Topic: Any thoughts on the latest eps?

I hate it when the sci-fi channel takes these huge long breaks in the middle of a season!  At least we won't really have to wait until March for the new episodes - I think Sky start showing the new episodes in... is it October?  Which means we could have the new episodes by December.  Still sucks to wait, but it's better than waiting a whole six months!

So, does anyone have any opinions on the first parts of both two parters?

Hands up if you think that once again the Atlantis episode was far better than the SG-1 episode.

*raises hand*

I want to be supportive of SG-1 I really do, and I'll always love it, but it really isn't as good as it used to be (which I know I've said before, but watch out because I'll probably say it again).  *sigh*  Maybe Atlantis should loan out Martin Gero every now and then.  The quality might perk up slightly.

Oh hey, and geek points to whoever recognised Captain Helia.  smile

hey, long time website user, 1st time poster...*ahem*...

I agree, damn hiatuses. But in contrast to LOST when you never know when they feel like taking a week or more off, I prefer it this way...but still hate the wait.

I think SG1 was pretty good, by comparison to the rest of its season.
Atlantis seamed to drag on a bit ([SPOILER] after they get kicked out of Atlantis[/SPOILER]), but that’s what I think anyway. Plus i think both cliff hangers were pretty good.

I also agree with Atlantis having better writing at the moment, especially Rodney’s first name lmao.

And hey, how many geek points do I get for Helia?
She should just be able to destroy the repli-anceints world with her know-how smile

Re: Any thoughts on the latest eps?

Hm, I thought SG-1 was better then Atlantis this time smile

Although it was too much of a "Thor's Hammer" like episode for me (SG-1), I didn't like the way the almighty ancients were so easily overtaken by the not-so-cool-anymore replicators. (Atlantis). But then again O'Nill was in it, so let's call it even smile

Also is it just me, or Ba'al is getting cooler by the episode?

Ah yeah, no geek points for me sad

Re: Any thoughts on the latest eps?

Well I thought SG1 was pretty dam good even though Atlantis was a little better they were both great episodes and we all should be gettting behind SG1 so it doesnt get cancelled!!!!!!

Don't  hate the player hate the game.  Denaus

It's cancelled, and there's nothing we or MGM can do to bring it back.

Ten seasons is enough, I'm sorry to say the show just isn't the same without Richard Dean Anderson, even with the edition of Ben Browder, the writing has just gone down the hill.

Re: Any thoughts on the latest eps?

The only downside I can see to cancelling SG-1 is that we don't get to see Sam Carter (Amanda Tapping) anymore.!  tongue

She's my number one babe.

Re: Any thoughts on the latest eps?

Well, I just saw episode s3e11 of Atlantis, and this is weird because according to next-episode, this episode will not air in another 3 months.... Is it possible for someone to explain this to me? ( I downloaded the ep from the net)

Re: Any thoughts on the latest eps?

I was just about to post about this - Canadian TV have started showing the rest of season 3 of Atlantis.  I am very excited.  big_smile

Re: Any thoughts on the latest eps?

Yep, was an awesome episode. smile

Re: Any thoughts on the latest eps?

Did they cut their computer generating budget on this one? You dont see them go in to the underwater base, and you dont see them attempt to distroy the stardrive. They're skimping out and it isn't the first time.

Still a very good episode tho.

Re: Any thoughts on the latest eps?

Just watched s3e11
Very predictable, they end up with fully powered up zpm's. they destroy the stardrive, so that they can move about the galaxy. All the all powerful ancients are dead, yet the 2 earthlings survive. They introduce living ancients, which was a great way to introduce many new story lines, then kill them off.
Was hoping for better storylines than what has happened to SG1.

Re: Any thoughts on the latest eps?

I agree on the low CGI on this show and the missed chance to get new acient story lines.
At least the have a fully charged Atlantis which can't fly away but defend itself from the upcoming Wraiths attacts wink

I can't wait to see them kick some Wraith ass, but I bet Rodney will manage to drain all the power before that happens, silly man.

Re: Any thoughts on the latest eps?

well, this seems as good a place as any... i think my, ahem, 'distaste' for sg-1 is pretty well documented, the stoopid thing being, in cutting myself of from watching this one i also threw Atlantis in that mix... so when a [non-net-functioning] friend pointed out to me that season 4 of Atlantis was coming to an end and broadcast tv here had still failed to start season 3 and maybe i should download it, i thought i would give it a spin... so here i am 14 days in and just finished watching 4x01, and i think it's pretty safe to say i'm hooked, well and truly... and for all the obvious reasons.. great characterisations, awesome plots, NO gaping plot holes... shall i go on?... nope, cos i'm off to watch 4x02...

i'm going to eat your brains and gain your memories...

Re: Any thoughts on the latest eps?

wait till you get to the second half of season 4! big_smile
