          Typically, anti threads mix both positive and negative...such as, "Here's what I really hate about Season X/it used to be so much better in Season Y because...".

          People need a place to vent frustration as well as celebrate what they enjoyed...how a show they love is changing into something different that they either don't know they'll like or have pre-determined not to like because they didn't care for the changes that have already taken place.

          Anti threads aren't only for the ones that truly detest a season...they're also for those who have misgivings about it; and as a result, people do tend to reminisce about the things they love and miss or will miss.

            I've always liked snarky McKay, and Zelenka is a gem, but Weir never was written well enough for Torri's talents. TPTB still can't write good female characters, and I doubt they ever will (Carter being the exception, but there were a few different writers around when she was created).

            Teyla was supposed to be like Teal'c in that she could give us info on the PG, but all we've seen is her Tour-Guide Barbie explanations of farming communities. Her talents as a resource never were fully explored and now she is just as shocked as the rest of our team when they encounter a new world. There is nothing that sets her apart or makes her unique, like Teal'c, who is still a marvelous and interesting character, full of intelligence, strength, and yet a silent warmth that endears him to the viewer. Teal'c is a true leader among the Jaffa, and I have yet to see Teyla do anything "leaderly" with the Athosians.

            Sheppard was cute in season 1, and his "I don't want to lead" personality fit. Here was a character who could grow into his role as a leader. Alas, in season 2 he started bagging chicks for a hobby and everything else he did was static and the same, week after week. Now he is just, meh.

            Carson was the heart and soul, even with his failed attempts for a retrovirus. He really wanted to help. Dumping him was a mistake. Too big a hole for Jewel Staite to fill, I fear.

            The Wraith started out interesting, but everytime we get one we can identify with, they get killed. A good, recurring queen would have been fun. Michael isn't exactly a Wraith, so he doesn't count (as the Wraith don't want him either). SGA needed an Anubis, or Apophis-type villian. One never materialized. Kolya was close, but the writers messed him up too in Irresponsible.

            I'll probably watch bits and pieces of season 4, but I'm not going to go out of my way to do it, like I used to for SG1/SGA/BSG Fridays.

                well said i guess i just don't want to dwell and get lost in negativitly, which i can be prone to do... i wanted to remember the show i love

                ah either way i'll be happy as long as i can talk about the atlantis i love it should be cool

                  agreed i totally love that about elizabeth!

                          I remember the beginning of season one - so much potential, so much wide-eyed wonder for the new city and galaxy they had just discovered.

                          Ah...good times, good times...

                              I love the idea of this thread. Its kind of like an Irish wake . . . you remember and celebrate the good times so you can keep the tears at bay. LOL. I'll have to give my "best of" episodes some thought. I like all the characters, but my favorite three would have to be Shep, Elizabeth and Carson.
