  • Okay, let's just start by saying I love this show; it's stargate but of a different flavour. I loved the scenes with Jack and Daniel, but there was just ONE thing in this ep that messed it up for me

    Yes this show focuses more heavily on characteisation and their relationships than it does space battles etc. And it works; great, splendid, that's what SGU has become renound for. It was also a nice thing to see Shanks and Anderson back again (I can only assume why Jack asked Daniel to spy was because he was one of the few he was 100% sure he could trust) but the ONE thing that messed it up was the painfully obvious part of scrimping on the budget. The hyperspace cargoship bit was recycled and the only thing new was the cargoship decloaking which they recycled in the episode. But what really rubbed that in was when the troops ran in and, as opposed to actually seeing the ship leave with rush being bundled into it and being taken, you just had a rushing sound effect, some soldiers running round a corner and Daniel looking into the sky saying 'yeah, they got away' and we're all like "umm, yeah, I guess we'll have to take your word for that" Now I know I'm nit picking because i really do like this show and it has so many brilliant scenes (Rush asks why she killed the scientist and she replies calmly 'you said he was incompitent' and he bluntly replies 'I WAS STALLING!)so yeah, great ep with great characters and great to see some of the old SG1 gang back, but please don't taint that with painfully obvoius attempts to scrimp on the budget!
