Martin Lloyd (Willie Garson) returns to the S.G.C. looking for assistance from SG-1 with his feature film script. The team is reluctant, especially Lt. Colonel Cameron Mitchell (Ben Browder), who is excited about his next off-world mission which marks the 200th trip through the event horizon. However, when technical glitches prevent the team from gating off-world, they are stuck in the boardroom under the orders of General Landry (Beau Bridges), because the Pentagon believes a successful science fiction film about intergalatic wormhole travel will serve as a good cover story to keep the Stargate Program a secret.

200th trip through the event horizon...that is BS! Is that for SG-1, or for the SGC? If it is for the SGC, then that's 20 trips a year. And if it is SG-1, that doesn't work either. They go though more then 20 times a year.

This was a great episode! Everything we ever wanted we got to see. Just wish the Furling scene was a lot longer. Otherwise I hope they can have a 300th episode one day. I will watch this one over and over again.

In short, it was a very good touch and enjoyable. The Furling scene in the beginning was cute and funny. Nice spoofs to Star Trek, Farscape, Wizard of Oz, and Team America: World Police.

The interviews in the end were pretty hilarious and nice take on the actors they were spoofing on.

Also, did anyone catch the slash moment with O'Neil and Jackson at the wedding scene...that will get the slashers going.

Very funny and very solid 5/5.

That was an awesome episode. One of the best SG-1 ep ever. Loved all the spoofs, the short opening, all the Stargate Spoofs. Damn did Peter DeLuise look different at the end of the ep. I give it a ****. Next weeks episode looks interesting.

It was silly, over the top and very funny. Haven't laughed that hard in a while. It was just good fun but I think it shifted a little toward the end. I could have done without the scene with them all going through the gate; ut didn't feel complete. The wormhole extreme at the ending was amusing but the parts with the cursing just seemed unnecessary and I didn't get the reference if there was one.

Seshat
August 18th, 2006, 07:09 PM
I laughed quite a bit! :D I thought the ep was funny in a warm-hearted kind of way. Especially nice bits at the end, the show-within-a-show parody and a touch of a reminder of what scifi really means to those who love it. :)

OH MY GOD that was awesome, I think that was just there so much I want to say about that episode. Even though I just kind of jumped onto the show I got everything and I didn't feel like an idiot I was laughing the entire time, every scene had something that just made it freaking the best. I liked how they made fun of the credits, to how they looked at Ben when he said about replacing the lead actor and he's like "what?"

Just wayyy to much that just going to have to go through and pull out everything omg it was great

They were spoofing on how actors acted in real life. Like the female member was spoofing on Amanda Tapping and the guy that played Daniel Jackson on Wormhole X-treme how he left season 6 and came back due to popular demand (spinning on how Daniel left). It was supposed to make fun of the actors. But the cursing one was a little off-key...maybe something that is a joke with the crew.

LOL at the Furlings talking to each other

ahah

I loved it, was laughing a lot, only complaint I have was that the puppet scene was TOO LONG.

And RDA appearing 45 minutes into the episode made me mad, although I understand the reasoning for it.

Now I wait until April for his next SG-1 appearence.

*sigh*

August 18th, 2006, 07:18 PM
Awesome! It had everything! The Star Trek portion was the best....lol. BB's impression of Kirk had me rolling and AT *blink blink* I'm laughing just typing this. It was great. It was everything SG1 was. This will go down as one of my all time favorite SG1 episodes.

The best part? The original team going through the gate together....they are what has made this show last 200 episodes. Perfect.

I'll be watching this one alot this week. Oh...I loved the furlings....lol

Oh, how I wish I could have seen the party on the other side of the gate. Ah, well. I'm still wiping at my eyes from laughing so hard. I was close to hyperventilating.

I remember Nathan saying (I think his name was Nathan--one of the guys who won the get in the gate contest a couple of years back) how incredibly foul-mouthed the crew and some of the cast were. I think it was a poke at that. I didn't care for it overmuch, but then, it wasn't for me--it was for them. I thought the puppet thing went on a tad too long, also.

Everything else--just hilarious! So many favorites--but I think the best was Rygel! Oh my WORD!!

Skydiver
August 18th, 2006, 07:54 PM
the cursing in the end was PdL and i'm willing to bet a dig at the complaints about his potty mouth in the commentaries.

even if he doesn't say the naughty words, he certainly takes things to constipation in about 3.8 seconds...a common complaint about the commentaries that he does

ShimmeringStar

As spoiled rotten as I was about this episode I wasn't sure what to expect and to be honest went into it with low expectations and expected a total spoof.

And I'm happy to report I really enjoyed it and laughed a lot; sometimes to the point of tears. It helped too to watch it with my soon to be 15-year old nephew and my Dad. (Dad being the one who got me hooked on Stargate and nephew.... well, he's never watched a whole ep until tonight but totally understands his Poppy and Auntie SS's lurve for the series...) (By the end of 200 nephew was definitely a Teal'c fan - loving his understated responses to everything that went on around him. And I think it made a difference too that he saw Chris laughing heartily in the special and then saw this sly, reserved character in the show... So we'll see if we can convert him yet...;):D)

Hmmmm.... let's see.... bargain-basement costumed Ewoks as Furlings! LOL! And yes... there's a reason we don't hear from them --- they kinda blew up!!:eek: :P

And right after that when Martin said who does long intros anymore they just show the title shot and jump in and then the immediate cut to the real SG intro only a second or two long!!!

Oh and Invisible!Jack---- now *that* would have been an interesting full-blown episode!!!! Thanks Rick for donning the green suit!!! :D

I liked the puppet thing too. Wasn't sure what to expect never having watched Team America or the other show my nephew was talking about. He got a big kick out of the puppet part. And Yay! for Hammond being back, if only in voice on that section.

Loved Jack's "You weren't there!" when Vala/Cam tried to imagine themselves in on the S8 ending fishing scene. :D

Interesting how the spoilers for some things (wedding, Teal'c, P.I., etc.) were only about as long as the clips or caps that had been leaked and distributed. Had really thought they would be longer.

Teal'c and Sam - OMG - the best things about the Farscape homage. (Which was way too short - more Thor! More Sam and Teal'c!!!!):D:D

The tongue-in-cheek jest that Cam was fathered by Jack and that was why he got all the special treatment he had including his placement on SG-1.....:D

Landry as Oz was a nice touch.

Felger as Scotty!!!!:P:D

As far as the homages- it was good and even poking fun at fans and themselves it was even better. (Way better than Citizen Joe IMO which seemed like a way more snarky and dark jab at fans than this one.)

Thanks for a wonderful show. :)

When I saw that 200 was a continuation of the themes established in Wormhole X-treme, I was concerned. The 100th episode is not my favorite. Yet, tonight's episode was amusing. I won't call it my favorite episode of all time, but it was an enjoyable expereince.

The episode's positives are many:

1. I loved many of the short sequences from other shows; I just wanted some of them to be longer. The Farscape take-off and the Star Trek scene were quite well done. I loved Mitchell as Kirk with . . . his . . . slow . . . dialouge. The only thing that would have made this scene more perfert would have been Teal'c with pointy ears. Did anyone else want to see Carson from SGA as Scotty rather than whomever they used? The wedding scene was also amusing. Did anyone else notice that the real Sam and Jack seemed amused rather than alarmed after that scene?

2. I liked the team interaction, and the scene at the end with everyone, including Walter, going through the gate was lovely.

3. Many of the inside jokes were quite amusing. It is obvious that the writers read the posts on Gateworld at times. I felt gratified as a fan. :)

4. I loved invisible Jack. Now, I wish that had actually happened in an episode. It would have been cute.

5. I liked Jack being back, but I also appreciate that the new characters were not shoved out of the way either.

6. The 1969 joke was awesome!!! That is one of my favorite episodes, so I was cracking up.

7. I loved the Furlings. I hope we never actually meet them now because I want to keep the Ewok on steroids image going.

The negatives are more pet peeves than anything:

I liked the episode, but hated the ending. I wanted to see the cake and our character interacting on the other side, and I hate the little alien guy who came up with the show, so I could have used less of him and more of RDA.

