      And it was bad in so very, very, very many ways. Let me count the ways... well, okay, I'll spare you. But I'll probably do a lament on the anti-season 9 thread at some point.

      But, you know, those Asgard transporters are really awesome!

      Spoiler:
      They transport people who are sitting down, and then deliver them standing up. They also miraculously clean all the blood off their faces and partially heal their cuts. Unfortunately, they still leave their hands tied. Too bad. Sam needs to fix that.

      But she did save the day!

      Met too. I'm just sad about the whole show, AGAIN. I felt a little hopeful after Ripple Effect and Ethon, but wow, this episode had so many problems.

      The good news though---as AGatefan said so well, Sam was good in it and she showed actual true leadership skills, just like all season. I also really liked Daniel in this one too, although he really didn't get to do much.

      Beware of a small rant:

      Spoiler:
      I won't be too pessimistic on this thread, but can I just say WOW==I don't think they could write Mitchell any worse than they are! I feel like how Daniel and Sam reacted to him throughout the episode---trying to be tolerant of him, putting up with him. IMO, the way Mitchell is being written (not BB) is ruining the show! I think this is really true! He is just not believable or credible of being leader of SG-1. He's cocky and obnoxious. It is embarrassing. I'll stop now. The good news--Sam saved the day--she was level-headed, competent, and got the job down. Daniel's and Sam's reaction to Mitchell in the last scene was great.

        Jack: "Sal is amazing. 5,555 posts and most of them about us! FCOL, I wish the writers would take the hint!"

        Sam: "It's okay, we know the truth. Sweetie, would you get me another beer?"

          Rob: I just don't get it everyone should see Cam is the leader and he's great.

          Chris: I know the guys at the other end of the table want Ben's character in charge but we know who will really shine and it ain't Shaft

          Ben: Amanda really does out shine me and Sam should be in charge full-time.

          AT (thinking): Don't worry SAMANDA Cam may be in charge on paper but we know who the real star of the show is.
          ROFLMAO!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! You really brought a smile to my face this morning with this one. Wish I could green you for it, but it won't let me! Dagnabit!

            See, that's how I see it too ... overall show sliding downhill while Sam Carter is emerging more in command and relaxed and going upwards.

            Do you think the poor writing of Cam and Sam and Daniel's growing annoyance with him are actually intentional? Or is it just starting to play itself out that way (the actors reacting to the scripts rather than listening to a director) and the writers don't have a clue about what they have wrought?!

He isn't Jack by a longgggg shot and I wish they'd stop with the "It worked before" mentality and come up with something new for the poor guy.
                I loved seeing Sam's intelligence kick into high gear

                Spoiler:
                i agree. ok, so he did 'redeem' himself in the end, trying to keep them from getting killed

                however, if he had just stuck to the outline of the missino in the first place, you know, flying under the radar, none of it would have had to happen.

                cam, in this episode, came off like an adrenaline junkie desperately, desperately in need of a fix. so desperate that he'll skirt the edges of the orders and rules to get his way

                so not a good way to portray the guy i'm supposed to see as the new and better leader of the team

                      i do have to wonder. are they deliberately trying to destroy cam? is this thier motive? to totally ruin the character? cause every time he acts like a 2 year old i sit back and think 'you know, jack woulda so kicked his ass for being such an idiot

                          I think Cam has earned his spot on the team!

                              This is what I don't understand ... and who writes the mission reports? Isn't Landry becoming a bit concerned or is he just clueless also?

                              CPR is needed - Cam Professional Resuscitation! Send the guy to some leadership training courses!

                                You can't leave Cam alone with his gun, Mandy. He'd probably misfire and shoot.....

                                Oh wait. I see where you're coming from.
