Remember last week's Irish-jig-dancing Stargate Universe folly? That's all in the past now. This weekend's Stargate is back on top form. Sure it still had flaws, but the last episode changed everything — literally. Spoilers below.
This episode was the much-dreaded murder mystery SGU. When we first heard that there would be a moider aboard the good ship Destiny, followed by an investigation, the news was met with a general gnashing of teeth and fist shaking. And as much as the "murder" was a silly gimmick, the event itself forced out the plot that we'd all been waiting for, the Rush-and-Young showdown. It's about damn time.
The episode starts with a light-hearted bit, Greer's, "you say potato, I say disgusting," taste-test of the new alien food they picked up from a random planet. It made me chuckle and reminisce about a time when Stargate often featured silly little jokes being played on random crew members. It was a nice return to the comedy we know, even if the punchline was predictable.
