The Observations of soulonds9, New Stargate SG-1 Viewer: Part I

"Jeez! What is it with Daniel walking right into dangerous situations? It's like: 'Okay, Daniel, let's get out of here.' 'No, wait, I have to study it!'"

My little brother is nearly finished with the first season of Stargate SG-1, and the above was his choice observation of this evening. I, naturally, laughed out loud.

I'm not a dyed-in-the-wool SG1 fan. I enjoy it, certainly- particularly the earlier seasons. Possibly the show's biggest strength is the overwhelming likability (and, yes, as andrastewhite recently discovered, also the sex appeal- mmm, Daniel especially is sex on a stick *g*) of the main characters, and the writers are more adept, I think, at coaxing natural humor from the team in the earlier seasons than in the later. But I wouldn't call myself a true member of its fandom. I am, however, familiar enough with SG-1 fandom to know that soulonds9's observation is far from new. ;)

Meanwhile, I have now met Chiana. Those Nebari are charming little totalitarians, aren't they? Ripped right out of A Clockwork Orange, me thinks. But now that I'm starting to get acquainted with our tricky, nubile, bendy young friend, I am beginning to see some glimmers of ideas for the MULTIVERSE FICATHON OF DOOM! Oh, yes. *eg*
