I have to say....

Curse you MGM for cancelling SGA to make room for SGU!!!

Yes, MGM, I'm talking to you!!! You pulled the plug on Atlantis before Season 5 even aired!!!

Atlantis has been getting better and better!!! Why did you cancel a show that is still successful!!??

Hey nothing wrong with a little....I actually lost my train of thought.
Any way. I actually whined last night that it was ending, with episodes like that one.

Yeah, every great Atlantis episode this season is going to hurt more and more knowing the show is being cancelled for another show that could very well not be good at all. Talk about risk. :S

I have to say that I am the opposite on that. I actually like the general concept better than the characters. Sowwy. :p

Well thats OK. I just have a feeling that if they are going for edgy. They will succeed by the characters they have. But.

To the mods,

Sorry for making such a spontaneous thread, hey I was in a spontaneous mood after seeing the preview for SGA's next episode. So feel free to remove or merge this puppy into another thread. :p

I apologize for any confusion or rolling of the eyes by the moderation team. :D

Best,

Brian "The white dog" Gate!

And the thing is, theoretically, "The Lost Tribe" should even be better than "First Contact" was.

You know even seeing that major spoiler, it made the episode Wow so far and I have not even seen it yet.

Especially based on past experience with two-parters on SG-1 and Atlantis.

And the tending knowlege that second halves of seasons are usually better then the first.

After watching First Contact The New Alien Race had to know Atlantis Shield frequency in order to fly though the shield.

So the Alien Race is


The Asgard

It is only Possible Choice.

Is that even possible? o.o That episode was so good...I can't see having something beyond that. If they can do better than that episode, then I will be absolutly shocked. I am still shocked of how good FC was. :D

Best episode and most likely, Best 2-parter episode EVER! :D

I originally thought SGU was an awesome idea, i mean c'mon who wouldnt like a new stargate series. After reading updates and finally hearing that the new series would mean an end to Atlantis....not so much. SG1 I can understand, you can only save earth so many times before you get a few days off. ha ha but it seems to me like the "Lantiens" are just getting started.

Unfortunately i dont see it happening.

The sad thing is that i believe Season 5 of Atlantis has been the best front half of any season of Atlantis. There have been so many great episodes and they are really developing some good storylines.

Atlantis could go on for another 2 seasons easily. Its just unfortunate that Scifi pulled the plug before Atlantis could reach its full potential.

The most likely thing to happen with SGA if it continues to be successful is have multiple movies on SCI FI. SCI FI and MGM just signed a major movie airing deal, so those odds went up.

As per SGU, it has a lot to prove inorder to keep my interest. I will be very critical of every detail. With SGA I overlook the eps like "Whispers" and still find the good in them.

When's the next ep gonna air? Don't tell me I have to wait several months!

And yes, it sucks that those SOB's cancelled SGA. S5 has been so awesome. The space battles have been really well done and the script is solid. First Contact was awesome. Loved it when the aliens abducted Jackson and Rodney. Not as awesome as BAMSR was though....

And the thing is, theoretically, "The Lost Tribe" should even be better than "First Contact" was.I don't know about that. I really liked S2's Lost Boys, but then came The Hive. I hated The Hive. Also, I didn't like S4's This Mortal Coil, but Be All My Sins Remember'd is my favorite episode to date. So the two-parters don't always have two good parts. Fingers crossed though...

And for me, the back half of S5 doesn't really look that good (based on spoilers). But we'll see. I tell people not to judge SGU without seeing it, so I won't do that to the rest of S5 either.:p


When's the next ep gonna air? Don't tell me I have to wait several months!Two weeks, friend.;)

Last Friday's episode was one of the prime examples of why Atlantis should stay on the air for a couple more seasons at the most. Along with The Shrine with great character un-development (if you can call it that) and emotions, this franchise is just getting better in better

im not mad at them. but it does make me wonder. is SCIFI a good channel? i wont be surprised at all that, in s5 of SGU, it too will be miraculously cancelled. and then annother spinoff, and it too is cancelled after 5 seasons. for Scifi, 5 seasons seems to be lightspeed for SCIFI. after all, SG1 lasted 5 seasons on scifi too
