V GONE, STARGATE GONE, WHAT NEXT?

NOW V IS OFFICIALLY DEAD, WE HAVE LOST STARGATE UNIVERSE AS WELL, BOTH SHOWS HAVING UPPED THE ANTI SINCE THEIR CRAPPY FIRST SEASONS AND HAVE TURNED INTO MUST SEE TV. ARE THE EXECUTIVES WATCHING THE SHOWS OR THE FIGURES? CUTTING COSTS FOR MORE SHIT REALITY TV OR ANOTHER BLOODY COP/HOSPITAL/LAWYER DRAMA? POOR ANGEL WAS CUT SHORT IN HIS PRIME AS WAS ENTERPRISE. THE LAST TWO SEASONS OF THAT SHOW WERE OUTSTANDING YET RUBBISH LIKE ANDROMEDA WENT FOR 5 YEARS. YES, IT WAS DUE TO CABLE LIKE STARGATE AND IN SOME WAYS, AT LEAST WE HAD SCIFI OUT THERE. ANYONE REMEMBER ODYSSEY 5, ONE OF THE MOST COMPELLING SHOWS EVER YET IT WAS DROPPED AFTER ONE SEASON. THE STORY WAS GRIPPING, THE CHARACTERS LOVEABLE AND PERFORMANCES OUTSTANDING. IN CASE YOU SON’T REMEMBER IT STARRED ROBOCOPĀ HIMSELF, PETER WELLER, AND I CAN’T THINK OF ONE DUD EPISODE. EVEN DOCTOR WHO DIED BECAUSE THE EXECUTIVES COULDN’T CARE LESS ANYMORE UNTIL RUSSELL T DAVIES SHOWED THEM THE WAY. COME ON EXECUTIVES, THINK TWICE BEFORE DROPPING THE AXE.
