    Not to mention the fact that I'm not a neilson house, so nobody will even know I watched it anyways. The whole neilson system is flawed in my opinion, esp for anyone has a cable box. Why not pull REAL data from everyone, instead of trying to get a representative sample.

    From what I've heard, they redid parts of the episodes to reflect the fact that they weren't on a pay network anymore.-shrug-

    If I remember correctly didnt S1 E1 have some naked boobies? And maybe some cussing?

    I wish I hadnt sold that box set, I got desperate for money during my jobless time and sold a ton of my box sets and am still angry at myself for that.

    Untrue. Rent Disk #1 of Season #1 and watch the first episode. It has nudity. The decision was made in subsequent episodes not to push the boundries, as they were eyeing the syndication market. But, none of the DVDs are censored...

    I didnt think the nudity was needed or added anything to the show, so I am glad it got left out after.

    That part caught my attention too...

    So let's see... what else do I have to do on a Friday night at 8pm after a long week of work...

    HMMMMMM... DINNER! Spend sometime with my friends and family?

    If it wasn't for a DVR, I couldn't watch as much of Stargate as I do.

    The raitings people really need to get their heads out of the arses and realize, that with work days getting longer, commute times getting longer, and DVRs really really getting popular........ they seriously need to revisit the ways the calculate how many people are watching these shows.

    And mix in with that... Advertisers really need to realize that they NEED!!!!!! to find new way to advertise... Product placement (we all know what kind of PDA Jack was using on 24), Even goofy bugs on the bottom of the screen every few minutes...... Sports have figured out ways to push advertising from first pitch to last pitch....

    Hey how about that... a 30 minute show, that is actually 30 minutes of the story, instead of 22.....

    Yah!!!!!

    I 100% forgot about that scene...
    And we decided at work, during lunch we where going to start and watch the Stargate SG-1 Seasons....

    So we started with Season #1, Disk #1, Episode #1....

    AND BOOM!!!!! did it start off with a bang...
    Everyone got a chuckle out of it... no one got offended (luckily)... so for the next 5 weeks we continued with Season 1....


    But oh boy......

    I just started watching this weekend, and now it's cancelled. That definitely sets the record for the fastest cancellation that's broken my heart.

    Sci Fi JUST started airing the episodes again. My craptastic Comcast DVR recorded them for me (What's a first run episode?). They are probably about a week into it. Cold Lazarus is scheduled for tomorrow and The Nox for Thurs.

    Please don't take offense to this, but I have a hard time understanding how people cannot accept Ben Browder's new role as Cameron Mitchell on SG-1 and refuse to see him as anyone, but John Chriton on Farscape. All you have to do is use your imagine a little to place the actor in a new role. He is a good actor. He fits both roles well. Actors don't like to be typecast and yet we still typecast them all of the time. Are we saying that any given actor may only appear as one science fiction persona and then we always need new actors to fill new roles? This seems ludicrous to me.

    I'm really just sick of television in general. They cancel two out of three new shows per year and why is it out of the question that a good television show cannot run for twenty years or over unless it is a soap opera? I'm sick of the ratings game and can't wait for that business model to go away. Which is precisely why I might just turn off the SciFi channel for good this time.

    And then there are those who see Browder as doing nothing more than an RDA impression.

    So apparently Crichton and O'Neill are exactly the same character, since Browder's performance as Mitchell is indistinguishable from either.

    I guess I can be counted in the group that doesn't think that way. I never saw Farscape, and as good as it may be, I have never had the urge to see it. I think Ben was an excellent addition to the cast.

    Same way people can only see Richard Dean Anderson as MacGyver. Or Brent Spiner as Data. Or Scott Bakula as Sam Beckett

    Not disagreeing with you (in fact I'm with ya), just pointing out that 'people' get a character associated with an actor, and they stick with it.

    RDA has been doing a bad impression of RDA for the last 5-6 years. I really liked him in the early days but am more than happy that Browder has taken over a role. I just can't accept the total doofus O'Neill devolved into as he rose through the ranks.

    I watch it, but SG:Atlantis does nothing for me. Too many two dimensional characters who are still incredibly uninteresting and the Wraith have to be the least scary bad guys in the universe.
