BSG Prequel Series Caprica Canceled

Kethinov writes “The sci-fi TV series Caprica, a prequel spinoff from Battlestar Galactica, was just canceled by the Syfy channel. In response to the cancellation and the recent theme of many similar good sci-fi shows getting canceled over the last few years, I’ve written an editorial arguing that Caprica’s cancellation reflects the decreasing sustainability of the cable TV business model. A better, more modern business model could have saved Caprica from cancellation. If this model is adopted in the future, it could save many other similar niche genre shows from the same fate down the road.” Another perspective here might be that a boring, ponderous show got yoinked because nobody watched it. Just sayin’
