    Why did I know that was coming? Truth was I sort of wondered why no one at the entire antartic outpost had hats on, but had to wear really warm clothing otherwise.

    I think his cap was in his back pocket, however since he was jumping out of the helicopter in a bit of a hurry, he didn't have time to reach back and put it on.

    Well, it really really really really bugs me.

    Frozen wasn't so bad. I won't mention The Hatless Ep That Must Not Be Named (I think you all know which one it is) but this really sent me almost into orbit.

    Mr.MC - sensing that Jack was about to bail out - tried to help the Colonel out by shouting at him to get a hat on before I popped an artery, but ...

    I often wonder if anyone on the writing/production team (given where it's filmed I can't believe this) has actually been outside when it's colder than freezing point.

    Mind you, at least worrying about the hat thing stopped me getting really really wound up about the Scottish patch and Beckett's Scottish accent.

    But having ranted about all that: I feel that I'm really going to like Atlantis. So that's good.

    Some of us are mainly Atlantis fans so, no, I don't know which episode you are referencing.

    I haven't been to Antarctica, but I have been to Alaska and I've stood on a glacier. A very large glacier. I didn't have a hat on (I did have it with me) and I wasn't cold. The reflected sun was actually warm. Of course, I wasn't in the interior of Antarctica, where you would be surrounded by more cold than I was. I'm not up on my SG1 lore but I guess the base must be deep in the interior, right? Not at the coastal regions or the peninsula. I see that the interior can get as warm as -30C (-22F) during the summer.

    The ep MC is referencing is "Solitudes" (SG-1 Series 1).
    More later about all that to explain. (RL School run beckons.... )

    Edit : Never mind...it's being discussed enough in various threads already.

    Think Helicopter. Think drone. Think of the most dangerous thing you can iamgine, then remind yourself the drone is more dangerous. Think your only seconds away from being blone into itty bitty pieces think of a man who is survivor, tell me which is it more sensible to do?

    Stay in the helocipter which is about to be BLOWN UP and muck around looking for a HAT or RUN AWAY BEFORE YOU GET BLOWN UP?

    It's not like they get all that far from the helicopter anyway. After all, O'Neill actually almost catches the drone in his hand. If it had hit they would have died, even if they were a few feet from the chopper.

    MC's point, I think, is that they should have had hats on to start with. Next time you see a science program with people at antartica, you'll notice they have a tendency to wear a LOT more clothing of all kinds than either O'Neill or Sheppard was wearing.

    Yes, that's a large part of my point. I have just watched that scene again (oh, the hardship) and Jack is actually wearing a knitted jobby when in the helicopter, and rips it off before jumping out (presumably as he rips off the headset.

    Which doesn't quite redeem him in my book, but.... People flying around down there should be ready for anything, which includes bailing out with enough equipment to stay live for more than 6 minutes or so.

    It wouldn't be so bad if they didn't do it every freakin' time

    But do we really want Sheppard wearing more clothes? Less is good, I think.

    Just rewatched this episode, so have some more thoughts on it. I liked Teyla more second time around - she could turn out to be quite an interesting character. Will be interesting to see how the Sheppard/Teyla dynamic is developed.

    Actually, I think the character interactions for Atlantis look very promising. There's potential for all the characters to have very different relationships with each other - they're quite a diverse group. It's a shame Robert Patrick is only on board as a guest star though, as he's a great actor and his character would have worked well alongside Sheppard.

    McKay/Beckett was definitely my favourite pairing of the episode though. Those guys are great together!

    Apologies if this has been raised somewhere else, but having just seen the first episode of Atlantis for the second time on Sky One (Mix) I am now convinced I'm not mad and did actually see something which I can't seem to find any comment on. Just a little thing, mind you. I've sort of double posted this as I only saw this part of the forum after querying this elsewhere, but I imagine a moderator will kindly sort it out if it's too out of place there.

    OK, so Colonel O'Neill is dethawed by the time Atlantis starts. But is he also not Brigadier General O'Neill at this point? Dr Weir is still around at this point so this must be pre-Atlantis.

    So, why is it that the bottle of champagne which is the last article to come through the Atlantis Stargate is signed by one Colonel O'Neill, and not by (at least) a General O'Neill? I've seen comments here about the handwriting on the note, but not about its actual content.

    Hey, I know, it's a nitpick and then some but there doesn't seem to have been any mention of it?

    It does say General Jack O'Neill

    Here's a link to a screencap:

    Ah, right. Despite being close up to the screen I was obviously mistaking the G for a C and reading the first e as an l. It's interesting how the mind does that sometimes - it's the same number of letters in both, and apparently you don't actually read all of a word to get its meaning. So thinking the G was a C and it being the same sort of length word must have resulted in my getting my wires crossed. So rather than having a go at the continuity guys, they obviously deserve a pat on the back as that could easily have been overlooked.

    I've just watched the Stargate S4 ep The Light and had to have an Atlantis related laugh.

    When Jack meets the young boy who has been hiding in the Goa'uld pleasure palace the boy introduces himself.

    Boy: Loren
    Jack: I don't know what that means
    Boy: It's my name

    Oh man!! They're either recycling scripts, or... and this is my preference given the homages to other sci-fi shows, giving a nod to Stargate.

    I just finishing rewatching my tape of Rising. I just notice that when Jack was in the outpost and he and Weir walked past the statis pod, Jack looked at it kind odd.

    Good and Jack and Sheppard are so cocky. They are what makes the episodes funny. Rodney is also funny how he is gettingstressed because he doesnt have the Ancient genes.

    Ah, at last!
    This was a most excellent first episode.

    Loved the cast, the Jack/Daniel interaction as the Atlantis team was preparing to leave, the whole look of the show.

    Hated that Sky only gave me 30 seconds to unwrap a new video tape! no ad break! That shrink wrap is hard work.

    I have seen Risinig last week. I think I liked it: Loved Jack, loved Daniel, liked the new people and the special effects. Don^t liked the Wraith (to much over the top for me} and the Ancient technology (to much and to futuristic gives the show almost a Star Trek feeling). I will watch it and hope that the show stays as enjoyable as it^s now. And that all the changes which are planned don^t hurt the show to much (I hope that the Pegasus galaxy is too far away for visits from Farscape actors or King Arthur...)
