  • It feels a bit rushed, and some of the solutions come too easy. But it's still a wild and exciting finale.

    It's the end of an era. There's been a new Stargate episode on the schedule for what... 13 years now ? For the first time in over a decade, we're not sure when the next fix will be available.

    Atlantis' excellent run concludes with a slightly bumpy, but highly entertaining climax. This episode pushes the accelerator down to the floor and doesn't let up until the very end; a LOT happens, and quite a few impossible problems are resolved in rapid order (The city wormhole-jump felt particularly cheap). This really felt like it could have been a 2-hour finale that wound up compressed into a single entity. The continuity from Vegas is nice, but I really thought the finale would set up an Asgard conflict that would be resolved in the inevitable movie. I'm not sure much could have topped the Lost Tribe storyline. Get ready for Universe.
