Syfy (ended 2009)
I totally agree about the 'Whispers 2' thing, also pretty gruesome when the wraith warriors killed one of the marines. I think it would be better off with the hand sucking the life out of a person rather than a slow painful death of being eaten alive.
A few things though: I was hoping that they would've given insight to how a hive ship was created rather than just the part the ship is part organic.
And what ever happened to the supposed 'turning wraith into human' gas from season 2-3? I mean if Todd wants an advantage, he could have used it upon an enemy hive ship and also allow his warriors to feed on the wraith turned human. And then there won't be this need to get rid of the 'feeding hand'. Or maybe that would've been too easy?
|Becketts retrovirus falls under the category of been there done that... so i know why they are trying to get away from it... and Shepard did mention it though As for an ep it was great, i was a little disapointed from the hive hitting the ocean VFX (mainly because i do VFX myeself) but it would of been very difficult to do it properly anyway, what would of been interesting is if the wave smashed into Atlantis or something like that could of been funny, Woolsey could of made a "and you flooded the lower sections of the city... AGAIN..." comment other than that a very good episode, and i cant wait for the next 3 id say 9/10|
And lol, that would've been a funny scene about 'flooding the city' again.
|It was a good episode but I think they could have done a better job of it. I would have had added to the plot. First, I would have had Woolsey and Sheppard have a private conversation after the decision to check out the Wraith ship a second time. Woolsey would have told Sheppard to find out how much technology Todd and the Wraith were able to steal while the Wraith had control of the Daedalus by using any means necessary including allowing Ronan to put the screws to Todd. Wraith ships with beam weapons and transporter technology is a horrific thought. Sheppard would reply he had no problem with that. Then in a scene later on Sheppard is interrogating Todd with Ronan and just where it starts to get tense and Ronan is pointing his weapon at Todd's chest the ship starts to fall apart. Then Sheppard makes the deal with Todd to let him go if Todd can save them. Then Todd is let go and good vibes between Sheppard and Todd abound. We all think we have an ally. Then Keller finds out that Todd altered the gene therapy to make his drone warriors more aggressive but the added aggression just made them hungrier and that's why they seem so out of control. Woolsey and Sheppard come to the realization that Todd wasn't trying to bring an end to hostilities between Wraith and Humans, he was trying to give his alliance an edge in the Wraith civil war by creating super soldiers. All the good vibes that were there when Todd was released disappear adding more uncertainty and drama. If Todd had enough information stolen from the Daedulus to alter the gene therapy, what else does he know. Beam weapon tech? transporter tech? Asgard hyper drives? The location of Earth? Would he use this information to make himself valuable to another hive ship and Queen? What happens when we meet Todd again? Is he friend or foe? Could have been a great two parter for the next Todd visit in season 6. We could call it "Todd: The Final Conflict." Oh what could have been in season 6....sob......sniff....|
yeah those were really good ideas. I do like that Todd survived, but it would be nice to have a future type stargat episode where the wraith and the humans are finally working as friends and the wraith received a retrovirus that worked. That is my wish. I was just happy to see todd again, Woooo he could have his own show. so frigging sexy.
|Thanks guys...oh I'm blushing. Actually I can't understand why the characters show very little concern over what Todd may have downloaded from the Daedalus computer files. Such a transfer of technology would make his wraith rulers of the galaxy and a potential invasion of the Milky Way. Just for that Woolsey could have lost his job.|
|Ebony once again you have confused all us men out here on the net. And if I had to guess you like it that way, because it keeps us dudes on our toes.|
