I hate cliffhangers… especially when you have to wait months for the other half of the story!

 

Oh well, that said in and exercise of futility, this was an excellent episode. This first half of the Stargate Atlantis season has been, at least for me, the best one so far.

 

Kudos to the writers and the cast.

 

I wish they would give Teyla more to do though. She seems to get stuck in the background more than almost anyone else. Teyla needs a couple focus shows to build up her character more… just as long as they are good, well written, episodes. None of that crazy stuff they were doing before, in the previous two seasons, that tended to make her more of an outsider than anything else.

Keyla does seem to be a "burnt orange" shirt. She is often left behind or out of the action.

I was totally confused by the direction of this episode. It seemed that more was taking place than my tired little mind could process. Maybe I need the season break to review

I'm just waiting for them to return from season break and bring the turtles back to Atlantis!

Season break? If these so called mid-season breaks get any longer it will seem like a revival of an old, canceled, series rather than just a show returning from a break.

 

If the mid-season break is this long... how long is the end of season break going to be??? 

 

Stargate? Oh yeah, I remember that show... I think. What happened in the last show anyway? Okay, it’s coming back to me now that I stop and think about it, but the show is by no means fresh in my memory anymore.

 

Well, the good news is that the Stargate shows (SG-1 and Atlantis) will be back in April. 

 

As of yet, no exact date is posted on the http://www.scifi.com website as to just exactly when in April the Stargate shows will be back though.

Update, I just found a news article that places the date for the return of Stargate Atlantis and Stargate SG-1 as April 13, 2007.

 

Not so long from now. Cool.

 

I also read that Amanda Tapping will be joining the cast in season 4 of Stargate Atlantis, which is to start sometime next fall.

 

Now the bad news, the article I read stated that some of the current cast of Stargate Atlantis will die. 

 

What is it with writers these days anyway; do they really have to kill off so many characters? Don’t writers know how to write good endings for characters anymore? Ya know, like fading off into the sunset to find a new life and untold adventures somewhere else? That would leave more room for paperback novels too. Nope, they have to kill them for the dramatic effects and cheap emotional heart squeeze. What a cold, bloodthirsty, world we live in today.

StarWhat?  Let me search my memory banks and see if I can remember that of which you speak.

...OOHHHH!!  Stargate!  I have a vague recollection of that show.  ....But no, I can't remember the "cliffhanger" at all.  I'm sure that at the time, I must have been interested and I must have cared what was going to happen; but right now I can't think of a thing that happened.

Unfortunately it seems like more and more shows are having shorter seasons with more time off in between.

I hadn't heard that the characters died, though, I did hear that some were leaving.  I did not hear whose choice it was - the actor's or the writer's. 

Stargate went to killing off all their secondary characters for effect - I really had hoped that Atlantis wouldn't follow suit.  I guess we will have to wait and see.

Well, gotta tell you; between SGA and SG-1, Dr. Who, The Closer, AND Monk, and to a lesser degree (only because the show now fully disgusts me) BSG, my wife & I are now eagerly awaiting the start of this 'new' season. Or is it just the continuation of the first part of the season. We JUST DON'T KNOW!!!!

All I gotta say is PainKiller Jane BETTER be worth the wait. . . . oh, and the various other SciFi shows!
