Amidst all of our "Lost vs. Heroes" discussions, I have always felt that Battlestar Galactica was the best show currently on television. The season 3 finale just aired, and at the credits they said "returning in 2008".
WTF? That's nine months off from the show. It's absolutely astonishing to me that a good show, that is doing decently is going off for that log. I have no idea about for the reasons, but simply as a fan, I am very frustrated at the idea of waiting until next year to see a new episode.
Lost better keep on being stellar, because it has to cover 3 shows worth of goodness now. It's all I have for my scifi fix until Heroes comes back.
Well, the long hiatus makes me not so sad that I've missed the last month or so of episodes. Means I can wait, catch up/watch some other series and get the DVDs this summer and still have plenty of time to watch before things kick back up(Of course, I'll be travelling most of the summer and completely missing almost all the movies, so will also be busy catching up on all those too... just means I'll have plenty to watch in the fall).
As George RR Martin said (roughly): it's amazing that Sci-Fi Channel could royally screw up a great prior work like Ursula K. LeGuin's Earthsea saga, but take a piece of trash like Battlestar Galactica and make it into something this good.
I've only seen a few episode's (tuned in for the miniseries, but am not a regular TV watcher) and really enjoyed it.
As an aside, it's been an even longer hiatus for another sci-fi show... Futurama! I'm highly lookign forward to the new episodes.
