It really is too bad that she will be joining the cast. She is exceptionally useless to the team and extremely annoying. Oh, and she's also untrustworthy.

She feels far too much like Farscape, and that show was horrible.

You can't have all the cast exactly the same, heroic, good, trustworthy, will always do the good thing for the team. What makes them different then?? You need characters to have differences and Vala has a lot of good ones which make her interesting to watch. She is new to the show and i am looking forward to seeing her do it. She has uses to the team though, she's shown some already (host knowledge, hand device healing, knowledge of the underworld.) She should be good and will add something new to the team.
However her charcter is nothing like it was on farscape, i saw 10 minutes of it the other day and she is totally different on there. Who cares that she was on there before she's a good actress and i'll welcome her. Ben browder was also on farscape but that doesnt mean the show is becoming anything like it. They are totally different!! I personally didn't like farscape much but it's not going to affect my opinion on CB or BB, they are both talanted actors.

Just piping in to give my 2 cents. I think it's fantastic that Claudia Black is joining the regular cast. I actually missed her in the episodes that came after Beach head. I rewatched the first part of the new season and the new cast dynamic is kind of growing on me. I still miss O'Neill but I'll survive. After so many seasons at least they're doing something to spice it up a bit and frankly, the new actors aredoing a great job in their new roles.

As for Vala... I agree, if every character got along with each other it would be kind of boring. There needs to be a bit of conflict and tension between the characters, otherwise it will be a boring show. Vala pushes a lot of buttons but I think it's a good thing. Plus, she's pretty harmless as far as characters go and we saw in Beach head that she's not evil, quite the opposite. When put into a situation like that, she's on the good guys side and doing her bit... she just has a big mouth and is a bit outrageous compared to like, well, Sam for example. But I like that. It's a different character and a different kind of woman we've seen on the show before and I like that.

Let's give her a fair chance and trust the writers and the actress to work out the kinks before giving her the final judgement.

With the show going for like a decade, things need to change or people will just stop watching because it gets too boring.

This is the best news I have heard in awhile. Claudia is a great actress and I am glad to have the chance to see her again on a weekly basis. If anyone thinks Claudia Black is a failed actress, that's sad. She is a wonderful and briliiant actress and I look forward to seeing her strut her stuff every single week. I can't see her enough. bow.gif I'm new here but thanks to Ms. Black, I'll be watching every week, instead of just when she's on. cloud9.gif

Farscape was definitely not a horrible show. If you didn't like it, maybe you just didn't get it. It was different, it was creative, it was definitely like nothing I've ever seen, a genre all it's own. Sci-Fi and then some. To my taste, it was incredibly exciting and the acting was top notch. Claudia can only make SG1 better. Tried watching an episode or 2 without her, just couldn't make it through. whistling.gif

I loved Claudia Black, actually. And I haven't seen an episode of Farscape in my life. And Browder seems interesting...

I watched a few episodes of Farscape but was never impressed nor a fan. However, to my surprise, I fell in love with Claudia on SG-1. The Vala character adds to the humorous side of the storylines and the daringdo of the Vala character is refreshing to watch. king.gif

That's a good news!!
I like Vala beacause she wake up Daniel...
She is double, a lier and selfish...and everythig can happend with her, you never know.
She brings "corpus" to a too nice and gentle team where everybody was perfect.
Don't misunderstand me, I loved the old Stargate Team, but I think they needed some refresh and Vala is a great refresh!

I think that is the best thing i ever heard. She is really good and her character the best i ever seen i think she will be an exelent part of SGC

The best would be if she would replace ben browder and join the SG1 that would be hammer i dont like ben very much i miss oneill a lot and if claudia join the sg1 it would be just better

I personaly liked Claudia, she was fun and she added comic releif. I'm sick of hearing people complain about her past on farscape, that was a whole different show and the characters are completely different. Vala made me laugh and she gave sg-1 a little difference, not all get along with eachother and do the job. I hope she does good in season 10, and maybe she will be a little more serious for all those who think she was a little to annoying.

Looks like you didn't read all the postings. Quite a number of people are happy that she is joining SG-1, including myself. king.gif

Lets face it this are changing and they are not going to stop in the SG-1 world Vala is here and I hope she is not another 1 season character. If they are going to do it they need to do it right. I just wish Jack was back. And Vala is so hot. I look forward to seeing what Claudia Black will bring to the show.

I don't mind Claudia but it is her character i can't stand. If she is in the main cast. That means we have to deal with her for 20 episodes. She's like Jar Jar Binks. Ok in small doses. I just hope they stop with the sexual innuendos.

This is why they should make him a prior... whistling.gif

bow.gif genius...

I always thought they should give him a few guest roles... he spend more than a year with sg1.. I'm suprised they don't hook up for poker nights or something.. I would also like to see more informal interaction between the team.. gives it more realism..

and I'm glad that vala's coming back.. really liked the whole daniel/vala interactions... and I love AT... she shouldn't be fired.. no sg1 without her...
