Watched the first episode of the new season last night, up in the air. Without Richard Dean Anderson or Amanda Tipping I don't know. Cool to see Ben Browder and Claudia Black on the same screen again though. I just hope Ben doesn't play the part exactly like Crichton(so far is pretty damn similar). Oh and I think it pretty obvious that both Stargate and Stargate: Atlantis had their budgets cut down. Both had crappy visual effects and Atlantis' fight scenes were pretty badly choreographed. Not that Stargate has been known for the greatest fight scenes and all, but the effects used to be a little better. When the SG-1 team ringed down into "Avalon" the rings look like pieces of plain grey plastic.
