That is just horribly plain sad. 2009 for the rest of the season.
I had read rumours about this but i did not believe it was thru as i was reading possible spoilers of the season. There is no word to say how i feel except that i am extremely dissapointed with most of this season's episode and that i gotta wait half a year for the rest of it? I betcha we won't even get to know who is the last cylon before next year.
I could die, crash in a plane, get kidnapped and never get a chance to know the end of this series. Are the producers mental or what? I would accept like " we will be back this fall" or something similar but now this announcment will upset a lot of people who might just throw their arms up in the air and move on to other thing than this waiting game they are playing with viewers!
