Battlestar Galactica: "We're Going Out with a Bang"

Geeks, squids, pseudovirgins, conches and neo-maxie-sum-Dweebies worldwide will be higher-strung than usual tomorrow when Sci-Fi Channel announces that this upcoming season will be the Sci-Fi hits last. So, we ask you -- we plead with you -- take it easy on the IT guys on Friday. They will be edgy. Their panties -- or, rather, their Boba Fett Underoos -- might get into a twist.

Commiserate with them by the water cooler. Remind them of their glory days as Mathletes. Buy them a Malted. Light their Benson and Hedges cigarette. This is a big thing for them. Hug them out, Bitch. They need "Big Geek Love." Supply that love with a reference to the Kessel Run and you'll have won the good karma lottery. From HollywoodReporter:

"The upcoming fourth season of Sci Fi Channel's 'Battlestar Galactica' will be its final one after all.

After months of speculation, the show's producers will make the announcement at a press conference Friday.

"Ending 'Battlestar' with the upcoming 22-episode fourth season was a creative decision made by the show's executive producers Ronald Moore and David Eick.

"'This show was always meant to have a beginning, a middle and finally, an end,' Eick and Moore said in a statement Thursday. 'Over the course of the last year, the story and the characters have been moving strongly toward that end and we've decided to listen to those internal voices and conclude the show on our own terms. And while we know our fans will be saddened to know the end is coming, they should brace themselves for a wild ride getting there - we're going out with a bang.'"

It's like School on Saturday ..
