    Heart Re: Singularity (114)

    My most watched SG Episode ever. Singularity is awesome.

    Katie Stuart is one of my favourite actresses, and I liked her a lot better than that annoying replacement. In fact Im a huge Katie fan and co-run a website for her.

    Note: Katie was replaced only because she was filming her own tv show.

    I love the whole bomb plot line and the Sam/Cass relationship. It's such a sweet episode!

    I like "Singularity", too. It sets the stage for the relationships between Cassie, Sam and Janet, and it also gives us an insight into Sam's psyche.
    I'm always a sucker for character development stories.
    "Singularity" along with "Solitudes" are my two most rewatched eps in S1.

    I'm a sucker for any episode with a kid in it, and I think Katie Stuart did a great job. That "Sam!" right before the door shuts just tears your heart out. Definitely one of the best of the season.

    Ah... well I never really like this episode all that much but its not one that I hate to watch. The naquadah/potassium reaction is pretty cool.

    I liked this ep.

    The lift scene was cool. Did anyone see that mistake with the watch?

    I like the scene when Jack and Teal'c run through the gate with the suits on and there is an explosion and the disinfectant sprays.

    I always thought the little goof with the appearing/disappearing watch was from "In the line of Duty" (S2),but maybe it happened in this episode too !

    I second all that,Slainte !
    Also,although we didn't see her "Onscreen", Nirrti was first introduced and the stage was set for her story arcs,and her nefarious schemes.

    I wonder what the name of the episode signifies?

    My guess is that it refers to the black hole (quantum singularity) that SG7 was originally on the world to study. It also has the double meaning of Cassandra being the single survivor.

    My only regret in this is that we didn't get to see much of Janet's first trip through the gate. But that's a real minor thing...

    Re: Singularity (114)

    Wow. I LOVED this ep. Great character development for Sam; it really added another dimension. She's not just Briefing Room Sam, people.

    What was good:

    a. Just about everything. Really.
    b. The opening, with the "it could be an accretion disk" line. Came out of left field but was handled beautifully: "well, one can understand why the local population would...what did you say?!" Or something to that general effect.
    c. The "Welcome to Hanka" sign. Really fun. I can just picture one of the SG teams getting bored, scrounging up some plywood and paint, and making the sign. I sense a fic!
    d. Katie Stuart. She's adorable!
    c. Janet. She. Rocks.
    d. Sam!! AT was brilliant; the scene in the lift was super-powerful. Me mom cries during that part...but then she cries during Kodak commercials for that matter.
    e. Jack. Didja notice he called her Sam? I'm not implying ship...nevermind that, I am...but it was cool. He understood what Cassie's imminent death was doing to her.
    f. The dog. I don't like dogs much (looong story), but this was cute. ONLY Jack would've bought her the dog.

    What wasn't so good:
    Alas...

    a. Some parts ran like a bad soap opera. When everyone but Sam's in the briefing room, Daniel says something ominously and everyone looks concernedly at the security camera feed in unison...I mean, get real.
    b. Didn't Teal'c refer to Nirrti as "he"? In later eps, Nirrti is female. Although I suppose that the goa'uld could've just changed hosts; if shake comes to shove, I don't think that goa'uld really care about gender all that much. After all, Jolinar was hiding in a guy when she took Sam.

    I was so happy when they brought Cassie back! Long live Cassandra!

    This is one of the episodes that really how shall I say this,moved me.Poor Cassie,luckly she could stay on Earth and that SG-1 and Fraiser are so friendly for her.O'Neill bought her a dog

    Martouf established in The Tok'ra that the symbiotes themselves were genderless which also explains the gender confusion that accompanied Jolinar in In the Line of Duty.

    This episode could have strayed into manipulative sappiness, but I think the balance of action (including the emblematic shot of the death glider strafing the Stargate that made it into the syndicated opening sequence), humor (Jack's telescope) and a new, ruthless threat kept the melodrama in check. Season 1 ruled.

    This episode was great! We love this episode at home because it showed that Carter has more to her personality then just the "I have to prove I'm one of the guys" thing. What really showed this was (spoiler: highlight to read)when Sam was crying so hard when she left Cassy in that bomb testing facility. It was one of the most heartbreaking episodes they've done yet.

    Oh, yeah. This is definitely one of their best.

    That's right, I'd forgotten Jolinar. And Selmac, for that matter--wasn't it (for lack of a better term) in a woman before moving to Jacob?
