Yes, that took me by surprise as well. All in all it was a good ep. I think it was better than SG-1.

I like McKays real name biggrin.gif

LEATHER JACKETS FOR EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!

We get 3 ships and they're gone... we get a brand new ZPM and we lost it. That's terrible. Now we know they have to find another powersource somewhere, because the city is defensless. No shield, no chair, no cloak.

Although Ronan wasn't in the ep much, he seemed to be a lot more personable when they did show him. I couldn't find a good reason for Sam to be in this ep. She was kinda just there so that we knew it was a cross over.

All and all, I'm not sure whether or not I liked this ep. I will have to watch it again.

This was a pretty good episode. Better than SG-1 tonight by far. Great humor moments, especially "Meredith." ZPM depletion was pretty interesting, but:

I did enjoy the episode, though ?Rod? creeped me out. I kept expecting him to be working for the Wraith or Ori or something equally evil. Is it strange that I think overly nice = evil? Also not entirely sure that depleting the ZPM wasn?t what Rod had in mind all along. But that might be the overly nice thing coming into play again.

As for the science of the episode, what about the cascading effect? If people from an alternate universe can?t inhabit the same dimension where their counterpart in this dimension is alive, then wouldn?t Rod be feeling that, since Rodney is clearly still alive?

Not entirely sure I buy the whole Sheppard as Mensa?too weird.

I really liked Rodney?s (Meredith, lol, too damn funny!:rotflmao: ) interaction with his sister. It added a dimension to him that?s been shown before, such as the bumbling-but-brilliant-once-I make-a-mistake-I ignore-it. And then 4 years pass and my niece is having her first ballet recital. It was a touching reunion.

I couldn?t hear the very end, what did Sheppard say about Teyla having the hots for someone? Or did I miss understand completely?

I assumed that the cascade effect was going to be the reason that Rod couldn't stay.

Our Sheppard passed the MENSA exam, he just never joined up.

Sheppard said that Teyla had a crush one of the new marines.

Did he? I must've missed that part. But if it was in S1, I watched but didn't pay too much attention, so it probably skipped by me.

I don't remember exactly what ep, but Shep knew the answer to a question and Rodney asked how he knew the answer and he said it was on the MENSA exam. Rodney told him about a chapter on Atlantis... Rod's comments were alluding to that conversation in the previous ep.

In other points Shepard has mentioned he could have been in if he wanted. In The Brotherhood all that was really revealed was that Shepard took the test. In a later episode he said "Could have been MENSA" which implied he passed the test rather than simply took it.

"Your name is Meredith?"

laugh.gif

It was a pretty good episode. As usual, I have trouble keeping up with the techno-babble, especially when it's coming from 2 mckays. I really like Rodney's sister, hopefully we'll see her again. I love how she gets under his skin...very sisterly of her. I have an older brother as well, so I can relate.

I never thought I would see Rodney...er...Meredith whistling.gif cry. It was kind of touching. I dunno, I liked the alternate McKay, but it was kind of weird. I was always expecting him to do something...um...our-mckay-ish. biggrin.gif But no...it was refreshing, but I still like our mckay better for some reason.

Hey, is this the first time we've seen the whole...lunchroom (whatever it's name is)? I've just never seen that much of it in one shot.

SO MUCH LOVE cloud9.gif I am so glad that both episodes tonight rooooocked!! (sorry, they just ended so you can tell I'm still rather enthusiastic) Lately, I've been rather bummed over both SG-1 and Atlantis episodes, but this friday was a good end to a very trying week (college just started sick.gif )

As soon as I saw the first spoilers for this episode I couldn't wait for it. Dude, two Mckays, Kate Hewlett, and Radek, what else could you possibly want? 1.gif

I really, really, can't believe I don't remember that part! When did he cry!? Was it accually crying or just tearing up? *smacks head* how did I miss that?!

Lol, I thought that too, at times. "OMG, he's too nice, he's working for the Genii!!" laugh.gif His smile got really creepy as the episode went on.



I thought the ending was just TOO SWEET happy.gif awwwww, team bonding! They do love Mckay! I'm a sucker for that kind of stuff, even Ronon joined in. Also, I didn't see the depletion of the ZPM, that suprised me. What are they going to do for power now? OMG my poor babies! Stuck in another galaxy with only the Daedalus, at the mercy of evil, life-sucking vampires!



P.S. OMGSQUEE!!!111ONEONE!!ELEVEN!!!11! to the name Meredith. Rock on! XP

They have to travel between the galaxies anyways, in order to complete the galactic bridge (of stargates).

w00t.gif that was really his sister?!?! That's friggin' awesome! No wonder the acting was done so well whistling.gif

um it was when he was making up with his sister near the end, probably right before he took her back to earth...I guess, I don't really remember all that well. He just teared up, he didn't cry, but in my book, that's crying.

No, really? Was that actress his sister? I thought in that scene where they were walking down a corridor going at each other, that they could've been in real life because their interaction as brother and sister was so believable!
