This weeks Atlantis was one of the better ones so far this season. Carter seemed to be part of the team, Rodney did what Rodney does, a Tayla and Ronon were big parts of the story.
At first, I was disappointed with the back and forth in time gimmick, but in the end it worked. When shows implement that plot device, it usually comes off fake. What worked for it with me was it constantly kept me wondering where Tayla and Ronon were.
As we were watching, I kept wondering why Sheppard didn’t write himself a note that said that Ronon was his friend/partner. But, in the end it was probably better that they guy he left in charge knew who he was, so the picture worked nicely.With SG-1 gone now, Atlantis seems to be filling in nicely…settling in to it’s new title as anchor of the Stargate universe.
