[tcm]bumpty bumpty bump![/tcm]

The back half of the season started off pretty strong, aside from the contrived feel of the whole "Carter journeys to Atlantis" plotline in the first ep, Lifeline.

I'm still not sure how I feel about Carter; her interactions with most characters are a bit weak, so far, and the pre-established relationship with Rodney has given us her best moments so far.

Yeah, well, this is the first time since the amnesia episode that she's actually appeared on screen, as far as I recall.

Personally, I feel it would benefit to have Keller onscreen more.

yeah, she has sortof been the absentee boss, hasn't she? And I just realised my previous post did not make sense, somehow jumbled two thoughts together into one sentence. The first 10 of the season were pretty meh, I thought, overall, but the first 3 since the break have been better. Was the jist of what I meant to say in the first place.

[edit] Oh, I forgot one thing... the "new asgard plasma beam weapons" came from where exactly? Last I heard the asgard were extinct and the ship containing all their knowledge was destroyed.

Oh. That's not how I remembered it. For some reason I thought they ended up abandoning ship after the final rewind-thingie.

All through that episode I was like "It's a trap!" in my best Admiral Akbar impression, but I guess not.
Pretty cool ending, but I would have thought more of the Wraith would be protecting that palace.

Todd pulled a sneaky one.

Just imagine him on ToddTime.com.

I was really surprised to see how big Tayla had gotten since the last episode.

Real heavy relationship ep but it was good.

Go Zelenka, show those air ducts who's boss.

Whereas Rodney, like his heroes Newton and Einstein, will probably never breed at all unless some female who really wants his insane genius babies just decides to stop waiting for him to make a move and just jumps him.

Watching McCay and the princess was equal parts amusing and annoying; the painting was hilarious. Overall quite enjoyable but nothing spectacular. 7/10.

You gotta love that painting at the end. I can just imagin Rodney having it hung over his bed.

Well, looks as if Atlantis is getting another base commander for the upcoming 5th Season. Our old friend The DoctorRichard Woolsey will take over for the almost non-existent Sam Carter as leader of the Atlantis expedition. Hell, if he's in just half a dozen episodes, he'll be more active in the season than Amanda Tapping was.

I'm beginning to draw comparisons between Atlantis' base commanders dying or leaving and the painful deaths of commanding offers on Battlestar Pegasus from BSG. They should refer to Atlantis as "The Beast"....

Yeah, but Woolsey's a douche.  A well-intentioned douche, but a douche nonetheless.

I just felt that the writers never fully transitioned from Elizabeth's character to Sam's character, which is a shame.  Admittedly, it's not like they ever really had to try, but still.  She called McKay "Rodney," for crying out loud!

yah, I assume they squeezed that mockery of a season out of her through some contract tangle in the hopes it would help carry any remaining SG1 fans over to watching Atlantis. But replaced with Woolsey? I usually enjoy the Woolsey episodes, but if he were in every episode his character would get very tiresome very quickly. Not that it matters, since the'yll probably keep having him deliver lines written for Elizabeth.

Due to late time slot 7 gave the last season of SG1(10) and Atlantis(3) midnight. I stopped watching and waited till they came out on DVD witch they did, before they finished on TV.

Hence why.
Channel 7 = crap
Internets = Best thing since TV.

ok, sitting and watching the dvr'd eps and heard a line I'd forgotten (and never really thought about the first time); doesn't have the title but the one where the wraith were on the way and Rodney went to fix the defense sattelite. Sheppard and his team return from scouting a possible alpha site, and says they were attacked by a T-Rex.

There's a fucking planet of dinosaurs in the Pegasus galaxy and they haven't shown it?

Cheap bastards!

Their big CGI creatures haven't been the best, remember that awful dragon? (assuming SG-1 and Atlantis have the same CGI guyz, it was in the Behind The Stargate show they did, they all work in a crappy building, ha)

I don't know why they don't just genetically modify some actual real monsters to use in filming. They'd look better than any CGI, and it's easy. I added a few more base pairs to my friend's dog's genome and now it's thirty feet fall with tentacles and feathers and tumors that have their own eyeballs.

Faze: Good point; since posting that I also realised that I can't think of a good premise for an episode about a dino planet. So it's probably for the best all-around.

Still, the dino-obsessed grade schooler in me feels gypped anyway.

Shepard's team (do they have an official designation like SG-1?) emerge from the Stargate on a planet called Dinotopia.  They are ambushed by a group of velociratpors.  The gunfire draws the attention of a group of local hunters, who help the team escape to their village.  Through talking to the natives, McKay deduces that there is a charged ZPM located in a nearby (relatively) mountain.  Insert fetch quest here.

Meh. Neither implausible nor epic enough. This calls for a 3-parter.

Part 1: Shepard's team are returning to atlantis under fire; energy surge causes gate malfunction; the wormhole is "crossed" with another and they emerge along with their duplicates r in a reality where Atlantis fell to the Wraith, contact with Earth was lost, and Shepard's team are the only survivors living in a primitive but cloaked shelter on dino planet. Alternate SGA team is even more bad-ass than the originals, but also very war-weary; together they find a way to recreate the accident and return them to their own reality, but in a last-second double-cross, the alternate team stuns them and goes in their place. End ep.1.

ep 2, we open with the duplicates trying to pretend to be the originals; this doesn't go very well, and they are eventually found out, but not before escaping through the gate back to this universes' dino planet - home field advantage. Meanwhile, the originals are left stranded on dino planet with no possibility of reproducing the glitch again (the doubles made sure of that somehow or other); without the cloaked shelter (power supply used to cause gate glitch), they struggle to stay alive.

Part 3: in alternate universe, they stop being idiots and use the star gate to visit a world with a known zpm, so they can try and reproduce the glitch one more time. In the "real" universe, the "B" squad searches dinoplanet for the doubles in jumpers, but only find dinosaurs; a jumper is down'd, resulting in minor characters being eaten. After "borrowing" the zpm from the Lord of the Flies planet, McKay reproduces the glitch and original SG-1 returns to their own reality; with their help, the doubles are cornered but ultimately escape, and with the originals back Woolsey decides there's no point in continuing to hunt them.

Did I miss any SG cliches? heheh

Ah well, I left the duplicates running around, time travel can be their callback; next season they contact atlantis wanting help with a plan to return them to their galaxy to prevent the Wraith from taking their Atlantis.

You forgot Ascension/ascended beings, as well.

And a scene where it might all be just a dream/they're back on Earth.  And tension resulting from the scene is lost when the twist is revealed in the episode preview/promo.

Yes, I *AM* still bitter about "The Real World," why do you ask?

Because it's fun and doesn't take itself *too* seriously (which I think is a problem with Atlantis.  Season 4 of SG1 had Window of Opportunity, Point of No Return, and Double Jeopardy.  Atlantis season 4 has ... some annoying spoiled brat? [ok, you can make the case that "This Mortal Coil" = "Double Jeopardy in Pegasus," but that's not the point.  The point is that SG1 is more fun than Atlantis.])

Also, Nixorbo demands that the next thread title be taken from this or I will destroy you!

nix: excellent points; I'd come back to answer my own question, though, as I just watched "Learning Curve" again. I really love that episode; it and Window of Opportunity are definately my favorites, and they're two very different episodes.
