The more I think about it, the more one thing about last month's Battlestar Galactica finale sticks out at me: It had a happy ending. And that still seems odd, unexpected and almost unfair. Why?
I had a thought while avoiding this week's three-hour series finale of medical drama er; why don't science fiction shows last fifteen seasons? Does all SF TV (Doctor Who aside) have a seven year limit?
Watching last week's Dollhouse, one thing became clear: its main flaw isn't actually the show itself but the fact that, at its heart, it's not really a TV series. Or, at least, it shouldn't be.
