View Full Version : This is a great episode

Rodney and Ronan are funny together, especially at the beginning.
The love triangle wasn't melodramatic or soap opera-ish at all
The beaming tech was cool
Seeing another runner was cool
Wraith actually walked through the gate (why did the ancients bother dropping those if everyone just uses ships these days? LOL)
Rodney running from the wraith was fantastic.

I think this was a solid stargate episode. Reminded me a bit of classic Sg-1 "Deadman Switch"

EDIT: DAMMMIT!! I WROTE "GREAD" instead of "great" ....I feel like an idiot...... :(

It sort of reminded me of that episode too.

I was reminded a bit too much of "runner" myself... same hostage scenario, same cave, same leading the wraith to a village and it being destroyed, same operation in the middle of nowhere. it's a good episode for what it is, although, the love triangle was painful to sit through. I'd score it a 6/10.

It was more of a cringeworthy episode :(

8/10, I loved the part when Rodney was running from the wraith, but I must agree with
naamiaiset, the episode was too similar to Runner

On one hand I am not satisfied that we have quite a lot so called stand alone-eps in this last season of sg-atlantis,there are so many lose ends and as we know they'll even introduce a probably quite exicting new enemy, but nonetheless I did like this episode very much.
It indeed felt like good old stargate with some funny elements in it and I would have apreciated this ep even more without knowing it's yet another kind of wasted chance to tie up some lose ends.

The only cringe worthy scene to me is at the very end with McKay and Ronon in the Atlantis gym

I liked the episode, but it's true that it was very similar to Runner... I liked how Keller came out, however, I really think her character has undergone a huge development since Missing!
Cringe worthy scenes for me were when Ronon was being unnecessarily mean to Rodney...

I liked Rodney an Ronan working together with their tracking. The finale fights were very good too.

i thought it was a great episode too. McKays reaction to seeing Ronon in the gate room was hilarious. some scenes were a bit a slow however but seeing Rodney actually killing Wraith was good, and Keller's fighting was good to show she has a rough side to her. and isnt completely useless when it comes to defending herself. only thing i would have changed, since id assume we'll never see the runner again, i think we should have had a scene with him getting culled or something after he went through the gate, would have added a bigger impact to the ending. and yeah, you just gotta love rodney and ronon working together

"we could be like batman and ronon"

.. "more like fatman"

Honestly, I liked it A LOT! Definitely 3/4 stars for this one! I think S5 has been very strong so far. I hope it stays so.

I hadn't thought about it until you mentioned this. But, I would agree. It was like early SG1. Yeah!!!
