I prefer my scifi straight up and consistant.

Those funny episodes were cringe making.

Id watch it for a while and its all going fine, straight up writng, then a funny episode comes on and trashes it.

And really it dosnt matter how long a show lasts. Some awful programmes are old.

Some go on far too long and get hidious , like Charmed.
That was meant to end then they brought it back and it was dire.Too many kids in it.

Feel free to die when youve had enough
Useless cause is breaking your back
Your life will end when you attack

I'm confused by how you mean consistent.

When doing a sci-fi show, the door is literally open to a plethora of ideas. Everything is possible, which makes Sci-fi great. However, not every idea can fit into the realm of serious, something so out there that you just can't take it seriously for long.

Perfect example, the episode of SG-1, where O'Neill and Teal'c get caught in a time loop. So they end up reliving the same day over and over. The Groundhogs Day episode. It started off serious, but then it took the turn to make it realistic, where if you were reliving the same day over and over, you'd do whatever the hell you wanted for awhile. It added a good amount of humor, kept the episode interesting, but still had the serious tone and suspense to it.

Plus the serious episodes vastly outweighed the humor episodes.

You can't keep sci-fi serious all the time. Otherwise it'd become 24: In Space. And nobody wants that.

And Atlantis has it's fair share of funny episodes. The one where everyone records video messages to be sent through the Stargate to Earth, the recent one where McKay, Carter, and Keller (Kaylee Frye from Firefly!) are stuck in a mine shaft, the episode where McKay is stuck in a sinking Puddlejumper and hallucinates Carter to help him, the list goes on.

I'm throwing my vote for the Wraith in this conflict. I think a lot of people underestimate that the Wraith are able to heal themselves extraordinarily quickly via feeding.

Now consider that Jaffa are essentially long lived humans with exceptional health, and that's considerably more life then a regular human would have.

Now add in the fact that the Wraith can make you see and hear things that aren't there, and you have a considerable advantage for the Wraith.

Wraith win because the Jaffa are confused, superior fodder for the Wraith, and Wraith healing.

If the Jaffa are experienced Vs. the Wraith, then it's a closer call, but I'm considering this a "First encounter" kind of thing.
