My votes and opinions:
Beneath the Surface
Prophecy
Point of No Return
Evolution, Part 2
Entity
Smoke and Mirrors
1969
Paradise Lost

undomesticated_equine: Very good comments (all of them); very enlightening. ITA about the eps you listed for Daniel - can't believe I completely forgot about Crystal Skull, although it isn't my favorite just because of the atrocious SFX. But there are only two scenes in Stargate where I remember being almost literally ROFL. WoO, when we first see what Teal'c goes through at the beginning of the loop (the build-up to that was just perfect!), and Crystal Skull, when we see Nick in the foreground saying "Ooh yah waying waying wey tayil," and out of focus, in the background, Daniel is mouthing the words. Again, perfect build-up.)
Just for clarification - about what did you know what I meant? I've written quite a bit in the last couple days. :)

However, there are so many eps that I’m not sure of… I think I have to re-watch some… and possibly create a list of my faves/least faves… it seems a lot of people on this thread have chosen their votes based on some sort of list… I’m just not that organised!
Hee. I did it one weekend when I realized once a few hated episodes were voted off, I'd have no clue what to vote for (or what episode went with what title). So I made a cheat sheet of titles and brief description of which ep it was, then listed them in a way of I thought X was better than Y, now Z, yeah, not as good as X, but better than Y, etc. until all 7 seasons were done. Then I try and erase the eps from my list as each round (with varying results, heh).

golfbooy, I'll see your Smoke and Mirrors and raise you Prometheus. A reporter has information on an unknown substance so they let her and her camera crew (apparently without SEARCHING their camera equipment for ZATS) into a top secret government facility. Of course once the hijackers take over the ship, the air force lets the hijackers get away with this AND gives them a Goa'uld and Col. Q. Kickin' Sam and Major Davis aren't enough to save this ep from being the last of my original hate list to still be here. Ack! To be fair, Smoke & Mirrors is currently first alternate on the list, but due to Teal'c's awesome apprehension & interrogation scenes, the Jack/Kinsey scene, and a shout out to Foothold, an ep I love, it's not quite on my voting radar.

Point of View

the dancer of spaz: Trade you Entity for Scorched Earth. Seriously - I'm not all that intent on getting Entity off yet, but Scorched Earth is #4 on my list of best episodes of all time. Of all the episodes, that one's the epitome of one of the best things about Stargate - the moral issues without a clear right or wrong answer. You can understand and sympathize with both points of view. Afterwards, I was left wondering for quite some time just what I think should have been done in that situation, and I still haven't arrived at a conclusion. It really made me think about the value of life and how to place one life above another when both sides are blameless. Plus, it shows the entire team at some of their finest. And if it goes anytime soon, I'm going to be very, very, very miserable... :(

Capt. Voronokova: Good points about Prometheus. I'm going to have to check its position in my list; it's probably too high. I did find it exciting, but you're right about the plot holes.

Katherine, I agree with you regarding Scorched Earth, it's a great ep, Jack having to take the desicion to destroy a civilization vs another, ordering his team to go against their values... great, great, ep... I do have to ask, why 1969? I love that ep, I thought it was so funny, Jack being interrogated, customes, time travel, young Hammond, early Catherine and Cassandra showing an unkown future where they clearly are dominating the secrets of the gates...

Dancer of Spaz - you talked me into leaving Entity off this round - it was kind of a toss-up with several others anyway. Any chance you'll reconsider on Scorched Earth? I really liked that one (except for the wimpy ending).
Yeah Prometheus had several plot holes but......big ship.....ice cream......and Thor! Okay, not much but I'm not voting it off yet. ;)
Someone asked about Proving Ground. I didn't totally hate it but it was all earth based, was fairly boring in parts and included the annnoying Hailey - so that's why it was on my list. The only cool part was the goa'uld voice device.
Lonestar - thanks SO much - now I'm going to have to get my brain scrubbed to remove the mental picture I have of you. :p Which makes me wonder - I bet Daniel and Elaine would make the wild dancing couple. For some reason I don't have Daniel pictured as very smooth on the old dance floor.

