    Love this guy. He seems to be making himself much more available lately.

    Good interview. Interesting to see where he is in his career. Kind of sad about the Stargate stuff, though. I wish he and some of the old crew would get together on a project or two. Much luck to him as a writer/director!

    David Hewlett and David Blue both rock because you know they’re just as much fans of the stuff as we are. While I would hope for one last SG-1/Atlantis/SGU movie and maybe a combo movie to finish off the current iteration for the franchise and pave the way for either a reboot, continuation from the original movie, or a series set in a different time (but close to our own), it sadly probably won’t happen, but IMO for all the fan support and money that its helped to make MGM and SyFy over the years, these shows deserve that, even Universe which might not have been as popular but still had its following.

    I mean, come on SyFy we’re only asking for another three years of the show and then you can wash your hands of it! So what if it gets low ratings, you’re always going to have a show that gets the lowest ratings and if you cancel every show that gets low ratings then eventually you won’t have anything! You even cancel the shows that get HIGH ratings like EUREKA! Remember Star Trek: The Next Generation? That show wasn’t so great in its first two years. If it was on SyFy, it likely would have been canceled and there likely wouldn’t have been not one, not two, but THREE series and TEN films following it. Networks today are afraid to give shows a chance and in todays world there’s no room for failure at all. I realize that not everything can survive low ratings, but some shows can eventually and should and when it comes from a franchise like Stargate, should be given the benefit of the doubt.

    i’ll admit, hearing what david had to say about what he thinks might happen with the stargate franchise… that kind of bummed me out. see, i still have this hope that mgm will CARE about the fans of this loooong running franchise and make a combo movie for us! but more and more i’m reading actor comments to show that it prob isn’t going to happen.

    shame on mgm!!

    Problem is Fans no longer have a spine..they will not boycott or seriously throw a fit..they mat send a few boxes of tissues, but they do not hit the companies where it hurts..boycotting their channel, or not watching their films..or Talking up a competitors better line ups…these guys only hear $$$$$ and advertisers go where the people are..
