Given the success of Re-imagined franchises like NBSG, the upcming New V series and the recent Trek film, how would you take a fresh new alternate aproach on Stargate?

To be honest....Universe looks like it may do that. Seems to be taking a lot of of a contemporary approach to storytelling and focus, being on 'survival' and double crossing ect. It may be doing just that... I'll wait and see. Although hopefully to a degree it does make it fresh take to avoid some of the bugs that were holding Atlantis down in parts.

Stargate would be much better if it was more dramatic like BSG. In Stargate, characters only died because the actor/actress left the show. BSG does a much better job with surprises.

You don't think that Janet Frasier's death on SG1 and Beckett's death on SGA were dramatic? Both were very beloved characters for each show and thoroughly missed by the fans. They realized their mistake with Beckett and tried to bring him back but it wasn't the same. In Weir's case on SGA, the stupid writers are the ones that messed up with her demise. They screwed her up, and ended up paying the price for her not wanting to return. I will agree that BSG is more dramatic, but not for the deaths of a character.

No...BSG is more dramatic in terms of character exits. It's just Stargate is more controvercial, because more often then not. It isn't something that should happen, or fits. While it pretty much always did on BSG.

I'll agree that it doesn't fit on SG, but does for BSG, but I totally disagree that it isn't dramatic. In both cases that I specified, Beckett and Frasier, they were dramatic and unexpected. They both had powerful effects. I will agree about Weir though. That was very controversial.
