TV Guide: Ask Mr. Mallozzi!

Got Burning Questions About Stargate Atlantis? By popular demand, I'm speaking to Joseph Mallozzi soon about the new season arriving in mid-July. Is there anything in particular you want to make sure I ask? Share your burning questions here, in comments! 

I actually registered to partake in this, which is a first given that I absolutely hate registering for things like this. (And the confirmation email. Urgh. Hate those). But here's another chance to (try) to get our voice heard in another more mainstream forum. So far, I have posted (once again proving that *gasp* I can be cordial with this man):

1.) What is the number one descision you have come to regret as showrunner of Atlantis?
2.) Do you wish you could take back (or have any regrets about) removing Elizabeth Weir/Torri Higginson from the main cast in season four?
3.) Is there any possibility that Carson will return as a regular in the sixth season if there is one? A possibility for Elizabeth, even?
It's not too late to bring back the family and great cast chemistry we had in the first three seasons and to mend old wounds.
Mr. Mallozzi, I also want you to know that some of the best fans are not those that praise your every more, but the ones that care so much as to point out when the show is headed in the wrong direction. Think about that :)

If you are like me and hate registering for such tripe, post here and I'll ask for you. Really - it's not much of a bother.

Maybe we should ask if he's ever seen Dr Who because he should and pick up some tips on how to write, produce, direct and hire quality actors

I've also added my Tuppence'oth

1) Why does Mr Mallozzi feel the need to insult the fans of the show who voice their concerns about the way the show is heading, it seems to me he only wants to hear good news, why?

2) I know he's trying to write for a key demographic, but he must realise by now that the majority of fans of Atlantis are women and this obbsession with adding 'Hot Babe' characters is driving his veiwers away, Is he trying to turn Atlantis into 'Mid Life Crises TV?

3) Will there be Gay characters in Atlantis? After the popularity of Captain Jack Harkness and Ianto Jones in Torchwood has Mr Mallozzi thought of this option to improve raitings as most of his other 'Shock tactics' have failed miserably.

4)Has Mr Mallozzi ever seen the Exit Wounds episode of Torchwood? Because that is a prime example of how to write death scenes properly, if you want to kill off a character and make (what's left) of your veiwers care you don't blow them up with exploding tumours.

Finally Mr Mallozzi you should watch series 1, 2, 3, 4 of Dr Who and series 2 of Torchwood to show you what your show could be if you listen to your fans and take time realise that CGI, Big Bangs and Big Boobs do not Sci Fi Make

I wanted to ask about the gender imbalance thing, but I don't think I can get my question formulated right... Maybe I should try anyway.

Then again... Who says he'll answer now,if he doesn't on his blog? *shrug*

I did it...

Questions from Heightmeyer's Lemming:
1. How is throwing in an all-female team going to solve your gender imbalance when all you have to do is spend more time writing your female characters so they come up to par with the writing for the male characters?
You had great female characters (Elizabeth Weir, Teyla Emmagan, Kate Heightmeyer, Laura Cadman, Katie Brown, Novak, Sora, ...) who you chose to kill or forget about instead of write for like you have done with most of your male characters (Sheppard, McKay, Kolya, Oberoth, Lorne, Zelenka, Grodin, Michael, ...).

2. Will Teyla have more to do this season, other than her token episode?

I hope at least one gets picked. How he answers/if he answers it is what I am interested in. I want to see if he outright tries to piss off the "non-fans".

I'm fascinated by how many are of an Anti-like stance. Looks like there's plenty of people on there htat don't know the truth about Torri yet... So there, "casual" viewers ;)

Dang, posting questions has closed and everything after 8am ET monday won't make the cut. I posted at 8:09am... Dang it!

They posted the request for questions on a Sunday and closed it after only 24 hours.

Gee, looks like their plan to sneak this under the anti radar was a total failure. *snerks*
