Stargate SG-1 "200th" and a special announcement

This Friday was the 200th episode of Stargate SG-1. I did TiVo the pre-show, which (at times) was really funny. I especially liked the outtake clip where Carter was belittling O’Neil while they were shooting the "Solitudes" Episode. In this episode, O'Neil and Carter are stranded in an Ice Cave trying to chip the ice away of the DHD, so they can "dial" home. “

- Outtake from “Solitudes”. Jack and Sam are digging out the DHD. TAPPING (as Carter): You spent seven years on MacGuyver and you can’t figure this one out? We’ve got belt buckles and shoelaces and a piece of gum – build a nuclear reactor, fer cryin’ out loud! You used to be MacGuyver, MacGadget, MacGimmick, now you’re Mr MacUseless! Dear *God* - I’m stuck on a glacier with *MacGuyver*!


I saw this announcement this morning and it has totally destroyed my day. 'Stargate: SG-1' Cancelled

Ant writes "The Sci-Fi channel has announced that it will not be renewing its (very popular) original series Stargate SG-1 for another season.The spinoff series Stargate: Atlantis will get the nod, though, airing for a fourth year. SG-1 aired its 200th episode on August 18th, and the SF series is the longest-running SF show on American television." Gateworld has further details: "New episodes of both Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis continue Fridays this summer starting at 9 p.m. Eastern/Pacific, leading up to the mid-season finale on September 22. The second half of the season will begin in March, leading to SG-1's final bow on SCI FI in June."

Liz and I are both great fans of both Atlantis and SG-1 and always look forward to Sci-Fi Friday. We also own all of the SG-1 DVD sets through Season 8. I do have to say that they have had a good long run and will be missed.
