Sci Fi Wire reports the good news!
SCI FI Channel announced that its hit original series Battlestar Galactica will return in October with a full 20-episode third season.

It's probably going to end with a cliff-hanger this Friday, and then it's a seven month wait until things are resolved!

I don't care what they say, a full season is 26 episoded. Anything less is, well less!

I would rather have 20 quality episodes than 26 mediocre episodes. This whole 26 episode thing is an invention of American TV as a means of stretching a TV show over a "season" thereby increasing advertising opportunities and revenue. I'll take quality over quantity any day.

Full seasons haven't been 26 episodes on the major American networks for about ten years now. The standard season is 22 episodes.

I initially had the temptation to gripe and say something about TV keeping to the French (or other European) work week/work year :) But, when you look at what goes into a show these days and compare it to the shows of many years ago, I think we get pretty good value, at least on the sci fi shows. Some of the scripts and parts seem very tough.
Twenty-six episodes of Lost in Space, or 20 episodes of the current BSG--seems like a no brainer to me :)
