This is my personal thoughts, opinions and musings place. I will also rant about things, especially politically-correct things that irritate me. And sci-fi. Did I mention sci-fi? There'll be lots of sci-fi stuff here. And movies, too. Mmmmm... Movies

Atlantis begins again

Well, of Stargate: Atlantis started yesterday. It was actually pretty good, as were the space battles, but more importantly, the stopped being so damn one-dimensional. Always before they were such , what with the hissing and the hip grinding and the glutony and the skimpy clothes(on the females, at least), and the sucking out of life from the various people stuck into walls aboard their hive ships. But now we find out they can quickly devise stratagems that can defeat Asgard technology, they understand space fighting, the need to protect their carriers, point defense via fighters, and formation assault on a fortified position.

Which, I suppose, only brings up more questions. Who, exactly, are they? They defeated the , but they had numbers if not technology on their side. But where did they learn to fight like that and who have they been practicing against? Nobody else in has space capability, so it can't just be training. They must be remembering their battles against the Ancients, being effectively immortal and all that. I certainly hope the show tries to explain some of it and that it'll be about more than just the Wraith or He-Who-Must-Not-Name-Things or the.

Here's hoping for an interesting season.

Season Two looks interesting, will have to see how it develops, but a good start none the less.

Rainbow Sun Francks now has the opportunity to show his parents that naming children after too much pot can lead to an horrible fate: evil vampires even exist in space and they will find people with groovy names!
