    I liked much of the episode, but some of the scenes needed more depth, especially the scene with Greer and Chloe and with the character deaths. I give it an 8.

    After some thoughts I gave 9. Yes, it was slow, but packed with character development for build-up for midseason finale and next half of the season. Greer was gold, TJ emotions was raw and pure, it was nice to see Yong sane again. And they aren't afraid to joke about each other anymore. Also Yong and Eli "Clark and Churchill" exchange was nice

    It also has a very good mystery. It rises more questions about obelisk planet aliens. What they want from us? In fact, I feel like Yong - frightened. We are ants for them. And they seems to be very happy to mess with us.

    Agreed, so I voted 5 on Visitation.

    I've got to say I'm personally really not into this "mystery super powerful aliens (or god, interpretation seems variable) may or may not be screwing with us" plotline. Sadly, the Park/Greer scene on the observation deck did nothing for the female character, again. "You're being too deep again"?! And I was starting to like Park... way to bring her back down to bedwarmer levels.

    Plus aspects: Greer/Chloe, Greer/Scott and Wray/Young scenes (although we've only seen them work together for a few episodes and I really wish they started with that way earlier).

    It's funny, I read that in completely the opposite way. He was coming over all military-experienced-dude and she's like, "Yeah, don't talk. That's not what you're here for, toy boy!" She's the smart one, he's the bedwarmer in my version of events

    It amazes me how much I can think of specifics of the show, ie. the cgi or the acting that I analyse and rate. I know it's fake, yet every time I watch an episode, I feel like I'm there. I felt like I was there in this episode too, I give it an 8.5 out of 10, mainly for the editing and acting. There was a decent amount of progress and it did create more questions than it answered, but there were some good lines in the show that are going to be used to build up tension for an amazing season finale. I can feel it already. Obviously this wasn't one of the best episodes, but it's far from boring. I liked that scene between Scott and Greer.

    I would give it 1 -- easily the worst episode so far.
    Plot: 0
    Action: 0
    Character development: 0
    SciFi content: 0
    Stargate theme fit: 0
    Drama: 1

    All it did was to kill off a bunch of secondary characters who have been written off the show for a while anyways.

    It beats me why people think the uptick in ratings had anything to do with this show. People tuned in before they knew what they are going to see. The rating increase is the result of the previous week's great malice episode. I predict a significant drop for next week as a consequence of this bad episode.

    OK, this is something we can argue about... BTW, do you even know what sci-fi is?

    I gave it a 6. It resolved the ' Faith ' storyline, but raised too many questions than answers- something I didn't like from Lost as well.

    I want to know how their is no plot. Crew members returning from a planet in another galaxy and dying seems like a story.

    And I thought TJ and her baby being resolved ( sort of ), and the Greer <-> Chloe and Greer <-> Scott scenes were some nice bits character development. Greer had quite a few good moments this episode in fact.

    After the last 3 episodes, which were all great, I already anticipated this episode to be less interesting, especially because I knew it was about the Faith people. I was pleasantly suprised to say the least. Actually the "I'm already dead" stuff gave me a feeling like the Sixth sense ^^

    I give it a 1

    And it gets a one because the episode was just to give back Destiny a shuttle.

    This screams for a "no shuttles for destiny" - campaign

    Acting performances, aesthetics, plot and writing do not matter at all though? Just because this episode served ( a slightly obvious ) purpose in the greater scheme of things ( getting a shuttle ) it deserves a 1? I won't try to convince you otherwise as it's your vote, I just find that to be a bit... narrowminded.

    I gave it an 8. I had expected less after the last 3 episodes and when we knew it was about the Faith people, but I was really pleasantly suprised. I liked the story and found their death on the planet and on destiny to have quite dramatic and macarbe qualities. I dig that stuff.

    Gave it a 7. Glad to see those stupid people who stayed behind got what they deserved.

    If i could vote i would give it a low rating, this episode was too slow and too much soap. I fell asleep twice watching and had to replay, nothing interesting happened. If it was just a question of getting a shuttle again, i could think of many other (more exciting) ways of getting one.

    That should be a pre-requisite for posting in a Stargate forum. I don't think it is worth your time to pursue it any further. It'll only kill your brain cells.

    I gave it a five. I never got really excited with the episode. I would have been much more pleased if the shuttle had reverted to its previous state (thus requiring repairs and being out of commission for a few episodes). The Ron and Chloe stuff was pretty good. Hopefully the closure Chloe was going for with the goodbyes means they are going to speed that plotline up some.

    I do however reserve the right to reduce this episode to a zero if the Faith planet people return yet again is somesort of fashion other than flashbacks.

    I voted a 6. It wasn't that bad an episode but I got a filler feeling + cheasy way to introduce a shuttle. Basically the writers should get on with progressing the main storyline and what's happening on screen should reflect that.

    Not a good idea to do an episode like this after a string of truly great episodes. Silly, silly, silly...
    I'm an average viewer. As plain as they come. People make TV shows based on my demographic.
