Stargate SG-1 cancelled--I'm bummed

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

I just found out that Stargate SG-1 was cancelled and this is its final season. That really bums me out. I thoroughly enjoyed the series and it's one of two shows that S and I keep up with (the other being Stargate Atlantis--though I also watch Battlestar Galactica).

I realize that all things end eventually, but I've spent a good part of the last 4 or 5 years watching SG-1 episodes and thinking about the various predicaments they've been in. It's a great science fiction show on at a time when most shows are sitcoms and reality tv shows.

Anyhow, I'm bummed. It's irritating when companies cancel good shows because of results that are as likely to be results of poor business decisions than a poor show no one is interested in. I very much look forward to the time when more "tv shows" are less like they are now and more like vlogs which I can enjoy during downtime when it fits my schedule.
