Stargate SG-1: 200
(S10E05) The 200th episode of SG-1 had to be a party to make, because it's friggin' hilarious. Right after the little 'previously on stargate bit' (which worked better this time) meet the furlings... and they're wearing little furry costumes... Wait a minute. The crazy story lines start up right from the beginning.
As SG-1 reads scripts and discusses plots, we're treated to all sorts of possible story lines. The changes are usually pretty obvious, but they keep us on our toes with sneaky cuts from actual show to campy scenes. The whole episode total unadulterated fan service - I loved it.
Invisible jack is hilarious. Carter checking to see if he's in the shower was classic. Vala's attempts to make up the story were great. Her wizard of oz sequence was topped off when we see scarecrow Mitchell, Lion Daniel and tin man Teal'c. The service to Farscape was friggin' awesome. Sam playing Chiana was nice but once I saw Daniel in Browder's role I couldn't wait to see what Browder was playing. The absolute kicker was seeing Teal'c as D'Argo. I nearly fell off the couch.
Sam and Daniel messing with Mitchell over the mission file he's never read was great. Making Mitchell think that Jack's his daddy was priceless.
After this the show slowed down a little bit.
The Team America: world police spoof of Stargate went a little long, but the end delivered. I thought Daniel's head was dead on - Jacks was pretty good but Sam's just didn't seem right. It takes a while to get there, but I loved it when they finally gated out the wires are just hanging.
Teal'c PI was a great pitch, but watching Teal'c intimidate Marty over it was ever better. Then we get to the Sam and Jack wedding. Beaming in is definitely the way to go. (Unless you got splinched. That would suck.)
I'm a bit torn on the ending. I liked that they made fun of themselves with it, but I felt a little cheated. I just didn't need to see that much fake stargate action. Personally, I wanted to see them gate through and actually get some cake. (But I liked the bit about Asimov at the end)
