I know it's a bit early to start talking about this with season 3 just now coming back to the states, but it's likely with the "year round programming" that the entire season of season 4 will be done by air date, so if it's to be (god I hope so) who here wants it?!

This happened because a) They are going to make a ton of money off the DVDs making it a worthwhile investment even if the ratings aren't very good. b) They desperately need to have at least one critically acclaimed/respected show on the channel- right now BSG is the only show on SCI-FI getting that attention, and as much as we'd like it so, Atlantis never will. c) They're going to want to keep a talent like RDM happy at the channel, which means letting him finish the show on his terms- he's worth a great deal to them in the long run if they can get him to produce another show for them.

Unfortunately the gates don't have these bargaining chips, and are basically stuck with following whatever SCI-FI decides. :(

There's no reason not to continue the show- I think it's proven that it has legs and can go on without SG-1. And I think we'd all suffer horribly if we lost both SG-1 AND Atlantis within a year of each other. :S

And considering that there will only be one or two more seasons of BSG, I think there would be quite the void of good sci-fi. :S

Actually, BSG only running one or two more seasons could play very favourabley towards Atlantis getting renewed. SCI-FI is going to need a well-established show once it's gone, and as of now, Atlantis is really the only show that could take that position. :)

Maybe the stars of Stargate Atlantis will just improvise some humorous lines and save Robert C. Cooper the trouble of writing all the lines.

Definitely want more Stargate: Atlantis! Absolutely! As long as it keeps going, the franchise keeps going.

When Season 5 starts for Atlantis in 2008, Stargate: Universe should have started up by then too, so I'd like to maybe see some sort of connection between the series as was done between SG-1's 8th Season and Atlantis' 1st Season. If Atlantis (and maybe even SG-1) could play any kind of part in Universe's pilot episode or any future episodes then I'm all for it.

As much as I want a season 5, I've got to say I am less than sure now. The ratings took a much bigger hit than I expected. If this trend continues...... Scifi really messed up but I'm affraid if they now realize it, it's too little too late. The ratings for the second half of season 3 are going to be a huge factor in weather or not to renew it. I sure hope it does but if the ratings hit continues.....:mckay:

SciFi will be the death for SGA, too. They are doing everything to harm the series, instead of pushing it up with commercials and all of that other advertising stuff.

I really do hope, that there will be a fifth season and a lot mores. But then I want them to let Carson/Paul and Elizabeth/Torri return. They are part of the team, and they should always be part of the team.

Perhaps the fans should take more actions to make Stargate more popular again, fansites, etc. Just a suggestion for a possible solution. But if SciFi doesn't care about one of it's hit series, the fans should care even more about SGA. We know what aims the fans can reach...

But I still have the hope that there will be at least a fifth season for SGA.

More and more my anger is directed towards NBC/Universal. I believe I heard somewhere that the network is pushing towards more original generated shows from NBC/Universal and it is appearing to attempt to sabotage other shows. That's just my opinion on that, but I'm not so much mad towards SCIFI now, rather with NBC/Universal. How can one company have that much power? I say "Bust The Trusts!"

April 24th, 2007, 09:44 AM
Yes, I heard that, too. And I totally agree with you. One single company shouldn't be that powerful. And should be fair and give the other series their chances.
But SciFi did their mistakes and NBC/Universal did their mistakes, and will always do their mistakes I think.
They should realize to use the series with good potential and introduce their own series to other times instead of kicking the hit series wiht everything they have. Sooner or later they will ruin their own series with the good series side by side.

But I am still optimistic for a fifth season. I think they want to reach the 100th episode to get another record. And perhaps the season 4 ratings will be more acceptable than the season 3 ratings now.

