I hate two parters...
This was a good episode though.
It sucks that we have to wait months when you know the second part is already in the can and they're just sitting on it though.
I liked the tricky relations between the Genii Commander and Sheppard near the end. Can't wait for the second part.
Thor: The Asgard would never invent a weapon that propels small weights of iron and carbon alloys, by igniting a powder of potassium nitrate, charcoal and sulphur.
This episode was awesome!
SGA is awesome!
Awesome episode, I love it, cant wait for the second part.... just wow at the wait time :/
here goes my post buried under others.
Good episode from what I saw, about 30 min into it.
Those two men I think were the first to die since Sumner I think.

What do you think the chances are of the Jenai having people with the ancient gene? I'm betting that spicy little red head has it if anyone...
I'm looking forward to seeing Shepard off the guy from the Goonies.
I think Shepard was on to something though with the lightning rods...obviously they were there for a reason, perhaps they were already a fail safe incase the ZPM's failed during the storm?
It was very surreal seeing Bailey Malone as a bad guy. Good job by Davi, though.
Loved the interplay between McKay and Dr. Zelenka, he's almost as cool as McKay. Almost. Loved Rodney's frustration with Dr. Z's interruptions, too.
Very interesting plot developments all around and it's going to be a long few months waiting for part 2. *sigh* I'm not sure I buy Genii Chick going all sympathetic for the Atlanteans, though. She has more reason than anyone to hate them.
Poor Rodney. He put on a brave front and managed to accomplish some good, but he's still the weakest link. Although I can't say I'd have reacted any differently if someone had been cutting into my arm. Hewlett has a very expressive face. Love that.
Gotta say, I think I'm finally warming to Weir.
How come Beckett is the one making command decisions about whether or not to fly? He's not a pilot, is he?
First two Tau'Ri.Originally Posted by PYRO
As seen in episode 1 he has the ancient gene as well. He was the only one who could fly it as far as I know.Originally Posted by ShadowMaat
He has the gene, Ford doesn't. I guess that means he has a better chance of getting the ship to perform the way they want.
Have they actually said what branch Ford's in?
Anyway, this ep was pretty good. I hope Shep gives those Genii jerks what's coming to them.
The views of the city were stunning.
Hmm, good enough to make me forget what I was going to say about the story itself. Oh well!
Ford is in the United States Marine Corp.
*cough*thread needs to be sticky*cough*
City views were very nice, but the pull back with the storm clouds was unconvincing. The wavery blackness at the top of the screen seemed more like a problem with my TV set than part of the scene.
Got to see the Genii Underground again. Still love that. Still love the waterfall.
How come Dr. Zelenka didn't stay? He and Rodney worked closely on formulating the plan, and while Rodney is great (loved the Superman line) it might have been good to have some backup.

Very cool. McKay looked very scared during many of the scenes. Too bad we didn't see Halling this episode. I miss that dude.
And I bet you Weir haters both love and hate the cliffhanger we're left with!
Great ep! Wow! I am so happy my power didnt cut out! A lot of these Pegasas people are annoying as hell. I saw let them die! I cant wait until January! WOW! Gonna be so good!
*Bought the whole giant storm thing and loved the lightning rod solution McKay and Zelenka came up with. Those two are worth the price of admission. The hurricane looked just like the weather channel these days.
*Nice tie-in between the Manarans and the Genii. The capture of Atlantis by Kolya (a loose cannon if there ever was one) was very tense
*Love McKay clueing Shep in and Sheppard and Kolya's cat and mouse game at the end. It was nice to see Shep in action again.
*Teyla's end of the story was a little duller but a good way to keep them out of the picture for awhile. I assume Beckett was in charge of the jumper because he has the ancient gene and was piloting.
*Sheppard and Weir were both very good in this episode. Weir was brave, smart and I bought her as a commander standing up to Kolya
*Wonderful tension and pacing in this episode.
*Excellent effects. I'd missed seeing more of the city and the planet and it was nice to see all those sets used effectively in this episode.
And now for a three month wait!

I feel sorry for Rodney, being hurt. The Genii makes the wound worse by being down on it.
Cain't wait for the second half. I want to see Sheppard and the rest of team kick some major rear end.
I bet McCay wishes he had a few more of those personal shield generators around. He could have used it this episode...maybe Sheppard will find one, even though he won't need it since he's going up against a bunch of teeny-boppers led by some soldier of fortune wannabe.
I know they couldn't have planned this but seeing a fictional hurricane after all the real ones the last few weeks was odd. On that note however, did anyone else think "trailer park" when the Puddlejumper occupants decided to wait out the storm.
I love Rodney more than ever but that boy needs to work on his poker face.
