I have just been told by a mate that it will return on 15-07-2007.

Seems a bit soon after the end of S3. Not complaining, but a little surprised. Does anyone have any corroboration on that?

Hmm I thought it was supposed to start later this year? Although I haven't heard any confirmation when it starts. Would be interesting to know, but not sure if a date is defenite yet. It would be nice if it did start in July though. :)

I suspect the fall aswell, since they're still shooting.... and judging by the shooting schedule and the inclusion of future mid-season breaks (inwhich they're usually just wrapping up shooting the season), I doubt it would start that soon. Especially since they would have yet to play through the second season a full second time.

That actually isn't part of the play, as their shootign schedule hasn't changed from previous years - they always start airing the shows before they finished shooting them. However, I'm inclined to agree with fall, as that's what's been released so far.

I believe the show itself first aired in Summer of 04. I do distinctly remember the season premiers being in July the past 2 years as well. It's possible due to the late air date of the last 10 episodes by Sci Fi, they will push back the premier to fall.

Judging by past premier dates, mid July seemed about right to me.

Joe confirmed that it's not happening in July, but that the wait will be less than the mid season break (which was 6/7 months), unfortunately that could be anywhere from summer to Christmas

Friday 07.15.05 Atlantis season 2 ep 1
Friday 07.14.06 Atlantis season 3 ep 1
Friday 07.13.07 Atlantis season 4 ep 1?????

It would make sense if season 4 did air then, but who knows because of delays. The second friday in july seems to have been the airdate for all series, if it holds true it might also mean that

Friday 07.18.08 would be Atlantis Season 5 airdate

Problem is that in past seasons they didn't hold the show back something like an extra 3 months.

It finishes airing in June, a few months break is normal in between seasons. They've already said fall, JM has said it won't be that date as stated in the original post. Therefore not July, I'll guess Sept, just so they can get in a few airings before the UK & Canada.

Yes, illegal downloading is bad. So, in countries such as Canada where I live, they should make legal downloads available. We can't get Atlantis at the Canadian Itunes store or on Amazon.ca. And Atlantis airs first run on very expensive pay tv. Talk about keeping a lot of potential viewership out of it.:(
So, whenever it airs, I won't be able to watch it anyway.

Given that the episodes are still being produced on the same schedule as past seasons (regardless of when Sci-Fi is going to show them in the US), I assume (hope) that they will begin airing in the UK on Sky One around late September / early October, same as all previous seasons of Atlantis.

We might be looking at a UK world premiere for Atlantis, folks. :)

Ah, the thread is *finally* reopened. NOt sure why it got closed, but anyway, yes, there are so many screencaps out there with "September" on 'em from the the ad that it's definitely September. I'm betting it's the 28th... definitely not the 7th. too soon after Labor day.

Well, it has been confirmed that it will air in september sometime on SCI FI channel in the US. However canada and the UK are totally different, EX: SgA season 3 premiered much MUCH sooner in canada than it did in the united states and sg-1 premiered in UK sooner than in US. Ill bet anything that july is the month for stargate atlantis season 4 in canada, it wouldnt be far fetched considering atlantis was in canada before usa by how many months?

No it never, only the second half of each season, the series premier is ALWAYS in the US.

My bad, hmm so september it is. They should have pushed for july a summer release would be perfect, instead they releasing it when school starts ( in my area and in alot of others) september. If they wanted to get ratings for the show and not drive it into the ground, like SCI FI did with sg-1 ( SCI FI's fault completly not people that downloaded the eps and didnt watch) They should put the first half in summer when people are done school and have a little break, and put it at decent times dont bump it to like 11 pm, put it to like six or 9pm? SCI FI is the reason sg-1 went to the ground. I am never watching anything thats on there station, INTERNET is a wonder. Not after they screw'd over my favorite show for a bunch of grown men in tights b*tchin at each other.

June 26th, 2007, 12:13 AM
If i were a betting man. Id say the Americans will get this air'd about 2 weeks before the UK. But then america gets that stupid mid season break and the UK will overtake and finish long before the second half of the season starts back up.