Katerine and keshou- "Scorched Earth", eh? Interesting reasoning behind why you like it... You've sold me. Katerine, next round, I'll take that and raise you an extra vote for "Smoke and Mirrors", if you can lay off "Paradise Lost". Mind you, I like Agent Barrett. :P PL had snarky, high Maybourne; Jack on the run from Maybourne; insane Jack/Maybourne friendship; and the first heavy inklings of Sam/Teal'c friendship. From a general fan's point of view, you could take that scene as a sign that neither of them was over Daniel's death. :D I'm seriously too attached to "Entity" right now (especially after that crazy comeback last round), and I'm not cruel enough to ask a non-shipper to stop voting for "Beneath the Surface". So... Whaddya say? ;)

AND REMEMBER... "Lifeboat", "Forever in a Day", "Divide and Conquer" and "Threshold" are all up for grabs within the next ten rounds! I'm open to further negotiations. :D

Round 53 is done, and the votes are tallied. :)

Still more new people! Welcome! :) Hope you enjoy the tournament, and keep voting! :)

Spiderqueen: Welcome! To answer your question, yes, you're most certainly welcome to make comments about episodes, and to take part in the ongoing episode discussions in here, if you like. Just play nice, and please put all of your commentary in the same post as your votes (except for people helping others out with voting errors, which is always welcome, I really prefer that people stick to one post per round. It just makes the tallying easier). That's all, and I hope you have fun!

sg-1fanintn: Could you do me a favor and quote the following (everything between here and "apologies to those who didn't get their votes counted") in your next notification posts? I want to make sure everybody sees it. Thanks :)

This is just a general announcement. If you've been participating in the tournament, and intend to keep participating, you HAVE to look at these "Round Results" posts, and you have to READ at least this top section (above "And here are the results"). Because this is where I post the official notifications of rule changes. It's also where I post messages to individuals who didn't get their votes counted for the last round because of errors, and I explain how those errors can be corrected.

There are two easy ways to read these posts:
1) Follow the thread. Pretty self-explanatory. User Control Panel is your friend. ;) This way, you not only catch these posts, but, if you choose to, you can also read and participate in the episode commentary/critiques/discussion, which IMO is 95% of the fun of this thread. :)

2) Check out the initial post in this thread. This post always has a link to the most recent round results. If you've missed a round or two, you can use the "Past Round Results" link to view the results of the last round you participated in.

Thanks. :)

As always, apologies to those who didn't get their votes counted:

Point of View

:( about Past and Present. Wasn't my favorite by any means, but I thought that ep did a very nice job of touching on the subject of the nature of evil and redemption.

LOL4JACK: Nice comments, especially regarding Scorched Earth. :) (wonderful, wonderful episode).
Re 1969: This ep is one of those that I think I kind of enjoyed at the time that I was watching it, but I don't really remember much about it (except bad outfits and a really bad German accent), and though I've only seen it once, I don't feel a particular urge to see it again. Wouldn't mind seeing it again - I'm just not going to go out of my way to do so. It's gotten to the point where episodes like that are starting to get added to my list - the only eps still on this list that I actively disliked were Beneath the Surface and Evolution Part 2.

Speaking of Beneath the Surface: This episode features four total strangers who bear a passing resemblance to SG-1, but whom I found rather unlikable. And the supporting characters were equally unlikable. And the lighting...

the dancer of spaz: Thanks for reconsidering Scorched Earth. My sanity appreciates the saving. :) Have removed Entity from my votes. Don't care about either "Smoke and Mirrors" or "Paradise Lost" that much, though - actually, I think I'm going to have to check the ep summaries before I can even remember what "Paradise Lost" was about... And since I'm currently mostly voting for eps that I found forgettable, this unfortunately qualifies. Again, don't care about Smoke and Mirrors enough, sorry :)

Katherine, Thanks for your comments... regarding BTS, I can understand that for you it is about 4 strangers, as you know I'm a shipper and incurable romantin and as so for me it is one of the most beatifull ep, they recognize "feelings" for each other... this ep comes short after Divide & Conquer, where they both admitted having feelings for each other, being in the mines and not knowing who they are, they allow themselfs to fell for each other, the look on their faces at the end when the realize who they are, the regs... and she calls him "Sir" is heatbreaking.

