Advertisements OK, I've given the new cast a little over, what, six or seven episodes and I can say I don't mind most of the cast changes. Except for not seeing Richard Dean Anderson anywhere in the show anymore. I didn't mind it that much when he was promoted to General, he still got some good lines. Don't get me wrong, I still love the show and will keep watching it until it no longer airs, but I truly miss the great way Anderson could deliver a line. Colonel Mitchell is a great replacement, but I still feel the show suffered a bit with Anderson gone.
