SciFriday’s Back

The SciFi Channel had their season openers of Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, and Battlestar Galactica tonight. Other than a burp in my Tivo which got corrected, I got to see all of them.

The new SG-1 has some potential. It’s nice to see some new faces, and I think that Ben Browder is going to be a good addition. I always liked him in Farscape. And I hate cliffhanger endings, regardless of whether they’re at the end of a season or at the end of an episode!

Atlantis picked up where the season 1 finale left off and has started wrapping up those plots well, but I’m still wondering what’s going to happen the first time the Wraith run into some Atlantis personnel. Are they going to come back?

Galactica’s just as great as it was last season. They’re really doing a good job of not pressing the magic reset button at the end of each episode. It’s refreshing to see a story arc thought of in seasons instead of episodes. Baltar’s losing it and the humans on Caprica are in a real mess. Tune in next week…
