Never been a fan of the Replicators arc I have to say; hope they are not back in series 7. I have always loved the comedy and the usually "dont take yourself seriously" attitude though some things surprise me (like the Replicators episode where they double crossed the poor lad....)...
Top show and also good on the eye - the Jaffa in particular but also one particular Tok'ra...whose identity ascaped me...
AH well....here is to series 8 - is there one?
Posted Jan 6, 2004 @ 10:24 AM
Jack seems to be a bit of a jerk. He's not very likable. I'm all for sarcasm, but he just takes it over the top. Unless that's the point of his character....
Daniel is hella fine! Not to mention very intelligent.
Teal'c is awesome. All the cliches: loyal, strong, brave, nice body. Oh, um, I added that last one.
Sam? I don't know what to make of her yet. Enthusiastic, kind of a genius, a tad bit annoying, but totally likable.
About the story: I'd seen the movie, so the good guy/bad guy struggle wasn't too hard to follow. Although, I'm a bit confused as to who the Tokra are. As far as the Jack/Sam ship, I can't even see the dock, much less the ship sailing. Not that I don't want the ship to sail, but I just don't see it.
Also, I'm confused as to how many seasons have actually been made and shown. What season is Sci-Fi starting on Friday?

The Tokra are basically go'aulds who have broken away from the mainstream and only inhabit willing hosts. They work as an underground resistance. They are Earth's allies, but there isn't complete trust between the two groups.

As nqllisi said, Jack's character can really fluctuate, depending on the season. He was a lot more three-dimensional and interesting the first three or four seasons, but in some of the later episodes, he seems to have dumbed down for the comic relief, which was a pity.
We are now in the seventh season -- the season started last summer, and then there was something like a five month haitus, so the episode on Friday will be the first episode of the second half of the seventh season.
SciFi isn't helping with the confusion, since they are showing episodes from different past seasons at 6 p.m. weekdays, and then repeats from the sixth and/or seventh season on Mondays, and then the current season on Fridays. Very weird programming.
A good place to catch up is Gateworld, which has synopses of all the past episodes (I don't agree with their ratings, however). And you can always ask questions here....

I hate that Sci-Fi scheduling. They did it with Farscape and it really messed me up. Why do they do that?

Sam/Daniel? Also yuck, for reasons even I can't describe, but it IS better than the whole WackoJacko/StupidSam pairing.
And why kill Janet, the only sensible one out of all of them? *sighs*
And poor Teal'c. The man has NEVER gotten laid or even kissed, far as I know. I mean, technically, he did have that worm/larve/whatever to keep him company......I betcha that at the end of the season, sammie will "come to her senses" and go after HIM. Then she'll have completed her rounds.
It's really all a pity.
This is all a matter of MY opinion, of course..
And yes, I AM in a bad mood. Sorry for the vehemence.
Edited to say to Becky and Dani:
Like Jonas, but thought he was kinda....fake acting till that eppy with the frozen chick that healed everybody (sorry, forgot the name.) Started liking him then.

Possibly because they have a very brother/sister type relationship, so thinking about the two of them together romantically seems vaguely incestuous.
Has anyone here seen 'Grace' yet? I know it's already aired in the UK, so I'm hoping we can get a bit of discussion going instead of waiting until it airs in America. I, for one, want to know about the Sam/Jack kiss that was supposed to happen in this episode. Someone please tell me that it was a dream or a hallucination or something similar - if it turns out it was real Sam'n'Jack twu wuv stuff, I think I may have to strangle someone.

He had a wife and a fling with that Jaffa Priestess whose symbiont went into Methos. And most recently Chris Judge wrote himself an episode where he romanced T'Pol.

Since I got all the way to today and only just now remembered, "Hey, it's back on tonight on Sci-Fi," this is a friendly heads up for anyone else who may have completely spaced it =D.

