IMHO the show is a ghost of itself. Seasons 1 through 5 were much better when Showtime had them.

Think both Teryl Rothery and Don Davis knew something was up when their contracts weren't renewed/extended/negotiated for season 8. But that doesn't stop them from doing guest appearances in SG1 or being part of the upcoming SG1 movies. Remember, Teryl didn't get a formal contract until Season 3. One can only hope..after all this is science fiction...anything is possible.

I also noticed the show lost a bit since it moved to scifi. its mostly there. I think though the lost of daniel effected things greatly. And by the time he came back, the chemistry of the show changed.

And dang it... they really should add sarah. She's a hell lot better than those normal nerdy archaeologists you see on the show.

How about we add her to Adam Baldwin's team and forget this Atlantis fad? LOL

IMHO, don't blame the scifi channel, they only gave the go ahead for another season. Why Michael Shanks took a "sabbatical" after season 5 isn't talked about by the studio (MGM) or the cast members other than the official press release. Plenty of rumors out there, but nothing concrete. As far as anybody can tell, the scifi channel had no direct input or influence into shows direction or creativity. Can read these links to get an insight:
http://www.michael-shanks.com/interviews/starlog24.html
and scroll down to read the "Shanks' Return Embraced By All":
http://www.scifi.com/sfw/issue324/letters.html

Even the gaters had some controversy at that time, but in the end worked it out. Here's both sides of that story:

Personal issues aside, even before Michael Shanks left, some Daniel fans were dictating what the show *should* be about; what it was *supposed* to be about. Our commentary never had anything to do with the character himself, it had to do with the behavior of the fans desiring to take creative control away from the rightful owners, the powers that be.
It should be noted that the "Save Daniel Jackson" website has been since taken down and dissolved. And more importantly, the SG1 fandom is back discussing/critiquing episodes, the story arc, and the acting performances.

That's good that the Save Daniel Jackson website has finally been taken
down since he's been 'saved'. I'm really looking forward to watching more
SG1 when time permits

Still think it was better when it was with SHOWTIME though.

Oh crap. Don S. Davis is also going. It figures. Now the show will really be boring. Hammond is another reason for watching. Next they will probably frag Teal'C who by far is the BEST character. Teal'C is an innocent learning about humanking. Christopher Judge should have won an award for his perfromances which never bore one.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
There were one or two episodes with his wife. One time a blue crystal took the form of Jack and had his memories, and it went to his wife.

I also seem to recall one episode where an alien took the image of his son. Though that may be the same episode.

Thomas.....It was called Cold Lazarus in season one where the crystal entity took the shape of Jack and then Charlie...and there are still deep feelings for his ex wife.....

I read that Davis and Rothery did not renew their contracts believing that the show would end with season 7. I read that Rothery had already made other commitments and could not get out of them. I don't know what Davis did......he has his art to fall back on so maybe he is free to continue....here's to hoping...I really like him

I'm hoping that Davis will be free to continue too. I like his character as well.