I also REALLY wanted the snippets to be longer. By the time I had found everyone in a scene, the scene was over.

The episode was much better than I expected, and I am looking forward to the return of the Ori plot next week. 200 was a great trip down memory lane and amusing for what it was: 9/10.

I was hoping for some more S/J Ship.....but otherwise, I thought it was very good.

The only part I didn't like was PDL spouting bleeped obscenities in search of a catch-phrase. I just didn't think it was funny, or that it fit. I just thought it was dumb.

Otherwise, very creative and fun.....

But, if TPTB are lurking tonight.....

Please.....a happy ending for Sam & Jack!!! Soon!!!

August 18th, 2006, 08:17 PM
I thought it was a great episode. They did manage to touch on just about everything from the past ten years that was of major significance. It was hysterical to understand the inside jokes from fandom. My hubby does not get into spoilers and forums and such so he does not know about the S/J debates, no clue what slash is, the comments on beaming out and all the fun stuff that goes on here.

He did get all the sci fi references and we both absolutely loved the Farscape snippet.

I think this was a fantastic, fun episode.

starfox
August 18th, 2006, 08:17 PM
This was great fun, especially the "Cam, he is your father" beat.

My only complaint is that they drew the "Team America" spoof out a bit too long.

It was Brad Wright as Scotty. And if that was his voice, it was VERY good. Couldn't tell if he actually voiced it, or if it was overdubbed.

The first 3/4 had some really funny moments, but that last bit I could've done without. Also, if they know they are doing stupid things then why continue to do them? Well, at least it was funnier than Wormhole Extreme.

TheUnknown
August 18th, 2006, 08:22 PM
I enjoyed all the inside jokes and thought it was a good episode, but IMO it was nowhere near as good as it was hyped up to be. The parody scenes were way too short, so those scenes were pretty much summed up in the commercials and weren't surprising.

August 18th, 2006, 08:25 PM
Oh, lord. I just got the 38 seconds crack the second time around--38 minutes before the wormhole dies out

This was great fun, especially the "Cam, he is your father" beat.

My only complaint is that they drew the "Team America" spoof out a bit too long.

My favorite part about the Team America part was Jackson drawing on the board and the monitor. Obviously a direct reference to the movie, but with scribbles.

i loved this ep one of the best spofs is when they had sg1 as a buch of kids. the Team America spoof last to long the first part of it was funny but then after that that not so much. also when danile and jack were waiting for cater in the wedding sceen was great. when danile said if cater doesnt show up soon people are going to think that there geting merryed. also when Mitchell said that thing about replaceing the lead charcter. oh and i all most forgot when jack was talking about that they show go fishing. then they show vala and mitchell there and jack said you werent there lol. the ending was kind of dispointing thou some of it was funny

I thought I'd laugh through this entire episode. And boy was I right.:) I thought this was a great way for TPTB and the actors to celebrate their 200th episode. Great job to all involved IMO. This truly was a "love letter" of sorts to us fans. I give it a 10/10 for what it meant to be. I still can't get over the Furlings. That was so great.:D

That was me, and unless I'm mistaken it was that whole thing with the younger characters. I can only base my theories on previews for BSG and from people who I know that never shut up about it...

starfox
August 18th, 2006, 08:33 PM
I feel the need to draw attention to the codpiece Teal'c was wearing in the Wizard of Oz scene, because that was all kinds of humorous. Also, Daniel-the-Lion's ultra bored look and the coffee mug just sold that shot for me.


Also, I feel like kind of a dork for liking the way they mention the title sequence before going to it, actually using the phrase "the act just ends", things like that.

And Mitchell's line about the viewers being sensitive, intelligent people who enjoy quality entertainment? Damn straight.

..I usually don't post these on the same night of viewing, but couldn't resist this time...

For starters, I had 2 versions of the intro sequence at both *live* viewings.
2nd viewing reaction first (not to give away the obvious just yet)...

"need a strong title sequence..."
"..are you kidding? no one does that any more. Just throw up the title and be done with it.." :D
{Stargate SG-1 suddenly flashes on screen with stargate in whoosh mode. END, snip}

ummm - was that a (crack) commentary by certain PTB against a certain other TPTB...??

1st reaction (same scene) --
my reaction..
.. "*whaaaaat?!!* that was *EVIL*..!!
2 seconds - if that?
...worse than the 8 second title sequence from last year. Maybe it was just a Station Break {network} announcement..." ;)

re: Act 3 --
"what happens at the end of Act 3..?"
"Act 3 just ends"
-- CUT -- commercial ...!! :D
hee-hee, that was as bad (mean / cruel, *playfully* evil) as the intro *title* sequence!

re: Vala's little {sighing} comment "well - never saw that one coming.."
Sam: "it's in the commercial..."
reaction - *riiiiiiiiight!*
wrong preview. :eek:
...now, how's that for deceptive advertising??? :p


As for the special "Inside Sci-Fi..." preview before the show started: all Black icing on the cake??
couldn't they at least put some sprinkly *sprinkles* stars on it, or was that not visible to a standard TV screen?

Kem Rixen
August 18th, 2006, 08:38 PM

Why in the world would that spoof that sort of TV show? Their audience is science fiction fans. Besides the Wizard of Oz which is referenced too in nearly every episode, everything was a sci fi spoof (except Gilligans Island, but that was only one line).

Indeed, it was the best.:)

And yes, I definitely think TPTB are more than aware of the various complaints fans have about this show. They may not always follow what people suggest, but they do listen.

No.....no, no, no. That was not a BSG parody lol, sorry. All the actors are really old and things are crazy serious (not in the "I'm pregnant" sort of way). As someone else pointed out it was more of an OC parody. But definitely not a BSG one.

Hmm...this ep worked in some areas and missed in others. Overall it was better and funnier than I thought it was going to be, I just wish it was more consistent.

Great stuff:
-invisible Jack. Best clip of the entire ep.
-the edgier SG1.
-various comments during the script discussions especially Teal'c's "I do not understand why everything in this script must inevitably explode." :D

Not so great stuff:
-the puppet spoof. Way too long.
-the ending with the fake interviews was an odd way to end the ep. Also way too long. (Was that PDL? And was Martin Wood in there as well?)
-the wedding. Just didn't see the point.


All in all I think this ep is targeted at the hardcore Stargate fan (i.e. - anyone posting on this board ;)), but I don't really think it's going to appeal to casual or new viewers. There's no way they're going to get all the inside jokes, especially the slew at the end (12 hits a month! Bwa! :D) and I think it's more likely to distance them from the show than bring them in. My prediction: ratings may be up for this ep but next week it'll be back down again.


(Was there really supposed to be a BSG parody? Where was it?)

The first thing I thought of when they said they wanted to replace them with "edgier" younger people was the new James Bond movie. But I could go with with BSG too, since they didn't want to remake the new series with the ORIGINAL stars of BSG.

Yes, but the new actors weren't younger (or edgier) than the originals were when they played the parts.

Sorry guys, I'm a huge BSG fan and I cannot see that part as a BSG parody. It just doesn't line up. If they were then Young Teal'c would have said "I would totally frak that" instead of "tap that".

As I said on another site, I hadn't actually expected slashers to get a nod so that was fun. I wish we could've seen the bits that were mentioned in Richard's TVguide interview:

Anderson goes off to rehearse the big wedding scene. Sam (Amanda Tapping) is the bride, and Daniel (Michael Shanks) is the best man. No doubt saluting the fans who want Jack and Daniel to hook up, they do a couple of "Brokeback" takes. In one, Richard takes the bouquet out of Amanda's hands and gives it to Michael. In another, Richard takes Michael's hand at the altar, which causes the assembled cast and crew to erupt in applause. (You'll just have to watch to see what ends up on air.)

