I have to admit, I didn't expect to have a season 6. Still sucks to be right, though.

Sums up my feelings on the subject pretty well.

So, Galactica and Atlantis end this season. That's two down.

^Well, they're showing WWE Raw on Monday too.

They've got Sanctuary, Caprica and a few other things but they just canceled their highest rated show. I know they've been talking about moving away from being a purely Science Fiction channel for a long time but it looks like they're finally going to do it.

I'll never understand the logic behind that move.

Again, it doesn't look like it was SciFi. Apparently, they wanted to keep the show going. It looks like it was MGM that pulled the plug this time.

Dang, I thought it would it had at least one more season in it. How soon will the third SG series get on the air? 2010?

Which is why this is all so suspect. It's like they killed Atlantis in order to start up Universe.

Re: Stargate Atlantis CANCELLED

The season finale/100th episode which is called "Enemy At The Gates" has not been filmed yet, in fact they have another four episodes to film by my reckoning, but I suspect that TPTB have known about this for a while. So although it'll be a cliffhanger I would guess its one they know they can wrap up in 2 hours.

Indeed. Everything I'm reading seems to suggest that this was MGM's decision not SciFi's, they want to concentrate on their new baby Universe and they figured that as the SG1 movies have surpassed expectations sales wise that they can make a nice side profit by adding a few SGA movies to the mix.

Personally I'm sad to see it finish, I'd love for it to have got another season, but I'm not surprised, its lasted much longer than some of the TV shows I've watched over the years.

ANy word on SG:U? Cast, start date, that kinda thing?

If Skiffy wanted to keep broadcasting SG:A, MGM would have kept making it, I think.

I haven't been compelled to watch SG:A this season, but it's always been on my catch-up list. Bit sad.

My understanding about the second half of the season...



I consider the Wraith to be the whole series enemy and would want the DVD movie to be about them, not the Asuran Replicators or anyone else.
