One can know the name Luke Skywalker without ever having seen any of the movies. I unfortunately know who Edward the Vampire is despite never having seen a Twilight movie or read any of the books.
Yes, one can - but since O'Neill is into SF which was stated in some episode (don't know which now), I'd wager he'd seen SW.
I don't remember it being stated O'Neill was into sci-fi. Indeed, the Star Wars conversation in Ascension seems to indicate he isn't (Carter: "You've never seen Star Wars?" O'Neill: "Well, you know me and sci-fi.")

Of course, over the course of the series, O'Neill makes a few Star Trek references indicating he might have more than a passing interest in Trek.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

Maybe he missed Star Wars because he was deployed somewhere, but it's hard to imagine that he never watched it with is son, especially since he's a fighter pilot. I'm guessing the line just made the scene funnier.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

Maybe he was always meaning to watch it with his son but he was too busy and now he will never watch it because of the terrible regret.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

They should've used that for a poignant moment in another episode. It would've been emotionally powerful.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

They could have had a few riffs from Cat's in the Cradle in the background.

It could have been a whole different Stargate.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

I'm curious if you ever watched "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles." It only ran two seasons, but it was good.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

Rite of Passage: Nirrti is my absolute favorite Goa'uld. She's just so in your face And the constant open mouth sneer.



Okay the big mystery here is WHAT was Cassandra changing into? Frasier seemed to think she was changing into a dead girl but Cassandra seemed to think she was changing into something new and cool and powerful.

No one asked WHY Cassandra so desperately did not want this transformation to be stopped especially as she obviously felt like crap.

I got the distinct impression that Nirrti thought O'Neill was hot. There is one scene where she looks to him as she makes her mind up and then the end scene when she checks him out as she's about to leave. This is her looking at O'Neill in that scene:



It's not surprising, he is very hot and I think she would love to just pounce on him. Of course he'd be a husk of his former self when she was finished.

I do, but it did get cancelled after season 2 on a cliff-hanger. At times it was tremendous (and other times it wasn't, and occassionally it's a bit cheesy).

By episode 5 you should know if it has you hooked.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

Beast of Burden: Damn you Rolling Stones, I've always hated you, I hated you when everyone else loved you and I hate you even more now for your whining dumbass lyrics that I couldn't get out of my head while watching this.

In this episode Claudia is proved to be correct on the matter of O'Neill's Star Wars viewing as just after the opening credits he directly quotes Luke Skywalker with a quote that the general public never picked up on.

I was shocked when Daniel handed the Unas the weapon at the end of this. Does he really think this is going to be some noble freedom fighting endeavor and not result in the slaughter of children? As usual he has let sentiment rule.

And..

O'Neill: Daniel, dogs sniff each other's butts, and they're friends for life. We still keep them as pets.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

The Tomb: I kept waiting for the Russian bird to take off her beret and shake her hair out. Her hair looked to be fashionably short like Carter's (notice I have now gotten used to Carter's hair, though I still preferred Seasons 1-3 variations).

She never did though which is a TERRIBLE WASTE.



Wow a Goa'uld in octopus bug creature.. that was cool. The Russian/American tensions seemed very old tat, this wasn't the cold war era. Russians were a bit cartoony. Still the beautiful Russian bird might return and that is something to hope for. Good Indianna Jones ep.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

Between Two Fires: Wow, a political intrigue with a great surprise towards the end. I gasped when I saw him, LOL. Taneth is excellent, great actor, great presence, just a perfect suave villain.



And the Tollan are fucked.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

I have to say there are some GREAT Goa'uld. Wonderful acting, interesting faces. They are very well done villains.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

2001: That was a great follow on from 2010 though I now feel sorry for Carter's fella who manages to be a hero in this one after being a weasel in the first. And now he's (presumably) dead

Kinsey is an idiot.
