  • Quite a good episode ...

    8.8
    Quite a good episode ... indeed.



    Although it is only a filling episode ... yeah, I like the Ori story line, I actually liked it very much. I really liked the Vala character here, she is very funny.

    For instance during the conversation with Cameron's parents and during her jealousy when Cameron sticks with his old love , that he re-met at the reunion. It was throughout thrilling and interesting. Although it is sad to say, but actually this episode was in my opinion way better and more exciting than the Stargate Atlantis Season 3 Finale.



    I will surely be missing you guys!moreless
  • SG1 have a bounty on their heads

    9.0
    I liked this episode even if it did feel like another Farscape with loads of Cameron and Vala and not enough of the rest of the team. There were some brilliant comic moments, the flirting women at the convention and Vala telling Cameron's parents about having sex in every room! Very funny. I loved when Daniel turned the lady bounty hunter down - he and Vala are meant for eachother!! Needed more of the characters but was a fun episode none-the-less.moreless
  • Ben Browder and Claudia Black = quality viewing

    9.5
    A thoroughly enjoyable episode giving SG1 another opportunity to kick some ass.

    I was very much looking forward to seeing Ben Browder and Claudia Black doing another story together, and I was very impressed. I found myself actually believing without hesitation that I was watching Vala Mal Doran and Cameron Mitchell bounce comments off of each other so naturally, instead of just seeing Aeryn and Crichton which I half expected to happen. These two are phenomenal actors, and they work so well together, I only hope the writers recognise this as well, and give them more stories together, for all us Farscape fans suffering withdrawal.

    Excellent episode, shame there wasn't more Daniel in it though.moreless
  • many things about this episode annoyed me, first would have to be that its a filler... *spoilers*

    6.8
    While i like filler episodes in general as they are usually plotless fun with no real consequences on the rest of the season. just a happy fun episode.

    This was half and half.



    Baisicly its the teams day off and everyone has something to do except Vala, so a a reluctant Mitchel takes her with him to his high school reunion.

    Everyone exchanges stories and vala kept trying to tell her stories.. which of course were classified.



    Apparently natan being furious with sg1 for destroying his cargo earlier in the episode puts a bounty on their heads so half a dozen bounty hunters make their way to earth, undetected.



    Whilst daniel is in a library slash museum this very attractive woman proposes they go somewhere.. alone. (The look plastered on daniels face is soo cute) but when he refuses she tries to shoot him. in the end she chases him across the street and obviously doesent know her road rules very well because she didn't look at all let alone look both ways and got squished by a bus.

    this rather annoyed me as it was just a little too easy and comical.



    There are howevery some very funny scenes between Cam and Vala at the reunion. Cam meets up with his high school crush and cam turns into a clumsy idiot while his friend hits on Vala.



    Bounty hunters arrive and take the whole place hostage and while its funny to see everyone running and screaming while vala was looking around like 'what the hell are you doing'.



    in the end hologram technology saves the day and eveyone has to sign a non-disclosure release.moreless
  • A little fun never hurt anyone.

    9.8
    I think this was a great episode. Some may call it filler (although there was some advancment, such as the apparent death of Netan), but I dont think any episode is a filler. All episodes are more of the lives of our heroes, whether fighting Ori or not. I loved seeing them all off base and doing various things. I would call this somewhat of a Vala episode. She was excellent, especially in the scenes with guest characters who did not know her. She should have known better than to telling everyone about her real-life, but it was worth it to see their reactions. Daniel's story was also great (and he looks hot out of uniform). He rejected the girls invitation so gracfully that he made me proud. And he still wasnt caught off guard when she tried to blow his head of the next second. Good reflexes. Sam and Dr. Lee were great too, with all the nerds. It was funny how Dr. Lee said he had to pretend that the thing he was presenting would short out all the time because the technology was clearly too advanced. And the climax at the reunion was the best of course, what a display! Those guests must have been so freaked out. And all one girl could managed to say was, "I knew there was something wrong with that girl (Vala)". The only part of the episode that I didnt care for was Cam's story. I am not really interested in his high school crushes, and the girl wasnt even interesting. But definitely an interesting and special episode overall, with lots of jokes, the heroes "trying" to lay back, and it not happening, of course.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • The Goa'uld hand weapon, that the female assassin uses against Daniel, is the same weapon that Martouf used to threaten the president, in the season four episode "Divide and Conquer."

    • When Mitchell is being attacked on the transport Teal'c says that he will ring over to help him, Mitchell responds, but Teal'c never touched his radio.

    • Dr. Lee's experimental plasma weapon appeared to be powered by a small naqhadah generator. Since naquadah is not native to the Earth and is only procurable through the stargate, naquadah generator technology is still highly classified and the weapon should have been powered by something else if it is being shown to the public.

    • When Teal'c is attacked the first time (at the DHD) and he starts to shoot back; his staff is closed when it fires (as seen from the front). However it is open when viewed from behind, and when he stops shooting.