TV Guide: That was cute, the hand-holding with Michael.

Anderson: [Laughs] Over the years, it's been alluded to, so we did that just for us.



I also loved the bit where Jack says "you weren't there" to Cam and Vala over the fishing thing.

what did you think the little weird look exchanged between jack and sam meant when the wedding sequence was over. was it hinting at a relationship they are hiding ?

or more likely was just another tease that means only what you want it to mean. kinda like the scene between agent barret and sam after she dumped the cop.

a little poking and prodding by the writers that may mean something or nothing or something that means nothing. or nothing that means something or....:cameron:

I loved it. From beginning to end, I loved it.

Let me say up front that the best part to me was why it was made the way it was. TPTB had said it was a love letter to the fans and I definitely felt as if someone had sat down and put together a special gift just for me. It a heartwarming series of special insider jokes was very personal, very special and for me it was the best part of the show.

Thanks Guys.

Ok, the funny!

Mitchell by far, had the best running gag in the show with the whole "replacing O'Neill thing". He had the best lines and carried them off so well. The one about not underestimating the audience was such an obvious suck up to the fans that I laughed so hard I nearly hurt myself. And the whole "O'Neill is your daddy" bit was priceless. I don't think I'll ever get over that one. :cameron:

The sci-fi homages were great. The Wizard of Oz, Star Trek - Farscape(!) and Team America had me rolling even though they weren't nearly long enough! (The show really should have been 90 minutes - it was a special occasion, after all. )I was so glad Hammond and Walter were included, even as puppets. I did miss Janet not being there but was tickled to see Siler get whumped once more.

And then there was Jack. Jack, Jack, Jack.

Not to take anything away from Ben Browder who has done a great job in what has to be a difficult situation, but I have missed Jack. It was so good to see Jack that it hurt. Loved all of the inside jokes regarding him - they were hilarious. Wanted to stay invisible, hiding out in the women’s shower room – that was so Jack. The slash wedding with the Stargate theme wedding march - oh man! Trying to explain this to my visiting parents as I'm dying from laughter made me laugh even harder from the looks on their faces.

I’ll stop because I could go on and on (and I will at the con next week) :sam43: but let me just say it was the best time I've ever had with Stargate. Thanks to everyone involved in the show writers, actors, crew, everybody. It was a great gift and I thank you for it.

The first thing I thought of when they said they wanted to replace them with "edgier" younger people was the new James Bond movie. But I could go with with BSG too, since they didn't want to remake the new series with the ORIGINAL stars of BSG.
Lol you're all looking too much into that statement. All Vala was referring to was her previous statement that the story lacked a sexy female alien.

Anyways, I thought it was great. I especially loved the Trek and Farscape skits. It was funny when Carter said she'd try to reverse the polarity (same inside joke from "Wormhole Xtreme" dvd commentary). Very good episode :). Hopefully will boost seasons ratings.

Why in the world would that spoof that sort of TV show? Their audience is science fiction fans. Besides the Wizard of Oz which is referenced too in nearly every episode, everything was a sci fi spoof (except Gilligans Island, but that was only one line).It was a reference to OC and other "teen angst" shows that have hit the air waves for years....

Why? Well.... for starters a reference to complaints that have been bandied about in fandom about the dumbing down and T&A'ing of the show? Or a nod to the fans comments that certain story arcs/casting/costumery has been to the target demographics (18-25 year olds) that SciFi here in the States has been trying to court heavily..... so there's lots of reasons they'd pop another show reference in there... :)


Thoughts after 2nd watching.....

Loved the witty Teal'c --- loved his lines with Invisible!O'Neill in the corridor even more 2nd time around. And the ever so dry "I believe this is intended to be a television movie" quip in the first act. :)

"All these writers and they couldn't come up with anything better?!" --Sam :D:D

And ooooohhhh that naughty Invisible!Jack! "Are you there, Sir?" (Sam in shower). Several beats. "Nope." (Invisible Jack.) LOL! And his attack of the Jaffa folowed by his "Hello? Hand signals..." lines to the rest of the team after they gated in.... :D :D

*sighs for the episode that never was!*

*grins* And I have to agree, the Puppet!Daniel's drawing on the write-n-wipe board and then the laptop screen just cracked me up.:)

And yeah, that had to be Brad on closer inspection. Definitely not Felger. :)

Again--- Thanks for a wonderful ep. :)

No doubt there is a movie in the works. I would doubt TPTB at SG1 would make such a reference to a Devlin-led feature film. There has been much talk about SG1's writers preparing a competing storyline as well. That is unless Devlin and the SG1 writers are working together....nah, that's as likely as us long suffering fans actually meeting a REAL Furling.

So, you already saw the Episode 200 of Stargate SG-1, and you already laughed until you're stomach started hurting, because the Episode was incredible good, fun, cool, ect.
I really liked this episode, and it was much better than Wormhole X-Treme.
So, how do you think that "200" was? what did you like most of this episode?

Hmm...this ep worked in some areas and missed in others. Overall it was better and funnier than I thought it was going to be, I just wish it was more consistent.

Great stuff:
-invisible Jack. Best clip of the entire ep.
-the edgier SG1.
-various comments during the script discussions especially Teal'c's "I do not understand why everything in this script must inevitably explode." :D

Not so great stuff:
-the puppet spoof. Way too long.
-the ending with the fake interviews was an odd way to end the ep. Also way too long. (Was that PDL? And was Martin Wood in there as well?)
-the wedding. Just didn't see the point.

<snip>


Yeah, I agree with these points, but overall I really enjoyed the ep. Many, many laughs.

Brillant episode. I was laughing the entire way through both showings! So many inside jokes and comments on what fans say here and on other websites, just loved it probably because I got all of them. Glad to see that after so long, they just don't take themselves too seriously and they are still having fun.

I think this episode had something for just about every fan. Comments on replacing the lead character, comments on the writing, missing the Hot Alien Babe! Comments on jumping the shark. Nods to Trek and Farscape. But I do think TPTB were right, either you'll love it or you'll hate it.

I don't think that the younger, edgier SG-1 was meant to spoof BSG, reminded me more of say the OC or One Tree Hill or other teen drama's like that, least that was my take on it. Didn't even occur to me that it was a nod to BSG.

Loved the puppets, probably because I loved Team America. Funniest part was just the over the top dialogue by all the characters. Carter going on about how the gate could work. Daniel saying the gate validated his theory on who built the pyramids and Hammond saying, we found it buried in the sand.

I almost would have prefered that they ended it on having the team walk through the gate. I liked how they shot that scene, with the original team going first, then the new people behind and Walter last, would have liked to have seen Siler go through though too!

But I did like the interviews with the Wormhole extreme cast, just funny spoofing on the actors and the fans themselves. PDL saying he replaced the original character after 7 years, 8 really but a lot of people saying the original just phoned it in the last season. Exactly what I've seen said here and other forums. I thought the cursing had to do more with some of the fandom complaining of lighter curse words, like damn or ***** being said on the show, since they thought SG1 was a family show and PDL saying they could say it since it was on cable.

My score 10/10, all around enjoyable episode that wasn't meant to be serious just people having fun doing what they love.

Edit--One thing I forgot to add, I loved how they played the theme song at the wedding. Reminds me of the episode where Carter was humming it in the elevator.

Just a "me too" post. I loved the whole episode. Even loved the corny bits and the puppets.

RE: the 'younger, edgier' SG-1. I thought that was supposed to be a reference to our aging actors overlaid on a funny parody of shows like "The O.C." -- I.E. What if "Stargate" had been like "Buffy"?

I'm probably one of the few who liked the "interviews" at the end--I especially liked the final comment by the "Teal'c-as-Robot" character:

"Science Fiction is an existential metaphor. It allows us to to tell stories about the human condition. Isaac Asimov once said 'Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and and philosphers of today. But the core of science fiction--it's essence--has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all.' "

It was a nice reminder of why we ll got into Sci/Fi in the first place.

