Okay so I was watching one of the few remaining SG-1 episodes last friday and it had both of these stunning men on it. For the life of me, I couldn't decide who I like better. So, I decided we need a poll and a discussion on the two of them.

For me an episode without either one of them or both of them is lacking. Oh sure, the actor playing Colonel Mitchell is cute enough but there just isn't the same dynamics without RDA if you ask me.

So let's have a vote :)

Huh, I was gonna say Ben Browder too.

Acutally, I used to like RDA, but then I found out he's two weeks older than my dad, which kinda put me off.

I'm sorry, gotta go with Mac... er, Jack.

the O'Neillisms just kill me.

and I'm a sucker for grey hair.

Both. They have such different, quirky personalities and their conversations with each other can be hilarious. I don't know if the two actors have that certain chemistry, but the interaction between their characters definitely do.

I don't watch SG-1 but I've loved RDA since his mullet days of MacGyver...so he's my obvious choice. Who cares if he's old enough to be my dad?!

SG1 hasn't been good since RDA retired - even though I like Ben, the dynamic has been off and I haven't watched these last two seasons. Although I did accidentally catch the last part of last week - and was surprised to see RDA there (pleasantly surprised - his character hasn't missed a beat) but previews for this week reminded me why I quit watching!

High School reunion??? While the world's future is at stake? *grumble,mumble,rant* Is Eureka back yet . . .

Isn't saying you can't comment actually commenting? ;)

RDA all the way, baby....plus, he works with a charity to save baby seals, who could resist that?

I've been in love with RDA since the MacGyver days. Don't think anybody can replace him.

Amen, sistah. You took the words right out of my mouth.

I did, however, love last week's episode just for the RDA/MS interactions. Those scenes were old school Jack/Daniel. Good stuff.

Well if Amanda Tapping had been on the list then I'd have gone for her, I mean pressed her button, I mean voted for her :D .

Without the fancying bit, I think some of the best scenes in Stargate were between Jack and Daniel. Their on screen antics are simply the best. Although some of the credit has to go to the writers who come up with their interactions.

Oh dear, I should have included her in the poll? It didn't occur to me. Sorry perhaps next time we will have a poll on if we think Sam and Rodney (SG-Atlantis) will get together next season. ;)

*grumbles* I guess I'm glad they're adding another one, but SGA does't know what to do with the women it's already got.

Well I am not saying she will be on SGA next season, I just suspect she will.

From a purely character perspective, Richard Dean Anderson, from another perspective Ms. Tapping.

I don´t know if you´ve seen this but it may make you laugh, or your blood boil: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/6634255.stm?ls

Here´s a quote: "I used to watch Doctor Who and Star Trek, but they went PC - making women commanders, that kind of thing. I stopped watching."

Love Jack, always thought RDA was hot -- but gotta confess, Shanks has totally gotten better looking as he's aged. So, I had to pick both. :) (I'm fickle, what can I say? <G> )

And I loved last week's episode with the two of them. It was classic.

We're having a farewell Stargate party. :( <sigh> While SGA is pretty good (last week's episode with Rodney the SuperHero was both hysterical and a great character arc for Rodney) it's not the same as SG1.

Hey, Sheryl, we'll have to hope that the Pittsburgh hotel gets SciFi, and sneak off to watch it. (I've found in my travels that most hotels do NOT get SciFi Channel. <sigh> Which means I'll have to wait until after the conference to watch next week's episode.)

Well huh. I used to enjoy The Sky at Night, too.

Hmmmff

ah, Grasshopper... I have access to a VCR here at home!

so what we'll do is if the hotel doesn't get Sci-Fi I will BRING a copy of the episode (it's titled "Bad Guys", according to Gateworld!) on Saturday and we shall sneak into a conference room with a VCR and watch it!

after all, you ARE one of the big mucky-mucks who's going to be there and have free run... right?

;)

bet we suddenly have a cluster of crazed SG-1 fans around the screen...

:D

Then you'll be happy to know she's confirmed for 11 episodes of next season's Atlantis, and possibly more seasons to come. :)

How could anyone toss Jack aside for Rodney? Yuck.

(It was really funny in that recent episode, though, where Sam found out...


SPOILER ALERT!!!! Continue reading at your own risk.






....that she had been married to Rodney for a while in an alternative universe. LOL!)