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Darell: (about Amy) Oh, Cam always had a thing for her.
      Vala: Really?
      Darell: Guy could've had any girl he wanted in the whole school, but every time she'd walk by, he'd start stammering like an idiot.

    • Vala: (about the reunion) Traditionally these events entail the bringing together of large groups of people all with a common bond in past but nothing really in common in the present. Everybody evaluates each other's lot in life generally by virtue of a combination of material wealth and the attractiveness of one's date, spouse, life partner.

    • Mitchell: (laughing) So, Mr. Armstrong, he walks into the classroom and sees his car-- the whole car--sitting in the middle of the room. It's got a fresh coat of wax, it's looking all brand new.
      Darrel: We all thought he was gonna drop dead from heart failure right there on the floor.
      Vala: And then what happened?
      Darrel: Well, that's it. I mean, we had to take the car back out and put it together again, but…
      Vala: If I understand you correctly, you had to completely disassemble and then reassemble this automobile not once but twice?

    • Darrel: You know what? I think Mitchell is crazy for ditching you. I mean, God, look at you! You're a beautiful women, you have a keen mind, you shoot like a Special Forces sniper…
      Vala: True, all true.
      Darrel: But, you can be a little scary, though.

    • Vala: (calling out) Cameron, we have to get moving.
      Mitchell: Go wait in the car!
      Vala: (to Mitchell's parents) I exaggerated the spiritual bond thing just a little.
      Mr. Mitchell: Yeah, yeah, we got that.

    • Mitchell: Intel looks good; we've got ourselves a space train full of evil Orville Redenbacher.

    • Jackie: I can't remember. Did you go to GW?
      Vala: Oh, I didn't attend school. As much as I was sold as a domestic servant to a weapons smuggler named Firenze. After I killed him and won my freedom I considered my education more or less complete.
      Jackie: (nervously) Well, it was sure nice to meet you.

    • Amy: (about Vala) She seems nice. You two make a good couple.
      Mitchell: Oh, no we don't.

    • Mitchell: (about Amy) She's a nice girl. I like her.
      Vala: Nice? She's a cure for insomnia.
      Mitchell: Well, we can't all make the brilliant decisions you made. How many times have you been married, anyway?
      Vala: Legally? Um, well, it's hard to keep track.

    • Female Assassin: You should have gone with my first option, Doctor Jackson, it would have been far less painf... (gets run over by a bus)

    • Mrs. Mitchell: Well then I take it you two are quite...
      Mr. Mitchell: ...serious?
      Vala: Oh, absolutely. Well, I mean at first it was just sex sex sex in all rooms of the house at all times of the day, but once we got a chance to get to know each other we formed a deeper connection. A spiritual bond, you might say.

    • Vala: Darrel, there's something I think I'm suppose to tell you now.
      Darrel: What?
      Vala: I'm married.
      Darrel: Aw, you're kidding!
      Vala: Something I don't like to talk about much... he's a religious zealot bent on total domination of every human being in this galaxy.
      Darrel: So you're separated?

    • Mrs. Mitchell: Here's some extra towels. The spare bedrooms all made up.
      Mitchell: All right, great. Where do you want me to sleep?
      Mrs. Mitchell: Well I thought that you two would.
      Mitchell: No, Mom, that's okay.
      Mrs. Mitchell: It's all right dear, I'm not as old-fashioned as you think.
      Mitchell: What?
      Mrs. Mitchell: You know, sometimes I think Cam finds it convenient to forget that I grew up in the '60s. I could tell you some stories.
      Mitchell: No, Mom! No! Mother please, we don't want to hear your stories...
      Vala: I do.
      Mitchell: No!
      Mrs. Mitchell: We'll talk later.

    • Mitchell: No doubt about it. There is blood in the water. Only question is, which enterprising shark will be the first to take advantage of it?

    • Daniel: And you might have gotten away with it too if it wasn't for us meddling kids.

  • NOTES (5)

    • The shot of the cargo ship heading for Earth is a re-use from the season five episode "Fail Safe."

    • Excerpts written by: Robert C. Cooper, Ron Wilkerson

    • Once again the DeLuise family have a significant influence over a Stargate SG-1 episode. Directed by Peter DeLuise, this episode numbers amongst its stars his wife Anne Marie DeLuise who plays Cam Mitchell's old high-school heart-throb Amy Vandenberg.

    • In the hallway of Cam's high school there is a poster where Damian Kindler, the writer of this episode, is running for Class Treasurer as well as a poster for Peter DeLuise, the directer of the episode, who is running for Class Secretary but the letters preceding "ass" have been crossed out on both posters.

    • This episode first aired on the UK channel Sky one, on February 6, 2007, at 8:00pm.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Daniel: And you might have gotten away with it too if it wasn't for us meddling kids.
      This is an allusion to the detective/ghost busting kids in Scooby Doo. Something which was most often said as: "..and I might have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you pesky kids" by the bad guy in each episode.

    • Mitchell: Yeah, me and Daisy, we're living large.
      This is one of several allusions to The Dukes of Hazzard. Others include Vala's short shorts and a reference to moonshine.
