No comments on this one?

Aaron Boch (sp) is one character I wish they would revisit.

I think it may have been Aris Boch. His race and himself would be interesting to see again. Although, I doubt its likely. The natural (?) abilities he seemed to have would be a great advantage, although his dependency on the substance he gets from the Goa'uld may be his end. With the current (Season 7/8) state of the Goa'uld it is probably extremely difficult for him to collect that substance.

Wasn't Aris Bach human, though?

The episode was kind of vague on this point because he appears human, but is apparently different enough for the Goa'ould to not be able to use him as a host.

I'd like to see them revisit this.

When Carter treats his wound, his blood is yellow or something I think.

Roshna does look a lot like tretonin to me...

That would explain the dependency of Boch's race on this thing.

And the coolest thing about this episode? Sam "Flash Gordon" Jones was a guest star.

I'd been wondering for years what he'd been up to. I just saw him last week at a Star Trek con. :D

I liked the Aris Boch character, would love to see him again. And one of my favorite quotes comes from this episode too. When he calls Carter 'Captain', and she says well, actually, I am a Major now. And he says "Oh, well, how important. I'll inform the galaxy." That still makes me laugh every time I watch this episode!

I liked the Aris Boch character, would love to see him again.

As would I, I liked the actor who portrayed him. I´m very fond of this episode in general, lots of humorous scenes.
Like this little exchange:

Boch: Dr Jackson... If you don´t mind, treating my wound.
Daniel: I´m an archeologist.
Boch: I know. But you´re also a doctor.
Daniel: Of archeology...

And that little quarreling bit going on between Jack and Daniel, when they´re trying to open the hidden entrance. Plus, the following scene where they´re trying to shut down the countdown. Loved Jack and his matter-of-factly:
Daniel? Would you come here a moment?, when he discovers the... crystal thingy. And when he walks up to the door and says: Oh, Teal´c... Would these ships have any kind of destruct mechanism?

I really enjoyed this episode,and I'd love to see Aris Boch appear again .
I always wondered about his people . The idea of a race immune to Goa'uld symbiotes ,but enslaved by the Roshna, was enough to catch my interest.
Aris,himself,was played to perfection,IMO ! :D

August 13th, 2004, 12:41 PM
I luv this episode. I just watched it on DVD.
Aris was great all the lines were great.
It was little silly of Jack to throw the knife when daniel who was going slower than it hit the shield.
The best bit IMHO was the "tacs" conversation.

T: Tacs
Jack: Tac'nikatal?
T: Tac'unittakamikatron (of sumthing like that)
All: :confused:
T: Tacs.

The way T says "tacs" the 2nd time is grea as is the expression on his face.

I don't know how much (if any) of the comics and books are considered canon but there is an Aris Boch comic book listed in comics section. Storyline sounds pretty cool too.

I loved the looks of SG-1 when Aris demonstrated that the zats didn't work on him and rubbed it in by saying, "Ooohh, that tickles." He's so obnoxious. It would be interesting to see if a future episode brings Aris back to address the roshna problem.

I was wondering that too. Those would be so cool. And why don't Goa'uld use them. They would be very handy in defending key locations such as Stargates.

I hope they do. Aris is a sweet guy who can probably kick some serious Goa'uld butt.

I found this episode very amusing! Many great lines from various characters.

Aris Boch was oddly appealing and annoying at the sime time. I still don't know whether I like him alot.

Seeing the new technology was cool as always.

Aris Boch
March 14th, 2005, 09:23 PM
Hey, can anyone tell I'm an Aris Boch fan. I loved this ep. Its a favourite for me and some of the funniest lines ever are uttered in this episode. Aris Boch had a great albeit bizzare interaction with the team. Rob Cooper did well.

I don't know if any else has noticed this but there was no stargate in this episode at all :eek: Not even one KAWOOSH! :( That said it was still a great episode I'd wish they'd bring Aris Boch back :cool:

This was not one of my fav episodes. Certain bits were amusing (Dr. of archeology, and I love the "found something" at the beginning). Aris just kinda got on my nerves for most of the episode. I agree, his race being immune to Goa'uld was a big plothole, but given the state of things now, I'm not sure it makes sense to revisit it.