Would you like to see Atlantis DVD films, when they won't order season 5? I fear that the rating will be worse, so maybe the SciFi will cancel Atlantis after season 4. In that sad case I hope they will make at least 5-6-7 or more DVD films (= 10-14+ episode). Bigger budget, better stories, more special effects. And finally they can stay independent from SciFi Channel. ;)

Of course NBC/Universal doesn't give a crap about the Stargate franchise- they make no money from it! But I think the word "sabatage" is harsh and inadequite. They're not "sabataging" Stargate, they're putting their effort into the shows that they own, and that they make money off of. They're not going to sabatage Stargate, if it could bring in advertising revenue, then they'll keep it, money is money. Problem is when you have a set budget for advertising these shows, you're going to advertise the show that you own, in hopes that it takes off, and results in DVD sales as well as ad revenue. They run a business, and they're going to follow the model that gets them the $$$, and I can't blame them for that. Sure they could treat Stargate better, but look at it from their perspective.

I once shared your optimisim but mine is fading fast. NBC/Universal and sicifi are sabotaging their show plain and simple. If the ratings continue to fall, which at this point I expect, season 4 will be it. I hope we get a fifth season, who knows mabey the ratings will climb.

I'd be nice to have a Season 5 made directly for DVD, but it would be extremely difficult. To make up the revenues spent would be very, very hard. If each set was sold for $40, coupled with 1 million sets being sold, that would roughly make up the costs for production.

I totally agree with you Lauriel. I didn't find Irresponsible to be an ep to hold anything special in it that we have to remember in previous seasons or eps. Taht being said, it can be taken out of my memory quite easily. Just to bring back Kolya and give him, if he needs to die, a spectacular death.

If we count only with Atlantis, there is a sort list:

- Halling
- Bates
- Ford
- Dr. Biro
- Dr. Katie Brown
- Dr. Kavanagh
- Janus, Chaya, Melia, Aiyana, Merlin or other Ancients from "Epiphany"
- Miko (The Japanese scientist from "Letters From Pegasus")
- Laura Cadman
- Elina ("The Brotherhood")
- Baden and Nola ("The Game")
- Dr. Cole ("Sunday")
- light aliens ("Defiant one")
- black cloud ("Hide And Seek")
- Torrell and his prisoner people ("Condemned")
- Eldon ("Condemned")

Who? :p

You're kidding?! I've seen that movie tons of times and never spotted it. Well done!

Regarding Kolya
JM said in his blog there was a possibility of Robert Davi/Kolya returning.

So don't give up hope yet. You know what they say about people dying in scifi. :D

Yeah he plays agent Johnson from the FBI. Regarding Koyla I hope so though I actually felt the western style shootout between John and Koyal actually was very fitting of the characters hatred for each other, I also thought it was a good ep though I really want Koyla back.

If there is a season 5 (lets hope) i think that will end on the 100th ep so i doubt there will be a comic episode for the 100th then

You're right the last ep of the season would be the 100th episode so it likely wouldnt be comedic. Though I truly hope if we get a fifth season it isnt the last.

If they survive season 4, than I am sure that the 3rd series and tge SG:W game will get new audience, so the rating of season 5 will be bigger and we can begin a pro season 6 thread too. ;)

...the SG:W game will get new audience...

Do you really think the game will bring in a new audience? I highly doubt that, tbh. I think only people who know Stargate will want to play this game (and only those Stargate-fans who are into MMORPG's).

Platschu

Yes, I believe in SG:W. If the game is really good and entertaining, than not only the gaters or scifi fans, but their friends, classmates will buy to try it. :o

But didn't many loose interest when it was no longer going to be build for platforms such as Xbox, Playstation, ... Of course, those are few and WOW-players are many but still...

I for one lost interest when they announced it to be an MMORPG. I do like RPG's don't get me wrong here. But that's not important here.
What is, is that I think it will be a genre-game that will only appeal to the people that know the Stargate-world.
WOW is universal since it isn't tied to a TV-show or a book, or a movie. It's created from something original and it appeals to many people.

But hey, if it brings in new people that would be all good...I just have my doubts.
And I'd love to see Atlantis reaching that 100 episode mark, it's a milestone after all.

Platschu
April 29th, 2007, 01:35 PM
WOW is succesfull because they published 3 very good game earlier. They created a living fantasy world than they made an average-good game to earn dollar millions. :o

The Stargate : Worlds can be popular, because there is 14 season: characters, races, ships, planets, events. Other MMORPGs don't have such big scifi background. Some MMORPG are made from movies and other series (ST, SW, Matrix etc.), but the SG:W is the only game, where there are new TV series episodes too.

