    Re: Lockdown (803)

    Oh, one thing more: I really don't agree with the criticism of Dr. Brightman. I have no idea if they even intend to make her anything more than one of the second-level characters on the show (in fact, they might have every intention of downplaying her role, to avoid Janet comparisons), but I didn't have a problem with her last night. She needs to warm up and be more lively? "Lockdown" was not the ep for that. She came across as exactly what she needed to be under the circumstances: completely professional.

    Well, I just finished watching last nights new episode for the first time. I haven't read any posts made since it aired, because I didn't want my view of the episode to be colored by other peoples reaction to it. Also, my big head considers

    PIGGY'S USELESS OPINION
    of 'Lockdown'

    to be the only opinion of any value, heh heh. And I enjoyed the show, but felt it flew by a little too fast - no doubt due to me being spoiled by double-length episodes two weeks in a row. Also, the copy I watched seemed to be missing something at the very beginning. It can't have been much more than a few seconds, though.

    So: The russians are back, huh? I wonder where they've been for the last year and a half. Have the russian SG team even been mentioned since 'Metamorphosis'? In any case, Jack seems to have gotten over his distrust of Russians in general - his reluctance to put the colonel on the team was obviously not due to his nationality.

    Speaking of Jack, I found this episode to be surprisingly Jack-heavy. I knew he would be in it, but I didn't expect him to be front-and-center for so much of it with RDA's even-more-reduced schedule this year. I'm thinking TPTB made the right decision by having him put in charge of the SGC.

    Yet, even with him being present to such a high degree there wasn't much of the usual banter other than a few exchanges regarding Jack having shot Daniel. Humor-wise, this episode wasn't a big one. The funniest moment for me was when Jack asked Daniel if he knew how to 'take away Anubis' options' and Daniel responded with a blank stare.

    I also laughed at the final shot of frozen Anubis, although I suppose it does leave the door open for him to return (Can semi-ascended beings freeze to death?).

    Overall, I found the episode to be pretty good. Nothing outstanding, but certainly enjoyable. Now I'm looking forward to watching last nights Atlantis episode in a few hours!

    Semi-Ascended? He seemed quite ascended to me, passing through walls and stuff. Why is he black and not white btw? Maybe he didn't find the Ancients way to ascend.
    And no, I don't think he can die. Unless it's 0 K.

    As I recall, Robert Cooper said in an interview that Jack would be heavy in the beginning of the season (as SG-1 supports the launch of Atlantis), used sparingly in the middle of the season, and then we'll have more "Jack" in the last part of the season. Just a different way of allocating RDA's time this year.

    Ahem! I know twisting and turning anything and everything that is said or shown in the show in every possible way is "what we do" but do we really need to make an issue out of this?

    Yes, Anubis is only partially ascended. We know this from previous episodes. It is a fact. End of story.

    I agree with piggy, it's a fact. He ascended didn't make it all the way and got stuck!

    didn't he ascend all the way then not get booted out properly so was stuck partly ascended?


    not having seen this ep, i would say the anubis probably didn't ascend again and was still stuck half ascended, since it was mentioned his human form was all to do with the black cloak/suite he wore.

    One question I had. Since Anubis was only partly ascended, how did they know he even HAD his powers anymore?

    My thoughts exactly. We've never seen him using any powers, so who's to say he still has them? For all we know, the only thing that makes him part-ascended could be the fact that he is made up of energy.

    I don't think she needed to be any more lively or whatever, she just needed a personality... any personality. Happy and bubbly, a mean-ass b*tch, something. She reminded me of those half-asleep goa'ulded people from "Nightwalkers".

    More notes...

    Why, after Sam zatted Daniel, did it take him so long to radio anybody once he woke up? Was he just getting used to people shooting him and thought nothing more of it?

    I knew when Jack was arming the auto-destruct that it was Anubis. Anything else doesn't make sense, since destroying the mountain would've done nothing to a being that can pass through solid objects (nor would it have destroyed the gate, probably). But question... doesn't it take two ranking officers to turn off the auto-destruct? I believe this had been mentioned several times.
    Anyway I'm sorry, but that just happens to be how I feel about it. What do you think?

    Unless you're talking about Sauron, of course.

    BTW (and back on topic), I made some lighthearted criticism of the Dr. Brightman character - I said she needed to go dancing, but I believe everyone in the SGC needs more boogie-time. It's her first appearance and she (Brightman) is replacing a beloved character's role. They can't just remove one well-developed doctor character and plop another one down in her place. Brightman had ample authority and expertise, which was what she needed for this episode. If it's warranted, I'm sure she'll develop as a character as time goes on.

    Exactly - if it's warranted. I honestly don't think anyone would have a problem with her if they hadn't been used to Janet. Not because people are mad that she's replacing Janet the same way people disliked Jonas for replacing Daniel, but without being used to the Dr. Fraiser character I don't think anyone would have expected Dr. Brightman to be anything more than what she was in this episode: A generic doctor character, needed by the plot. Just because TPTB decided to evolve Janet beyond that doesn't mean they'll do the same thing to this character. Not this late in the game.

    As lmj said for colours, evil races dress in dull colours such as gray and black as other races like the Nox where a creamy white and the Asgard. Well, they don't wear anything, but that's not the point! lol

    I still think TPTB are smart to let us get to know Dr. Brightman slowly. She may never interact with SG-1 like Janet. Dr. Brightman may be more like the male doctor, Dr. Warner, and we may not see as much of her as we did Janet. Time will tell.

    Yes. That's what I think, too. I figured that Alisen Downs played--or was told to play--Dr. Brightman as flat and professional in order to keep her separate from Janet. Yes, it makes us miss Janet more, but I think we supposed to miss her. They killed off the character; and they've already done the "Not Quite Dead" bit a few too many times already. I we can't have Janet Fraiser, then, yes, a "generic doctor" is more to my taste. A new CMO, just brimming with personality would, would have struck me as callous, as if the writers/directors didn't value the character they created.