Gateworld is back up yeah! Been waiting patiently to post on this eposide after seeing the 11 PM showing.

I must say I LOVED IT! Though it was a comedy eposide, I found myself glued to the set waiting for the next scene. All the scenerios were great. But what got me really LOL and truly rolling on the floor and gasping for air (my dog thought I was nuts) was the send up on my childhood favorite and most likely first exposure to sci - fi show - The Thunderbirds. (A little disappointed that the Sam characterization was not as good as the "guys".)

TPTB - you made up for s9 with this ep and the solid storylines so far with
s10.

The budget for 200 had to huge. The extras, key characters returning (not just RDA), the scenery,and especially all the costumes,make up, and cgi were top notch.

But it was stil a great episode! :)

August 18th, 2006, 09:41 PM
Better than Slimehole X-treme. Not the greatest thing ever. The skits were too short. Wished the Farscape one had been a little longer, and wouldn't have minded seeing a little of Vala's Gilligan's Island pitch. I liked the puppets. The teen SG1 was definitely an OC/Dawson's Creek rip off. (btw, that is not how I'd expect a younger version of Daniel to look -I know what it is. He looked older than the rest of the teens) Just because you're a scifi fan doesn't automatically mean you watch only scifi.

I know it was all goofy, but I couldn't help thinking in the "flashback" to the invisible Jack that Teal'c didn't have hair back then. Could have done without the Moebius ending, even with the jab at Mitchell and Vala not having been there, since the real ending is one of my most hated, and I didn't need to see it again. Like them saying that Jack's appearance would already be spoiled and in the commercial.

Once again, I don't care about the Worm infested X-Treme people, so the ending was just a bunch of nothing (yes, I recognized the shots at the real Stargate actors) but at least it wasn't 95% of the show taken up with those people.

So, fairly amusing, but my gut isn't busted and my sides aren't split.

Maybe the BSG commercial in between had more of an impression than someone realized?
PS: I did like the music in the first commercial ad for BSG. 2nd commercial ad was more like the finale to BSG's season 2. anywho... ;)

not to be taken the wrong way, and I'd like to hope RDA isn't the *only* reason to tune in to Stargate for more than 9 seasons... he started out as Daniel Jackson's bodyguard and rescuer in the movie and Season 1...
but {to the world without watching more of
Adria} *are you kidding??* (no, it won't appeal to everyone, sadly...) BUT

Next week's episode is {another cycle of} the beginning of possibly the BEST in SG eps - with Morena Baccarin starting as Adria,
in COUNTERSTRIKE (# 1007)

Been waiting since before Season 10 even started to see next week's ep. :)
Totally *Evil* beauty incarnate. {detest spoiler tags, but may be a necessity here} Also looking forward to Daniel's stint later that's been hinted at
with him showing up as a genuine Prior!
more than many triplicate OMGs!!! :eek:

and Michael Shanks has proven he's good at creating certain nuances and nusances (sp??), when he wants/needs to. ;)

KillerMercury
August 18th, 2006, 09:59 PM
One word: WOW

Defenitely the best comedic episode ever. At least in the Top 10 of all the episodes. We all definitely needed this.

All the little ideas from everyone is just brilliant. Granted, the puppet one went on for a little long, but it was still great.

Random thoughts:

1. "Previously on Stargate: SG-1:" [snip] (Furlings come on screen) Me: "Whoa! When did this happen? Wha--? Overgrown koalas as Furlings?! This never happened!" Yes, I'm stupid. It took me a while before I realized that it never occured. A little nod with my frustration with the 10 second opening sequence last year, too. They've done it again!

2. Invisible Jack. Hilarious! "Sir, are you there?" "...Nope"

3. Landry's floating head, and the three boys...funny how Vala's mind works. I wonder how that Gilligan's Island sequence would've been.

4. I loved Teal'c's face when "persuading" Martin about his idea. I miss him being all intimidate-y. It also took me some time to see that Isaac Hayes who is credited in the end, is actually the VO in this scene.

5. Over-enunciation on Star Trek. Never watched it, but this was awesome. Sam: *blinkblink*

6. "SG-1: Universe Police". Glad to see that Don S. Davis wasn't forgotten in celebration of 200. *starts singing* Stargate! **** yeah! Saving different worlds every ****ing week! [Note: put in the *s myself. I'm not that much of a potty mouth.]

7. When did "Stargate: OC" come on? It just shows how overrated some teen dramas are going nowadays (this coming from a teen). But I gotta say, the little overdramatic clips just made me roll on the floor laughing. Who did the younger Sam kiss, Jack or Cam? If it's the latter, does it mean something or am I just reading too much into this?

8. Sweet little wedding, with a little J/D slash reference thrown into the mix! Afterwards, slightly awkward moment. Wonder whose little fantasy was that? It could just be me. :love: = yes!

9. My favorite little sequence: Fargate. I adored how much MS got the little John Crichton bits down. The speech, the holding of the waist, constant looks...priceless. Then everybody just cursing out in alien...with Thor (I'm assuming it's him, I can't the difference) as Rygel! :jack_new_anime06:

10. The whole "Jack is your father" is HILARIOUS!

11. Peter and Brad in the house! Happy to see them flexing their acting muscles.

Overall, terrific episode! 10/10

And Star Trek--OMG! And the puppets. God, this entire episode was to die for. This entire show was priceless.

This episode so could have been the worst episode, but it was just cheezy enough that the writers pulled it off. It was because it was making fun of itself the entire time that it was so funny. I just loved it. and I didnt even notice until the end that there were no credits at all until the very end. :D Too busy laughing.

I laughed a lot though, no one escaped their satire, including themselves. But overall it was cute. Some montages were too short (Farscape), others were too long (the puppets, but very cute). Cute nods to shippers and slashers (but hey what about poor people like me who are not that into either between the team, hee hee, I'm kidding...really!)

I think I would've rather seen them all go through the Stargate and eat cake than the W-X interviews...they were interesting snark, but the whole episode was so meta...I did love Grell at the end though. And wow, DeLuise is looking great!

Best episode ever? I wouldn't go that far. But lots of fun, lots of laughter, and a nice change of pace. A true celebration of ten years/200 episodes of a show that's provided so much entertainment!

Sigh, I miss Jack, Thor, and Hammond (real Hammond, mind you), heh.

Oh, BTW, I thought the young team was like a Dawson's Creek thing? They weren't exclusively spoofing Sci-Fi. It was the industry and everything and general.

Here's that quote again for those who wanted it:




I'm probably one of the few who liked the "interviews" at the end--I especially liked the final comment by the "Teal'c-as-Robot" character:

"Science Fiction is an existential metaphor. It allows us to to tell stories about the human condition. Isaac Asimov once said 'Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and and philosphers of today. But the core of science fiction--it's essence--has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all.' "

It was a nice reminder of why we ll got into Sci/Fi in the first place.

i loved it, a very fantastic and hilarious episode, the joke on mitchell was pretty funny and also was vala trying to make up something hehe




i also love the side story of oniel being invisible:


Carter says, "Colonel, are you in here"


-long pause-


Oneill says casually, "nope"

This was an excellent 200th episode. I was pleased. Very well crafted by the writers who did a great job of subtly tying all of those little jokes together into an entertaining hour. The puppets were priceless and the Furlings were gold. The skits were all well played. The flow was well paced. Again, just a great job by the writers and the actors, and everyone involved.

The "twist" was probably my highlight. I have to admit, they really got me on that one. During the 8-9 special, when they mentioned Jack being invisible in the 200th episode, I thought, "Oh okay, I get it. It's another joke. He'll actually be on the episode but we'll never see him." Then when the did the puppet skit I was sure that that's what they were doing. So when Jack appeared on camera, I was at the other end of the field. Good job of misdirection. Nod to the writer. You got me... this time.

So, the team jumped the shark and came down with solid footing on the other ramp. If only it had worked as well for the Fonz.

