I miss Chuck, but I also like Banks!

Where was Chuck? How dare he be sleeping or on leave!:confused:

I hope he's back next week!

The actor was probably busy just like Walter wasn't the only the technician on SG1

I wonder if there would have been a 6th season they were hoping to make Banks a more prominent character and perhaps pulling back a bit with Keller. They would have had another female to work with who was a bit more badass than Jen. And since they seem to be into the matchmaking business lately, they could have paired her with Ronon.
(Which, admittedly, makes me happy. :))
But I really miss Chuck, they could have alternated the eps they were in and satisfied both Chuck and Amelia fans.

Amelia was awesome. It's sort of like the first season of SG-1 (Carter can fight?) And how Ronon interacted with her was great. "If any more of them show up, just do what you did earlier."

I liked how Amelia knew how to fight. She kicked some major hybrid butt! Now we know Gate techies don't just sit behind the DHD all day. But I do miss Chuck. He was cool.

What evidence do you have for that?

The evidence that Chuck's disappeared or the evidence that Chuck doesn't have boobs ;)

Amelia seems to be in foreground more often recently, and she's

She seems less of a background character than Chuck was/is now

Well, considering her immediate chemistry with Ronon and the fact that she's standing next to him in that shot, maybe she has more of a reason to be there than Chuck.

and i'm sure it has absolutely NOTHING to do with him getting other work and not being available :rolleyes:

I would have said something similar, but he beat me to it.

Is this something that Chuck shared at the convention this past weekend, considering all the filming is done???

As far as I know, Chuck was still David Hewlett's stand-in so he should have still been working, just not on-screen. :)

I like them both, it's a shame if the producers felt they need to choose one over the other.

How about have them both! Chuck can dial the gate and Amelia can monitor communications...problem solved!

he did a few eps of sanctuary, and seems to be working on something called 'his name is jason, 30 years of friday the 13th', at least according to IMDB
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0132310/

which supports the suggestion that it's no conspiracy or anything sinister, just an actor being involved in another project

I think Chuck has the day shift, Amelia night shift! or vise versa.

The writers would never ship Ronon with Chuck. :mckay: I like the idea of them taking shifts, occasionally being on the same shift together.

Duuuuuude. There're tv reality shows for that condition. You don't have to stay like Kenny Rogers forever. ;)

I miss Chuck too. But, I like Amelia also. Girl can fight! Chuck only got to press buttons.

The producers seem to be writing in more women in the last eps. In Whispers, we had a whole team of women. In the Lost Tribe, we even got to see women in the Travelers clan. Maybe the producers are testing them out to see if they could bring some over to the movie to SGU.

its not luck we havent seen much of chuck this season, hes been in 5 episodes which is pretty good for a recurring character, although banks has been in 7, i hope chuck does get a little more action but i do actually quite like banks and think that the infusion of new characters mixed with the old ones makes the whole thing seem fresher

I saw that Chuck is going to be on tonight's episode - Remnants.

Good for Chuck.

I love Amelia. She's one of the best minor characters that Atlantis has ever said. I know Chuck is really meant to be the show's answer to Walter but he never made much impact on me.

I don't know about you guys, but I hope that Chuck is in the Movies. I'd like to see Amelia in SGU,though, even though I like Chuck more.
