teacake does Stargate: punch it

I'm doing a sorta rewatch, sorta because there are whole seasons I've missed. We have bad tv here, thankfully I am no longer at its mercy. I have all the dvd's and I'll be running through this religiously. I have seen all of Atlantis and all of SG:U.

I posted these brief reviews in another thread, more to come.

The First Commandment: I felt like I was missing something here.. like a huge back story about Mr. I Am God. Did we see him before this and bond with him? I like eps where the good guys go rogue but there could have been more context other than Carter's comments about him being intense. Garth of Izar he wasn't. However rogue nut's role was helped along for me because he looked very much like a religious nut I know, almost creepily so.

Cold Lazarus: I liked this one, even with my aversion to people's real life problems. I liked the crystals, the learning curve Crystal O'Neill was on, the way it showed you how little the team knew about O'Neill. I liked it right up until the Real O'Neill thought it would be a good idea to show his ex-wife a fake version of her dead child. Here honey, it's not actually our dead child but wow, what a likeness eh? Jesus christ on a stargate.

The Nox: Fairy Quark is sweet! Fairy Quark has pretty mossy hair..

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

They never really used the Nox very much, even though they were one of the four races the Asgard talked about. I wonder if all that hair and makeup was an issue?

I'd think a few Nox characters could've mirrored Oma's role as an ascended Ancient who bends the rules to help humanity, providing an interesting change when you expect the day to be saved by the intervention of Ancients or Asgard. "Oh, it's a Nox this time!" But they never went there.

Maybe the Nox moved in with the Furlings or something.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

Can we attempt some Spoiler freeness btw? Spoiler tags for whats' ahead would be nice My memory is pretty potty.

Brief Candle
: Thanks to Richard Dean Anderson's acting this was a rather touching story. Yes it's the usual but they made it as much about O'Neill as about the makeup and the race against time and that worked for me. Quite funny seeing the stunned looks of the SG team as their leader just gets up without a word and goes off to have sex with a girl he just met. I can see them thinking.. "well uhh.. he IS in charge so I guess this is his call.." Another reminder that this is not Star Trek.

Thor's Hammer: What a bunch of crazy ass gobbledegook. But they crammed a whole lot of info into this one that I suspect will have relevance later on and it's refreshing to step out of the sci fi tropes that have been the previous eps. The Unas was very impressive costume wise, looked like something out of Dr. Who.

Oops! I thought you'd probably watched more of the series than you really had.

Thor was voiced by Michael Shanks (Daniel Jackson).

Cold Lazarus is certainly among the best eps. of the first season.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

Some general observations..

O'Neill is a very good looking man. And amusing.

When is Daniel going to get a hair cut?! He looks like a Peanuts character!

General Hammond: Cosplaying as a turtle?

The Torment of Tantalus: This was pretty interesting at the start and the crumbling castle perched over the cliff shots were fab. Rather a lot of..

Daniel:"No! No! My precious!"

O'Neill: "I don't understand and I don't care!"

I gather that will be a constant theme, the endless wonder geek vs the military.

I loved seeing the old guy step into the stargate in 40's scuba gear.

Bloodlines: I guess there's no point shipping Teal'c now that we know he's devoted to a super hot wife, not that there was much point anyway I do hope this isn't the last we hear of this. And hey, couldn't he have had this this great idea to rescue the kid a month before rather than within minutes of his implantation?

This is the first and only episode Carter's ex-fiance SG officer turned god appears in.

Yes, Thor's Hammer does establish much that is important for the rest of the series.

Well at least we now know what kind of man Carter almost gets married to.

Fire and Water: Daniel Jackson is captured by a lovelorn Naga and imprisoned in Vashj'ir. Meanwhile back on earth his friends trash his pad.

This is the first time I've thought Daniel Jackson looked hot. He lost his huge glasses and got scruffy. Most of the time he just looks like Encyclopedia Brown

The score in this episode was particularly good, I kept noticing it and being impressed.

I loved this ep, so far it is my favorite.

"What fate Omoroca?" Yeah, this is a pretty good episode. The alien is pretty cool, too.

Well that's what it looked like!! It did! Right down to the architecture!

Of course WoW shamelessly ripped off or homaged the Minbari, they created a whole freaking race of Minbari and their "crystal cities". So these little bridges were built long ago.
