    it did and
    Spoiler:
    IMHO it was slow and a bit predictable-what happened was: (scroll down)



























    they used the space station to try to blow up the wraith ships. at the same time they find out that there is a wraith in atlantisand its not teyla giving info out.long story short,the station distroys 1 of the 3 hive ships then the other 2 blow it up with(scroll down further to find out) inside. also they capture the wraith and kill it.











    Peter Grodin dies on the ship.

    I have a 720p tv, and i have plugged my xbox into it and it gives me the option choose between 480p, 720p, 1080p, and 1080i display settings. I'm not really sure which one to choose on it, I know not to use the 480 setting, and obviously my tv only plays 720, but what if i set it to 1080? would the quality degrade? i cant rly notice a difference when i set it higher but maybe one who is more knowledgeable could tell me what im missing?

    I just finished watching it about 30 minutes ago. I was pleased with it though I was saddened at the loss of a valued member of the Atlantis Expedition!

    Spoiler:
    Though this isnt a spoiler, Its just a personal thought that I figured could use the tag anyways.
    Im hoping that he didnt really die, but at the last moment, someone like Oma (Omar?) helped him to ascend with the other ancients. I think that would make an interesting plot twist. But thats my opinion.

    I was disappointed -
    Spoiler:
    I wanted the ?%$ to die.(the guy thats all paranoid and stuff)


    We did learn some significant stuff though

    Spoiler:

    - The ancients were undoubtadly more advanced. Give me a few death stars, then we'll see some real goauld bustin

    - The wraith may not have the capacity to actually travel outside of pegasus. They APPEAR to be limited as indicated by Zalenka (the scientist guy) when he mentions he cant do enough damage to stop them getting to the hyper drives

    - That jerk off didnt die... GRRR
    - Grodin did.

    - They (the earth folks) finally pieced together that the ancient database was a more important thing to destroy.

    - The athosians are NOT happy about the plan to nuke atlantis - some kind of religious thing no doubt. They seem to think the ancients will come out of nowhere and save the city.. Yeah ok...



    No summery for you - come back 2 years.!

    Spoiler:

    Thats the whole point - the wraith cant (with their current technology) reach earth. That whole thing about the city not taking enough damage was in regards to the hyper drive systems.

    Spoiler:
    The city has hyperdrive engines that, if the wraith got a hold of, could use, or study until the could build their own and hyper-space it all the way to Earths doorstep.

    The weird thing about this whole issue is that
    Spoiler:
    up until this point the wraith are made out to be near equals to the ancients - yet they seem to lack technology which seems fundamental to space based civilizations (hyperdrives). We know they can go into hyperspace, im just wondering if the short hops between planets are for feeding or because their systems just cant go that far.... See the initial tests done on the x302s using naquadria as an example, or even the x304 without its buffer

    Wait, let me rephrase that: are spoiler tags necessary?

    || McKay: Do you know how much I hate certain death? ||
    || Beckett: I'm a doctor, not a bloody fighter-pilot! ||

    ... What's with the use of spoiler tags?

    You don't need them in this thread.

    Anyways... the episode.

    OH MY GOD! I LOVED IT!

    I'm skipping the big summary this week (I'm tired)

    This is basically it though: They find this satellite, Rodney fixes it, Wraith show up, they shoot one down, it stops working, Wraith blow up the satellite, Grodin dies (or so it seems DUM DUM DUMM!!), Zelenka is really cool, Bates gets beat up (think it's Teyla), find out they got a Wraith hanging around. He sets a trap up, takes down Sheppard and his team (not Teyla and Ford though because they show up and shoot the Wraith down). John names him Bob, Teyla tries to connect to him, Bob kind of mind melds and hurts Teyla, John starts shooting Bob, Bob is all arrogent (we will find you wherever you go, we will find Earth), and John kills him.

    Rodney got to wear a space suit (he looks so cute), and he got to scream like a woman when the gravity in the satellite came on, and um... they would be able to back up around 10% of the Ancient Database, and um... what else... oh, since the satellite blew up, Elizabeth gave them orders to prepare for evacuation.

    Early on, Zelenka kind of admited that Rodney was smarter than him, and Rodney was really happy...

    Umm... can't think of much else.

    Episode ROCKED! Poor Grodin...

    As Rodney put it, "One down, two to go."
