just watched Reckoning 1 & 2.... WOW

I just watched the two parter Reckoning. Wow!!! Bleeping amazing episodes!! All that build-up with the replicators, system lords, anubis, baal, ascension storyline, ancients, jaffa... all clashing together.

Definitely my favorite two-parter of the series so far. Does season 9-10 and the Atlantis series get THIS good?? No spoilers please, first time viewer here.

Seasons 9 and 10 do not reach the same heights, but the next episode, "Threads," is one of my absolute favorites.

Re: just watched Reckoning 1 & 2.... WOW

I just saw Threads, another great episode. I was surprised to find that dude in the coffee shop was Anubis. I just had to re-watch the whole episode again with that in mind. So is that the end of Anubis or does he come back?

No, that's the end for both Oma and Anubis.

Unfortuntely Reckoning 1 & 2 and Threads is the climax of how good SG-1 got. From here, it only gets worse.

I can't agree with that there's plenty of good stories left.

Huh? Relevant to the discussion how?

Depends on how you look at it. While I preferred the earlier seasons, seasons 9 and 10 were basically a different show altogether. If it was given more time, I suspect they could have had an epic finale to that story arc the way the Replicator/Gould arc ended.

Seasons nine and ten may not have reached the heights of Reckoning, or The Lost City. But I still enjoyed the final two seasons very much.

Yep. Those three episodes were absolutely fantastic. I remember when I first watched them. I wish the show had ended with Threads because it was as good a finale as we could get. Instead it got dragged out more and more and more.

The Reckoning two parter is indeed the finest couple of hours SG-1 has done. Hell, it may even be the finest in the entire Stargate franchise.

Re: just watched Reckoning 1 & 2.... WOW

I'll probably enjoy seasons 9 and 10 too *hopefully*. But man, Reckoning was definitely the TOPS. I never had this much excitement watching a sci-fi tv show. I also want to add that the scenes with Baal and Anubis were awesome. They are definitely the coolest System Lords ever to appear in the series!

I just watched the 3-parter intro to season 9. It does seem like a very different show. Different cast, different enemies, and now with a religious fundamentalism theme to it. Well I hope i'll enjoy the rest couple of seasons.

Which was probably a good decision, instead of dragging out the Anubis arc even further. I know for a time, they were considering rebranding the show as Stargate Command for season 9, but decided against it.

Yeah, it may have been a good idea to do that with a completely new team. It could've been interesting.
