SG1 cancelled

Three days after celebrating a record-setting 200th episode, Stargate SG1 was given the axe by the SciFi channel.

The 10th season will be the last for the franchise, which will end its run with 215 episodes.

Stargate SG1 stated on Showtime before jumping ship to SciFi before its sixth season. The show was a ratings winner out of the gate and may have lead to the cancellation of the far superior in every way Farscape. However, over the past several seasons, ratings have eroded and the show hasn't pulled in the critical and fan buzz that Battlestar Galactica has.

On a good news side, Stargate: Atlantis was renewed for a fourth sesaon. And the cancellation of SG1 makes room for the proposed Battlestar Galactica spin-off Caprica as well as more seasons of Doctor Who as they become available.

There is a proposed spin-off to BSG and all you say about is a throw away comment like that? For shame.

I must know more.
