Maybe I'm just doing the typical "newbie's gonna post everywhere and be un-newbiefied" thing but nevertheless, I love just about every Earth-based episode for some reason and I really liked this one. The whole scandal situation really works on SG-1 because of its setting and this was no exception.
This ep is pretty straight forward, I thought. One question and one comment, really.
How did Maybourne get there?
And Marina's Russian accent is amusing.
Mayborne was working for the NID who was selling their info to the Russians. The NID was selling info to the Russians because the Ruassians were willing to help the NID where the SGC wouldn't.
So the NID supplied Mayborne to help the Russians get their gate program off the ground, he was a liason of sorts.
My favorite part of this episode was after Daniel and Markov are putting out the fire:
DANIEL : Well given the obvious solid craftsmanship that went into this thing. I dont see how this could have possibly happened.
MARKOV : If youre implying that everything Russian made is poor quality, actually the sub is Swiss.
DANIEL : So they occasionally catch fire but they keep perfect time?
DANIEL : Sorry, (murmuring) Ive been hanging around Jack ONEILL too much.
I loved that little conversation!
Amanda, "Wallow Central."
Yep, very funny. A good episode, overall, and nice to see Marina.Originally Posted by bcmilco
I hope her character comes back, sometime.

Also I like the plane out of jumping scene. Where big bad warrior Teal'c is scared of it and wimpy nerdy boy Daniel just grimaces and jumps.

I like it when they see the screen crack, they don't look too happy.
That is my favourite line of the episode, and quite possibly the funniest in SG1. It's so my friends and I style of humour, it cracks me up every time I merely think about it.Originally Posted by Crazedwraith

Yeah, I too think I'd be a bit freaky! lol
One of my favorite epsiodes, for Marina if for nothing else. I didn't even realize it was her until after I had finished the epsiode. Considering I found her character really annoying through most of TNG, it was nice to enjoy her. Aside from the fact that her name should have been Markova not Markov (Russian surnames are gender specific). I adored her interaction with Daniel, they had nice chemistry togeather and I keep hopign we'll see her again.
I also felt incredibly geeky because after about two minutes I said, "she's wearing an east german jacket..." Markov's jacket is Nationale Volksarmee issue rainpattern camoflage. I compared it against a sample in my closet. Which only made her comment about the sub being swiss more funny to me, because the Russians make some of the best minisubs in the world, and I'm pretty sure they make nice warm jackets too, without using fifteen year old german coats.
Very good point about the jackets. Lets face it, if they hadn't been able to make their own warm clothes, the Russians would have died out years ago!
That was exactly what I was thinking!Originally Posted by SeaBee
But seriously, the Russians do make some of the best mini-subs in the world. The ones seen in the opening sequences of Titanic are the Russian mini subs Mir 1 and Mir 2.
There's a Russian saying: "There's no such things as Bad Winters, only Bad Coats".Originally Posted by SeaBee
Amen to that.Originally Posted by Madeleine_W
I think she should come back again.
