    Of course he is going to due to the fact that he is the one that we know better and have liked for so long.

    I never did doubt it.

    I'd like to know what the people that say "they like both equally" think, or even if any Keller fans agree with this statement.

    I think Carson added more dynamic than Keller could have in this particular episode given his history with both the Wraith and the Hoffan plague.

    But, again, you're attempting universalize a highly subjective notion. People like either character for different reasons.

    They are different characters with different histories and they both bring their own elements to the show.

    Nope, no doubt.

    The dart cockpit scene alone was worth watching the episode. I kept wondering why they didn't do this type of thing between Carson and Rodney sooner. But no, they axed him with so much potential still left in the character. Gee, who else could they have done this to??? To think that if it wasn't for the Save Carson Beckett Campaign and other efforts, we wouldn't have seen some of this potential come to fruition.

    I like Beckett more than Keller, he is really funny, especially with Rodney as the dart scene showed. I still like Keller as well though and I'm glad we have seen a bit more of her this season.

    Well I loathe Keller with a passion so my answer may be a little biased

    I just like Carson, I turn off when I see Keller.

    I haven't been fussed about clone!Carson at all, in fact would have preferred them to keep him dead . BUT I adored him in this episode and his interaction with the other characters! I didn't realise how much I'd missed it

    I didn't realize I felt this strongly about the whole Keller/Carson thing, but watching Outsiders I felt a palpable sense of relief having Carson as the SGA doc. Things seemed back in their proper place.
    (Mainly, though, I think it's the idea that now almost every time Keller is onscreen, it reminds me of the McKeller ship, which I really don't like.)

    Not to turn this into an Anti-Keller thread but I prefer Carson over Keller anyday. I just think Carson's character has more to offer on the dynamic and drama end. A love triangle does not interest me, and I would watch BSG if I wanted that. What interests me is good friendship bonds, and seeing someone willing to sacrifice their life to save others. That to me is more interesting. Not who's banging who.

    Yeah, Carson probably does. I still like Keller plenty though.

    I don't hate Keller, but Carson to me is more interesting.

    Carson has his strengths while Keller has hers. He just happens to have more experence with the Hoffan drug just like I would trust Keller more when it comes the "Queen"drug

    I'm happy with either doctor, but i really wish they'd come up with a good reason for Beckett to disappear every so often.

    When they discovered him in season 4, he talked about how he'd missed them all and how all he wanted to do was return to Atlantis. But now he's back, he can't get away quick enough and it plays really strangely to me.

    I know the actor is only signed for about 5 episodes, so they've spaced them out and varied the style of story, but in the context of the character it doesn't make any sense.

    I actually didn't like Carson in this episode... the acting was a bit still at times and the constant plays at humor were annoying since it was a rather dark episode and I was enjoying that.

    Plus... Carson isn't a marksman. Can someone please explain to me why he was able to take out 8 Wraith soldiers, taking cover, while standing in the open, with a pistol he's never used before?

    I could do that with any pistol you give me and i have limited experience, and usually with rifles. Why? Cant you?

    So if I gave you a pistol and shoved you into a room with 8 Wraith soldiers hiding behind walls and shooting at you, while you were standing in the middle, with no cover, you could take them all out without being hit?

    Okay, sure...

    I prefer Carson as a doctor and he is far more convincing than Keller will ever be. I still would prefer him to stick to the role of doctor and not rambo Carson. The scene on the hive ship was rediculous and it makes the Wraith to be complete idiots.. Four of them can't hit anyone but Carson is on target each time even they he is just randomly shooting...

    I have no idea why tptb replaced Carson for Keller. She brings nothing to do the show for me whatsover except a silly love triangle.

    I'm one of those people that like both characters, but not equally. I think Keller is good because of the aspects a female doctor brings to the show, similar to what Janet brought in SG-1 - and also because I agree with Rodney that she is HOT.

    I like Carson better because he is a more dynamic character. Keller easily fits into 2-3 roles: doctor, conscience, and sometimes the surprise necessary force/warrior as we saw last week. Carson can fill all those roles, as we saw in this episode, but also so many more. There is also the friendship that exists between the team and Carson. Of course we'd go out of our way to protect or help Keller, but it isn't the same as when Carson needs us.
