This was my favourite ep. of the season. I thought the chemistry between the three was good, and Jonas dipping his food into his shake was a scream.

I liked this episode. It was nice to see Sam in charge for a change. I also felt like we got to learn some more about Jonas, and his relationship with the team, and his quarks.

As much as I enjoy the Jack character I really didn't miss him in this episode.

Yah, the three person team was great, although i still like Jack as the leader and all, Sam was perfect:) I also thought it was funny how she slapped Jonas, and at the end of the episode Jonas questioned if it was absolutely nescecary to slap him, then she asks if he wanted lunch, nice little chat :)

That was great, Jonas in the chair and slap right in his face!

And then he talks again, and Sam looks at him like shes going to slap him again.

This probably rates as one of my favourite Season 6 episodes. It had a wonderfully creepy, Lovecraftian feel to it; with the whole town acting all screwy and sleepwalky. It's actually the episode that inspired the story idea that eventually became The Call (http://www.gateworld.net/fanfic/archive/15/sg7in.html).

It was great that she was going to hit him again? Or it was great as in funny. Anyways, i liked the part where Sam tells Jonas to watch Teal'c, and she goes over to Teal'c and tells him to watch Jonas.

Let's talk about the ship that was being built by the townsfolk. How do you think they managed that? Spare parts ordered over the internet? Lots of missing toasters in town? Maybe the Intergalactic Home Shopping Network? ;)

Mr. Prophet- I hadn't actually considered it to be very Lovecraftian, but now that you mention it, it does share certain elements, doesn't it? Like the people of Innsmouth, slowly being changed into something other...

Mr Prophet

I was actually kind of disappointed. I was like: Oh, it's only the Goa'uld. I was sure it was some kind of elder things from beyond the stars beaming their own consciousnesses into the sleeping minds of the townsfolk.

So I was close.

Anyway, that's when I came up with the idea of the Elder Threat (originally the Mythos Threat, but that seemed a little too literary for the SGC).

I figure with the ship that they were building was cobbled together from approximate parts ordered through the company and initially at least with the connivance of the Shadow NID group. I don't know if they planned for it to be reusable though; maybe it was just intended to hop them as far as the nearest Stargate. Or, since they're Goa'uld and live for years, maybe it wasn't even a hyperspace-capable vessel; they were just going to sleep it out in sublight.

That's kind of a plot hole because they've been working on it for months. Someone had to pay for the parts and if they were special made then they were going to cost a pretty penny. Someone should have noticed all the money being spent.

Plus most compaines make deliveries during the day time hours so who would accept delivery if they dont know what it is or why it's there?

I wrote a Stargate/Cthulhu crossover fic once. Ended up being rather mangled, but it was still loads of fun to write and I still think it'd be brilliant if TPTB found some way to add in the Elder Gods to a Stargate story. I don't even think there'd be an issue of copyright infringement. For some reason I want to say that it's all open-ended now. I could be wrong about that but I seem to recall doing a brief skim-over when I was working on my fic.

I agree with you about Nightwalkers. I thought it was a fun ep, but the end result was a little disappointing. Just a bunch of half-snake zombies and even that wasn't taken to the lengths to which it could have been taken in order to make it truly interesting and terrifying.

It could have been a great set-up to "something even WORSE than the Goa'uld..." :D

I'm not sure. Lovecraft's stuff may be out of date, but I think Chaosium still owns some level of rights. It might just be for RPGs, but certainly TSR got into trouble when they produced D&D stats for the Mythos gods.

The only thing scary about Marilyn Manson is his continuing popularity.

Frankly, I'm still waiting for Daniel to either find or reveal that he has a copy of the Necromonicon... If we could at least see it on his bookshelf or something. *sigh*

At least Nightwalkers was a good example (IMO) of Carter's ability to lead and of the team's general competence and cohesion without Jack being around.

And I loved Jonas's keen observations. And the whole thing with onion rings and chocolate frappe (which really is remarkably good).

