I just now saw that Lou Diamond Phillips is only a recurring character... interesting.

Yay, mention of Atlantis.

So they found the 9 symbol address in its Database. I wish we had heard of it before now though, would make it seem less sudden.

BSG and Lost are awesome. I'm all for making Stargate not so goofy.
Well the problem with this, as far as this episode goes, is that the writers are so unused to this new style that the dramatic moments seem very manufactured, like the yelling match that just happened between Lt. Hotpants and the Senator.

I watch so many bad movies I don't even notice stuff like that. I think the acting is fine.

Is it me, or are these sudden cuts to commercials annoying!

I was just going to ask if that was just me, I figured it might be a local glitch in the cable system.

They succeeded in making it feel cinematic though. I'll give them that. I can imagine watching this on the big screen with no problem. It seems bigger.

Is it just me, or is the hotheaded Sergeant guy just like Bates on Atlantis?

My only complaint so far is the jarringly non-linear method of telling the story. I'm sure there's a reason why they went this way, but I think I'd like it better if we saw the whole think unfold in order.

They used to fade away the Sci-Fi logo before a commercial break so you knew it was coming, but this abruptness is pissing me off.

I guess it's that Lost/BSG/Heroes way of doing things.
