While Carson wasn't such a key player as Jack was to SG1, I still felt that he had a irreplaceable role on SGA. I haven't stopped watching the show, but I have stopped caring. Atlantis has a few good plots and characters (some are great characters
) but Paul was the reason I kept tuning in each week, no matter how wonky the plots got. Apart from being attractive
his character brought a much needed sensitive side to the show. Without this angle, I care less.
I started watching the show for explosions and amusing character interactions. I became attached to a character who made it all worthwhile. Now the show has lost a meaning for me to watch.