Congratulations to the gang for an (monumental) episode well done, and thanks for entertaining the Dude for this long. The future looks good.

2 thumbs up for 2 hundred.

If only there would have been a Vala and Sam making out scene. The fantasia-like nature of the episode would've accomodated the scene nicely. Such a wasted oppurtunity.

My only complaint is that they drew the "Team America" spoof out a bit too long.

Ok - is it a generational thing? What's Team America? I thought the spoof was on the Thunderbirds :o :confused:

The Grell Doug Anders quote:

Science fiction is an existential metaphor. It allows us to tell stories about the human condition. Issac Asimov once said: "Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all."

Oops! Tracker got it before me, sorry. But Mesenet, "Team America" was a movie a couple of years ago by the "South Park" guys that was spoofing the "Thunderbirds".

August 18th, 2006, 10:27 PM
My favorite part about the Team America part was Jackson drawing on the board and the monitor. Obviously a direct reference to the movie, but with scribbles.
This "Team America" parody went right by me. I had no idea what it was, so I just looked it up on the internet. THE PUPPET MOVIE! A puppet movie?! Who goes to see puppet movies? I have a feeling a huge percentage of the audience didn't get that one. If they start referencing Anime, I'm going to go to Vancouver to have a talk with Joe Mallozzi. :P

And what's with all the swearing? Contrary to the person quoting Nathan, I didn't hear a lot of profanity on the set. Of course, it could be a Peter DeLuise thing.


Otherwise I liked most of it, especially the Invisible O'Neill lost episode.

Hilarious! I loved it. I personally thought Mitchell and Vala stole the show. I was rolling when they did the spoof on Farscape. Fantastic. That and the 1969 joke on Mitchell were my fav parts.
Funniest episode I've seen.
Did you guys see the inside look at the episode? I would love to know how many Teal'c has said "Indeed." But what about Mitchell and how many times he says "What?"

Great episode. :cameron:

To be honest, after reading all of the spoilers, I really expected this episode to be entirely cringe-worthy so maybe that's why I was so pleasantly surprised. I laughed my entire way through this episode. As someone who actually liked Wormhole X-treme I can say that this was even better. Way better. I had worried that, instead of the homage to the fans that they were touting it would be a kind of jab at the fans instead but it really wasn't. While they had their fun with everybody, and I do mean everybody, it was done in a light-hearted way and, in fact, they made more fun of themselves than they did the fans. It was so great to see Jack again, however limited it was. To see him with the team again and going through the gate was such a wonderful nostalgic thing. I really have no complaints about the episode at all and I can't wait to watch it again.

BTW, Peter DeLuise...WOW.

I thought some parts of the 200 were funny. But it would have been nice if they did this another time and not for the 200th episode. It would have been nice to use this as a very serious or epiphany episode. Like Smallville did with Reckoning.

That's what the season premier/season finale/midseason premier/midseason finales are for.

For an one-and-only episode like the 200th, TPTB should have the privilige to think outside the box.

I wasn't sure what to expect, I wasn't a big fan of Wormhole x-Treme.

This was fantastic. Loved it and was laughing or snickering the whole time through. Ending was a bit lame but I thought it was cool that Walter had a nice part in this episode. Really loved the Farscape and Star Trek spoofs and just fell off my chair with the invisible Jack scenes. The exchange between Jack and t'ealc was priceless.

Great episode.

I really enjoyed it! I laughed SOO incredibly hard at the farscape scene! And the wizzard of oz, and the furlings. I was cracking up at all the inside jokes and puns.

Though, I did think that the puppet scene was a little to long, after awhile I was kinda like, aum... can we get on with the rest of the episode?

In my opinion, they had a wonderful episode going, but the last 5 minutes left a bitter aftertaste. I could have gone without that thank you very much.

But I must say, Wormhole Xtreme I thought was a better episode. It had more the feeling of a stargate episode, while 200 was just a mish-mash of jokes from over the years and didn't really have a true plot like Xtreme did. That's what I enjoyed about Xtreme, it had a plot, and it felt like a real episode that just so happened to poke some fun at the show.

:jack_new_anime06: :jack_new_anime07: That was funny! I really liked this one. I'm not going to say it was one of my favorites, but it was good. I'll mention the things I didn't like first. For one thing, the ending was a little confusing. I didn't really get the joke, for the most part. I did eventually get that the guy with the beard was supposed be MS and PDL was BB, but I didn't get it besides that. Also, the part with the original team going through the gate, while I loved that I didn't get whether it was really supposed to be happening in the show, or if it wasn't. If so, how did Walter change so fast? :p But my main complaint is that the parody scenes weren't long enough.

Now, for the things I liked. I loved the spoofs, they were the best thing about the episode (next to Jack coming back, of course) and I agree that each one should have been longer. Especially the Star Trek and Farscape ones, those were the best! And when Siler gets thrown back onto the wall and goes, "Why does this always happen to me?!" That was really funny! And scene with the Furlings was really dumb... in a funny way! And Walter being in a lot of scenes, including the last one going through the gate. Awesome. All the inside jokes for us fans were totally awesome! Obviously TPTB really do lurk here a lot... Thanks, guys! :D

I'm sure there's a lot of things I forgot to mention (I tend to... not be able to... think... sometimes).

But thanks to everyone who worked on this episode! :D It was really fun.

No doubt there is a movie in the works. I would doubt TPTB at SG1 would make such a reference to a Devlin-led feature film. There has been much talk about SG1's writers preparing a competing storyline as well. That is unless Devlin and the SG1 writers are working together....nah, that's as likely as us long suffering fans actually meeting a REAL Furling.
I believe their will be a featur film just as I beleive we wil get another season. I bet the movie will hapen shortly after the series finale. And no they will not use Devlin. His vison is compleatly differnt from SG-1. We will get our own movie.

Oh man, it was way better than I ever expected.

My mom (I've finally turned my mom into a Stargate viewer) didn't understand the Furlings. I had to explain that one to her (she thought it was an Ewoks reference, so she's half right).

My favorite was Vala's Fargate pitch. Frelling genius.

The Team America segmet was great too, I think that might have been my second favorite pitch.

Great episode, laughed my ass off from start to finish, though I was expecting a little more of O'Neil and the end was kinda abrupt, only because I was enjoying myself so much I lost track of the time.

I do have to say though, that the Furlings intro was just absolutely classic! They finally meet the furlings, and low n behold they lead the badguys to them and attempt to help, can't, then nod and say sorry and beam right out and as the ewok kowoala furling bangs on the console (I could just see him saying "You g*dd&mn f**ck(rs!!!!" And then BOOM ! That type of sh*& has been going on episode after episode when they meet new people, so I felt so gratified they finally recognized it, and on the furlings no less!

The puppets were another classic part, especially when O'Neil's character was introduced and when Daniel starts scribbling his nonsense all over the dialer. And the strings cutting = awesome. Was it just me or did they actually get Don Davis as Hammond??

The spoofs on other shows were great, and I think i noticed a joke on Firefly in regards to Daniel commenting: "C'mon, who makes a movie based on a series that went for 3 episodes?!?" and the subsequent movie Serenity but I may be wrong.

Landry as the floating Wizard head was also a kodak moment. The nod towards a movie was also great at the end (possibly).

Cute nods to shippers and slashers (but hey what about poor people like me who are not that into either between the team, hee hee, I'm kidding...really!)




I'm also someone who isn't into either. What if they had had both the ship and slash nods, but instead of Martin saying that would torture the audience on purpose, one of the team might have said something like "why do they have to imply that any of them are in a relationship? What's wrong with a strong friendship being the focus of the show?" That would have covered every persuasion.

