What the FRAK?!

I feared the news coming, and it has. Next year's 22 episode order of The Best Show on Television, Battlestar Galactica, will be its last. First, we'll get a two hour "Pegasus" movie in November, followed by the show returning in 2008 to conclude one of the best told tales ever to grace the small screen.

Other strange news coming from TVland: David Greenwalt, responsible for helping Joss Whedon create and run Angel, has been tapped to be the showrunner for CBS's shameless Angel rip-off Moonlight. Wha? Huh? Isn't this like getting Gene Roddenberry to produce Lost in Space? Or David Shore to run 3 Lbs? Maybe he'll have the talent to reshape it into something watchable, but right now this just strikes me as all kinds of wrong.

Bad day to wake up as a genre fan.