You think he would at least be mentioned at some point. Is there something against his character to not have him show again?

Why would Cooper write this character in then never have him feature after that?

He was funny. Seemed really American though for an alien. "I wasn't the brightest in school." You hear more about the Unas than you do Aris Boch and his people. And the Goa'uld used him and others like him to get some of their work done. Wouldn't he at least approach SG-1 and tell them they're running him out of business?

This episode was very funny, it made me laugh pretty much every scene. The character of Boch was humourous as well as interesting. It was great to see a cheerful baddy with a sense of humour for a change, and the team's reaction to his sarcasm was hilarious. The plot was a little dodgy - for example giving up Teal'c to the goa'uld seems a very bad idea for security reasons alone - but the jokes more than compensated.

Favourite line?

ARIS BOCH : Oh, uh, Dr Jackson. I was lying to you before. The price on your head is much more than a day’s rations. Actually the Goa’uld want to see you dead as much as anyone for figuring out the stargate.

DANIEL : Thank you. That... doesn’t make me feel any better.

They could use him again since most of the gould are gone now, we could find him on a planet with his son, or people. And then they could be new allies against a new ememy.

I could just cry when I realize from reading this thread that the majority of you are too young to have seen Sam J. Jones as the title character in the extremely campy 1980 fantasy/scifi cult favorite Flash Gordon. :D IMO that's where the real humor comes from in this episode - from Boch's snarky behavior to his outlandishly over-the-top costume - it's like one long insider-humor joke. :p

*Seshat now feels extremely old, but takes comfort in being very well informed.*

Ok, I remember the 1980's campy film Flash Gordon.....I must have seen it on TV. :rolleyes: Are you saying the lead character in the movie was Aris Boch? If so, I'm really SURPRISED.

Anywho....I enjoyed Deadman Switch. Althought the plot, at times, was contrived and a few of the plot "twists" were a tad obvious, however, the great lines more than made up for it. I think this episode was a great stand alone, but if the actor is still available, Aris Boch would be great in the upcoming season. I hate loose ends, and it would be nice to see if he and his people ever made it through rehab (sorry, just a little joke there). :S

Great episode, really enjoyed this one. As has already been said, a lot of the best humourous lines come from here.

Aris was well portrayed and did a great job - his character is just so enjoyable, believable and has that little extra something. Especially enjoyed his view that the humans aren't the centre of the univrse (when they say they haven't heard of the person, and when Sam says about being a Major now)

It's just a shame a lot of the developed ideas don't seem to have been reused or even commented on - the roshna, the tacs, even some minor comment about Aris.

Perriman33
August 7th, 2005, 11:06 PM
I really enjoyed this one, the only problem I have is that at no point did I feel SG1 was in any danger. The bounty-hunter was a good character and got on well with jack. It's a shame they didn't meet again or follow up on his immunity to blending.

Ascendant
August 30th, 2005, 01:46 PM
This was a nice bubblegum pop episode: not much to it. Boch provided the only interesting costume and the only set (his ship). He was a cool, unexpected character though - I really like the interaction between him and Jack...finally a match for Jack's sarcastic wit.

I also loved the pained expression on Tealc's face after he pronounces the full name of the tacs. Correct me if I'm wrong, but did we see a similar device in the Gate-station in the end of "2010"? It's not from the same civilization and it seems to be less powerful, but it's awfully familiar.

Still, they didn't have a "concept" for this show, just a bounty hunter and a Tok'ra. Good thing it's funny. :D

OK, watched this episode again, and I have to admit, it gets better with repeated viewing. The character of Aris Boch was well written and acted and the whole story of roshna should have been pursued in other episodes, if not the actual character himself. Maybe it still could......hmmmmm.;)

I agree with you Maybourne, Deadmans Switch is a truly great episode and its a shame they never re-introduced Aris Boch in any other episodes!. I rank this episode in my top 5 all time favorites, every time someone comes up with a new favorites list thread for SG episodes (dozens over the years) I always rank these as my favorites.....

I just watched this ep for the first time in a while and I'd forgotten just how funny muchof the dialogue. I burst out laughing with the whole 'tac' conversation and Teal'c, Daniel and Jack's expressions.
It's one of the funniest I've seen in a while, which surprised me, because I'm sure I didn't like it much the last time I watched it!

