Asta 2

Oh No! More Stargate!

Well, I talked about Pt 1 of the premiere I figured I owed it to you to talk about Pt 2.

Because someday when you least suspect it it will totally save your ass. I find it sort of clever that a watch got Teal'c to join the good guys. It actually makes sense that in such a low tech society with only the gods having any real power that something like a watch (oh, and maybe the big guns) would make one believe that here is a chance to beat the Goa'uld. However, Teal'c's switching allegiances seemed abrupt. It was obvious that he was troubled by what he was made to do, but why? I know, they'll probably be more explanation later, but I need setup NOW.

The battle at the gate was actually pretty exciting. I was waiting for something bad to happen to Kawalsky because he's had about as much screen time as the main cast and...he's not in the main cast. I'm a little confused about the embryo that pulled a Chekov on him. Do the embryos not affect their Jaffa hosts? Or do they just not affect their host until they reach maturity and this one just hit maturity?

OK, could they have found a worse actress to play Sha're? And she's not even gorgeous. I could at least understand it if they hired someone really hot, but she's got nothing going for her.

Now for a birthday rundown. I very belated Happy Birthday! to one of my oldest, yet youngest online friends ;) manynames. Hope you had a great one. :)

For those who don't put their birthday info on their user info page :p, carrielee, a fellow survivor (as well as manynames ) from The Board That Shall Not Be Named. Though I think we are much closer now thanks to our mutual love of hot viper pilots and pretty sailor boys. ;-) And speaking of the sailor boys, a more recent acquaintence who helped me muchly find my way in the HH fandom is nolivingman. I hope you both are having spectacular slash filled celebrations. :)
  • Current Mood: happy happy
Thanks for the explanation on the symbiote. I should have known you'd come through. ;)

IMDB to the rescue, Sha're is Vaitiare Bandera and Surprise! she hasn't acted since SG-1. Would it be tacky to assume she could be living off child support payments?
What's really sad is that the actress who played Shauri in the movie was really good. Her character was fiesty and had a backbone and played a pivotal role in inciting the rebellion asgainst Ra. By contrast, the actress who played Sha're (and yes, the name did change) is a mousy wimp who spends much of the time being clingy and spineless. She's pretty much universally loathed.
I've seen the movie a couple of times, but not recently, yet I did recall Daniel's wife having what most of us refer to as a personality and a purpose. Here she just seems like a tool to get him on the SG-1 team so, in that respect, she worked, but I didn't give a damn about what happened to her.
I noticed that after Sam asked Daniel about Sha're and he mentioned that her father gave her to him that they were conveniently interrupted and the subject was dropped. I probably shouldn't concern myself so much with a character that's barely around and will be forgotten.
Yes, and now I've even got Stinky in on the slash. My work here is done.

Thanks for the b-day shout out. I didn't even know it wasn't on my info page. Perhaps I'll remedy that.
Stinky is into the slash?! How? What? When? And having recently read Archie/Bush/Horatio fic I still say that THAT is far more wrong. :p
The battle at the gate was actually pretty exciting.

There were lots of explosions. It was very satisfying.

Do the embryos not affect their Jaffa hosts? Or do they just not affect their host until they reach maturity and this one just hit maturity?

The larval goa'uld don't really communicate with the Jaffa who carry them; Jaffa carry their larvae in a stomach pouch, and it's every bit as gross-looking as it sounds. When a mature goa'uld takes a host, it enters through the back of the neck and takes over the host's mind, which is quite a different procedure from incubating in the pouch.

Vaitiare Bandera is... remember the Copa Cabana goa'uld video we saw in Vancouver, with the full frontal nudity? (The show started on Showtime; obviously, SciFi cut that bit.) I don't think they hired her for her acting, let's put it that way.

You're getting sucked in. ::waggles hypnotic fingers::
So when the Goa'uld jumped into Kawalsky it went in through his neck. It looked like it went in through his ear. Either way, ewwwww! And, again, this makes sense, a Goa'uld in the stomach would have a problem controling it's host.

I remember Vaitiare from the vid. Hard to miss her. I still don't find her that attractive, but then I've been spoiled by Claudia, Gigi,Tricia, Katee, Mary, Amanda, and just about every other woman on Sci-Fi Friday.
Goald usually go through the back of the neck, but really they can enter the head anyway they wish, so it may have gone through his ear.
