Stargate SG-1 Crew Interviews: Joseph Mallozzi

Q: In a related question, it is well known that on previous TV shows, there have been writers who instituted events on their shows simply because it would upset the fans (the killing off of Iolaus in Hercules: the Legendary Journeys, for example.) What is your professional opinion about this? Like in advertising, is any reaction--good or bad--to be strived for?

Joseph Mallozzi A: I don’t really see the point in angering fans just for publicity’s sake. More often than not, a given show may spring a surprise on its loyal viewers (ie. Buffy gets killed!), but it usually ends happily enough for all. Of course, there are occasions when a show loses a much-loved character (that little monkey from Friends or the Ali McGraw character from Dynasty for example). It is unfortunate, but it does happen.
