This episode pushes the envelope on angst. It's hard for me to watch towards the end. I don't come close to crying or anything, but my chest gets tight and my mind shies away nervously from the emotions and existential implications. I think in rewatching this is actually magnified by having read The Cost of a Used Spaceship and also knowing what's going to eventually happen in canon to synthetic Daniel. I want to reread the above story but I don't think I can right now. It'd be too much: emotional oversaturation. Gah.
I've watched "New Ground," "Maternal Instinct," "Crystal Skull," "Hathor," and "There But for the Grace of God" also. I'm thinking next: "1969," "The Broca Divide," "Urgo," "The Torment of Tantalus," and--if I can stand it--"Double Jeopardy." I've seen "2010" and "Absolute Power" fairly recently and I don't need to watch "A Hundred Days" or "Shades of Grey" again at the moment. I only have up through season five--any other suggestions?
ETA: Ooh, must watch "Legacy" before anything else. Schizo!Daniel. Yay!