In regards to downloads, it is not a bad thing at all. For die hard Stargate fans this is a must (oh and you CAN connect PC's to TV's u know so putting it through your computer makes no odds to some people) But i agree that is DOES effect ratings and thus bad for the series continuation as a whole. But with the introduction of IPTV in coming years, downloading of episodes will become more common and start to be included in the ratings. FACT!
But it aint happening yet, so please if you do download. Make sure when the episodes airs, just put it on your TV as well so it doesnt effect the ratings :jack:

Also, maybe, MAYBE the delay for the 4th Season is so they can launch the new spin off at the same time. MAYBE Sci-Fi has learned from its mistake and relaunch its Sci-Fi friday and have Atlantis, New Spin off, and BSG again. One can only hope that this is the case.

I didn't read this whole thread, but maybe someone can answer this. Will they be making the same 20 episodes or will they go back to making 22 episodes like they did with SG-1 before Atlantis came on board? We understand they had cut back to 20 episodes each when they had to produce 40 each year, but now it's down to one show again maybe they can give Atlantis a bit more love.

Did he actually say WORLD premier, i.e., no chance of airing in Canada or UK first? Or is there a chance he's just referring to the SFC release because they don't want anybody going and DLing it and not watching it when it airs? ;)


I'll tell you what I do for every episode of SGA/SG1 and what I'll continue to do IF they are available before the US air date - watch them when they're "available", and then turn on my TV when it "airs", and let it play. So that even though there's no chance in hell my house is recorded by Nielsen (something most people are horribly, horribly ignorant of), even in the minute chance that it is, I still count as a viewer and I'm contributing and supoortive and all that bunk.

Bottom line is I want my SG and I don't give a damn what country it comes from :cool:

from the blog
Q: “I just heard SciFi have announed September 28th for the premiere of season 4. Will SciFi be world premiering (is that a word?) Adrift?”
Answer: Yes. Sci Fi will be airing the First-Time Anywhere World Premiere of Atlantis’s fourth season. First episode up: Adrift.


So, premiere, but not world premiere. I honestly don't know if he'd know the answer to the question anyway as he only confirmed the 9/28 premiere after Skiffy released that information.

Ah, oh yes, it does (runs away cringing. think I made that post either late at night, or before coffee substitute). I predict massive downloading to other countries. SciFi should get on the ball and offer legal downloads.

I don't think they have the right, even if they did though, why would they bother, it makes no difference to them...

does any one kno when season 4 will air in the uk?

In past years, Sky One has been pretty consistant with starting new seasons of Stargate in late September (back when SG-1 had 22 episodes a season) or early October (for the last three years). This is so they can show the first half of the season before the Christmas break (ending with the mid-season cliffhanger), and show the second half starting in early January and ending sometime in March.

Because they could make money; they've offered video on demand on other shows, but the gates seem to be the lesser shows in regards to PR. They stuck a full page ad for EUREKA on the back cover of E.W. - they've never done that for SGA and I thinks pigs will fly before SGA graces the backcover, or a full page ad, in EW.

Meanwhile, if Sky One premieres SGA at the same time, they could well claim the 'world premiere' title as they'd undoubtedly air it earlier ;)

Sci Fi don't have the right to do that, Stargate is property of MGM. International downloading doesn't affect Sci Fi in the slightest, neither does DVD sales.

SciFi has the right to advertise SGA. They have money invested in the series. You should read the old interviews with Thomas Vitale. After all, Skiffy just did a press tour for its shows - Eureka, BSG, and SGA.

I think you'd have to ask SciFi if they feel downloading affects them. Because they were months behind Canada, many fans did download the back half of season three. DVD sales make a big difference. Studios WANT people to buy shows on DVD. If the show don't sell on DVD, there's less incentive to keep the show going. It's the back-end marketing of foreign sales and DVDs that make a show truly profitable.

