(no subject)

The night of scifi was fun. Star gate was a stumble start, but i am willing to give it a bit of time to fully get up to steam before i determine train wreck. Ben Bowder was doing his sence of humor from Farscape but with less brooding. Claudia Black on the other hand was howlingly funny at times. Beau Bridges should be fun to watch. He is not another Hammond.

Stargate Atlantis. Nice visuals not certain I liked the story. REally not certain I like where the whole thing with ford is going. Mitch Pileggi gave a good performance of a proper military officer. Hope to see the show do well.

Battlestar Galactica is just always neat. This was a good episode. I think the season one opener was stronger but not bad at all. They need to clean the seperate threads up a bit just to get some of the tightness back. I have heard people try and compare this show to the original. This is not a good way to look at it. While they have basic story elements in common(refuge humans, cylons) the feels of the shows are radically different. Also to be perfectly honest and tossing nostalga out the window. The writing on the original was hardly the best. It was cheesball through and though.
