Stargate Atlantis Season Premiere

Following up on the big cliffhanger from earlier this year, Atlantis is in space, lost, damaged and in danger of becoming a big old piece of space junk.

Unfortunately SG1 has recently finished it's run on TV and Amanda Tapping (Col. Samantha Carter) needs a new job and it looks like she is stepping in to replace Dr.Elizabeth Weir who has been injured and possible repaired by Replicator Technology. whew!

I really enjoyed the Dr. Weir character, and hope there is a decent resolution to her storyline and not another pointless death to get rid of a character. The episode is well paced, and the developing storyline is slight reminiscent of Star Trek:Voyager and their need to repair to survive. All the fun essentials are there, and love the humorous undertones to parts of the story to lighten things up (if possible) and McKay is still one of my favorites on the show (and as always, managed to throw in some Canadiana with his comment on " Cole's notes ", our version of Cliff's notes). Friday nights are fun again!
