    Did she do Ishta before or after T'Pol?

    Broken Bow, 2001. Sacrifices, 2004.

    It's the delivery but also that she holds her face in exactly the same way.. this tension in the cheeks to show she's not happy. She did hold off on the twitching eyes that T'Pol spent a season doing, I kept expecting to see it. And yes I liked T'Pol fine, and I thought the portrayal of a flawed Vulcan barely holding it together was a good one.. but perhaps that's all she's got? Ishta's interesting though, her Xena gals are interesting, their struggle adds a lot to the Jaffa storyline and she's a nice match with Teal'c. So presumably she will soon die.

    Also, god bless Bra'tac he is always a fine inclusion to any episode and it's great to see him still with us as a recurring character 8 seasons in.

    Yea, Bra'tac always adds a star to an episode's rating. He's great in Once upon a Time also as Gepetto

    I liked him in a couple of season 1 episode of "Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles" as one of her old friends who could get her fake IDs.

    Hell, Tony Amendola was able to take that really subpar Continuum show and make it interesting, despite the fact that his character was so incredibly cliched. Now that's acting talent.

    Prometheus Unbound: What is this a frakking crossover?! (do you see what I did there?)

    Hammond: Dude, where's my Prometheus?

    Exactly WHY did Daniel Jackson take off all her clothes? Okay maybe that armor is a onesie full of uber powers. Yeah.

    Her outfit was supposed to be zat repellant, therefore Daniel had to remove it to take away any advantage she might have had. Otherwise, pointing a zat at her during the dinner scene would be meaningless.

    Wait. I think you skipped "Gemini", which is an important one.

    Gemini is the next one, on the next disc in the dvd set.

    I'm having a marathon tomorrow, hopefully. Of Stargate, not running.

    "Gemini" is a great ep!

    The order on the season eight DVDs was different to the airing order. For some reason they swapped around Gemini and Prometheus Unbound, and more reasonably they swapped around Citizen Joe and Threads so that they could keep the Reckoning two parter and Threads on the same disc, while just sticking Citizen Joe with the Moebius two parter on the last disc.

    Strange, my season 8 DVDs aren't like that at all. Gemini, Prometheus Unbound, Citizen Joe and Threads are in their proper spots, and the two parts of Reckoning are on seperate discs. Of course, I have the original release, the one which has the regular length (45 minutes) version of Threads as opposed to the longer one that originally aired. Does this make a difference?

    DVD Order is fine for B5 proper, but, for Crusade...

    I can't remember what I did with Crusade.. or whether it mattered. Just saying "Crusade" makes me want to do a rewatch though. But that's mainly because of the books.

    Hey Crusade and Caprica should form a support group for one season spin off failures.

    "My name is Caprica and I'm.. a dud. I admit I am powerless over the ratings."


    Gemini: Did not see the ending coming. Though never a huge replicator fan it's a great relaunch of the storyline. A little disturbed at Carter's decisions. I could blame it on her getting Carter-R's hand stuck in her head but she made the decision to let Carter-R do that. What is it with people wanting to trust their Doppelgangers? Well Janeway didn't but it seems a common impulse to have extra sympathy just because someone looks like you. Even weirder if it's not alternative timeline/universe you but a machine!! I mean really Carter.. I'm kind of disappointed here. Is it that all your friends are males? Did some latent girlfriend gene get triggered and you lost your head when you saw Carter-R in that gorgeous coat? Pictured yourself out shopping with her?

    And as to what O'Neill pictured.. :guffaw:

    Nothing beats the original order Firefly aired in. First episode was the last to air, oh my...

    It's Good to be King: The "guango" is a custard apple. A cute episode though I prefer Maybourne a little more rogue. Can't wait to see what they do with the time device.

    Damn, Girl...Break My Heart into tiny pieces AND STOMP ON THEM :wah:

    I'd Join them :alienblush:

    As far as Gemini goes, remember, it's been a while since Sam's seen the Doctor, and she's raising the child, so yea, I think if she glimpes a chance at a Sis-Mance with someone else, she might be vulnerable to the possibility

    I got the original season 8 DVD's with the same order that Wormhole has, which went by the order they were aired.

    The part I didn't like about It's Good to Be King is that Mayborne just didn't seem like a highly-trained, extremely dangerous, rogue intelligence operative in that episode. He seemed more like Gilligan or the Skipper, as if someone dropped the ball on his character continuity.

    So decisions. Full Alert is probably next, and Citizen Joe could follow that (the air order) or follow Threads.

    I like to watch Reckoning 1 & 2, Threads, and Mobius 1 & 2 in one big exciting lump, with lots of popcorn, but Citizen Joe could provide a breathing space (mostly a clip episode).
