Jumped up and loaded the SGU Season 1 DVD/DVR and rewatched Air after this amazing finale?

I know I did.

I haven't, but that is such a good idea. Air and Gauntlet are like bookends, some great symmetry there.

As per JM and Mark Savela's suggestion, I rewatched Air before Gauntlet.

I listened to Sanctuary while browsing the Live Discussion thread and remembering the last two years of fun. It's all over now though.

I know I did.Good idea, but I think it's going to take some time before I can re-watch this show.

I'll buy the season 2 dvd and just pretend season 1 never happened.

Why not just buy the season 2.5 set then? Look, I get that not everyone was enamored with the first season. But what would your collection be without the full series? Lacking, in my opinion.

If fans buy the entire series, the execs will see the upshot of sales and may give the franchise another shot. I'm a Browncoat. Trust me when I say the impossible can be done. We may never see a revival of the series, but a movie with a story arc resolution could be in the future somewhere.

I'll never understand people who didn't like season 1. I'm not saying you should love it, but the groundwork was laid in season 1 and I think it shouldn't be overlooked because **** didn't blow up every week or the gate wasn't used in every episode.

....People whined in every episode, they went back to earth using the stones to go to a bar, the had a what felt forced lesbian relationship (Although it sort of improved in Season 2). It was just an inconsistent mess and had bad pacing. Nothing to do with the stories they told. Just the way they wrote them. Although this happened in Atlantis as-well. They'd have stories that sounded go but were executed poorly

I would debate the point that what they portrayed in season one is pretty darned close to what would have happened in a real life scenario (negating the fact that gating to a ship on the other side of the universe is impossible). Folks weren't just picking up their cell phone to call loved ones, they were literally returning to a place of normalcy from a very alien environment.

I'd go have a real drink too. I'd sorely miss my Cap'n & Coke.

Oh, and my wife and kids too. :P

I took Joe Mallozzi's advice and watched "Air" part one the night before "Gauntlet" aired, and I am really glad I did.

How did Camile's relationship seem forced? I have re-watched Life several times and enjoyed it. Sure it's not the best episode of SG, but IMHO there's nothing wrong with it. Who wouldn't want to go to a bar and get drunk in the few hours they get back on Earth? I know if I had the opportunity I would go out and have a few drinks at the local bar with a friend. This is the way real people are.

I rewatched the Airs last night, a bit of Darkness, and then Time. Just going through the rest of my favourite scenes in other episodes too ("We'll never be done" in Justice, the last ten minutes of Cloverdale, the big conversation in the Greater Good, Eli/Ginn scenes in Trial and Error, Riley's death...).

Man, I can't believe how much I've forgotten since watching the first few episodes. Like, Rush was a smoker. That just disappeared off my mind somewhere along the way. Oh, and Eli and Chloe's first scene really made me disappointed they kinda skipped out on any more Eli/Chloe tension in the back half of season two. Much as I love Ginn, I mean, come on...

Agreed. I was shocked by how much was already up when Gauntlet had yet to air. Last time I looked near the end The Hunt was the last one that was posted. I'll bet that hurts DVD sales. I know I'm not going to be in a hurry to buy them when I can just stream them through Netflix.

I'm doing a rewatch. I've worked my way up to "Light" so far. I'm trying to space it out so that I will finish Season 1 by the time my Season 2 DVD arrives...

I'm also doing a rewatch of Season 1. Mostly for some fanfics I want to write. I'm up to Light so far on episodes. If I don't fall asleep tonight, I'll continue watching the dvds.
