So: confession. I have had a beef with the Stargate franchise for ages. You're not going to understand the logic, frankly, because there is little-to-no logic involved, it was all based on feelings. But, to make a long story short, I sort of blamed them for the end of Farscape. And, yes, I have also always been aware that they subsequently gave Claudia Black and Ben Browder jobs and I usually let bygones-be-bygones when shows I have grudges against give my favorite actors roles. Somehow, my grudge against Stargate persisted.

But I always knew, like, in the back of my mind/heart, that I was gonna love Stargate: Atlantis. That's probably a goodly portion of why my grudge lasted so interminably. And then it turned up on Netflix instant and I was like, "Just watch it, B. You probably were wrong about how you were going to love it instantly and passionately. You'll probably be able to have an even stronger grudge after."

That was not the case. I started, like, two nights ago. I'm already well into Season 2. I have work to do, you know. It's like the revenge of the franchise, this whole absorbing-my-whole-life-and-leaving-no-time-for-real-life-BS stuff. I already said I was sorry, franchise. Can't we just let bygones be bygones?

But, yes. My life is full of Atlantis right now.

I have a question, though. I am pretty perplexed by the Ronan Dex--why didn't the Wraith eat him? I have tried googling this (my Google history was already a shitshow of crazypants, not the least of which is the frantic question "How yu stop flambe??" from that minor emergency in the kitchen a couple of months ago) and have come up with contradictory answers. Can anybody help me out here?
