Many are speculating that she will appear in the 100th episode. Do you think she will or won't? Give reasons TPTB have remained silent on the subject only saying the episode will not be a spoof or joke like the SG-1 was so it is possible she will appear.:sam::sam:

Wow, er, that's difficult to say right now.

She's got S&R, and after that she's only scheduled back for one ep in the back half so far, and to have her appear in it would need to be logical, so she'd have to be in 6x01 too. I hope she comes to Atlantis with the Phoenix in the back half of the season. And I also think the Phoenix should remain on Atlantis from now on. They're 18 days removed from Earth, and they don't even have a ship there? How stupid is that?

So she can come to Atlantis with the Phoenix, as far as I'm concerned. And stay indefinitely. ;)

imo they should do an hour long machinima using stargate worlds, voiced by the actors.

I think there's a reasonably good chance she will be. I also think there’s a chance we may see her in more than one episode in the back half of the season, or at least there's that possibility as I believe Sanctuary (with a thirteen episode season) will wrap production before Atlantis does.


And I also think the Phoenix should remain on Atlantis from now on. They're 18 days removed from Earth, and they don't even have a ship there? How stupid is that?

From what we've seen it stands to reason that that time is probably shorter now that both Daedalus and Apollo are assigned to Atlantis.

If I'm not mistaken the 100th episode will be the season ender. If that is correct then Amanda should be available since Santuary will be done shooting. Joe has said on his blog that Amanda will be in more episodes if her schedule permits. Taking that all together, that should be a yes.

I also believe :sam: should appear in the 100th episode. She has made guest appearances in each of seasons 1-3, was an important part of season 4 and will be guesting in season 5 so she should be in episode 100.

yup

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.
http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/2008/03/20/march-20-2008-destructo-in-the-drivers-seat-bloopers-in-peril/

we can definitely expect to see her in one ep in the back half. Joe said they still got three remaining slots, maybe she'll be available for another ep. let's hope so :)


I also believe :sam: should appear in the 100th episode. She has made guest appearances in each of seasons 1-3, was an important part of season 4 and will be guesting in season 5 so she should be in episode 100.

Not if its an on base episode. Jack & Woolsey can share stories & see whos better at commanding a base. Teal'C & Ronon can have a rematch with John & the rest of the soliders & scientists watching & betting on them again. Rodney & Carter & can find out who is the smartest once & for all

You think SG1 was canceled because of ratings?
Keeping the same x amount of actors on a show for 10 straight years gets extremely expensive...
RDA, Chris Judge, Amanda Tapping, and Michael Shanks (not saying BB and Claudia Black shouldn't show up but...) would take up a substantial amount of the budget.

I'd love to see the SG1 crew, but I doubt it would be that episode.

You know, this IS Stargate ATLANTIS, not SG1. SG1 had a decade, now two movies. Putting SG1 characters into SGA's 100th episode makes no sense. SG1 had a 100th episode and more. Let SGA have its own show and let the SG1 characters (and actors) move on. I'd suggest the writers also stop falling back on the safety net of shoving SG1 characters on the series as well.

The cost would be far too high and woudl no doubt cause the writers to pen a crappy flashback episode or two because they coudln't afford to make a real epsiode.

Oh, but if they have to schedule the 100th episode around Tapping, then I say nix her appearance. We saw how well working around RDA's tight schedule did with SG1... :S

Lot of people stoped watching Atlantis after the cast changes in S4. With SG1's characters TPTB made up for that by bringing new viewers, and were able to keep the ratings and go into a new season. It's business, what ever brings viewers, brings money, and they will do it.

Tapping will return to shot Atlantis after she's done with Sanctuary, so I'm guessing that won't be a big problem.

The cast changes were pretty moronic. Killing characters to boost ratings doesn't work. It just alienates viewers, unless you're watching "24" where it's standard to kill someone practically every episode.

As for bringing back Carter? They'd kick Woolsey off the show to bring Carter back? That would be, well, rather tacky. But shooting a show around one actor who isn't even a regular anymore isn't good business, unless of course, you got a real name. Hmm, you know, speaking of names, I'd rather they get Goran Visjnic from ER but I guess they can't afford him :(

I'd rather the 100th episode be about Sheppard's team. And no comedic junk, no replicators, no Ori, no gou'ald, nothing from SG1.

No one said anything about kicking Woolsey out. Carter will be back for one ep at the end of the season as a guest star. It's still not confirmed if it's going to be the 100th episode or an ep before that.

What we know so far is that it won't be comedy. There probably won't be Ori or Goa'uld, but there might be replicators if they don't finish that arc sooner in the season.

I was reading the line "Tapping will return to shot Atlantis after she's done with Sanctuary," which I suppose, can imply either way. And is Sanctuary's shooting schedule up?

I would hope it's not replicators. They're done to death, unfortunately. One would hope they could get rid of the replicator stuff once and for all and instead concentrate on Wraith. The replicators are pretty black & white, don't negotiate, etc. while wraith are living beings who can have twisted little agendas of their own ;)

Carter is now part of Atlantis so it would be good to include her. Woolsey should be staying Carter chose to leave because she wasn't willing to put SGA filming ahead of Sanctuary which the new contract would have required her to do. Umm they did that with RDA so it does happen and there is nothing to say the 100th episode has to be shot in order they could film it at the end instead.

LOL true but I wouldn't mind another RepliCarter :D

Yeah it would be cool she was a cool character evil Carter is so scary I am glad she is on our side.

yup well said :) let's not forget our achievements in s4: we found a new ally, made sort of an alliance with the Wraith, got Carson back, defeated the Asurans, rescued the Asurans etc. all of this happened while Sam was base commander, she should not be forgotten. also her being in the 100th ep would be the perfect way to bring her back for some eps in s5 imo
