Bye Bye Battlestar Galactica

It is announced that the low-rated but critically and fan boy worshipped "Battlestar Galactica" will sign off next year after its fourth season, producers said Thursday.

This however is not very shocking news as rumors were rampant on the web that this would happen.
Also the last season was heading towards a conclusion at the end of season 4, and to drag it out would not be cohesive. Besides as I have always asked:
Isn’t it better to end something on a high note and wanting more, than to drag it out so long that no one is interested?

Despite some of the best reviews for any show on TV -- and a fiercely loyal fan base -- "Battlestar" is an extremely expensive show to produce, especially for a cable net. Sci Fi has tried to turn that buzz into bigger ratings, but the show never seemed to break out beyond a core niche. However there is always DVD. I am guessing that like " Firefly " , “Battlestar” will get a loyal and stronger fan base with DVD sales/rentals

Exec producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick issued a joint statement saying it was their decision to end the series.

"This show was always meant to have a beginning, a middle and, finally, an end," producers said. "Over the course of the last year, the story and the characters have been moving strongly toward that end, and we've decided to listen to those internal voices and conclude the show on our own terms."
Producers promised to end the show "with a bang."

Sure I wish it would go on forever, but it can’t and it is probably one of the best TV shows to EVER grace the screen. I have raved about it so often that I have no words left aside from BRING ON SEASON 4!!!!!!!!!
