Kari Wuhrer on Stargate Atlantis? Ugh!

by Paul William Tenny

stargate-atlantis.jpgRelating to you about the news that Kari Wuhrer is making a guest appearance on Stargate Atlantis, I have to say I'm not very happy about it.

I love Stargate Atlantis, and I happen to think Kari Wuhrer is a beautiful woman, but she simply is not a good actress. I could hardly object to seeing her face on the TV under most circumstances, but this is one that I will genuinely protest. The cast at large of SGA isn't terribly deep, but there are a few nuggets if you dig around and the rest are competent enough to not distract from the story - but Kari will do that.

Not just because of her good looks, but because she is a B-actress through and through and today more than at any other time in history, television is about quality performances from in front of the camera and in the writing room. Feature actors and actresses are moving to television at an abnormal rate because those are where all the great stories are being told. In a way, I feel protective of television because it's on the rise, because that's where I want to be, and I don't want it to be spoiled.

Kari Wuhrer won't spoil Stargate, but she won't be doing it any favors either.
