For all you BSG fans out there

Looks like you might be forced to sit through some episodes of The Flash. Okay, it doesn't entirely suck, but it isn't very good. Anyway, excerpt:

Beginning in October, SCI FI will air Battlestar Galactica "mini-sodes" entitled "Razor" during episodes of the hit series Flash Gordon, Fridays at 9 p.m. The two-to-three-minute shorts will lead into the Nov. 24 premiere of "Razor," the two-hour Battlestar special TV movie, which will tell the story of Lee Adama's (Jamie Bamber) first mission as commander of the Battlestar Pegasus and will reveal the story of how Adm. Cain (Michelle Forbes) served her ship during the original Cylon attack on the Colonies. "Razor," which airs at 9 p.m., will provide a backdrop to events in the rest of Battlestar, which returns for its fourth and final season in early 2008.

Hit series The Flash? What, exactly, constitutes "hit" ratings for a SciFi original series? Mind you, I've liked quite a few of them, but I think that it's a question worth asking. Whenever a series is touted as "must see" or "surefire hit" on network TV, I can almost guarantee that it's destined for the round file.

If I'm right, they'll also be aired as webisodes of some sort. I read a news article a bit ago referring to them. Now if I can only find that article again...
