    of course you can, but it depends on how you define "people you dont know"

      I never really watched the West Wing, but a heart attack at so young an age is a horrible way to go.

      I know. He was such a good actor.

      ETA- I didn't mean to dampen anyones squeeing. So sorry.

        The infinite plot wormhole. Sucks in potential storylines and replacement characters alike.
        Yepp, it's blank down here.

          And I'm really hoping they let her stay that way this time, because I've has just about enough of the "Sam's Issues" show.
          are you done disrespecting this thread? the essence of this thread was to celebrate and respect amanda tapping, not go into other diatribe of why you hate sam/jack ship.

            Sorry about the OT.
            i just heard. how horrible. i love the west wing and i'll certainly miss him.

            i wonder how they'll deal with it
            Where in the World is George Hammond?

              I thought I posted about the Carter special gun, but obviously not.

              The point I wanted to make, was that there are two ways of dealing with things in life. The first way is to scream, cry and stamp your feet, the second is the laugh and get on with things.

              Amanda, the amazing woman that she is, seems to take this attitude that it's in the past, so get on and don't dwell. "Yeah, I could have gotten hurt, but I didn't, so why stress?"

              And this seems to be the case in other stuff too. Like the miscarriages and everything else. It takes such strength of character to do that, a strength that I don't have. I wish I hada fraction of it.

                  you hit the nail on the head there because yes she is a brilliant person just because of that attitude towards life, to want to live and love it. to laugh and smile and get on with things. its a highly admirable trait of hers and i love that about her

                  but not only that, and I guess this is the main reason why I love Amanda so much, is that yes, she has this great attitude towards life, but more importantly, she has given it to me as well.
                  nobody else has done that, to completely shift my outlook on life, to bring me up and out of my years of depression and pessimism. she has turned me into such an optimistic person who WANTS to make the most out of everything, to want to live my life as best as I can

                  thats something you cant find in many human beings, the ability to change somebodies life for the better. Amanda is amazing, she really is.

                    I have only watched West Wings a few times, but I remember him on other shows. My heart goes out to his friends, family and fans.

                      Yes, in terms of characters. When Daniel died (for the 50 somethingth time) and they introduced Jonas, or even when RDA left, why didn't they bring in previously established characters like Satterfield or Hailey (who had O'Neill's sense of humour and stuff) instead of inventing loads of new ones?

                          This is something you can see in the fans. It's so inspiring to see that she's turned lives around, like yours.

                            my question, not to totally derail this with OTedness is....after MS left and given the mixed reaction to Jonas...why didn't tptb get the inkling that, if the show continued too much longer, that they could benefit from having some regular guest stars who weren't aliens, but were members of the SGC and could , potentially, step up to fill the shoes of the existing characters should they choose to leave/need time off.

                            Take atlantis for example. we have major lorne, who was a 'almost red shirt of the week' in enemy mine and a throw away character, who is now a semi-regular in at least the first half of s2.

                            well, let's play the theoretical and have joe flanigan decide to take 6 months off...any bets on whether or not Kavan smith could step upand at least fill in partially for joe's character?

                            it would certainly be an easier transition to upgrade a semi-regular to regular status than to create and make and introduce a new character out of nothing and expect everyone to just accept the 'new guy'

                              That's very true! Especially if they know it's coming. Instead of writing off the beloved supporting characters on SG-1. Maybe that's why there are so many characters on Atlantis.

                                There's been no official release as to how they'll deal with it. I'm just too saddened by this. First, I lose my pet parakeet of 10 years today and then I find out about John Spencer. Watching "Shades of Grey" and "Beneath the Surface" helped a bit.
