    Any time Twinny. I figured we could all use a little thunking

    Precisely! Don't give it up yet, the finish line is in sight, lets go get it

      Yeah, like Idlewild said: to the finish line!!!!

      I agree with all of you. We should be happy, that we got this far. But I am lso extremely disappointed that he's back for only 5 episodes. At first I felt like it's actually a bad news, instead of being jsut happy, that he's back. I jsut hope the episodes he plays in are some major ones.

        We've also I suppose have got to be realistic and remember that we don't yet know how he reappears in Kindred nor what he's job/post/role would be afterwards. I mean you'd at least expect him to go back and visit his poor family too so he could be gone a while. Maybe his role means that (hopefully for now) it doesn't make sense to have him there too often - it might even be that he turns up again in something like episode 12 and then is in 5 of the last 8 or something...

        (I must stop secretly hoping that Keller is the cherished character we lose, that it happens in ep 15 and Beckett's in the last five - Jewel's lovely, the character is bland....)

        In something more cheery, every single time I've come on to GW today I've had the Beckett banner which made me smile no end

          Aw, you optimist, you.

          Well, I'm not secretly hoping, but I'm with you. But as the character is cherished, it would be more likely to be Carson again, rather than Keller

            *joins Oda in hugging the thread* I just want to say thanks to everybody, in the almost year I've been here it's been truly wonderful!

            Oh I'm wishing for that too, if that were to be the case I would be THRILLED with five episodes. Alas TPTB do not so freely give out their plans for the season so soon

            Erb, I honestly don't think that they will kill off Carson a second time, the first time didn't go over so well. They realize what we fans are capable of now, I will be very very surprised if they try the same trick twice.

              Okay... don't mean to double post, but I wanted to dedicate my 1000th post to this thread

              Oh, and a big huge CONGRATS to the thread on reaching 18000posts!!

              This calls for some pic spam... how about some from The Gift

              Spoiler:





              *bangs head against desk* computer is craaaaawling this morning, so as a result, I'm not gonna bother resizing the rest of these (uploaded them a long time ago... before I realized it was smarter to set PB to resize them automatically XD), if some of them are ginormous, well, just enjoy a big pic on me















              And now to finish it all off with alittle whumpage

                I don't think there's much of a chance of them getting rid of Keller after making Jewel a regular for season five. I figure she is here to stay until the end.

                Erb, I honestly don't think that they will kill off Carson a second time, the first time didn't go over so well. They realize what we fans are capable of us now, I will be very very surprised if they try the same trick twice.
                I was being rather facetious about Carson.

                Many pro posters are happy to quote you ratings numbers. Think of it this way. If people are unhappy with some things, but still watch, what motivation would tptb have to give us less Keller and more Carson?

                So what are the fans truly "capable" of? Are there enough fans capable of walking away to make a difference in the all-important ratings numbers?

                If tptb are satisfied with the numbers they are receiving and these numbers are representative of a core audience who will continue watching no matter what, what is the incentive to change?

                  Has Paul said anything regarding the release, a calming word to fans that he is happy he is back for even a few episodes...

                    What do you really expect him to say? He's an actor without a steady job. There's a writer's strike. In his business, it's best not to burn any bridges. I imagine there are very few actors who have any real power (megastars that can command the big bucks) and even the hot star of today can be forgotten tomorrow.

                    I imagine he's happy to have some work. I think he enjoyed his time on SGA and enjoyed working with cast and crew.

                    I don't expect anything negative to be said by him. But it doesn't change the fact that he had a heavily recurring role, was popular enough to be added as a regular, and then offed to make way for someone else.

                    While I think this is par for the course for this kind of business, it doesn't make it any nicer just because it's common.

                      2. The beloved Dr. Carson Beckett returns for five episodes!

                      It’s impossible to write “Dr. Carson Beckett” without using the term “beloved” I’ve noticed. Anyway, yes, it’s true, Paul McGillion will be back with us for 5 episodes. It was great having him back on set in season 4 and we all look forward to seeing significantly more of him this year. “How is this possible?”you ask. “I thought he was dead!”you say. Hey, now that you mention it, he WAS dead! How does that work? Well, tune in to the last few episode of season 4 to find out.

                      Thank you for the heads-up, scifan! But I think we can all agree that JM's interpretation of "significantly more" has a whole other notion than mine. Do these guys do anything besides using Beckett for advertising purposes lately and then dropping him right back into the "almost ignored" bag?
                      Har-har, "significantly more". I think it's significantly less than of what almost everyone would like to see. So I guess five is "significantly more" than two? Five is one fourth, but it's not enough.

                      What a vile, wicked man he is! Shame on him, playing us all. Well, we're smarter than that, aren't we Mallozzi!?

                      Kinda a big random bunch of pictures, lol, but I'm happier now.
                      I'm much happier now too =]

                          For anyone interested in fanfiction, I'm recommending this one:

                          http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4003628/...re_these_tears

                          It's not completed, but the author updates often and I've found the story to be very gripping to this point. Major Carson whumping!

                          And, since I have been lax about any thunking...
