Life as we know it is over.

I just got the most heartbreaking news: Stargate SG1 has been cancelled. During the filming of the 10th season, the cast and crew were informed that no new seasons will be made. For those of you who don't know what stargate is, it is the single greatest television show on the face of the earth. This is indeed a tragedy worse than the Black Plague, Hiroshima, and the Holocaust combined.

And to add insult to injury: the network told them the news while celebrating the shows 200th episode. Fox did the exact same thing to Angel after they filmed their 100th episode. Why are network producers such dickheads?

The true tragedy is that the show is being cut short just as it's entering a whole new saga with new characters and new villains. In some ways, the show is getting the boot just as things were getting really interesting. In the early days, SG1 always seemed to achieve the best possible outcome for any crisis, but against the mighty Ori in the 9th season, they were lucky to get out of any confrontation alive. We were all just beginning to see the dark side to space exploration.

Well, at least we still have Stargate Atlantis. We can only hope to see all or part of SG1 in the pegasus galaxy in the years to come.
