Stargate cancelled?

I saw a Stargate SG-1 fan, and the first thing he said to me was, "Have you heard the news?" Well, I couldn't figure out which news: there was no 9/11-type of incident occuring, and there's just so much bad news out there, I don't know what's important sometimes.

And then he told me: Stargate SG-1 has been cancelled. Wow, no surprise there: it was going downhill when some of the actors were scaling back and they added the party slut to the show--I talked about it when I noticed the decline. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to watch it for a while because Comcast yanked it from regular cable, but I doubt I've been missing much. What made the show good was the chemistry of the cast and the interesting storylines and history/mythology.

The problem is, I can't find any official information about the cancellation, which makes me wonder if it's just a rumor. But the guy I was talking to is a big fan, so he probably has acquired a good tip from somewhere reputable.

I actually buy full season DVDs for my father. I never liked it that much. He thinks it is the greatest show ever.

At first, I didn't like it--I used to watch it with my husband but fell asleep, and if I managed to stay awake, it seemed campy and strange. But when I moved and got cable, I watched so many episodes that I ended up liking it. Same thing with DS9--I watched enough to appreciate it.

I'd be surprised if your dad still likes it.

Oh no say it ain't so. I hope it is just a rumor. I like the show, even the slutty gal heheheheehe:)

Because I don't have access to it, I don't know if her character is slutty, but she certainly aspires to being a party slut. Or they've directed her to be like that--surprise surprise!
