I have to roll my eyes at the niavity of some of the fanboys. That answer pretty much proved that Brad couldn't give a toss about SGA, otherwise he would be having discussions about BOTH movies. Isn't he the head of the franchise, if he doesnt "have discussions", then who does??
How many more years will these adoring fanboys fall for this crap. Brad and co never had ANY intention of making an SGA movie. They seem to find Atlantis a dirty word. They won't even mention it unless prompted to do so. Now we are meant to believe that SGA character(S)? (McKay) will feature in SGA because Brad cares so much about the SGA fans and wants to do somehting nice for us. Friggin BULLSHIT. He couldnt care less about the SGA fans or for most of the SGA cast and the only reason they are bringing in SGA characters is to try and get more viewers to support their crap. I think it's pretty dispicable getting SGA actors to try and save their crappy sinking ship. They were quick to toss the SGA actors overboard and didnt want anymore of the campy SGA style or the subpar acting, but they're suddenly good enough to try and save their sinking pile of poo.
I agree with you.
And, if rumors are right and a SGA-character will have a cameo on SG-shitty I would really bet it was a order from SyFy and not the fan-wishes. I'm pretty sure about it after all the spoken and unspoken words between TPTB and the SGA-cast.
I agree and you know why. JM'S also said that having the sga member on there is not a stunt because if it was it would have been done in the first 10 episodes (which means the cameo is late in the season).
My answer to this - had they known how badly SGPOO would do in the ratings then they would have had an sga member in the first ten eps. However they had already spun the first ten eps and they had nearly finished filming a good portion of them. so even if they did want to put sga in its to freaking late to do it properly
Im sure somebody on here would know exactly but im sure that by the time the ratings had hit there all time low sgu season 2 was well into production.
This is what I wish would happen:
The first 10 episodes air, they get such crappy ratings that SGU is cancelled by the time the second half of the season airs.
Then the episode with the SGA person airs and gets a huge boost in the ratings for that 1 episode.
Would serve them right.
That's possible because SGA-cast have a strong fanbase. Before SGshitty aired I was pretty sure SG-1 had the bigger one but after free fall of ratings within the cameo-episodes I get weak about that. But when I read all about a cameo of a SGA-character there are only two choices (and that is different from the character). For main cast there are some interest of a cameo, for other characters (example Keller) not so much.

Yeah, we need to get the new forum back up. The second season will be one big fart in the elevator from what I've heard. Just like "It's going to get better" I guess with Coop gone it's just Brad Wright's and Mollozzi's stillbirth now. I'm waiting to hear the budget's been cut now. Watch for less CGI in the latter season episodes. Or better still, don't watch at all.
I'm sure bringing in a few SG/SGA people again () is to shut them up at the conventions.
Maybe they'll rename it Stargate Universe Doomed and run it on Tuesday night.

One Really Long Update.
Alright, I just checked the blog (so you don't have to), and some interesting stuff has been going on.
I haven't been checking the blog for a while so, there's a lot to cover, but I'll try to make this as short as possible.
First, Mr. Mallozzi posted some information about the SGA stars that will cameo on SGU during its next season. I'm not going to try to cut and paste it all, so I'll just provide links.
Now, I'll reply to a few things that stood out for me.
First, we have Melissa (who used to post here under another name) and her post:
Well, Melissa. I'm sorry to break it to you, but you're going to find "Mel Gibson-esque" rants at Joe's blog, GW, Syfy.com, and other places too. They are not exclusive to sgusucks.com, and they are also not exclusive to people that dislike the show because some of the zealots are equally as bad. Mr. Mallozzi has even authored a few rants himself.
The first time I read Melissa's post, it seemed rather laden with sarcasm. However, upon a second reading, I couldn't say for sure. I recall when Melissa used to post here under another username, and she never seemed to have an issue with being a member here. However, life is about changes, and I respect the fact that she says she is giving SGU another chance because of the 1-2 episodes that will feature SGA characters. Perhaps she's buttering up Mr. Mallozzi and Remi Aubachon since they're the ones doing the writing for the SGA movie and SGU episode featuring SGA characters. If so, then smart girl.
