PISSED OFF!

SyFy, MGM, and Brad Wright have freaken betrayed the SGA fandom. How dare they cancel our show, and replace it with a piece of crap like SGU. This is utterly disturbing. Absolutely troubling! Within these current weeks, I’ll make sure to bring hell to TPTB. I’ll be sending letters, emails, and all the freaken citrus fruits I can find. I WANT MY SHOW BACK.

Now after all this, I’m hearing that they’ve axed the Atlantis movie?!  See here for the depressing news. Also, the Atlantis props being sold off to the highest bidder, so that’s a basically a confirmation that there will be no movie. All the while this is coupled with the fact that they’ve arrogantly blocked all attempts at emailing them, by blacklisting all SGA-cancellation related matters, and have continually changed their email addresses. Just see here to read about SyFy executive Dave Howe bragging about blocking all our email attempts. What a damn liar!!

Currently the petition is over 37,000 signatures (at least that’s good).

Okay SGA fans, want to give them hell? See here for MGM/SyFy’s contact information.

We want SGA, not some bratty teens stuck in space!

I saw this the other day on Joe Mallozzi’s blog. This person’s comment has boosted my spirits. They’re words match my anger and fury against the cancellation so perfectly. AS I read this, I was encouraged to continue to fight, never to stop, never to slow down, but to continue as fast as I can, before it’s too late.

Mr Wright (are you? hehehe) 

I’m sure many Stargate fans are hoping to get some kind of reassurance that Universe will NOT be “90210 in Space”…can you tell us why you think that the audience demographic needs to be ‘lowered’, when the majority of sci-fi fans are in fact in the upper percentile of intelligence, including the younger ones who are already fans? By limiting the cast to under-25s (and believe me, reading those quicky synopses of their characters, they sound like a right bunch of snotnosed twats) do you really think that they will have the depth and experience, let alone the security clearances, to participate in the Stargate program?

If you can please give us a plausible reason why some stupid senator’s bimbo daughter would be a member of a top-secret military operation, I’m all ears.

thanks.

So, I’d like to encourage everyone to continue to comment on Joe’s blog. Gaining his attention is useful. We need to use all options available to us. And this is a fairly good one. As he does take questions too!

YOU Won’t Believe This! *GASP!*

Stargate Universe is copying so many characters from Atlantis, that they might as well rename it “Stargate Atlantis Redux”! SEE FOR YOUR SELF:

The casting audition sides for Stargate Universe characters are starting to emerge. These audition sides are not in context of the pilot of the new television series, which won’t start production until February 2009, but are apparently meant to determine character types and the actors’ ranges.

The three sides available thus far are for Tamara Johanson, Eli Hitchcock, and Jared Nash. Each actor will be reading from previous Stargate scripts, which have been somewhat modified for the auditions.

In the case of Tamara, the actor will be reading the part of Jennifer Keller from the Atlantis episodes “First Strike” and “Missing”. Like Keller, Tamara will be thrown into a medical leadership position before she is ready, but will also be required to show compassion and understanding. She will show the insecurity that Keller did in her conversation with Elizabeth Weir about taking over for the late Dr. Carson Beckett from “First Strike” and her distaste for local cuisine like Keller did in “Missing”. That time was also when Keller learned of Teyla’s romantic involvement with Kanaan.

Eli’s audition sides are Rodney McKay’s part from the SG-1 episode “Redemption” concerning Anubis’s attack on Earth through the Stargate. He converses with Carter about how to knock out the technology Anubis was using to bombard the Stargate. The actor will most likely face the same level of technobabble that David Hewlett faced in portraying a math and science genius, as well as demonstrate a rather acerbic, sarcastic attitude. The audition also includes McKay’s conversation with Carter in the infirmary about wanting to be a pianist to show a more affable side to the character.

The actor reading for Jared Nash’s role will audition from John Sheppard’s rescue-our-people balcony conversation with Elizabeth Weir from the Atlantis pilot “Rising”. Like Sheppard, Nash will be thrown into a military position of leadership. It isn’t clear, though, that Nash’s commander, Col. Everett Young, will face the same fate as Sheppard’s commanding officer, Col. Marshall Sumner. Additionally, Nash’s actor will have to read from Daniel’s part in the SG-1 series finale “Unending” where Daniel confronts Vala about her constant sexual solicitations and breaks down his wall of emotional self-protection.

All three characters are in the age range 20 to 25.

From here.
