That was true prior the writers strike, as a full final season of BSG was assured. Now though, ratings will most certainly have a bearing in whether or not they bother to pick up production on the last half of the year once the strike is over. The ratings matter, end of story. It doesn't matter how 'outdated' fans bleat the system is.
It's a good thing the ratings don't matter then.
From a simple syndication perspective, SciFi would be fucking nuts
not to let RDM finish the story. Especially considering they're only ~ 10 episodes away from the end.
Of course, maybe I am
wrong and we won't get an ending. But that would almost be worth it for the irony alone. So close yet so far, just like TOS.
