Weirdest Dream lately :
I dreamed I was on the "other side" when my Dad was passing. I spoke to him and made sure he was okay. Then I woke, and knew he was gone. 30 minutes later, we got the call from the hospital saying that his blood pressure had crashed in the last 30 minutes.

Close the gate on your way out

Tonight, after 6 long years, the final episode of StarGate SG1 aired. Well, I say "last", but the show has been renewed for a season 7. I say "last", because this episode was written/conceived as a final episode for the series.

I suppose, it's good that season 7 is going to be made, because this episode was crap. Much as I love seeing Dr. Jackson back, he was criminally underused, and utterly inconsistant. His shoddy treatment of Sam has destroyed any faith I ever had that those two crazy geeks would get it together. It may have even convinced me that ol Danny is gay.

The Anubis threat gets escalated to nutty levels, with a deus ex machina up for grabs, with no build up or impending doom over the last few weeks/months. When they could have been forshadowing great things, we got filler episodes, dream episodes, episodes which did NOTHING for the plot, but did placate the ego's of the actors (who can't act), thinking they can WRITE. (I'm not naming names, but you know who you are CJ.)

For someone like me, plotline, continuity, are oh so important to a good story. This was just FX, FX, exposition, discontinuity, bad plotting, poor characterisation, and more FX. It also contained a totally lame Anubis explanation, and at least 1 plot revelation we ALL SAW COMING, but some of us were hoping we'd be wrong.

Sadly, if this is a taste of things to come, I'm just sorry they're making a season 7 at all.

It wasn't ALL bad. Jonas Quinn has totally kicked "Parker Lewis Can't Loose" and "Harold Emery Lauder" out of my head completely Congrats to the actor, he has REALLY made the character his own. I had my reservations when he joined the cast, but the guy has really pulled it off.
