Oh, the first few eps of Stargate Atlantis Season 3 were a bit on the less exciting side but Sateda is shiny. Reminded me a bit of the one from Season 1 where they crash on that planet with that old Wraith. Nice they did something with Ronon, I like the character but he remains underdeveloped. And the team - awww.

I love Sateda. We did an SGA evening the other day, and it was one of the episodes we watched. (Along with The Defiant One, which I think is the episode you're referring to...)

It was really cool with Ronon having to outfight all the Wraith and then the team coming to his rescue. And Sheppard verbally upping his kill count. Hee.

Yup. I guess what I really loved about this episode was how much of a team they felt - like a big family. And everyone wanted to come to the rescue.

I also like that they name Ronon the cave man, but that in fact he was from a quite advanced civilisation.

Loved that. And Sheppard`s little non-speech about his team in the mess hall.

Nod, nod. As far as people in the Pegasus galaxy go they had advanced weapons and everything. And of course Ronon is far from stupid, pretty good tactician.

Yes! I loved that. I like John and Teyla together. :-)

Yup. He was quite cool in the most recent episode, too.

It really was an awesome episode. I think the writers don`t really know what to do with Ronon, the character has potential but the only ones they`re really writing for are McShep. And I love McShep but they have an ensemble cast not a two-man cast.

Really? I don't see it that way at all. I think they avoid writing for McShep as much as possible. Any chance they have to separate them and to show that Rodney likes GIRLS and Sheppard likes girls, they do it. What's amusing is that all they need is one little scene together and that's enough, but even the girls always seem to make that show more slashy. But yeah, I think they go out of their way on that show to hit people over the head with the liking girls part. Not that I care, but it can be annoying sometimes when it feels like it's inserted into the show for exactly that reason--kind of like what it seems like they're doing to Dean right now. *g*

Oh, I was explaining it wrong. I just shortened McShep as in both characters, meaning I don`t see them so much writing scenes for both of them anymore as that the two characters seem to get the lion`s share of plot and episodic material.

The others often have the roles from Star Trek a la "sits on bridge, gives a few lines exposition and pushes buttons" or the equivalent of it. Say they come to a planet and either Sheppard does something warrior-like or McKay brings does something brilliant and yet comedic or both and Teyla and Ronon are just kind of there. They get their occasional subplot or episode but that`s it.

That said, I have only seen up to "Sateda" as of now so I`m missing pretty much all of Season 3 and have not seen any of Season 4 so I can`t say how/if that changes.