I thought it was great that they established Jonas' own schtick; made him something more than just the Daniel stand-in. The chemistry (non-ship) between Carter and Jonas - Carter Jonas are a firm of development agents in Cambridge, by the way - was top notch.

I still haven't decided whether Miskatonic University should exist in my SG-1 'verse or not.

Do either of you have any actual comments to add to this thread other than saying the same thing over and over? We get that you liked the slap, you don't need to keep saying it in every post and agreeing with each other about how great it was.
Yes i know it seemed 'repeated', but first of all, we were commenting, we were talking about the quotes and things that happened in the episode, and if we can't do that, are we limited to only talking about the plot story and character relation? I think if its in within our own little conversation, but still about the episode, it is totally valid to the thread, even if other people don't seem to care about it.

Madeleine

LMJ, Anubis, don't worry. You were on-topic in this thread, and the forum will not self-destruct when the number of posts exceeds any limit.

Anyone else, if you want to steer the conversation in a particular way, fine, introduce a new skein for people to discuss. Telling posters to stop discussing something because you don't want them to isn't necessary.

I liked the slap, it made me wonder if she was projecting (Kinsey? a different Jonas?) or just plenty committed to her subterfuge. And I liked the bit with the camcorder, it was the last time we got to see Jonas in 'everything's new' mode.

Thanks Madeleine W :)

Did anyone get annoyed by the constant NID prescense in the show? They're everywhere! (well maybe not everywhere), but i didn't suspect them being in this episode.

To be honest, I thought this was the second weakest episode of the season. The story seemed very X-Files and somewhat......predictable. Of course that's my opinion.

What was good about this episode was the interaction between the rest of SG-1, something we don't usually see.

Elwe Singollo
June 22nd, 2004, 12:46 AM
Yah, but i like the X-files feel that went with this episode, which makes me miss the X-files, haha... Anyways, what i didn't agree with was, the whole episode was predictable, i don't 100 percent agree, but i do see where the episode can be. The first NID host, who shot Sam and that other NID agent, i didn't see that comming, that slap wasn't predictable ;), but i still understand how the episode maybe predictable.

This is the episode that I was complaining I had only seen once. It was in another thread, I can't recall which one now. I thought it was a really good, (though I was wondering what happened to Jack through the whole thing).
And I think the NID is too much every where they go. Overall I thought it was a keeper. I liked Jonas and Teal'c in the bar. I thought we were going to see a little redneck Jaffa one on one.

Of course the NID were everywhere. They knew what was going on the whole time.. Just wanted them to finish the ship so NID could grab it.

Not a good episode, not a bad episode, just kind of an average episode.

I didn't notice the lack of O'Neill since their wasn't anything he could have done what would have changed the outcome of the ep.

But I remember one thing: When Teal'c and Jonas were in the NID van, I thought how wonderful it is that there are shows shooting in real moving cars and not using green screens or rear screen projections. Wow, was I surprised to find out how the scene was done (on DVD special feature). SG is really doing a good job with rear-screen projections or matte paintings in general, unlike countless other shows.

Yes and all those 'other' shows take home the awards for "Best FX" etc, etc. :mad: It's just not fair! ;)

Those judges who decide who gets the awards are probably really really old people who 'think' they have good judgement. But i'm going to see how they did it, cause i thought it was a green-screen for a second, hahah..

I don't know about predictable but the X-Files vibe was strong with this one. It felt like characters from Stargate were being thrown into a totally different show. That being said, I thought it was a very entertaining 44 minutes of television. The bar scene with Teal'c and Jonas is classic.

Can any of you gate buffs help me out, something from this episode confused me. Adrian Conrad, last time we saw him was when he was at the NID safehouse wasn't it? Did I miss something? Where is he now? Did Jack 'take care' of him, or did he stay as a guest of the NID? the next mention of him seems to be in 'Nightwalkers'. Thanks for your help, feel free to reply to this post or email me to clear up my confusion. [email protected]

In Prometheus he gets released, along with Colonel Simmons, and they nick the Prometheus. There's a whole thing and the upshot is no more Conrad, no more Goa'uld.

