    I would have figured McKay was a natural for Shep's team, anyway, by dint of fact that he's the smartest of the crew and he knows the most about the gate and whatnot.

    I really enjoyed this episode probably more than rising. I was sort of wishing that they would have sent the darkness to the wraith colony. That would have been a nice touch.

    That would have been AWESOME! Why didn't anyone think of that?! That would have been much cooler, and they would have dealt an incredible blow to the Wraith.

    Obviously that ship would have immediately drawn the creature too it, even though the Shadow would be in orbit. After it was done draining that naquadah reacter it would have been HUGE and caused a lot of damage to the Wraith "mothership," and maybe would have killed a few of the SOBs in the process! We would have had our revenge for Colonel Sumner, to some degree.

    A disappointing missed opportunity (sigh). I almost wish you hadn't said anything about it. Good idea!

    Edit: Oooh, it gets even better! The entity would likely stay around the Stargate while it was draining the naquadah reactor. The Wraith would send Darts to investigate, and they would get "eaten up" by the Shadow and cause it to grow larger, and surround the gate more.

    It any Wraith Darts dialled the Gate and tried to escape, the entity would draw power from the gate (for at least 38 minutes) and grow exponentially larger. So, the Wraith would not be able to use the gate, which keeps Pegasus safe, and Wraith could not escape.

    Once the entity was done draining the Terran naquadah reactor, the Wraith Darts, and the Stargate (whenever it was active) it would seek the next largest power source; the Wraith "mothership." Of course the Wraith would have to survive, but the Shadow attack would limit their capability (and they could possibly lose their mothership) which helps level the playing field and allow us humans from Earth to be able to effectively defeat the Wraith (eventually) when the Ancients could not.

    The story practically writes itself! The only flaw I could see is if the entity went to the Sun as the largest power source instead of the ship, but if it's smart enough not to go back to its cage, its smart enough not to go after a star.

    Or not. Perhaps the Wraith knows all about this creature...and knew how to use it to destroy Ancient colonies.

    Think the Atlantis gang would need more information before they decide to do that kind of thing...

    Besides, judging by dialogue between Sheppard and Teyla, he's already put his team together. That, by the way, is something that annoyed me a little: It only got mentioned in passing, and we weren't even told who the team members would be. What made him pick Teyla? Who else did he pick? Are we meant to just assume everyone in the opening titles got picked?

    I was just assuming that was something they were going to make clear when they finally go off-world. There wasn't much point in telling us who's on the team in this episode, because it wouldn't have made any difference. It still would've gone by in the midst of conversation, because the entire personnel was acting as a team.
    It's a Fargate! It's different.

    That's just what we need, the Wraith learning to ascend. They don't know how smart these Wraith are or what kind of technologies they have. I would think they would leave them be until they can better asses the situation. They are going to come after Atlantis anyway, its better if they don't have a bigger reason than just to feed.

    My humble opinion

    I don't think they'd learn to ascend by being killed by an energy being. They'd have to capture and study it...I doubt they have the equipment ready for just such an occasion. Plus it took the Ancients millions of years of study, and thousands of years of mental discipline to Ascend. I don't think the Wraith are into Zen things.

    They can't be too smart if they let a couple humans just waltz in and kill their Keeper. And their technology wasn't that impressive to be honest...their Darts didn't even have shields.

    the jumpers don't have shields either. But at least they have Glowy Jellyfish, a large stock of them, apparently. And Even 1 jellyfish is enough to take down a dart.

    Allthough, in TLC, the GJODs could destroy things, and still exist....in Rising, when they hit a dart, they were destroyed...

    That great big mangly jesus irritates me as well. Then there's the kids, I can just hear the line "Ginko Bolo has something to say to you" being spoken every single week after the little brat has fingled something he shouldn't have. The extra's bill must be huge on Atlantis. I bet as the season goes on and they get more strapped for cash, we'll see less and less 'atmostphere personnel'.

    Watched the episode again today with my usual group. We had it projected on some taped-together cloth or something which was hanging on the wall (which made me want a projector even more than I already did) and satisfied our manly hunger by ordering pizza. For some reason, I liked it much more the second time around ('Hide and Seek', that is - the pizza I only ate once). McKay definately made the episode. That guy is just getting cooler and cooler.

    And I have to mention the opening credits sequence. I just love it! And that goes for both the visuals and the theme music. And I loved how Goldsmith weaved in the other Atlantis theme in there (the theme that was first heard in 'Lost City'... in this version it's the 'choir' part). Just great.

    Well, everyone knows my previous early statements about me hoping Lt. Ford doesn't end up like Mayweather of Enterprise -- i.e. few on-screen moments save the occasional episode for himself here and there, and little to do. We're only on the 2nd episode so I hope this changes over the long term. As of right now and what I saw in "Hide and Seek" (featuring Anubis' cousin, LOL, a strange parallel between the episodes), I'm not happy so far with Ford.

    He let out SUCH a terrifying scream when the darkness got him, but afterwards... just a FEW burns? Oh c'mon, I was hoping it'd be far more horrifying and scarrific than that and that they'd have to find some Ancient healing technology. He just had a few red patches that we could see, and that was it. Not terribly scary, and something akin to a staged horror movie

    I hope McKay's device is not a one-off and that if it really is depleted, that they can find some way to recharge it for him. After all, it could be kind of an interesting dynamic contrast, as he isn't exactly a bona fide "courageous" type -- and maybe the shield helps him get braver over time but it isn't a magical device that always works.

    If you want a truely terrifying "darkness", check out Stephen King's short story "The Raft". If THAT happened to Ford, I'm sure we'd all have problems sleeping.

    wierd....i heard some one say that Teyla is not being developed enough....it's not that...to me all the character are being developed almost equally. and Ford is in no way like Mayweather...im really sure...he already had more lines then Mayweather in the first season i think you rush to judge way too fast...it was just the 3rd epsiode of the 1st season, give them more time....they only have 20eps for a season right now.

    This ep was fun! It had me LOLing a lot. MacKay and Beckett and MacKay and Sheppard are shaping up to be good teams to watch.

    So these Ancient were some cruel dudes, eh? Imagine, keeping that poor sentient creature trapped in that awful cage, alone and hungry, for some 10,000 years!

    Yup, those pesky Ancients caused lots of mischief during their time....

    It was nice to see a little interaction between the only two female leads, if even for only one small scene.

    I liked how the names & places of real persons, like Doug Flutey(sp?) and real teams and real movies were used. Very cool touches. There's an almost unscripted feel to this show, so far, and I like it!

    A Cherokee elder sitting with his grandchildren told them,
    "In every life there is a terrible fight – a fight between two wolves.
    One is evil: he is fear, anger, envy, greed, arrogance, self-pity,
    resentment, and deceit. The other is good: joy, serenity, humility,
    confidence, generosity, truth, gentleness, and compassion."
    A child asked, "Grandfather, which wolf will win?"
    The elder looked the child in the eye. "The one you feed."

    I agree. I thought the Rising opener was bland, but I kinda expected that. This week's was a nice blend of Rising's, SG-1's and it's own, I think. There's not too much, but just enough of SG-1 in the music to know the two series are family.

    SG-1 Lockdown SPOILERS







    Have you ever been struck by lightning (that's what they compared it to)? I know I haven't, but I also know that most of the damage is internal, not external. Just because someone looks ok doesn't mean they are ok. Take the russian in Lockdown. He was dying but he didn't look any worse than Ford. I don't know about you, but I would have screamed about as loud as Ford if I was in that much pain.

    I like the ep.
