|Here is you quote to me - |
"Well, we would probably all call ourselves die hard fans, but I also
think I am the real thing. How can you be a die hard fan yet not like
Notice the "yet not like season 9?" part. What else does that mean ?
Now you failed to point out where I stated that I did not like season 9. Simple.
So Apology accepted.
I've been a fan of SG-1 for the last five years (ever since it was basic cable lol ). I can understand it coming to a close before the plotlines get stretched so thin that you'd think they weren't trying anymore, like a certain other show that shall remain nameless. I can see one of the regular cast members, (ie. Daniel) giving their life and destroying the ori ships in some brilliant explosion, a short montage with a few clips of the others in shock, crying, etcetera, and then going on with some recently made-up unbelievable plan and using Moros/Mirdin/Merlin's device to effectively block out the Ori. We laugh, we cry, and we move on with our lives.
Actually, the reason for Battlestar Galactica not starting until October is due to the fact that the creators of Galactica wanted more time for developing it. They felt that the second season was rushed and therefore they made some episodes that they felt were really bad and out of character. Their first season was only 13 episodes but the second was, of course, 20 and they were racing time to get through it. Therefore, they asked SciFi if they could move it back. I know SciFi makes several idiotic decisions but this was actually an act to improve the plot of BSG by its creators.
Sci fi execs should be kicked in the groin. So you wanna cancel the longest running science-fiction show and by far the longest running show on cable, ok. Seems like a damn foolish thing to do esp when the show has such a devoted fan following you have a chance of ostracizing all the viewers you do have, but if you wanna hang yourself.... But to create a contract which ties MGM's hands and says you can't produce on another network is venomous. How selfish can you get? I understand it just business, but Showtime wasn't that greedy. Or maybe it's insecurity. Sci fi scared that the one thing people actually tune in for might continue to do well if they cut it? What *ussies. If they really do put wrestling there I swear to God....Who the f watches wresting anyway? I'm so tired of that dreck.
Anyway, does anyone know how this will affect the story arc? I assume they already have most of them taped already and prolly the scripts for most if not all. How rushed will the last 8 or so eps feel? Damn I hate network control.
|They need to finish the Ori arc first. |
That's the biggest problem with story-driven shows. They often get cancelled before the story is over. See Invasion, Sliders, etc. (and especially Threshold)
They'd better not do that to SG-1.
|SciFi won't allow MGM to sell the show to any other US Networks. I don't think the show is streching story lines concidering its a whole new enemy that operates in a whole new way. With new cast members to help with the new enemy. But if SciFi won't allow the show to continue on another network they really and truely suck and I hate the idiots. If they won't allow the show to continue else where they really don't give a hell about the fans at all. Thats why I say SciFi sucks because they cancel it and say no you can't take it else wear.|
What I meant to say is that I think SG-1 is one of the greatest shows ever to brace the airwaves, but if it continues into another ten seasons, it might eventually just become another mindless, tedious, and repetitive show, just like all the other new dramas, on, say, ABC for example.
