Bye bye, BSG

Battlestar Galactica will end after season 4.
The producers of SCI FI Channel's Battlestar Galactica confirmed that the upcoming fourth season will be the show's last. Executive producers Ronald Moore and David Eick said that it was a creative decision to end the acclaimed series with the upcoming 22-episode season.

"This show was always meant to have a beginning, a middle and, finally, an end," Eick and Moore said in a statement on May 31. "Over the course of the last year, the story and the characters have been moving strongly toward that end, and we've decided to listen to those internal voices and conclude the show on our own terms. And while we know our fans will be saddened to know the end is coming, they should brace themselves for a wild ride getting there: We're going out with a bang."

In November, a special two-hour Battlestar episode, "Razor," will air. The fourth season kicks off in early 2008.

First Veronica Mars now BSG? What is the TV world coming to? Here's my question: If there are so many new "geek" shows debuting this Fall, why are all the original geek shows going off air?

As much as I love BSG, I've seen too many shows go on too long and ruin themselves. Now the actors, writers, etc who are involved can go on to do other great things. I'm glad to hear there's a creatively motivated end to the show.

Yeah it's like they're learning how to get through to us AS THEY SYSTEMATICALLY DISMANTLE THE SYSTEM THAT TAUGHT THEM THIS. I'll miss BSG.