Downloading only affects them if the episodes have aired elsewhere first, if they premier on Sci Fi but are internationally downloaded then that has no affect on them at all. I think you're confusing Sci Fi and MGM, if Sci Fi is willing to buy Stargate MGM will make it, because they will make money from it. Even if low DVD sales could kill Stargate, I doubt Sci Fi would be particularly bothered, they probably don't make that much money from it anyway...

Re: int'l downloads. Neither SciFi nor MGM can open the downloads to the international crowd.

Anyway, Skiffy should at least do podcasts. If they can do 'em for BSG and Eureka, they should do 'em for SGA.

That's one of two modern day vampire shows on the schedule this fall (sounds like they're redoing FOREVER KNIGHT).

Actually, I think NBC switched Vegas and Friday Light Lights, so Friday Night Lights is in the 9:00pm spot. ABC's running Women's Murder Club (new show) at 9:00pm. Fox has something called Nashville (another new show), and CW of course is running their Friday Night Smackdown.

Depends on your time zone. Eastern time, Skiffy's schedulebot shows Flash Gordon in the 9pm slot (which is SGA's slot) It's a 22 episode series, so it's possible FG could lead in to SGA. Not sure if that's good or bad.

Yeah, but The Movie Network normally takes only a very short Christmas break. Other than that they play the eps almost straight through (a one week break here, and another one there). So even though it is starting later in Canada it may end up finishing long before the SciFi season does in the US. Just like in previous years. In fact, this is the closest the 2 start dates have ever been. Normally the first part of the season played by The Movie Network is months behind SciFi, only to catch up and pass them later because of the massive breaks SciFi puts in its shows.

Hangon, hangon. I'm confused again. Which is the one that shows Atlantis straight through again? The Movie Network? Or The Movie Channel? Cause they aren't the same thing. Whichever one of those two serves Western Canada is the one that shows SG:A straight through.

Here's the rundown on the movie network and movie central. (not sure if everyone wants to hear it. But here goes.) Both The movie network (M) and Movie central airs SGA. As for the schedule for both networks? Not sure. I can only assume that they air it ruffly the same time and date. As far as I understand everything west of Manitoba including the territories, is Movie Central's area. And M gets everything east of that.

Canada is starting later than usual this year correct? In previous years I remember they start about a month after US (around late August or early Sept) by that time US is wrapping on the first half and take a 4 month hiatus but the Canadian channel only take 2-3 weeks and air the rest straight through.

US also might not finish the first half first since the network here take the show off if there's a major holiday week. Columbus day, Thanksgiving, etc..... :mckay:

Unless they do a double showing in the premiere, Sci-fi will be behind whatever Canadian channel is airing.

Like you I'm stuck without Sky One and have no way of seeing on TV. Here in the UK I've only seen series one picked up by terrestrial tv and then sneaked in as if they were ashamed of it.

Oh wait, i forgot, they're owned by universal....same people who own NBC and couldn't figure out that shows actually do good on their network if they leave them in place long enough for people to set a patern with them. Scrubs is a good example. Had it not been for an OUTPOURING of fans, the show wouldn't have survived half a dozen time slot changes.

BTW, what is with Dr. Who first, Flash Gordon second, THEN Stargate? I won't watch the first two because I have ZERO interest in them(especially Dr. Who, what the hell is going on in that show, I can never figure it out).

I think if you look at this from Sci-Fi's point of view, the time change makes sense. (Yes, I seem to be defending Sci-Fi. :eek:) SGA looks to be replacing Painkiller Jane in the 10 PM slot so that the already running shows of Dr. Who and Flash Gordon don't move from their established time slots. Since it is easier to change the time of a program at the start of the season than in the middle of one, why would Sci-Fi bump out Flash Gordon (a show OWNED by them) from the 9 PM slot about 5 weeks after it's series pilot when they just can move the SGA premiere back one hour to 10 PM? Although the schedule bot could be wrong, Joe Mallozzi's answer on his blog yesterday (08/01/07) makes me think this is the correct time.

