From SyFy, and I've been wondering when the dollar's slide would start hitting Vancouver productions:

Mallozzi, the "Atlantis" show runner, has stated in his blog that five years may be the limit for franchise shows in the future. He cited the fact that the rising Canadian dollar versus the U.S. dollar is becoming an expensive way to make Vancouver-produced shows like those in the "Stargate" family.
The ratings were decent, so it must be the exchange rate that was the nail in the coffin.
I can understand that that might make Canadian shows more expensive but why does this specifically limit them to 5-year runs?
maybe a 100 episodes for syndication? any more seasons than that, things have to be renegotiated I guess.