- What was with the non-flirting flirting moments between Sam and Jack? I mean, really , that was kind of weird..
-Hurrah for Enrico Colantoni...he and Jack give good banter. Although I got the feeling he was playing Dennis Hopper playing Burke.
- Nice "Oh holy shit " moment with Anubis's army...I sort of feel sorry for Jonas though, since now he's responsible ( but not really ) for giving Anubis a big big advantage.
-Favorite moment? "Jack...what the hell are you doing here?" You think you're about to die, then you turn around and there's your team leader who you assumed was in a whole nother country and a bunch of dead bodies...yeah , I think that would be my reaction.
My god, MS is buff....grroowr.

I tuned in late, though, so I was a little lost, but it was just good to have my show on again!
Posted Jan 9, 2004 @ 10:48 PM
"What is hurt?"
Hee...I always love the Bra'tac / Teal'c chemistry.
My only less than favorite part? Bug-eyed!Scenery-chewing!RevolutionaryGuy. Too over-the-top to be truly intimidating.
Although, he gave us sweaty tough Daniel, so it's all good. ...
"Are you sure it's off?"
"Yeah...well, it's not glowing, so we think it's off..Daniel , you wanna hold it?"

The Jack-and-Burke backstory was fairly interesting.
I loved the Daniel plot- he got to be strong, smart, and supersexy. Loved that he held out against torture *and* figured out how to escape *and* saved what's-his-name.
I loved Jack rescuing Daniel. I thought MS played that scene very well.
And, yes, MS was very... growww.
Posted Jan 9, 2004 @ 11:51 PM
I dunno -- the whole thing with Jack & his old crony sorta irritated me. I had heard that we were going to get some of Jack's backstory, but I thought it was going to be Jack's backstory -- not what was going on with some old friend whom we had never met before, and whom frankly I didn't care much about. Oh, I had no problem with the actor, and I rather liked the banter, but I really didn't care how long he'd been hanging out in Honduras, or why he'd killed some guy whom we've never heard about until now. So that part sort of lost me.
I expect a new series about that guide -- he's obviously some kind of alien life. He lies around for days in the jungle, doesn't grow a beard, doesn't need water, doesn't bleed even though he's been shot, and is quite happy to put off being rescued as long as he'll eventually be paid.
Daniel, all dirty & sweaty & muscled -- very nice. Yes, very nice indeed. And I loved his dazed "What are you doing here?" when he saw Jack, and his sudden realization that he looked slightly ridiculous holding that rock.
I rather dislike ship (actually, I dislike both the ship as in Jack/Sam relationship, and the ship as in big honkin' space ship -- I'd rather concentrate on Stargate stories, thank you very much. But I digress...). I did see the shippiness in the two scenes with Sam & Jack -- and I must admit, they irritated me. The first one, especially -- Jack announced that he was going to get Daniel as though Daniel was around the corner at the library, and was late coming home for dinner. I think they were trying to play the underlying sexual tension underneath the words, but it came off as though the words didn't matter -- which meant that Daniel didn't really matter. Not what the script or the actors intended, I'm sure, but that's how the reading seemed to me.

And no bugs were crawling on him either.

It seems kind of weird that they're going to try to make a weapon out of something that regenerates life.

Didn't seem too weird to me. I mean, now that they've got it, Sam can analyze it ,(hopefully) find its weakness, and make a weapon which exploits it.
With all that talk about Egeria, was anyone thinking that maybe , somehow, that was Egeria? I don't remember the Pangar episode very well, but perhaps she survived, was goauld'napped by agents of Anubis, and they managed to revive her and brainwash her? Or am I spinning my wheels here?

Loved Daniel hopping away from the device.
The guide who should have been dead in the woods?? Either there's more story to him (which, considering Jack and Burke weren't surprised at his good condition, I don't think so) or it was just bad costuming/acting. I'm going with the latter.
Loved Jacob and Bra'tac silently working together to get rid of the supersoldier. I was kind of surprised that the rings would reintegrate in open space, though.
I'll preserve my little shippy dance for a more ship-friendly venue. *g* It wasn't much, but I'll take it.