He doesn't need to put spoiler warnings for season six episodes anymore. The requirement for that season went away about a month ago, when season seven started in US syndication.

So I liked it. Had a very XFiles feel, but it was the feel from the XFiles in the years that I liked that show. Over all I have a few quibbles and comments.

a) Could SG1 have been more ragingly obvious than to walk into small town Oregon dressed all in black (and leather pants woohoo), and driving a blue Ford that looked like it was pulled out of a government motor pool?

b) I liked Jonas in this episode. First one so far that I've seen that I didn't hate him. Good interaction with Sam. Got the feeling that she didn't really like him yet. Loved the slap. Loved "Goa'uld" Sam. Kind of which she'd slapped him again. ;)

c) Like that they've been CGIing the goa'uld. They look more real.

d) Was it just me, or were the NID containment team using really horrible urban tactics and search tactics?

e) It felt like it wrapped to fast, like they had Sam zat them and than went "whoops, only eight more minutes!"

f) It was nice to be reminded that Sam can be a competent military officer and leader. It's been easy to forget lately.

I know I'm coming late to the party, but I just saw this ep last night. I really enjoyed it.

Mulder and Scully. . . oops, sorry Sam and Teal'c and Jonas went to investigate the death of a scientist. I suppose I liked it so much because it was so X-Files-ish. Even the town-Steveston-could so be an X-Files town. :p

I thought they wrapped things up a little quickly at the end. A vaccine against the symbiote? :rolleyes:

Anyway, how about the clothes? Teal'c got into Shaft's closet. Okay, Sam, leather pants? She must have raided Farscape's wardrobe closet. I'm still trying to figure out why Jonas was carrying a man purse. But overall, they had a kick ass wardrobe.

I still believe Mulder and Scully were geared up and ready to go through the Gate. ;)

Everyone else says X-Files. It's funny, I just instantly thought 'Lovecraft'. I was actually kind of disappointed that it turned out to be the Goa'uld rather than the Insects from Shaggai.

I suppose it goes without saying that I loved this ep. I've mentioned it before, probably in this thread, but it also inspired the SG-7 series of fanfics, an almighty 30 story arc (5 written to date) that got into my brain and wouldn't go away!


a) Could SG1 have been more ragingly obvious than to walk into small town Oregon dressed all in black (and leather pants woohoo), and driving a blue Ford that looked like it was pulled out of a government motor pool?

It's a small town and they ain't from round here(TM). If you're going to be spotted anyway, you might as well look cool.

Plus: Leather pants.


f) It was nice to be reminded that Sam can be a competent military officer and leader. It's been easy to forget lately.

Hasn't it just. You know; the Carter in this episode, I suspect even Major Clanger might accept as a major (if not quite a short colonel).

I have a dark and dirty secret: I actually like "Nightwalkers" :D
It makes no sense: Usually I hate the NID stuff, it had neither my favourite nor my second favourite character in it (not even my third favourite ;) )but I think it´s the only X-filish episode which ever really worked. Maybe because it seemed not to take itself to earnest. And Sam, Teal´c and Jonas had a surprising good chemistry in this episode. Maybe because they seemed to have really much fun with it.

Hi all first post.

On my way through the show for the first time and have just watched Nightwalkers. I really like Jonas, I've nearly forgotten all about Daniel Jackson. The Jonas/Teal'c chemistry is great.

I have a dark and dirty secret: I actually like "Nightwalkers" :D

So do I... ;) but am not sure why either... it seemed to have the makings of a conspiracy movie at one stage and then turned out just to be the good o'l Goa'uld... I suppose I like the political stuff anyway, which probably helps.

