    How did this escape my radar?, i have seen no promos on sky one for it, and sky just out a little ad on now to say it starts on 19th Oct (next week), but it has already started now on sky one, i dont understand. I nearly missed it.

    Its Atlantis series 2 that starts on the 19th - and the start SG1 has been advertised on vertually every ad break for the last two weeks.

    Really, ive must off been asleep, not seen any advertsing!, weird. Maybe ive not seen skyone live lately, The 4400, and Hex both on my Sky+ box, and still to watch.


    So after this show on tonight, before each ad break, why it did the writing on the startgate say, 'new series on 19th?', was that the Atlantis Stargate?.


    Anyway 'Avalon' part one, tonight was good. Nearly missed it. Luckly i got bored with The Property ladder on 4. :clap:

    The original advert was the stargate showing SG1 new series starting today - now it shows Atlantis starting on 19th - was good though (although im just waiting for Scorpius to arrive and it will be a comple farscape reunion)

    Ben Bowder does make quite a good replacement for O'neil (although i only have one episode to go on so far) with some good humor, and Claudia Black :devil: MMmrrrroowww

    That trend continues up to episode 10 (which is as far as has been shown in the US) - only one poor-ish episode.

    And Claudia still sends me into orbit, and it's nice that her interplay (as it were) is with Daniel Jackson, rather than Ben Browder's character.

    Maybe it's just me looking at the other replies, but I found that first episode total crap. They spent about 40 minutes before anything actually happened, and what was the point of the flashback sequences, I must have switched off mentally and missed the great thing he was supposed to have done. Can someone enlighten me?

    Didn't like the way the new character just appeared, could have done with some transitition between new and old. Plus really missing Jack O'Neill, Ben Browder's character seems to have the charisma of a nat. His humour just didn't work at all the way Jacks did. Liked Claudia's character though.

    Can someone who has seen more episodes of this series tell me if it gets any better or I might quit now. Does Jack make many appearances throughout the season? Also how many episodes is Sam out for?

    From first impressions this may well be the last series. I am a huge fan of Stargate and have all the DVD sets so I was really hoping for something better.

    Looking forward to Atlantis though.

    I think i read somewhere that Jack makes apperances in the first three episodes - to "ensure a smooth transfer of power" and from the opening titles it looks like Sam rejoins the team (as she is pictured going through the gate with all the others)

    Whilst I'm in the moaning mood, don't the new credits look crap. Reminded me of that funny episode they did with the fake Stargate TV show, can't remember the name.

    Stick with it, I know the first few eps are bad but considering the character turn over I doubt they could have done any better unless it was a totally new spin off.

    Beachhead (should be ep6) is a cracker and leads into the main arc although there are bits and bobs to be picked up in the first batch of eps IF you can tolerate them.

    Have faith that SG1 will return to almost it's best:)

    SciFi wanted more ad time so they cut the credits which allowed them to keep the time alloted to actually telling the story.
    Surprised that the syndicated credits were not being used (Seen the Atlantis full length credits but not the SG1 ones but there should be some).

    In the first ep, Browder's char takes out a major Go'auld ship, he crashes and is almost killed, and O'Neil pronmises him he can have whatever he likes if/when he recovers...so he chooses a posting to the SGC, I presume.

    Having watched (and owning) all 8 series, IMO the show needed an infusion of fresh blood. Jack had exhausted most of his possible storylines for someone who was supposed to be a general, and it was clear that Richard Anderson did not really want to have much of a part in this series...indeed for a while there was a doubt whether there would be a series 9 at all.

    So stick with it matey, I enjoyed all but one of the eps that I have seen.

    Unfortunately, Atlantis is not something that has ever engaged me at all, mainly because there is not one of the characters I ever feel like rooting for.

    Thanks for your comments. I will stick with it and hope it does get better.

    As for Atlantis, I like it but also don't really have any characters I root for. Maybe it's the problem of too many 'regular' characters instead of just a few core ones and the rest in the background.

    Hi guys and gals i just asked this question in the Baragin Stargate thread but i don't think it will hurt to ask here as well :)

    What are the shows like ? i only ask as i have never seen them :eek:.

    I am gettin more and more into TV box sets and i am always looking for somthing else that might tickel my fancy.

    Just wanting to know what your take on the show is like, i know you must be fans but what is the general quality of the show, good acting etc :)

    Thanks :)

    Watched it last night and, well, lets hope like other threads have said it gets better, because for a series I couldn't once miss, it's turned into pooh.

    Unless things improve I think SG-1's days are numbered just like Atlantis already is for me.

    Last season was a bit poor, they just seem to be running out of ideas.

    I love Stargate, and actually like Stargate Atlantis as well :), but from what people are saying about the current series, it may not be up to scratch :(

    Anyway, I guess I'll find out tonight as I've got it set to record :).

    SWMBO hates anything sci fi, but even she knows not to get in my way of anything stargate related :D

    The first seson of SG1 took a while to find its feet. Seasons 2,3,4,5 are alll very good. season 6 and seven start to suffer a bit with Richard dean Anderson wanting less and less to do so not in the show as much. season 9, to me was fairly interesting and at least RDA seemed to be in every episode even if it was not for long. Seaon 9 is almost like a differnt show, as if they are trying to reinvent the series.
    Atlantis is pretty good, but is not a show I will be collecting in box set form as I have been with SG1
