Picardo in 14 episodes of Season Five

Check out the latest news from Gateworld - Picardo in 14 episodes of Season Five
Monday - February 18, 2008 | by Darren Sumner

Beware of minor SPOILERS for the Season Five premiere, "Search and Rescue," in the report below.

Actor Robert Picardo will appear in 14 of 20 episodes in the upcoming fifth season of Stargate Atlantis, according to executive producer Joseph Mallozzi (blog).

Picardo joins the show's regular cast as Richard Woolsey, the role he has played on both Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis in numerous guest appearances over the last four years (story). Woolsey first appeared in the SG-1 Season Seven episode "Heroes, Part 2."

Woolsey takes over as the commander of the Atlantis expedition, after the departure of Colonel Samantha Carter (Amanda Tapping) early in Season Five. With his brash personality, loyalties to the I.O.A., and questionable command decisions ("The Seer"), it will no doubt be a challenge for Colonel Sheppard and his team to adjust to their new leader.

It is not yet known which episode will be Picardo's first as a regular cast member, but it is probably not the season premiere -- "Search and Rescue," which guest stars Tapping and will lead up to her character's departure.

Season Five goes before cameras this week! Learn more in GateWorld's episode guide.

Re: Picardo in 14 episodes of Season Five

Oh, please. I hate this character. The last time he was there, the replicators came and took over Atlantis and almost killed him and General O'Neil. Let Daniel come over and let me take charge or Atlantis. He is the best I feel from the original series to do this. Weir was not bad, but it just seemed that the actress was just too stiff through the series and never really relaxed as an actress. If she could have done that, she would have been much better.

I love Picardo and while Woolsey may not be my favorite character, I think he does a great job with it. I never was a fan of Weir. You're right on with the stiffness comment.

And glad to see another Michael fan! Haha!