Watching the episode reminds me of how much I like Jonas. Perhaps I have fond memories of Parker Lewis Can't Lose or it's because we're the same age and I can better relate to his charater. But whatever the reason, I like the fact that Jonas got to do Sherlock Holmes in this episode... and the fact that he did it so matter-of-factly is a lovely touch.
My take on Jonas is that he is a much more an intuitive character rather than an intellectual one... in that sense he is much more like Jack than Daniel, who in the early days was much more of the intellectual idealist. Hence, I'm glad that we get to see this side of Jonas using his eyes and ears and not just book learning to contribute to the investigation.

It was a fun episode and lots of great chemistry between three of the main characters. More surprising was some incidental humour between Carter and Jonas...

I like the fact that Jonas got to do Sherlock Holmes in this episode... and the fact that he did it so matter-of-factly is a lovely touch.

I agree. How many of us would have:
a) Noticed that the customers and staff in the Diner were being so dopey;
b) inferred that, judging by the numbers affected in the Diner alone, it must be a fairly widespread dopeyness; and
c) proposed that the entire town was operating on short sleep?

I wouldn't have - and neither did Sam and Teal'c. But then, Jonas still probably hasn't become as familiar with the outside world of the Tauri as Teal'c has. From my own foreign travels, I know that being in a new environment makes me as 'all eyes' as that, and I want to take in as much as possible. But, even if I had noticed how clumsy the fellow diners were being, I certainly wouldn't have read anything into it, never mind deduced why it was happening. That Jonas Quinn is one brainy chap.

I liked the episode. Noticed no Jack at all. Guess this was the beginning of RDA taking time off.

The drawing of the ship being built looked sort of Asgard-ish. But what they showed behind the door did not look to me, much like the drawing.

I like this one as well - its one I watch frequently. I like how they are all dressed - SO slick kinda like a toned-down matrix feel. Sam in that long black coat, the boots and the shades. And Jonas and his American food - LOL.

I miss Jonas - I found his optimistic attitude refreshing. He's Way smart and Way intuitive and just adorable all around. Glad he got to shine a bit in this one.

I love reading all the opinions on these episodes. Nightwalkers was most definitely, NOT, one of my favorites. It reminded me of the X-Files, with AT as Agent Scully. Great leather, but the plot left a lot to be desired. I kept waiting for David Duchovny to rush in, claiming his sister was one of the townspeople. ;)

LOL, true, I didn't mind that it was an 'homage' ep

but Teal'c's symbiote could have gotten into Dochovny and THEN he could run in saying his sister was one of the townspeople :p

Duchovny with glowing eyes and a flangy voice...now THERE's a visual...

To be honest, I thought this was the second weakest episode of the season. The story seemed very X-Files and somewhat......predictable. Of course that's my opinion.

This is pretty much where I am with this one, overall. It was pretty cliched, right out of Dawn of the Dead and The Bodysnatchers.

For all that though, there are a lot of elements in it that I like. I do enjoy seeing Sam in command of a small, covert team, being resourceful and brave. And I like the interaction between the three of them throughout. There are some cute, humourous beats in there, too. I can't say that my lukewarm response to it has anything to do with it being Jackless either. I thought, as an episode generally, it worked pretty well without him.

When I watch it, I enjoy a lot of it. It's just not an episode that's high on my favourites list or one that I think about revisiting often.

I wouldn't want this kind of ep all the time but that goes for most of what I see on SG-1. But it's part of the whole picture...a wide variety of styles and stories to be told.

I love Ba'al and the Tok'ra and Felger, but I wouldn't want them in every episode.

Plus I like the line "You guys aren't nearly as smart as you think you are."

I quite enjoyed it, I think if you compare each episode to other types of shows then it doesn't look right but I like to see the team in different settings. The only b it that was a bit odd was sam getting a phonecall in the middle of the night by a stranger!
It waas good to see sam in charge and see hw she did things differently.And teal'c and jonas were hilarious together.
There were a couple of twists in the story as well, like I wasn't expecting the NID to be there and then the NID was being infiltrated. I'll admit it wasn't a part of the main story arc but I enjoyed it all the same. :)

I love this ep. It's like a comfort food ep. The team interactions are fab and Carter's in charge and wearing leather.

