    Here's mine:


    Before season 4 started, after hearing (or avoiding) the various rumors and spoilers, I was:

    Cautiously optimistic


    I watched ____ of the episodes of season 4.

    A few

    I would rewatch ___ of the episodes of season 4.

    two eps I would re-watch. The very first two with Wier and her taking on oberon.

    I think season 4:

    Started out good and got worse...really fast!



    After viewing season 4 I think that:

    It was worse than I expected...far worse than I expected.


    My current attitude toward season 5 is:

    Pessimistic...to non existent. I honestly don't give a rat's behind about this show anymore.

    I am planning on:

    I will watch the two Daniel eps...and that probably all.

    If I’m not planning on watching season 5, I might be brought back if (multiple answers!):


    There are changes in TPTB




    gee...made me realize just how fast this show tanked. I really was looking forward to having Sam come in as command. Wier having a real arc. Carson's return. McKay's sister coming back...but everything I was looking forward to...just didn't work for me.

        I couldn't agree more. I was looking forward to the same things. It didn't work for me either.

            Oh goddess, I just finished watching Dr. Who season 3... Holy hell, now that was a rollercoaster-ride worth mentioning! Jee, I was literally on the edge of my seat, excited as hell. Haven't felt like that in ages.

            The soundtrack is on repeat, and I feel great as a Whovian.

            I waited quite a while before I started watching season 3 cause Rose, the Doctor's companion and my fave, was no longer going to be there (Billie Piper wanted to leave) ... I didn't know what to think of Martha, the new companion, but she grew on me ... fast, really fast.

            Everything Dr. Who gave me - excitement, great storytelling, brilliant character development, awesome effects without killing the budget, emotions, continuity, 3D characters even if they appeared only once in an episode, magic - SGA failed to give me in season 4.

                Hi Falcon.

                I haven't seen Dr. Who yet. There are however so many confusing DVD releases. Just of the top of my head there are "Beneath the Surface" and "Complete Davros Collection" or something like this. I wouldn't know where to start. Do you have any suggestions?

                  Sorry, I have only seen the new series so can't help you there, but I think Reefgirl has some knowledge on that. I suggest you turn to her for help.

                    Thanks. Will ask Reefgirl then. You already helped a lot. I didn't know that there was an old series and a new one. I thought as the longest running sci-fi show it was one and the same show.

                      It is, but between the Eighth and the Nineth Doctor there is quite a gap... Many years passed by before they continued the show. It confuses me too, really... I didn't even like Dr. Who when I first caught it on TV. But boy, did it grow on me fast.

                          I hear that from so many people that Dr. Who is a great show. I thought about finding that out for myself now. But when I watch a show I like to start at the beginning.

                          I think we're hijacking the thread with Dr. Who and I haven't even seen it yet.

                                I am planning on:

                                Watching most to all of season 5
                                Watching a few episodes of season 5
                                Not watching season 5 at all

                                If I’m not planning on watching season 5, I might be brought back if (multiple answers!):

                                There are changes in the cast
                                There are changes in TPTB

                                I’m bored enough
                                I read great reviews from people on GW who are watching the season

                                That´s it
                                I was never fully anti and my attitude towards S4 was mostly bc of Carter, whose presence simply didn´t work. So now, when she is gone, I will give S5 a chance.
