Big budget series and cable TV stations usually don't mix. But hand it to the producers of 'Battlestar Galactica' for getting a lot of miles out of their remake of the sci-fi classic. Reports from the producers angle to next season being the last and that's probably a wise decision.
The good part of this is that they can go out on a high note. Ratings have dropped but the show is still popular.