CARTER: Why are you following us?
MAN: I don't know what you're talking about.
CARTER: Teal'c.
Teal'c pulls up harder on the man's shirt.

I get an evil thrill from that beat.

Teal'c says one of my favourite lines of the entire series: "Our attempts to gather information from the local townfolk proved equally fruitless." Townfolk?! BWAH!

I also really liked Jonas. He and Carter -- or perhaps Nemec & Tapping -- had a great vibe.

CARTER: You didn't say anything weird, did you?
JONAS: Why are you looking at me?

It kills me that Carter would call someone on her team 'weird'. Classic.

I wouldn't say it was one of the best eps of the season, but I liked the oddballness of it and I agree with DEM, it's kind of a comfort food ep. The circumstances and dialogue were great, IMO, and it's one of the few times that RDA's absense felt completely natural. I honestly never even noticed him missing from the ep. I was having too much fun. ;)

I just rewatched Nightwalkers last night. The first time I watched it, I thought it was an okay episode. But after watching it again, I realized that it is kind of growing on me. Now I think I like it.
And I didn't realize how much thought went into making the episode until I listened to the audio commentary.
And for whatever goofy reason, I really liked it when Carter said to Jonas, "Let's get some lunch!"

I saw a bit of this episode on tv recently and it reminded me of a nagging question i had. What did they do with gould ship that was being built by the townspeople? I assumed they used it on the prometheus or did they explain what they did with it?

You know what? That's a great question, I can't recall if they ever mentioned it again. Though it is likely they transphered it to Area 51.

I enjoyed this episode. Like many others have said - it had an X-Files feel to it, which I liked. It was nice to have Carter in charge and I thought the three of them made a nice little team. And Carter's repeated, "Let's have lunch" to Jonas when he said something she didn't want to answer. Cute.

Regarding the "X-Files feel" to this episode: the only thing it was missing was the date and time scrolling on the bottom of the screen. It was either a complete rip-off of "The X-Files" or a campy homage to the "X-Files" right down to the music, the camera angles, the sets, and the lighting.

Good things:

-Carter looks pretty good in those (p)leather pants.
-Assuming it's a campy homage: funny and silly
-Yay!! I spotted PDL coming out of the diner.

Bad things:

-Horribly stiff acting by the guest cast (except for the sheriff, even though, MAN! That guy falls asleep faster than anyone I've ever seen)-and, yes, I know, they were supposed to be kind of zombie-like....but....since when have goa'ulds been zombie-like? Yeah, yeah, they were clones....I'm still not buying it.
-Raining one direction/not raining the other direction/absolutely pouring down rain one direction/still not raining the other direction....I can't believe they let something that obvious slip past!
-Too much NID!!! The main reason I don't care much for seasons 5 and 6 is TOO MUCH NID!!!!!! THIS HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE STARGATE AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED!!!! Spin off a show about the NID if need be, but I find the whole subject cliched and trite.
-Assuming it's a rip-off of "The X-Files": Well....then....it's a rip-off.

I'm just so glad "Abyss" is next.

I guess the reason they were zombie-like was that the Goa'ulds inside them were all very immature and only able to take over when their hosts were asleep. One would suppose that, as they're (technically) asleep, it's not as easy to control their overall movement - hence the zombie-like shamblings.

On the other hand, they could have just been really wooden actors!:)

Well, I saw this ep, and I axctually enjoyed it.

As for the X-Flies homage/ripoff, well, I just thought it was a nice change of pace.

