View Full Version : Was Vegas done as a favor for the Actors Only?

it seems strange to everyone that they would do an episode like vegas at the end of the final season and there were too many earth-based episodes this season as well. granted vegas was good but thats not what im talking abut. im talking about whether the writers did this episode as a going away present for the actors, if you know what i mean.

No - they didn't know it would be the final season when it was first pitched.

And there was only one other Earth-based episode this season, Brain Storm.

I wondered about that too. This was definetly a Joe Flanigan episode. He was back in his "CSI/Lawyer/cop element" so to speak.

i was suggesting that because the actors in the show are probably scouting for roles right now and in their mind it would be best for them to get out of that sci fi stuff and get acess to real roles such as CSI, etc. So clearly that episode shows their potential in being able to do those grounded realistic roles. maybe this was meant to be just that; a way to make them recognizable among casting directors.

That's exactly what I thought Duneknight.

If you've seen the CSI Miami episode where Joe Flanigan played a bad guy then you know he can play a pretty good bad ass charcter too. I wish them all well in whatever the future holds for them. :)

Didn't JF say he would love to be in a western? Man was kickin' those jeans and boots...

I think the camera operators, director, editing staff, soundtrack people, and the make-up artist would have had a bit of a lark on this one too. They all got to do something a bit different.

If that's the case, where were the other actors and actresses then?

Just sayin... ;)

No, this one was for the cameo's of the higher ups. Hey, look we got you an episode that you can cameo in and get to go to Vegas too. Isn't that nice?
