10-years of television in just under two months. Wow!

Starting with the Season 7 two-part finale, "Lost City" forward - I really enjoyed Stargate SG-1. Its a shame I had to suffer through seven full seasons to get there. But I discovered which camp I belonged to. The Seasons 8-10 fan club. I thought Bill Browder was a great replacement for Richard Dean Anderson (and didn't even miss him), I loved what Claudia Black brought to the team, and I discovered that Morena Baccarin was more than just a pretty face.

I also figured out why most of you hate Rodney McKay, as he is overtly annoying in SG-1. I also no longer despise Daniel Jackson, though I'm curious why he's such a dork when he guest stars on Atlantis. In fact, it was the Tenth Season episode "The Pegasus Project" in which the entire SG-1 team travel to Atlantis (God but I love the Atlantian theme Goldsmith pulls out everytime its onscreen) that made catttitude and I see how petty and insignificant their mission seemed in comparison.

Regardless, we're ready to watch Atlantis again. This time, maybe I won't get ill every time they go back to Stargate Command now that I understand it better.

Does anyone closer than celtmanx have Stargate: Continuum I can borrow? Someone from work reading this perhaps? mr_dowg maybe?

Okay - off to watch The Ark of Truth now!

8 to 10 were okay, but Cam Mitchel always reminded me way too much of John Crichton. Claudia Black, however, was wonderful as Vala

enjoy. i liked the early eps the best but a lot of people prefered the later ones. honestly, it's been so long i can't remember why that was the case, but it was the first show that got me involved in fandom

Did I? While not unprecedented it certainly would be unusual. Holiday weekend here stateside. catttitude and I have been cleaning out the garage. Have I mentioned lately how much I hate manual labor?

Season 8 has my favorite episode - Threads. I felt the show really reached it's prime after season 7. Took a little while. :D

My wife figured that one out way before I did.