Though I've got one question: since Sam blended with Jolinar several seasons ago, doesn't that mean she couldn't be blended with a new symbiote anyway? :sam34:

I enjoyed the x-files feel to Nightwalkers, it was certainly very different to all the previous episodes so it was really interesting to see. I thought I might miss Jack when I realised he wasn't going to be in it, but the chemistry between Sam, Teal'c and Jonas was great. Jonas is hilarious and I love that nearly every scene he is in, he's eating; he really does have a thing for Earth food ;) Carter slapping him was great too!

Just went back and watched this EP. I will give you something to think about. If the infant snake heads can only take over the bodies when the towns folk are at their weakest(asleep). Then why when they implant one in to Sam do they not think 'well she's awake so the little fella can't take over yet'. But nope, they just implant her and assume shes one of them straight away.

Anyway, didn't mind the EP.

October 2nd, 2007, 08:34 AM
well they were all clones so there was no naquadah in their blood. it's that which teal'c and sam can detect. it's also why the goauld can detect that sam was once host to jolinar, because of the leftover protein marker and naquadah in her blood.

It's hard to believe that the NID could get approval to watch as an entire town was taken over by Goa'uld symbiotes. I mean you would think that the NID would be affraid of some kind of leek or something. For example what if just one of those symbiotes found it's way into a river that led away from the town and into an area where the NID weren't watching. A Goa'uld out on the loose could cause all sorts of unforeseeable problems.

It was very young/not a fully mature larva. (Hence the reason the Goa'uld could only take over when the townspeople were asleep.) Carter was unconscious. By the time it had "connected" everything it needed to, it was too late.

Well this episode looked very much like an old X-files episode.

Nothing wrong with that , but it was far away from what I expect to see in a Stargate SG episode.

Good to see Sam in charge but without Jack it was a bit boring.

Still it was a good episode but not my favourite.

Rating: 6 / 10

I LOVED this episode. It was so different than what we are used to seeing. Yes it had an X-files feel but also it still stood on its own with story twists and hints as to what can happen. Very well writen and anything shot at night always looks so damn cool! I thought with so much happening you really didn't miss Jack, and as a DIE HARD Jack fan that's saying something! The whole story line fit great into the already existing story arch and didn't over step or change something for the sake of one episode.

wylie's birth was years before that. this was about rda having less episodes to be present in. i 'think' they came up with the taking-a-symbiote storyline to cover/give a reason for jack's less appearances.

The problem with this, quite frankly, terrible episode is that it isn't a Stargate episode, it's an X-Files episode (or, these days, perhaps Fringe). And to make matters worse, it's a bad X-Files/Fringe episode. It's just boring, and I can't really see the point in its existence. It doesn't even have much humour.

It has good points, Amanda Tapping gets to shine as she takes lead of SG-1, Jonas shows his continued usefulness and Teal'c has obviously relaxed greatly into understanding the human way of life. O'Neill's presence isn't really missed, because the story has moved so far away from the familiar.

Nice atmosphere to the whole thing, but a big messy failure of an episode.
RATING: 5 out of 10

The symbiotes are too young to take complete control of their hosts, hence the reason they only are able to take control when the host is asleep. If Dr. Fleming had taken the antidote (and it's entirely possible that he did), the Goa'uld would have probably just killed him (as they did anyway).

Goa'uld have genetic memories, they would know all the planets and addresses that their ancestor's knew. The ship looked large enough to hold the amount of people that we saw had been taken (50-ish?). The quick eye glowing thing was probably just because the writers wanted to move the story along faster this time.

Dave2
December 13th, 2011, 02:50 PM
Where did sufficient antidote come from to innoculate all the residents of the town, and why did the symbiotes think Samantha Carter could infiltrate the SGC when the symbiotes only awaken at night and the host is hardly functional during the day? They would never get away with that.

Wouldn't the symbiotes have genetic knowledge of the stargate, which would obviously get them to a goa'uld planet faster than in a spaceship??

I stuck a VHS into my Hall of Res machine.

1. Yes, this was very much SG1 does the X-Files.

2. Interesting Sam and Jonas exchanges.

3. Also interesting exchange between Teal'c and Jonas in the bar, rewatching, you forget that Jonas wasn't expecting to return home.

