|01:43 pm - Best & Favorite SG-1 Episodes|
I'm all into Stargate SG-1 right now, and realizing that even in the later seasons, where I find less to enjoy, there are still some amazing episodes.
So I thought I'd make some lists to show you all what I think the best episodes are, and which ones are my personal favorites. (Mind you, I've only seen up through the fourth episode of season 8, no further yet.)
Two-part episodes are being counted as single choices. *g*
Top 24 SG-1 Episodes:
Children of the Gods
Within the Serpent’s Grasp/The Serpent’s Lair
In the Line of Duty
A Matter of Time
Point of View
Forever in a Day
Shades of Grey
Window of Opportunity
The First Ones
Beneath the Surface
Now I'll narrow it down to 10, with a few words of explanation for each.
Top 10 Best SG-1 Episodes:
1) Children of the Gods
I fell so in love with Colonel O'Neill. This is a great pilot, picking up the ideas of the film and expanding them into a wonderful premise for a series.
One of the best character episodes, with a clever plot twist, even if it is basically h/c.
3) In the Line of Duty
Who *didn't* gasp in horror when Carter's eyes glowed at the end of the teaser? Talk about WOW.
4) A Matter of Time
One of the best sci-fi storylines the show has ever done; I couldn't believe they handled the time-dilation part of the plot with such deftness.
5) Forever in a Day
I do 'ship Daniel/Sha're, and because of that (and the lovely structure), this episode just killed me. An excellent way to wrap up Daniel's search-for-his-wife storyline.
6) The First Ones
The actor playing the young Unas is fantastic. The entire journey with him and Daniel, and Daniel's attempts to communicate, and the food-sharing scene at the fire ("I met my father-in-law this way....").
7) Beneath the Surface
Wonderful "discover along with the characters" episode, where SG-1's implanted personalities allow them to be other aspects of themselves (at least, that's how I see it).
Future-fic! Omgosh! Really awesome future-fic!
One of the best character-death episodes on any show I have ever watched. Full of lovely truth about purpose and changing the world, to boot. A painful episode, but I love it.
Lots of Jack, lots of Baal, lots of Ascended!Daniel, and a couple of conversations that make this episode basically the flip side of "Meridian."
Now for the three episodes I can watch over and over and over again, without ever getting tired of them.
Top 3 of My Favorite SG-1 Episodes Ever:
The First Ones

It's an ice planet, sir!
"It's my sidearm, Captain, I swear."
I just got to re-watch Solitudes. Sam looks so little after watching season 8!
Love that moment/quote! Hee hee hee... ship ship hooray!
"Daniel, will you tell them who I am? Please?"
"Okay. Love to. Who are you?"
So many good lines in that ep.
i've seen many of those but still have more to go!! Want season 6 and 7!!

"Solitudes" got me hooked on Stargate. It's still one of my all time favorite eps. Thanks for a trip down memory lane. I may have to do my own top 24 list.
Ooo, I hope you do your own list; I'd love to read it, see where we match up and where we differ (I did notice I have a lot of Jack eps and Daniel eps and not quite so many Carter ones).

Okay, real quick
Just a reminder that tonight is the 200th ep.

Re: Okay, real quick
I'm gonna be watching that instead of calling you. :-) We've got to figure out another time.
The previews are weirding me out just a tad--I thought I not only saw "Wizard of Oz" stuff and "Trek" stuff, but something that looked vaguely Farscape-ish. *raises eyebrow*
Definitely looking forward to tonight!
Re: Okay, real quick
It's gonna be a blast.