I understand your feelings, because it can be a bad, unplayable game, but I believe they won't make big mistakes. The writers and the crew of SG-1, Atlantis support them and the new series (SG:U) will have a thight connection to the game. The SG franchise will have new legs to survive this year and the future will be promising again. ;)

Err... I didn't say it was going to be bad. I'm just not interested in it being made for online gaming, which of course is my personal taste.

And even though I won't buy it, I'm still looking forward to see it in action. And hopefully it'll expand the Stargate Verse that many generations from now will still be seeing it, playing it and experiencing it. And that brings me back to wanting to have many more seasons of Atlantis, and the new Universe-thing. They just have to do it right, and not screw up.

I very much doubt that, there's no way they'd even bother making it if they thought their sales would be that low.

Season 4 is not out yet and we are already thinking of Season 5? Why not start a topic with Season 9 while we are at it ? There is no guarantee that SGA will continue the SG1 legacy. Ratings are going down faster than you can say `Live long and Prosper`.




You're right the last ep of the season would be the 100th episode so it likely wouldnt be comedic. Though I truly hope if we get a fifth season it isnt the last.


People argue that SGA is totally different from SG1 and now everyone wants a nice SG1 copy of the 100th episode?

It's never too early to start a season 5 thread. The season 10 thread started quite early too. Ratings are going south but not just on sg, the entire ratings network for all chanels and shows are down, and I never said I wanted SGA to continue the SG-1 legacy. I just want SGA to continue on for awhile. No need to get nasty.

I will be a bit off-topic. The spiderman3 cost 258 million dollar. They could make from this money 5 SG season = 100 episodes = 4200 minutes long story. Try to imagine what a scifi world could have built from that money: CGI aliens, worlds, forrests, animals, ships etc. I am bit sad that only this expensive CGI movies can stay alive. :(

How about we start seeing how the back half of season 3 goes in the ratings, and I imagine, the front half of season 4 before we start fantasizing about seasons 5, 6, 7, .... and who knows what more.

I'd love to see a season 5, don't get me wrong. I have said so before, but it's the ratings that count and of course, Sci Fi's will to keep it going for a few more years.

I think there is a point to discussing it. Firstly, people like to enthuse with other like-minded people about things they enjoy. In fact, that is pretty much the sole reason GW was created in the first place! It might not be necessary, but it is certainly enjoyable, and that counts as a good enough reason in my opinion.

Secondly, TPTB have been known to peruse this forum from time to time, and does it really hurt anything for them to know they have the interest and support of at least one section of the fanbase? Again, it might not make a difference, especially as they don't have much control over this matter either, but at least they know they aren't the only ones hoping their baby will continue to grow.

I want my daughter to grow old and outlive me. Will it happen? Maybe, maybe not. I'm certainly going to assume and act like it will though, and that will dominate the way I think and talk about the matter. Same with this. Until I know there will definitely be no more SGA, I will keep discussing its continuation.


People argue that SGA is totally different from SG1 and now everyone wants a nice SG1 copy of the 100th episode?
Did anyone suggest that SGA is in competition with SG-1? All we are saying is that we would like a show we enjoy to continue, for the sole purpose of our continued enjoyment. We don't want SGA to continue just to top SG-1.

And yes, the shows are different - and whether that is good or bad is entirely a matter of subjectivity. Personally, I don't want a replica of an SG-1 100th ep, I would like a totally innovative SGA 100th ep, because that means that I have watched, enjoyed, talked about, written about, and generally had fun with 100 episodes of something I love. If I have to settle for less, I will. I still hope for more. I think it's great that SG-1 had such a long run, and I watched it since it first came out, but I want SGA to continue in it's own right.

So, next week is 2008. The making of season 5 will begin at the second half of February. When will MGM or SciFi Channel release an official announcement for how many episode signed the actors (especially Amanda Tapping, Paul McGillion, Torri Higginson, Michael Shanks and Jewel Staite)? Can we expect news in the next days?
