More Cancellation News, Comments...

The Solutions Blog is one of the places I go to look for updates, and they are doing a good job of rounding up coverage of all this:

http://stargate-sg1-solutions.com/blog/


New up there today are links to E! Online's article ("In a statement long on plaudits (i.e., “worldwide phenomenon”) and short on specifics, Sci Fi said it was canceling SG-1 because, well, it just was.")... Maureen Ryan of the Chicago Tribune ("A shabby axing for an interstellar show.")... a very brief statement by MS...

And, of most substance, a link to TV Guide Insider, with the first statements from Brad Wright: "While executive producer Brad Wright tells TV Guide his "dream is to take SG-1 back to the feature it began as," we are now hearing that MGM may produce a series of TV-movies based on the mother-ship series." (n.b. I would feel better if the article confirmed from whom it was hearing the latter -- from BW? From Pryor at MGM, whom it then quotes? Or...?)

"Pondering the idea of at least one movie, Wright says that the show's finale — the last 10 episodes should begin unspooling around March — "should be a very satisfying end to the season, but not necessarily an end to SG-1 by any means."

Hmm.

ETA: From the Province, more words from RCC:

"Cooper says a good guess would be an SG-1 miniseries, made-for-TV movie or even a feature. Good news for the 200-or-so crew that work on the show."


ETA2: Be sure to go look at fantasygoat's post today.

See above: just added another link to new comments by RCC. Pushing the news forward incrementally.

It's true, it seems as if there's a good bit of buzz about the cancellation. And I am pleased to see that just about every damned article that mentions it does not fail to mention the absolutely abysmal timing of the axe-drop, and to say WTF SciFi?