No "we're peaceful vistors" but I liked Daniel's sincere "we'd thought we'd never meet you" even if it never actually happened.

memnarch
August 18th, 2006, 11:52 PM
In a word: Awesome! The parodies were hilarious! Farscape! "I have no idea what you're talking about..." All the characters were awesome, parodying themselves, like Daniel with the coffee, Teal'c's "indeed" while a private investigator, and Sam's endless technobabble. My favorite scene (and it was hard to choose) had to be the wedding scene, if only for walter's sobbing and Sam's "jack." I also loved Sam's hopeful look after their pitch! :) Although, the episode wasn't without it's flaws. The furlings were a disappointment, especially since their portion came right after the previously on segment and there was virtually no segway, which left me confused. Also, at times it seemed like the characters were almost breaking the fourth wall, like Sam's line about the spoilers and commercials. Additionally, I thought the puppet sequence went a bit long, though I did enjoy walter's "I feel SO stupid"

Overall, however, an unforgettable episode which deserves 4/4 stars

Favorite moments:
Star Trek Sam: blink blink
Puppet SG-1 falling in a heap after going through the gate.
Teal'c staring down Martin over Teal'c PI
Sam and Jack wedding! Woo Hoo! And a reference to the slash fandom.
The four members of the original team walking up the gate ramp!

In the live discussion thread, I got the impression that nobody felt this was a "legit" episode. In other words, next week, nothing we saw in 200 will be counted as having happened.

It was just a little lark, not to be taken as part of the real storyline.

How do the rest of you feel?

Did the events shown in 200 (the "Wormhole X-treme" movie, Mitchell's 200th gate trip, etc) actually happen in the STARGATE universe, or was everyone just taking a week off and having a little fun?

killerz298
August 19th, 2006, 12:07 AM
I am going to have to replace my Tivo remote due to all the rewinding I did during this episode. I haven't laughed that hard in a LONG time!!

I totally agree with what another poster said, "Previously on Stargate: SG-1:" [snip] (Furlings come on screen) Me: "Whoa! When did this happen? Wha--? Overgrown koalas as Furlings?! This never happened!" Yes, I'm stupid. It took me a while before I realized that it never occurred. (I played this part at least 5 times till I realized WTF was going on.)

My favorites:

1. Teal'c face as the Tin man. I just couldn't handle it!! (can someone post a HQ cap of that??)

2. Was trying to decide if what they were saying about 1969 was somehow true (it was such a wacky episode it could have been!)

3. Loved the fact that not only did Carter HAVE to ask if Jack was in the locker room, he actually was!!

4. I replayed the young SG-1 at least 5 times "I was still gonna tap that!"

5. Teal'c PI - INDEED! And just Teal'c in general. I really didn't like his character at the start of the series but once he started lightening up and saying stuff so "out of character" I started to absolutely LOVE his comments and interactions (especially when talking about Earth related topics).

6. Anything Jack, in any way shape or form!

7. The whole original team walking through the gate. Wish they had Hammond of Texas there too.

And MANY MANY MORE!!

The only thing I missed was there not being any Jacob (and I don't care for her much but others do - Janet), although I guess it would have been too much of a downer, especially for Sam. I really liked Jacob and would have liked the chance to see him in action once again.

But, could some one please please please tell me what teh teal'c from worm whole extreme said towards the end of the episode it was something about scifi and i missed it because people were talking and i really wanna know what it was that he said.

honestly I think thats just up to the veiwer...200 was more of a love letter the the veiwers than a arch driven ep...I.E. Walter going through the gate...never been seen before...so they put it in for that reason and that reason only...truth be told though...I really was hoping to see RDA vs. Ori

Awesome Episode!

I think I got most of the references...i'll have to re-watch in the morning to double check ;)

But there was so much great things about this episode
- Quite happy to see the gang back together with some Old School Sg-1 moments
- invisible jack!.
- Some Jack n Sam Weddings..but of course..they only TEASE you with it =p
- Puppet Hammond and the Movie "redone"...
- Ferrlings! I watched this with some friends and they were like "HOW MANY EPISODES DID I MISS?!? WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN"...hahahaha
- The Farscape reference was awesome. I wasn't really a fan of the show, but, with so many mains being from there, they had to do something
- The part about jack's "enterance" not being a surprise because "it got out" (gateworld?) and "the promo would of shown it" was quite humerous.
- Jack going through the Gate and dragging everyone with him...good stuff

Anyways, great fun episode. My only complaint was having to watch a pretty boring Atlantis episode (saved by Jack and Sheppard really...)...but, that's for another thread ;)

Now here's the scary question..how many of those "episode ideas" were seriously considered as real episodes by the writers =p

L.A. Doyle

Nice episode overall.

The Furlings were cute, but I hope we can meet the REAL ones someday.

Most of the segments were too short! I wanted more, especially with the wedding. :(

The puppets were so hilarious! Daniel trying to write, but it was just scribble, and Sam's technobabble! Plus when they went through the gate, it killed them! :eek:

Jack being invisible was priceless!!! And he was in the locker room!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol:

I'd watch Teal'c P.I.! :)

"Yo, Wonderbread!" :D :D

The end was not too funny...especially not the catch phrase bit...

But it was an alright ep. :)

Something that went over my head before. When Daniel asks why he's there, and Landry says it's to make sure the Airforce is portrayed properly, I didn't realize he was about to say that he's not military. And, apparently, Jack knew he would say that, so he requested him especially so he couldn't get out of it.

August 19th, 2006, 02:25 AM
It truly was a nod to the fans! From replacing the lead actor line by Mitchell to "not mention him (lead actor) at all" like they really did for season 9 with O'Neill. The end interview with X-treme actress imitating Tapping on how she thinks the writers don't know where to take her character -I have seen those very same discussions on Sam floating around on the Gateworld forum.. and this episode was shot WAY before those threads came up. So, it does look like the showrunners has a very good idea of how the audience are reacting to the show.

Like many have already said, the puppet sequence was a tad long.. I don't really care for puppets. And while it's nice to acknowledge all the shippers and slashers out there.. writers.. -please- don't cop out and actually have the show end on S/J ship. Stay focus on the friendship! I do love the fact that Daniel was Jack's best man.

I was really tickled when Sam and Daniel teased Mitchell about Jack being his father.. but then... it's official that Mitchell is YOUNGER than Daniel by around 5 years.. while, in real life, Shanks is YOUNGER than Browder by.. I think 8. That's.. 'ironic' is the wrong word. I just think it's funny.

All the parodies are fun and I loved them, I just enjoyed the jab at themselves and the nods to fans more. I loved it. I loved the writers for acknowledging us. As they have thanked us fans numerous times, I want to give a HUGE Thank You to them for giving us Stargate.

I thought Carter looked amused while O'Neill was trying to figure out what the heck was going on. That's just me though, I'm so extremely anti-ship. I much prefer the team focus than a contrived romance.

Vala and Carter as Ginger and Mary-Ann.

Thought that I was going to get crap, and it came out gold. I don't know about everyone else, but the puppet scene wasn't too long to me, it was just right, especially the end when they walked through the gate, and their wires were severed, that was funny. The ending, that was a bit odd, but when General Landry called Walter, I thought that was fitting, about time he got to go through the gate. Vala, as I have already stated in another thread was great, every idea that she had was funny, Farscape most certainly. Rygel at the end, "yotz." Teal'c P.I., hahahhahha, "Indeed," and that look he gave Martin when it seemed he didn't approve, fantastic! Fishing, given by Jack O'Neill, two L's for you, that was the feeling of the people.

Funniest.
1. The Wizard of Oz
1a. Farscape
2. The Furlings
3. Gilligan's Island
4. Fishing
5. Teal'c P.I.
6. Vala's comment about Mitchell when his zombie pitch was shot down.

One of my most favorite parts was the Marionette Hammond wanting the stargate to spin, because HE was the general and spinning was way COOLER than NOT spinning..! :D :D :D LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In the live discussion thread, I got the impression that nobody felt this was a "legit" episode. In other words, next week, nothing we saw in 200 will be counted as having happened.

It was just a little lark, not to be taken as part of the real storyline.

How do the rest of you feel?

