    Default Thoughts on the opening scene

    Well I did this thread for air so I may as well do it again.

    So what did you guys think of the opening scene with scott and James. Did you think it worked well, was it out of place. Was it too graphic? Was it not graphic enough . Would you change anything if you could. I'm curious to hear you guys opinion.

    I found the music a little jarring, but that's just my taste. As for the visual, I don't have any problem with it - in fact I felt the intensity of it set up what was to follow really well.

    That's a good point about the set up. And the scene doesn't bother me as much as tptb claim SGU will be a show that can be viewed by the younglings and the they brag about how eye clawing this scene will be. I think that's just dumb lol

    I think the eye clawing thing was a joke.

    I didn't think it was graphic. Suggestive, yes, but not graphic. There was no genitalia flying around, just some back and arms. Tastefully done and served a purpose in the storytelling. I didn;t find the music jarring; it fit the scene and the pair involved. Definitely not eye clawing Although I'm sure it will kick up a big old stink, LOL!

    What do you mean by a joke?

    I mean this was no where near as bad as the scene from Air part 3 imo. So i dont know what JM was talking about.

    I couldn't really say. It was so dark as usual, I had to increase my TV brightness to watch the episode.

    As someone who has ZERO problem with nudity, profanity, or violence in my TV, even I was a bit taken aback at first. Really definitely not what I expected to see in an episode of Stargate. I don't mean that in a bad or negative way at all, just that I was a little startled by it.

    I also agree with the other sentiment expressed in this thread, that the intensity of it really drummed up the intensity of what came (hurr durr) immediately after.

    Given how readily James was to accept what Scott was doing I wonder if Scott hasn't been getting a little "something, something" from James from time to time.

    Another useless love scene that doesnt further the plot. They couldve shown a view of the window and slowly panning til you just see the two laying on their back exhausted.

    FYI, if theyre gonna show Brian J Smith topless every other episode, then i request they do the same with the girls, pick one, i dont care.

    I thought it wasn't graphic enough, lolz. But when you think about how weird this is since James was hallucinating, that means she was all naked rolling around on the bed by her self.

    He said that people who were offended by the broom closet scene, will be clawing their eyes out because of what they had in store for 1.5. He was talking about "Pain".

    Well, I took a nap before SGU and woke up 5 minutes into "Pain", meaning I only saw up to the point where Scott was lying on the ground and James was crying in her bed. So I never did see the scene, but if it was anything like "Air" then I'd imagine I'd find nothing wrong with it in particular.

    I'm definitely in the camp that thought it was important to show the intensity to appreciate what came after.

    Also I'm in the camp that thanks sex happens in real life, the show is trying to portray real people, therefore it doesn't feel out of place.

    Still I found it much less graphic and "offending" than the scene in air. Does anyone feel the same?

    I didn't think either of them were graphic, they really can't do graphic sex scenes on Syfy, and I certainly don't see anything offensive about them either.
