I guess I have too much time on my hands and should actually spend my lunch hour *eating lunch*... But I really have to vent, if just for a moment. I was checking the SciFi Channel's BBoard, going over to the Stargate SG-1 folder, and, like the much-too-curious person that I am, clicked on a thread in there called "Something different about Daniel..." The first post said they noticed something different about Daniel in Memento Mori. Since this contains a few spoilers, read more in the cut:
Anyway, someone joked that since Daniel kept insisting that dinner with Vala wasn't a "date", they think he's going to come out of the closet soon. LOL. Just a joke.
Another person says, "Sounds more like wishful thinking on your part. We all know Daniel is still not completely over sha're yet but I do see the romantic love interest as a possible plot in the future."
And yet another one responds, "Yeah did you see that cute worried look on his face when he was in his office? I dont think he gets the same look when carter or teal'c are ever missing. :D It didn't look like he fell asleep the whole (what was it three weeks) Vala was missing."
Which REALLY ticks me off!! First of all, I'm willing to bet this person is a new fan. Daniel never looked worried when either Sam (must not like Sam much either if she refers to her as "Carter") or Teal'c were missing?? What is this person on?! Did she ever watch 48 Hours when Teal'c was trapped in the wormhole? I'm pretty sure Daniel looked worried there. And did she ever watch Death Knell? Remember when the Tok'ra and Jaffa were arguing while Sam was missing and Daniel almost explodes at them that his friend is missing while they're wasting time here?!
The thing that really bugs me about this is that I can't take this person to task because for some reason I can't register at SciFi.com. I did like 6 times already (at first was trying to register for the Get in the Gate sweepstakes) and I never get that all-important comfirmation email from them. I guess my stupid ISP thinks they are spammers and filters their emails out...or else they think my ISP looks like a spammer and they cannot send to me. I've emailed them countless times about it and never received a reply. So not only do they suck for cancelling the show especially right after the 200th episode, but their website sucks too. I guess I can't really expect anything more from them.
So am I right? Daniel has looked worried whenever Teal'c or Sam were missing, hasn't he? Okay maybe the examples I gave were old episodes which don't reflect the "New Improved Daniel" who only cares about Vala, but ... wait a minute, Daniel looked worried when Sam was going to fall asleep in Morpheus, didn't he? And that was only about 5 episodes earlier. So yeah technically Sam wasn't missing, but she could have died.
Okay, I know I said this would be a quickie, but I just can't believe someone said this, and it really annoys me that I can't take them to task over this because SciFi.com has their heads up their...opposite ends.
Incidentally, here is the link to the thread in case anyone wants to see or might know a way of letting this person know that they're wrong...or something...
*quietly seethes* Guess I will look for some feel-good fanfic or something now...
