SGA: Why I Am Not Worried

I guess it's time for me to put my 2 cents in... Okay, so it's not really time for me to do anything, but I'm going to put them in anyway.

Cut for S4 spoilers and the like. Don't bother reading if you're sick of hearing about it, or very upset by it.

Why am I not worried? Sure, I agree with the lot of you that the changes suck, and losing Martin Gero may be even worse for the show than losing Carson. You can have great episodes without Carson, as much as I love him, but great episodes are usually penned by Martin Gero. While Weir may not have the most exciting personality, she is important to the show's dynamic.

So in all likelihood, season four will leave a lot to be desired.

So, why am I not worried? I won't go into holier-than-thou mode and go on about how it's 'just' a tv show. No, the reason I'm not worried is precisely because it is NOT just a tv show. Fandom gives life to fiction and the same way ficcers are still giving us Sentinel stories, and Due South stories, and even Starsky and Hutch stories... Atlantis will live on, and it will be what we make it.

We don't have to sit quietly and take it. We can sit at our keyboards and fix it. We will have Mice's MSP, the Spubbaverse, roleplaying games in which Weir is still very much in charge but Christoph reigns supreme, and there's nothing TPTB can do or say about it.

Atlantis means more to me than just an hour of television a day. I've made friends on Atlantis that I may not have made otherwise. The show could go off the air today and I would still love every squee-filled minute. Why would I let the bad decisions of the few in charge sour that?

Besides, it can't suck worse than season 10 of SG-1. Heh.

PS. I'm still getting my gate address tattoo.

Well said. And Stargate tattoos for the win. :-)

I have the design all picked out. I just need an artist to make it look good. It's the address for Atlantis.

Wait, we're losing Gero?! What?

(clearly out of the SGA loop....)

Btw, love the Ford icon.

And yeah, apparently this is the latest. I don't know if it's a rumour or what, but I'm not really going to react until I know for sure. I will continue to watch the show. It won't be the same, but what if it's still good? Just different. *shrug*

Thanks :) It's by glowinglogos.

Thankfully, the Gero thing is a rumor and Brad Wright has already refuted it saying that Martin Gero is absolutely still going to be on the writing staff. So... that's one thing in our favor.

Still mildly irked though.

Amen, sistah. I don't know if I am going to hate what they are doing or not, until I see it. But they can't take MY show away from me. It's in my own head and they can't mess with that.

Although I still think they are on some serious drugs and need to be institutionalized. Not my call.

Season 10 was worth it just for Cam. mmmmm.

I'm here for ya, too. I know what it means when a show means a lot to you, more than just watching a show. I had great friends, or at least I thought I did, and I know how you feel. But...sometimes I feel like...

It's Scifi, no one ever really dies, do they?

Fuckin-a. *nods*
I'm all for the Spubbaverse. ^_^
