in response to the podcast. the best use of a cast is bsg. everyone had a chance on screen even if it was only for 1 minute. or just standing in the background.

Craig MacD.

Teyla and Ronan had about 6 episodes each, which is a bit sad, especially considering that Teyla was on the show for a whole season before Ronon got there. I would have liked to have seen more of Teyla’s leadership skills shown or developed, and I would have like to have seen more of Ronon’s past on Sateda.


If you can get past Daniel’s absence and look at the series objectively, there’s actually quite a few extraordinarily strong scripts in this season, ranging from the thrills involved with “Descent,” to the exploration of the Ancients’ background in “Frozen,” to Chris Judge’s excellent script for “Changeling,” and of course, the no holds barred “Full Circle.” And of course, who can forget the silliness of “The Other Guys,” which IMHO, is a far better ‘humor’ episode than “Wormhole Extreme.” That said, the strongest story, direction and acting for me came in “Paradise Lost.” There was a cinematic style to everything… Read more »


Underused – all the characters on sga could have used more episodes, especially Elizabeth; it would have been nice to see her go off world more and it’s really sad that she and Sheppard never got to act on the feelings they obviously had for each other They could have used Lorne a little more, and Kate was on the show for 3 seasons in the background and she didn’t get a major contribution in a single episode Overused – Samantha carter, in Atlantis’s season 4 the producers had nothing left to say about her and just left her wondering… Read more »

SGA season 5 sucks

McKay was way overused…SGA became Stargate McKay :rolleyes: Ronon and Teyla were both seriously underused and pretty much ended up wallpaper by season 5 :(


Overused: Jennifer Keller… the writer’s Mary Sue. I wanted to find out more about John Sheppard, not to have to listen to Keller whine.


Underused: What about Kavanagh? He’s in the series for a grand total of six episodes, and judging from the last few scenes of “Midway”, it seemed like the writers were trying to make him more like “Redemption (Parts 1 & 2)”-Era Rodney, who was still a bit of a twit but more likeable than his first appearance. This is further reinforced by “Enemy at the Gate” when he barely argues with Rodney. I would’ve loved to seen more character development beyond “Vague bad guy/annoyance”.


I liked the way that Atlantis and SG-1 used recurring characters a lot. I enjoyed seeing Dr. Beckett and Zalinka re-appear regularly. I feel that they were used well. Dr. Grodin was a great example on how to use a recurring character. Here is someone who was in the background, had some great key moments in Season 1 and was killed off in a shocking, heroic way. I agree with paulm84 that BSG used recurring characters very well. You never knew when a recurring character would become a regular (Helo) or be killed off (Billy). An underused character that I… Read more »