What GW and belonging to the forum and some threads has given me is the hability to watch SG-1 and have a completly different view from the first time I saw it... that is why for example the first time I saw Citizen Joe, I thought it was OK, with some funny moments... now it's one of my fav eps, just because of all those bits and pieces TPTB placed in their for us... evey time I watch it I'm looking to see what else can I catch and I just love it

Small Victories

*sigh* I've already explained why I liked Past and Present, but I just saw it again last week and, really, I can't figure out why people don't like it.

I see that The Tomb is plummeting down the list--what gives? Can someone tell me why this episode is any good? It really is one of my least favorites.

In looking over the votes last round, I see that two of my favorites, Learning Curve and Prophecy are almost ready to go (with Scorched Earth close behind--please reconsider!). (Katerine--I saw Metamorphosis the other day and I see what you mean: Jonas & Nirrti--seriously creepy. I mean, even if she wasn't a goa'uld--way too old and nasty for him). I think I can understand why people don't like Learning Curve, but what is wrong with Prophecy?

I was thinking about Learning Curve and I noticed that in several episodes dealing with children, they almost always gravitate towards Jack. Charlie from Show and Tell (the Retou), that kid from Revisions, this girl from Learning Curve (can you tell I have a terrible memory for names?), Ska'ara, even Cassandra (in Singularity he gives her a dog). Why do they have such a connection to Jack? I like that he does not close himself off from children in spite of what happened to his son. It seems that he tries to show the children the joys and wonders of being a child; he tries to protect them; he tries to make their life better in any way that he can. When the inevitable happens and the children must leave (as they always must), he resists, but ultimately lets them go (with sadness, but not resignation--rather recognition that that is how it must be). Each has left a mark on him in their own way and I often wonder if he thinks about them and wonders how they are doing. Perhaps it is good for him to let them go and know that they are still living and functioning in their respective societies--unlike his son who is gone.

About Learning Curve--it was such an interesting premise. A totally different way of ordering society and the role of knowledge-gaining and -giving. It tried to show a clash of cultures and misunderstandings that arise when there is such a vast difference in the treatment of different segments of society. In our multi-cultural age, there are still some things we deem wrong, no matter what the culture or society. It seemed this show was trying to explore that and perhaps trying to show that context, culture, society, and roles can be vastly different, but not necessarily totally bad. And when this society is shown a different way, they do not reject it out of hand, but look on in wonder as a small portion of their culture is beginning to be transformed. This episode reminded me of the ST:TNG episode with Chad Allen as a teenager (from a strict, disciplinarian society) who attaches to Picard and ultimately stabs him in frustration and is torn by societal differences and finally returns to his society leaving Picard with a fuller understanding of the differences in cultures across the galaxy--all is not as it first seems (I liked that episode, too).

Oh good grief! I've rambled on way too long--sorry!

I have a shoddy memory sometimes. ;) I consider Scorched Earth and The Other Side to be equals. They both deal with intense, moral dilemmas that aren't ever truly resolved. Also, I understand why you're voting off PL, if you found it forgettable. That's normally my reasoning behind my votes. If I can't even remember what the ep's about, and once the plot is told to me I STILL don't get it... It's gone. :D

Hi,

Just found this thread and thought that I'd add my 2 cents -- hope I did this right :)

Round 54

1. Torment of Tantalus
2. Serpent's Song
3. Forever in a Day
4. Point of No Return
5. Threshold
6. The Changeling
7. Lifeboat
8. Allegiance <-- yep, missed this the first time


Saw that Torment of Tantalus didn't get any votes last time -- it's not a bad ep (like Red Sky bad -ugh) but for some reason I find it unwatchable.

