Stargate Atlantis #5.19 Vegas (episode review, sorta)  
Just watched SGA #5.19....

Wow, that was trippy...

Stargate meets CSI? And the Wraith dude with his punk music and dressing like a punk/goth joining a poker game with a couple of Sopranos actors at the table?  Whoa...

I wasn't paying much attention to the first few minutes 'cause I had a phone call, but I caught the shriveled guy who was Wraith food at the beginning... still not sure what was going on there.

I was a little confused as to what exactly was going on.  This was an alternate reality, wasn't it? How did Rodney know? He had knowledge of this, so I was assuming he was originally from our reality or one like it? Or had visited it?  I'm still scratching my head over that one.

Ah, Radek is all nice and tidy in this reality, and looking sharp in a suit.  And he and Rodney still dithering like a couple of science fair kids having a rivalry. *g*

Yay, Walter! :D

Ah, it's Todd the Poet. Heh.

Nice scene with Shep driving away to Johnny Cash's Solitary Man.  Although the little flashback scenes during that featuring Rodney alternating with Todd to the music make me think they're throwing a bone either to Shep/Rodney or Shep/Todd shippers.  Or both. *snarkety-snark*

Poor Shep.  What a way to go.  But looks like he may have saved the Pegasus galaxy there.

Can't believe next week is already the series finale. *sigh*  So Sam Carter is going to appear in it? Are there supposed to be any other SG-1 members showing up, or is it just her? Anyone know?

Current Mood: curiouscurious

I saw this episode a couple weeks ago because it'd been leaked. Watched it two times, and I still can't wrap my head around it. It was just too much like CSI, and I found myself distracted by some of the badness, which makes me sad since it's once of the last episodes. :(

I've also seen the finale already, and know what SG-1 characters are in it. If you want to know, I can tell you. :-)

Yeah, one of my friends started writing a fic about a week or so ago and said it was based on "Vegas". I didn't know what she was talking about, but now I know that it was leaked.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who got such a CSI vibe from it. I'm trying not to think much more about it... it's making my head hurt :/

I'd love to know who's in it. :) You can send me a PM if you don't want to spoil anyone over here.

I had a feeling it was going to be kind of bad after reading Joe M. gush about it non-stop when the script was approved by Sci-Fi. :/

Sent you a PM. :-)

Ah. Yeah, that says it all. :P

Got it, thanks! :) I'm looking forward to the last ep... hope it'll be decent at least.

I completely agree with you. It's weird finding someone who has said exactly what I've said without even knowing they'd said it! *reads that back to see if it makes sense* LOL!

I unlocked my entry so others can read it and post if they wish.

Thanks! LOL, I know what you're saying... I get that feeling sometimes and it seems so weird! Hee :D

Cool... I'm heading over there right now :)
