    Default ZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzz....

    it's 9:47 eastern time... still 10 minutes left... but Vegas is a very large reason why i am GLAD that Atlantis has been cancelled...

    boring, dull, no sense that its a "Stargate" episode, let alone a Stargate show... and since its not "our" reality i find no interest in how it turns out...
    Colonel Jack O'Neill: So what's your impression of Alar?
    Teal'c: That he is concealing something.
    Colonel Jack O'Neill: Like what?
    Teal'c: I am unsure. He is concealing it.

    Shame you don't want to know how it ends since the end leads into the finale.

    I almost fell asleep when I watched the leaked episode... It's really bad. Only the Sheppard fangirls will "like" it.

    I can see that people will either love it or hate it, it sure was different!
    But 180 degree change of opinion here,
    This episode was probably the best SGA ep I have ever seen. From the music, to the mood, to the acting, it was mesmerizing, I couldn't tear my eyes away.
    It was heartbreaking, brilliant and I sure as heck wish they would have spun this off as a series instead of 90210!
    I honestly have no words to describe how much I liked it, and (since I watched it a week ago, bad me) how it left me emotional for days after viewing.
    See, everbody's tastes are different!!!

    Folks didn't like it, really? I thought it was very cool! Great production values, from editing to music to location, and a very tragic alternate Sheppard. The last scene has completely haunted me since I saw it (early, I admit). I loved the alternate Rodney and Zelenka, too. (A professional, confident but still nerdy Rodney who accidentally opened a rift, so it wasn't Rod, and he didn't know "our" Sheppard as I've seen some fans say.)

    From what I can tell, JF did a lot of the stunts too, from jumping down the stairs to leaping over the car at the end. I'd love to hear more about that.

    I can't believe the actor who played the Wriath was Khalek in Prototype. Wow!

    Anyway I enjoyed this departure much more than the last 2 eps, and more than a bunch of S5 eps. I give them kudos for trying something different 5 yrs in.

    BTW we have our transcript of Vegas up here.

    Fantastic episode! I wish that the other John Sheppard would have survived though. At least he died knowing that he just saved the entire world.

    It was definatly different then the average Stargate episode. I'm just not sure it was the right kind of different. Felt like they were trying too hard to emmulate CSI. I didn't find it even remotely interesting until McKay appeared in the episode.

    Oh now come on! That is not very positive. Half glass full!

    I only liked the Wraith and Marilyn and David Hewlett in a suit and doing his best not to be Vergil from Cypher (but thankfully failing! Grrll).

    The rest? CSI still has much better scripts.

    Actually I posted my review in the other thread and I can't be bothered re-posting it here.

    Sad way to start the end to a finale. Sad as in attrocias.

    Word to all of that! I'm glad I'm not the only one.

    lol

    if you're gonna spoof csi, at least do it 'right'

    the driving rock music was annoying to the extreme, the wraith knowing how to apply hollywood quality makeup? not likely.

    rodney was annoying to the extreme - as per usual.

    it was just bad. cheesily bad.

    it was like it was a 'see mr glassner we can do your csi' flavored with a couple snarks at the fans and reminded me of a few too many 'low budget grungy shootemups' movies from the 80's

    Yeah and that is original how? I mean really Sheppard deserved to die in this one so maybe that was original.

    Talk about a waste of space human. Oh look at me! I got peeps killed so lets not get therapy and help from others lets just brood and be a screw up for the rest of my life.

    Jeez, he makes. me. sick!

    Wow, just when you thought Stargate could not get anymore complexed or dynamic it just did. The episode was brilliant. It showed some amazing writing and I loved the twists and turns in the episode. Sheppard was awesome in this episode and I liked how they made him a detective with a really dark background, only to come out as a hero like the Sheppard in the real reality.

    The most dramatic part was "Todd" when he says to him "You have a Destiny, John Sheppard" Nearly gave me chills.

    The Finale looks awesome!!

    Default Rodney McKay is hot in civilain suit!

    I loved it when he owned John in their alternate reality.!

    Why not they have a new series : "Stargate CSI: Vegas"?

    I like to see Drs. Keller, Zelenka, and Beckett work in lab team as Sam Carter, Ronon and Evan would be detectives.
