In this new interview, she states that she will be appearing in some more episodes at the 2nd part of the season. It will be interesting to see what role she will be playing and if she ends up accompanying Dr. Jackson (Michael Shanks) when he visits Atlantis. Discuss.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

I kinda like seeing her in Atlantis, even though I haven't seen the early season 4 eps yet. But she did a great job in the latter part! Atlantis being in military hands is logical, after all, they're getting attacked...

It's going to hell when the IOA takes over... Shep and Woolsey are prolly not going to agree with each other at all... :D

Maybe Sam is flying a new ship in? She deserves it.

Regarding her reduced involvement in season 5 of Atlantis, Tapping said she didn't know how many episodes she was in this year: she filmed the start of the season with the Atltantis crew, then switched over this month to the 13-episode run in front of the green screens with Sanctuary. Once she's done there she returns to Atlantis to film at least part of the end of season 5.
I certainly hope she'll be in more eps in s5. maybe she leaves in S&R and her second ep's in the back half? please let me be wrong!

Imagine your commander running home when half the team are missing and you have funny looking Hybrids running around trying to kill them.

Nice moment to leave... Her leaving had better be in the second ep... It would even be silly to announce her leaving at the end of the first ep!

Yay! I'm very happy that she will feature at the end of the season:)

I'm hoping that she has two episodes at the start of the season (when Joe said they had her "locked in for two episodes with the possibility of more'' a while ago, I don't think they had any second half episodes completed to the stage where they could start 'locking in' characters. I hope she makes atleast a brief appearance in the mid-season two parter, and because Sanctuary could possibly be done by then, I hope she features quite heavily at the end of the season.

that's how i'm thinking it is. she's in 2 episodes, search and rescue, then one at the end

anything else has yet to be confirmed or signed in anyway

Well "Sanctuary" is only 13 eps and mostly filmed with a green screen. So that would make the production and shooting go very fast. She'll be available when the 2nd half of Atlantis begins. Remember SG crew takes a break in the middle.

Skydiver
March 19th, 2008, 04:24 PM
they do. but my gut is that the show will move on without her and bringing sam back will be seen as ertreading the past too much

Personally? i doubt she'll get another episode. the show will go on and they have new characters to play with. I'd love it if they prove me wrong...but with these PTB, 'out of sight, out of mind' seems to be par for the course. the show will move on without her

I don't think she will be accompanying Dr. Jackson since he will be appearing in the mid-season two parter, while she bookends the season.

Amanda is working producer as well as star, so she will be involved in post production, which will take longer than normal because of the heavy computer effects work. My guess is she won't have much time to do much more than one extra SGA episode.

Frankly, I don't know why they call this SGA anymore. They need to rename it Atlantis-SG1. The SGA I loved doesn't exist anymore.

I rather have Tapping just guest star. But as per your above statement, Atlantis for Season 5 will have no SG-1 cast on full-time and the line-up is similar to a Season 2/3 line-up since Carson Beckett is back for at least a recurring role. So it will feel more like classic Atlantis with Beckett around, oh and the 4 team members are still there from Sheppard team, along with Zelenka and Lorne. So it still is Atlantis to me.

SGA being like SG-1 sounds like a bad thing. :p I mean Atlantis is it's own show with it's own characters but it is heavily influenced by SG-1! Why do you think it is so successful? ;)

The Carter on Atlantis has been different than the Carter on SG-1, which I guess is good or bad depending how you look at it. :S

I miss the Carter from SG-1 and we only got a few eps on Atlantis with the classic Carter. Still, it was good they wrote her differently but was just not my cup of tea. I think Woolsey is going to be great next season.

That is exactly it. I did not hate it, it was acceptable to me, but felt it could of been better. I liked seeing O'neill still on the show, but I missed the "Colonel" O'neill. Carter is like in the same boat with Atlantis. It's not bad but it's not the best to me. I think there was so much happening with the Atlantis characters like Weir's departure, and Carson's return we did not really think too much about the leadership role. Carter was there and she just did her job.

I disagree she will be busy but I think maybe not so much in post production
She wouldn't have mentioned it if she wasn't already planning on it. My guess is at least two episodes maybe more

Why do you say that ? Every show changes characters sometimes. Woolsey has appeared on both shows but I don't consider him a main player or cast member I think he appeared maybe twice on SG-1 Carter was from SG-1 but she is no longer going to be part of the regular cast.

Masterchief writes: “ I read an article about Amanda Tapping’s involvement in season 5. remember a few weeks ago when I asked you about her? you said she’ll definitely be back. according to this interview she “returns to Atlantis to film at least part of the end of season 5?. “

Answer: Carter will be in Search and Rescue and is definitely slated for an episode in the back half. Any further appearances will be wholly dependent on Amanda’s schedule.

You're a good guesser, Sky! I thought for sure the two episodes would be at the beginning - one showing her leaving, and one explaining why. Now I'm a little confused. Are they just going to show her walking through the gate and that's it? :confused:

I think with Sam no longer being the commander of Atlantis everyone in Atlantis is going to find it realy hard having someone from the IOA in command i think over the coarse of the season Sheppards team have warmed upto Sam except McKay was already pritty close to Sam so i believe with Woolsey having commaned of Atlantis Shepperd and his team are not going to trust Woolsey and things between them will be very hostile and they will want Sam back :) just a thought

Argh! How can you leave at a time like that? So it should be a very action packed episode, and then she just happens to mention she's leaving and that Woolsey might be taking over, or something alike? That'll make the fun-ness of the episode fade away pretty fast, like blood draining from your face? :(

Great timing. Especially after Midway, where she said 'I kinda like it here' if I remember correctly.

