View Full Version : What are you most/least looking forward to?

So, now that the premiere is just over a month away, and we have pretty solid information on more than half the episodes, which are you most looking forward to, and which episodes are you least looking forward to? You can rate episodes from most anticipated to least if you wish, like I have done below.

I personally think it is a pretty good line up this year, it looks like an even better line up than last year with better ideas at the start of the back half following the two parter, it was a bit slow last year after SoW and didn't pick up again until Midway. Too many fillers, I thought they were good but there were too many at once. This year, for possibly the first time, it looks like they will have a stronger start to the back half with more story relevant episodes.

-Most Anticipated-
The Lost Tribe
Daedalus Variations
The Queen
Ghost In The Machine
Prodigal
The Shrine
Whispers
Search And Rescue
Inquisition
Outsiders
Broken Ties
Tracker
-Least Anticipated-

I made that list yesterday, and actually found it very hard to do. And as I said last night, I'm actually quite looking forward to Tracker, more than I was looking forward to Tabula Rasa last year, and that turned out great, so I'd say the fact that an episode I'm quite looking forward to is my LEAST anticipated bodes very well.

(Sorry if this type of thread has been done for season 5, I searched but couldn't find anything):)

I am looking forward to most of the season. Some really good eps, especially the 2 part mid-season eps with Daniel Jackson. I am also looking forward to seeing what they do with Michael and how they save Teyla and her child. I am also looking forward to the return of Carson Beckett and how they will write him back into the show.

I am not too crazy about this love triangle thingy. SG writers have not really written romance and shipping in the past, so I will be cautious with that. Still will not make a judgement until I actually watch it.

Oh and most of all, what g.o.d. said. I was overly thrilled to hear about that because they were my favorite aliens in SG-1!

I'm also looking forward to the fillers/non-arc related episodes being on par or perhaps even better than the real eps for a change! I'd say it is possible with what we have heard so far.

Daedalus Variations and The Shrine seem to me to be the only episodes really like this in Season 5 so far, all the other episodes seem to have some sort of importance in terms of either character arcs or story arcs. They both sound great IMO, both very different but both great.

I'm discounting The Seed from all of this as we know suprisingly little about it and I think it would be hard to form a valid opinion from what we do know. That could likely be a filler/non arc episode too, but I guess you could say it ties in with the 'return of Carson' arc.

The Seed is going to surprise a lot of people, since hardly any spoilers were released.

I think DV and The Shrine are going to be some fan favorites. DV looks like a Farscape-esc type episode and The Shrine is going to show how good an actor DH can be it would seem.

And i am most definately not looking forward to this supposed "love triangle".

I am reserving judgement on the all girly team till i see it though!

"The Queen" is the only one that sounds half-way entertaining to me, mainly because it deals with Teyla and Todd. Poor Teyla gets gyped by TPTB constantly and it will be good to see her get some quality air-time.

Least:

Anything with Keller. . .and the infamous love triangle. I was going to buy a barf bucket, but decided my TV remote would be more useful when these scenes appear.

Looking forward to:

Daniel in Atlantis
Seeing Carson again

Not looking forward to:

The shippy triangle
J/T (unless I can view it as friendship)
GitM

Reserving judgment on:

The all-girl team


I need to go read some spoilers...

Which will more than likely be a few vague comments, a bit of tension between Ronon and McKay, and perhaps a kiss or two spaced out across the season, taking up all of about 5 to 10 minutes overall.

June 6th, 2008, 12:18 PM
I'm very much looking forward to S&R, DV, Whispers, FC, TLT, Inquisition, Remnants and the 100th ep but honestly every single ep sounds great imo
Sam's in two eps, Michael's back and he's still obsessed with Teyla's baby, Carson's in five eps, Woolsey should be a very different but interesting base administrator, Daniel and some Asgard willl show up in the mid-season two-parter. what else? oh yeah, Todd's back too and the team will encounter a new enemy...
is it july yet? :D

I think you're right, chances are at the end of the season we'll look back and wonder what we were all worrying about. It'll get a few mentions here and there but it won't take up any considerable screen time and to be honest I'd rather see time spent on Ronon, Keller and Rodney than trying to force a romance else where.

As for what I'm looking forward to: well the season premiere obviously, JM promised space battles in The Daedalus Variations which will always win me over, The Shrine has a the potential to be wonderful and Whispers sounds like a great deal of fun.

I think they're probably the four episodes I'm looking forward to the most right now.

One can hope.


I'm looking forward to Daniel.
I'm looking forward to more Teyla.
I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with Woolsey.
I'm looking forward to more Keller, but am probably in the minority.
I'm actually just looking forward to new episodes in general.

looking forward to "the queen", "broken ties" and the mid-season two parter the most.

not looking forward to a love triangle, woolsey (unless his character changes, which it seems it will), and I'm undecided on an asgard appearance. to me, it seems a little pointless to bring one back just to (most likely) kill him soon after.

