January 22, 2005: As you may have noticed since last week, the SciFi Channel has a new series of commercials for Stargate Atlantis, Stargate SG-1, and Battlestar Galactica. The series is set against a blue background, and there are several "versions." The main Atlantis commercial features Joe Flanigan, Torri Higginson, David Hewlett, and Rachel Luttrell, but one of the combined versions has only Flanigan and Higginson. Expect screen shots in the future. January 14, 2005: According to Gateworld.net, Rainbow Sun Francks, who plays Lt. Aiden Ford, will become a recurring character in Stargate Atlantis Season 2, rather than a series regular. He will no longer appear in the opening credits, and he will not be in every episode. For more information on this development, including story spoilers, please see the Gateworld.net article. January 14, 2005: For the Americans, remember that the newest Stargate Lowdown special will be shown on Monday, January 17, 2005 10:00pm EST, and the second half of Season 1 will begin airing Friday January 21, 2005 at its new timeslot of 9:00pm EST. Also, the second issue of the Stargate magazine, featuring an interview with Joe Flanigan, is out on magazine stands and in bookstores now. January 02, 2005: Happy new year! Atlantica has a new section: Lists for lists of things that need listing. For now, there's an Atlantis Deathlist, keeping track of who's died so far (up to 1x15 "Before I Sleep"), among other things. January 02, 2005: The TV Guide Channel is showing a 50-minute special on various science fiction television shows. One segment is about the Stargate franchise. The Stargate Atlantis portion features short interviews with Rainbow Sun Francks and Rachel Luttrell on the series, and a behind-the-scenes bit with Joe Flanigan and David Hewlett. The airings are as follows:
Sunday: January 2, 2005 - 10:00 pm EST

December 09, 2004: The Movie Central (in Western Canada) has updated its Stargate Atlantis schedule: the network will not be airing any new Atlantis episodes until January 3, 2005. The Movie Network (in Eastern Canada) has also updated its schedule for the rest of Stargate Atlantis. Although The Movie Network's website states that it will air "The Gift" after "The Siege Part 2," this is probably just a mistake since "The Siege Part 2" is the season finale.