At Sci-Fi, I don't think the programming people know what the marketing/promotion people are doing and vise-versa thus you have the disconnect with the promo ads saying that it is airing at 9 PM. (My more normal view of Sci-Fi. :D)

Alas, I understand your viewpoint:eek: , but it also seems to point out that Skiffy's left hand has no idea what the right hand is doing. They know how long Flash Gordon will run, yet still have ads with SGA at 9pm. Well, suppose we're lucky they're not sticking ECW in that mix...

Of course, if Flash Gordon does weakly in the ratings, then it could get bumped to 10pm, hoping that a stronger lead-in of SGA would help...

I am the opposite of what many people apparently want in this thread. I would not watch SGA if it was on at 9 PM. The only way I would watch its first-run broadcast is if it's at 10 PM. So take that for what you will.

Why is that?

Because there is another program on at 9 PM that I would rather watch.

This concerns UK Viewers


I Emailed Sky asking them if they could confirm an air date on Sky One and they sent back this response.

It isn't good news.


Dear Stephen

Thanks for your email regarding Stargate Atlantis.

A broadcasting date for Stargate Atlantis, season 4, has yet to be confirmed. However, I can advise that is due to be shown in America in September, therefore, we will be unable to show the programme before it is aired in America. You may wish to check with us again in September for up-to-date information.

Thank you for contacting Sky.

Kind Regards

We've all pretty much figured out with past events that SciFi either has their head way too far up their asses to understand what their viewers want or they simply don't care and would rather not have anything to do with the Stargate Franchise and put and end to it. Or it could just be a combo of the two. I will stay up and watch the show either way simply because I would hate for Atlantis to find the same untimely fate as SG-1. Yes, I'm still a little pissed about that one.

I dare say somebody at Skiffy is an idiot. This is probably the only official confirmation we'll see,in the press release sent out today re Paul McGillion

Skiffy, via NBC/Universal, put out the following press release today…

PAUL MCGILLION RETURNS TO 'STARGATE ATLANTIS'

Fan Favorite Returns for Two Episodes Torri Higginson and Christopher Judge Also Guest Star in New Season

NEW YORK – August 8, 2007 – Reports of Dr. Carson Beckett's untimely demise last season on SCI FI's Stargate Atlantis have been greatly exaggerated…or have they? Paul McGillion will reprise his role as everyone's favorite Scottish physician in a two-episode arc during the series' fourth season, which will premiere on Friday, September 28 at 10pm ET/PT.

So, they've spent a ton of money for ads which are telling everybody to tune in at the WRONG time. Aieee. Bangs head on keyboard. That's like telling someone, oh, the train leaves at 10, but plan to leave at 9, and by the time 10 rolls around, that person has caught a cab.

Ok I dont see why Sci Fi puts SGA on Friday night and there line up I liked galactica on Sunday night(I don't know how the ratings were) but it conflicted with Family Guy so i'm thinking why not Sunday at 9:00.

Jenner8675309
August 11th, 2007, 02:06 PM
Sunday nights are big TV nights. SCI FI is already risking rating by the Sept start and by not taking a hiatus (thats what Gero said he thought was going to happen in his interview). They are going to be battling the big networks shows, like Sunday Night Football, Desperate Housewives and Family Guy and whatever ABC throw up (last year it was Cold Case). Its dangerous to move a show around too much, thats how a lot of shows get canceled. They get bumped around by a network trying to get better ratings, when then regular viewers cant find it or get tired of trying to follow the bouncing show.

I'm no TV exec, but I think Fridays at 10 is a good slot for them.

^^^^^ I've stopped watching shows because of that. In fact, that often ends up being the primary reason I stop watching shows.

"Oh I guess it isn't on this week. I'll tune in next week."
*next week*
"Oh, I guess it isn't on this week again. Funny. They shouldn't be on their mid-season break yet. I'll try again next week."
*week after*
"Not on again? Well, now I've lost interest."

Normally I only have certain times of the week when I can watch TV. Generally Wednesday/Thursday night, and sometimes an odd evening here or there. So if a show gets moved around, I don't try to go looking for it. It's gone.

