Caprica? I hoped that they know it was a mistake with that Scotts bed scenes etc…

So they are going with writers that do drama and soaps then. That should make all the difference in a sci fi show. All we can expect is more of the same tripe that has been dished up previously. Hopefully this will be the last supper for sgu.

Hey jaffa orange, if you are so down on the show why don’t you just watch something else on Friday night. Yes SGU is not at it’s best yet but give it a chance. Watching SG since day one and we miss SG-1 and Atlantis.

I’m not all worried about a Caprica writer joining the SGU team. most writers are capable of writing different things as he was also a writer for 24 which is a show which is very different from Caprica.

I welcom Remi and Linda and I think that they will make a fine addition to the stargate writing team.

“As with the rest of the writing staff, the two will both write episodes and take up production duties.” What production duties? Shouldn’t the writers concentrate on, eh, WRITING? Perhaps the lack of focus is responsible for the mostly weak results so far.

I hope any new ideas they have are not drowned out by the good old boys club.

I liked the drama content on SGU, what I didn’t like to see is the 80% drama 20% stargate balance. Couldn’t be more sci-fi elements on it? definitely.

Please, even though you clearly have no idea how television is made, continue to lecture people on how to make it.

Television writers with experience and seniority also do production work. That’s how television is made.

So a Caprica writer and a crime drama writer. Hopefully they can write other things but I’m guessing they’re not going to be asked to. Does bring some possible new names for the show to mind.

first thing they should do is watch all of both sg1 and sga and learn what stargate actually is.

Actually the Pilot movie of Caprica was quite good. That’s what I can’t say about the rest of already aired episodes of Caprica the series. Still, Alessandra Torresani is just ridiculously hot on screen. She is very good-looking girl *INDEED*.

They hired someone with ovaries? *shockawe* Well, I’ll be. If it wasn’t so early March, I’d claim this was April Fools Day.

jaffa orange Please explain how 24 is a soap or drama. It pure action with the occasional Jack torture scene or should I say interrogation. Hopefully someone can get around to torturing Chloe or perhaps Rush. I think it good to have to new blood, yeah perhaps I would perfer to have written for other science fiction shows, the fact is there only a few on the air an most of those are well established series which are not going to let there writers go. But fact Crapica current team is all abandoning the ship, tells me the show will… Read more »

I heartly welcome the two new writers. May they do a better job than the resident bunch. And may the female keep the guys under control regarding all the sexuality in the show. Let them, as grif said, watch the SG1 and SGA episodes and be blessed with an abundancy of inspiration. Let them rejoice in writing episodes full of adventure and excitement and in so doing please the fans, both old and new.

When did I ever mention 24 ?
I have never even seen the show

OMG, I am shocked….the Boys Club at Bridge is actually going to let in a female! Incredible. Too bad it is too late for Sam, Weir & Teyla to benefit from a woman’s point of view and not some frat boy’s view.

Some fact clarification, since GW seems to only take Mallozzi’s word for it. Remi Aubuchon only wrote ONE episode on 24 (Day 2: 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.), on S2 he was the co-exec. producer (5 episodes, not even a third of the season). Furthermore he did not “write” Caprica, he created the Caprica plot, wrote the Pilot and then left for Persons Unknown (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remi_Aubuchon). Curiously, both writers/producers overlap in their work on their shows. Both were on: Summerland Wildfire Chicago Hope and Persons Unknown Both are currently writers/producers for Persons Unknown. If you look at their IMDB pages their track-record is… Read more »

“You said an I quote So they are going with writers that do drama and soaps then. .”
Clearly 24 is not a soap or a drama, it action. So we know at least one of the writers have done action an not soap or drama.

Caprica has a lot of soap drama but at least it’s not TRASH soap drama like SGU has been so far

I interpret this as SGU producers realizing how lacking their writing has been so far, and taking steps to improve.

SG insists on becoming a heavy soap opera – no problem. As long as it isn’t cheap trash soap like it was so far.

Let’s hope this rescue attempt works.
