Is SGA a victim of the SG-1 DVDs success?  
So, as I'm sure you've heard by now, SGA will not go to a sixth season and instead, like SG-1, we'll have TV movies instead. The weird thing though is it seems it's MGM who've made that decision, not SCI-FI.

Which has got me wondering: is this due to the success of the SG-1 DVD movies? We know they have sold exceptionally well but profit wise I wonder if they actually make more sense than a series does. Making a whole series is damn expensive. If the movie is cheaper, easier and still makes they a shed load of money, have they decided this is the better option? Especially with the actors having got to season 6 and those salaries climbing?

(PS - My post-Hamlet post will be here as soon as I've gone and painted some doors)

Dunno ;o( Just trying not to get upset about all this cancellation, but it makes me so angry

This, is a very good point. Things are getting more expensive - heck, Eureka, which is only on season 3, has started product placement to off-set costs. Mind you SGA seemed to have done a deal with Evian at one point (I don't think they did, but we saw a lot of Evian)....

It's a shame, and now a few hours later, I am resigned. I'd prefer 20x45mins, but we're not getting that. C'est la vie.

Who knows? Right now I'm just very sad. At least there will be a movie and possibly more in the future but it won't be the same as having a new ep each week.

That was my first thought too