Based on that Gero interview GW just put up I don't understand why the SG ptb can't relay that message to SciFi. If the actual makers of the show say that in our positions they'd be downloading the episodes instead of watching them on TV, why has SciFi been waiting MONTHS to give us already produced episodes?

As it is, SciFi broadcasts in the poorest signal quality that can be considered television (480i), so even if the eps did air at the same time they became available for illegal/legal download, many would opt to wait the few hours and download it in digital (480p, roughly double the signal quality) or even HD which is offered in other countries (720p to 1080i, which can't even be compared to SciFi's 480i).

But when illegal/legal downloading not only provides a dramatically better picture (on an action show where picture quality does matter), but also the same content MONTHS earlier, why would anyone wait to watch it on SciFi?

Since SciFi Fridays will have to compete with the better written Monk/Psych block even if they wait until late September, why the wait? They are at least 3/4 done with production, why not begin airing early September?

Yes, scifi has sucky broadcast signals, except for DOCTOR WHO, which comes in clear. The rest, blech.

What kills me is that I open up the Best Buy (or Circuit City) circular yesterday and they're already selling FLASH GORDON on DVD. I mean, the pilot just aired on Friday and you can buy it the next day?? We have to wait months if not years for SGA DVDs. bangs head on keyboard.

LOL I thought I was going crazy when I saw 15-7-2007 I was like there are only 12 months, I guess some people write it differently. I write date mm/dd/yyyy.
Genealogists use that type of date system as well, but they usually write out the name of the month. It's easier to read when the numbers are on different sides of the month.


Maybe thats Scfi's plan so they dont have to give us a Season Five
If you watched the Comic-Con video on the Sci-Fi web site, the chick from Sci-Fi seemed pretty determined to watch it sink. She stated rather emphatically that if we (the viewers) didn't start watching it when it aired (as opposed to downloading it) to bring the numbers up, Atlantis was going the way of SG-1. She had quite an attitude about it. Didn't seem like she had any love for the fans.


Because they could make money; they've offered video on demand on other shows, but the gates seem to be the lesser shows in regards to PR. They stuck a full page ad for EUREKA on the back cover of E.W. - they've never done that for SGA and I thinks pigs will fly before SGA graces the backcover, or a full page ad, in EW.
I say we put our own frickin' full page ad on the backcover of EW and see if it makes any difference. We could probably come up with a better hook to get people to watch it. After all, who knows the product better than its fans? With all this broo-ha-ha about 2012, there should be some way for us to say don't be afraid of the future, we're already there - join us. Ok, maybe I'm not the best person to offer a good reason for watching Atlantis, but I'm sure there are a lot of other people out there who are.

10pm Fridays
SCifi- SGA season 4
Competing against:
ABC – Men in Trees
CBS – Numbers
NBC – Las Vegas

Their lead-ins are:
9pm Fridays
ABC – Women’s murder club (new)
CBS – Moonlight (new)
NBC – Friday Night Lights


It’s tough to tell what the competition will do. The 9pm shows aren’t particularly strong; Moonlight is a retread of Forever Knight without the angst, it seems (the ads aren’t very enticing); Friday Night Lights is a critical darling and a good series, but isn’t a hit yet. Women’s Murder Club just sounds dreadful so I have no idea.

Meanwhile, Las Vegas is going into its fifth season and is a sturdy show for NBC. I’m annoyed they’re putting it against SGA as I watch both shows! They’ve got some cast changes. James Caan is departing while Tom Selleck is joining. Men in Trees is a ‘chick’ show so probably won’t compete for audience, but Numbers is geeky enough there could be competition.

Good list, but what about Psych & Monk?

Psych S1 vs. Atlantis S3, well Psych had my HD-DVR's priority. Since Psych replays throughout the weekend, I'll probably give Atlantis S4 priority in my HD-DVR, but in all honesty I enjoy watching Psych more-so than Atlantis.

