Battlestar Galactica Coming to a Close

Now, I’m not currently watching the Sci-Fi phenomenon known as “Battlestar Galactica,” but I know that it has a pretty strong cult following and have heard from enough people who know my TV tastes that I would totally love it. And if this screen-grab is any indication of what the show is like on a regular basis, then Jesus H. Christ, sign me up for the first petition! Alas, it looks like it is too late, as executive producers, Ronald Moore and David Eick recently released a statement that sounds like a “Dear John” letter to fans:

”This show was always meant to have a beginning, a middle and, finally, an end. 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.”

For those of you who are following the show closely and are crushed at this news, I know that nothing I say will make you feel any better about what is happening. But I can do my best to sympathize, because I know how painful it was for me when…(come on, Lisa, just get through this)…my beloved “Arrested Development” went off the air. I’m lighting a Jesus candle for you guys as we speak. But don’t stop watching, because maybe there’s hope yet…
