Quickie first impressions

SG1... suckage to the Nth degree. But maybe it'll get better once Carter returns. Today, it was basically the Ben and Claudia show, only not as fun as Farscape.


I'll write more about it when I'm actually coherent.

I liked the Ben and Claudia show just for it being that. They're always entertaining if nothing else. The whole Arthurian bit makes me twitch, however.

SGA was quite good, even though I was lost at times since I don't follow it.

Yeah, I mean, I like Ben and Claudia, but in mixing fandoms, SG1 was lost. Daniel didn't even seem like Daniel, Sam wasn't there (though I can understand why, OOC), and Teal'c barely was. And I understand they needed to introduce Ben's character, but it felt like too much too soon, yanno?

Like, I would've prefered not putting Ben and Claudia back together until a couple more episodes in. But maybe I'll feel different when I watch the ep again.

Some of the scenes were decent, and at least they had SOMETHING to show why the other characters weren't around, but from bits of pieces of what I've seen of other shows, it did fall a little flat.

I can't say much as to the characterisation though. To me, Daniel had moments of being all annoying/slightly like a jerk, but I'm not sure if that's normal.

Plus Ben just seemed a little too sane!Chrichton-y at times. Might've been because of Claudia.

I'm thinking they put them together on the first ep because that was at least a chemistry/pairing they knew would do well together. Plus, a draw for the Farscape fans.

I think Daniel would've been more like himself without Vala. Because he really dislikes her and being stuck with her like that makes him pissy. So anyone coming in from Farscape fandom would just see 'omg this guy's a total jerkoid', which isn't really fair, I guess.

Yeah, it did seem like they were trying to bring in the Farscape people, but then it felt like the SG people were being left out in the cold.

Hehe, I thought that bit where Ben's stuck with Teal'c in that chamber and Teal'c starts shooting the wall and Ben freaks out was sooooo Crichton. It made me chuckle.

I do like Ben's character, and Vala is amusing (plus, Claudia, come on, she's just great and I love her). I guess I just need time to adjust to this being something other than SG1 as I know it.

Are you telling me the Siege 3 is aired? :O :O Why haven't I seen it?

It was only on in the US? You should be able to torrent it now, though.
