Only 10 Battlestar Episodes in 2008?!?

According to this article in Aint it Cool News, the SciFi channel will only be showing the first ten episodes of the final season of Battlestar Galactica starting in Feb 2008, and will hold the final 10 till Feb 2009! What the frak is up with that? The hiatus the show is currently on is killing the momentum it had, and this will only make it worse. And we don't even have a release date yet for Season 3 on DVD. Are they deliberately trying to kill the show?

And as if to mock us, the BBC just announced that they are skipping a year with Doctor Who. There will be only two or three specials in 2009, and the fifth season will run in 2010. Sigh.

Said the joker to the thief, can't get no relief

I'm so used to anime series that go for 13 episodes that I forgot that Galactica does 20 per season and stopped watching season 3 after episode 13. (Which did have something of a cliffhanger, just not a very good one.) When I realized my mistake, I found that the true season cliffhanger was much more impressive.
