New Stargate episodes

Finally, new episodes of Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis. Last week was the first new episodes for season ten of SG-1 and Atlantis, season three. I'm still mourning the loss of Colonel - oops, Major General O'Neill (two L's), but last seasons final few episodes gave me hope as the shows were full cast member episodes and not just the Daniel and Vala show.

So, last week's premier for SG-1 was "okay" as far as I was concerned. Certainly no bells or whistles or fabulous insights. It tied up a lot of issues from the prior season but there were so many convience factors in play. The whole show is sci-fi/fantasy after all, so I can't complain about suspending realistic believability tying up the ends (please). I mean, Daniel just happened to activate the rings in time, Teal'c just happened to be in the right place at the right time, Mitchell just happened to put the marker on Bra'tac so he was ringed in along with them, an Sam just happened to have all the factors exactly as they should be to be rescued. Ok, Ok. But I am a little freaked by the Vala's child being Ori, but she sure is Vala's kid. Shades of the Harsis child of the Goauld several seasons ago.

Tonight's episode, Morpheus, looks promising, as do several others planned for the season. I am gleefully anticipating some season ten episodes; the 200th episode and the return of Jack AND the episode two weeks from now, Insiders, with Ba'al (my favorite badguy).

Laptop battery is almost gone and SG-1 is on right now!
