Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

So far as I know, the only connection Jack has to the President is that he keeps saving the planet, and Presidents tend to look favorably on that.

In the rest of the series, Carter's hair doesn't change any more than it already has, except for another altered-reality episode, similar to Carter from the parallel universe who was married to O'Neill.

I liked her hair changing for 3 Seasons! It was lovely. I can't believe they are leaving her in my least favorite hair for the rest of the show. The Doctor has longer hair, other women have longer hair

They have cut her beauty in half.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

No, I'm not saying that!

Her hair keeps changing, it's just that everything you've seen so far is also in conformance with regulations (except for the somewhat disheveled styles, which might be an artifact of gate travel).

Oh, and the military sometimes throws their grooming requirements out the window, such as in Afghanistan where a beard was required in certain branches so the natives wouldn't freak out, and the bushier the better, within reason.

I wish SG-1 showed more of her full-on smile. Often she grins on the show, but if you've seen her turn on a big beaming smile (like she often does in the director's specials and such), well, she goes all Christie Brinkley super-model radiant. Perhaps they decided that would detract from the serious nature of her character, though.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

2010: I've always loved AU eps, something I don't consider Trek's MU to have done to the same extent or very well at all. This episode was a classic example of what Trek would never ever have done and which was just delightful.

But first, the griping.



Carter looks terrible with this hair style. I have loved other women with this cut but not Carter!!

And to continue this in depth episode analysis:



Janet. Frasier. You are so gorgeous.

Now to the gritty. Carter is married to a seemingly decent bloke who is actually a schmuck. I love how O'Neill is so understated in his sarcastic petty jealousy about Carter's husband. After the thrill of O'Neill I am sure this guy is dead dull and don't we all suspect that this had a hand in propelling her towards the Stargate in her big CHANGE TIME plan?

I know I would change time to get something better than that guy. The Aschen really screwed up here because if Carter had had kids she might have not been so keen to wipe out their existence through her slingshot around the sun flare. But the husband? pfft..

Thoroughly enjoyed this.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

I liked the episode, but it had one glaring problem. Everyone would've noticed sterility in a few months when the pregnancy rate dropped. Lots of specialists do nothing but work with pregnancies, and shortly after that the nurses in the maternity wards would notice that they haven't seen a baby in, oh, a few months. A more believable twist would've been that the technlogy caused second-generation sterility, so that none of the kids being born could have kids. But even that would give them a couple of decades to correct the problem through further intervensions, perhaps using Asgard cloning technology. Also missing was the fact that the Asgard would probably not let such a thing happen.

So other than it not quite making complete logical sense and not quite conforming to what's already been established (really those are minor nitpics), it was a great episode, as evidence by the fact that none of those nitpicks really mattered when you watched it.

Odd fact. When they first started with the story, they were putting the accent on the first syllable, "ashen". Someone then put the accent on the second syllable to make them sound like a race of people, and it made much more sense to everyone, hiding the true nature of the threat. "Ashen" as a regular word is how bubonic plauge victims were described, and it still triggers a reaction. I think the episode might have one instance where the first pronunciation was used.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

I just assumed there was a mind numbing spell cast over the humans so that they never thought about or looked too closely at the almost complete absence of babies in the maternity wards

As Carter and Frasier point out when they discover the sterility, the Aschen likely have total control over the media, so even if someone talks about decrease of births, they are likely quickly discredited.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

Absolute Power: So it seems when two vaguely brownish people have a baby BUT they both have snakes in their heads their offspring is Asian. I do hope this fascinating biological factlet is explained in a future episode. Of course the other explanation is that the Harcesis can make himself look however he likes and so took a pleasing image from the temple folk he was hanging out with.

Thank goodness for his foster mom because it seems he could really screw things up for a lot of people if he didn't have all that mental discipline.

The simplest explanations are often best. To the Goa'uld we all look alike, so Apophis doesn't suspect that the father of Amaunet/Sha're's baby is, quite obviously, the system lord Yu. All of us would realize that in heartbeat.

Actually, I don't know if the show ever even implied that, but it really would've made an interesting twist and explain why Amaunet was desperately hiding her baby from Apophis - and blaming everyone else for kidnapping the kid. As soon as Apophis saw the child he'd know Amaunet had been cheating on him with Yu, plotting behind his back, and would have her executed, along with Yu's illegitimate harsesis spawn.

Re: teacake does Stargate: punch it

Yes that is a very good explanation! Also odd though was that on one at SG1 commented on this.

The Light: The team goes to an opium palace and spends half the episode tripping on a giant lava lamp. They were the lucky ones though as another whole team dies from going cold turkey. They are cured after spending three weeks in rehab, presumably doing work sent through the gate by Hammond so they don't die of boredom. I would have liked to have seen O'Neill treating Hammond like room service and ordering all manner of things to eat and occupy himself with.

There are two explanations for that too. Either the Goa'uld all look alike to them, or nobody wanted to tell Daniel that his wife is cheating on the alien she left him for. The probalby didn't tell him the Goa'uld had been watching her sex tape on those communication balls, either.

That had some interesting elements, like Daniel on his balcony. Between that episode and the Mephisto episode where you saw the address on the front of his building, we can probably figure out where Daniel lives and steal a bunch of spankin' cool artifacts.

They could've had a follow-up to the episode where they travel to the boy's home planet to find out who else in the galaxy is sending out teams of archeologists, which could've gone in some interesting directions for a Daniel-centric episode or two.

Let's do it.

Or better yet, dress up as Egyptians and take photos in front of the building as visiting Goa'uld.
