I was certainly pretty impressed with the first season, on the whole. I've not seen the second, yet, but I certainly intend to. Anyway, following the usual rule of US network Scifi, it must be good - they cancelled it after only two seasons

I've heard the explanations for that - the big networks are the only ones who can afford to take chances commissioning risky scifi shows, but the reason they are big is because they only keep shows going that generate multi-millions of income and none of these scifi shows can do that. Kind of chicken and egg thing which is a real shame.
Is Battle Star Galactica the highest earning and therefore longest running scifi? Put another way, is BSG the only scifi show ever to make it all the way to a proper conclusion?
I suppose star trek / next gen / voyager / deepSpace9 must be the biggest earning most popular scifi. But those shows were all over the place in terms of quality and story lines. I suppose there was Babylon5 too, that had a fairly consistent plot and ran for a long time.
