Does anyone know of any fresh blood that has been added to the writing team for SGU?

Oy.

Thankfully, I know you're joking. :)

TPTB wouldn't be THAT idiotic.

I'd heard that Dr. Seuss had agreed to join and write some rhymes for the younger audiences. :D (Just a joke from one who will be watching the first few episodes.)

It has to have new writers, it needs new blood to survive, otherwise we'll just keep getting rewrites of the same old stories with the same points but just different characters...

I say there should be main writer changes every season, revolving around 2 main writers, one of which steps down and is replaced by someone new at the end of the season ie.

#1 Someone from SGA/SG1
#2 Someone new

End of S1 #1 writes a 2 parter with the help of #3, #1 then steps down and #2 and #3 write S2, end of S2 #2 does a 2 parter with #4, #2 steps down and so on...

Is that a joke or are you serrious?

I am being deadly serious. You think I would make something like that up. These writers are top notch at aiming their material at a younger audiences. And you think you seen dumb storylines from the current crop of writers, you ant seen nothing yet. :p

Now seriously I would love to get some writers from Heroes and lost and even 4400 on to the writing team or the creator of the Babylon universe on board. Someone who can planned throughout the life time of the series.

Considering the complete hash that is now Heroes, yeah, nabbing some of their writers would probably make sense. ;)

Yeah i wouldnt mind writers from heroes or the 4400, while keeping some of our own writers to balance it out and keep the new series firmly cemented in the established Stargate Universe.

As for writers from the Babylon 5 series, I can;t comment as I'm yet to see the show.

Mallozzi stated that he and Mullie will be consulting (with series creators Robert C. Cooper and Brad Wright) and writing "a few scripts" for the series, but that both of them will have considerably more free time unless they can sell their prospective pilot scripts (not related to Stargate)."

great news. People responsible for SGA will be working on SGU. Can we start SGU complaints and misgivings thread?

Lets hire anime writers so we can have incomprehensible plots, dialogue and flashing lights that give seizures to those of us without epilepsy!

I'd like to have the old writers. But then again i wouldn't mind having new writers as long as they write good episodes lol. I'm not fussed i just want to enjoy stargate and see some good episodes. :) lol

F**K! <<<That's me showing my distaste for JM and PM writing for SGU.

Is it really any surprise that M&M will be poisoning the waters of SGU? I'd taken it as a given right from the start. :rolleyes:

Funny, because Mallozzi is apparently a big anime fan. :rolleyes: See where he gets it from.

I think there's more important thing than hiring new writers. Stargate franchise should air of the FOX. with knowing that their show can easily end any day, TPTB would be forced to atract more wievers with their stories.

Have to agree with you on this one. I've LOVED Heroes in the past, not so down with it this season. Sarah Connor Chronicles is better than Heroes so far!

It's always good to get an infusion of new blood into a writing group. They bring new and fresh perspective. I'd actually like to know if they are accepting spec scripts or treatments or if they're just sticking with their group of writers.

I hope SGU doesn't go beyond season 1, and MGM allows Devlin & Co to complete the movie trilogy. At least that way, we'll get to see some decent Stargate once again. Unfortunately, the small circle of friends at Bridge just want to keep their jobs. Quality is not a priority. The very concept of SGU speak volumes.

from concept to screen can differ wildly. I'm hoping, in this case, that it does. . .

The trick is to keep adding new blood before the previous installment is beaten into submission by the old blood. Or better yet, occasionally clear out some of the deadwood. :P

But I digress. You say "new and fresh perspective" as if that's something TPTB actually want. *pat pat* You'll learn, leia, you'll learn. ;)

I thought in the interview they did with Brad Write that the alluded to the fact that they would be looking to bring in some new writers while keeping some of the old writers around.

I could be wrong about that, would have to listen to the interview again to be sure.

It depends on the mix, I guess. If there are more new writers than old, the show may stand a chance... provided the new writers also have the balls to stick to their own ideas and not follow meekly in the footsteps of the old timers. ;)

I keep figuring it'll be more old than new, however, and while that may inject SOME new life into the franchise I think it'll also only be a matter of time before the original writers beat the new guys into submission and ALL of them are churning out the same old crap.

Please, give us writers with SPINE! :D

Couldn't have said it better myseld :D

I can imagin BW and RCC sitting in some conference room with the new writers just knocking back script after script until they get one which they like (probably Replicator related :P)

They are probably sitting around discussing how many scenes they can put the party girl in. (every scene)
