    Post Loud Vision: Judge/Shanks Exclusive Interview

    Thanks to Mesh for the heads up on this one,

    From Loud Vision:

    http://www.loudvision.co.uk/stargate.htm

    (Please follow the link for the complete interview.)

    Stargate SG-1
    Exclusive interview with Michael Shanks and Chris Judge

    So, as we head into an eighth year of adventures for the SG-1 team, are there any chances of a ninth?

    MS: Well, never say never. We were happy to go back to do Season 8 Ė the numbers in the US are, apparently, growing. So, who knows. Everybody knows that when something has yet to reach its peak, companies are loathed to axe it. Weíll have to wait and see. The lucrative side of the show wasnít in question, in terms of whether or not it was financially feasible. Having said that, at this point, after eight years of a show, it might just not be financially feasible anymore.

    We really take every year as it comes. I mean, I took the seventh season with the notion that it was going to be the last as well, like after leaving for a year, then coming back, and thinking, ďWell, itís just one year of the show,Ē and I happily signed on for another one. So, it certainly depends on how things go. Iím certainly enjoying it at this point. So long as youíre continuing to tell good stories, and so long as youíre happy in your work, then thereís no reason that I can think of not to sign on for another year.

    CJ: Well, the great thing is that you know that when you reach a plateau, you know that itís going to go down from there. Weíre still ascending the mountain, so to speak. Itís like weíve got brand new storylines, so we havenít even had to rehash old stuff. So, you know, the show is still creatively growing. Iím not one of the decision makers, but so long as that atmosphere so prevails, thereís no reason to end it.

    **snippity doo-dah**

    Sounds like they don't mind to do another season

    I think if they keep the seasons going the way they are now, they would be fine.

    I love how CJ was like "We are still skalling the mountain." Good line.

    I think a 9th year would be great, but only if RDA stayed in command (and therefore in the show). I also think that the team needs someone else, so it doesn't always feel as though RDA is missing. Jonas is perfect for that role, as it saves the writers having to invent a totally new character, and all the relationships (especially the relationship between Teal'c & Jonas that was so wonderful) are already in place.

    Amen, i would like Jonas to come back, even though we already have Daniel on the team, but hey, two smart people are better than one

    I'd also like to see Jonas again, but the writers would need to come up with a rock solid reason to bring him back.

    Jonas is like a cross between Sam and Daniel....I don't think it would work out. But hey, I am for him coming back, I loved his character. Although he is still a very important character off-screen.....

    My first reaction was kind of snarky about CJ's "We haven't had to rehash old storylines." But then I thought about it, and I have to grant him that point.

    There've certainly been tropes that've resurfaced, but I've not gotten the feeling of seeing the same story over again (for a contrasting example of this, one need only recall The X-files).

    And there've been the infamous "homages", but they at least retell stories within the SG universe.

    So, yeah. Point granted.

    Bringing back Jonas would obviously involve Kelwona (SP??) in some way. Personally I'd like to see the Gate connect, Sgt. Walter say "Receiving... Jonas Quinn's IDC?", Jack allow him to open the Iris, and then Jonas dive through with a few other people before screming "Close the Iris".

    We then find out that Ba'al broke his promise and has come to Kelwona looking for the Naquadria, and that Jonas only had seconds to escape with a few people before the Stargate was found and taken by Ba'al's forces.

    Saves us having to have an episode dealing with Kelwona politcis again, but it right away gives a reason for Jonas to stick around - now he REALLY can't go back.

    Not only does it save a politics episode, it's plausible! Although, I don't know if Jonas has an IDC at the moment, he'd probably just send a signal saying "Help, quickly, Ba'al's here, open the iris." It'd also be a little more dramatic.