BTW -- Undomesticated_equine, thanks for pointing out that I only did 7 the first time -- you'd think that I could count to 8 but it was a long day ;)

This is so hard to do, I am always finding reasons to take something off my list. Then when I put something new on I find reasons to take it off again and so on… everyone makes such good points about why they like or dislike an ep… I am so indecisive.

Katerine & Warmbeachbrat: I took Past and Present off my list last round, after our discussion a while back and after I re-watched it the other day… however it still got voted off. Damn.

Warmbeachbrat: Great comments. I enjoyed The Tomb purely for the horror genre clichés and the action. I thought it was well filmed. Can’t remember minute details of the plot and whether there were any big honkin’ holes or not. Plot is often the first thing sacrificed for action, but I can *sometimes* forgive that if the action is hot and plausible.

Judging by your comments you tend to like the more deep and meaningful stuff, which is great. You seem to have good insight into human emotions. I enjoyed readin’ your analysis of Learning Curve. I, too, like the interaction Jack has built with children in the eps you have mentioned. Also, the idea of Learning Curve was intriguing. One of the downfalls with Stargate, I find, is the lack of cultural differences on different worlds. I know it’s because most of the civilisations are human, but even on earth there are vast differences between nations and people. I don’t think they have really explored this enough. Although, I can understand it being pretty difficult to do in a forty minute TV episode.

I also liked Prophecy, it was a good Jonas ep & Scorched Earth was interesting to me, again because of the differing values between the races.

I don’t think there are any eps left that I dislike!

:( Forever in a Day and Learning Curve are slatted for the chopping block with Scorched Earth not far behind. No point in trying to save them now, but I’m just sad to see them about to buy it so early and especially before plenty of other episodes. :(

Point of No Return – Why is this episode still hanging around? I like the episode as entertainment but there is nothing profound or special about it, imo. Wormhole X-treme (one of my favorite eps) is either loved or hated, yet it had the exact same character (Martin) as this episode and it went out too many rounds ago to even count. :P

Katerine, you vote Paradise Lost ? wha..?? :eek: I thought that is one stylish eps, the story, the lighting, directing, the enviroment, the music. And Harry & Jack interaction are at their best. Jack was at the brink of his tight-rein self-control and the only thing that safe him probably because he was not eating aragula as much as Harry (he ate more fish :D ) It was so easy for Jack to give up and give in (like Harry) but he hang on to the hope that SG-1 would get him out of there like in Abyss.

As for Past and Present, I just couldn't buy that Linnea's moral turnaround was due to a whopping case of amnesia. I won't even get into the whole human nature vs. environment discussion----Linnea's conversion just didn't wash with me. I kept thinking that if the right opportunity presented itself, she'd be off like a shot decimating even more planets, justifying her actions in ways that made perfect sense to her..... (I do believe that people are able to turn their lives around with the right help, but not in this particular case. To me, it's like saying that Hitler could have become a compassionate champion of the people if only he could have experienced amnesia.....) Also found it slightly disturbing that Daniel could be so easily beguiled by an intelligent and pretty face so soon after Sha're's traumatic death----what were the writers thinking?

*what? huh? no ice cream scene in Prometheus? Guess I'm smashing the good bits of Unnatural Selection in there to make it better. :p
Adding Singularity this time around - wonderful stuff for AT/Sam but I was never a huge fan of the Cassie storyline. Prometheus may be next, now that I know there's no ice cream involved. :)
Have to say I'm with Lonestar. The episode that I'm surprised about is Point of No Return. Earth-based and Martin is almost as annoying as Felger. ;) Some nice bits with Jack and Teal'c ("Murray!") but otherwise I don't see why this one's hanging in there. *

I have to admit that I haven't seen every episode, and I don't want to judge on the ones I haven't seen, unless I read their transcripts.
So, for the moment, I'll be voting for the second part of Season 2, Seasons 3, first part of Season 4, and Seasons 6 and 7. I am currently watching season 4 in my cable system, so I will be adding votes for this season as I see them. I also saw seasons 6 and 7 in another channel... what a mess, isn't it?! But I love the series so much, that I take what I can get...

