    MGM, Sci-Fi has ruined the wtf ending of Kindred part 1 for a lot of people
    A word of advice... there are creatures that live between this dimension and the next, fiendish creatures that feast on the suffering of an entire world to satiate their eternal hunger. Support the Gateworld Cantina or suffer the fate of all who fall into the clutches of the 'Eladrith Ynneas'

    Totally agree with you there. The speakers say in the lines of "And you won't believe what's happenening in the last five minutes and showes, you know who. It would have been better if they just cut there, to surprise the wievers who hasn't spoiled themself rotten.

    Yeah I agree, Sci-fi should have let people know Carson was going to return in these next two eps without spoiling or fiving too much away in in the promo trailer...

    For people that have not spoiler'd themselves, the MGM one is better...


    However, since i love spoiler'izing myself, I liked the Kindred one, even though i'd seen that scene before, i love seeing it...

    It's a joke to even call this a spoiler. I try to avoid any plot information prior to episode airing, but it says Beckett returns on the front ****ing page of Gateworld. Good luck dodging spoilers when people no longer care about keeping em' secret.

    Guess you're right
    But some people actually avoid places they know will give out spoilers.
    And if they are smart, just go directly to the forum, if they have it bookmarked or something. And at the fourm avoid spoilers, but that is a whole lot of avoiding and you can't avoid stuff like this for too long.

    Scifi has a history of ruining surprises when it comes to Stargate. This one probably tops it. for any viewer/fan avoiding spoilers, they've just driven the nail in the coffin.

    I predicted they'd spring that surprise in the last five minutes, but I suppose it was downright stupid not to think they'd screw it up in the ad as well

    Well, I think all the previews were always better on MGM than on Sci-fi, it's even got a better quality.

    When SCI FI is airing the character's return in their on-air promos 50 times per day, I think the cat is out of the bag. At that point it's not just people who venture onto Stargate Web sites that will know, but just about everyone who watches SCI FI between 10:59 p.m. Friday and 10 p.m. the following Friday.

    Cast comings and goings are news. As a news site, we have to cover them. If you knew what you were talking about, you'd know that for months after this news broke -- in April of 2007! -- GateWorld went to great pains to report the news while keeping the names "Carson Beckett" and "Paul McGillion" off the home page.

    Well, I am assuming everyone who is reading this has seen both promos, so I don't need to use spoiler tags.

    I knew they were going to let the cat out of the bag in the promo, not just because its SciFi (whose marketing department has been repeatedly deservedly flamed) has a bad habit of being lax, but also because of the whole "Beckett fans" factor. I have friends who are casual fans, and thought Carson was gone for good, and who are now going to make sure they don't miss next week.

    Really my biggest complaint would be that they said it would happen in the last five minutes. If I were strictly a Carson fan, I might tune in only for the second half of the show. I felt that was a even bigger mistake then usual on the part of Scifi.

    If they're going to go ahead and promote his return in the episode, I think it's actually wise of them to specify that it's at the very end. Otherwise they're begging for fan outcry that Carson didn't play a big part in the episode.

    I remember a bit of fan outcry over TNG's "Unification, Part 1." Paramount advertised the big appearance of Spock in TNG, and the whole episode turned out to be about Picard and Data trying to find him. Of course he shows up at the very end and delivers the last, single line of dialogue.

    i think, if i were editing the promo, i'd have done it 'you won't believe what happens in the last 5 minutes'...then cut to a shot of their reactions nad keep the gobsmack in

    but hey, wasn't me
