SciFi Friday: SGA 5.20 “Enemy at the Gate”

Sunday, January 11th, 2009

Stargate Atlantis has come to an end, after five seasons of laughter, eye-rolling, and popcorn throwing. In this final episode, several moments of note occurred: 1. Apparently, someone finally got around to telling Joe Flanigan that Sheppard is the *leader* of Atlantis. He stood up straight, came up with plans all on his own, and […]

SGA 5.19 “Vegas”

Monday, January 5th, 2009

Okay, I’ve *definitely* read this fic. [Fic: FOUND! Hindsight, by rageprufrock] Favorite Line: “I don’t know where you’re from, but out here anything’s possible.” A comparison of SG1 and SGA: In SG1, they planned a whole season-long conclusion to their story arcs, and *still* had to make two movies to tie up all the loose […]

SciFi Friday: SGA 5.18 “Identity”

Saturday, January 3rd, 2009

Yeah, I messed up my numbering again. But *this time* I’m confident that this is ep 5.18. Note to FanFiccers: Zelenka wears his watch on his left wrist, and a *bracelet* on his right! ::glee:: Note to the ladies: If you’re wearing low-rise pants, don’t stick a gun in your waistband. Note to set decorators: […]

SciFi Friday: SGA 5.18 Infection

Monday, December 8th, 2008

Thoughts From the Episode: 1. I could totally see this as an OT4 ep (or Ronon/anyone). Ronon totally has the jealous boyfriend attitude towards Todd — he’s all, “Don’t mess with my peeps, Todd; I don’t care about you.” 2. Jennifer really shouldn’t be in charge of medical, should she? In her defense, she did […]

SciFi Friday: SGA 5.17 Brain Storm

Sunday, December 7th, 2008

aka No, Jennifer, it’s not a date. Best Quotes: “Because I’ll sign this, if he’s brought dinosaurs back to life.” “I just remembered I don’t really like these people.” “I have been listening to you, and that’s what led me to believe you’re a moron!” “Rodney, does it really matter?” “Yes. Yes, it does.” Things […]

NaNoWriMo — day 24

Monday, November 24th, 2008

I miss fanfic. And Stargate. I missed last week’s episode (sadly, not because I was building up my wordcount, but because I was sleeping the sleep of the sleepy). According to cesperanza’s review, I didn’t miss much, and it would probably be more rewarding to just go read Ordinary Life, co-written by shalott and speranza, […]

SciFi Friday: SGA 5.15

Monday, November 17th, 2008

Once again, I was greatly amused (and educated!) by cesperanza’s lj review and comments. I totally did not recognize Dr. Mary Sue as Megan from The Sentinel! My biggest reaction to this episode is to think that really, the writers aren’t even *trying* anymore. It was pretty blindingly obvious from the start that they were […]

SciFi Friday – SGA 5×14

Monday, November 10th, 2008

Right — episode review. I did actually *watch* the episode last Friday when it aired, I’ve just been completely distracted overwhelmed zombified by nanowrimo. For a truly excellent review (with pictures!) check out speranza’s review on lj, which is, in fact, truly excellent. For my own rather sub-par effort, see below: SGA 5×14 (title omitted […]

SGA 5.13 “Inquisition”

Saturday, October 25th, 2008

aka: I’VE READ THIS FIC!!! Summary: Failed to live up to its potential, since in the fic, John and Rodney had sex, and Atlantis broke away from Earth. Worst Part of the Episode: The show has made an effort to portray John as someone who, despite his flaws, cares deeply about the people of the […]

SciFi Friday: SGA 5.12 “Outsiders”

Friday, October 24th, 2008

aka “It’s not a Volkswagon, Carson!” (Yes, a week late — I missed it last Friday, and only caught up now.) Summary: John’s team visits Carson; villagers forget they’re supposed to be scared of the Wraith; day and night get confused. Wraith kidnap John’s boyfriend; John & Rodney heart2heart over the radios. Wraith+trap+shooting+super!smart!Rodney= everyone back […]
