    Colonel Jack O'Neill: So what's your impression of Alar?
    Teal'c: That he is concealing something.
    Colonel Jack O'Neill: Like what?
    Teal'c: I am unsure. He is concealing it.

    As far as I know he's going to keep them for the rest of the season? Something about Sci-fi making a decision that he keep them, thus the wig, If it were up to the show itself they would lose the locks.

    I thought Jason decided that Ronon needed the dreads so they decided not to cut them off in the episode.

    Jason Momoa cut his hair for health reasons, but the geniuses at Sci-Fi decided that Ronon needed the dreads, so they made a $10,000 wig out of the locks he cut off. And, as you can see from this episode, it looks like utter crap.

    It's not that bad, I doubt anyone who hadn't heard the news would have even noticed.

    I thought it looked off but to be honest I didn't look at it too much. As a casual fan not really paying attention, it didn't bother me. I guess when I watch it again I'll notice it now that its been mentioned.

    The only way you know that they are fake is because you know that he cut them off. It slipped my mind during this episode and I did not think they looked fake at all.

    It didn't look right. I kept thinking I was watching a pirate movie, or maybe one of the three musketeers. Something was definately wrong.

    I don't think this is the $10,000 wig yet. It wasn't made until after they took out the Broken Ties haircutting scene, right?

    (It isn't his real hair, just not the expensive wig.)

    You may be right. That would explain why this wig only fit the back of his head; the un-dreaded front of his hair was definitely sticking out.

    That was originally the plan, but it was aborted. There's a relevant news article on the main page somewhere, I think.

    Unhappy Re: Ronon's Hair

    I just say ditch the wig and let him have short hair. Haven't even liked the idea of the wig and the one in these 3 eps looks terrible!

    I don't remember where, possibly here on GW, but I read somewhere that this was the sequence of TEH HAIR!

    -First two eps = sewed on dreads of Jason's that got cut off (got too painful)
    -Broken Ties = switched to the wig that Jason's double uses (dread cutting scene then got cut so they made....)
    -Rest of season = $10,000 dollar wig

    If anyone finds the source on this, go ahead and post. I'm not gonna go searching, this is just what I remember.

    It was Arrested Development

    I think it was from the last interview GW had with Jason.

    I noticed it in the seed that the dreads weren't sitting right... afaik Jason cut them off with consultation with the producers due to the strain on his neck, they sat down and decided that Ronan was going to lose them onscreen and got Jason to save them and they were temporarily sewn into his hair as extensions for the first two episodes which was both time consuming and painful on Jason's behalf.

    Then sci fi went all rabid at the thought of Ronan losing his dreads, a feature of the character for their XTREME version of stargate that they thought would be a ratings killer. So naturally they got their way, but as its a big inconvenience for the guy who actually plays the character tptb decided on the comprimise of using the ratty dreads that had been cut off... saved and sewn on then taken out again two or three times already and used it to make a wig.

    Imo, everyone should just get used to the dreads looking off... its not tptb's decision or Jason's decision for them to stay, its the ****ty network that stamps its feet all the time it doesn't get its own way.