Yeah......I too am worried about Kate. I hope she's okay. I've been coming everyday, and it's still Round 54. May be she got caught up in something in RL, and just haven't had a chance to go online.

Hope you're okay, Kate. :)

I don't recall her saying anything about a vacation... I'd think she'd have let us know if she planned to be away from GW. Probably her computer crashed, or something came up unexpectedly.

Katerine, hope you're ok. :)

I've been getting a bit worried about her too...from what I've read from the beginning of the game she's always been right on the spot with updating each round. Hope nothing's happened to her.

Hope you're okay Katherine, wherever you are! Sending prayers your way!

I did a little "research" yesterday and found out that on the evening of Aug. 18th (when she was last online) there were a series of tornadoes that caused a lot of property damage in a large part of Wisconsin. Her public profile says she lives in Wisconsin. If she lives in one of those areas, maybe she's just dealing with the aftermath of those storms, like damage to her house or personal belongings (or those of a relative, maybe)...... I'll bet we hear from her soon.

Hopefully Katrina is safe and sound but I wonder why she hasn't borrowed a friends, neighbors or the nearest library's computer to send us a message as to what is going on.
I'd hate to lose this thread since it's gone so far. :( I suggest another take over the responsibility ( Unfortunately, I haven't the time) of this thread until she comes back or if need be because of the rules and regs, begin a new thread but stay where this left off? I'm sure she'd understand resume leadership. She was doing such a great job!

Any takers or should we vote 'yea' or 'nay' for this idea? Of course after the voting if the majority agrees, we'd still need some else to volunteer to stand in for katrina.

IMO, I would rather we wait for Katerine, until she pop-back in or formally hand-over it to someone else if she can't do it anymore, it's her baby after all.

I will volunteer to keep this tournament moving forward until Katerine returns, if you all agree. I can't keep up to her level of statistics, but I can count votes and keep people informed of eliminations, and she can catch up and take back over when she is able to return.

I will leave it up to you... I don't want to step on anyone's toes, especially Katerine's, as this is her baby.

I wonder if she's where the hurricane is. I wonder if may be she had to evacuate, or something. Anyone know if she's in the Gulf coast area?

Yes , she lives in Wisconsin which is where they had a lot of tornado action about the same time she disappeared from GW. Hopefully she 's ok.

I'm praying for 'everyone' down south in that monster hurricane's path.
This is the big one! The one they've been dreading for over a decade.
New Orleans is way below sea level. It's like a bowl waiting to be filled.

The offer stands... My first preference, of course, would be for Katerine to return and take back over. I hope she is safe. In the interim, I'll do my part to keep this thread active.

As for Katrina, I'm watching hurricane coverage right now. Category 5 = scary stuff. :( Stay safe, everyone.

I agree. We should wait for Katerine. Eleven days is a long time, but if power is out in her area, or her ISP took a big hit, it's possible she just can't get online now. I'm sure we'll hear from her soon.

Well, I did a little bit more of research, Katerine has a website, but she doesn't update much...

She also has a forum and her latest log-in was on Aug 23rd, her latest login in GW was Aug 18th... :o

She also has a Yahoo Instant Messaging but every time I try the link in through GW my IE freezes....

Yep. I'm thinking Lost City is gonna kill when it comes down to it. And, if S8 had been in the running, Reckoning would be in to the end as well. In fact, that would be a very close, very difficult running. :P

Your location is AT? :confused: *scratches head* What does that mean?
