    Sorry if there is already a thread...could not find it...so I'm assuming I'm first...

    it was a good ep only because I like the three that were stuck...Not sure what the deal is with the doctor when just a couple of weeks ago she almost got it on with Ronon...now there's an interesting love triangle!

    Is this the first time we've heard Keller's first name?

    As the actress Terry Farrell(?) once said in an interview to the interviewer, "I'll have a drink with you. That doen't mean I will %$#* you, but I will have a drink with you." Just a drink with Rodney is not a relationship, but it is a start, maybe. It is at the very least, the honorable thing to do since he did promise it to her for the 'bar bet' thing.
    It was amusing when Rodney went on and on about the woman's bodies and who was better....just keep shoving that foot deeper down that throat, Rod!!

    Also a few good lines...."Door #2? After you, Monty!" and "Okay, Schwarzenegger(?), Start swinging!!":D:D:D

    I assume Neil DeGrasse Tyson is a fan of the show.

    Poor Sam. She got to tumble two, two and a half stories three times.

    If Rodney gets the doctor, I'll fly to Vancouver and administer a beatdown to the writers with my shoe.

    Maybe I dozed off for a minute or two, but was it ever explained why the kids wouldn't help three stranded people in a deserted mine other than "We're not supposed to be here."?

    No, they just kept saying their parents would kill them.

    Which, considering that the natives suspect the Atlantis team are here to enslave them and put them to work in the mines, might not be too far from reality!

    They're kids. Kids suck. Did you need more than that? :)

    I've had a crush on Jewel Staite since she was in Firefly. I was really let down when she stopped taking off her shirt. :(

    However for all you other Jewel fans she has a really good guest starring row in Dead Like Me:

    Here's something mildly amusing... in my Atlantis folder on the TiVo, I had this episode, "Trio", plus one other episode that had been recorded as a suggestion. That one was called "Duet". Nice symmetry. :)

    Didn't anyone find it odd that she knew about the "three stick trick" when the two physicist/engineers didn't know it?

    What exactly was the point, or value, of this episode? It seems that Rodney was finally told that HE ended the relationship in a way that he hadn't even expected. He needs to talk to his ex, BEFORE he has that drink with the doctor.

    I'm not the least bit surprised that she's the one of the three who has spent enough time in bars to learn that trick...

    She probably learned it from Jayne or Mal...

    It was a decent episode! I liked that I got to see more of Sam in more of a Sam kind of roll.

    There are some other episodes coming up that I'm really looking forward to. I won't give any spoilers, of course.

    I actually enjoyed this one too ... I think it was the banter.

    Like the "who would you?" game ...

    "Colbert or Carrell?"
    "Colbert ... but I'd take John Stewart over both of them."

    or when Sam threw out the physicist names to Keller. :D

    My one nitpick: why didn't they lose the opening up in the ceiling the first time the room shifted?

    The box could've just shifted down on one side and not have lost opening. It'd have gotten further away, that's true, and would've looked different. But much like everyone in space speaking English, it's a TV show and scripts and budgets have limits.

    I'm disappointed, yet again, with the latest SA. If I just wanted dumb samples of 'real life' there are a host of other stupid sitcoms that more than cover it. Errr, well, there WOULD be a host of other sitcoms were the writer's strike not disrupting their delivery. But I'm guessing these have been in the can for a while, so that's no excuse for them. I'll grant you the banter was entertaining. But they could've been just as witty fending off a few Wraith instead of falling down a danged hole.

    As for beatdowns, if they'd had Lassie up there with the kids I'd have been on that plane too.

    I took it that the other two physicists were so focused on their studies/jobs that they didn't do things that other more normal people might do, like relaxing with their friends in bars. It's sort of like Bones where she can't understand any references to popular culture because she has been totally immersed in her studies/work.

    She told Ronan that she spent her entire youth studying, having absolutely NO social life, etc. How does that translate into time spent in bars? This is Keller, NOT Kaylee.

    that's the part of her life that she remembers...all the other memories of the bars are hazy from the massive amount of alcohol she consumed there...

    She was lying... trying to make herself seem like easy prey for Ronin. She's clever that way. :D

    The past is hazy, did Sam and O'Neill become a couple at the end of Stargate's run?