And I don't know how many people here actually have a "grudge" against SGU. I certainly don't, and many other people here have stated the fact they do not as well. We just don't like it, and this is a place where we can all say this without worrying about being censored or modded for it. You understand that because you used to post here as well. While you were posting here, weren't you at one point in time one of those people too, Melissa? From this statement above, I take it that you still are... Anyway, as much as I do like SGA, I don't plan on watching any episode (especially not live) of SGU next season.
And now, some quotes from the other day's mailbag:
I don't know, Marius seemed to be asking a question politely, and Mr. Mallozzi was a bit churlish towards him. Even one of Mr. Mallozzi's blog regulars mentioned that he should lay off the guy... I guess my thing is that if Mr. Mallozzi's going to ask someone to come up with a time when he's been at all churlish or snide to someone that politely asks a question, he then shouldn't provide that example within the same mailbag.
And then there was this one:
Ah, one could say the same thing about cranky producers... Just sayin'
Now, (regarding his response to Lewis above) Mr. Mallozzi's saying that they are going to break the team up. Wow... I don't know if this is going to happen in the movie or not, but it doesn't sound good. He says he hasn't done much tweaking to the script outside of a bit of "timeline" work, but who knows. It looks like he's saying that this will now be a part of the tweaking... (???)
This is why as much as I'd like an Atlantis movie, I'm kind of glad that it's not being made if these are the plans. No offense to Mr. Mallozzi, but he's never been the best writer for the show. This announcement doesn't change this opinion. When he did write a really great (Beckett and McKay) scene for Whispers, it went on the cutting room floor. That scene was better than the episode - no offense, but it's true (imo). I'll agree that the scene perhaps didn't fit that particular episode, but it fit somewhere.
I would love to be wrong about his script because I'm an Atlantis fan first and foremost. However, I don't think that I am. I'm just trying to figure out how breaking up the team will be a good thing. Again, great writing can accomplish any end, but I'm not sure about this one... Most of the team (and all of the main 4) belongs in Pegasus, in my opinion. Does anyone remember The Return when all of the SGA team had to go their separate ways and no one was happy? How could they all be happy going their separate ways this time??? Kanaan is more than bad enough... Damn him. There's still so much to do in Pegasus. However, if this movie is meant to be the end of Atlantis, then I guess... Still, I remember Brad Wright saying that the movie wasn't supposed to be the end of Atlantis. Perhaps that was just lip service at the time. (?) Seemingly, it's hard enough just trying to get the one movie made - That's why it reeeally needs to be good.
None of this means that Mr. Mallozzi can't do a good job, I mentioned this long ago on the first page of this thread when I watched a Broken Ties re-run, but he does have his work cut out for him... For the benefit of the movie, I do hope he goes back and does re-tweaking to more than just the timeline, then perhaps have a few friends read it over... I like Todd, but by the time we got to EATG, he was tacky. Mr. Mallozzi should try to channel some of the Todd that we first saw in Common Ground into the script because when he bragged about Shep's final scenes with Todd in the movie, it just sounded like it was going to be a recycled variation of something we've seen during seasons 4-5. I hope it's not.
Back to my main point - I don't want to watch an Atlantis movie only to see the SGA team completely destroyed. They did enough of that in season 5, to be honest. I never was much for SG-1 cameos on Atlantis outside of the premiere, even the couple that I liked. Anyway so, here's a helpful suggestion to Mr. Mallozzi: Don't break up the main team. Personally, I think that the team needs to be mildly reassembled by having Carson get his job back... That's just me.
Oh, and JT fans: This is about as good as it's going to get.
Mr. Mallozzi was amazingly nice enough to post this JT picture. It's especially nice because I never got the impression that he liked them. Considering that the picture is captioned "Rachel and Joe," I still very much so doubt that he does. Personally, I think that his hatred of Joe Flanigan won't allow it. He posted another JT pic in yesterday's blog post along with other Atlantis pictures. There was an emphasis on his dislike of Joe Flanigan in some of them, but what's new about that?
Anyhoo, there's more to say but that's about as much as I can to write for now.
Bring Atlantis Back!!!
