    Take a look at the interview with Joe Flanigan (Lt Col John Sheppard). Is it me or does he seem a little disappointed about no dvd movie for Atlantis? This is the second interview I've read where he tries to hide his disappointment with humor but I say he's a bit miffed. Also he mentioned Caprica only sold 30,000 copies and that's why the suits at SyFyllus pulled out of any dvd collaboration. Did Caprica do that badly?

    That's a lame assed excuse. Most people didn't buy Caprica because they would rather wait until it airs on TV to watch the exact same thing. I personally will most likely buy Season 1 of caprica, but there's no way I'm paying $20 for a 2 part episode that I can see on TV.

    I found out the Ark of Truth & Continuum sold 500,000 each. Caprica did 300,000. I do think Flannigan is right, an Atlantis movie would have sold half a million.

    I know I definitely will buy the dvd if and when it comes out!


    I'm with you on that I think JF's disappointed about TPTB taking their time with the Atlantis movie, he really loves the show.
