    Who didn't see that one coming :rolleyes:

    I'm not overly fond of trapped in the game scenarios (other than Southpark's WOW ep LOL) and this one while perfectly okay was one of those eps I'll be unlikely to rewatch.

    Avatar was meant to tie into an SG-1 video game that was being developed for the X-Box (though cancelled before release). In fact, throughout the episode when everyone outside is monitoring Teal'c's progress in the simulator, the screen which shows a CG image of what's happening in the game from Teal'c's perspective is actual footage from the game.

    Wow, that's very interesting! And the game is pretty crap by today's standards :lol:

    Affinity:That was a cracker of an episode! I've been wanting to see how Teal'c did in his new apartment and wondering about Carter's cop and this episode focused on both those things as well as introducing an enemy. Great stuff.

    Best quote..

    Girl to Teal'c: My pipes are doing that thing again.

    Daniel Jackson immediately leaves.

    :lol:

    Convenant: Oh those nasty rogue people, I hope they explore them a bit more, get some closure. Otherwise they are getting a bit too boogie man, plopped into plots for mystery. Still, good ep and also tragic about Brian (who I thought was Alec's lover until they brought in the bit about Brian's family).

    I thought Brian and Alec were brothers?

    Really? They don't look anything alike! (yes I know this is television). I thought they had grown up together as friends. The Trust sure worked poor Brian over, he was terrified that they would go after his family :(

    Oh and Sindatur I have Charlie Jade now. At some point I'm going to do a power watch of it since it's only one season. Not this week though, I've got overseas relatives the whole week, messing with my viewing choices LOL

    On them being brothers, yea, they don't look alike, but, something in the dialogue made me believe they were brothers...I think

    Oh cool, on Charlie Jade, I hope you enjoy it. When you finish, I'll locate my thread (not a reliable episode by episode review), and dig you up the link someone posted for me to the outline for Season 2, if there had been one (though, as I previously mentioned, the S1 Finale works as a Series finale in the same way that... Oh, wait, that might be a slight indication of how S1 ends, forget I mentioned this part)

    They have different last names (Alec Colson, Brian Vogler) so I doubt they're brothers. Plus they speak with different accents. They're close friends who apparentally go as far back as childhood.

    teacake, I hope you keep doing these for the rest of SG-1! I haven't replied to this thread before (I think), but I've been reading it and I enjoy your little capsule reviews. :D

    I'm having a week of overseas relatives which has meant I can spend my paltry bit of time at home either posting or watching and since I am going insane I'm posting. As soon as it is over I'm back to hopefully power watching SG:1 which I miss :( I'm glad you enjoy the reviews RM, I enjoy everyone's discussions and feedback!

    I've been enjoying your reviews, too! I wish I'd done such a thread when I watched SG-1 a little over a year ago. It's fun to discuss the show with others as it develops.

    Sacrifices: Totally unnerved by how much Ishta sounds like T'Pol when she was deteriorating in season 3 on Vulcan crack. It is just weird to hear her speaking in exactly the same tones as she does when a Vulcan.. there were times when my brain was saying "that's like when she told Trip.."

    So I'll just say it. She's not a very good actor. But she does have her charms and an interesting face and I enjoyed watching her for the Trek connection. I suspect I would not be very kind I didn't have T'Pol to feel warm about here.

    I was very glad to get back the Jaffa storyline, I have missed the Goa'uld dramas! This was an interesting continuance of the Xena tribe's tribulations and brought in Baal to tie it in with what else has been going on in Goa'uld land.

    I'm going to assume the "Rite of Or'nok" was the bloke performing circumcision on himself on the eve of his wedding night.

    I enjoyed O'Neill suggesting a pinata in place of a ritual goat sacrifice :lol:

    Oh and little question.. all enemies are amassed at the gate making troubles.. why not just open it and send a bomb through?

    Teal'c was rather churlish this episode despite his sorta woman coming to visit. Guess I might feel that way if my teenager announced they were getting hitched.

    Endgame: Nice to see someone takes a different tack to Picard. Yes yes, the innocent.. but it's still very interesting. I'm betting the world Carter tried (successfully) to divert the symbiont death gas from was the one her father was on?

    I'm continually impressed by the tapestry of arcs in Stargate. They come, they go, the weave in and out.. it's a very rich series.

    And I'm wondering, Tok'ra disguised as Goa'uld.. if they get the opportunity to return to the Tok'ra tunnels do they keep up the vamp style or do they immediately don sacks and leave off the hot imperiousness?

    Sad that this one never got to show us.

    I'll admit, I was never particularly impressed with Jolene Blalock as T'Pol, but I did enjoy her as Ishta. And yet, I do recognize she delivered the exact saem performance in both roles, but for some reason I like Ishta more. *Shrug*

    I actually did like T'pol, Jolene Blalok's acting style (I guess, since Ishta was exactly the same delivery) works really well for a Vulcan, IMHO. So, I was able to appreciate Ishta, because I liked T'Pol, but, yea, the cold, emotionless Vulcan delivery doesn't quite work for a Jaffa/Goa'uld

    I noticed too how she played T'Pol and Ishta exactly the same way. I wonder if maybe Jolene did not understand what a Jaffa was. Maybe she just thought "I am playing a strong alien babe. Cool! I'll just do what I did with T'Pol since she was also a strong alien babe."
