Cathartic Posted July 17, 2004 Report Share Posted July 17, 2004 Just curious what other Stargate fans thought of the premiere of Stargate: Atlantis which aired tonight. I personally enjoyed it. It will take a little time for me to get used to some new characters and such, but I'm sure that will happen, in time. Personally, my favorite facet of the Stargate milieu has always been the introduction of new advanced races and technology. The episodes which really got my imagination working the most were those that dealt with the Asgard - and even more so, those which gave hints about the Ancients. Hypothesizing about what could be out there, or what could be possible is quite fun. Of course, O'Neill's wisecracks rank up there as well... but we aren't likely to be hearing any of them in SG:A. The idea of a companion series which revolves entirely around the discovery of the last remnant of the Ancients' society and technology has me thrilled. In a nutshell, I think the premiere was fantastic in concept, good in execution, and poor in commercial frequency (if I never see another commercial for Arby's new chicken salad sandwich or that stupid online poker site, I'll be happy - that's why I prefer to watch episodes on DVD). Anyway, just curious what other folks thought... Rocked? Sucked? Does this show have promise? Or are we losing faith in the Stargate franchise?
