    While this thread is still open/active, I thought I'd use it to comment on just having finished the SG-1 S9 premiere three-parter. This might seem like sacrilege, but I actually like Colonel Mitchell and General Landry way more than O'Neill and Hammond (don't get me wrong, those two were great characters, but there's just something about Beau Bridges and Ben Browder that really makes their characters 'click' for me). I also love that they used Vala to briefly fill Sam's role in the story while Amanda Tapping was on maternity leave, as she really fits well into the whole SG-1 team structure despite being, at this point, a rogue freelancer. It was also great to see Vala and Daniel reunited because of the incredible chemistry that exists between Claudia Black and Michael Shanks. The level of indirect crossover between Atlantis and these eps was also great, as was the introduction of the Ori.

    As an aside, I was a little bit miffed that I'd apparently been told the wrong order in which to watch Avalon Pts 1 and 2 and Origin in relation to the SGA episode The Intruder, but, upon starting to watch the latter, I realized that I'd freaked out for no reason.

    The secrets part, no. The racial suicide part, yes. Who knows what those crazy grey guys will do?

    Yeah, we're all pretty torn up. A friend found him dead in his kitchen. Maybe an olive pit got him. We always figured it would be a croc or a brown snake given that he lived for the hunt, or a moonshine still explosion.

    You mean they don't know the cause of death yet?

    I wish we'd seen some satisfying not-AU consummation with this. Because it really stood out as a relationship full of potential greatness.

    What a beautiful picture. I can't imagine how emotional that must have been for Judge, Shanks and Tapping, after working together for the better part of ten years. And of course Black and Browder had already been through all of that together before. I like how they're kind of off to the side, letting the others have their moment, but Shanks is still reaching out to them.

    Yeah he's reaching out and thinking, "I better touch Claudia NOW because they're never going to let me do it again."

    Nobody has any idea. Some of my fellow chatters made contact with some of his friends in Queensland so we can get an update when the autopsy results come back.

    The last scene of the series I believe, the end of Unending.

    Yeah, Daniel/Vala was great. I haven't watched most of the series, but what I saw of them was nice.

    Beautiful. :)