I think the The Queen, The mid-season two parter, Daedalus Variations will be the best in the season. Tracker, Search and Rescue and Whispers seems to be only an "average" episode. :o

But I have to say, that almost every episode seems to be interesting. When I read the spoilers for season 4, I knew some episode won't be my favorite. But now I think Atlantis will step out from the shadow of SG-1 and they will have their best season. I can hope only it won't be the last. ;)

June 7th, 2008, 01:06 AM
Looking forward to:


- Woolsey as the new commander : he'll bring conflict and he'll make mistakes. It's going to be both fun and interesting to watch,
- Daniel in Atlantis : at last !!!
- Seeing Carson again. Someone who can act and who can convey so much with his eyes. I wish he would stay for the whole season.


Not looking forward to:

- Keller and Mackay,
- Keller and Ronon,
- Keller and Sheppard (more scenes apparently between them?)
- Keller's amazing new skills.

Looking Forward to...
-The Shrine
-Daedalus Variations
-The McKay and Jackson Speed Talk hour (Who will reign supreme? Should we make bets!??!?)

NOT
-the continuation of plot lines from season four.
-Love triangle (Maybe all this talk of love triangleness is an attempt to de-sensitize us all to it in advance? That's why all the interviews I'm seeing mention it now right? Right?!)
-More on base shipping (cause then it might continue to the next week! I'm okay with the "alien-girl of the week" though. Yeah, I know, it's a weird opinion).

I agree. It's probably getting blown way out of porportion and won't amount to anything more than about 5-10 minutes screentime over the entire season, so I'm really not that bothered by it at all.

Search and Rescue.
Broken Ties.
The Seed
The Queen
Prodigal

I truly hope it is being blown out of proportion, but I wonder why JM,JM,DH & JS all mentioned this triangle if its so small and insignificant why all the mentions? I dont belive on these occasions any of them have been misquoted. so although it could be that there all pulling our collective legs, I still feel the need (in the appropriate places) to bemoan the triangle of doom.

This is one instance where im praying that your right and im horribly,horibly wrong.

Looking forward to;

The Shrine.

Really excited about:
Search & Rescue (it's the premiere!)
The Queen (Teyla as a Wraith Queen! and more Todd!)
FC/TLT (Need I say more?)

Overall, I'm quite looking forward to seeing how Woolsey settles in at Atlantis

Somewhat looking forward to:
The Seed (Carson's back! :D)
Broken Ties (more Tyre!)
The Shrine (I hope all the hype over it pays off)
Whispers (while I don't approve of the concept of an all-female team as "gender balancing", I want to watch this ep before passing judgment on the actresses themselves. the premise of the ep is somewhat interesting)

Not all that psyched about:
Daedalus Variations (seriously, didn't we have this same ep about 20 times in SG-1? :P)
Ghost in the Machine
Everything after TLT (so far)

Dreading:
Tracker, 'nuff said.

Yes, I'm looking forward to that too. Seeing the new races, new tech and new ships should make a nice change a refresh the show a bit, and considering we have lots of Wraith too it's not like we can complain that the new races will be stealing their screentime like with the Asurans.

I liked what they did with the Asurans closer to the end of their story, where they interlinked them with the Wraith. It looks like the same thing will happen right off the bat now, with the Lost Tribe at least.

I'm looking forward to EVERYTHING.
I'm looking forward to seeing Daniel again.
I'm interested in how the transition from Carter to Woolsey is going to play out.
I'm want to see what they do with Keller considering the backlash of her being a regular now.
I'm sorta interested in the Teyla/Todd/baby arc but hope it wraps up relatively quickly, but still like Teyla.

Asqard? There's gonna be Asqard?
An all-women team?

Ok, yes, I've heard these things. But I shouldn't have a clue. Seriously. Way too many spoilers are leaked/given away on this show. I get the feeling that people have already made up their minds and the season hasn't even aired! Sit back, relax and enjoy ~ that's my motto.

I could quite happily watch the McKay and Sheppard show every week! I love those guys. Yeah, I love the fact that Rodney doesn't quite know what to make of Sheppard because he doesn't expect him to be as smart as he is and it completly throws him off balance. ;)

4. The return of Teyla as a team member without being sidelined by pregnancy and invisible lover issues
5. Carson, Zelenka and Lorne
6. No Carter

Least looking forward to:

1. Any scenes with Keller
2. Anything about McKay's lovelife
3. The inevitable "special episode" about McKay
4. Badly written female characters thrown in for the purpose of looking cute or romancing the guys.

I'm hoping we get much more than the McKay/Sheppard show.. I've had my fill of the repetitive banter between these two..its gotten so predictable that I can finish McKays sentences.

Looking forward to more Sheppard and Ronon moments and can't wait for Search and Rescue, and especially Broken Ties.

I'm looking forward to a lot more Teyla,, and it looks like she will get a lot more to do this season.

