... so I'm really really
bad at updating this blog. So this marks the first fan friday, which will hopefully be something fan-related every friday.
Today, it's going to be how I feel about Unending.
Me? I'd have preferred a 'back to basics' episode. With SG-1 going through the gate, meeting interesting Aliens, solving their problem (or getting in trouble and getting back out
of trouble), having a ball. And yes, then
you could've gone the cheap route, and having it all been Jack's dream, as he's going to the SGC. Wake him up as they arrive, and then have him go down to stand in the control-room, as SG-1's gearing up for a real
mission, bantering about what interesting aliens they'll meet on this unexplored planet. And then end as they walk up the ramp, through the 'gate - and Jack'll be behind them, watching.
See? 2 minutes, and I've come up with something I
think is better by far. Because I used to love the old-style SG-1. Loved them exploring strange new worlds. Loved Jack in the center of it all. Because while I can buy Daniel being the central character in Stargate, I'm still partial to Jack-as-Dorothy. The one who goes out and finds new friends, who takes on a quest - not only for himself, but for his new-found friends as well (getting Sha're back? Freeing the Jaffa?). And I think that to have a last episode of SG-1 with no sign of and no mention of Jack is... a crime
...sorry, but that's just how I
feel about it. What do you
