A perfect episode! I was actually thinking they have began this new season with their right foot, hopefully this and the upcoming episodes will prove me right.
And let the actors and crew know that this episode wasn't perfect just because they went visit Atlantis. It was very well written, it had well balanced comic scenes, great acting and great directing. It has been a long time since I last felt true anxiety with a SG-1 episode; since I caught myself actually cheering the characters.
So I hope they continue producing great episodes like this one. Well, maybe not so intense, but good episodes. I think the fans diserve it, the old actors diserve it, the newcomer actors diserve it. I enjoy this series very much and now I am happy I haven't given up watching it.