4. That line from the Goa'ulded-Sheriff still makes me smile. He sounded more like Teal'c had spilled his beer!

Same standard as the average X Files ep - decent enough way to burn an hour.

The fish and chip shop seen on the street in the opening scene of this episode has a signed photo of SG-1 on its wall, it was where the restaurant scenes were filmed. Should go back for another visit and see if they have any photos of the 'Once Upon A Time' cast as that show is filmed in Steveston too. The fish & chips is pretty good too! :)

Anyway, I've always liked this episode, oddly for the reasons many dislike it. It was different and 'X-File' 'ish but still placed firmly in the Stargate universe. The idea of aliens taking over people, in this case Goa'uld symbiotes, in small North American towns is the mainstay of all those classic 'B' movies, and continues in the 'Body Snatchers' spirit, fall asleep and you're an alien! I guess that's why I liked it. :)

I don't know why everyone hates this episode. I frankly love it. Its a new take on the Goa'uld not to mention it shows how the show can be without RDA. Something I think is important given how from S6 on he has a diminished presence in the show. Maybe its because I come from a small town to that I found it so interesting. And no small towns aren't that quiet at night although I will admit they do get quiet. I like seeing SG1 acting more like NID agents then actual military personel. And plus I think it was a good mystery. Okay the syringe drug blocking the Goa'uld clones was a little contrived and predictable but still it was a fun mystery. On a side note Jonas continues to fascinate me with his absorbing of Earth culture. Teal'c was never a good example because he always stayed secluded from the Earth culture until the very later years but Jonas just dives in and I liked his perspective in this episode

The premise of the episode, of cloned goa'uld is actually a nice idea to work with, and the story is pretty okay. But I can't say I had this wow-factor when watching.

It's also the one where Jonas dips an onion ring in his, I presume, chocolate milkshake. Seriously?! That's about as good as fishfingers and custard. :S

The only thing I seem to have remembered from this episode is the part where Jonas dips that fried onion into his milkshake. :p And him enjoying the palette of new tastes. :cool:

It's a fun Earth-based episode, which doesn't require O'Neill (who is conveniently still out of the picture). Just Teal'c, Carter and Jonas having a good time in a little town, infested with infant goa'uld clones acting out their early teenage years by building a ship to run away from home. Or something like that... Or perhaps plan world domination -- which does come in later, towards the end.

Also, I'd like to sign up for Carter's classes: wormhole physics, motorcycle riding and lock picking.
Doesn't necessarily have to be in that order.

How would you rate SG-1's "Nightwalkers?"

Excellent

While it's a fairly okay episode, I'm not particularly wow-ed by it so in comparison to the first 4 this only gets a fair.

i always liked the overall ideas as well as the flow of the episode, i was impresed by the whole building a earth space ship by aliens on earth, i was like, cooll, and the escaped gouuld was a surprise that made sense and makes sense the NID were doing what they were doing, but that could have easily backfired if the gouuld knew schematics for bombs theyve never used before because the bombs are too.... dangerous? or even if they had the ability to program and build small nanite builders that could simultaniously defend them etc

Falcon Horus

The idea that they chose to build a ship and not weapons, or a bomb in this case, made me compare them to angry teenagers. How many times have we not, as teenagers, felt like our parents were treating us unfairly and thought it was better some other place (you know, the grass is always greener on the other side).

Actually, they were faster wanting to get off this planet than they were to dominate it.

I knew it was Storybrooke. The set dressing for OUAT is brilliant and they really know how to transform a street, but I recognized the features of the street. Some things you just can't hide.

I've never watched X-Files, so i don't catch the similarities, and again, I never saw this episode, but I liked it. It's good to see Samantha as team captain, and she's an effective leader. Jonas was also good, and he's his own character. Sam sure dresses well...she always looks sharp in civvies.

