i know there's Lost, which was famous for its use of Flashbacks (and then flash forwards, then flash sideways) But would Atlantis and/or Universe have benefitted from using extensive Flashbacks? They've been used on occasion, in episodes that specifically called for them. But how about on a more regular basis? For Atlantis...i think it would have bolstered Lt. Ford's character, giving us a better picutre of him, and perhpas how he would be in some ways "superior" to Shepard in leading an SG team. With Universe, it would have been better than some of the goofy ways they have connected to Earth in real time. So what do you think?