Did the events shown in 200 (the "Wormhole X-treme" movie, Mitchell's 200th gate trip, etc) actually happen in the STARGATE universe, or was everyone just taking a week off and having a little fun?

i think jack will be at the base at the start of next week, therefore everything that "happened" really happened but the discussions were just talk

Another great moment that passed right by was during the "inisible Jack" sequence. When Daniel is at the whiteboard he says, "so, if we decipher the symbols on the tablet we will have the greatest power in the universe" or something like that. HILARIOUS! That is sooooo SG-1!

Not too happy with the ending either as I wanted as much from the "real" SG-1 chars as possible but hey, was still funny :)

While I am a relative newcomer to the forums at Gateworld, I've been an avid fan of "Stargate SG-1" for years, so picture me waving and smiling and saying "Hello" to everyone.

Okay, now that we're past that and you've stopped laughing at me (admit it, you are!), I repeat my question, "Who was disappointed by "200"?

I wasn't disappointed by the episode, it was hysterical, but I was disappointed by how the episode was misrepresented by the trailers. Of course, it was supposed to be misrepresented, but that's another story altogether.

I really don't get why so many people seem to still think that the quality of the stories on "SG-1" is getting worse. As I said earlier, I've been an avid fan for years, plus I have Seasons 1 thru 8 on DVD and have continued to watch and it's just as good if not better. I love it when RDA shows up and would love it if he returned full time, even if that's unlikely.

Anyways, just wanted to throw in my two cents and see where it goes.

OK, first let me comment on the first 57 minutes of it.

It was so totally funny! My favorite bit, while lasting maybe three seconds, was when Vala and Cam decided to pop up in that fishing scene from Threads. I loved all the jokes, from the Wizard of Oz to Farscape (and apparently nobody having heard of it), and that invisible O'Niell bit was teriffic, too.

Man, they just made fun of every sci-fi franchise out there, didn't they? From Star Wars to Star Trek (BB played the stupidity of Kirk to perfection). I loved every joke, every jab at themselves, and Walter got to be in this one!

Now the last three minutes. Not so great. I enjoyed some of it (the save Doctor Whatever his name was, they don't know where to take the woman's character's direction, etc.), but they definitely could have done without the bleeping. Also, I felt that the philosphical speech given at the end was totally ridiculous, and not in the good way.

Alright, long post. In a smaller way, the show tops Wormhole X-treme with everything to do with SG-1 and the SGC. Wormhole X-treme tops this one however when it comes to the behind-the-scenes extra for Wormhole X-treme. I give this a 4/5 because of that. Keep the good comedy coming, and keep the bleeping stuff away, please. :cool:

That's a heavily skewed distribution to the positive end. "Mixed" would have been more evenly distributed or have two "tails"--a bulge at the bottom AND a bulge at the top.

I'm actually pretty surprised because there do seem to be some people who hated it more than that. Maybe they haven't voted. I was having trouble with the website last night myself.

THE PUPPET MOVIE! A puppet movie?! Who goes to see puppet movies? I have a feeling a huge percentage of the audience didn't get that one.

Really?!? I would disagree... I would place my bet that only a minor percentage of the audience didn't get the reference.

First off... didn't Brad Wright say in the special that his favorite part was the puppet scene because he was a Team America fan?

Secondly this movie was pretty big back in the day, not only because it was made entirely with puppets. But because several politicians and government types were advocating the people not to see the movie.

Because it takes digs at America's foreign policies...

Anyway... It was a great movie, one of the funniest in my book. I would venture the guess that even if you didn't see the movie most people heard about it or read about it in the newspaper

Lol you're all looking too much into that statement. All Vala was referring to was her previous statement that the story lacked a sexy female alien.

Just so you understand where I'm coming from, this is why I thought of James Bond when that line was mentioned. This was part of the official announcement for the new James Bond character:

"Daniel Craig, of mediocre gangster flick Layer Cake fame, has been announced as the new "younger, edgier" James Bond 007 in a press conference today. "

I was a little disappointed the first time I watched it - I kept waiting for the bits I was spoiled on (Farscape, Wizard of Oz, etc) and they were SO short. And it seemed a little slow.

But then the second time I just sat back and enjoyed all the silly bits and all the in-jokes and sight gags and it was fun.

Favorite bits:

*"Invisible Jack" was hilarious....I would have liked to have seen that episode. Especially the bits with Teal'c and "invisible Jack" drinking the coffe. "I can see right thru you "O'Neill".

* Farscape was fun but too short. But a stroke of genius casting Thor as Rygel. :D :D

* Wizard of Oz. The best part was the sight gag of the boys in costume. Which of course had already been spoiled. But still cute.

* The original team heading up the ramp at the end......*nostalgia time*

* Vala and Cam joining the team "fishing" at the end of Moebius and Jack shouting "you weren't there!" RDA was great delivering that line.

* The pseudo nods to the Jack/Sam ship and the Daniel/Jack slash at the "wedding" kind of made me roll my eyes but it was fun to see all the fandom wank acknowledged. I think. :cool:

*The puppets were kind of fun I thought but it did go on a little long. I got the "Team America" reference having seen an ad for that movie.

*Teal'c PI. Short but cute. CJ was great in this whole episode. :) OMG.....and I just read that Isaac Hayes did the voiceover for that. I thought that voice was familiar. Hee!

Really, some of the best were all the nods to the stuff that gets talked about on these forums day in and day out.

The convenient "beaming out", the "easy escapes not being shown", "why does everything have to explode in this script?", "why can't they just mention the character who's gone a lot"?, etc., etc. Lots of nods to fandom and the writers poking a bit of fun at themselves as well. These writers spend *way* too much time reading these boards. LOL.


I didn't care for the whole SG-1 /OC parody. But maybe that was intended since I suspect that's a jab at the network (or studio) for pushing them to get sexier and younger. Either that or I thought it might be a reference to that time a couple of years ago when MS and AT were holding out and they floated those casting sheets for their new younger replacements to be ready to go if they didn't sign. ;)


I actually laughed at the Wormhole X-Treme "interviews" at the end - they really poked fun at the actors but hopefully they all took it in stride. Edited to add: Oh, and it took me several minutes to recognize PDL! He was a cutie before but he's really looking like quite the hardbody stud muffin now. ;)

But I would have rather seen them just gate thru and then cut to the actual cake and party they had on set for all the original cast, crew and actors.

I did thoroughly enjoy the special beforehand. Usually those lowdowns are really ads for the new season but this hour featured wonderful interviews of the entire cast - and nice pieces with Brad and Rob - reflecting on the 10 years of Stargate and their experiences with the show. Really loved it. :)

Thanks for 10 years. And thanks for bringing RDA back for the episode - it wouldn't have been the same without him.

I think im at the point where I dont really want to see the ship onscreen. I loved the tension over the years, dont get me wrong. But I think all it needs, is just a simple reference or mention of their relationship confirming or denying either way, to suffice us shippers.

I keep watching it again and i love the fishing joke.

This "Team America" parody went right by me. I had no idea what it was, so I just looked it up on the internet. THE PUPPET MOVIE! A puppet movie?! Who goes to see puppet movies? I have a feeling a huge percentage of the audience didn't get that one. If they start referencing Anime, I'm going to go to Vancouver to have a talk with Joe Mallozzi. :P

Team America was definately a political satire that came out during the 2004 Presidential election or right before, can't remember. If you are not into politics you probably weren't interested. It was a great satire that pretty much lambasted the Hollywood actors. It was all about Patriotism. It also was a very bloody, disgusting movie that you probably wouldn't want your children to see. ( I have to add that every time I see Kim Jong Il now I have to laugh because I always think he looks just like his Team America puppet...lol).

Devlin can leave the series alone. With such a massive fanbase for the show, if they make SG1 or an original movie sequel SG1 would make more money because of the fans. Im sure that if SG1 ends this season on a cliffhanger (which it probably will be) they will conclude it in a film.

