This planet that you love so much... If you were not hidden, it would not exist, or at least not like this.”

When Sheppard’s team encounter a culture with phase shift technology that keeps their entire population invisible - and immaterial - to the outside world, it looks like Atlantis might have found the perfect protection from the Wraith.

Meanwhile, Canada.com today reported that "Reportedly, there is also interest in Global's new series The Guard, about a search-and-rescue team off the Pacific coast, and CBC's new comedy series Sophie."

In the meantime, if your computer can handle it, you can view episodes at http://www.canada.com/globaltv/globalshows/theguard/video.html. It's small, but it's there.

Exxon Mobil earned more than $1,287 of profit for every second of 2007
