Re: SG-A – Vegas (5x19) – (Discuss – Grade | SPOILERS!)

Did I just see John Shepard kick the bucket? WooHoo! Finally, since we saw him in SG-1 I get my wish.

Next week looks kickass.

Well, only about 10 minutes of show left. Is this a two parter? Seems they could do a few episodes using this setup.
It ties in with the final episode
Good! Thanks.



Wait, John and a Wraith in the desert? He doesn't need a gun, just a candy bar.

to clarify, it ties in, now you see why, but it is not a two parter

next week is only 1 hour, but IMO the finale really needs to be 2 hours

yep, he died in that reality

next week is only 1 hour though, IMO it needed to be 2 hours

the promo is misleading somewhat, which I am very happy about, usually they give away too much

^ This one could have been a two parter. Much too quick even for Stargate.

Anywho, looking forward to next week. Bittersweet with it being the last Atlantis discuss and grade thread.

I'm giving this episode 3 ZPMs just cause it was different, and a welcome change to the format. I really enjoyed it.

And Sheppard's death wish is finally fulfilled. As he's walking away from the scene, no less. That's just art right there.

This was good, but if you've watched the whole series, this was fantastic.

I am as well for the reasons you give and that the last 20 minutes really fed my fanwankery. I love time travel and AU stories.

WOW...that was probably the BEST episode of Atlantis EVER. The last 20 minutes went too fast and could have been stretched out into another hour. But WOW. That was good,,,

Good idea for an episode? Yes. For being the love-child of CSI, The Sopranos, and Stargate, it was a pretty entertaining hour of television.

But was it a good idea for the penultimate episode of the series? No.

I feel like this episode ventured into TATV territory -- it was an interesting episode that just happened to come along at the wrong time.

I hope there's a nice payoff next week.

If it's a good idea for an ep. what difference does it make when it airs in the season?

Of course, they only got the announcement of the cancellation just prior to this episode.

Because it's the penultimate episode of a series that most of us have watched with some semblance of regularity for the last five years. I should think that the second-to-last episode of the series is better spent dealing with the characters we know and love than with skewed versions of some of those characters who live off in a backwoods bizarro universe.

Don't get me wrong; I thought this was an entertaining episode. One of my favorites of the season. I just feel like, for being the episode that precedes the conclusion of the series, the time would've been better spent if it was with the characters, universe, and story we've known since the beginning of the series.
