rewatching Stargate Atlantis
I'm a fan. I have all 5 seasons on DVD. It's been long enough that I've forgotten significant chunks of it all, which is the point of waiting awhile before rewatching something IMO. Since I've seen it all before, and could see it again any time I want if I'm so inclined, I'm not giving it my 100% undivided attention. I tend to do laptop stuff while it's on, and it's getting maybe 65% of my attention, unless it gets particularly interesting. Or maybe my multitasking level of attention is good enough for a lot of it, call it my 'foreground priority level' if you like.
From this sort of "standing back" perspective, I'm noticing that there's a semi plot hole at the end of season 2. Um, they get fooled by a Wraith cyberattack. And they had encountered a Wraith cyberattack in a previous episode, it almost flew the Daedalus into the corona of a star. It was decent writing, and they even explained how they got fooled. But, uh, the big plot hole is avoiding letting the Wraith know how to get to Earth, should have been a major strategic priority that they never should have lost sight of. The "standing back" perspective makes it more obvious that the heroes were portrayed as pretty dumb / clueless about this. For the purpose of having other good things happen in episodes / plot trajectories.
I find it easier to stop paying attention when it's "crisis, technical gibber jabber, blah blah blah." After awhile I'm just like, sci-fi action stuff. Stargate Atlantis is better at acknowledging that sci-fi action tropes occur in all sorts of shows, and their universe isn't written "genre blind". Characters have seen Star Wars, Star Trek, etc.
I do find the "Michael" plot line interesting though. It's where I'm at in my rewatch, right now.
