It occurred to me that we needed a thread about SG, as he is the creator of our beloved show AND the man behind the awesomeness that was "Subway" and "Medea".

Most importantly, without SG, we all would never have met! :o

I agree with Nikki, he wrote two of my favorite episodes of the season.
Thank you, Mr. Gallagher!

He only wrote Subway and Medea. Resurrection and Containment are adaptations from the British version.

Oh! And I discovered something else. SG's birthday is October 13th... Does anybody remember whose birthday is it too? The creator of one of the most fantastic series that we EH fans love too???

Yes... You got that right ;)

I know!!! :lol:

What a coincidence!!! And then I read that the year he was born is 1954 and I thought it was the same as CC, but CC was born just two years later.

Nah, iirc, CC wasn't a shipper... at least, not at the beginning for sures. I think he even said once that the show could live on without M+S... ha!

So, wow, another 1013? Niiiiice! Numbers are awesome like that, no?

Oh yes he was!!! I remember that almost every episode written by CC had at least one nice moment between M&S.
It's the same with SG. Subway and Medea had very good moments between H&R ;)

Do you have any idea how long it took me to get hooked on another tv show like I did with EH?

SIX YEARS

Last time ended on May 2002, when the XF was over.

Gee, thanks CBS!

I wouldn't mind if it takes one year.
As long as we have it back with Rufus and Marley.

Yes a big thank you to Mr. Gallagher. His two stories were among my top five episodes that aired, however, the big reason the show failed lies squarely with the writing. And I thing Rufus' choice of Americanizing Hood was a mistake. As much as I adore his ability and his vast talent but his choice to play an American left puzzled. This show could have gone so far, his charachter from all the press that I read previously was supposed to be quirky, and I saw none of that. The complete lack of respect the show received straight off was horrible to say the least, les moonves ought ot be banished to big brother or one his inane and banal reality shows. He is an abomination. Truly I think the show was doomed from the start, in part or in whole courtesy of moonves, perhaps it's a blessing in disguise that it got the axe. It;s time to get to work and get this campaign going again.

Did Rufus choose for Hood to be American? That... doesn't seem like the sorta choice an actor gets to make...

Though I'll have to disagree about Hood's quirkiness - he's just subtle about it instead of tv's usual fashion of smacking you over the head with it ever two minutes.

I think CBS never understood the character Sewell was trying to play. They wanted the same patented nery scientist who can't remember his own name. Sewell gave them a caring gentle soul and they could not understand it. As for Americanizing the character, I donot think that was a mistake. I did miss his wonderful accent but I think the writing and the lack of understanding of what the show as about were its doom. :|

My thought exactly.

As I am still very angry at CBS, I think the people in charge of programming know absolutely nothing about good tv and realistic characters. What I mean is that both Hood and Rachel play real characters, a man and a woman who have been through a lot in their lives that have made them what they are, who excel in their professional lives and have an interesting background. A man and a woman that fate brings together and start a very normal, natural, easy, fun, and interesting partnership without jumping into bed immediately and who base their relationship in trust, loyalty and admiration.

Do we have something like that in any other TV show? Not that I recall. There's mostly sex, reality tv, bad singers, messed-up characters, stupid women, silly men, rapes, corruption that make your brain go the size of a pea. At least, every single EH episode made me think and investigate about every single disease, procedure, metal, compound and fact that was mentioned.

Before EH, only the XF made me do that. And the things I learned.
