    Let's face it Stargate puts out great episodes every year however I was quite concerned when the Season 5 permier would be only about three (think 2) months after season 4 wrapped up.

    The result is a great story and good character moments. The biggest drawback is the visual effects. Solid at times but some shots were just cringe worthy (Wraith in hyperspace and the first part of the wraith dart being shot at by the female soldier, forget her name) . This is not the vfx department's fault they do a bloody good job and if they were given a bit more time, another 2/3 months the show would be a lot better both practacly and visually.

    If the show gets picked up for a sixth season (probably will) I hope they get a lot more time to do the show because they truly deserve it.
