Stargate SG-1 Cancelled

http://www.gateworld.net/news/2006/08/istargate_sg-1i_cancelled_iatlan.shtml

Whoa! I didn't see that coming... well, I didn't see that coming *today*, anyway.

I... need to process. I need to read more.

It wasn't that I wasn't expecting it, really.

Still, I need a hug. (just a little one)

*hugs* It is sad. I mean, I'm basically okay with it--I've been preparing myself since I first saw the ratings, and it did get ten years--but still. Sniff.

Yeah. I felt prepared. I truly do think that this feels this upsetting *right now* primarily because I had just immersed myself in massive show-love over the weekend thanks to "200" and attendant stuff. I think I'd have felt less choked-up about it... at a slightly different time.

*hugs* It's okay. God, and I was feeling so ood after watching 200.

Yeah, you know, I think that is what is making it hurt the most. That was really quite a high.

It is something of a slap after the squee that 200 produced; trust SFC to get the timing entirely wrong (again). But yeah, not completely surprising.

{{hugs}}

I feel for y'all who've been into the show for years and years, I really do. Your show!

Yeah, the timing is the worst part of this, actually. It's not like I wasn't prepared for it, in a whole lot of ways.

Though you could *perhaps* argue that the timing may work out better in the long run. I was just reading something today about them having yet to write the last few eps of the season, and them holding off to see whether it would be a season or a series finale. Obviously THEY saw the writing on the wall, too.

If an announcement NOW does give them time to wrap it up better, then, great. Hell, I bet they can even get RDA back one last time. :P Given the circumstances.

*HUGS YOU BACK *SO* HARD*!!!

I really, really thought I was better prepared for this.

Well I need a huge hug. *glomps you* I'm so pissed at the crappy, clueless, tasteless timing of the announcement -- to cast and crew, and to us.
eregyrn
Aug. 21st, 2006 10:06 pm (UTC)
Yes. Amen to that. BAH!

The only bright side to it is that the timing MIGHT indeed make a difference to their being able to do up a proper series finale, now. They have at least 2 eps totally unwritten and I believe 18 is in an early stage.

Given the timing, they MIGHT be able to pull something out, go out in style.

It still hurts, though. Was really riding *such* a high from the weekend, and... POOP!

*HUGS BACK*

It has been 'pass a hug to your fellow Stargate fan' time on LJ for a few hours ;)

I am very sad about this. I still enjoyed the show. I did not want it to end.

Honestly? I think this season has been about SciFi setting SG-1 up for cancellation. So while I'm upset, I'm not surprised.
eregyrn
Aug. 22nd, 2006 12:44 am (UTC)
No, totally. The only thing that surprises me about this, I meant, was the timing of announcing it today (after the "celebration", or "good times", if you will, surrounding the 200th ep) -- or, as it transpired, that SciFi would tell Bridge about it on the day of the damned party for "200". What, do the people at SciFi sit around and TRY to think what the worst possible timing for such an announcement would be?

Otherwise, yeah. The writing was there on the wall. I was definitely seeing it. SciFi was sending out signals right and left, honestly. Possibly also, as you say, setting it up in such a way so as to make their cancellation of it look natural, if you will. I'm not 100% sure *why*, but then I'm also not a fan who's going to say she's utterly shocked by it, so... yeah.

Ah!! No!!!

I mean, yes, I have like four seasons to catch up on still (darn my tv reception!), but aaaaaaahhhh! *pouts*

Also, I want to read the scrapped 'finale' scripts they wrote to end each season when they thought they were being cancelled - are they available anywhere, do you know?
eregyrn
Aug. 22nd, 2006 12:51 am (UTC)
Yeah, just get the DVDs. ;-)

I don't know that any of the previous "finale" scripts are available -- I think that they each just sort of got reworked very quickly. Like, I know that the finale of S6, "Full Circle", was the hastily-rewritten thing that they had originally intended to do as a post-series tv-movie (or feature film, either one).
