Re: Ewww.. SGU let's have some freaking protocol

The ep I saw said the other body dies too. Haven't seen it tested yet though.

Re: Ewww.. SGU let's have some freaking protocol

So if A and B swap, and A dies while in B's body, then B also dies in A's body?

Bummer.

Re: Ewww.. SGU let's have some freaking protocol

That's what was said, as theory, in Earth I think. Whether more gets said or disproved afterwards I don't know yet because I've only watched up to Time. Which was awful btw and I pretty much love everything with time travel in it.

There is one gorgeous woman on this show that appears to be a minor character





Vanessa James.

The Chloe character (who I initially thought was Summer Glau but isn't) is boring as all crap. Oh no, my daddy is dead lets have sex we're going to die too. Maybe she'll improve and get a personality.

Chloe becomes more interesting by the end of the season.

The stones deal is explained in a webisode. The swapping is viewed as a conjugal visits, so the volunteers all sign waivers allowing for that kind of stuff.

Concur. I only sat through show once and suffered through to end. Maybe should rewatch.

Doesn't stop it from being weird. Well, I can't say it was weird, since the last episode I watched was "Light." But it certainly sounds weird.

I really need to go back and watch the rest of SGU one of these days. I did see potential in what I did watch, but I didn't keep up with it for some reason. And I'm curious to see just how much it did improve in Season Two.

Re: Ewww.. SGU let's have some freaking protocol

Everything has answers in webisodes these days. Misfits, BSG, SGU, the new Dr. Who series is being preceded by Pond Life on youtube..

It just means I have to pay more attention.

Anyway, I just watched the ep Earth and am so creeped out I feel like having a shower. Having sex in someone else's body?! Are there NO guidelines to what you do when using this form of communication? Bad enough to get drunk.. but geezus.
Is this the one where Young is having sex with his ex and Telford accidentally finds himself back in his body mid-intercourse? If so, I loved that. It was one of the funniest, kinkiest and most memorable sex scenes ever.

The arguments made against conjugal visits makes sense, but I enjoyed their inclusion none the less.

By the way, here's the kinosode where a volunteer talks about giving consent for others to use her body...



I especially like how the ending was written, given how Eli feels about Chloe.

Watching SGU all the way through for the first time. Was VERY disappointed because someone told me that Rodney was in the pilot as a hand over type deal and.. he isn't However looking it up I see he will be in one episode.. !!!

Rant rant rant.. anyway what was the reaction, if any, to this event when the episode aired?
So, Rodney McKay doesn't need to be bothered with Loaning his body to your husband for stoning in from Destiny, then?

What I never understood was why they didn't try to get the damn stones to transmit something that's actually useful, like audiovisual data. You've basically got the ultimate ISP in that platform (which they have managed to miniaturize), but you're going to stick with the least reliable way of getting info ever.

Re: Ewww.. SGU let's have some freaking protocol

Yeah didn't have a big problem with it, though I admit that some people on earth absolutely would, but then those aren't the people that would sign up for such duty.

And the show does go and show two Earth characters having difficulty (one greatly) with the idea that this "random soldier" is the person they claim. SO the show does actually cover its basis, in this regard.

I mean to this day you see people with a wide range of what they find acceptable sexually, so I don't see a problem. Hell I know some one who performs a sexual role for a couple, after one of the partners was no longer able to perform a sexual role in their lives after a serious car accident. It seems to work for them.

And think even Trek has dealt with this with the beings that assumed (with initial approval from host, though probably not for those sorts of activities) control over the host bodies of Kirk, SPock and female crew member back in the 60's.
