It didn't matter who was going to leave the show, because the franchise is so strong, and it's been around a long time and it's been consistently well written.
There’s nothing like waking up to see that my film #farawayplaces has been given 4 merit awards in 1 entire film festival. Thank you @Southern Shorts for giving my film so much love!
as in: “you SELL more than you BUY from” so good luck with that twitter.com/phanman69/stat… He is clearly the greatest intelligence agent —ever .
Anderson: I haven't taken a poll, but everybody seems to be here and saying the lines. Jack and Sam getting together, for instance, is a major fan wish, no? (You'll just have to watch to see what ends up on air.)] Over the years, it's been alluded to, so we did that just for us.
TV Guide: Are you a teeny bit hurt that the show continued to do well without you? Anderson: Yes, you're right, the fan base always wanted this to happen, [though here it's] in a coma or a fantasy, or whatever this is. TV Guide: Should Jack and Sam wind up together at the end of the series?
I think that started us off in the right direction. But I think at the root of it all is there's a lot of respect and a lot of fun.
My only demand as a producer was that everyone had to have a sense of humor to work around here, because it's not life and death. First and foremost, get the job done and be professional about it, but my god, please be able to giggle at yourself and at a situation.
But we're the first ones to make fun of ourselves, to skewer ourselves. TV Guide: Can we assume that in some of your episodes, Jack O'Neill will actually be interacting for real? I voiced my surprise when I ended up doing more "Atlantis"  episode coming that will be meaty and substantial.
TV Guide: That's clear, looking at the 200th episode! TV Guide: Did you feel as if you walked right back into something you knew very well? Anderson: More than when I flew in to do the chess or checkers scene last year. So anyway, it was a week's worth of hiking out on the ice floes, really being exposed with a broken ankle, and then I flew in to do this thing and I was just miserable.
I really would have to have a big conversation with my family, with my daughter and other people, because sitting here now, on a Wednesday, I won't see Wylie until Saturday, and it's that kind of thing that I miss. Most of the time I can let that stuff bounce off me, but my relationship with her is so, so important.
I'll work again, but what I do with Stargate remains to be seen.
In a personal announcement on her official website, Tapping explained that the baby is due in March, also adding that she would therefore be pulling out of her convention engagements until then to guard against further stress.** Speaking exclusively to Stargate SG-1 The Official Magazine, Tapping revealed how excited she was about the prospect of being a mother and her determination to slow down her hectic work pattern during the final months of her pregnancy. It's going to be very interesting because [Stargate SG-1] is such a huge time commitment and I couldn't do it with a newborn. Over the years that Stargate SG-1 has been on the air, Tapping's male co-stars - Richard Dean Anderson, Christopher Judge and most recently Michael Shanks, have all become parents. It was very strange this year as we don’t know whether or not we’re coming back for another season. I am also the host of a new show for Sci Fi called Proof Positive: Evidence of the Paranormal. The truth is, I have had two miscarriages in the past 14 months and simply can’t take any chances with this pregnancy.
