A few years ago, I wrote an article entitled ‘Why Stargate Universe Is Destined To Flop‘. I was right, it did. But not for the reasons I predicted. Stargate Universe was actually a pretty decent show. I’d go so far to […]
Topless Robot have uploaded their 7 Great Morally Dubious Characters of Sci-Fi TV. Quite how they can put Nerus from SG-1, and Todd from Atlantis in ahead of Robert Carlyle’s Nicholas Rush from Stargate: Universe is beyond me. Â And where […]
Stargate: Universe show-runner Brad Wright has revealed that the dark atmosphere of the show’s first season was only the beginning: the show is set to get darker next year. "When you try to adopt a more realistic tone, where frankly […]
Stargate actor Robert Picardo recently announced that the Stargate Atlantis finale – ‘Enemy at the Gate ‘ was a “well crafted” piece of television. It’s not. “Enemy at the Gate” is by no means Atlantis’ worst hour – not even […]

Absolutely, utterly fantastic.
This is, quite probably, my favourite episode Atlantis to date. It is, for me, Enterprise’s ‘Cogenitor’, or SG-1’s ‘Abyss’: the episode that rises above the average or mediocre content surrounding it, and elevates itself into not only a good episode, but simply one of the strongest.
Decent, yet confusing.
The absence of Tori Higginson (Elizabeth Weir) certainly screwed over the Replicator story line they had set up for her. “Ghost in the Machine” is a valiant attempt to continue that story without her. And, for the most part, it does a good job.
Michelle Morgan, who plays the consciousness of Weir in Fran’s body, does a reasonably good job of imitating the mannerisms and vocal expressions that Higginson brought to Weir’s character. Her performance is strong, and in the quieter scenes with Teyla/Sheppard/Fran I found myself truly believing this was still Weir. That’s an achievement of performance on Morgan’s part.
It has emerged that the fifth season of Stargate Atlantis will be the last one, and will be replaced by a new, third show: Stargate Universe. The Stargate spin-off will end its regular run this season, instead focusing on movie […]
