SG1: Heroes  

So I cried and cried and cried and cried and cried. And cried. And then I cried. I was unspoiled. I knew who hadn't died, despite the heavy-handed misdirection, but I hadn't expected who did.

It was a good cry. I am true to my sex: I enjoy making myself miserable with fictions.

Saul Rubinek kicked ass in both eps. I loved his character, loved that he took what should have been a stereotype and shot it out of orbit. He just amazed me.

Where was Adam Baldwin this episode? He had all of six seconds. More misdirection, maybe.

The scene with the teddy bear, when the door opened: another six seconds, where I went to the slash place. Despite the crying. So very wrong, but I did.

The only true SG-related up note of the evening is that carolyn_claire is getting into the fandom.

This has no real spoilers, I think, but I guess I'll put it behind a cut tag.

Heh. I've heard that "teddy-bear slash" exists in SG fandom as in TS fandom, though I've never read any first hand, except maybe for one story that I blocked from memory. I have no recs for that. *g*

The first half of the two-parter was really good too, though there were some very strange pacing or structural quirks in each one--especially the tag of the last ep and the teaser of this one. I sometimes wonder at their editors, though maybe it's the writing team that deserves scrutiny. In any case, the writing was mostly quite good on the last two eps. I wish they could keep up this level of work throughout an entire season.

Far from the only. My mom and I both sobbed for the last 15 minutes of the episode.

I cried too. And cried some more, and then cried yet more when writing up my thoughts. They really got me, and I knew who X was going in. I didn't know anything else about the episode, mind.

I wished there'd been more Adam Baldwin, but he was so wonderful in part one that I can't really complain.
