What a terrible interview. It that was meant to promote SGU it failed miserably. Carlyle seems to lack any kind of charisma or stage presence and no one seemed to know anything about Stargate. Carlyle didnt even give the correct airing date. I agree with his sentiment about whether he was the right man for the job

I think that with all the publicity that the creators etc have put out and with Atlantis’s cancellation it will have problems with it’s first season. Even though I am still upset at the way Atlantis was ended and the way I felt about SGU I still wish them success, only because of the actors and crew (not the ptb!), it’s not their fault that certain individuals have no sense whatsoever! My other problem is that it is not my Stargate, it’s different, don’t get me wrong, I loved BSG but Stargate has been the same format for over 12… Read more »

I haven’t the time or patience to wait for the interview to load but on Friday night here in Aus…Melbourne to be precise, they are showing the movie “The Full Monty”….and I’m sorry but I just love it and love RC in it…I’m gonna want to sing that infamous song when I meet him one day. I always think of Robert when I hear “Hot Stuff”. It would be cool if they played that on the set of SGU…and even cooler if all the guys did the full monty!! Sorry…I know it has nothing to do with the interview but… Read more »

Robert Carlyle is one of Britains best actors for TV and film. The fact that he is on this show proves that. Also this will also increase the amount of stargate viewers as he has a huge following in Britain. So obviously the 2 comments above haven’t really watched much of his work. If or when you do you will change your mind. I garauntee.

This program may be watched by a lot of people, but it’s mainly stay-at-home mums and OAPs, not really the demographic they should be targeting.

It’d be better on Jonathan Ross or Top Gear.

Apparently he’s having a radio interview his the BBC soon, if he hasn’t already had it.

Wow, Robert Carlyle must have owed someone a huge favour to agree to go on This Morning. It used to be pretty bad with Richard and Judy, but with Eamon Holmes even my Nanna doesn’t watch it anymore. ;)

Jedi_Master_Bra’tac you obviously don’t understand promotion. If this show’s demographics are what you say they are, it is exactly the the one they should be targeting. The Sci-fi geeks of the world already know about Stargate, and SGU. It is the casual viewer that is needed to make the show more successful in the ratings. You don’t try and preach to the choir, you try to convert non-believers. Whether an old Stargate or Sci-Fi fan is going to watch the show or not, 90% of them know about it. That is why this was a good interview. They focused on… Read more »

cmuty, I’m tuning in because Robert Carlyle is in it, AND, because it’s “Stargate”. Hey, I thought he was great in the “24” tv movie.

I want to point out that the interview was ‘terrible’ because of Robert Carlyle, etc. Instead it was because of the hosts. I mean, I thought a lot of the American hosts for these morning tv shows were bad…I guess I was wrong.

This is just my humble opinion, but it seemed this way.

Typical British outlook on Sci-Fi – we never seem to take it seriously enough, just poke fun at it.

Keep in mind that This Morning is aimed at the stay at home mum, back from dropping off the kids at school, as such there is approach to this interview met their target audience.

Also that this audience knows Robert Carlyle for The Full Monty, trainspotting etc, and approaches him from that point of view.

In America, he may not necessarily be known very well for the full monty.

Wow, didn’t watch the interview and sounds as if I should be glad. What I don’t understand is why the actors on all the Stargate’s are never invited on American Talk shows. 10 years and they don’t even get a mention. More like 15 years really. I just don’t get it. I think if no one else, SyFy has an obligation to show interviews of these STARS. R.D.A. was no flash in the pan. He’s been on TV his whole life. Promote SGU here you dumb buggers.

It is understandable why this interview seems lacklustre, and with Carlyle missing the air date, it makes a bad taste, but having spent as much time as I have with British culture, it didn’t surprise me. In fact, spend some time reviewing interviews with British actors – conversation rarely goes deep into topics about movies and such, because their culture is much more interested in individual well-being: “How’s your family, the kids? How’s that enlarged prostate?”.

SyFy, though, definitely needs to get American interviews with the lead actors – trailers in theatres simply isn’t enough.

I have noticed several SG:U billboards around Hollywood the last week while driving around the city. They are fairly simple. I’m not sure who the audience target is, but assuming location is relevant probably people in their 20s-30s.

How was that a bad interview? He promoted the show he went on to promote. I enjoyed the clips they showed that I hadn’t seen before. Why pick RC apart just because he missed the air date by a single day. It’s not like he missed it by a week or more.

Just to remake the point, Good Morning is daytime TV, and we all know there is a global production standard of daytime TV. The presenter of the show is Eamonn Holmes. Who is also an anchor on Sky News in the UK, which is owned by Fox. Need I say anymore? Let’s not condemn Robert Carlyle before he has delivered his first line of the first episode. To give you a scope of this actors abilities, check out IMDB. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001015/ There is some classic film and TV in there… Trainspotting (also staring Ewan McGregor), 28 Weeks Later, The Full Monty,… Read more »
