I liked this episode. I really enjoyed it. Teyla as a tiny fierce Wraith Queen was great and her worried team was adorkable. So here my very, very late commentary:
( SPOILERS!! )
( ONE LITTLE PEEVE )
( And a gazillion screen caps in high resolution no less. )
Good episode. Listed #4 on my list.
Well ok. I knew I wasn't going to like it much, what with no Rodney, no Teyla, no Ronon and Joe Mallozzi writing it, but I wanted to like it. It's SGA after all. It has John Sheppard.
I'm going to gloss over the constant splitting up "to cover more ground" and running away from main group and protection smack into danger, because that is a must-do in horror. No. What I really didn't like, was:
( Read more... )
So for now, Whispers is at the bottom of the S5 heap, where I hope it will stay. If this is the last season, I want all awesome episodes.
ETA: *ROFL* Screams by facetofcathy
Did the filming of this and last week's episode coincide with a confest or something? Last week Sheppard and McKay, this week Sheppard and Ronon. Where's everybody?
*dies of SGA overload*
Aside from the total lack of Sheppard and McKay (I rewatched their scenes a couple of times to even it out a little - “Shane!”), this episode didn’t suck nearly as bad askarri_kln1671said it would. But then, I’m starting to develop a serious girl crush on Keller. She, with her fear of bugs, her disgust of slimy tendril food, her avoidance of physical exercise and her low threshold for pain, is me. I totally channelled her throughout the ep.
Besides, we all know this episode was written to explain Teyla’s pregnancy. (just move your mouse over the text. I'm fed up with LJ-cut)
So, on to more shallow things. Season 4 uniforms and what were they thinking. Am I the only person in SGA fandom who’s unhappy with the way “they” (the wardrobe pod people) are dressing Sheppard this season?
This, people, is HOT.
This is not.
And in Tabula Rasa I was struck by how small he looked between those bulky marines with their crew cuts and tac vests (and shouldn't those marines at least acknowledge their CO when he steps in the room? They completely ignored him). It's time he pulls some rank.
Men are from Mars.
Buddy didn't get it. He wants space fights and season story arc. We agreed about three things though:
1. Carter is ok, but Weir was better.
2. Heightmeyer's make-up looked weird this episode. Also, we never liked her.
3. We want to see the huge venomous snake-like creatures on the main land.
BTW: the snakes immediately reminded me of Koscha’s fanfic ‘A Geek in the Grass’, which is excellent!
Next week Doppelganger. I can.not.wait.
