Isn't that how it looked all along? I watch the damned reruns on 
Saturday midnite cable, aghast at the sluggishness, the drawn out 
laborious e x p l a n a t i o n s , the heavy-handed eye-brow lifted 
wry ripostes, the gruesome stagy fight scenes... It was the available 
technology, sure, but two smooth glowing minutes with SG ATLANTIS 
(however clunky/bogus in its own terms as sf) makes a bloke realize 
how much the media have improved in 40 years.