There are some great lines in this ep, from everyone.
At first I wasn't sure what to make of Aris. I was confused, is he arrogant or really cool? (he was also very American for an alien) I never realised he was ol' Flash Gordon. He has changed over the years (duh!)

Too bad there was never a follow up to this. By the later seasons I imagine it's getting harder to get a steady supply of Roshna, (and a long lasting gou'ald to work for!) It would be a good plot-convergence if the Roshna was actually Tretonin!

Man! The kids and I adore this episode. From Daniel's "Found something", right through his "Thanks. That doesn't make me feel any better". It was nice when the writers and producers finally felt confident enough to more than hint at the humour. This is where I feel they took their first big leap into all out silliness (well...1969 was pretty fun, too) and it worked beautifully. Sam Jones was a wonderful choice and I agree with the other post that said you are making us feel old when you don't know him as Flash Gordon. I suppose that will change some now that the new Flash Gordon series is on. Maybe more people will be curious about the old movie.

More faves from Deadman's Switch:

-Aris: I know that, but your a doctor, aren't you?" Daniel: "...of Archaeology..."
-"Should have let the dog out"
-Daniel: "Good idea." Jack: "It happens."

Shiro
March 18th, 2008, 01:29 PM
I think there's a goof in this episode.

At the start, Aris explains that Sam has a high price on her head because she contains the memories of Jolinar.

Then later, it's made to seem that he's never heard of the Tok'ra.

Any thoughts? It could probably be explained away by the fact that he didn't know that Jolinar was a Tok'ra, but surely Jolinar's notoriety comes about because of that fact?

Anyway, any thoughts?

garhkal
March 18th, 2008, 06:50 PM
Depends. Some of the gou'ald seemed to not really want to give acceptance to the Tok'ra being around (black sheep of the group), and others might have just wanted to keep the general knowledge that this earthling had not only met them, but had one possess her for a little time.

Then later, it's made to seem that he's never heard of the Tok'ra.

Any thoughts?


It's more along the lines that he's never had the difference between Goa'uld and Tok'ra explained to him - as he himself says when he's taking Teal'c up to rendezvous with Sokar's mothership,

Aris: "It's a pretty noble thing you're doing."

Teal'c: "You have made a sacrifice as well."

Aris: "I guess I never knew the Tok'ra were...different, you know."


It would have been great if they'd brought Sam back as Aris - he worked well with the others, though many people don't like him because of his need to pwn everyone he comes across :cool: At the very least, he deserved a shout-out in the episode "Bounty" when the Lucian Alliance was trying to get their mitts on SG-1!

I thought the technology in this episode was awesome. Especially the takunitagaminituron's (Tak's), I was disappointed that we never got to see these devices again. This was the first time we see the Tel'tak a small intergalactic spaceship that we see a lot throughout the Stargate series. Aris's upgrades to his Tel'tak were also very cool and the self destruct device was a fun part of the episode.

You think so? I thought he was really cool, all the knowledge and strength of a Jaffa with the exact same limitations. We see how the Goa'uld make slaves of humans in different ways, variety being the spice of life and all.

I LOVE THIS EPISODE!

I don't really know why, I just love Aris! It's nice to see a potential "bad guy" who's willing to joke around with his captives! I too have memorized this ep back and forth, and have put it on my iPod! Now I can watch it wherever I go! YIPPEE!

My favorite line has to be the part about Jack being and pain in the "mikta"! Absolutely priceless and now I've got a new nickname to call my brother! ;)

Not a bad episode. The first time we see many new technology and the now widely used cargo ships.

Just goes to show bad the Goa'uld are and the lengths they will go to, to enslave and stop possible threats from every becoming formidable enemies.

It would of been good if he gave Sam some of his blood as well may of helped work out why the Goa'uld couldn't use them as hosts.

hehe some funny Daniel and Jack moments in this episode as well. :)

I am not sure what to think of this episode. Aris Boch sounds so Earth-like. It's too weird. He's not from Earth but he speaks and acts like he is.

I enjoyed the tech stuff in this ep. The cargo ship, the cloaking, the Taks (what's the complete name again?), the shields, etc.

