STARGATE MARATHON

I'm doing a marathon of the Stargate series while uploading the eps. I started out with SGA since it was shorter and I'm working my way through Season 3 of SG-1 now.

I remember doing an SGA marathon last year and finding it hillarious. This time round, I've fallen back in LOVE with SG-1. It was the perfect team *_* We had Sam as the science geek, Daniel as the academia dork, Teal'c as the guy with actual experience with the Goa'uld and Our Guy Jack - who's the Harry Potter of the SG world (as a foil to the other characters) except, much much MUCH better *_*

There was enough of a blend of history (myths and legends and fantasy) and science fiction that you could get 10 years out of it.

And for some reason when I look at SGA, I can't help thinking of it as The McKay Show a lot of the time. And McKay is more of a Draco than a Harry. He draws attention to himself like a lodestone. With Jack, I loved his interactions with Daniel, Sam and Teal'c. With McKay? You can have an entire episode with him stranded at the bottom of the ocean and I'll STILL be hooked. Also, McKay is the Go To Guy. If he were to disappear for a season, the Atlantis expedition would be wiped out >_>

In comparison, while pulling Jack out of SG-1 changed the show, once Vala came in, the dynamics between her and Daniel were stunning. She's easily my favorite female character from both shows. And Daniel also came into his own and was far less geeky in the last seasons IMO. Wasn't a bad thing at all:



And it took me a while but I've come to adore Teal'c - even if he has said "Indeed" so many times that someone actually made a three minute video of it on youtube - I recommend just watching the last 30 seconds, because it is HORRIFYING ^o^

I'm kinda disappointed with SGA at the moment because of the lack of Carson Beckett. His "return" was such a fucking cop out and after all those petitions and fan support, THAT is what we get? WTF.

So watching the first episode of the the new season five - every time I saw Dr. Keller...I kept wondering what Carson would say instead.

Though I have to say, I'm really partial to Woolsey because I LOVED Robert Picardo as The Doctor in Star Trek Voyager (my favorite character on that show along with Captain Janeway and Seven of Nine). Oh and seing this quick spoof had me giggling like mad:



I think I watch the Star Gate series for the males. With BSG, I'm all for Boomer/Athena and Helo and I have a love/hate relationship with Starbuck and Apollo and Six. With Stargate, I just want my boys.

Oh and lastly, the funniest SG-1 fanvid music video on youtube (terrible quality but it's GUARANTEED to make you laugh and facepalm)

The episode with the time loop where they hit golf balls through the Stargate is possibly my favourite hour of trashy TV.
Vala and Daniel are :hearts; The episode, gah, the one where she first appears? And she and Danny spend most of the episode fighting on the Prometheus? (or Deadelus?) HILARIOUS. She had me hooked from that moment on the show again.

I loved her on Farscape too - she and BB were always sensational together.
Vala was AWESOME in that episode - but then her personality went through a bit of an overhaul once she became a part of SG-1 - still, she kicked ass :)

I desperately want to download Farscape but the first season just ISN'T available on megaupload :(
One of my friends and I have now reached disc two of season 8. We started re-watching late last year.

So much love.

Um, this actually has nothing to do with SGA, but I've managed to get my hands on the Iljimae soundtrack and do you want it?

Link to megaupload here.

Enjoy!

Thankies! I'm waiting for KST to subs episodes 5 onwards, though I did skim all the way through to episode 7. BUT I can't watch them without subs ;_;
Re: Drive-by commenting
They still haven't done ep5? Huh. Not to slam on them or anything, subbing is hard work, if it's anything like editing manga scans.

You want my recaps? (Not to flog or anything.)

The good news is that the show's gotten progressively better. Hang in there!! ♥
You know how much I love Stargate. And you also know that if it doesn't involve Jack in some way, it's just not the same for me.

I used to get all excited in the later seasons when I was watching it on TV and I'd see his name guest staring in the credits. I'm not a het shipper IN THE LEAST but I will never give up my Sam/Jack love. NEVER.

Also, I thought I showed you the Rocks and Trees clip ages ago! Or maybe that was someone else? It's so awesome.
Lol, see, I sometimes wish this were filmed 50 years in the future 'cause we might have had some more obvious Jack/Daniel slash moments XD But yeah, Jack worked well with the whole team and those moments really worked. And yet, things wouldn't really get solved if it was just him - it's a team effort and I love SG-1 for that.

DOn't think I ever daw the Rocks and Trees ep before this week ^_^
Okay, to be honest I did not read the whole post because it's late and I'm tired, but can I get a high-five from a fellow Carson Beckett fan? They had better bring him back and do a good job of it, because he is my favorite character.

Also, props again for your stunning SG-universe video upload.