200 is awesome, the only thing i "disliked" about it was that we didnt get to see Don S. Davis i.e Hammond in flesh and blood. It was nice to "see" in puppet mode and it was hillarious, but i would really like to see him for example in the wedding scene he should of been there IMO.
I always though that Hammond should of came back instead of Landry, but that just me.

Yes, would loved to have seen a serious episode. While there were some good yuks in the episode, the ending was a letdown - same old stuff as "wormhole x-treme." There was no way it could live up to the hype. RDA, well, he did a LOT better job in "Real World" than in "200".

GateTraveler
August 19th, 2006, 07:02 AM
I think "no doubt" is a very strong statement. There is very much doubt. I don't believe they will do one while the show is running and ending the season with a cliffhanger to be resolved in a feature film would be a horrible idea. Mini-series? Maybe. Feature film? No way! What member of the general public (non-SG1 fans) would go see a movie that is the 2nd part of a 2-part story?

Frankly, I don't see an SG1 movie happening at all. Devlin's might fly because it doesn't have ties to the series. It's hard for us fans to see it given our love of the show but there just wouldn't be much interest by the "Average Joe" in paying 10 bucks to see a movie based on a TV series they never watched. Serenity proved that.

The reference at the end may refer to a future TV movie. Remember at the beginning T'ealc said the script was for a TV movie - not a feaure film. I can see the series being resolved by something like that.

This was the worst episode of SG-1 yet IMHO 0/10. There was no plot just a bunch of crappy cut-scenes and clips. RDA was barely even in the ep and he did nothing at all. So I hated the whole ****ing episode.


God I'm so mad! There screwing up the whole franchise there went my hopes for season 11.

I liked this episode and thought it was a very good stand alone episode. Good to see RDA. Loved the Furlings part. I think what had me laughing the hardest though was the entire Farscape scene and it being an obscure show.

I love how Stargate has no problem poking fun at itself and being able to see the humor in things.

Everybody is saying Team America, but I immediately thought Thunderbirds.

That's just me though.

It was my fave part of the ep though. When they go thru the gate and their strings are cut. ROFLPIMP!!! Teal'c laughing and walking away.

I could be wrong but im pretty sure it was a team america reference as they showed the strings and the puppety movements (keyboard typing, drawing etc) and when they went through the gate they strings were cut adn they fell.

That was, without doubt, the worst bit of telly I've ever seen. Makes me never want to see Stargate again, it was the worst thing ever. I was hoping the spoilers were wrong, and that this rubbish was better than it sounded. Alas, no. Rubbish. Makes me want to sell all my dvds on ebay and never watch gate again.



While I am a relative newcomer to the forums at Gateworld, I've been an avid fan of "Stargate SG-1" for years, so picture me waving and smiling and saying "Hello" to everyone.

Okay, now that we're past that and you've stopped laughing at me (admit it, you are!), I repeat my question, "Who was disappointed by "200"?

I wasn't disappointed by the episode, it was hysterical, but I was disappointed by how the episode was misrepresented by the trailers. Of course, it was supposed to be misrepresented, but that's another story altogether.

I really don't get why so many people seem to still think that the quality of the stories on "SG-1" is getting worse. As I said earlier, I've been an avid fan for years, plus I have Seasons 1 thru 8 on DVD and have continued to watch and it's just as good if not better. I love it when RDA shows up and would love it if he returned full time, even if that's unlikely.

Anyways, just wanted to throw in my two cents and see where it goes.

i dont know why people are saying how they completly hated this ep. the whole point of the episode was a tribute to the true fans of the series and i think many of the fans did love the episode for that and all the jokes they made from happens in the series like the writing out of oniel, siler asking why its always him etc.

Are you kidding?? It was an awfull waste of an episode totaly stupid not the and far beklow what I would expect from Stargate. I have ereally liked all of season 10 untill now. The appearance of RDA was a joke like 10 minutes in which nothing at all happend? I wish they could have thought of something interesting for the big 200 or even for the 100 but atleast the 100th had a plot. Instead of a few old clips like the 200th.

Rant 1% complete.

Well, you have all surprised me beyond anything I thought possible. I was certain all I would be reading was a long series of pans about the 200th epidoe. I myself was disappointed, but I think my expectations were too high. I truly enjoyed the show and even watched it a second time and caught more jabs than I did the first time around.

I agree with the majority of your posts... and I'm very happy you enjoyed the show. I'm certain the actors, writers and producers wanted to make us laugh....at the show, themselves, and even us, as fans. But I did come away with the feeling that it was their way of saying "thanks" for watching us for 10 years.....without you, there wouldn't be an "us".

200 did have a plot though, they had to help the film guy from the 100th episode besides that just making fun of alot of the plots and stories theyve done

I new not everyone would like it. But I guess they figured most of the fans have been around for a while and would appreciate all the jokes that come with the fandom. They kind of nodded their heads at almost every fan oppinion all in one episode. I thought they did a fab job.

200 was great, would have loved to see some more of Jack dough, there should have been more of him in sg1 then on The Real World instead.

Hope we one day see the real furlings, and they don't look like in this episode (when I first saw promo pics I feared the Wizard Of Oz midgets were the furlings)

Also would have liked to see Hammond appear, and then also join the team off-world at the end


8/10

Ok i always said that "200" would make or break stargate and after watching it im sooo torn about wheather or not it was good.
It was, it was good, it was a good spoof episode and the puppet show was really funny, i even enjoyed the wedding and im not a shipper. Everything about stargate was portrayed in the episode but one thing that really got highlighted was something the PTB had tried so hard to cover up. Mitchel has become oniels replacement and this episode just uses that to hurt the show soo badly; from the mission 30185, to the exclusion of the team in the zombie scene to jack saying " you weren there" its like this entire episode was on the one hand about saying year this is such a big landmark but then on the otherhand it was *****slapping the entrance of the new characters.

I think 200 was a good episode and for along time i was its biggest critic, on some level i still am because if you look in to the episode on anything more than a superficial level then you will hate it. If i watche it in 10 years i think it will dawn on me how much of an insult some aspects were and if this was supposed to truely represent thing that the fans want, like the abismal furling's then it is a failure, however if it is a simple gander in to the continuing themes of the show, like the parodies to other shows then it is a success.

200 is a landmark, but wheather this landmark is to be treasured or forgotten, well wait 10 years and see. Personally my mind isnt totally made up on wheather it did make or break Sg...one thing we know, the writers can't use any of those paradies again :(

*Edit*

A mention about the obvious things that they did and my reaction to them:
Furlings: I dont think ive ever been more insulted by the producers, even when it was from martain lyodd the idiot's perspective i was still shook to the core about what the hell they thoguht they were trying to say abotu the fans. The furlings in 200 would have been worthy enough as the landmark, but doing them in such a way, they did not come off as comical but a complete failure creatively by TPTB. Not happy about that :(
Jack return: I didnt think Sg needed jack anymore, i was content with Mitcheal and still am, i enjoyed the with him in, i like the invisible thing and the puppet and he was a nice feature. I still think that the show can move pass jack and the sooner his shaddow isnt being cast over mitchel the better
J/S Wedding:I eenjoyed this actually, it was a cool wedding and exactly how i would put thier wedding, with thor as a officiator. it was the one thing that was a clear fan-motevated event, that i liked.
Wizard of Oz: Should have came from jack but i think Vala twist on it was quite cool, i love vala and her alienness, i missed that from tealc after a while and now we get it form her so im glad..

I dont think any character was badly portrayed, except daniel and the meaning of life stuff with jack falling asleep though it was funny.

Episode overall was funny but in the wrong places, when it tried to be funny like the furlings and technobable it wasnt; but when it was just simple team interactions, like jack drinking the coffee and tealc's " i can see right through you" then it was hillarious and i had a grin most of the way through the episode.

I may write propper review of that episode in time.

Thanks for 10 years. And thanks for bringing RDA back for the episode - it wouldn't have been the same without him.
definitely!!! :jack:
