The Outcast and The Outsider
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/...6a2745ffc8c7fcThe series that gets the most boost in the 18-49 demo from DVR playback is Sci Fi Channel's "Stargate: Atlantis," which on average doubles its numbers when factoring in Live+7 data.

Science fiction movies are weak just where the science fiction novels are strong - on science. But they can supply something the novels can never provide - sensuous elaboration by means of images and sounds. Science fiction films are not about science. They are about disaster.

Hello all, I'm new to the forum, but have been a Stargate fan forever.
I do agree with all this. I really thought Atlantis had another good season in it also, but I'm not surprised about the cancellation either. It's been talked
around all over the place in the last few months.
I will continue to watch Sci-fi, I will support Amanda Tapping's new show, and the new Stargate series. When Atlantis began, I didn't know any of the cast members except a couple, and I grew to love them all, I hope for the same results with the new Stargate.
And you're right, how many shows get canceled, and the fans never hear anything from them again? Too many to name. At least we get something, even if it's not as good as a series, it's better than what most shows get.
So I will continue on watching this last season, and look for all the actors from now on and support them in what they choose to do.
Personally, I think three series would be great.
But I also think that the franchise could start falling into the StarTrek trap: Too many spin-offs and people start losing interest. Instead of introducing us to more and more new characters, IMHO, they should embelish the characters they already have. Give us a deeper look into their personalities, what their childhood was like, etc...
It's quite amusing to see that outside of the Showtime era, both SG-1 and SGA lasted five years, and were mediocre experiences in light of what was done on Showtime.
Take it that way: at least it couldn't go more downhill.
Oh, wait. There's that movie they're planning now. Ahhrr.
I wouldn't have a problem with the cancellation if it hadn't been made clear that it meant the series would end on a cliffhanger.
Despite any rumors, I believe MGM and the production team ultimately made the decision to end the series. And I say kudos to them. Go out strong and then reappear with a different show to recapture the imaginations of fans everywhere.
They had the best show in their hands and they didn't lose fans, although they made one mistake after the other.
They lost their main female character(Weir), they damaged the other(Teyla) and yet the rest of the cast(mainly Mckay and Zelenka if you ask me) managed to keep the fans interested and coming, more and more every year.
And in case some people haven't realized it.... it's not the STARGATES that had kept people interested all those years. It was the CITY OF ATLANTIS.
No other sg++ will even that...
SGA had fans of it's own, we weren't SG+++ fans, but SGA fans. It's just that simple..
Atlantis was the main character of the show and they just let it .... sunk