I love how Jack just casually zats Aris. Even the 2nd time just to see if it doesn't really work.

I wonder if they were able to help Aris Boch's people?

Another abandoned storyline (Aris Boch people's ability to not-become-host) ~ even when they totally left the door open with him handing Carter some of his drug.

Many comedic moments, though. :D I love it when Jack is so... Jack-like.

O'NEILL: Who are you?
ARIS BOCH: Aris Boch. Perhaps you've heard of me.
O'NEILL: Uh, not I. Teal'c?
TEAL'C: I have not.
ARIS BOCH: Well that's disappointing. I'm one of the galaxy's greatest hunters.
O'NEILL: Not ringing a bell. Sorry.

Ever since the reference in this episode to "a pain in the mikta", I've always made a connection between that and the director Andy Mikita. I wonder if the word was a reference to his name.

And even if not, Andy Mikita will always be "pain in the mikta" to me. ;)

Just re-watched this epsiode which is one of my all time favorites from SG-1 especially from Series 3, up there in this series top 5 atleast, along with: Foothold, Urgo, Crystal Skull and Fair Game.

However sadly its one of those episodes I always forget about since this storyline was never revisited and truly stands alone even though it provides lots of nice little details about the Stargate Universe, and is the epsiode which introduced one of the coolest Stargate ships, the Cargo Ship.

The Bounty Hunter character was really awesome and even though be looked too Human to be an Alien the yellow blood was enough to sell him as a new species. Sadly with so much potential to revisit him and his species it never happened.

is it this epsiode or demons where they say,

Daniel: He is a pain in the Mikta
Jack: Neck?

That was my favourite quote in the episode. The lack of any expression on Teal'c face when he said no made me laugh the most.

Jack is random in this episode. The part where he keeps saying 'of course' is funny, but not as funny as Aris zatting himself and then Jack zatting him to make sure. :) One of my favourite episodes. :)

I personally liked the character of Aris and the humor in this episode. It's too bad that the writers once again prevented SG-1 from acquiring useful technology. I guess it was their way of milking the series by keeping earth limited in regards to technology.

When Aris says: "I hate Goa'uld, you hate 'em. Everybody hates Goa'ulds."
It reminds me of Beetlejuice when he says "You want to somebody out of your house. I want to get somebody out of your house." and then when Jack actually says Beetlejuice as a guess for a password I can't help but wonder... :)

FLASH! AH-AAH! SAVIOUR OF THE UNIVERSE! Oh, Sam J. Jones is awesome here.

One of my favourite SG-1 episodes, so much fun to watch. Of all the characters that the show introduced over the years, Aris has to be amongst the top 5 best and certainly one of the ones who really deserved to have further episodes. This is a classic which highlights SG-1 really working as a team when they are forced to sort out a situation on their own.

The only thing which doesn't quite fit is the ending, which appears very rushed. Aris changes his mind awfully fast upon seeing the Tok'ra trying to commit suicide. Other than that, this is a near flawless episode and very funny throughout.

- First appearance of a Goa'uld cargo ship

- First appearacce of a cloaking device. It's strange, whenever the team encounter new Goa'uld technology Teal'c says that he has never seen it before. It would appear that every important Goa'uld invention was put into circulation the day after Teal'c switched sides.

- First appearance of crystals in Goa'uld tech (although not the first mention, Carter talked about them in 'Torment of Tantalus').

- At the end when Aris blows up his ship, he says it's because he removed the crystal. I might be confused, but this appears to be opposite of what he said earlier in the episode, when he mentions that the self-destruct is only activated when all 3 crystals are IN place. Weird.

RATING: 9 out of 10

This ep is favored for its high humor and Daniel's eye blinking. sigh.

The comedy starts right away when Daniel first walks into the energy field. "Found it!" Such timing he has!
Jack has many great lines as well, "Put your hand up!" but he and Daniel are really fun to watch. Accessing the cargo ship, discussing the ship's bomb, Daniel's reaction to Aris Bock being tickled by the zat.

The sad fate of Aris Boch's people, being slaves to the Rashna just like the Jaffa are bound to their symbiotes might be the only serious moment in the entire episode. Speaking of Teal'c, what courage to trade his own freedom for the Tok'ra. But then, being buffeted around when the cargo ship begins to take off...well, I'm reminded of his puppet in 200!

