SciFi Friday Thoughts

I'm splitting this in two, starting with SciFi Friday:

Stargate SG-1: Ba'al is back and creating trouble, this time with what seems like a army of clones to hide his appearance on Earth. Now SG-1 has the Ori, Ba'al and the whereabouts of Vala to worry about.

Stargate Atlantis: Is it just me or is this series starting to feel like a bunch of disjointed away missions that have no cohesion outside of Wraiths being here and there? Obviously the next episode (in two weeks) sees Shepard feel the effects of the retro virus and obviously the correct antidote will be ready to save him. You lose Shepard and you lose any subtle jokes and that would destroy this show. McKay can't hold the whole show on his own.

Battlestar Galactica: Seems to be back on the right track. I am a bit surprised by Adama's 180 on the President and her ideas, but I guess he feels they need to coexist to keep everyone happy. Either that or Adama has bigger plans. Next episode looks interesting as a reporter (Lucy Lawless in the role) is allowed to follow a day in the life of Galactica and it looks like the Colonel gets a little physical with one of the press people. Oh yes, the idea that Gaius doesn't have a chip in his brain is intriguing. We've seen Number 6 in person a few episodes ago, we'll have to see what happens here.
