The Great SyFy Rewatch: Day 43

Day 43 / 236 Days Until I Ship

Today was "Missing" and "The Seer."



I almost forgot to do this today, as my parents are here and, well, they can be distracting, even when they're not in the same room. (Most annoying thing though? The high was 96 degrees today, which I suffered through as I'm not allowed to turn on the AC, and the moment they arrive, they do so. Which isn't really so bad as, again, living in basement, but their presence does mean I can't wear shorts, as doing so would reveal two of my tattoos, the existance of which make my parents very uncomfortable. And one of which they still don't know about. But whatever.)

Anyway, "Missing" is interesting for two reasons: One, Teyla being a BAMF, which is more exciting in some ways than anyone else being a BAMF - blame attending an all-girls school and frequent "girl power" lectures on that one, I guess. Two, something interesting happens with the Athosians, which is probably bad of me to think because, hey, they're being experimented upon. And, for the record, Keller is annoying as anything in this one - more so than Rodney ever manges to be - but it is kinda in character, so I don't mind. Even if I hate her for mocking Rodney during/after this episode.

"The Seer" annoys me, more or less, though it's good to see Todd again. But I find the “The future is pre-determined by the character of those who shape it” point Carter and Davos make to be interesting, mostly in light that I finally finished reading Douglas Hofstaeder's Godel, Escher, Bach today and the self-referencing causality reminded me of it. I'm a more "No fate but what we make" type of person myself.

Random thoughts: 1) Keller really can whine, and not productively the way Rodney can. 2) Say what you will about Teyla being the token woman/alien/character of colour on SGA, she is a BAMF. Even pregant. 3) Prophesy annoys me. 4) I love Todd. 5) The scene in "The Seer" where John and Rodney are talking about if they did the right thing with the Replicators? McShep gold. And so wonderfuly amazing it almost makes the rest of the episode bearable.

Is Missing the one where John and Rodney are discussing super heroes and the actors who played them, and Ronon walks up to them and is immediately completely lost? I love that entire bit.

1) Keller really can whine, and not productively the way Rodney can.

I agree. Enough said, I think :P

2) Say what you will about Teyla being the token woman/alien/character of colour on SGA, she is a BAMF. Even pregant.

YES. It's so rare that we got to see her be completely BAMF. I love it XD
"Missing" is the one where they're talking about the superhero actors, and, yes, it's amazing.

1) Amen.

2) Ditto.
Some of them, yeah. Others, eh, not so much. When I'm usually rewatching, I usually fast forward thru the dull bits - usually the teyla and ronon bits. But I'm being pendantic about this one, so...
