Editorial on sci-fi shows

A good editorial by SyFy Portal’s Wayne Hall about the future of sci-fi on TV (and apparently movies, as this year there was not a single one space-oriented major movie). Some excerpts:

“…the future of science-fiction on television is “Eureka,” not “Battlestar Galactica.” As costs to produce expensive shows like BSG continue to escalate, we’ll see more and more Earth-based shows like “Eureka,” […] ” The question is, is it science-fiction?” […] “But if every episode worries about how they are going to pay their bills and survive action-oriented plots, is that any different from a cop or mystery show?”

Worth a read.
