Brad Wright's Take on the End of Stargate: Atlantis

Gateworld interview with Brad Wright

I'm not a Stargate: Atlantis fan, but can empathize with people losing a show they love. As with Farscape, Stargate: SG1, and Battlestar Galactica before it, there is a lot of finger pointing and blame being thrown around for who is responsible for the end of the series. Given the current nature of the entertainment industry, I tend to believe that most, if not all, of what Brad is saying is true. What most interested me in the interview is further confirmation that we will be seeing more Stargate films (YAY!) and that a "final cut" of 'Children of the Gods' is on it's way.

In other news, yes, I am up at 2am because I laid down for a short nap around 6 and slept until 10:30. ::head desk::

That's why naps are dangerous.

I've got to say, with ratings for TV shows being on the decline across the board, and the increasing adoption of DVRs, the direct pay-to-watch business model of the movies, where the studios make money when people buy the content outright rather than going through the convoluted broadcast-and-advertising process, seems to be something a lot of people are looking at.
It seems to me the direct-to-DVD market is booming. And with certain aging shows experiencing declining ratings, yet still holding on to a die hard core fanbase, I can this happening more and more.
