More on SG casting spoiler...

A further detail (but not specifically spoilery as to content) about SG-1's S10 Casting Spoiler (not the latest one; the one relating to the 200th ep - everybody with me, now?)



“It’s been a lot of fun to see [RDA] again,” Wright said in an interview. “He’s doing two episodes of SG-1 and three episodes of Atlantis.”

(from http://www.scifi.com/scifiwire/index.php?category=0&id=35782 )



My big reaction to this is: huh. That's... not what I expected. But there are so many balls in the air right now, so many possibilities, that I'm not sure what to think about it, or what to guess.

Yeah. Huh.

Two and three? Well, that's grumpy-making. Unless they're sending him to Atlantis with Daniel! That would be okay. Or with Sam, for that matter; I'd prefer Daniel, but at least some other SG-1 content would scratch my itch at least.

Erm, at least. I am a Bear of Very Little Brain this weekend, I'm afraid.

Yeah. I'm not actually up on the specifics of AT's and MS's time on SG-1 in S10 to speculate knowledgeably. The last I heard... um... I think that AT *was* going to definitely do some SGA eps? More than one? And we know for sure that MS is not doing all 20 eps of SG-1's S10? But I haven't heard if that means he just gets four eps "off"... or, there was some speculation that Daniel's absence from SG-1 might be explained by a trip to Atlantis at last? But I think that last is utter speculation. Still, that'd be keen.

I actually find it incredibly hard to imagine Jack on Atlantis *without* at least one of the rest of SG-1 -- well, pretty much either Daniel or Sam. Whereas I can imagine Sam or Daniel by themselves on Atlantis. But Jack? Not really. And yet, even that could be kind of interesting... because to be honest, there were SG-1 eps in the past where Jack went off on his own, and interacted with people away from his team, and I always did like those eps fine. (I am thinking here of SoG, Chain Reaction, 48 Hours, Paradise Lost... hmm, I see this common Maybourne thread, though...)

But yes, I pretty much agree -- I don't mind SGA getting more of him and SG-1 getting less, actually. (I'm... uncharmed enough by the Orii storyline that I don't mind *not* seeing him participate in that.) In fact... I sort of would *have* to assume that if he went to SGA he'd be acting in the capacity of general, and I can imagine a lot of quite interesting stuff coming out of seeing Jack away from the SGC but functioning as a general, that I'd like to see how they make use of him. But -- I'd prefer him to be interacting with at least some of SG-1. (Jack *and* Daniel *and* Sam on Atlantis = even more dandy.)

I know there's no way they'd do it, because they seem to think Weir is doing a fine job, but I'd love to see Jack go all the way there to chew her out but good for being incompetent. That would make my year.

I actually find it incredibly hard to imagine Jack on Atlantis *without* at least one of the rest of SG-1 -- well, pretty much either Daniel or Sam.

And, of course, "Atlantis episode" doesn't necessarily mean "goes to Pegasus." Could be Earth-based, or hallucination, or flashback, or whatever. (But really I want Jack to get to go to Atlantis. 'Cause I'll bet he misses going offworld.)

(Jack *and* Daniel *and* Sam on Atlantis = even more dandy.)

On the other hand, you send them all--for more than a very brief overlap--and it's an SG-1 episode, you know? Which seems unfair to SGA.

Anyway, it'll be interesting to see what they do with it.

Oh, IF ONLY. Or if he went there to *fetch* Daniel. Say, like, in that story which exists in my head, where Daniel sneaks off to Atlantis and Jack goes after him, heh. But we do know Daniel is supposed to be going to Atlantis at some point, this season. *hopeful look*

I'm already ticked at 3 for SGa and 2 for SG-1. Since one of those 2 is the 200th epsode

I do hope it bodes good things. It could in fact be quite interesting. *nods*

Just reading over this, I realize that what I replied to you last night wasn't all that coherent -- what I mean is, I'm trying like hell to look on the bright side of getting so little Jack on SG-1. (And I agree with you, him being on "200" is really a wash -- I'm one of those who was never all that fond of "Wormhole X-Treme" in the first place, although I can stand it; but it's not my favorite type of humor.)

Remembering that both Daniel and Sam are supposed to be going to Atlantis in S10 makes me *hope*, anyway, that putting Jack on Atlantis means hooking him up with those storylines, which has a potential (at least) to be satisfying to me. Just as, I had my worried about how he'd be used on SG-1, even if at the same time there are certainly things I'd like to see him doing on SG-1 (and not played for farce, such as on "200"). That's why I say... I'm not really sure what to think about it.

huh, i guess they finally got permission to have the original characters in a spin off? er, meaning i'd heard that the jack and daniel characters weren't allowed on sg1 due to some contracting issue with the maker of the original movie. not sure though.

I thought the deal was that Jack and Daniel were the only SG-1 characters who *COULD* be on SGA? Or some damn thing? Ugh, now I'm all confused. Because J&D *have* been on SGA already of course -- the pilot ep. I just thought I remember hearing at the time that it was those two because of some contractual thing.

But they have to have worked out all the problems, since Sam was on SGA this season. *shrug* So, I dunno.

I was going to say, yeah, of the original SG-1 team, only Teal'c hasn't been on SGA. I would've thought the only characters that would be a problem were Jack and Daniel, the carryovers from the original movie.

it's a bit confusing for me.... i vaguely recall something about how they couldn't take the original characters to atlantis, but it's all in the somewhat misty area of my brain. i'd trust your memory more than mine on this one. *g*

i'm just glad they worked it out...if only to keep daniel's head from exploding? hee! ;)
