Topic: 2x16 The Hunt

I don't like what Greer has turned into. Soft and weak and second guessing.
Otherwise kinda filler episode.
More people got killed and by the amount they had originally the people coming thru the stargate, they should be only have 10-15 people left now.

Agreed - also the infection worries we had were totally abendoned by the mental issues.
And indeed they killed off too many people without any reason. It was intelligent life after all, so fire up the BBQ with the rest? neutral

The stasis pod side plot on Destiny was fun though - nice character development big_smile

Yup, that was the only saving grace of this episode. I liked the idea of the intelligent hunter and the character development with the Alliance dude, but Greer changed too much. I hope this was just a "he needs to get back to himself" episode and he'll be the old Greer from now on. Also, do they really have to introduce two new love triangles?!? It was bad enough with Eli - Chloe - GI Joe in the first season and now that that is finally over ... we get two new ones? And one of them involves the commander? Gimme a break!

Do you mean Colonel Young and TJ?
If yes then they have had a long relationship already.

Yes. But now we have the former alliance dude Varro, who hasn't been on the ship as long as them. Although, this love triangle isn't exactly super fresh, I agree on that

Not just the Spanish maine my love. The entire ocean. The entire world!

I don't think Young new about TJ's feelings towards Varro. That was kind of the point of the last scene. I'm fine with Young pining after TJ, but making it another love triangle is just superfluous.

Re: 2x16 The Hunt

I was a bit bugged by the whole "he recognized fire as intelligence and so he let us go", but he didn't recognize our weapons, explosives or use of the Stargate, as intelligence?

Re: 2x16 The Hunt

I was bugged by the whole concept, because i really do not like hunting at all and also never likes that "supremacist/chauvinistic" view on other lifeforms and/or civilisations that sometimes pops up in the SG-series so i did not watch it i just skipped through it so it would not miss anything plot-essential.

It was actually bad last week too when they decided that they could do as they please with that other people/civilisation just because they were not as advanced as "we"  are. Mckay had some genuine asshole lines there when he talked to those other scientists. It was the same concept as this weeks, "we can kill everything that we do not think is intelligent".....wtf? We have seen it many times before, when they just barge in with high-tech weapons and take over in some medieval place even though they claimed in the earlier seasons that they should NOT do that to foreign cultures as far as i remember.

Maybe among explorers in medieval times, that would be an understandable attitude but hardly these times. Some really horrible crimes against nature has been committed with that attitude in the past.  Intelligence is hardy a deciding factor in questions like these, because most organisms has a role to fill in an ecosystem, no matter how intelligent they are, actually the bottom of foodchains usually consists of organism that just "exists" but they are still extremely important.

Those creatures could be the last of their kind as far as the SG-team knew. A ship full of scientists and explorer would/should not act like that at all. Also, who decides what intelligence is? And, by what logic is it ok to kill things in general just because they are not deemed intelligent? Also, where do you draw the line then? How intelligent must you be to be allowed to live? Maybe they should kill anybody with an IQ lesser than Mckay, Rush and Eli?

I demand a much higher moral/ethic/scientific standard from sci-fi than that.

Re: 2x16 The Hunt

Why should scifi display higher moral standards than real life? situations where the stronger power try to dominate the weaker, accours all the time in the world. why would stargate be any diffrent. And i can´t see the problem in hunting for food. Meat is good.
