"The fourth and final season of "Galactica" will kick off in November with "Razor," an extended two-hour episode, with the rest of the season slated to run beginning in early 2008.

Sci Fi executive vp original programming Mark Stern said the channel's brass "respect the producers' decision to end the series.""

All too often, shows that should have a finite scope and plan on an ending push too long.  It is good to see that they are going to bring the story to a close, but I wonder if they ran it one season too long.  I tried getting into the third season and, frankly, could not.

I just started watching it via the now famous tv.uk link site

I'm about halfway through the third season.  It's still pretty interesting.  Some parts of the show are dragging because of a lot of soap opera stuff and lack of new, fresh characters.  It's cool to see Dean Stockwell having a good time on this show and it's too bad Lucy Lawless has been typecast because she's still a knock-out.   Buggedout  I'd like to see her in other shows/movies (not SciFi Channel fare).

I'm looking forward to the final season...At least Galactica is not going to keep you waiting or goes on for too long so the series ends without any resolution.

Have you noticed when the cylons aren't around the show tends to drag quite a bit. 

I really liked Tighs comments on discovering he is a Cylon, basically " I don't give a frak, I'm Saul Tigh and that's who I'm staying."


I am interested in seeing what Earth they are going to find (timewise).

My own theory is that the things they found pointing to Earth are actually bread crumbs left by people from Earth going to Kobal.

Thanks for the spoiler...I haven't finished watching the 3rd season yet...  Lookingup

But you know when a show is getting desperate when they start to have all these sudden revalations that make next to no sense.  (i.e.- Snape really being a bad guy the whole time...even though he could have aced Harry Potter when he showed up at the school in the first book).

It's like Lionel Hutz on the Simpsons.  When he was a losing a case Homer or Marge (I forget which) asks him what he's going to do..."Suprise witnesses.  Each one more suprising than the last!"

Nah, what will happen is that they come across present day earth, take one good look around and head back.

Cheez, not even the Cylons are this fraked up.

You don't actually think that Snape is a bad guy, do you?!   Buggedout

I think the timing is about right.  The show is running out of steam.

I watched the New BSG, and I must say that I am glad it is ending.  I watched and loved the orginal one with Loren Green.  He was a bad MFR.

Just my two cents.

A show like this, with its overall plot, can only go on for so long. So I'm not really all that disappointed.

and it's too bad Lucy Lawless has been typecast because she's still a knock-out.   Buggedout  I'd like to see her in other shows/movies (not SciFi Channel fare).

Me too.
