  • Dr Keller gets infected with an alien virus and the team attempts to save her. This episode also marks the introduction of Woolsey as the leader of the Atlantis expedition.

    I must say that I was slightly disappointed with "The Seed" because it seemed to fall flat somewhat. This episode was the second of the fifth season and you would really expect it to kick it into high gear because it does introduce two new regular cast members to the audience. I was expecting more tension with the introduction of Woolsey as the new leader but the other characters seemed to be shrugging that off like it was of little consequence and even after they "defrosted" Carson I was expecting more emotion from everyone but again the characters seemed slightly off emotionally. Even Rodney seemed less snarky! There are always a few episodes in every season that for some reason don't strike a cord with me so I'm guessing that "The Seed" is one for season five!
