I just wanted to mock the topic in the Atlantis forum, "Will Atlantis outshine SG1..."

Well, time for me to get some headaches :)

I'm guessing that SG-1 will always be a top show within the Sci-Fi category, but it may be possible with all the Lost City sort of stuff. We'll soon see!

SG:A does the have fortune of having "Atlantis" in the name...alot of people are interested by this. My gf isn't really a big fan of stargate (although she does watch sometimes), and even SHE said it was cool about them discovering Atlantis.

I thought it was cool too :), and i thought it was also cool that O'niell had the special genes to control the Atlantis equipment and stuff...

People will be more interested in the last season of SG1, Then atlantis will get all the attention unless it sucks.

It would be really interesting though not out of the question if atlantis had higher ratings then sg1, this could happen because not everyone has seen sg1 from the start, while atlantis could draw sg1 fans and new fans that may not watch sg1.

i think with sg1 having such well developed characters now, itll be hard to beat, because you just watch it, and you KNOW what there gonna do. Like whenever tielc is questioning, and he just sits there. You cant do that with atlantis just yet because the chatacters wont be well enough developed. People dont wanna be sitting wtaching somebody they hardly know being silent. Its like with star trek. Everyone wondered if jean luc picard could become the new kirk. It started slow, but eventually, everyone saw him as the "star trek" captain, the big name synonymous with the series!

SG1 Will undoubtedly outshine atlantis for a while, but only because of insufficient character development on the atlantis side of things!

I totally agree, SG1 is already well-developed (well, not some people, the show has become underdeveloped), and i think it'll be hard for a new show to do better.

For me, I think that Atlantis has a chance of outshining SG-1... Mainly because I think it's starting to drag on... I mean, for me, all of the previous seven seasons have been great, and I'm looking forward to season eight... But I hope to god that they don't go one season too many like "The X-Files".

Once Moulder was abducted and was out of the show, it lost its balance, there were more 'non believers' than believers in the show, i thought the show's story kind of went weird, so i lost interest. Although Stargate's storylines hasn't been my favorite (a handfull of season 7 episodes weren't really my favorite) i think Stargate SG1 will still be good :)

yeah yeah, im not saying it time it wont outshine sg1, it has every chance as with every new series. what im saying is that while they run in conjunction it wont!

That's almost like asking if DS9 was going to outshine TNG. sg-1 has firmly established itself as an icon of science fiction history, with season 8 being its potential last season (potential like s6 and s7...:-/) fans will watch it bad or not. with atlantis, they still need to "plant the seeds" and prove themselves to be an able show worthy to "carry the torch". Because they are potentially overlapping with only one season and this season being sg-1 swan song...sg1 will definately be the more "prominent attraction"

I would rather watch a last season of SG1 then the new season of Atlantis (Although Atlantis is after SG1), but then again, they're DVD's :), but i'm an unpatient person.

I agree. I was wondering if there will be any people watching Atlantis who are not watching SG-1 and are not familiar with the whole background story. What I mean is, I think there will be some SG-1 fans who are not going to watch Atlantis, and it might be hard for Atlantis to attract people who are not interested in SG-1 and don't know anything about the storyline. So, I'm not sure about the "outshining" but I think it's not going to be easy for Atlantis to keep up to SG-1.

I think they should play Stargate Infinity as a bridge between the two. :D

SG-1 is fast approaching Infinity's level anyway. :P

At least they still get the sound effects right! ;)

In a word - BAD. The only thing it has going for it is the name and a large ring that makes wormholes. Pass on this one.

Nobody really warned you as such just saying that the show was very poor

It matters, if season 8 is like season 7, then Atlantis will beat SG1.

Why, because you didn't like season 7? It did pretty good ratings-wise, you know. Unless you're talking about how good it will or won't be, which is entirely subjective anyway.

Yeah, but also - no matter how much some like to say the show sucked this past season, it did very well in the ratings. And the ratings are its only form of success that can be measured objectively.

And the ratings are its only form of success that can be measured objectively.Yes, the ratings (although it isn't reliable all the time, especially for the stupid WB) does tell alot, if people thought season 7 was bad, then why did so much people tune in?

Are the writers on Stargate SG-1 changing? If not, then we should expect the same quality that we have received in the past. I know some of the Stargate writers are on Atlantis. It will no doubt have a slow start up plotwise with having to bring everything new in. They are going to a new galaxy, a new world, what about new material. Sounds to me like the opportunity for both is the same. If Atlantis does outshine the Gate, I'll be shocked.(but not disappointed)

Some people think the stories last season were good, although it could have been better. In my opinion, i thought the writers are doing an ok job on last season, i still enjoyed it though :)
