Aside from the cliffhanger, I didn't really care for the episode much anyway. Hamfisted attempt to build up anticipation of next season with the whole "The future sucked so were're changing it, oh shit, we changed it wrong, now how do we prevent it from sucking?" thing.

Episode would have been better if Lorne had said "It's a trap!" instead of "It's a booby trap."

For yet another time travel story, I didn't find the finale too bad.  I thought it was kept interesting even though the material was pretty rehashed and mundane.

As Faze mentioned, there was some hilarious CGI in this episode.  The booby trap scene at the end was really poor.  the building collapsed in such a neat predictable sequence, it should be a tutorial on a 3D site.  The other one I noticed was when Michael came out with the Wraith head.  It was pretty obvious that the cheering crowd was digitally made.  I guess they spent their CGI budget on the space battle scene?

Collapsed building definitely had the "ambient lighting of doom" applied liberally. To every surface. Multiple times.

As for the episode, it had a cool space battle, so I'm happy.  smile
I like how they're taking a less 2-dimensional approach to filming the space scenes. Asgard beam weapons look like arse compared to the missiles/railguns/drones though.

I don't really see it as a finale episode, despite it being the end of the season.. really episode 11 (where the replicator homeworld got destroyed) would have been the one to finish things off in style.

Something about Woolsey's uniform in the flashback didn't look quite right, I think the costume dept just lent him sam's suit instead of making a new one.  tongue
Also, Michael still looks like a bit of a gimp in that shiny snakeskin outfit.

Tempting as it is to repost that picture of The Todd with nothing on, I think I'll leave it.  wink

The collapsing building was the worst part of the episode. Todd is always a plus. And quite like time travel stories, so this one came out pretty well.

Just watched Ark of Truth (thank goodness for a slow day at work).  Yay closure!  Initial reaction is definitely positive, but more later after a second viewing.

I just saw Ark of Truth.  Wasn't the greatest stargate sg1 that I've ever seen, but it was pretty good.

I very much enjoyed the Arc of Truth movie. I've been a constant critic of the Ori storyline since it's beginning, and was definitely one of the best parts of it.

And besides, now that those stupid Ori and their flying jockstraps are done with, we can all drool in anticipation of the next movie, "Continuum".

I want more Go'uld and General O'Neill goodness!!

Or you could just watch The Ark of Truth with the Ori Arc Primer beforehand.

well, I ended up being impatient (when I planned to watch the series first I still had a month until it came out, but it never happened)
Overall I still enjoyed it, but it wasn't that great.

Well I just watched Ark of Truth for the first time and I enjoyed the hell out of it. The whole Ori arc in SG1 was pretty uninspiring on the whole, but this movie was wicked awesome nerd fun, and a return to form.

The amazing this is that that's techinically possible I've seen it done. Not with P90s miind you but I've seen it. Wouldn't work in a combat situation though, mostly a show trick.

Also, I so can't iron my clothes fast enough in anticipation for this.

Arc of Truth was excellent, so I'm actually expecting continuum to be excellent as well.

There's been no discussion yet, how do people feel about the premise for Stargate: Universe? The fact that it's apparently going to be set on a ship is surprising, but to me the basic premise seems kindof wonky... resuming an abandoned ancient "experiment" (their word, though I'm not entirely sure how it applies) to explore and build a gate network throughout the entire universe? And the whole "the 9th chevron goes to the ship" thing makes no sense at all to me...

7 chevrons: anywhere in the same galaxy.
8 chevrons: anywhere in any galaxy!
9 chevrons: a single abandoned spaceship?

The idea just hasn't been sitting well with me, but then, I'm a cynic (some would say "asshole" ).

I mean... sending out an automated ship to distribute gates through other galaxies is a brilliant idea. Sending a single manned vessel to follow it exploring, not so briliant. I mean, one ship? whole universe? Presumably it gets reports from the automated ship which help direct them towards points of interest, but why not send such info directly back to civilization, where fleets of ships are available for dispatching?


On a more random and positive note, having not watched Firefly until recently, I had never noticed that Jayne is the leader of SG9. Many a reference to that SG team has taken on new levels of hilarity for me, as in "You sent Jayne on a diplomatic mission? Bwaha!"

So, Continuum.  Kinda like an even more kickass version of Moebius, Pt 2.

Was anyone else hoping that Mitchell would pull a Fry right near the end?

Yeah I was. I thought that had Lars written all over it.

I thought it was good. The thing with the MiG-29s and the gliders was amazing. That and Mitchell nailing Ball in the head with the Thompson. My main complaint is that they royally screwed up the time travel thing again.
