i think the original hot weir was better, a better looker and a better actress.Originally Posted by 2BAM
I did not have the chance to see the original Weir but we have this one now. I think it is always best to be positive and embrace change. An open mind is always the way to go. We have to remember that this is a completely different program except for the obvious simular qualities and it should be viewed as such. You will enjoy yourself much more with this attitude.
The original Dr. Weir was a lot older, like in her 40s. SHe was the doctor from the old Earth 2 series from back in the 90s. She was cuter back then cuz she was a lot younger, not old. hehOriginally Posted by kodamawu
Well......................that stated, Weir rocks!!!
lol interesting perspective, but still comparitively, i think she was better in terms of looks and acting.Originally Posted by LordAnubis
I never had a thing for blondes, actually.Originally Posted by kodamawu
well i'm not saying she's anything to write home about, i'm just saying i think she's comparitively better looking.Originally Posted by Mio
Who, the original? By the way, Weir rocks. An intelligent, and empathetic character. It's great to see someone at the helm that is not your everyday leader. Why be the same as every other series on TV? This is a great concept for a leader, and I think this...........Tori is doing a fantastic job at portraying her.

Jessica Steen is 38... while some would consider that old, she is 4 months younger than Amanda Tapping. That age is just fine to me

i think you should watch lost city parts 1 and 2 before you make up your mind.Originally Posted by 2BAM
and ramne, thanks for that fyi
Since there're already 2 billion threads about this I'll just write the standard comment.
1. Jessica Steen was far superior as Weir. Looks better(not that is matters), sounds better and acts better.
2. Weir is probably the least interesting characters for me, atleast for the moment. She seems to be more hardcore military then Sheppard.
ditto. ^^Originally Posted by aAnubiSs
i wonder what things would've been like with stein or steen or however you spell it.
Hey, it's one of the very few Weir appreciation threads so I must post here. I'm one of the few who like the "new" Weir better than the "old" Weir. Jessica Steen annoyed me for some reason, I don't know why. Now even though Weir isn't my favorite character in the show, I don't think she's the worst.
Why yes, I am aware that I am too sexy for my catRIP Stargate SG-1: The iris may be closed, but the gate will always be spinning, lighting the chevrons in my heart
And to the Sci Fi Channel...
I'm just wincing that this is back again, after the mods had to lock ALL the other threads and create their own.... nothing good can come of this...
1) TPTB decided to recast, as the character and show is their creation and they knew what they wanted from it, I trust that they had a reason for deciding to go with someone other than JS. It seems a shame that people have taken to attacking TH before she even appeared on screen, and have persisted in what it seems like personal attacks on her acting ability, her appearance, and any number of other levels.
There is no debating or discussing at that point, because it simply comes down to a matter of preference, and in this case, the only people who's preference matters is TPTB.
2) I have talked my head off trying to defend the character from any number of people who dislike the character. It seems to me that it comes down, also, to issues that can't be discussed or debated. It seems that there are those in the fandom who are intent on hating the character and bashing her at every attempt. Which is a shame, because SG fandom is generally respectful of parts of the show that we dont' care for but others like. Yet every Weir appreciation thread is immediately piled on by negativity.
I don't jump into threads for characters or elements that i don't like to let the air out of other's balloons. It's just a shame that some take such apparent joy in it.
Amanda Tapping is 38? Damn, she's not that much younger than my mom, who is 42. She looks really good for her age. I still like the new Dr. Weir better. I love intelligent, powerful women...it's a turn on hehe. I also like older women, but I just didn't care for the blonde Weir as much.Originally Posted by Ramne
I agree dude. The new Dr. Weir is a good actress and a fairly good character. The only complaint I have is that we don't get to see her in action much since she's always back at the City or something. I would like to see more of her in an episode, but for the most part, considering where she is and what resources she has, she's done a damn good job at keeping things together. I respect her and think she's evolving as a character. I mean, the show has only been on a month. There is room to grow.Originally Posted by Major Fischer
So far, I've been impressed with all of the recurring characters. I think they work well together and are evolving just like the SG-1 characters did in the first and second season. They've done a great job with character development. The only characters I don't like were the other athosians, but since they're not on the city anymore, who cares!
So that's where I've seen her. Been sondering why she looked familiar.Originally Posted by LordAnubis
She was also in a movie calles On Hostile Ground. I wouldn't have even known it wa her if I hadnn't caught the name in the credits. She looked entirely different!
Ya, Jessica Steen was Dr. Heller, the physician, on "Earth 2", which was an NBC series from like 1993 or 1994. I remember watching it in elementary school, like in fourth grade I think. She started off as a "bad guy", like a double agent, but eventually became good. It wasn't a bad show from what I remember.Originally Posted by Ancient 1
The Sci-fi channel had Earth 2 for a while, but like usual, they stopped playing a good show in place of their usual crap. They used to play Space Above and Beyond too, and that was another cool 90s show.