The only thing Atlantis has on its side is our loyalty to it, and the fact that its more of a serial, where we can't miss an episode and still know what's going on. But when I'm looking for consistently good writing, Atlantis is on the bottom of my favorite shows list. Those 8/20 GREAT Atlantis eps per season make up for the poor ones, but...

Pysch and Monk should be done airing their seasons by then. At least historically they've wound up before the networks begin bombarding the airwaves with soon-to-die shows.

I do agree that SGA could have better writing. It's the characters/actors who draw many fans back. We overlook some bad scripting cuz of the characters, but that's fans. Viewers tend to go 'meh' and change the channel...

While Numbers and Vegas are sturdy shows, both of them have an established fan base by now. Sure there might be cross-overs, but with Atlantis going on its fourth year I doubt that they will lose viewers TO those shows. Of course there are numerous reasons why I show gets renewed, but as far as the aspect of competition going during air time, I'm not worried for that.

sci fi channel on sky is not the same as the one in america.

stargate is shown on Sky One, but doesn't start until october

Hey,

I'm sure this has been asked already, but does anyone know what other channels will be showing SGA season 4 in the UK? I don't have Sky One anymore. Crappy Virgin Media...

Thanks!

That's a very good question, Channel 7 here couldn't give a stuff about putting it on at a decent time. That's why people download it here.
With respect to downloading via bittorrent, I do not know why the sci-fi channel (and others) don't release a legal ad-sponsored version, say around 400-450mb, maybe with a time limit of 6 months to view it, and at the same average quality that most sci-fi channel bittorrent shows are. This I think could add to the ratings to justify more continued production of the show. I have bought the 1st 2 seasons on DVD so far and will get Season 3 sometime soon. Imho the bittorrent stuff is poor visual quality, and I will always buy a quality show on DVD for repeated viewing and better quality. The fact that in a lot of countries this and other shows are shown at stupid times and up to a year late can't help their ratings one bit.
Just my 2c there.

Your guess is as good as the rest of ours!! Probably late next year sometime as a filler at around.. midnight!

Though the new sci-fi channel is showing is so maybe channel 7 won't bother at all.. that still leaves us wondering when it'll actually be shown..

Please don't spell "come" that way. It's...awkward.

Also, please don't triple post.

Well, this thread is so full of spelling errors I'm shocked the person who flamed me for a typo isn't here spewing brimstone and fire ;)

But I wonder if this thread should even still be stickied, as season 4 has/is airing? Hmm...

as for triple posting, does this poster know of the multi-quote feature? Not everybody does.. ;)

You don't need the multi-quote button to quote multiple people though. ;)

I think I've only ever used that button once since it was introduced.

I just want 7 to stop diddily showing new sci-fi series, such as Bionic Woman at prime times, instead of a great new series coming of a 10 year running spectacular thats made billions.

Man, oh, man.

I had never seen the series SG-1 until last year, when I happened to catch a rerun of CotG; and after watching that I picked up the entire series, seasons 1-10 and gorged on them on DVD.

I then started on SG:A (which I had never wanted to see, 'cause I hated McKay in SG-1) simply because I'd watched SG-1 enough times to quote the eps, and immediately marathoned through SG:A seasons 1-3, finishing in November, and then at that time started watching SG:A live.

So, my question is:

HOW DO YOU STAND THE WAIT??????? Whew.

I'm so used to being able to just put the next disk in and not have to wait for the end of the 2 - 3 parters and the next episode for the cliffhanger season endings that I have a nasty feeling that I'm going to go completely nuts between seasons.... :(

UK pretty much follows the same airing schedule as the US...they maybe an episode or two behind.

Canada has just started airing the 3rd season of Atlantis (despite the fact the 3rd season has been on DVD since the summer) the 4th season is airing on the the movie Channel as a pay-per-view feature...season 4 will most likely debut on Space and City TV some time in the fall (the season 4 DVDs will again be out before then)

Just saw a commerical for Season 4 on Canada's SPACE NETWORK. It will premiere on Sunday, March 29th.

Of course due to time shifting across Canada, you will have to check your local listing for the time in which it will show in your area!!!!
