I just hope it’s better than the version they have on the BBC. Bleh.

With those three very talented people at the helm I would definitely give it a try. :)

how will the sanctuary powers that be have time to do this, with sanctuary pre production/filming/post production taking so much time?

Not sure what I think about this, as I really like this group of people, but in the past American versions of Robin Hood have kinda missed the point of the legend :s

I’m glad that SyFy now has two space based shows in development – Sherwood and Orion. We need more space adventure and people actually having FUN exploring the universe.

Canadians are Americans too, sort of. ;-D

I like everyone involved in this…but not keen on the idea. I think I’m gonna be giving this a miss.

I’m really super excited about this, not the least of which reasons is Amanda Tapping’s involvement.

AT took some of the best people from SG1 and SGA with her when she left…smart woman! Nice to see a woman developing and producing shows… yaaay for her! :D

@ Pioneering … actually as a Canadian I don’t see myself as American in anyway.

In regards to Sherwood, it sounds like an interesting premise and am willing to give it a try. Love Amanda and always thought Martin Wood was a great director. I wish all three of them luck with this new endeavor.

@ Pioneering

I am Canadian myself (which is why I love seeing shows like Stargate and Sanctuary succeed) and I don’t think we’re American other than the fact we live in North America :P

Well, this should be interesting- can’t wait to see how the projects turn out!

@Pioneering- In much the same way that Irish people hate being incorrectly referred to as English, or New Zealanders hate being incorrectly referred to as Australians, we Canadians generally don’t like being referred to as Americans. North Americans, we’re cool with. But we’re not American. Even when joking, that tends to rub us the wrong way. Just a heads up.

Robin Hood has been done to death. Not too keen on the premise. Maybe a totally new show with new ideas would be better?

Love the guys and I’m glad they have another show to go into production and I hope it is a success. I’ll watch if able but it sounds very much like Firefly by the description. A privilaged young man (Simon Tam) teams up with a misfit spaceship crew (Serenity crew) to right the wrongs of his Family (River Tam) I’m sure it will work out and only be similar on the surface.

At first when I saw this article, I thought, not another one! But I see it’s set in 23rd century so OK, let’s do this! I hope they do a good job and remember to include some humor!

It’s great to see this team of Stargate alums growing professionally. I wish them success!

Haha. I love how there’s a side thread going on abboot the Canadian thing. Hear me. I’m American. Live in Detroit. Windsor is a stone’s throw away. Canadians rock. We have a lot in common culturally. I like to think of Canadians as our American cousins. A little neater, and more polite than us Americans. It’s kinda like the Sodan and Free Jaffa. Both have much in common but you wouldn’t call a Sodan Warrior a Jaffa now would you?

@ sgfan

Oh don’t get me wrong, we do have alot in common, but what I mean is, while in the UK, the English and Welsh for example or English and Irish have things in common, they are also distinct in their own way. I’m not offended by the term American, I just think we both have similarities and differences :)
