    Default Who else knew that how the ep would play out?

    Well duh, it took 2 episodes to over the ship losing power then go to the sun and charge up. When they headed to the sun it seemed blatantly obvious that was going to happen - they had almost no power and the ship guides them to places where they can get what they need.

    Yes it was somewhat obvious from the onset. But I enjoyed the episode nevertheless.

    The same could be said for any TV show.


    SG1 ... O'neill is about to die.. Oh wait he doesn't... then some guy comes on a forum and says "OMG IT WAS SO OBVIOUS HE WASNT GIGNAG TO DIE GAGDDFG HDFH F"

    Atlantis ... Atlantis is about to be destroyed... but the TV show is called Stargate Atlantis and it is only episode 5 in a new season... then some guy comes on a forum and says "OMG IT wAZ SO OBIVUOS THAT ATNLANIT WOULDNT DIE!"

    Universe ... destiny is about to be ass raped... but isn't... because a group of 15 people on a rock doesn't sound like a fun TV show and the show just started... then some guy comes on a forum and says "Well duh, it took 2 episodes to over the ship losing power then go to the sun and charge up. When they headed to the sun it seemed blatantly obvious that was going to happen - they had almost no power and the ship guides them to places where they can get what they need."

    This is why I do not try and predict what would happen in the course of the show Though it was pretty obvious that was how the ep would be resolved, but yet it was so beautiful at how they pulled it off.

    No I meant once it headed towards the sun it was obvious that the NEXT episode would mean that it gets juiced by the sun, so from the BEGINNING of the episoe we saw how it would play out, and it didn't need to be a 2 parter I think.

    Knowing that someone's going to be OK is one thing - it's HOW it happens that needs to be a surprise and that wasn't the case here. And characters do die - look at the Doctor on SGA.

    Yeah I knew how it was going to play you as well. That is just the way it goes with shows such as these. This early in the show, nothing mind blowing and earth shattering is going to happen.

    Everyone saw this coming - Destiny was going to use the star to recharge. I don't think it cheapened the episode that much to know that in advance. Look at every James Bond movie ever made, they always put him in situations where it looks like he's going to die, but everyone knows he wont. People still watch, and still find entertainment in it, so I think this is the same situation.
    I can picture in my mind, a world without war, a world without hate.... and i can picture us attacking that world cause they'd never see it comming

    Considering light was not the last episode it was obvious how it would play out.

    At the end of Darkness. Was the show really going to change to a survival tale on a deserted planet?

    yes and its a bit surprising that the "geek" Eli didnt say hey we have just skimmed a gas giant which is one of the common ways in SF to refuel a starship - has the man never play'd in a Traveller game :-)

    I don't think anyone was surprised that Destiny survived (although, it woulda been a big shock if the ship woulda blown up in the star, followed by a "wha-wha" trombone sound and the words "Suck-it losers!" appearing on the screen instead of credits), but I think what got most of the people who I've talked to was the completely formulaic way it happened.

    For example, I missed it; when my best friend was telling me about it, my first question was "So, let me guess, in the last 15 seconds they realized that is was collecting solar material as fuel?"
    His response was "more like the last 10; you sure you didn't see it?"

    I figured that was what was going to happen; I just didnt know how it was going to collect the solar material. (my vote, Destiny 'eats the sun' or makes it go nova...just so they can have lights on the ship again and Eli can send kinos into the shower room again)
