Let’s start you off with a grammar lesson…

This looks like a good movie :

Continuing our Stargate: Atlantis rewatch with season one’s penultimate episode: The Siege – Part 1!
Atlantis’s first season ends with a bang. Actually, multiple bangs. My thoughts on the big two-part season finale here: June 17, 2012: Checking out the new food trucks! Days of Stargate Atlantis Past! Siege I and II!
As for Akemi, she quite enjoyed this one. High points for her included McKay, Zelenka, and the “very cool computer graphics!”. She loved McKay’s EVA: “I found very cool the scene to jump in space.” and the destruction of the hive ship: “Like the shot of them destroying the ship.”
The episode was not, however, without its bumps. The second Halling walked into Weir’s office: “Oh, no. Ritual!” And then, after the conversation about the saving Atlantis, she was much relieved: “I thought he was going to do another ritual. Did ritual for Teyla dying. Maybe ritual for wraith is coming.”
She wasn’t a fan of the later (filler) Weir-Zelenka scene in which Weir expresses her desire to save more of the Ancient database (again) and Zelenka explains it is quite impossible (again): “I’ve heard this all before.” She also found McKay’s spacesuit altogether hilarious: “Silly looking suit!”she laughed.
Props to Rachel (“Whenever Teyla try to read mind, so scary. She is good actress.”) and Torri (“She is beautiful woman.”).
But she is still hung up on the wraith hair. When Bob makes his first appearance: “Bad hair!” And later, when Bob is imprisoned: “First one, Steven, had such beautiful hair. But this one has ugly hair. Dreadlocks. Like rock ‘n roll hair.” Das, is there something you’d like to add?
She seemed strangely unmoved by the shocking demise of Peter Grodin. “Did you feel sorry for Peter?”I asked. “Sure,”she replied. “He seemed nice guy, Peter-san.”
And tonight, things wrap up with Siege II. Akemi is looking forward to it: “Excited for the next episode. Hopefully it’s happy ending.” Errr….
So, what did you all think of Siege I?
