Trivia

Goofs

Elizabeth Weir is supposed to be an American, yet pronounces everything the way that a Canadian would.

This is most noticeable with the word "been" which she overemphasizes in a manner that an American English speaker would not. See more »

Quotes

Maj. John Sheppard: I prefer a straight line...

Excellent Show
13 December 2004 | by dmiller-20See all my reviews

I just had to give my 2 cents worth on this show in some public forum somewhere because I'd hate to see the studio cancel it because it wasn't getting very good feedback. I watch the show every Monday night and it is the highlight of my week (and, yes, I do have a life).

I very much enjoy the characters, the story lines, and the Wraiths. And given the fact that it is still only the first season I'm hoping that the show will only get better. If you want to see weak story lines just about half the Star Trek: TNG series had them and that show lasted 7 seasons (I believe). Yes, I'm a Trekkie but I don't believe you have to be one or even a fan of the sci fi genre to enjoy this series.

To the writers, producers, and actors on the show I'm cyberbegging that you continue your great work and know that it is being very much appreciated by people like me (smart and handsome).
