Stargate Atlantis SO5E09 – May The Best Man Win September 20, 2008

Another great Stargate Atlantis episode – the runner concept has always been a great one in Atlantis and now we see another Runner – hazzah!

The fact that he has a ‘heart’ and is trying to save a little girl is also great but the uber plot – the content of McKay and Ronen for Dr. Keller that’s off the charts.

We know from the version of the future that Shepard saw that Keller ends up with McKay but still we also know that Ronen has a thing for Keller – not usually the kind of social interplay that we’re loooking for in good SciFi but it sure is entertaining isn’t it?

Stargate Atlantis 5×08 The Queen September 13, 2008

Long Live T’eyla Queen of the Wraith!!!

What a great episode from start to finish. First the proposal to wean the Wraith off human feeding is an awesome idea..though similiar to how in SG-1 they weaned the Jaffah off the symbiots..it just makes sense.

The ‘double cross’ making T’eyla Queen of the whole Wraith Alliance though was just a really neat an unexpected twist that just made us go – WOW.

But a question – how did Todd get the respect of his own hive without a Queen ? Sure we know he said he hid the issue from others hives..but on his own ship?

with 12 episodes to go till the series ends – we’re going to make a prediction. T’eyla will re-appear as Queen of the Wraith – the Atlantis plan to get the Wraith onto regular food will work and we’ll end up with three factions – human feeding wraith, food feeding wriath and michael’s hybrids.

Stargate Atlantis 5×07 ooooh Scaaaarry! September 6, 2008

This was a fun scaaaaaaaaaaaaary episode…running through the mists fighting blind demons that emit their own fog.

Really dark – literally..i could hardly see what was going on..which is how it should be. Brilliantly produced and shot from a cinematographic point of view.

Beyond that….we got to see the first all Girl Atlantis away team and no doubt we’ll see more of them in the future…It sucks that Dr. Beckett is gone (again) but we know he’ll just keep coming back and back and back.

And hey no Teyla or Ronon in this episode at all!

Stargate Atlantis 5×06 Rodney Doesn’t Die August 24, 2008

Alright only 14 episodes left of Stargate Atlantis..and I guess it was time for another...We’ve been infected with a parasite and need to find some super ancient tech to save us episode..’

Yeaah we’ve had at least 40 of these episode (SG1 and Atlantis over the years) and this wasn’t necessarily better or worse..it was just kinda/sorta there.

Great to see Jeannie again – they really should find more reason to have Mrs. Miller on more often as she’s as bright as Rodney himself. And great to see Ronon Dax love McKay so much so touching…as was the drinking on the pier…i seem to remember McKay also out on the same pier with Dr. Beckett (after he died) too.

Joseph Mallozzi -Why did you kill Stargate Atlantis? August 21, 2008

Joe Mallozzi Exec Producer of Stargate Atlantis (who also blogs on WordPress) has opened up about the cancellation of Stargate Atlantis. I don’t understand why he didn’t fight more.

I don’t understand why this awesome writer would give up on the fans that support the show week in and week out.

Mallozzi wrote:

It’s been a bittersweet couple of days. On the one hand, I’m sorry to see the series end but, on the other hand, I’m extremely proud of what we’ve accomplished. 100 episodes is pretty damn impressive feat and, as evidenced by the quality of recent stories and the uptick in the ratings, we’ll be going out on a high. Even though I see a lot of anger directed at both MGM and Sci Fi, the fact is we couldn’t have done it without their support.

Mallozzi titled his post “All Good Things…” but this is not an All Good Things…ending. With Star Trek TNG the show was not canceled mid-season. No matter what Mallozzi writes, we the fans should be angry and upset at the way that Sc Fi channel treats Sci Fi fans. It’s just not right.

That said – Mallozzi deserves our respect and admiration for the openness that he shows on his blog and for the quality show that Stargate Atlantis truly is. While the journey has been shorter than it should have been, it’s been quite a ride.

While we know there will be a Stargate Atlantis movie..we still don’t know when Stargate Universe (the third Stargate TV series) will air – or even on which network it will show up on. Let’s hope that we’ll find out soon and the idiots that run Sci Fi channel won’t be involved in it either.

*Oh and don’t forget to sign the Save Atlantis petition (for whatever good it will do..)**

Save Atlantis Petition August 21, 2008

Yes it’s true Atlantis has been CANCELLED.

SCI FI Channel isn’t likely to listen to reason but hey no harm in trying. We were going to start up our own Save Atlantis petition but there is already one out there.


Some how, some way the jerkoffs that run Sci Fi need to understand that they need to treat fans with more respect.

Stargate Atlantis is being CANCELLED!! August 21, 2008

Neither the Wraith nor the Replicators, the G’ould or the Orii could beat Atlantis..but NBC Universal is canceling the show.

The current Stargate Season 5 WILL BE THE LAST season of Stargate. The last episode will air in January 2009.


Is Sci Fi Channel stoned? Who pays these clowns?

Stargate SG-1 had a 10 year run, Atlantis is doing well in the ratings and is arguably the best show currently running on Sci Fi channel. This current season with the command change was starting to look very promising and there is still so very much of the Pegasus Galaxy to explore.

It’s just wrong.

Stargate Atlantis – like SG-1 isn’t dead mind you. Instead the greedy self-serving braniacs at SciFi will keep Atlantis limited just to straight to DVD movies. Yes Stargate Continuum was a great movie – but personally I’d rather see a full season of episodes than 1 or 2 movies in a year.

“We’re excited to tell Atlantis stories on a bigger canvas,” said Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper, co-creators of SG-1 and Atlantis, in a statement. “The successes of the two original Stargate [direct-to-video] movies The Ark of Truth and Continuum have shown us the opportunities that the movie format offers. We have plans for both SG-1 and Atlantis to remain vital as we expand the franchise.” Atlantis will air a milestone 100th episode in January 2009.

Stargate 5×05 Dr. Weir Returns (again) August 16, 2008

Does any character ever really die in Stargate Atlantis?

Beckett dies then comes back

Now its Dr. Weir.

But because the actress that originally played her is too stuck up to come back to Atlantis – we now have a replicator body for Weir.

What? She’s floating frozen in space?

NAAAh that’s not enough to stop a replicator. There will come a time when she gets picked up and defrosted and we will see Weir (in her hot little replicator Fran body) again.
