    Tanith? As Stryker's right hand man? I've been wondering about thta for ages but couldn't see his name in the credits.

    I was thrown by the accent, but I suppose it makes sense that the Brit-doing-an-accent villain should have a Brit-doing-an-accent henchling.

    Of course, Cox is Welsh so maybe Stryker's team are linked to the SGC...

    in general, imo, flashback eps suck. they're just a lame excuse for not writing a real story.

    that said, this one was really good, for a flashback ep. it had a good plot and set up the story for "the lost city." i didn't like the fact that the president had a name & face, though; it thought it was better how they had done it all along with him just being "the president." but it was good how the clips were there for a reason other than the plot was too thin to stand without them.

    A good quality flashback episode because it was a good way to welcome the President and build up the lost city

    Grr... Woosley, i like his character, and the actor, i just didn't like how he was on Kinsey's side at the beginning (i'm assuming hes not at the end). All the reasons saying how "bad decisions", "wrong thing to go", i'm like, if it were some other people, sure they may have it done it the "correct" way, but might have died anyway because they went by the book, or something, but thats just my guess.

    unfortunately clip shows are often a neccessary evil. some shows tend to abuse them, but stargate never really has. i've always found that stargates clip shows have a purpose and hence are generally quite enjoyable. they fill in an awful lot of exposition, while setting up for the mammoth episode that follows.
    just as politics set up very nicely for the season one finale (and for the season to follow in a way), inauguration sets up brilliantly for the lost city, so much that i almost view inauguration, and lost city parts 1 & 2 as a three part episode.

    Maybe it was just my imagination, or the result of hanging around different forums/groups for too long, but, did anyone else get the sense that this ep was trying to send a message to the (so-named) anti-shippers in the online fandom?

    I've read things written by disgruntled fans, things like, "what Sam and Jack are doing is against regulations." "They should be split up." "They are a danger to others in their unit, to the SGC, the planet, (heck, the whole galaxy)" etc. It has even been suggested that the show should be scraped because of its continued focus on ship.

    Then you have Inauguration, and VP Kinsey. Nobody will deny that he plays a classic bad guy on the show. And where does Kinsey stand? He both wants the SGC scraped, and he accused Sam and Jack of having inappropriate feelings for each other.

    Now, the new Prez doesn't see anything untoward about Sam and Jack having feelings for each other, and even by-the-numbers Woosley seems to have had his 'Ah hah' moment right after Kinsey brought up the whole feelings accusation.

    I'm not saying I agree, or disagree with the whole Sam&Jack "issue" but I do wonder if the pro-ship PTB were using this ep to send a message....

    A Cherokee elder sitting with his grandchildren told them,
    "In every life there is a terrible fight a fight between two wolves.
    One is evil: he is fear, anger, envy, greed, arrogance, self-pity,
    resentment, and deceit. The other is good: joy, serenity, humility,
    confidence, generosity, truth, gentleness, and compassion."
    A child asked, "Grandfather, which wolf will win?"
    The elder looked the child in the eye. "The one you feed."

    They could have feelings for each other just as long as it doesn't interfere with the missions they go on.

    Inauguration is true to whats in part behind the success of SG-1. The producers never leave behind the growth for new viewers to jump in at anytime. I view the season 7 finale as a three-part episode.

    Hayes is a good man. I think he made some good decisions in Lost City and took the Stargate project in mind, very well indeed compared to what I though it would be like. At first, I though Hayes wouldn't be very serious at all but he is very serious and also seems to like a little joke at times, if events will allow it.

    I doubt he'd be a real US President, for a start he's an actor. Second, it's a tough job, well I'm guessing it is, not that I know from experience!
