Joe Mallozzi Exec Producer of Stargate Atlantis (who also blogs on WordPress) has opened up about the cancellation of Stargate Atlantis. I don’t understand why he didn’t fight more.

I don’t understand why this awesome writer would give up on the fans that support the show week in and week out.

It’s been a bittersweet couple of days. On the one hand, I’m sorry to see the series end but, on the other hand, I’m extremely proud of what we’ve accomplished. 100 episodes is pretty damn impressive feat and, as evidenced by the quality of recent stories and the uptick in the ratings, we’ll be going out on a high. Even though I see a lot of anger directed at both MGM and Sci Fi, the fact is we couldn’t have done it without their support.

Mallozzi titled his post “All Good Things…” but this is not an All Good Things…ending. With Star Trek TNG the show was not canceled mid-season. No matter what Mallozzi writes, we the fans should be angry and upset at the way that Sc Fi channel treats Sci Fi fans. It’s just not right.

That said – Mallozzi deserves our respect and admiration for the openness that he shows on his blog and for the quality show that Stargate Atlantis truly is. While the journey has been shorter than it should have been, it’s been quite a ride.

While we know there will be a Stargate Atlantis movie..we still don’t know when Stargate Universe (the third Stargate TV series) will air – or even on which network it will show up on. Let’s hope that we’ll find out soon and the idiots that run Sci Fi channel won’t be involved in it either.
