    Thumbs up Re: Rising, Part 2

    Just adding my voice to the positive reviews! I wasn't planning to get so hooked so fast but the excellent special effects, the characters' interaction, the writing, the humor - what's not to like? Kudos to TPTB for getting this one *right*! The "Rising of Atlantis" may become one of the most memorable and exciting scenes in scifi - it was technically and aesthetically glorious, especially with the sun shining on the set.

    No need to say more right now as I would just be repeating what most of you have already been writing (although the Donna Karan gown was quite an original reply!) ... how great to have a second Stargate to watch on Friday nights

    One thought, though ... at the little banquet/reception at the end, I wondered how they were going to procure a constant supply of "fresh food"? Hope they like *fish*!

    I saw that ship too! I don't know, this pilot was probably written last fall when they were casting and maybe they decided to leave in the little shippy bits in the premiere but back off of anything overt for the remainder of the first season. I think they ought to just see how things go as they develop the characters.

    I'll join you in saying I really liked the Sheppard character - A LOT. He's somewhat like the Jack O'Neill of the early seasons of SG-1, but different enough that I think I'll probably stop comparing them after a few more episodes. I also didn't mind that the writers decided to not have him play "dumb" too much. I inwardly cheered when he came up with the 720 so quickly when McKay was rattling on about gate address permutations.

    I didn't interpret the interaction between John and Teyla as at all "shippy". She commented earlier that the Colonel "looked right through her" but that he didn't. She liked it that he accepted her as a person AND the leader of her people - without immediately assuming: 'these folks are less advanced than us, so how much help could they be - and by the way *I'm" the top dog around here' attitude that the Colonel displayed.

    Yes, I missed Chevron Guy too. Loved the lemon comment by McKay - Luke must be skulking around somewhere!

    Overall - two thumbs up for the series premiere. Great job all around!

    What can I say but,"Way Cool!"

    Great cast,good chemistry all around.I liked Ford & Sheppard's interaction a lot.I'm guessing the "Ancient's" devices are responding to Sheppard's "ancient -gene".
    Btw,the exchange at the end with Becett & McKay,where McKay is munching away I could have sworn he said [with alarm ] "Is this Orange?".A couple people have mentioned "Lemon"[per the attempted death-by-lemon-chicken-courtesy-of-Luke ]so maybe I didn't hear it right.Either way,it's citrus & so bad for his complexion,what with hives & swelling & all...
    I'm really fond of Beckett & hope they develope Ford's character further as well.
    That's about it for now.

    He asked "Is this lemon?" And that was Luke, he was there in spirit!

    This is something that bothers me. The Atlantis Team are in another galaxy and are the only ones who have guns, they will run out of ammo. Why did they not bring some Zats and Staff weapons? I know it's probably because the production staff want to seperate the two shows but still, it bothers me.

    Beats me.
    Some think they were afraid that the Ancients would not accept them if they had Goa'uld weapons, but I don't think so.

    The Ancients know the diffence between weapons and a symbiote.

    They should have brought staffs and zats.

    Sure the Zats might not work against the Wraith, seeing that they aren't evolved humans, but the Staffs would have worked.

    A zat with three blasts would be very handy to have.

    Not if it doesn't affect their electrical field. We don't really know how a Zat works, and neither how the Wraith works.

    It all goes along with keeping the shows seperate.

    See that? No zats and no fresh veggies Teyla will just have to take the whole team to some of the new worlds in their galazy to find ammo and take-out

    I recall them saying in one episode of SG-1 that Staff weapons are very inaccurate compared to Earth weapons (The Warrior, maybe?). O'neill and others use them just fine without the kind of training Teal'c has, though. Maybe they just opted for more accurate and familiar weapons, they did bring A LOT of supplies. I would think they have enough ammo to fight a small war.

    As far as Zats go...I don't know why they wouldn't bring them. I think the writers just decided "Well, the zats probably won't work against the Wraith. Rather than wasting 5 or so minutes explaining what zats are and finding out they don't work through trial and error, just skip them entirely". I don't think they would work against Wraith anyway, it wouldn't make much sense if they could just kill any Wraith in 2 shots from a zat. I'm pretty sure those Wraith they "killed" are coming back to life.

    There is probably some cache of weapons somewhere in Atlantis. Remember that SG-1 didn't procure Zats until the end of Season 1, if I remember correctly. (I'm still reviewing the eps in order as much as possible.)

    Besides, if they left behind Puddle Jumpers, there must be more Ancient Weapons Tech somewhere. The creators are not willing to play all their cards just yet.
    I am on a mission to acquire the SG-1 DVDs, since I wish to know all about this great universe...

    I have the original movie and Season 1 on DVD.

    Update: I also have Seasons 2 and 3 on DVD.

    I have seen the light! Please help me learn more!

    Maybe as they explore Atlantis they will find an Ancient Armory.

    There is little doubt that they will.

    Just jumping in to say that was a great first episode & I hope that the rest of the series continues to be that good.
    My early favorites are Sheppard and McKay, although I see promise in Ford. McKay had the best one liners - "using power, using power," "chevron 1 enganged," and the best - "is there lemon in this?"