I could never decide if I liked or disliked this episode. The comedy took over, but it seemed misplaced to me with the constant game of SG-1 and Aris Boch trying to outdo each other and with such smug attitudes. It became irritating fast for me and all the interesting more serious moments seemed lost in it.

After this rewatch it ended up in my dislike column. I was still impressed by the effect of the cargo ship on the ground and taking off, that was pretty well done and stood the test of time quite well I thought.

You know what else is funny? A few in this thread have mentioned that the guy who played Aris Boch was the same guy who starred in the 80's version of Flash Gordon, and just as I was finishing my writeup for this ep, I heard the Queen song 'Flash' from that film on Planet Rock. :D

1. So SG1 run into a shield...and then run into 'this' dodgy geezer!

2. "Barkna" "Well if it was Barkna the door would open now wouldn't it?"

3. Rewatching this I was trying to remember how Teal'c escaped.

4. I can only assume that Sam Jones turned out to be too expensive to make a recurring character.

So this guy wants SG-1 to capture a Goa'uld, who turns out to be a Tok'ra.

And this build up to the introduction of Sokar is pretty exciting.

Another one of those forgotten storylines which is unfortunate as I really liked it. Aris Booch was such an interesting foil for SG1 I am disappointed that we never saw him. Despite the cunning of Sg1 Aris always seems able to out smart them. I found him quite complex in his motives and reasons why he does and the almost friendly attiude he had for SG1 despite being their enemy. I also found him tracking Goa'uld weapons to be quite interesting.

If thier is one compliant its how easy he switches sides and frees SG1 and the Tokra. His reservations about the Goa'uld was hardly unexpected but the letting everyone go was quite fast

Aris is a complex character -wish we could have seen him again, and that Carter could have had a cure for his people.

That's two interesting avenues, so far this season, that are never pursued. (yeah, I'm counting.) First were the Orbonne. Definitely long-term trading partners, there. Now there's the bounty hunter. Would have been cool to visit more of his kind, take blood samples, figure out why the snakes can't control them. I'm sure the writers could have created an episode-long story there. And Boch could have been a useful contact to obtain intel and tech. Plus, he's fun.

Would gaining an upper hand against the goauld be important enough to Sam that she would consider doing something like that?

Aris has been a popular fanfic character, largely because I think he's rather versatile. There are plenty of times when the team might need a freelancer to do something or get something.

Oh dear... time to get a few stinkers out of the way... Deadman Switch is still fairly OK for me, but Demons -- last time, I nearly threw something at the screen and just turned it off halfway through.

So, Aris Boch... interesting fella, ain't he.

Got on my nerves though. I don't think I felt this annoyed about him before.

He's basically a coward, working to get his next fix. A druggie, even if the Goa'uld made him this way. He may have changed his mind in the end but he's still going to trade with lesser Goa'uld so you can bet there'll still be people he's gonna sacrifice for his next fix. Or he might not, but since we never hear from him again, who knows.

Kora is another Tok'ra never to be heard from again, but at least we saved his ass so he may fight another day.

I did appreciate Aris Boch's outfit more, and that pimped out T.E.R. or whatever the prop-department was trying to show us. If it wasn't meant to look like they retrofitted a T.E.R. they really should have done a better job but damn, it sure looked cool.

This episode had a lot of potential that was wasted because it was never revisited again. Aris Booch can't be implanted and is addict is some interesting stuff. I think him as a recurring antihero would have been a great storyline. On it's own all the new information makes for a good episode, but overall it's disappointing we never see him again. It's a good for me

Also first episode with the famous cargo ship

Also first episode with the famous cargo ship

Which does make a few reappearances. And I so loved that moment when Jack and Daniel are trying to recall the password. :p

Also, in Jolinar's Memories, the first thing Daniel does, is check if all the crystals are in place. :p

But still not the master with a 5 minutes and 19 seconds. I don't want to brag but I could do better. I made a few mistakes

I love this episode, so many good lines that make me laugh. I wouldn't call it one of the best SG1 episodes, but certainly one of the more entertaining/fun.