But in general it's of course a good choice for Amanda, doing something else for a bit, not Carter, again... :)

...when I read the press release saying I'd be doing several episodes I was quite thrilled. So far I'm doing one off the top, which explains Carter leaving the show.

I don't remember the exact quote or source but...

“I was terribly excited about the movies, but once they’ve been shot and they’re in the can, you’re thinking about the next one, even though this one isn’t finished yet.” He confirmed that they are already pursuing the third movie, not yet announced or titled. “I’ve got a story in mind for movie number three. Robert Cooper and I have discussed it, and I’ve had some preliminary discussions with MGM and Richard Dean Anderson [who also appears in Continuum]. … If the movies are well received, then the third movie will probably be slotted in after production of the third Stargate series [tentatively titled Stargate Universe and pitched to the SCI FI Channel in October 2007], or after Stargate Atlantis [which just began production this week and will conclude sometime in September]. But, if one or the other doesn’t go forward then we’ll probably start shooting our third movie in the spring of 2008 [keep in mind, however, that this interview was conducted before the WGA strike put a temporary halt to Wright’s writing of the script].”

AoT is doing great. This was on GW


Stargate: The Ark of Truth is off to a great start in its North American DVD release, landing in the Top 10 on the national DVD sales chart in its first week.
The film ranked ninth on the chart, according to Video Business. Among direct-to-DVD releases, it was second only to Disney's Snow Buddies.


So it looks good for a third movie. If it really is with RDA even better. :)

I was never saying it should have been the Carter Show, but if you're gonna bring an iconic character from another series, you don't just have her used as a figurehead, to do so is annoying and insulting to the character and the fans, i'm saying if you're not going to use the character to their full potential, get someone else in and flesh them out as little or as much as you want.

which is probably the idea behind woolsey being base commander.

i'm betting the 100th episode is what she'll be in. I know it's not written yet, but it doesn't necessarily have to be written for an actor to be in it...in fact, sometimes they need to know just who can play before they write stuff

I would really like Sam to be in the big 1-0-0 :cool:

Maybe Sam is in episode 100. And maybe it's not just Sam? Maybe it's a big crossover. And maybe the Wraith find Earth and manage to reach it. And maybe they all have to work together to stop an invasion.

And maybe I jump to too many conclusions.:)

that'd be a shocker...do a REAL plot adn not a spoof for their 'milestone' episodes.

I think Joe M said it would not be a spoof or joke episode. So we may get something very dramatic and shocking for the 100th episode, which will hopefully be only a Season finale and not a Series finale.

If there is a 6th season...

I wonder if Tapping will return if Sanctuary bombs or is shot at a different time.

Yeah that's what I heard aswell... I think the spoof eps should be left with SG1 anyway, even though I like those sort of episodes it wouldn't really suite SGA IMO :)

Atlantis is darker, but not BSG dark. If they ever crack a smile on BSG I will be shocked, but I still love that show as well.

hmm maybe we can get Katee Sackhoff for Season 6! :p

ah crap I can't find the question but Joe definitely confirmed that the 100th ep won't be a joke ep like Wormhole Xtreme or 200


If there is a 6th season...

there will be :D


I wonder if Tapping will return if Sanctuary bombs or is shot at a different time.

you know I've been thinking about that too. I wish her all the best with Sanctuary but if there's a problem I can imagine TBTB trying to bring her back. not as a regular though, probably just recurring. it depends on how she'll leave Atlantis...

Nope, I am actually very interested in watching the show though. It would not bother me if she returned or did not return. As per Tapping's sake I hope Sanctuary is a success.

I know what you mean, before I found gateworld eps had more of a surpise and unexpected feel to them... but it's a fair compromise I suppose :P

Answer: Given Carter’s reduced role in season 5, it’s highly unlikely.

Honestly, I kind of wish people would stop harping on her personal life and let them present Sam as a leader and in the capacity of a scientist and soldier. I think we got enough of her personal life in seasons 7 and 8 at the detriment of the other stuff, and then she stagnated in development for 9 and 10.

Sure, I'd like to know, but if her time is limited, I don't want to see her wistfully thinking about her bio-clock ticking and have her angst over her lovelife. Especially if it's one of those one or two line bits that never actually say anything straight out and stays ambiguous. I want to see her in action using her brain and solving problems or leading.

I have these visions of her pausing in the middle of loading a mag clip and saying, "if only the person I am intimate with back on Earth who may or may not be in Washington right now was here to give me strength,' and then proceeding to blow the crud out of the new baddie. :(

which had *nothing* to do with the writers working the personal life angle in s7/8, but of... (keeps bitter rant to herself)

Well, yeah, they aren't really related, but it made it seem like if they couldn't write Sam as angsting about her lovelife, there was no other depth to her character. Which is not true at all, but this is the impression they gave me. And when we had something like 6 seasons of her before doing things and getting in the action and balancing that with glimpses her love life, the complete and total lack of character progression in 9 and 10 made me think they couldn't writer her as just a character anymore. It's like they need the crutch of her relationship to write for her when they could just be giving her things to do like they would for any male character.

I haven't seen AoT yet (but soon I hope, I'm going nuts) but from what I saw of her on Atlantis, things seemed a little better. It's just that the time has long come and gone for them to be doing these dumb little hints. Just come out and say something. And I'm not one to believe she and Jack have been sneaking around or secretly married since season 8, so for me, it has to be a blatant statement, not just a random photo in her luggage.
