Battlestar Galactica? Ummmmm...who's out of the loop here, them or me?

Meaning: I thought that was coming back. Has it got the axe already or something?

P.S. Vote Firefly!!
Farscape and Battlestar Galactica are both coming back, as So I assume they mean as a show, or they are out of the loop indeed.
Um...Geeks in Space is not ficticious, it was an internet radio show put on by the slashdot gang once upon a time.
Geez, why bring back Babylon 5? It's supposed to be a 5 season show with a beginning, middle, and end. What's next? B5: The Next Generation? The Adventures of David Sheridan? Garibaldi, Corporate Tycoon?
Earth Final Conflict? You've got to be kidding.

I'd vote to bring back and Andromeda before it started to suck, but then again ... Firefly made me forget all about that. Not that it was a key factor, but anything with sound in space now just seems passť, which is pretty much everything. That aside, most everything pales in comparison to Firefly, sci-fi or no.
What was I-Man? I loved Sliders but it lose the plot when Rhys-Davies got killed off.
Firefly is by far the best of these shows but I guess I'm preaching to the converted saything that.

Rhys-Davies lives on the same island as me, well half the year anyway, I haven't seen him around yet though. Sliders definitely seemed worse after he left, kind of began to seem silly (well more silly).
