actually Ronon didn't "replace" Ford. he is a totally different character with a totally different back ground. One character doesn't have anything to do with the other. It's to bad RSF didn't stay, I would have loved for them to keep Ford and have him and Ronon work together because with Ford and his super juice and Ronon and his awesome bad *** attitude they would have made a great team.

I'm shocked that I'm actually admitting this.... but I think Ronan is a better character. When I first learned that Ford was leaving and Ronan would be joining the team, I admit I was a naysayer. But Ronan has really grown on me and I love his interaction with the rest of the team.

Lt. Ford never grew as a character, whereas Ronon's character is significantly deeper and more developed.

Initially I was thinking that Ronon would be a tacked-on character resulting from the writers deciding "the team needs a Teal'c!", but fortunately he's not the wannabe-Teal'c was afraid of.

I do not, the idea of superman is not too much of a fun idea. The concept being Ronnan could take down an entire room of marines without anyone being hurt seriously. In reality they have machine guns and even hitting marines sets it off. Ford was an average marine which i liked. The non-crazy factor.
Your post went a that way :D -------->

I go with Ronon. He's a bad *** with so many possibilities, but still a vulnerable, damaged character. There are a thousand stories they could spin off Ronon, not so many with good-hearted, safe, obedient Marine Ford. Not to mention that Ronon is taller with meaner hair.
