When I started watching the last episode of Atlantis Season 5 I didn't quite new they had already cancelled the show. In the last 90 sec that became really obvious because it was clear the story was supposed to be a cliffhanger and the finished it up real quick so it wasn't. A real shame because Atlantis was basically the last "old fashioned" sci-fi show. With old fashioned I mean every episode is basically a single entity with a thin red line connecting some of them together in a greater storyline.
Now I'm kind of lost what to whatch next. The only show that comes close to old fashioned scifi is Battlestar Galactica, BUT that show has been "soapified" so much it's also not that interesting really (soapified: Adding a lot of unnecesary stuff not relevant to the episode and not having independent episodes, only one very big storyline). If you watch 15min of any given BSG episode you will still know what's going on, whereas you miss 15min of an SG1/Atlantis show you'll be a bit clueless on how the story got to that point in the first place
It's a shame most new shows are soapified, take 24 for instance, you can tell the entire 24 episode storyline in a 2h movie and not skip a single bit of detail.
Anyone have some ideas on good new shows to watch?
