Two Voyager scripts for the price of one.
When I watched this episode, there were times when I felt similar plot threads from other shows were being used.
In fact, there were two from Star Trek: Voyager that came to mind. The first was \"Waking Moments\" from season 4, about the crew falling asleep. The second was \"Macrocosm\" from season 3, where they encounter a virus that uses hosts to grow into a larger lifeform.
Not to mention that the episode was... well... a little dull. The Vala b-story was amusing, but hardly compelling.
This is evidence to me that SG-1 is past it\'s best, and I for one am glad that this is it\'s final season. It should have ended when season 8 was completed.moreless
Well i think that the disease was affecting me too ... 'cause i almost reached the NREM in this episode...XD
this was one of the most boring episodes since RDA left the show....
if the 9 season haves average episodes, the 10th season its going for the same way....i hope that the episodes related to SGA wont be the most interesting this season in sg1...
but we have a lot of episodes incoming! im sure that the things will improve!!!
Vara is being sent to a psychologist to see if she is ready to team back with SG-I while the team experiences a virus.
Well everyone seemed to review this one, this episode was boring and wasn't very good. SG-I is at it's best when they can bundle in action with an involving storyline.
This had relatively little action and relied more on comedy. Plus another unoriginal storylines involving a virus just made it look that much more mediocre.
If it wasn't for the fact that I know this is part of an arc to an Ori angle, I would have mistake this for another episode. Performances were decent just the storyline itself
sucked even though Claudia Black is wonderful as Vara.
this episode was realy good. It had it';s questions. Vala wnats to be apart of the team so bad but now she had to go through many examinations and psych tests. she is detemined that she can study for these exams, no one can make her understand what it is.
This was to say the least a puzzling show. Especially when Sam is puzzled. But i8t had it's moments. Every one starts getting tired and irratable from lack of sleep and the knowledge that there will be no sleep until they figure this thing out.
Vala on the other hand had her own adventure going on back at the sgc.
She really wants to do this and they are really putting her through it. When Woolsy confronts her and offers to have her passed if she would just agree to provide information to the nid about what they find and what goes on at the sgc.
After they realize that the stimulants that are taking to stay awake are getting to the harmfukl level they decide that they can no longer take anymore of them and they have to stay awake the old fashioned way. Sam and Daniel are left at the base and are slowly but surely running out of juice. Just in time for the hazmat team to come in just in time to save them. There was a lot going on in this episode, but it was realy good and had a great ending. I liked it much.moreless
Don't fall asleep...
Oh.. I adored the idea. We have had many problems, many planets were dangers are but something like this - sleep will kill you and team trying to stay awake, some failing and then a hopeless feeling, last hope by trying to find something to cure it. Very good emotion and atmosphere creating and the solution and the whole color of the episode, remarkable.
I also must say - the Vala little storyline was enjoyable too - to cram for psychiatric validation. Who would have come to that idea? But she did. I do not know but for me it seems that she is adding little humor to the serie what has been lost in while. It used to be here when O'Neill was around.. but...moreless
SG-1 goes off world in search of Merlin's weapon but they get exposed to a parasite that will kill them if they sleep. In the end, of course, they make an anitdote and they're ok. Meanwhile, Vala is undergoing a psyce test. I thought the parasite story line was unoriginal but it was pretty interesting nonetheless. It was funny watching everyone that was tired. I was a little annoyed that they used the same actor to play the doctor that played the archaologist in "Window of Oppertunity." Oh well, it's no big deal. He's a good actor anyways. I thought Vala's story line was very funny. I actually liked her in this episode, and that's saying a lot because I can't stand Vala. Anyways, she was funny. Overall, ok story with a lot of funny moments.moreless
The Oricy’s mother must take a psych test.
The team is about to go to a search for Merlyn’s weapon while Vala’s fate hangs in the balance. As the one who knows her the most, Daniel pleads her case to General Landry pointing out her value as the Oricy’s mother as well as her recent involvement on the latest event, Landry is willing to give her a chance as long as she takes a psych test and Daniel’d keep an eye on her, a decision Daniel almost come to regret as she takes over his computer to prepare for any possible question.
As Vala plays with Daniel’s computer the SG-1 team arrives to a planet where everyone died on their sleep which wouldn’t have gone beyond the usual mystery have not been by a parasite that apparently is now trying to kill the SG-1 team during their sleep, one by one the member of the scientific team fall sleep and die while Mitchell and Teal’c go to the caves to capture a life form that is immune to the parasite. Things are no better for Vala who not only fails the polygraph and cards test but is also approached to become a spy on the SG-1 program due to her colorful past. She finally has it and dumps her frustration on the psychologist that monitors her confessing a past where she has cheat and lie and steal to get what she wants, had circumstances repeat itself she would probably do it again despite this phase in which she finds herself compelled not to because of someone who in a small way believes in her but don’t worry, she’s sure it’ll pass too. Apparently, this is all what they needed to know for she passed the test – that includes the spy proposition as one of the items – and Vala becomes a proud member on probation of a team that found the cure to the parasite thanks to Teal’c and the SGC.moreless
what else can I say other than that I am loving this season. This was a very good idea for an episode. I know it didn't have alot of action in it but not every episode to a show can have action in it. The team go searching for merlin's anti ori weapon but come to a village where you ant to fall asleep. Vala has to undergo a psych evaluation. I think she ended up becoming a part of sg1. When they all got back the weapon was not there but daniel found a reference to something else... Atlantis! which means the weapon could be there. later...moreless
Don't fall asleep....
this i think, was a very original storyline and one that stargate sg1 had not had anything to do with before. i like how they were searching for Merlins weapon and they whent to a planet that Aurthur was said to have went to. the whole planet was hit by a disease that make peoplr fall asleep, and if they fall asleep they won't wake up.it was avery good episode of stargate sg1 and season ten is turning out to be very well writen and i think that season ten will be my favourite.i hope 'pegasus project' is even better.later.moreless
