  • baal is back, but not dressed like a clown!

    although this was a relatively unexciting episode when compared with the recent exploits of sg1 attempting to foil the evil plots of the ori it was very interesting and opens up some interesting plots for the future.

    with a member of the system lords, baal, kicking back on earth as a public figure it allows for another new direction to be played out in the stargate universe. there have been issues with earths security in the past but now it's a whole other kettle of fish. what are baal's long term plans for earth? and how can sg1 foil them without compromising the sg program or causing any collateral damage to the general populous.

    i like to see the g'auld beign able to pose a threat to earth even though their powers have been greatly diminished.

    oh. and the teleporting of the building into space was a stupid idea. a much more logical choice presents itself. the local area is evacuated within 5 blocks and the core infrastructure of the building was laced with naquadria. so... teleport the core infrastructure and let the rest of the building fall to the ground, would leave convincing rubble and be a lot easier to explain than a missing building.
