Legend of the Seeker: Revenant (2009)
All I can say is that this episode was extremely intense. Richard, once again shows his impulsive nature, led by the noblest of intentions. The crypt was definitely a creepy and awesome setting to have an episode. It also shed some important light on the dynamics of the Seeker-Confessor relationship. It was really interesting to contrast the characters of Richard, Zed and Kahlan with those of Kieran, Vivian and Amfortas. It also allowed us to see very effectively why Richard and Kahlan can never be together while their quest remains unfinished. Giving them and the viewers more incentive to see Darken Rahl killed! The box of Orden which Rahl is obsessively searching for remains in play setting up what is sure to be another thrilling episode next week with Zed going off on his own to hide the box. Looking forward to more Legend of the Seeker!
Stargate: Atlantis: Vegas (2008)
If I wanted to watch a crime show set in Vegas I'd have spent my hour watching CSI
As a huge fan of the Stargate movie, Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis I can say without a doubt that this episode comes short to meeting the expectations I have for this franchise.
This episode is a rare dud in a stellar show. Although well-directed, well-acted (showing the diversity of Joe Flaniga and David Hewlett), as well as showcasing the amazing special effects viewers have come to expect from the Stargate franchise, this episode is nonetheless a failure in its attempt to blend the popularity of CSI with that of the Stargate universe. The death-defying actions of the Wraith, such as jumping off a building leaving "Detective Sheppherd" stunned, do not dumbfound a veteran viewer of Atlantis who has already seen these types of stunts throughout the first few seasons of the show.
Despite being an interesting and creative adaptation, "Vegas" gives the viewer more reason to watch one of the three CSI series than Stargate Atlantis.
