What was it, Stargate night tonight? Kavan, Salli, Ming, what's her face that played Novak, and what's his face from SGU. Wow!

Aside from that. I love how Allison needed to push back from everyone wanting to mollycoddle her. She's not that type at all! Enjoyed how they addressed the perception that Zane didn't respect Jo's intelligence in the previous timeline. I never quite bought into that.

Fargo and Co are so on their way to Titan - not Wil Wheaton though. He so failed to see the larger picture. People need to stop and deal with crises in the middle of their given tasks everyday and he so failed.

yeah, his singular focus to waste time on a menial task instead of saving his crew's life kinda doomed him. (which was expected, they aren't going to keep a guest star around for so many episodes)

it did kinda touch on something I'd imagine would be a real issue if eureka was a real town....those with degrees 'proving' how smart they are looking down on those that might be just as smart, just not in the 'book learnin'' category.

intelligence is more than degrees and IQ points

I forgot to mention:

Henry and Grace are getting married!! It's a first for Henry, right? I've always got a "bachelor" sort of vibe from him. Do we count the alternate - alternate timeline where he was married to Kim in S1? So confusing. Nice to see them work through those singlehood vs couplehood issues.

i guess it was. nice to see those actors again. :) those bugs....mini replicators? since it was stargate nite.

Plus Wil ruined his chances w her. She now sees who the better person is.....Fargo.

OK episode.

I really liked this one. Good chemistry all around, and I love any episode that's Andy-heavy.

Thought I had seen the last of replicators. Seems I was wrong.
Loved the scenes with Jo and the crew inside the test module, once again I could exercise my dislike for Wheaton's character:P

Well if you're including Salli, then you also need to include Niall (Zane), as he did SGA twice and the actor who plays Vincent (he did SGA as well). I love it when actors I recognise from other shows appear in other shows I enjoy.

Yeah it is his first time, as his last relationship (Kim) was very much doomed as something always happened.

Overall a really enjoyable episode. Beverly ordered an upgrade to Andy when she took over as director of GD, so I was expecting to see if that would have any unexpected consequences this episode but it's possible it will happen towards season end. Hopefully it means something good for Kavan. I'm enjoying that the show has a story going on rather than some scientist of the week screwing up.

I am loving Wheaton. He fits all the characteristics of the standard scientist of the week, that one guy who screws everything up and for half the episode denies it's his work, but at the same time, he's not there because he's a friend of a main character, but his character works so well with Fargo and Holly. I'm also enjoying the relationship between Zane and Jo starting over again, as it's good to see them actually develop a relationship than jump into it during the prime timeline.

Ok, I'll give you Vincent (even though I don't remember him on this ep) as he was on AoT briefly. But I really don't remember Niall (Zane) being in any episodes of Stargate. Which ones?

I don't remember him either, but according to IMDb he played Lt Kemp in Tabula Rasa and BAMSR. I'm drawing a complete blank though - I would have thought I would have been all "oh look it's Zane" but nothing's ringing a bell. :S

And apparently Chris Gauthier (Vincent) was in the episode Trinity. I don't remember that either though (although I do remember his appearance in AoT). Maybe he was the scientist that got killed?

Everlovin

Yeah, I've got nothing for either of those.

I remember Vincent in Trinity, but it's weird as I watched Ark recently and didn't remember him in it until someone mentioned it. As for Trinity, he was the guy who told Teyla that other Satedans had survived.

As for Zane, remember him in BAMSR as his team were killed by the Asurans when they attacked the planet he was on. If Killdeer (and IMDB) is right about him doing two episodes, I don't remember the other.

OK, I vaguely remember that now.....sorta.


As for Zane, remember him in BAMSR as his team were killed by the Asurans when they attacked the planet he was on.

OH yeah!!! Now I remember him - it was just a small part at the beginning right? Weird that I never connected him with Zane though.


If Killdeer (and IMDB) is right about him doing two episodes, I don't remember the other.

Well I'm just going off what IMDb says, and it says the same character was also in Tabula Rasa. I don't remember him in it though.

he was a member of Lorne's team that was rounding up the people in Tabula Rosa

Good episode, love the stuff in the isolation room. Didn't love Allisons overreaction to people not taking her orders, they weren't doing because they thought she was crazy they were doing because Senator Wen had not allowed her to return to work and so she had no security clearance.

So, I wasn't clear at the end--did Jo make it into the program on her own, or did Zane's cheating get her in?

Everlovin

Jo made it in on her own.

I'm so looking forward to it!

That's what I thought as well.

I so want to see Wesley turn into a ball of light and leave this dimension.

Is that so wrong?

There is no such thing as a wrong show when one is a dimension hopper.

As usual...you make no sense.

It was something I learned while watching Sliders.

People like to throw around terms like prime universe and all that.

But really, when it comes right down to it, if you travel to other dimensions, there really is no such thing as things like "prime" universe, just the universe you started in.

And Wesley is a dimension hopper.

Which is why I personally consider Nemesis as happening in another dimension. Because he was there in a dress uniform at the party for Will and Deanna.

It's like being a time traveler. When you're a time traveler, time is no longer linear, and your perceptions are altered.

I don't think the test can get any more real than that.
It's always that problem with the computers. Something has to go wrong.

I finally got around to watching all the eps up to this one. I really wish they would put Eureka back the way it was. I never thought the Carter/Allison relationship would annoy me this much but it makes me wanna puke every time they're all gushy :S It's cringeworthy. I think that's the biggest mistake they done putting those two together.

It was fun though watching the others in the isolation chamber :D And you can never get enough of Sheriff Andy :D
