I started watching it this season because Ben Browder is on there now. I loved him in Farscape but when it got cancelled i swore i would never watch that crappy Sci-Fi channel again, but when i heard Ben Browder was going to be on SG-1, i decided to give Sci-Fi channel another chance. I also like Claudia Black guest starring on the show because she was another cast member on Farscape that i liked.

Hi MuzikQueen79, Welcome to Able to Know!
I think a lot of Stargate fans were happy with the additions of Ben Browder and Claudia Black to the show, because of Farscape. Many of the fans for both shows did not like the way SciFi/USA treated Farscape. I think they kept both fan bases in mind when they did the casting to retool SG-1. Personallly I have heard good things, but never watched Farscape. So far though, have to say both Mr. Browder and Ms. Black, are both doing an excellent job becoming part of the ensemble--so we'll see what happens...

RDA back for #200
For all the fans, if you haven't heard--read on the wires last week that Richard Dean Anderson will be back for a special #200 appearance, and I think a couple of other guest shots. I believe these will be part of the new shows either airing in July or next winter. Just fyi, Smile

Cool. Thanks for the info. I don't keep track on SG-1 regularly, but it should be fun watching the dialogues between the old guy and the new guy. Laughing

SG-1's 200th episode
Yeah I think Ben Browder is doing a pretty good job with the "Mitchell" character, and it will nice to have RDA back as "O'Neill" for some cross interplay and maybe to tie up some loose ends too and give the fans a little more closure. Smile

Stargate SG-1 cancelled by sci fi network
Well we're not that active on this thread, but I have to vent a bit somewhere. I was very sad to see the news via "Variety" the other day on the wires. I've been worried for some time. First with Vivendi/Universal's acquisition of NBC and all the cable networks including SciFi. Then with Richard Dean Anderson (RDA) and Michael Greenburg leaving, although things seemed to be okay with the Stargate Atlantis spin off. Although it seems "Battlestar Galactica" has been more of a critical success, I thought SG-1 was doing okay with retaining ratings. The fans were mixed with RDA leaving and the cast changes, however, dedicated fans will express their love/hate while still watching. SciFi isn't saying it's due to ratings, although there is a little static about it. Last summer I passed the NBC store in Rockerfeller Center and Battlestar Galactica posters in the window, was when I really started to worry. More recently the cancelling of the SG-1 Monday night of repeats. Also the 200th episode while celebrated with a preview special et al, was a little bit uncomfortable over the top. Almost with a devil-may-care-we're gonna be cancelled aspect.

Now MGM the distribution company is saying they are trying for distribution via another network but I don't see it. Paramount/Viacom want no part of "Star Trek" and the only possibility I see is Fox and that's a long shot. Also how can you have the original show running against its spin off on another network?

If anyone has thoughts they would like to share please go ahead.

Cancellation and Jan. 2007 episodes
Hi mr. cool:
Sorry for the belated response, but yes: sigh.

Per the web site: www.tv.com there are still unaired episodes from season 10, that are in the can and I guess will be aired in Dec. 2006-Jan. 2007, but since Sci Fi channel is advertising tonights show as the season finale it's confusing, because usually they say it's the summer finale.

Per the website, www.imdb.com, something called "Stargate The Alliance" has a cancelled status, I'm thinking that was a tentative title for season 11 kick off.

The letters column on www.scifi.com, which is the Sci Fi channel's website has been fairly active since the annoucement. I think the Stargate fan base will be very unhappy if the ending is not tied up. I can only guess they are reshooting those unaired episodes or tweaking them now to wrap up as best they can, or perhaps negotiating for a mini series wrap up similar to Farscape. Doesn't seem like it though. Early wire reports mentioned some characters would be carried over to Stargate Atlantis. Later reports said that MGM was looking for alternatives but seems unlikely, Viacom/Paramount just ended their Star Trek franchise. The letters at scifi.com are both unhappy with the cancellation plus the making over the Sci Fi channel, and are venting at will.

Overall seems like parent company Universal-NBC is more concerned with promoting Battle Star Galactica. I was a little concerned last summer (2005) when I went past the NBC store in Rockerfeller Center in New York City, and in those windows saw all the Galactica posters--sort of seemed blatant where priorities were, in which show they were going with. That's just my personal opinion, not a dig at the show or anything, although I think it has a lot to do with the cancellation of SG-1, the idea of more money for special effects or salaries for Galactica. It will be interesting, next spring I guess if Galactica will be able to carry Sci Fi Friday, especially if Atlantis is cancelled (looks like it is next on the chopping block).

I love Stargate.
I've watched it since it started.
I love Richard Dean Anderson (have done since he was on "General Hospital" eons ago) and Michael Shanks.
My personal opinion is that it was never the same after RDA left.
I tried watching Atlantis ... but it has 2 vital people missing (RDA & MS). Very Happy
I'm sorry Stargate has been cancelled.
I did hear something about talk of a movie or two,
but I don't know if that's true. It would be brilliant though!
I'm collecting the series on dvd so I can watch them.
(I also have "MacGyver" on dvd too.) Very Happy

RDA
Hi Kehoe: I was a Richard Dean Anderson (RDA) fan as well.
I learned about Stargate SG-1, chatting to a friend, when her husband was deployed about how much we both loved "MacGyver." She told me I should be watching RDA on SG-1, because it had just found a new home then on the SciFi channel. I'd heard of it vaguely and knew of the spin off of the feature film, but never saw it on Showtime. I basically caught up on the old shows via the reruns on SciFi and eventually in sydication.

You are right--saw a little something about a movie on the wires and via the fan web sites, but I think the buzz has died down. I have a feeling they gave the production team what they needed to reshoot this summer in order to make adjustments to wrap up the series. If not perhaps there would have been a movie or mini series to do the wrap up. I have a feeling NBC/Vivendi Universal wants to pour more money into "Battlestar Galactica." Maybe I hope I'm wrong, we'll see.

I think it's difficult for any show to survive losing a lead and a lot of fans did reel from Michael Shanks departure/retirm. Faithful fans are great, but RDA made a personal decision to first cut back then leave completely along with his producing partner Michael Greenburg (part of "MacGyver" alum).
Generally even though he was a producer and got top building I really thought this show worked wonderfuly because it was an ensemble with the central strong characters and a good writing foundation. Personally I think "Carter" is a wonderful well rounded female character, and Amanda Tapping really did a great job with the role. I think it could have continued, perhaps with strategically placed visits by RDA as "O'Neill." I thought his exit was handled abruptly and this season his guest spots have seemed spotty, but maybe that's all they had to work with regarding his schedule. I think it's a shame the writers and new actors don't really have a chance to get more of a groove.

I agree I only like Atlantis and will probably just occasionally watch it when convenient rather than really follow it. I have a feeling Atlantis will only survive so long before it is cancelled as well. It's too bad.

Two movies direct to DVD
Hi all, read on the wires today via scifi.com, that MGM has greenlighted 2 direct to DVD movies for Stargate SG-1 for the current cast and producers. The first will wrap up current Ori story line and the second will be a time travel adventure. So apparently the series will cliff hang on the sci fi channel but the fans will get the endings all tied up via these movies.
Per the wire copy, estimated release dates Fall 2007,
I hope to have DVD player by then...
Smile
