    Default Ok..not as bad as I remember it.

    When Season 7 was first running..I was very vocal about how much I thought it sucked compared to all the other seasons...how O'Neil was written horrible and how most of the episodes were just plain boring.

    I think I was wrong. The more I think back..the more I'm starting to realise it was actually really good.
    There were a few episodes I didn't like..mainly Heroes part 1 and the clip episode (MAYBE heroes 2..can't remember if it was just mainly talking about the doctor or not..if it was..blah, too much boring talk not enough anything else)

    Over-all..I think it was a great season..with some really well done episodes. Lots of great Sam stories...and for good reason since what happens in season 8....

    Oh wise and terrible Teal'c. They were mistake and are sorry for their misgivings. They will never do it again.

    Now, let us bow and say a prayer of thanks for the gifts that Almighty Teal'c has given us.

    Hummmmm. Hummmmm. Hummmmm.
    Godspeed, Don.

    The only episodes I read spoilers for in season seven was the finale, The Lost City. However, when they were first released they were about the city flying away

    I saw the first half of s7 with hardly any spoliers, and I thought it was fair. Whereas I saw the second half after knowing most/all of the spoilers and, in general, I enjoyed those episodes more. So, for me, as long as I don't get a scene by scene break down of what's going to happen spoilers don't seem to effect my enjoyment.

    I think I enjoy it with spoilers for some reason. Perhaps I know what to expect, sort of and it gets me in gear of what to expect. I certainly enjoyed the final third of the season a lot more than the beginning

    Although i thought Lifeboat was 'not good', i thought Teryl's and Michael's acting was excellent.

    I was spoiled for the first half and found it very good with one or two exceptions; hadn't a clue for the second half and (apart from LC and the acting in Heroes2) I was mostly unimpressed. Kind of the exact opposite of BCM

    I was kind of '' why they put 'Ressurection' right after Heros P.2 and before Inauguration. It was an ok episode for me, but i truly think it should have been placed somewhere else.

    I have to agree, Resurrection didn't have have that great effect on me, I think if they put it after about the fifth episode it may have fitted in better

    I had the same sentiments about Season 6 when I first saw it (except for the bit about Jack) because I knew Daniel was not going to be in it and didn't really give it a chance. After watching it again in syndication, I thought the season was really good, not my favorite, but it had some of the best episodes of the series, IMO: "The Changeling", "Paradise Lost", "Unnatural Selection", and "Abyss".

    Now to Season 7. I was kind of the opposite. I was really looking forward to it because Daniel was coming back and thus pretty much enjoyed 2/3rds of the episodes when I saw them the first time while the other third was either so-so or not very interesting. After viewing the season again, I feel more critical of it. I feel that the writing could have been improved. The writers mishandled Daniel coming back (though I thought this the 1st time through). I don't like the way they wrote for Jack in some of the episodes and how they mismanaged his screen time in some shows, i.e. S/J in your face ship (not prevelant but enough to be distracting). Also I think they should have and probably could have kept Jonas on the team. Just my opinion though. Overall I still like the season, not my favorite, but not total crap. The writing just seemed kind of sloppy in Season 7. Stargate is still one of my favorite tv series.

    As far as spoiling myself on the show, I only remember reading about "Heroes" way in advance so I was expecting the inevitable outcome, but it still didn't ruin part 2 for me, though I didn't agree with what happened.

    If you go in excepecting something you get disapiontted then you don't get what you want. but if you just watch the show for itself ans its' stories it was not that bad(with exceptions...)

    If you go in with expectations, yes can can be rurined but sometimes you go in and get more than you expected. Just the way (sometimes)

    I managed to avoid almost all the spoilers for season 7, except 1. Unfortunately for me the one that did get past my rigid "I Will Not Read Spoilers" rule was tucked in an interview with Teryl, and it completely ruined "Heroes" for me.

    On the whole, I enjoyed season 7, although there was a little too much politics in some of the episodes.

    I read the spoilers for Heroes and it didn't have no effect on me!

    I never started reading spoilers until the 2nd half of S7. For the most part, I don't think it ruined my enjoyment of any of the episodes, except for "Heroes 2". Not because I knew who the unlucky victim was going to be, but because the whole ep makes you think it was someone else. Knowing what I knew, I felt deliberately manipulated and lied to, and it really irked me.
    Anyway I'm sorry, but that just happens to be how I feel about it. What do you think?
