldn't mind one myself. But the way they did them looked awful back in 1980, let alone now.
