    Blah... didn't really like this episode. It didn't get interesting until the whole NID thing came up. I liked that Teal'c moved off base and everything, it just took way too long to get to the whole "murder" thing. This would have been a good episode to do a CSI or Law and Order crossover-imagine how that would have gone! The whole pizza place thing was slightly improbable.

    Other things wrong with this episode:

    Number of things blown up: NONE! Well, unless you count the door thingy
    Things shot: A coffee cup! And Daniel and Christa shot once with zat
    Sam/Pete: Yeah, just don't care it's boring and slows everything down. Although there was an interesting discussion with Teal'c about Jaffa relationships (A weapon is sometimes needed...)
    Times Gate activated: 0
    Number of planets on: 1-Earth, boring!
    Guest stars: Krista- Eh, OK... highly predictable though "It's over now, for good" Even without seeing the preview, it's kinda obvious what happened. Although Teal'c the fern killer might not have known. Kid with skateboard- Kinda annoying. NID dudes- basic bad guys seen 'em before in every movie ever made


    Another bad thing is I didn't get to see any shippers faces for the whole Sam/Pete thing and laugh at them... dangnabit.

    OK, so some of that stuff is a reach, but I just wanted to get the point across that I did not like this episode and it's not because I'm a shipper.
    Why yes, I am aware that I am too sexy for my cat
    RIP Stargate SG-1: The iris may be closed, but the gate will always be spinning, lighting the chevrons in my heart

    And to the Sci Fi Channel...

    I don't disagree with you but it was TPTB that made their relationship canon and since they did I would like to see them get together before the last episode. And since TPTB have upted the anty as it were, with Pete, I would like to see something significant happen between them other than just a fishing invitation. In the past I would have been happy with just that but NOT anymore.

    You are incorrect, the Asgard transporters do have a light that travels some distance, also once again the sound effects were Asgard transporters, not rings.

    That makes sense, thanks. He wanted to know the context, so he was hoping to discover what it was.

    The whole bit where Sam talked about how glad she was that Pete didn't run away when he found out the truth about her career felt desperate. It has to take a pretty low self-image to think you have so little to offer a relationship that your career could scare somebody away that easily when plenty of other people at your workplace in your situation manage personal lives and families successfully. I hate seeing Sam look that desperate to make it work and hang onto something because they guy didn't die or run off. That's just sad and the wrong reason to stay in a relationship.

    I feel sorry for her. I never really felt sorry for Sam before except in a wince on her behalf when she's injured sort of way. It's sad to see her like that. I want more for her than settling for the guy who didn't flee in terror.
    Or settling for second best!

    That bothered me a lot more than the romance. It's making Carter look incompetent. She could got to the US Disciplinary Barracks at Leavenworth for that. I'm deadly serious. No matter how many times she's saved the world.
    This is a good point. She never should have let him keep talking. There were lots of people around and she could get in huge trouble for it. You'd think they could have put the scene somewhere much more private if they wanted to discuss those sorts of things. It wouldn't have been hard to handle the subject without bringing her adherence to security regulations into question.

    First of all -- okay, I'm admittedly a shipper, but I've tried being open to this whole Pete thing. That being said, this episode was reeeeeeally cliche. Especially the end. Come on! (Let me paraphrase: "I have no idea if I'm ready for marriage, if my career will allow it, and I also have deep feelings for someone else. But, since you did such a nice job tracking down the bad guys' rental car, yes, I'll marry you.")

    And how lame, making poor Teal'c move back into his "cell" at the SGC! I totally loved his apartment!!

    Yes! Can I have that show? Pretty please? With sugar and cherries on top? I'll even throw in some chocolate.

    Teal'c storyline could have been a good one. I enjoy watching eps that feature CJ's acting abilities. For the most part, the poor man has stood around looking mean for eight years when he is a wonderful actor when given the chance at a good storyline. I would have loved it if there had been more meat to Teal'c's storyline.

    The wardrobe department should be fired. Daniel looked ridiculous in the white t-shirt that made a perfectly hunky MS look fat!! How does that happen? Sam's wardrobe, well, I know AT likes pink, but that jacket looked like something she picked up in "1969" or was left over from 1969! She is a light colonel so I know she makes good money, let her dress in civies that show it!

    The scene's were cut too choppy. I was surprised that Peter deLuise directed this one. I usually love his eps but this one didn't do it for me (and it wasn't just the topic).

    Okay, now to the Pete and Sam storyline. She didn't seem happy about the ring, although she did seem happy that he was moving closer. I realize that in the time line of the show, it's probably been at least eight months or more that they have been seeing each other, but other than a couple of off hand mentions of him, there hasn't been anything to indicate that the relationship was to the point of a marriage proposal. Although I was spoiled on this ep, it still didn't seem right that it was moving this fast.

    As far as the stalker line, I don't know whether to be insulted or flattered. I believe that was started in the GW forum so TPTB do pay some attention, but it almost seemed like a slam at the shippers.

    Sam's acceptance was totally off. She says she needs more time in one scene and two scenes later she says yes. The doubts she showed with Jack and the doubts she showed in the car just magically vanished with the raid on the warehouse. Why? It didn't make sense. There needed to be something that would indicate why she made her decision.

    And as far as the kissing in the warehouse, well, talk about totally unprofessional behavior. I just don't see the whole setting as working. I am not sure who wrote this ep, but it was not up to SG1 standards that I have seen in the past. Especially not with the quality eps that we've seen so far in season eight.

    Yes, as a shipper, I was disappointed in this ep for the obvious reasons, but as a SG1 fan, which I have been longer than I have been a shipper, this one was an ep to forget.
    I had problems with this ep, but I also liked alot of it.

    Liked:
    1. Teal'c s apt. Cool decorating. He can do my house.
    2. BG O'Neill...he is so hot, in control, & understands his power.
    3. O'Neill= Mature Alpha Male all the way.
    4. Nod to the Pete as Stalker issue.
    5. S/J lab scene.

    Hated:
    1. Pete is a stalker and an emotionally abusive sob. A leopard doesn't change its spots.
    2. Pete is cheap. Did you see that ring? Sheesh.
    3. Pete is incompetent. The stakeout site could not possibly have seen BOTH apartments since Teal'c and Krista lived ACROSS the hall from each other and therefore on opposite sides of the building. The stakeout was only on one side. Had to have been Krista's side.
    4. Sam selling out and settling for less.
    5. Two women Krista and Sam with abusive boyfriends and not being able to say NO.
    6. Teal'c packing up in his car having boxes hanging out the back then talks to the kid and turns around but the boxes are all perfectly stuffed so the hatch would close...poor continuity.

    7. There is no way Sam could have been discussing business with Pete in the open. He does not need to know any more than he saw at the curb in Chimera. Even if he has clearance, the discussion about TS-SCI is accurate as are the penalties. The disclosure to Pete point is weak and there is nothing TPTB can say to make it any less unrealistic. Frankly, it is disrespectful to all the people who scrupulously observe their oath to keep things secret.
    Causality should not be taken lightly.

    BINGO! Wait to accept the proposal until you get home. Then you can celebrate in any old way you want without it being questionable behavior. Women in the military have to work so hard to be taken seriously. Why would she even chance her colleagues seeing her snogging with her boyfriend while they're still at the warehouse? That's just not the professional image she should want to be projecting to her colleagues. It's not like he asked there and she was so overjoyed she couldn't help but answer right away. I just don't get it. Bizarre choice.
