Stargate Universe
Robert Carlyle's sci-fi TV show Stargate Universe has been cancelled after two seasons.

The series, a spin-off from popular 1994 film Stargate, will come to an end in the spring following the broadcast of the final episodes of season two.

Carlyle won a Best Actor prize for his role in the show at the 2010 Gemini Awards.

The news comes following the axe of another show on the Syfy network, Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica, which was halted mid-season in October due to falling ratings, with the final episodes due for broadcast in January.

Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica has been axed after less than a year on TV screens.

The Syfy network show, starring Eric Stoltz, debuted in January and returned to the small screen this month after a mid-season hiatus.

However, fans will now have to wait until next year to see the final five episodes of season one - TV bosses have axed the series with immediate effect amid declining viewing figures.

Syfy network spokesman Mark Stern says, "We appreciate all the support that fans have shown for Caprica and are very proud of the producers, cast, writers and the rest of the amazing...

The Syfying Of Science Fiction Is Both Good & Bad

August 29th, 2009 2:00pm EDT
True Blood
Everyone seems really into vampires lately. Sexy vampires that have steamy vampire sex with each other all the time. If not vampires than it's people with psychic abilities (Psych) or people that travel through alternate dimensions. And that's just on television. These days a major blockbuster movie can't make a return without aliens (District 9), killer robots (Transformers) or wizards (Harry Potter). We live in a time where Quentin Tarantino is playing with alternate history (Inglourious Basterds) and weepy chick flicks are about time travel (The Time Traveler's Wife).

August 27th, 2009 1:59pm EDT
Big Fan
In Big Fan, comedian Patton Oswalt plays a huge New York Giants fan. The problem is, he doesn't exactly root for a team on Sunday in real life.

Big Fan has been riding a wave of buzz since its Sundance Film Festival debut - even drawing implications of a Golden Globe or Oscar nod. "I honestly don't know what to do when you're nominated. I'm assuming they send a car for you, and you go to some parties.

"I'd be...

Learn More About SyFy's New Drama And 'BSG' Spinoff 'Caprica'

Caprica
Long ago, in a popular culture period far, far away, to watch or read science fiction was synonymously tied to the then derogatory term of 'geek'. Now that stereotype has somewhat weakened. One of the many reasons for this change was the Ron Moore reimagining of 'Battlestar Galactica' in 2004. 'BSG' was a hit not just amongst the typical sci-fi fan base, as it is most commonly discussed as a space opera, but to more non-traditional fans. When 'Heroes' debuted on NBC it was a break in network format. Many questioned why it was not to air on the sister channel, then, Sci-Fi, and spurred d...
