The Hunt

In this weeks episode The Hunt a small opportunity to visit a welcoming world full of resources and wildlife, a deer like animal is sighted and Greer has a hankering for a good old fashioned BBQ but is unable to pull the trigger, it seems his recent emotional roller coaster has taken it’s toll on the hell for leather soldier. Something seems to spook the “deer” and then Scott is attacked and again Greer fails to fire which allows the “beast” to rampage through the nearby camp causing some injuries. TJ and Cpl Reynolds are missing and they are believed to have been taken by this huge predator, they have little look tracking the beast until Varro and the remaining Lucian Alliance soldiers offer their services being more familiar with the more day to day requirements of living off the land. The tracking party are however led into a trap clearly indicating this “beast” has intelligence and with more injuries Varro and Greer go on alone eventually locating TJ and using explosives distract the alien pack reach the cave. They find TJ and Reynolds along with this intelligent creature and Greer lowers his weapon in the belief that the animal recognises the threat and the removal of said threat, the animal backs off and lets them all leave. Meanwhile Brody has been locked in a stasis pod they recently found, Eli thinks he screwed up but it was actually Rush who was proving a point when it comes to jumping feet first into alien technology, a day later Brody is released in time for the Space Deer BBQ hosted by Becker with help from Varro who is now even closer to TJ than before.

The Hunt
The Hunt is pretty much as standalone episode no doubt written and prepared long before they knew of the shows cancellation so while it may seen like a wasted opportunity it’s understandable why the show was willing to tell this sort of story. The cutting of some TJ backstory doesn’t help but we do get some good character development between Varro and TJ and it’s a shame he ends up being the only Lucian soldier left on the ship, I would have liked to have seen more of Tasia played by Kyra Zagorsky who also appeared in the Atlantis episode Reunion. The CGI and location shooting were top notch as you would expect with this production and the issues Greer was dealing with give a lot more weight to his character. The “b” plot as it were dealing with the reveal of the stasis pods and Brody getting trapped in one provided the levity the episode needed and if for nothing else watching Rush smile as his made the younger scientists dance to his tune was a delight.

Our thanks to Ian for taking the time to join us over skype to talk Stargate and he’ll be back for the episode Blockade. This weeks podcast promo is for The SciFi Diner and next week we are joined by Miles one of the hosts of that show for the episode Common Descent, we hope you can join us too.

Seizure

The crew of the Destiny have to deal with a holidaying Rush in the episode Seizure as well as fall out from events on the planet Langara.

Seizure

Homeworld command are in negotiations with Langara to use their world as a staging post for dialing Destiny thanks to the veins of Naquadria that run through the planet. Naturally given two worlds have already been destroyed the Langarans are not overly enthusiastic and are also under pressure from the Lucian Alliance. The military led by Telford favour direct action as they believe the Langarans are already dealing with the Alliance and so a plan is formulated by Dr McKay and put into action. On board Destiny Rush is having a day off and is using the chair to send his consciousness into the ship’s computer where his and Amanda’s bits and bytes can overwrite each other with abandon. When it’s time to leave Rush finds himself trapped in the computer with no control over the programme currently running and Ginn is desperate to get critical information to Eli before the system breaks down with catastrophic results.

Seizure is an entertaining episode with a fantastic guest star including Victor Garber, Robert Picardo and of course David Hewlett. It’s a pity Jack only gets a mention but the screen is certainly full of quality acting and some excellent location work in a former power plant (now a museum) which would be familiar to many a Canadian sourced tv series shown over the last decade. It was interesting to see how confrontational Homeworld was based on the belief the Langarans were double dealing and that based on very suspect intelligence gleaned from encrypted communications. In many ways it’s not a side of the SGC we want and leans more towards the dark days of the NID or maybe just the desperation by one or two individuals pushing an agenda regardless of the consequences. Helen Shaver did a magnificent job directing her first Stargate episode especially given the complexity imposed by characters who had backgrounds on SG1 and Atlantis.

Thanks to Brad for joining us on this weeks episode and for sending in the voicemail feedback for last weeks episode “Hope”. This weeks promo is for the SciFi Dig Podcast a long running show hosted by Aaron which has taken a lengthy break recently but back with a bang. Next week we are going to be watching The Hunt and as always we’d love to hear from you so leave a comment here or visit us on social media:)
