    That link now takes us to an MSN Sign In page.

    Back to topic at hand. I keep seeing Ben's and Claudia's Farscape characters getting in. There's the same kind of interaction.

    I don't really see Claudia's Farscape character in her SG-1 role, however w/ Ben i've noticed that they've included some of the "pop-culture" referrences that he used to always be spouting off in Farscape. Like that line he had a couple eps back where he compared some aliens to a "Raiders fan". I used to like it when he did it as Crighton, but that's because it was part of his character's personality in Farscape, i'm not sure if it's a good idea for SG-1 though. Mostly because he is supposed to be someone different now in a different universe. Overall I like his addition to the cast, but that's one thing I think they should keep a lid on maybe.

    I fear this is what happens when a series (or writers) have outlived their useful life. I remember x-files getting equally silly near its end days. I miss the old gang and its chemistry.

    OK, the Ori just got a more menicing without reveling too much. Last nights SG1 episode was the best one so far this season.

    I concur. This was the best episode( August 19, 2005). I was getting very disappointed up to this episode as you can tell by my last post.

    One thing that botheres me though is the Asgard. You would think that the Asgards would have some interest in the Ori seeing as how they could come in and challenge them as the techno geeks of the universe. I mean now that they aren't busy fighting the replicators where are they? We saw them on the Daedulus(?) in the season opener of Atlantis so we know we are still communicating with them.

    I actually though that the new energy source McKay found 2 weeks ago in SG:Atlantis might be some type of a cross-show "weapon" that would be used to fight the Ori, but alas it wasn't.

    Stargate SG1 Summer finally tonight. It is 2 hours long, so no Atlantis tonight.

    The second half of the season starts in January I believe. Sci-Fi has been doing this for the last season or two.

    They still need to ditch the Ori (or the writers, or both).

    As much as I have enjoyed this season so far (it was especially better when Claudia Black was there) I must say I was a bit "underwhelmed" by the "season finale". It seemed to me to nothing but two average regular episodes w/ only a slight connection between the two. I will say that I agree with you that the writers dropped the ball here. I'm sorry but a season finale is supposed to be a big deal w/ lots going on ending w/ a cliff-hanger at the end. If the best they had was Lou Gosset Jr's character becoming a Prior at the end.....well color me disappointed.

    Isn't this an artificial "season ending?" The true new season has begun in July for the past few years, then Sci Fi chops the season in 2 with the "second" season beginning in January. So, this would, indeed, be just 2 regular episodes strung together.

    Ok but still, if you're going to take 3 months off in the middle of a "season" you should still make the episode before your break a big deal and give people something to hang onto so they remember and/or care to come back and watch when you restart your season.

    Deadly plague wiping out the USA isn't a big deal? ;)

    Thats exactly what they were. Remember that a season is usually only 20 - 24 episodes. You obviously can't run original episodes year round for each show as that leaves more than half the year for repeats. SciFi just breaks the season in half for airing purposes, prefering to have two breaks in the fall and spring rather than a really long break from December - July.

    In December you'll be able to download sneak peaks of the new episodes though, as the UK will have caught up by then and be airing them about a week or so before we get them again here in the US.

    Well I guess the plague didn't leave too big of an impression on me, for whatever reason I guess i'm not buying into it as being a real threat. As for sci-fi's way of showing it's seasons, I haven't cared for it for years really. It seems I always have problems remembering when they start, restart and end. Which would lead to me missing episodes sometimes. I've been paying closer attension since they've been showing BG since I really want to make sure that I don't miss any episodes of that. If I ruled the TV universe (now there's a scary thought! :lol: ) every show would have seasons like "24" where they air every week from beginning to end, no breaks!
