No more frakking BSG until 2009?!

Battlestar GalacticaI mean seriously, what the frak? Why the frak do we have to wait until frakking 2009 for the final frakking season of Battlestar frakking Galactica. Those motherfrakking skinjobs, and I know they're Cylons or they wouldn't do this to us, really like to frakking torture us diehard frakking fans, don't they. Frakkers! Wow, that does make it incredibly frakking easy to drop frakking curse words all the frakking time without really frakking cussing. How frakking liberating is that!

But back to business. Executive producer Ronald D. Moore spoke at a Wednesday night screening of this Friday's summer finale and broke the news that the remainder of this fourth and final season of BSG probably wouldn't air until early 2009. The show just doesn't want to have to face off against the new fall slates on the networks or football and baseball, which I guess I can understand. Why not wait until January so all you have to deal with is those crappy shows nobody watches like American Idol and 24? And nobody will be interested in the build-ups to the season finales of shows like Lost and Heroes. It's a frakking no-brainer!

Wow, I just finished watching tonight's episode. Great stuff. But why the wait until 2009?

Now I know what crackheads feel like when there's a drought (nobody has any dope). Frak! Don't the producers know that we Battlestar Galacticans are addicts? We need our fix!! Give us our fix and not six months or more of detox!

Give it!! :)

Technically, the season we are in IS the final season. We are just only seeing the first half of it this year.

You all probably know Raya from her two songs played on Battle Star Galactica, "Lord Knows I Would" and "All That Remains." If you are interested in listening or buying her new self titled album click below.

Just goes to show that SciFi has no idea what to do with a good show.

Why is this so crazy? It's six months people. We had to wait 7 months between seasons 2 and 3 and a whole year between season 3 and 4 (though we did have Razor to hold us over). 6 months is not too long folks.

Wonder if they are going to go back to the split season dvd release. Waiting until 09 would push a whole season set to probably late 09 depending when skiffy decides to air the last 10.

Yeah really interested in a Heroes finale buildup, about as exciting as watching paint dry when compared to Lost or BSG.

Out of curiosity, does anybody know about the UK? I knows like Stargate always returned before, or didn't have the breaks that these shows have during the summer or winter.

I agree with Akbar....especially about part E. The ratings should not matter since the show will not be returning. It must be that the advertisers (and sci-fi channel) want to have something good to prolong on their channel. Gotta make sure we don' t waste those commercials. Frak.

I think this crazy scheduling has everything to do with the impending SAG strike, which the industry was preparing for even before the WGA walked out. They're preparing for the "worst case scenario", that is, a strike that will last into 2009, wiping out winter sweeps. I see the Sci-Fi Channel/NBC-Universal actually taking a gamble and halfway hoping the strike lasts that long, so the ratings for the final 10 episodes are higher due to no competiton.

Another reason may be, strike permitting, to give the BSG prequel Caprica a stronger launch. I'm not sure when Caprica is going to hit, but wouldn't it benefit the Sci-fi Channel more if they were able to start Caprica, in the spring of 2009, immediately after BSG ends it's run?
