Amanda Tapping is gorgeous.

Re: amanda tapping in atlantis season 4

I heard about this a while ago - I'm really not sure I like the idea to be honest.  Her role on SG-1 as a soldier and a scientist is taken up by both Sheppard and McKay on Atlantis.  It just sounds like there could be a lot of redundancy.  She and Sheppard are even the same rank (unless they plan to promote her *again*)

It might be okay if they only have her on for a few episodes for a short arc or somthing, but as much as I love her I really hope they don't make her part of the main cast.

Re: amanda tapping in atlantis season 4

she could replace Dr. Zilekna (spelling...) but maybe as Dr. Beckett is leaving she becomes the person who is the extra on some missions...

yikes

Re: amanda tapping in atlantis season 4

Nooooo!  They can't replace Radek!!!  And they're bringing in Jewel Staite to take over for Dr. Beckett, so it's not that either...

Re: amanda tapping in atlantis season 4

Re: amanda tapping in atlantis season 4

Boo.. Becket owns!

Re: amanda tapping in atlantis season 4

I do not really like the idea of making Sam a part of Atlantis. There are to many scientists on that show already, but it would be nice if she could do a couple of showes. I have to say that I would like if better if Daniel came to Atlantis, as it is now Atlantis does not have any caracter that knows anything about mythology...

Re: amanda tapping in atlantis season 4

the whole main cast ownz

Re: amanda tapping in atlantis season 4

except Teyla (i dont know why but i just cant stand her) IMO she should go not Becket.

Re: amanda tapping in atlantis season 4

It's because they hardly ever give Teyla anything to do!  I love John and Rodney (love, love, love) but man, they need to remember that there are other characters there who need plotlines too.

Re: amanda tapping in atlantis season 4

No no, it's something about her personality that I find "repulsive".
I mean she's supposed to be the "hot karate chick" who kicks the asses of all those evil scumbags throughout the pegasus galaxy is she not ? Im tired of those wink
She doesn't even appeal to me physically (though I don't imply that she's ugly), just an ordinary mid-high range chick with a nice tan smile. This, plus the "we must save the people on the surface" crap makes me go nuts wink.
Try to compare her level of profoundness with the one of Jewel Staite's character in Firefly and you'll know what I mean. She had a flare even while holding a wrench smile This sort of flare that Teyla will not ever have because of the actress that plays the role.

Ergo she should leave, not Becket (I just love his accent wink ) !

Re: amanda tapping in atlantis season 4

<coughs and tries to be serious>

I'd have to hear yours as Becket has two balls too many for me XD

<seeing that it didn't work, tries to say something smart>

btw isnt the show going to get too female dominated (not that I mind wink ) ?

Maybe we'll finally get to see sheppard loosing his virginity to something else than a wriath stun gun ? smile

Re: amanda tapping in atlantis season 4

bring on Daniel then!

Or maybe some of the original cast will move to the new (as yet untitled) third Stargate spin-off? Or maybe Sam will stay at Atlantis for a year and go there... Who knows... smile

Well personally I'd love to see Sheppard lose his virginity with McKay, but maybe that's just me.  (even though I know for a fact it isn't just me)  wink

isnt the show going to get too female dominated

Could make for a nice change actually.  I'd be happier with more women *behind* the camera though - they really need a woman on the writing staff!

Re: amanda tapping in atlantis season 4

@Halo2
The thought about Carter staying on the show for a year and... crossed my mind. And I think its a good idea.
btw the new show will need some "extra power" to start things running so IMO characters, both, from atlantis and sg1 will make appearences there for the first few eps.

@Karenbear

thats an idea for a good xxx spin-off smile I wouldn't mind to see the firefly girl and *thinks really hard* those lovely ladies from the "feromone village" (you remeber the ep right ?) to have a little close encounter wink

And the show would benefit as far as _______ goes. (?)

I, on the other hand, would like to see some real men on the writing staff smile The show is sometimes too .... (can't find the word) politicaly correct ?

Wow, I didn't know that.  And as much as I don't want to lose Dr. Beckett, Jewel Staite replacing him is awesome news big_smile

I just hope she has more screentime than Lexa Doig did as the SG1 doctor... roll
