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:


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."


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.

In a very limited way, I can tell you why it matters to me even if it's not Original Four.

Even if Jack's not there, he's still there in the universe. So on an in-story level, I tend to think of it as, what we see happening on the show, the story, still matters *to him*. Most particularly because Daniel's there, of course. But on a general level, as well. He's still in the fight, somewhere.

My preferred focus isn't S9-S?, of course. Fic-wise, I mean. But I have this completionist streak in me. I *want to know*. Particularly when there is always this chance (likelihood, even) of Jack popping back up in canon.

So if there were a movie/mini that was being made for the sake of giving the overall plotline a better ending than the end of S10 permits, I'll watch it for that sake of completion, even if it turns out for whatever reason that the Team isn't reassembled and RDA wasn't able to do it (or was only able to do a quick cameo). No, it won't be quite as enjoyable to me. But I'd still want to know how it went.
