    In meantime, what bothers me from all this is that the movie to be made will now incorporate a far larger cast, a hybrid cast, and that too may bomb!

    Didn't anyone over in their ivory towers ever ever stop to think that quality over quantity was the missing ingredient in the recipe? Subtle flavors and seasonings make an entire concoction oh so delicious.
    Yeah... I thought it was odd that BW actually suggested that the next Stargate film could include the casts from Atlantis and SG-1. That was a bit of a surprise. At one point, I would've been cheering.

    However, considering they have a hard time utilizing all of the actors and characters on the series separately, I honestly don't see how they could successfully utilize a combined cast.

      Yes, it's hard sometimes to remain positive. Support for AT quickly slides into disgust at opportunities lost.

        They wanted to create a different show, but were not allowed to make sweeping changes, but sweeping changes they did make. They sidelined the the big three to all intents and purposes, or changed their characters to fit the new direction. They should have known it wouldn't work.

        There was talk of a second spin off. Why couldn't they continue the old SG1 for another 2 seasons. Round it off as it should be done, with all character's dignity intact and Sam in command, I'm sure the ratings would have held a lot better than they have. If so they would still have got their chance at a second spin off and that would have been their opportunity to secure their own jobs and paychecks (cough) for another few years.

        As it is they have completley lost it. Do you think that the people who have done this to the show will be offered the chance to create a another spin off? If it were me I'd be asking someone new to take over - if I went for a second spin off.

        Anyway as someone has already mentioned. This was only the first show. Ratings (as well as rantings) could improve - especialy if the eps get better and word gets around.
        Yep, we may be making much ado about nothing ... premature articulation. (Blushing)

        Er, then again ... I just passed a rather large woman in the hallway, dressed in Valkyrie costume and she was smiling ....

          These two actors are a delight to watch ... they have such good acting chemistry ... their beats/timing with each other are spot on. Again, I'm not talking "ship" here, just two fine actors being in scenes and bringing out the best in each other.

          Another faux pas by TPTB.
          TPTB are still trying to steer RDA away from SG-1. And truthfully, without him, the show never would have gotten off the ground and I wouldn't have gotten to see Amanda and watch her work effortlessly and beautifully with him.

              Hey Samandans! Can I have your attention please?!

              I have an idea that might help cheer us all up. I snurched this idea from another fandom I'm on and well I thought it could be fun to see what you all would say.

              Ready to play Let's Pretend?


              Here's the game: Say that Amanda is having a hard time deciding what scenes as Sam to put on her demo/promo reel as she's getting ready to send it off to various casting agents and such looking for the next great role. She comes to you and asks for your input. What scenes from SG1 as Sam would you put on her demo/promo reel?

                Sam: Yep, Daniel and I are just leaving now...uh huh...What? Really? That's...(looks at Daniel)... We'll be back by six.

                Daniel: Who was that?

                Sam: Walter. He says the General got his tongue stuck on the frozen yogurt machine.

                Daniel: We really should give him more to do.

                    Screeeeeeeeeeech .... gears clashing and changing ... okay ...

                    1. Elevator scene from Singularity
                    2. Force-field scene with Jack in Divide and Conquer
                    3. Scene with her father Jacob in Grace. What a display of emotions!
                    4. Scene with Janet in 2010 when told she can't have children; confrontation scene with Jack in 2010 at his cabin.

                    NOT FAIR ... I have to stop, these are coming to mind so easily and others have to join in!!

                    Great idea to showcase Sam scenes!

                      How to choose? So much good work. Lots of good selections over at the best AT acting by season polls. Anyone have the link handy?

                      This isn't exactly a moment for the acting highlight reel, but I was watching " Deadman Switch" yesterday and one little moment struck me. When they've been captured by Aris Boch & are coming down the steep hill, AT/Sam slips a little bit and has to catch herself. Just a nice human moment that they left in.

                          Michael: "Uuuh...yeah, this P.A. job you've given me is harder than I thought it would be. I think you've double booked now for tuesday, lunch with RDA".
