    This thread hasn't been the focus on a conversation for ages, so I thought I might point out this is my favourite episode of the whole series. Everything was so good in this episode - from the opening moments to the closing credits Malice pulled me in. I looooove it so much. Makes me wish SGU was still on, or any Stargate series really.

    I would love to see some of the SG crew show up for a Gencon.. Never get to make it to these other expos or conventions.

    I met Simeon and lived to tell the tale!

    Meeting Simeon, Fan Expo Vancouver 2013.jpg

    It was a nice surprise meeting Robert Knepper, needless to say he's a really nice guy! He was asking me how the scene with being trampled by the alien animals turned out in the end. He enjoyed shooting it and hadn't got round to seeing the finished product. He was fascinated by the location they went to and how those rocks were eroded for real to create such a surreal landscape.

    One of my favorite episodes of the series. A throw back to old westerns in style. We see some new emotions in Rush. The cat and mouse chase is done well.

    I'm still not digging Alien Chloe. I think that story line is a misstep for the series but it didn't hurt my enjoyment of this episode. The removal of the bomb was particularly good.

    Don't almost all sci-fi shows eventually do a Western theme? I used to wonder why that was.

    I thought this was average, I did enjoy Rush as a cowboy. Not Eli...

    Wasn't this ep inspired by some old western?

    Well, they just DID get access to it.. Rush is the only one who up till then had any experience operating the bridge controls.

    I tell you its karma. Yes it was an accident and no conspired to kill Ginn/Perry except maybe Simeon. But given how Rush was responsible for so many people on Destiny it almost seems like karma that his actions of hiding the bridge has the consquences of killing the person that Rush loves the most. This also has the advantage of Rush going on a one man vendetta. It was interesting to see him go nuts. He is usally a cold calculating person who rarely gives into emotions like that. You see Rush planning things it was different to see Rush go mad in chasing Simeon It was crazy wathcing Rush and Simeon have a battle of wits. The guy was not an idiot. That is what made SGU great. The villians were so more multi-dimensional compared to the previous shows. We see why Simeon does what he did instead of the generic opposing the protanganists. I could criticize Rush of letting a potential source of information die like that but I have wonder if Simeon would reval such information. The B plot of Eli wanting to follow Rush was just stupid. It seemed foolish for Eli to think he could do anthing. I understand grieving of Ginn but to do anything against to avenge was foolish. Finally I liked how even after finding the bridge the crew still doesn't know everything. We still can't around the countdown clock or course plotting without an alien infected Chloe. That type of mystery of Destiny and the unknown was great compared to how we knew everything about the mundane Atlantis

    Okay ep.

    And now I remember why Simeon didn't have an escort.

    Really gotta feel for Eli. And Rush a little. Eli finally gets a girlfriend on the ship (first girlfriend?) and she's already taken from him. And Rush's scream of anger as he walks down the hall sent chills down my spine.

    Some more soldiers of ours dead. They must all be wearing red shirts underneath.

    Rush's hero moment as he removes the bomb.

    Simeon really had our guys on the ropes. Much more well trained than our guys it seems.

    Rush getting the animals to stampede and kill Simeon was cool and cunning.

    Makes you wonder how much control the "Blues have over her".

    The events of this episode would never have happened if Simeon's guard didn't just follow him around and not react in any way at all when he did something! Simeon's escape was inevitable given this totally unbelievable action on the part of those supposedly guarding a skilled soldier, whose mission was to kill them and take over the ship in the first place.

    Then expending the energy to go after him in the faint hope that he'd actually tell them about what he knew about the planned attack on Earth was just a waste to me.

    Watching vengeful Rush was entertaining though, loved the moment of military planning with the use of a herd of animals to kill his quarry, and finding out that one Kino remote could track another. The explosive trap that caught James and the others was spectacularly done. I asked Julia Benson about what it was like to film that and she said it was pretty scary and close, got hit by a few stones! I did like the great use of location to add to the whole feel of the episode. Those eroded rock formations certainly added an alien planet feel to it.

    It's just funny in a creepy way how Chloe just blanks out and immediately starts doing something to the ship's computer when she's allowed near anything that is a control panel.

    Midweek, another ep of SGU...

    1. Forgot about the hostage taking.

    2. And exactly much much of a git Eli was at times.

    3. I guess it's not implausible that "almighty God" is responsible for this pattern.

    4. Credit to Simeon for being a sly git.

    5. Again, stupid from Rush.

    Good ep.

    The animals I agree with; but I disagree that Simeone was going to reveal anything. To me it felt like a last ditch attempt at life; "I have information, you have to keep me alive, the guilt that you killed a guy who knew about the Earth attack will be too great for you to handle is just too much for you to bear if you do it. You care about Earth right?"

    He was basically loyal to the end, basically utilizing this environment for a cat and mouse game where he hoped he would kill Rush and powerless when he was finally cornered, using a futile last ditch attempt to preserve his life.

    Beside, he killed Rush and Eli's loves with one swoop; do you think he would care much about what happened to both of them much less a turning of the cheek of his own life?

    Wow, another good episode.

    A little more (a tiny bit) about Destiny's mission.

    Rush was kind of a badass, having those animals trample Simeon to nearly death. And in that state, Simeon was ready to reveal what he knew, but nope, Rush shot him.

    Tomorrow, remember those people we left on that plant, well they're back.
