Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

One of my fave fun episodes (along with the WormHole Extreme one). I'm also with Sindatur on Martouf Surprised he never showed up as one of Tapping's boys on Sanctuary.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

^She had quite the bevy of lads didn't she?

Out of Mind pt.1: So we have a story with a twist, a dramatic ending, the return of the glorious Hathor.. and a series of too-long flashbacks that could have been mentioned in few words or a single image for each. They couldn't take a perfectly good plot and make an entire episode out of it for the season finale? Blech. How disappointing.

However something very exciting has happened in this episode, though it remains to be seen whether it continues.

SOMEONE HAS CUT DANIEL'S HAIR!

:: happy happy happy ::

And on to Season 3.. and hoping the flashbacks don't continue for the opening episode.

Oh and just so this episode isn't a total write off here's a pic of Carter in a silver towel.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

Into the Fire pt 2: No flashbacks! Was there a writer's strike for pt 1? While not exactly riveting it was a fine action adventure.

There were several lovely elements..



The beautiful Tokra agent. Also appeared on Battlestar Galactica as a deckhand.

And then we also got O'Neill swanning around in a white suit, his hair rather suddenly very silver. It's a great look.



"Welcome to Fantasy Island.."

I'm looking forward to what Season 3 has in store!

More likely, the budget ran out, or they had a really close deadline for filming part 1. Or both.

Both Showtime (seasons 1-5) and Sci Fi insistead on doing clip show / flashback episodes during the end of the seasons. Probably, as Wormhole said, to save some money,

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

In the directors commentaries (and I think Ronald D Moore talked about this for BSG), clip shows allow you to shift budgeted money between episodes so you can support one that eats up a ton of sets or CGI. But what 46379.1 said might indicate that SciFi was trying to get some shows to do flashback season endings, which would of course be the end of that season's budget, so perhaps they wanted to use that money on some other show's season-ending budget-busting blowout, or perhaps some executive had his bonus based on how much a series came in under budget.

As for Carter covered by a silver towel, O'Neill definitely wanted to look, too.

And once again, we saw the failure of a Goa'uld hand-device, which seem to be less effective at inflicting face pain than pepper-spray. Sadly, at no point in the series did an SG member pepper spray a Goa'uld using a hand-device, in a cute "my hand weapon trumps your hand weapon" scene.

Little known fact: Hathor wasn't killed, just frozen, and she was later freed by a rival system lord. Then she escaped and to Earth and used her one skill (tricking unwary men in close proximity into worshipping her) to get a reality show, now calling herself "Kim Kardasian".

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

I was disappointed to see that Hathor's nail polish was a frosted bronze in that ep. This seemed more suitable for Apophis.

As to looking.. he does look, at her back.. a rather long look and then he tells her she better change clothes with the guy on the floor

Thanks all for the flashback explanations!

I don't know about that. After all, Politics and Out of Mind were the only clip shows during the Showtime run.

I suspect the reason there were so many clip shows during the Sci-fi run was more to do with RDA's decreased availability. After all, they didn't do any after he left the show, and Atlantis only did one during its five year run. SGU didn't do any at all.

That's just far more creepy than I ever expected an SG-1 Caption to get
(I'm sure this is because I'm picturing Mr. Roarke judging NuKhan by Mr. Roarke's Standards)

First Judgmental statement would probably be "You Look Like Tattoo Flailing about like that"...(The Plane, The Plane, Bosth, The Plane)

I had a really bad rejoinder to this. Let's just say it involved Teal'c and the DS9 episode One Little Ship and leave it at that. And now..

Seth: This has always been one of my least favorite names (apologies if any of you are actually named this, ack) because my mother had all the Seth books on her bookshelf and I thought all that newage stuff was creepy as fuck. So having Seth as the Goa'uld undercover cult leader in his own compound on earth (in the PNW no less!) fit rather nicely. This episode also gave us a Jaffa joke which was just.. priceless. The whole scene, Teal'c laughing out loud after he relayed it and everyone else's reactions was great.

This episode contains my so far favorite line in Stargate, spoken by O'Neill to Carter after she kills Seth using the magic Goa'uld bracelet she wields thanks to her past blending.

"Hail Dorothy."

I'd watch this episode twenty times over to hear him deliver that again.

The sixth and seventh season's cllip shows I do believe were because they spent more money on those season's finales. Clip shows are normally cost cutting measures as with TNG's Shades Of Grey.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

Fair Game: This was kind of dull, though we learned a lot more about the Asgard. Loved seeing the system lords being all imperious in their dress ups. The stand out winner of this episode was Jacqueline Samuda as Nirrti, WOW. Another beautiful woman with an interesting face. Vicious and in harem gear.

She pretty much had this look on her face the whole time

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

Legacy: Daniel was not feeling his best.



An interesting sci fi medical mystery. Carter saves the day again thanks to her blending powers. Is there nothing having a goa'uld in your gut for five minutes can't fix?

I love Legacy, as cornball as it is. The reactions of the team when they think one of their own has gone insane, the scenes of Daniel in the psych ward, the whole team losing it in the lab---good stuff.

Plus, any Danny-centric episode is, in my book, a good one.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

I thought it was almost odd how they think he's going insane because of gate travel. Don't they realize that when someone tells you they are seeing and hearing mysterious invisible aliens they are?
