    I have a dark and dirty secret: I actually like "Nightwalkers"
    It makes no sense: Usually I hate the NID stuff, it had neither my favourite nor my second favourite character in it (not even my third favourite )but I think it´s the only X-filish episode which ever really worked. Maybe because it seemed not to take itself to earnest. And Sam, Teal´c and Jonas had a surprising good chemistry in this episode. Maybe because they seemed to have really much fun with it.

    Thumbs up Re: Nightwalkers (605)

    Hi all first post.

    On my way through the show for the first time and have just watched Nightwalkers. I really like Jonas, I've nearly forgotten all about Daniel Jackson. The Jonas/Teal'c chemistry is great.

    So do I... but am not sure why either... it seemed to have the makings of a conspiracy movie at one stage and then turned out just to be the good o'l Goa'uld... I suppose I like the political stuff anyway, which probably helps.

    Watching the episode reminds me of how much I like Jonas. Perhaps I have fond memories of Parker Lewis Can't Lose or it's because we're the same age and I can better relate to his charater. But whatever the reason, I like the fact that Jonas got to do Sherlock Holmes in this episode... and the fact that he did it so matter-of-factly is a lovely touch.
    My take on Jonas is that he is a much more an intuitive character rather than an intellectual one... in that sense he is much more like Jack than Daniel, who in the early days was much more of the intellectual idealist. Hence, I'm glad that we get to see this side of Jonas using his eyes and ears and not just book learning to contribute to the investigation.

    It was a fun episode and lots of great chemistry between three of the main characters. More surprising was some incidental humour between Carter and Jonas...

    I agree. How many of us would have:
    a) Noticed that the customers and staff in the Diner were being so dopey;
    b) inferred that, judging by the numbers affected in the Diner alone, it must be a fairly widespread dopeyness; and
    c) proposed that the entire town was operating on short sleep?

    I wouldn't have - and neither did Sam and Teal'c. But then, Jonas still probably hasn't become as familiar with the outside world of the Tauri as Teal'c has. From my own foreign travels, I know that being in a new environment makes me as 'all eyes' as that, and I want to take in as much as possible. But, even if I had noticed how clumsy the fellow diners were being, I certainly wouldn't have read anything into it, never mind deduced why it was happening. That Jonas Quinn is one brainy chap.

    I liked the episode. Noticed no Jack at all. Guess this was the beginning of RDA taking time off.

    The drawing of the ship being built looked sort of Asgard-ish. But what they showed behind the door did not look to me, much like the drawing.

    I like this one as well - its one I watch frequently. I like how they are all dressed - SO slick kinda like a toned-down matrix feel. Sam in that long black coat, the boots and the shades. And Jonas and his American food - LOL.

    I miss Jonas - I found his optimistic attitude refreshing. He's Way smart and Way intuitive and just adorable all around. Glad he got to shine a bit in this one.

    I love reading all the opinions on these episodes. Nightwalkers was most definitely, NOT, one of my favorites. It reminded me of the X-Files, with AT as Agent Scully. Great leather, but the plot left a lot to be desired. I kept waiting for David Duchovny to rush in, claiming his sister was one of the townspeople.

    LOL, true, I didn't mind that it was an 'homage' ep

    but Teal'c's symbiote could have gotten into Dochovny and THEN he could run in saying his sister was one of the townspeople

    Duchovny with glowing eyes and a flangy voice...now THERE's a visual...

    To be honest, I thought this was the second weakest episode of the season. The story seemed very X-Files and somewhat......predictable. Of course that's my opinion.
    This is pretty much where I am with this one, overall. It was pretty cliched, right out of Dawn of the Dead and The Bodysnatchers.

    For all that though, there are a lot of elements in it that I like. I do enjoy seeing Sam in command of a small, covert team, being resourceful and brave. And I like the interaction between the three of them throughout. There are some cute, humourous beats in there, too. I can't say that my lukewarm response to it has anything to do with it being Jackless either. I thought, as an episode generally, it worked pretty well without him.

    When I watch it, I enjoy a lot of it. It's just not an episode that's high on my favourites list or one that I think about revisiting often.

    Albion
    Listen, we had General Ryan come on and do a little cameo for us, and he's a real live four star, one of the big guys. And I had to ask him point blank, because there's a certain irreverence that I bring to the character, and denseness, but while we were doing this scene, I just looked at him and said, "Do you have guys like me in...?" and he stopped me and said, "Yes, and worse, and you're doing a fine job, son."

    I liked it too.

    I wouldn't want this kind of ep all the time but that goes for most of what I see on SG-1. But it's part of the whole picture...a wide variety of styles and stories to be told.

    I love Ba'al and the Tok'ra and Felger, but I wouldn't want them in every episode.

    Plus I like the line "You guys aren't nearly as smart as you think you are."

    I quite enjoyed it, I think if you compare each episode to other types of shows then it doesn't look right but I like to see the team in different settings. The only b it that was a bit odd was sam getting a phonecall in the middle of the night by a stranger!
    It waas good to see sam in charge and see hw she did things differently.And teal'c and jonas were hilarious together.
    There were a couple of twists in the story as well, like I wasn't expecting the NID to be there and then the NID was being infiltrated. I'll admit it wasn't a part of the main story arc but I enjoyed it all the same.

    Jack was offworld being healed by his Tok'ra symbiote, thus covering a nice big hole in RDA's shooting schedule.

    Thumbs up Re: Nightwalkers (605)

    I love this ep. It's like a comfort food ep. The team interactions are fab and Carter's in charge and wearing leather.

    CARTER: Why are you following us?
    MAN: I don't know what you're talking about.
    CARTER: Teal'c.
    Teal'c pulls up harder on the man's shirt.


    I get an evil thrill from that beat.

    Teal'c says one of my favourite lines of the entire series: "Our attempts to gather information from the local townfolk proved equally fruitless." Townfolk?! BWAH!

    I also really liked Jonas. He and Carter -- or perhaps Nemec & Tapping -- had a great vibe.

    CARTER: You didn't say anything weird, did you?
    JONAS: Why are you looking at me?

    It kills me that Carter would call someone on her team 'weird'. Classic.

    Sorry, but this episode was never a favorite of mine. It just felt like Stargate goes X-Files. I loved the X-Files, but NOT with SG1. Just my feeling.....

    I wouldn't say it was one of the best eps of the season, but I liked the oddballness of it and I agree with DEM, it's kind of a comfort food ep. The circumstances and dialogue were great, IMO, and it's one of the few times that RDA's absense felt completely natural. I honestly never even noticed him missing from the ep. I was having too much fun.