More Sheppard/Teyla scenes as Teyla is really the one who gets Sheppard to open up.. all we get between John and Rodney is endless babble, where we learn nothing new about the characters at all.


I'm looking forward to Remnants and Inquisition and hope we get a more serious Sheppard focued ep. To me Sheppard is the most underused character on the show and I feel he has the most potential but the writers just tend to give him one liners or have him run around with a gun.. not that I dont enjoy seeing him in action hero mode.. but I'd like something a bit deeper from the character this season, but at the same time please keep him in character and don't turn him into some ruthless killer.

Not really looking forward to anything with Keller or Carson,.. neither really hold my interest and am caustiously optimistic about Woolsey... i think.

My least anticpated eps are Whispers, Outsiders and particulary The Shrine..

EdenSG
June 16th, 2008, 01:03 PM
I can’t really say what eps I am looking forward to the most because while I do read and enjoy spoilers, I take them with a grain of salt and try not to speculate on them too much as generally they are not always reliable or only one piece of the picture. I guess I don’t want to build my hopes up (or down) or have too many preconceived ideas about any one episode because things are never quite the way I imagine them to be. I don’t want to set myself up for disappointment expecting something to happen that doesn’t.

So instead of listing eps, I would like to answer the question this way:
What I am looking forward to the most is the potential, the surprise, the excitement of what might happen and all the possibilities a new season brings.

I am also looking forward to:
- those moments in an episode where I go, “wow, that was great” or “gee, I can’t believe that just happened”.
- those little character moments that make me smile or surprise me or even make me a little sad.
-seeing the team interactions, team friendship moments and how Woolsey will be fitting in.
- seeing familiar faces again; Lorne, Zalenka, Caldwell, Chuck etc….
-to having Carson back for 5 ep!
- some adventure, some excitement and some great special effects along the way and a few moments of sitting on the edge of your seat tension.

I am not looking forward to those eps or scenes I will not like – though I have no idea which eps/scenes there will likely be a few (or maybe a lot) I don’t particularly like.

Till I see how it all plays out I am neutral on:
Keller/Ronon/McKay
All girl team
Teyla and baby
(I am in the camp that believes that – at least for the first two, that it will be much ado about nothing)

At this point I guess I am looking forward to seeing all the eps. I know there are certain eps that others are already not looking forward to – that is okay. There have been eps that I love that many others have hated and visa versa. As I said, I try not to prejudge eps beforehand. One thing I can say for certain is that one fan’s disaster ep is another fan’s treasured ep.
So I guess you could say I am looking forward to discovering those little treasures hidden within the season 5 eps

I am looking forward to:
More Jennifer and her growth/changes
more teyla (PLEASE!!!)
the r/j/m triangle (I didn't "drink the koolaid"! :P )- I know it won't be too overt.
all the eps I have seen spoilers for except the following.....
I am not looking forward to :
The rodney mckay show....(can't stand the character!)
mcshep show (they are not the only two there!)
carson back again (let the poor man rest in peace)

I'm looking forward to Ronon and Rodney realising that Keller is a whiny little girl and neither of them will go for her ;)

Can't wait to see Rodney and Carson either, it's just not the same without Carson. ;) And lots and lots of Sheppard and McKay, they are my favourite characters after all. And Zelenka aswell, but not anywhere near Keller because she was mean about him. ;)

Looking forward to more Jenn. Hopefully some Ronon/Jenn
Looking forward to more Teyla.
Looking forward to more Ronon.
Looking forward to Carson. I missed him so much.

Not looking forward to Woolsey. Yes, I know the character will create conflict, but he doesn't have the cojones to run a war.
Can we have a little less of the McShep show? Love them both, but they're not everything there is to SGA.

Looking forward to all of the shows. I'll take anything Stargate I can get. :D

Looking forward to

The Queen--more Teyla and more Todd
The Shrine
In general: Carson back, briefly. Secondary characters like Lorne, Radek, and Caldwell.

Least looking forward to

Ghost in the Machine--I really dread everything I've read about this one. :S
Whispers

In general: the queasy triangle of McRonifer. I wish they would stay with the shippy hints of previous seasons. More SG-1 crossovers.

I want the "old" kicking azz teyla back! (I understand it is hard to do that while pregnant...but once the baby is born....)
Ok Less Mckay, mcshep, carson (the poor little man is dead after all!),and woolsey!

I can't wait to see any McKay scenes and what funny lines he will come up with in season 5 :) Especially when he's with Shep, those two are comedy gold when they're on it! ;)

Least looking foward to? Well, it's still Keller and that will never change. I would look forward to her if she was with Woolsey though, they would be great together! Two whiny newbies, made for each other I say. ;)

Im most looking forward to the *insert girlish squee here* the romance. We havent had much of that on Atlantis in the first four seasons. Im thinking since the show is established now we might *crossing fingers* get a little more of that. Im least looking forward to Weir (if she returns) I just dont likethat story thread. We've already had a story thread of an established team member Ford going loco against the team. just my opinion.
