Observations on recent SG-1, SG:A and BSG (no major spoilers) 
22nd-Jan-2006 08:20 pm
I'd started BSG 2x13 (Epiphanies) downloading before heading off to the pub and, of course, had to watch it as soon as I got home. Wonderful stuff yet again. Some iffy-sounding science but nothing I couldn't live with.

SG:A's still proving watchable but not especially brilliant. Competent but unspectacular.

Now, I was a week behind on my SG-1 but decided to put it on anyway. What a surprise. It was actually rather good. Is it a coincidence that it was a standalone episode, involving neither the Ori nor the Jaffa? ;-)

If it`s that one, I found it quite entertaining, dispite a feeling of `been there, done that`. And a favourite character being back for it.

What did you think of Galactica ? I wondered how they would continue with one character...

No, 9x12, the one with Cam accused of murdering a scientist.

Overall, I liked BSG 2x13 a lot but thought that character's deliverance was a tad too quick and complete!

I agree, but it was not ...unexpected.
Makes a mess of part of the plot tho.

Does it? At this point, it's not clear whether she's cured, in remission or been given a temporary respite ie needs ongoing injections

*covers eyes*
ta for the dvd - we watched them last night (watched 10 after getting back from the pub)
I actually didn't want out go to the Ship cos I wanted to watched those 2 episodes. We eventually watched them after getting back from the CoC game last night.

BSG 2x13 ??? that's not due until... ummm...
crap, 2 days ago. I thought I'd forgotten something!

SG:A is thoroughly ignorable, gave up on it a while ago, I'll watch it if I bump into it.

SG-1 2x13 was pretty good, but what's the betting that they quickly forget that they know how to do that.

Did you mean SG-1 9x13? If so, just watched it and, yes, it was pretty good. Interestingly, yet again, no real involvement of the Ori or Jaffa, just mentions in passing!

2x... 9x... only seven years out!
I'm fairly happy for the Ori & Jaffa to be in the background, they've contributed to some of the weakest episodes this season.

They are proving a serious drag on the current season!

Just remember, every Saturday morning, kick off your BSG download! And SG-1 and SG:A if you can be arsed ;-)
