Gotta say- I wasn't expecting much, and I was still disappointed.
This would have been a weak episode for the middle of the season. For the series ender? You gotta be kidding me.
First- I don't hate ships. I love ships. I love it that our guys have started to get ahead of the technology curve. But the last show? Should have used the gate. I mean, ::points to title of show:: GATE, guys. That's what we fell in love with.
The Asgard- that was about as lame an exit for an ally as they've done yet. At least with the Tok'ra, they hinted at it in a bunch of episodes before they split off and disappeared.
There were various charactery moments that were good.
Vala: "Being stuck on this ship is worse than being stuck at the SGC. I-I-I tell you, the last time I was this bored, I took hostages!"
Daniel: "I was there."*
Vala "Are you hearing things?"
Teal'c: "I am trying not to."
Mitchell: "See what we need is, we need Superman to fly around the ship really, really fast."
Sam: "Oh, if you only knew how ridiculous that was."
Mitchell: "No, it only sounds ridiculous 'til you hear yourself say "I am trapped on a spaceship stuck in a time dilation field."
In the end? I'm with Mitchell: Points to Stargate- "That is how we're supposed to travel light years across the galaxy to other planets."
So- on to the movies.
I actually liked the Atlantis closer quite a lot better., even though I've never really gotten to love the Atlantis characters the way I do SG-1. And definitely, definitely, John/Atlantis is my OTP. *sighs*
