Sci-Fi drops SG-1
Stargate SG-1 will finish its run on Sci-Fi after this season.

I'm not angry that Sci-Fi's dropping the show. Everything needs to end eventually, and with the low ratings, I knew this one was coming to a close.

What bothers me is that they're doing this now. With all of the plotlines SG-1 has, they need at least another season to resolve them all. Things need to be tied up. I think that MGM might be able to find another distributor for the show, but I'm still pissed at Sci-Fi for ending its run. The network is dropping SG-1 to push other shows that (in my opinion) don't have a snowball's chance in hell of achieving the type of longevity that SG-1 has.

And the thing is, they've been planning this, you can tell. I feel like if they had any intention of giving the show another season, they would have positioned Eureka before it, to grab new viewers. Nothing that they've been doing with Stargate in terms of timing and advertising makes sense if you look at it from the perspective of someone who wants to keep the show going. They've been planning this, the bastards. And they're not giving the show enough time to tie things up and finish with dignity, they're just tossing it out like so much trash. I am disappointed and annoyed and generally just miffed at the moment.
