    How sophisticated can something so small get? Then again it's scifi.

    On the whole I liked the episode, some good funnies, and some excellent tech.

    BTW, if anybody knows the recipe for the cake, can they lat me have it?

    Unhappy Re: Brief Candle (108)

    To be quite frank, I really didn't like this ep all that much.

    What was good:

    a. Team friendship.

    b. "Don't look at me, I don't know what to do!" midwife moment.

    c. Premis. Great plot idea, it really illustrated how totally unrespectful of life the goa'uld are.

    d. Overally funny moments. As long as I'm laughing, I've no bones to pick.

    What was bad:

    a. I just didn't like Kynthia. Not because she drugged Jack (hello, it was a total misunderstanding/accident); I just didn't like her. Something seriously rubbed the wrong way. I don't think she was a slut. I just didn't like her.

    b. The other Argosians. The acting among the extras was kind of...bad. I thought.

    c. Where do they get their food? If no one farms, but they feast everyday, who grows the stuff? And who prepares it?

    d. Octagenarian Jack. Yeah, he bugged me too. Probably because I wish RDA was younger, not older--you're going to the wrong end of the spectrum! Quick! Reverse it!

    On the whole, I think it was a good ep. I just...didn't like it. Oops.

    I liked this episode, it was a pretty fun one. I've actually met the author, who's recently written a Star Wars Novel, Cestus Deception. His website is www.lifewrite.com

    I thought this episode was pretty boring actually. Of course, the idea of Goa'uld manipulating humans to make them evolve faster was fascinating and tied up really well with what Nirrti did to the children of Hanka too. It gives Goa'ulds a whole other dimension.

    Kynthia annoyed me she was soo... goody-goody and yucky I did love Jack's face when he woke up, pretty much naked to see his friends staring at him. lol, his embarassement was priceless

    Yes, I agree on all points! And in regards to the last sentence...cherish it! It's not often that we get to see Jack completely chagrined!

    I agree this one wasn't the best, but on the adequate side. It was still the 1st season and they (the writers & the actors) were still hitting their stride & 'gelling' as a team.

    Zats - you know Kynthia reminded me of Sha're in facial features & build. Do you think maybe that's why she rubbed you the wrong way? It was too soon after Sha're's disappearance to have her almost 'twin' appear on the show....

    I liked that it gave Jack a chance to learn another way to deal with his pain and grief over Charlie & Sarah. It helped him move away from the suicidal man he was in the movie. (Jack: "Sweet Kynthia, I've learned so much from you. I'll treasure every day of my life because of you.")

    And loved the scene where Teal'c says "Perhaps it was a good Goa'uld" and Jack chokes out a laugh, spitting cake crumbs all over the place.

    And of course, for anyone who's a Jack/RDA devotee... that short scene after Kynthia seduces him isn't too shabby....

    The Sha're/Kynthia thing weirdly makes sense--although it's not so weird now that I think about it. Cool.

    The 'sweet Kynthia, treasure every day, yadda yadda' thing made me wince--but I suppose it is sort of sweet. Maybe it'll come with time. I just have a hard time picturing Jack saying that without copious application of alcohol.

    And no, the seduction scene wasn't bad!

    Yeah, I agree the writers needed to work on Jack's words a bit to make it sound more Jack-ish... but I guess I was just happy he'd admitted that he was moving on and learning to come to terms with his grief.

Additionally, if I switch language tracks, I can hear the dialogue. This is the only scene (on any DVD) that I've noticed something like this. Has this happened to anyone else? It's not a problem or anything, just VERY strange.
    I have a surround sound system hooked up to my DVD player and I get the same thing for that scene, music but no dialogue. The strange thing is that when that scene is shown again in "Politics" it has both music and dialogue (and I've made no changes to my DVD player). I never noticed it until I watched the episode on Scifi one night.

    Kynthia--sweet, but rather empty-headed. Guess the Gou'ald didn't worry about smarts for these people. The cake is only for O'Neill scene was priceless, though for Sam's & Daniel's reactions.
