  • Good, but not great.

    Part 2 was OK, but not great. One problem I had was that video rewind bit when the Replicator pressed the button. I would have preferred to see them disintegrate first, Woolsey look shocked, and THEN have the flashback on their plan. This would have played out better considering McKay would be so full of himself explaining everything, acting all smart and crap that they would nearly forget to warn the Dadealus not to fire on the city, which would have another close call for sure. Another problem was with the opening when they played clips from the previous episodes. Like the situation with "Allies" and "No Man's Land", the second part starts by replaying the last scene from Part 1 when they activate the stargate. That should have been among the previous episode clips and the continuation begin at the gate control room as the Replicators began firing on the Jumper after it enters. This was done much better between "The Siege" Parts 2 and 3 as the former ends with Sheppard making his suicide run toward the Wraith ship (that clip being shown before Part 3 begins) and the latter starting when Ford and the soldiers are in a shootout with the Wraith. Let's hope for future 2-parters they more follow this example then what they're been doing recently.
