    Definitely a good episode.

    I am actually glad they didn't kill off Katie. I was afraid of that at the end.

    I had figured it was some sort of Pegasus Galaxy thing.

    I loved the McKay/Teyla and Shep/Ronon and Shep/Carter scenes.

    Overall, I give it a 4/5.

        So how many people thought they had killed Katie in the end there? hehe.
        This episode had a very "Sunday" feel, in the fact that it utilized all the flash backs, one minute it's present day, the next it's 10 hour earlier.

        I wonder if the writers felt the episode would not be interesting enough if it had been told straightforward, and thus needed to do all the bouncing around. I thought it was a great episode, just hope this back and forth doesn't become common place.

          This was so much better than Sunday. And, I'd say it is better than all of the previous season 4 episodes. It was definitely more suspenseful. It wouldn't have been that way if it was just straightforward. However, the ending seemed a bit rushed.

            OMG, if they had tried to kill that Katie off too, I would have quit right now!

            That Rodney/Katie storyline was too amazingly adorable! And the Ronan/Sheppard, Teyla/Rodney parts were just awesome.

            Plus, I love how the alien child illness is how the whole Atlantis is saved...priceless! The mainland Ronan part with Sheppard was just cracking me up!

            Really, one of the best yet this season for me!

            But I still say, complete team episodes are a lot better in my opinion than when the entire story is focused on just one character (ie Travelers). Even though Rodney was kind of a focus- really everyone played a major great part in this one! .....

              You know, this was a REALLY GOOD episode!!!

              Zelenka wielding a pipe and bashing soldiers. It's always the quiet ones, y'know..

              Lorne running around on speed. boy, he's going to crash bad.

              And Teyla and Ronon both got to save the day.

              And thank god, they did not kill Katie. For a second there, I thought, oh no, she's dead.

              Heh, they got the Pegasus Galaxy version of the mumps

                This episode had great character emphasis, and it was a very orginal episode.

                  I love a good mystery.

                  Tabula Rasa was a good mystery and a good solid episode. So far it's the first episode of the season I have even remotely liked. And thankfully I wholly enjoyed tonight's episode.

                  I especially loved the filmography and the use of a lens diffuser for that soft, hazy feel. It complimented the tone and feel of the episode very well.

                  It was also neat to see most of the cast out of their element. Basically opposite of how they all function normally in the show. For instance the greatest Rodney in-joke with merely pressing the Enter button on his computer terminal to save the day.

                  A solid A.

                      My favorite episode of the season so far, written very well. Lots of suspense, and it was great seeing everyone work together (or work against each other) without any memory of anything. I was actually kinda hoping that Katie got killed at the end. *dodges flying objects* Its not that I don't like her character, its just that I think it would have made a good ending to the episode after how it was being built up. Then again, it would probably just reinforce the idea that Stargate writers hate doctors...

                      Oh, and FINALLY Teyla gets some kind of important role after such a long time!

                        I think it was kinda interesting how Lorne and the soldiers were taking the pills and rounding up civilians, but they didn't know why.

                          Meh.

                          It was interesting and different, I'll give it that. But it was only really suspenseful at the beginning because you knew they would eventually find teyla and that ronon and sheppard would eventually find the drug.

                          It seems a common habit with TPTB these days. There is a problem, then there is a bunch of dialog between the characters which essentially creates a plan to deal with said problem, and then the rest of the episode is just that plan being carried out. That and/or the ending is quick and cheesy.

                          I hate knowing how the episode is going to end 30 minutes in. However, if that is the case, I'd like it to be in an episode like this one.

                          On the flip side, the acting was superb and Martin Wood did an excellent job directing.

                              I suppose I agree with you somewhat, but thats generally how most Stargate episodes are set up. The ending gets resolved pretty quickly, and you can usually see it coming, but it was still fun to watch.
