And we continue our SGA re-watch with…First Contact!
Hey! Another great episode. We’re on a roll! Lots to love about this fast-paced episode (compliments of golden boy Martin Gero) but, of course, at the top of the list is special guest archaeologist…Dr. Daniel Jackson. Loved the rapid-fire interplay between him and McKay. But, again, who cares what I thought. What did Akemi think?
She took an immediate shine to Daniel (“He is handsome!”) who she thought looked kind of familiar (“He looks like Jeff from Community.”).
Less a fan of their super quick dialogue which she had trouble following, eventually giving up with: “Faster! Faster!” Still: “He is very nice looking guy. Just speaks too fast.”
After Rodney was whisked away by the aliens, leaving Zalenka to lead the science charge: “Now’s his chance!” I pointed out that if he really impresses and takes over the science team, what would become of McKay? A fair point. She’s a fan of Rodney McKay as well – although she doesn’t like the fact that everyone calls him Rodney now instead of McKay.
She continues to enjoy Robert Picardo’s turn as Richard Woolsey: “Bob is funny. I like his character. Nice and warm.”
And misses Mike Dopud: “Too bad Mike Dopud is not in this episode.”
Another round of compliments to Mark Savela and the VFX team, especially for the “shield guy scene” that was, in her estimation, “very Final Fantasyish.”
Overall, a most enjoyable episode – though maybe a little too fast-paced: “So manny things happening. Hard to organize my brain.”
