    Just so you know, that clip from Stargate is from the episode “This Mortal Coil,” which premired a few weeks ago.

    Alicia, I will take your word for it. Haven’t kept up with my Stargate Atlantis viewing. There seems to have been a bit of a miscommunication with the promotions people, as I thought they had put out a new clip to promote this week’s show, not an old clip from the fall finale. Thanks for letting me know. Will pull the clip down since it doesn’t actually go with tonight’s episode.
