A friend of mine checked in on my blog and told me he was a bit disappointed there weren't any Battlestar Galactica posts. What can I say? The man is right! So Battlestar starts again this week, only they've changed the day on us. It now airs on Sundays. Over at Sci-fi Signal they mentioned that the day change may have to do with sliding ratings. *gasp* Is this true? Granted, I don't think this season has been quite as good as in the past, but come on! It's still probably the best sci-fi show on TV. Where the heck are the viewers? Aren't there enough of us sci-fi geeks to keep the show afloat? Several people have mentioned that the sci-fi channel is kind of ruthless when it comes to their shows. Even high rated shows don't get the budgets they deserve and can get the ax fairly easily. Should we be worried about BSG? Is there anything a fan can do? It seems like sci-fi shows always get short shrift in television. So many good shows never seem to get the run they deserve. I loved the show Firefly and still harbor the delusional hope that the show may still come back someday. What do guys think is going to happen to BSG? Do you think the writers can bring the show back to its original excellence (maybe re-writing Starbuck's character would help) or do you think it'll end up fizzling out sooner than we'd like. Is there anything a fan can do? I don't want to lose my favorite show.
