Stargate: SG1, Atlantis, and now the Universe

Battlestar Galactica final season expands

The Chicago Tribune Reports that the final portion of Battlestar Galactica will likely air in the first quarter of 2009 and that the final episode will be expanded to three hours. Additionally, it seems that at least one more Battlestar Galactica movie (similar to BSG: RAZOR) will be produced. It is unfortunate that such an acclaimed series has been plagued with these annoying mid-season breaks.
