Marta 1.0 was much better. Her chemestry with Michael was just fantastic. She’s just really hot, that’s all.
Marta 2.0 seemed to get along with with G.O.B. better, but the chemestry between her and Michael just wasn’t there.
On an interesting note. Leonor Varela (Marta 1.0) was in the film The Tailor of Panama. Her character’s name? Marta.

Did anyone see Stargate Atlantis Season one?
The actress that played Marta 1 was in the ep Sanctuary.
She was quite good but at first all I could think was where do I know her from?
Haha, little light when on and I said oh right Marta 1.

Not that this matters to me at all...
but isn’t Marta 2.0 (Patricia Velazquez) some kind of Sports Illustrated superstar model? I’m just amused that this isn’t good enough for most AD-nerd guys
As for me, I like both Martas equally.
(I don’t care for GOB)

I’ll go with Marta 2.0 because I think she had a better sense for comedic acting. I couldn’t see Marta 1.0 doing the convoluted ’Sometimes’ speech or the ’With my father it is the vision.’ line as well as Marta 2.0.

So seriously, does anyone know why they switched Martas on us? Was it the show’s decision, or the actress’s?

i love the martas. they were both perfect in their own ways.
i love the look on marta 1.0’s face when michael says something like "you really haven’t got an answering machine"....
