Stargate SG-1 Watchathon – ‘Forever In A Day’ (S03E10)

Description: Daniel Jackson reunites with Sha’re.

A rescue attempt to save many Abbydonian slaves on the planet Kasuf leads SG-1 to encounter Sha’re, Daniel’s wife. Daniel attempts to reach her but the Goa’uld is too strong and tries to kill him. Teal’c intervenes by killing Sha’re and thus earning Jackson’s anger.

After returning to Earth, Jackson resigns from SGC but has visions of Sha’re, urging him to return to SGC so he can find their son. Many things ran through my mind while watching this. One, would the government just let Daniel walk back into civilian life what with all the above top secret information he knows? Maybe. But more importantly, is it just me or does anyone else find the Daniel centric character episodes to be, well, less than intriguing? I don’t know what it is, maybe Shanks isn’t as good at drama as he is at his regular character or maybe the writers can’t put together a really decent character episode for Jackson. Whatever the case, I find myself leery of watching any of his character episodes, I just don’t find them that interesting.

And can someone answer me this: Why in the hell didn’t Teal’c tell everyone about ‘punishment’ for two Goa’ulds who conceive a child? Wouldn’t that have been nice to know oh say, way back in season 2? Yes, the whole introduction of this ‘harseesis’ is shoehorned in and badly.

Oh wait, it’s Bobby Ewing all over again! Good grief.

Best Lines:

[O’Neill talks to Jackson about his leaving SGC.]

O’Neill – “We both know you can’t stay away.”

Jackson – “Then I guess we’re both wrong, ’cause I’m gone.”

O’Neill – “Give it a week. You’ll miss me.”

Jackson – “Yes, all the salty, bad-tempered insults, all the illogical arguments…”

O’Neill – “Okay, you’ll miss Carter and Teal’c.”

4 Comments on Stargate SG-1 Watchathon – ‘Forever In A Day’ (S03E10)

  1. I think you are wasting your time. All the episodes you review (or most of them?) are “just ok” at best. I don’t quite understand why you keep watching and posting, unless you are paid for it.

    I get the sf signal rss feed and it’s usually interesting. Since I don’t live in the USA I cannot watch the embedded video in these posts, but I don’t think that I would watch them anyway. The reviews here are not exactly enticing.

    Just dropping a line, maybe a little feedback could help you get out of the rut and look out for something better to watch πŸ˜‰

  2. Yesterday’s episode (S02E09 – Rules of Engagement) gives me a 404 when I try to view it.

  3. Agreed on Daniel – I’ve posted my feelings about him previously. I realize it took this long to find Daniel’s wife because the writers wanted it this way but there are a few episodes where I ended up questioning Daniel’s desire to find her – he ends up seeming as though he cares more about knowledge than actively searching for her. Yes the knowledge is important but old relics and ruins weren’t ever going to give them her location.

    P.S.  Check your numbering on the episodes you’ve got a few season three episodes labled as season two.

  4. Please don’t stop the watchathon! I cannot watch the embedded videos either, but I like the calm non-fanboy-style a lot.

    And the “Best Lines” alone make reading the reviews worthwhile .
