I've been watching the second half of Atlantis and I'm really starting to get pissed. Season 1 was so good and the beginning of Season 2 held such potentionl that the bakc half has been such a major major let down.
The tower? sucked! Epiphany? sucked! Grace under pressure? sucked!
The hive was pretty good and critcal mass was interesting but overall, what a dissapointment.
I mean in the tower we find a sister city to atlantis and thats treated as a minor thing!! Epiphany we could have learned about ascenion but instead we get "captain kirk" shepperd. I am most pissed at the tower which could have given out a million things on the ancients but instead we get kirk again and a few drones. Hell even the characters arent shocked that there is Atlantis v2. I'd figure at least mckay would be thrilled!
This season had such promise but has really fallen short. No info on the nano virus from season 1. Nothing on the ancients or their history. we find a science ship and it gets blown up, a sister city and we just shrug our shoulders, we have yet to get any ancient tech, or have an episode that really expores the city post zpm.
I've been reading the threads in the episode folders and most people are tearing the back half to peices. I hope JM and MG read these threads and get a wake up call that they need some continuity in the show and if they are gonna do something big like say create another atlantis use it to further our understanding of ancients and the show not make it some campy sheppard love fest.
I'm really hoping the rest of S2 is better and and S3 starts to give us more information. I had such high hopes for atlantis but i'm starting to loose some of my interest in it with the way the episodes keep going.
i'm done gripping. anyone with me?
