Why not? Atlantis is pretty good, at least in my opinion.

I've gotta stick up my hand in favor of Atlantis as well.

Season 3 cliffhanger was good.

Hmmm. I'd have gone with 'Alasdair Catbert-Stewart' myself, but then again I may go away and make a new Catbert avatar just for the heck of it.

I did consider that, but you were the Brigadier last time.

Because aside from the movie, Stargate has just never remotely interested me. Also, I would want to watch the original show before I watched Atlantis, and that's hundreds of hours I could waste in other ways.

I've only seen like the first six episodes of SG-1.

Man, what a daunting undertaking. That's the one good thing about all these recent sci-fi shows that have tanked after a few season(s) -- easier to catch up on w/ DVD.

Ah, and yes. Still.

As one of the oldest Stargate fivists, I take EXTREME exception to the notion that SG-1 is a waste. I would pay attention to the wasp nests that you're whacking if I were you.

When you've got a lot of important things on your plate, even spending a few hours watching your favorite show ever can be considered "wasting time".

A little too quick on the trigger, Nate.

True.

SG-1 is however, worth time. The precise amount is yet to be calculated. The Omni-Cognate uh...(someone please help out with this Guide reference!) is having some problems with the required arithmetic.

I'll admit, though, that I still need to watch seasons 2-6, and half of season 7. Possibly a few other bits I missed, too.

Hyperlobic OmniCognate Neutron-Wrangler of Sisoronicus Twelve. Probably butchered the spelling, but that's what it is, and I didn't look it up, I swear. Hey, I do have an h2g2 username, right?

So you use the term "wasting time" as a relative measure. I use it as an absolute measure.

Yes! The precise amount of time that SG1 is valued at is currently still being worked out by the great Hyperbolic Omni-Cognate Neutron-Wrangler of Ciceronicus Twelve!

Please don't make me beg you to stop dissing Stargate.

Ooh! I should probably change mine soon or something.

...Wait. I like this one. Never mind.

Everyone already knows where I stand on the Stargate issue. I think.

To return to the thread topic, I'm wondering if there's a secondary meaning behind "spin doctor." Of course Link is doing a Spin Attack, but I was curious if there's a hidden joke in there.

Okay, changed.

I know people who never watched or didn't like SG-1 but watched Atlantis and liked it. I personally couldn't get into SG-1 with Ben Browder AT ALL. I didn't even watch the last half of the season. Atlantis is my new favorite show.

You could make it 'lost civilisation'. It doesn't quite fit with Andromeda's opening credits, but it kinda fits the theme of both shows.

And proclaiming you a god in my siggy? Had nothing to do with Member Titles or anything. It's just a fact.

My only problem with Ben Browder is that he spent the first episode looking like he was going to either faint or start a hysterical temper tantrum.

Oh, and although I like Sheppard's "O'Neill clone" impersonation, Mitchell doesn't do nearly as good of a job. I wish he'd try harder to put his own spin on the character. Who says that the head of an SG team has to be an O'Neill clone?

I stopped watching SG-1 while O'Neill was still there. It just became...meh.

Atlantis, OTOH, I wants it nowz.

Sheppard isn't really an O'Neill clone. I'd go into reasons, but it's 3 AM.

The Spin Doctors are a group. I can't remember any of their songs off the top of my head, though I'm sure they had a couple big ones.
