Wow, I was warned about how bad it would be when Ford left Stargate: the one with EVIL SPACE VAMPIRES but I didn't believe it. So...nobody thought that it might seem a little, er, racist, when you turned your only African-American main character into a drug addict and pusher? No? Righty-then.

But I still cannot stop watching. It's a sickness, I tell you, a sickness. That and I rather love the EVIL SPACE VAMPIRES.

BTW, does Teyla ever get an episode? I liked the one where her and Ronon were off doing their thing, while the others did something else with spaceships. Well, anyway the Ronan-Teyla show was much more interesting that the other one.

ETA: And for that open source breast fondling thing - I can't really believe people who still say 'oh! it was just some lovely hippie utopian thing that was terribly misunderstood! You just don't get alternate space, man!' Because that's reasoning that's too stupid to reply to.

But they replaced Ford with another minority male! So it doesn't count!

At least they'd never dare do such a thing to Teal'c, even if they will grossly underuse him.

OSBF is...seriously...I'm not sure brains were involved in that at all. Not the right ones, at least.

*nods*

You are only allowed to have one minority male at a time. Otherwise space and time implode.

This is me, repressing the desire to say "I told you so." Okay fine, failing to repress that desire. But yeah, it's pretty What. The. Fuck.

Re: Teyla, someone who still watches the show could probably answer more accurately than me (and I never watched it super-duper faithfully, so I could be forgetting a Teyla-centric ep). However, to my recollection, no, she never gets an episode. Granted, in this past season they may have been using her less because of Rachel Luttrell's real-life pregnancy, but I'm not sure what the excuse was for the first few seasons. And we never did get an excuse for that damn wig.

No! We got Teyla episodes. About her being pregnant, and how her baby is so TOTALLY MORE SIGNIFICANT.

In this situation you are entirely entitled to dance around saying 'I told you so.' I just couldn't believe that they went there and kept going there. What were they thinking?

Oh right, I guess I do know what they were thinking.

Actually--I'm not sure there are any Teyla episodes. We get some where Teyla is actually allowed more than one line, though. So, yay?

There's also an episode where three women are actually in the same scene together.

You lie! This never happened unless they were an audience for McKay or Sheppard or some other Godlike man!

It is possible I hallucinated it.
