Not a complete review or running commentary for 'Enemy at the gate'. I'm just going to point out my two favorite moments (pretty tiny, shallow and not concerning the plot) that I'd wanted to clip and post at YouTube, but the file won't play in Windows Movie Maker for me :(

And then I'll do some random rambling.

Anyway, both moments concern John.

1) at 16.32; John walking down the ramp at Stargate Command with his black backpack. Seriously. How can anyone make carrying a backpack look hot?!

2) at 23.46; John saying 'come on baby' to his fighter-plane in that breathless way of his. Mnghnghngh...

The good (from the top of my head):

* Sam yay!
* How they let Ronon and Teyla coming along make a conscious decision.
* Ronon shouting 'Rodney!' to warn him while ducking on him.
* Rodney's reaction when Ronon goes down.
* I liked the little General Hammond/Don Davis tribute.
* I like that apparently Amelia and Ronon have a thing going on.

The wtf:

* Rodney and Teyla when they believe Ronon is dead. It's like they read the script and knew he was coming back. There's a short moment of shock, and then they seem to have no second thoughts about leaving him behind and hardly even check if he's showing any sign of life.
* What's with Amelia's hair? It's probably meant to be her off time hair, but it had all the feeling of the ugly girl taking off her glasses and suddenly being all attractive. It's like there's no way a woman can have sensible hair and still be a love interest.
* Rodney and Jennifer. *strangles the writers* Really. No. Chemistry. Whatsoever. Nada. I've been rewatching Firefly lately, and I know for a fact that Jewel can make me care for a person if she's given something decent to work with. But this? Also, this is not the Rodney I fell in love with.

Yes, there are a few interesting and debatable moments. :)
About 23.46. Yeah, it's really mnghnghngh... :))))
Amelia and Ronon? Interesting.... :)-
Immortal Ronan? Honestly, i did not believe in his death.

I'm still getting the episode once it's aired (next friday I think?), because the special effects weren't completely finished in this pre-air version, but I couldn't resist watching either :)

I could have done without the 'Ronon is dead, oh wait no he isn't' thing, but I love how Ronon and Rodney are friends again. Seeing them grow apart over a love interest was painful to watch.

I think it was [ profile] cesperanza who asked about sound files, you know, stories told by editing sounds together. Fanvids are made a lot, but these soundfics (or whatever they should be called) can be fantastic too. This particular snippet should be inspiring! (Pity about the damn plane noises.)

I definitely need another one!

I hope they'll find some excuse for Merlin to take his shirt off in the second season. And have Arthur check him for injuries (and finding them, and kissing it better *dreams off*)

I know, have a little freakout that Ronon's dead, please!

And the Rodney/Jennifer shmoop at the end was just nauseating. (I was also bummed that Lorne and Zelenka weren't on the balcony at teh end. Esp. Lorne since he's from San Francisco!

Other than that, not bad, especially for a s5 ep.

I'm actually looking forward to seeing the finished version, with the finalized special effects, because some of them make the geek in me cheer.