I especially liked seeing Sam Ward as one of the baddies...the big guy with the beard and gravelly voice. I saw a lot of him on Canadian TV, and it was entertaining with the usual quirky small town. The one I grew up in was just dull.

I can do better, but I'm recovering from neck and spine surgery after injuring my right side awhile back and my right hand and arm are not working up to normal capacity. Doing jigsaw puzzles has helped that, though, and I enjoy doing them. So thank you for providing a challenge for me. :)

Ah the first of many RDA missing episodes. Im kind of underwhelmed. The episode kind of goes through the motions and its kind of predictible. Of course they are Goa'uld. The only highlight is seeing Jonas in the field

What was going on with RDA during this time? Do you know? Just curious.

I do know. He wanted to be with his child. Which I can understand but it really hurt the quality of the show. Their are a lot of bad episodes during S6-S8. More as we get closer to S8

The idea of Goa'uld hiding out in a quiet town on Earth is chilling, as is the thought that this could have gone on for years, decades, even centuries, if Sam hadn't been tipped off about what was going on. Who knows what they would have been able to do if their operation had remained a secret. It's also paranoia fuel to think of your body being taken over at night, leaving you with no memory of what it was used for.

It's also an added creep factor that the cloned symbiotes had no naquadah in their blood, making them harder to detect.

It was nice to see Sam take the lead while Jack was missing. Her keeping Jonas out of trouble by asking that he watch over Teal'c was clever; a good way of ensuring that he'd stick by him.

How times have changed; the hard drive capacity of Fleming's computer was 9.6 GB.

Fleming gets cleverness points for hiding his syringe by mailing it to himself.

I found Sam, Teal'c and Jonas to be an engaging team, and I enjoyed watching them and their detective work. The coordinating outfits and sunglasses didn't hurt. One thing I like about it is that it's not a one-man or one-woman show, it is a team episode, and they worked together to save the day. It was also good to see Knox cooperate rather than try to obstruct the investigation, though that turned out to be for ulterior motives.

I really didn't expect Knox to turn out to be a bad guy. It's been so long since I watched the episode that I had forgotten. That was a nice twist, as was the involvement of the NID, especially as they weren't the villainous element within the organisation, they thought that they were doing the right thing by waiting for the ship to be built.

Quite a leap of faith for Sam to inject herself with the contents of the syringe, or perhaps it was more of an act of desperation. She did say that she had nothing to lose by taking it. I love her performance as a Goa'uld. Pitch perfect.

One small thing that I'm glad of about this episode is that it established that Sam has some ability to read Goa'uld. Whether that's from Jolinar or she learned it independently, it's useful to be able to do so in her line of work.

This one definitely deserves an Excellent. It was different, but nice as an occasional thing.

Probably not centuries unless it took them that long to build the ship. They had no plans on sticking around for further mayhem until SG-1 started to interfere.

Anyone who sleepwalks knows what that feels like -- doing stuff but not remembering them in the morning.

Black-outs too.

I'm still here. Sorry for falling off the map... or grid... or possibly, disappearing into a black hole.**

Like the jigsaw master mentioned, I've had some issues to get out of the way, and I was on vacation last week. Had to do a little recharging -- notwithstanding the sun decided to play hide-and-seek until we went up to the Teide National Park and no shadow was found for the entire duration of our walk so ... dead. :p

I've scheduled to continue this weekend and push through to the end.


** I've been hanging around Team TARDIS a lot lately, travelling through space and time.

If it were, I wouldn't be doing it... My sister will confirm that doing chores is not my strong suit. :p (unless there's a reward at the end)

Though no idea that's said in reference to chores. I meant it in a positive Allons-y, Allonzo!-kinda way.

I was missing me too. ;)

But I'll be back in full force, and I dug out the bag of books I was gifted by friends who cleaned out their bookcases and noticed there were several stargate related books in the stack so I'm hoping to put them to good use (other than to trip yours truly on her way out of the room).
