Stargate Atlantis most recent episode observation
Anyone who has seen this last episode probably shares my feelings that they could have done a lot more with a certain interaction between two characters. Behind the cut is one of my ideas for what they could have done.

There was one argument between Carter and McKay that I would have expected. I honestly expected McKay to say that Carter represented his self-doubt and that he makes it a point never to listen to his own doubts, which would explain a *lot* actually.

Although they didn't have him come right out and say it..I think it was implied on some level that he came to that realization. But I could just be reading into it as well. ;)

What's the diff between stargate and stargate atlantis? spin-off? I never noticed "atlantis" before?

After toppling the Gua'ould and the little metal spiders, the show needed some other force to perceive as the enemy. At the moment it has two, the Wraith who are in the land of the ancients, where Atlantis is, and the Baptists.

Sorry, did I say Baptists? Must be on my mind for some reason. No it is some other religious cult thing that just acts like Baptists. They come to your planet and if you don't pray to them they respond by protesting at your funeral or something like that.

The two shows operate greatly independently with entirely separate sets of actors/characters with different interaction and flavor, except of course they meet now and then which is cool. Reminds me of the days when the cast of Green Acres, Petticoat Junction and the Beverly Hillbillies would all cross paths at one point or another.

This business of mixing casts mostly seems to happen whenever Atlantis needs help from an earth based Starship, as it does not have any of its own. At least it didn't until very recently but I've not heard how that has gone since they rescued an ancient starship from a lavaflow, which was mostly due to some pretty incredible positive thinking on the part of one character, Dr Rodney McKay who was in at least one episode of Stargate before Atlantis started.
