SyFy Cancels Another Sci-Fi Series

Stargate Universe Season 2.jpg

?Are you a fan of science fiction TV shows? Then Syfy, the channel formerly known as SciFi, the channel devoted to showing science fiction, has a present for you!

Syfy will end its original
action-adventure series Stargate Universe when the show returns with the final
10 episodes of its second season in the Spring of 2011. The Stargate franchise
— consisting of Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe — has
aired on Syfy since 2002.

That present: A big ol’ punch to the dick. Yes, SyFy is ending yet another of its venerable franchises (they canceled Caprica about a month ago). I’m not a Stargate fan, but even if I were, I doubt I could manage to be that upset. SyFy is on a long, steady decline into being Spike TV’s shittier TV doppleganger, and there’s nothing anybody can do about it. You had a good run, SciFi Channel, and you will be missed. You may now air all the wrestling and Ghost Hunters spin-offs you want. Thanks to Jody S. for the tip.
