    Nope, still not a fan of the theme of the episode. Watching someone with auditory and visual hallucinations, and paranoia to boot, is literally so close to home that it makes me uncomfortable watching the episode. It gives me that unsettling feeling that I'd rather like to ignore -- when real life is reflected I'll take a pass. K, thx!

    Anyhow, it's an interesting episode where we learn that Kelona cares more about killing people than talking diplomacy and saving their own, and others. It's a bit annoying that we never get to see the representatives of the other two nations, which makes it a copy of The Other Side -- less with the genocide though using a naquadria bomb probably ticks all the same boxes.

    Command learned their lesson though so that's a positive note. And poor Jonas, naquadria continues to take everything he holds dear away from him one way or another.

    How would you rate SG-1's "Shadow Play?"

    Excellent
    Good
    Fair -- not a fan of the episode. Was actually dreading to watch it, hence why it took me so long to do so.

    You didn't have to watch the show, especially if caused dread.

    There are plenty more episodes that I don't like watching for different reasons but as with Demons in season 3 I will watch them at least once more and then, possibly, never again.

    The Shrine in SGA is another one that hits really close to home (same person as with the hallucinations).

    Ive got to disagree with FH on this one. To me this has nothing to do with a person losing their mind like the elderly do with dementia. This is a guy who is suffering from radiation poisoning. Ive never heard a person develop schziophrenia from radiation but that is another story. I actually like this one too see how Jonas interacts with Kelowna now that is no longer part of that world. Specifically how stupid they are but I imagine we were similar during our Cold War. I'll give it a good

    That one was a hard one for me too. My grandfather died from Altizhemiers. It was really well done, however I've only watched this one once.

    Tried solving a jigsaw on my tablet/PC and I didn't do too bad on it. A touch screen actually works well: 7:10.

    Sidenote: my laptop is currently acting up with technical issues. I'm running some scans (diagnostic and virus/malware/adware).

    My laptop's biggest technical issue is that it's almost 8 years old. Ancient in laptop terms.

    Offtopic but I am really satisfied with my ASUS laptop I bought this year, supposedly the nano-tech has advance quite a lot. The high-performance are quite expensive (around 1500-2,000$), but others in the 500-1200 range are quite affordable. Depends what you need it for.

    Supposedly the batteries have considerably evolved, I can game on my laptop unplugged for about 2 hours, 1 hour for demanding games with high quality graphics. Back then? The Laptop wouldn't last 20 mins.

    Found the problem. Laptop crashed during the last round of windows updates so I couldn't get my profile to work (notwithstanding I'm the administrator user on my puter). I did a total scan and then did a profile reset. Worked wonders.

    I'm back in business.
