Hilarious. This is from the DVD commentaries I assume? I wonder if that inclusive box set is still available, or if it was some severely limited edition thing.... :googles: it is still availble.

It started off on the wrong foot for me with the flimsy excuse for Sam to go on the mission. Weir was first and foremost a diplomat and she almost never went out on that kind of mission, so why on earth would Sam go?


And nix, no contemporary american series is complete without at least a love quadrangle, right?


Rodney did have some good lines at the end tho...

Continuing from the point Nix was making at the bottom of the last thread, I feel that Atlantis needs to have an episode that's pure, total, unadulterated fanservice. Of course, none of it would be **real**, possibly an alien intelligence would be probing people's minds to find out what their greatest fantasies are. However, it would be awesome.

Plus, I don't think that it takes itself too seriously anyway. There are episodes like "Sateda", where Ronon goes on the most insane anti-bad-guy crusade since the SG team wore those bracelet thingies, and we've been seeing an awful lot of O'Neill-esque sarcasm from Shepper and McKay recently (though neither of them will ever be in the same league as O'Neill). It's gettign there. SG1 had ten years to poke fun at itself in, and Atlantis has only had 4. Give them time, and I'm sure that they'll have their very own "Window of Opportunity" moment.

My only complaint with Atlantis at the moment is that we don't see enough Teal'c moments. Y'know, those bits of SG1 where Teal'c would just go nuts and beat the shit out of somebody, or pop out from behind a van and clothesline a fleeing bad guy, or just blow something up. Those moments. Seems to me that Ronon and Shepperd are both underutilised in that regard.

That's your only complaint? My only complaint is that every alien in this completely different Galaxy somehow speaks perfect Terrestrial English, and often with an American accent.

Heh, i saw that the old stargate thread was closed and was thinking if i made the new thread, id use a line from the unofficial opening song. Mine would've been "Watch out for that Ga-ga-ga-ga-ga-gould". Then i saw the new thread and was happy.

But then again, I don't watch enough stargate.

Because the writers are still writing for Elizabeth, not Sam.

Window of Opportunity *WAS* in SG1's 4th year.

I agree, up until the point where I remember that spending the first half of every episode watching Daniel try to learn to communicate would be tedious.

ca: the Wizard-powered Universal Translators from Trek actually annoyed me more. They were so horribly inconsistant about it; they worked perfectly from the very first word spoken in any language even if it had never been heard before, except where the plot required it not to work. The constant references to he UTs just drew more attention to the problem for me.


Nix: Generally I agree that they've done their worst job yet with adapting liz scripts to sam (worse than daniel->jonas and jack->cam combined), but in this case that's not enough to explain it for me. Even if it was Elizabeth I would've asked why the hell she was going. She always left that to shepard and tayla before.

The whole episode had the feeling to me of being written backwards, like they had an agenda up-front and all the details were just to acheive that desired result (putting Sam, McKay, and the hot young fem that fans aren't talking about enough in an episode all by themselves)

Chay: that would've been my second choice, but this line just cracks me up too much.  smile

In-universe answer: Tayla + preggers = not going offworld.

So, the Wraith latched onto Teal'c and started feeding at the SGC. I guess that's another 20 years or so added to his already aged life...  tongue

That said, it was a fantastic episode.

Woo, no more easy link to Earth! The show was much better when they didn't have an easy way out.

Great episode, even if the complete lack of security at midway/ sg command wasn't very convincing.. there was enough coolness to override the geeky plot holes.

I liked how a random black guy also survived with the known characters in the jumper. Always good to break with tradition.

Wonder where the crapper is in the jumper? 2 weeks is a long time.

Zmithy: The easy interaction was required to allow the free blending of characters and tech (but not, in general, plot events) between SG1 and SGA during the very critical transition of SGA from secondary SG series to primary.

re: crappers, heh, It's stargate. There's no room in the stargate for nit-picking the details. I mean, it's two galaxies of apparent convergent linguistic evolution; if you can ignore that, you ought to be able to ignore anything.

Hey, it's no Battlestar Galactica cliffhanger, but it was pretty bad.

Speaking of BSG, they totally ripped off Pegasus' destruction in Exodus in tonight's episode when the Phoenix was defeated. They better credit that in the DVD commentary.

SG Fan: "BUT PHOENIX TOOK OUT THREE WRAITH SHIPS, WHILE PEGASUS ONLY TOOK OUT TWO BASESTARS!!!"

Me: *smacks SG Fan*

See, there some season ending cliffhangers are fine, due to badassness or sheer unexpectedness (see: "Mr. Worf, fire." or *ANY* of BSG's).  But that cliffhanger holds no suspense for me, other than "Gee, I wonder how the writers are going to have everyone survive this time?"  Laaaaaaaaaame.

Oh thank Oma, I wasn't the only one who thought it.

The Peg's was better anyway - any ship could take out others with a shockwave, Pegasus took two out with a freaking bank shot.
