    I'm digging the Genii. And if you step back to look at it, they are closer to being the good guys than SGA. In their interaction with the Genii, the SGA has proven themselves to be Bullies(Sheppard practically threatened the monk guy into letting them sleep over), Thieves(SGA stole the Genii's wraith decoder ring), and Cowards(Teyla running away and leaving her partner to die).

    Line of the night was when they were sitting in the Jumper going throughthe list of why the Genii don't like them and the yung guy says 'And they're pissed that Teyla killed one of their top guys'. Nice jab.

    So cold. I hate his guts. Oh, and he killed our two guys in the Gate Room. I really hate him. And he ordered that McKay be tortured. I really, really hate him.

    Did I mention I hate his guts?

    This was a great episode. Waiting for 3 months will be annoying though.

    Once again Atlantis is faced with competence issues.

    This is supposed to be the best and the brightest, but right now they're all seeming like a bunch of morons. No way it should have been that easy for the genai to take siege. And then the rest of the team is staying there during the storm because they might risk a kid or two getting hurt? Compared with the prospect of permanently losing their central base of operations, when their CO is captured by the enemy?

    These people really need to learn to prioritize.

    Oh, and now Shephard the quintessential 'kid on vacation' in the Delta Qua...I mean, the Pegasus Galaxy wants to give these militants some ships in order to save one life.

    I seriously cannot believe that Atlantis is being written by the same writing staff as SG1. SG1 has never had trouble prioritizing like Atlantis does, and every time the base has been taking over, the enemy at least had to work a whole lot harder to do it (What with duplicates and mind control and such, not just marching in with a team of seven or eight with a few guns). This incompetence is getting frustrating.

    The bullets the Genii have in their weapons might be armour piercing bullets

    Or they could have been a higher caliber than the armor was rated for.

    If Atlantis were exactly like SG-1 then it wouldn't be Atlantis, would it? I, for one, kinda like seeing the Atlantis team screw up, it proves they're human- something that occasionally gets forgotten with SG-1. The A-team DOES make mistakes, they AREN'T perfect, they can't walk on water like SG-1 can and they don't always resolve their issues in the best of ways.

    Bob, I can see that you're pretty angry about this, it's the second or third post with pretty much the same complaint that I've seen. But I'd like to point out that if you keep comparing Atlantis to SG-1 and if you keep expecting it to be the same, then yes, you ARE going to be frustrated and disappointed. Atlantis isn't SG-1. Instead of hating the differences, why don't you learn to accept them and see the opportunities those differences permit in terms of storylines and character development?

    I can think of instances where SG-1 has dropped the ball, too, but this is an Atlantis discussion thread and I'm in here to discuss Atlantis.

    If the Genii touch Weir they're going to learn a little pearl of wisdon that is pretty prevelant on Earth: Don't piss off the Americans, for they will hunt you down and make the rest of your life a very bad one. Seriously, Sheppard looked close to going ballistic at the end, not that I blame him.

    Oh, puh-lease! Can we possibly NOT make this about "Superior Americans" vs. the rest of the universe?

    I'm pulling for Rodney- the CANADIAN- doing something ridiculous to try and save Weir.

    But everything is about our superiority....I uh mean.....

    Nah. Rodney'll probably do something stupid like say, 'Well, you can't do anything without my command code, nah nah!'

    At the end I thought McKay looked like he was contemplating diving infront of the bullet but then I realised that if he divulged so much information from just a little cut that he wouldn't do somethin like that.

    Actually, I was thinking he might do the same thing. And I don't think it's unlikely. Rodney divulged info because he was trying to save himself. But if ANOTHER person's life is in danger, that's where Rodney truly shines. He'll go to great lengths to try and save one of his teammates, even if it means MORE pain for himself.

    I'm sorry you feel that you/your country is inferior to Americans/America. America's habit of slapping around people who've screwed with American citizens has gone back to the War of 1812 and the Barbary Pirates incident, which if you'll note was long before its status as a super-power. But you're absolutely right, this shouldn't be about any real or percieved American superiority, so please stop.

    Chiefchucky: I don't know, McKay's had a couple of times where his (small) brave side has come out. He might surprise us yet.

    Not to change the subject but how do you think they will get the last grounding station to disconnect?

    Maybe Shepard will manually knock it off or shoot at it?

    Oh and...not to change the subject...and no disrespect to Joe Flanagen...

    but don't you think Shepard rank a bit like a girl after he disconnected the second ground station?

    Not like an all out girl, but the thing he did with his left hand was kind of weird. He's never done it before..

    Subject change sounds good to me.

    Bringer, it's never safe to assume anything about anyone on these boards. Neither age, nor nationality, profession or political leanings. It's not cool.
