Stargate Atlantis

I was over to Aaron's last night giving him sage advice (he's thinking of putting together an anime/gaming con for the late fall here in Toronto), for which he fed me a stir-fry, and we watched the first episodes of Stargate Atlantis.

While I love the originalStargate TV show, my impressions of the spin-off were sorely lacking. Stargate worked from the get-go because all the major characters were well-defined and had such great interaction, but this new bunch are bland and blander, and the direction was uninspired at best. There is a really hot babe in it though. I'll probably give it a couple of more episodes to try and find its way before I make up my mind.

The only good characters, IMO, are McKay (who's awesome, and perhaps not coincidentally, originally an SG-1 character) and the Scottish doctor.

Why isn't the doctor in the opening credits? They do the same thing in SG-1! Dr. Frasier in like 5/6ths of all the episodes and she never makes it into the credits.

Tayla's a babe.
