avatar An epic plan devised by Vala leads to the capture of Adria by Ba’al which wasn’t really the idea but hey the best laid plans and all that. Well fooling Adria into believing Vala had been turned against by the SGC after they suspected her of being under the influence of Adria worked well and of course getting Adria to the location of the trap was flawless but no one expected the Jaffa of Ba’al to crash the party. Of course it gets worse as Ba’al looks to use Adria as an uber host and once under his control he would have full access to the armies of the Ori but it doesn’t turn out too badly when SG1 and the Odyssey launch a covert attack and kill Ba’al (which makes about a dozen dead clones this episode) but they were too late, Ba’al and Adria are one, creepy.

Dominion doesn’t finish there though, the Tok’ra are called in to remove the symbiote but in pure spite it releases a poison into Adria and she then realises that the only option is to fully embrace her physical and intellectual perfection and to ascend but that’s a two edged sword, maybe she now has full access to a galaxy worth of power from the followers of Origin or she may just be Anubis times a thousand…

Well wasn’t Dominion a brilliant episode, it begins with you scratching your head as the events surrounding Vala are retold and make no sense given what we know but it soon becomes clear and then the uber twist with Ba’al getting involved and then the twist with the clone massacre and the conquest of Adria. Deep breath the episode ends with the accession of Adria and while certain plot arcs can be considered closed there is more than enough wiggle room to make The Ark of Truth a reality. Kudos to Morena and Cliff who both really shone and maybe were a little larger than life but I think SG1 has always had it’s tongue firmly in cheek. Thank you to everyone that has listened to the show and continue to give us excellent support across social media, the polls and wrap up shows are on the horizon so keep your eye out and make sure you vote when the time comes:)

This weeks promo is for Generations Geek a father/daughter podcast which looks at movies, television, events with lots of interviews, excellent show. Next week we are going to be taking a look at the Stargate Atlantis episode Vengeance and we have a first time guest, hope you tune in and don’t forget that we’d love to hear what you think about anything Stargate.

Yep it’s that time of the week again and I’ve just watched the latest episode of Motive “Reversal of Fortune” and we got three former Stargate actors in prominent guest roles. Lets begin with Agam Darshi (SGA & SGU) who played Ginelle Mercier the tarot reader who was central to the events in the story, Josh Blacker (SGU & SGA) was playing a client of hers a Mr Martin Porterman and finally David Lewis (SG1) who was in the arc element of the series as Sergeant Gavin Saunders.

Once again Motive delivers a story that you can see going one way but eventually coming out as something very different, nicely done.

Of course we watch Once Upon A Time and while I don’t think the current story arc holds a candle to what has been presented in the past come on who doesn’t like dalmatians? Anyhow in the episode “Sympathy for the De Vil” we get some of the back story for Cruella and her mother Madeline is played by Anna Galvin who graced Stargate SG1 in the episode Collateral Damage and then she was in the Atlantis episode Remnants and finally four episodes of Universe playing Mrs Armstrong.

It is always a pleasure to watch television when Tim Guinee is going to make an appearance so delighted when he turned up in the episode of Forever “The Night in Question” playing Teddy Graves a Federal court judge. If you have been following the series the part played by Tim doesn’t directly affect the main arc but certainly vastly improves the episode as it weaves into the search for a certain individual.

I’ll admit I got a little buzz when a credit for Danielle Nicolet appeared during the opening of the latest episode of The Flash “Who Is Harrison Wells?” after all I’ve been a fan long before I even really knew her name after her guest spots on Third Rock from the Sun but then put the name to the face when she played Reese in the excellent SG1 episode Menace. Danielle is playing the DA for Central City so touchwood the character could become at least a semi-regular given that the story is opening up on the acceptance of meta humans amongst the public and law enforcement.

avatar2The Ancients built a geothermal operation on the seabed and as the jumper searches for it tensions rise, yeah the are we there yet cliche is in full force but not to worry the complex is revealed but Teyla is uneasy, she senses something but no life signs beyond those that came down in the jumper register. She convinces Elizabeth to allow to her meditate to see if she detect a Wraith presence and well the results are not good, Ronon gets a good old ass kicking and there are power outages galore. Teyla is corralled and has no memory of what she had been doing but then the scanners detect a Wraith cruiser on the seabed and now it’s Queen is roaming the complex and picnicking on the scientists who don’t seem to realise the danger they are in, at least for a short time.  The Queen is captured but she reveals that she has set her ship to self destruct, the thousands of years of being alone has caused her to roll the dice for all or nothing and the clock is ticking.

Submersion (30)

Submersion is an interesting episode, it paves the way for a major event in the finale so certainly serves a purpose but seems like it was a little rushed but saying that the redressing of the sets to give us the Ancient drilling platform worked very well. We got some good Rodney moments and Teyla got to see some action and how rare is it to see Ronon so beaten and so quickly, granted he really wasn’t expecting to but still. It’s always great to see how the makeup and effects departments picture the latest Wraith Queen once again played by Andee Frizzell, maybe not as aesthetically pleasing (depending upon your point of view) but certainly a more slimy and aquatic feel, the long shots of her swimming certainly seemed to indicate quite large feet assuming they were not flippers.

This weeks promo was for Beyond the Wall a Game of Thrones podcast from SpecFic Media and next week we are going to watching the Stargate SG1 episode Dominion in which we see the return of Adria, not many more SG1 episodes left :)
