A lament for cancelled science fiction television

Referencing SGU and Caprica (and for me also Flashforward, SCC, Dark Angel, and alas too many others), Carmen says it so beautifully in this well written piece.
"Science fiction is one of the most thought-provoking genres out there with the potential to tell good stories—which, among other things, explore what it means to be human. It gets at who we are and why we do the things we do and takes us down the roads those choices lead. It tells us something about ourselves, the reality we live in, the people around us. It invites us to reflect on our lives, provokes us to examine what we believe and why, and helps us think through the issues facing us in our own lives"
