    Unhappy Goodbye Jack O'Neill! (The "I will miss Jack" Vent Thread)

    This thread is for everyone who wants to express their disappointment about the lack of Jack O'Neill in season 9. Here you can vent, rant, whine and mope with like-minded folks as much as you want to without having to justify why you feel the way you feel.

    All GW forum rules apply, in particular:
    Respect your fellow forum members!
    Respect the actor's decision to reduce his involvement/leave the show, don't debate it!

    Disclaimer: so far there has been no official and final statement from any PTB about RDA's involvement in S9! All we know is that he has not signed on as a regular cast member. Therefore all the whining and ranting in this thread is ultimately speculation until there is an official announcement.
    Posters in this thread are aware of this and should not have to debate the sense of fretting about unconfirmed facts.

    I hope his leaving doesn't become official as I don't know if I'll want to watch it if he's not in it at all.

    I gotta say - he is one of the main reasons I watch the show, Jack makes me smile and RDA is just so darn good lookin'! I will miss his presence in the show, as I have really missed him during his reduced schedule. But alas, i have my DVD's to keep me smilin'

    I will still watch the show, but miss the original!!!

    Jack kicked ass! he brought comedy relief to the show and it's serious moments. I just feel sorry for the poor guy who ends up having to replace him!

    There is no replace for him!!!
    Nobody can replace him and every attempt to do so, would be a slap into the faces of his fans.
    I really hope this new character (sorry, can't remember the name ) has his own personality and is not a cheap imitation of Jack!
    That would make it even worse.
    Don't get me wrong: I can totally understand RDA's decision...it's just...it doesn't make me miss him less.
    I think, I could live with Stargate without a Stargate , but Stargate without Jack....that's torture!

    The entire cast interaction just won't be the same. The timing and off the wall adlibs between Rick and Michael were timeless! Those two had fantastic chemistry (not the romantic kind, ew). And the show won't be as funny, because all of his adlibs will be gone. Season 8 Jack just doesn't fit right now.

    I am gonna miss Rick terribly. I would almost bet that they won't release how many episodes Rick will be in (if at all) because they want the ratings. They don't want a ratings spike just when he appears.

    The opening credits just won't feel as exciting. Granted, I've missed those eyes since Season Six, but at least he's been in the credits.

    promoting him to general was just a bad idea in the first place. he's only gone offworld once this season, and he no longer has the mentality he used to have. even though he'll be there for a few eps in s9, i'll miss him being there.

    Well, I'll miss him, but I'm interested in Ben Browder joining the cast.

    I don't really want him to leave. He rocks as commander of the SGC.

    I don't really know about Beau Bridges being the commander...



    I'll miss Jack...

    And why should it? Unltimately the reasons for why a character is no longer in a show - them being reasons you approve of or not - will hardly change the way you feel.

    It's the same when you complain about something trivial, for example not getting your favorite brand of chocolate at the store. Someone will inevitably tell you that there are people starving - that's correct and it's terrible but it doesn't negate your right to complain and be disappointed about not having the chocolate.
    Okay, maybe the chocolate/people starving example is a bit extreme but you get what I mean, right?

    Thanks, Feli. (((Feli)))

    I know that nothing I whine about will change anything that's been decided but, it's my perogative to whine if I want to. *harumph*

    *whines piteously* I'm gonna miss Jack!!!!!!!

    His kick-a$$ attitude, his smart-a$$ remarks, his a$$ .
    I'll still have him in DVD's (both Stargate and MacGyver) but, I most likely won't watch S9.
    I absolutely respect the man for his decision to spend time with his daughter but, *whines again*
    I WANT JACK!!


    Hey Feli! You need to have a 'whining' smiley.
    You're never too old to do something goofy.
    Growing older is mandatory. Growing up is optional.

    Yeah, got it!
    That's what I wanted to say!
    (Actually, RDA and chocolate is a good comparison....YUMMY ...but that belongs to another thread. )

    And now back to being depressed: I WILL MISS HIM TERRIBLY!!! *whine*

    RDA: Come baaaaaaaaaaack!!
    And it came to pass that in time the Great God Om spake unto Brutha, the Chosen One: "Psst!"

    Jack: You're so shallow.
    Daniel: Oh please. Teal'c is like one of the deepest people I know. He's so deep. Tell him how deep you are. You'll be lucky if you understand this.
    Teal'c: My depth is immaterial to this conversation.
    Daniel: Oh! You see?
    Jack: (to Daniel) No more beer for you.

    River: My food is problematic.

    I too will feel the loss of our beloved leader.

    RDA is the original reason for my watching Stargate and although I have
    come to love the other characters of the show, it will definitely leave
    a very empty space in my heart without his wonderful presense.

    The lack of his witty sense of humour can definitely be felt in season
    8, predominately caused by his limited availability, and I worry how
    much the show will change without him being there. He brought a
    special element to each episode with every gesture, smile and ad-lib.

    His laid back, fun loving portrayal of Jack seemed to bring out the best of
    the other team members, and you can definitely see the dynamic chemistry
    he has with each of the other actors.

    There are not enough words for me to convey how greatful I am that
    RDA has given me eight wonderful years and how deeply he will be missed.

    Thankyou for this thread, Feli.
    I can't actually imagine SG1 without him; just writing it makes me feel sad.
    I've tried to be open minded about changes & I feel a bit guilty going on about Jack, as the other characters are great too, but I do love the whole team dynamic with him as the lynchpin.
    I'll still be watching (unless things go seriously pants!), but I love Jack to bits & I think I'm in a bit of denial with all the "let's wait & see, it might be ok" stuff.
    I'm just about to start on S8 when the DVD drops through the letterbox, so maybe that will prepare me bit more for S9 - I've been looking forward to more Stargate as the Lost City was excellent, but I am a bit worried about General Jack & seeing less of him.
    I don't want him to go

    I will miss him big time. When I first saw the promos for Stargate on Showtime 8-9 years ago, I remember being so excited and RDA playing Jack was the frosting on the cake. Jack was what made the show special to me. All of the cast members were and are great, but Jack was the glue.

    I'm not sure how I will feel about season 9, but I will give it a try. I hope I like it, but I'm pretty sure "I miss Jack" will always be in my mind. I will also watch just to hear them mention of his name, what he's doing. How many actors create a character that lead you to watch a show after the character is gone in hopes of hearing about him?

    *If anyone saw European Vacation, there is a scene where the daughter is in England missing her boyfriend, Jack. She cries out "I miss Jack". It always makes me think of Jack O'Neill.*
