Part of my problem is that I still see Crichton and Aeryn whenever they're on screen.

I think that's probably why I prefer the later seasons.

Of Farscape or SG-1? I much prefer the earlier seasons of both.

Later season of SG-1. I can just never take RDA's O'Neill seriously, especially given that he's meant to be a full colonel--his immaturity really grates on me.

I like FarScape as a whole but did prefer when Virginia Hey was on it, Zhaan was probably my most favourite character.

I take it you're not ex-military. He's entirely believable.

You're correct, just a civilian here.

I think I'm due another rewatch, so will see if I can appreciate him as I haven't before when I have my next SG-1 binge.

The problem, of course, is that any character seen through the lens of fiction has to reasonably be allowed a certain leeway in his behavior, because we're necessarily seeing the most dramatic and often outrageous moments of their careers and lives. Whether it be Horatio Hornblower, Jason Bourne, Colonel O'Neill, or my own Luciano Mantovanni, we don't often see them rushing to the bathroom with diarrhea, getting put on report, spilling a cup of coffee all over their new shirt, having an erection wilt (or worse never achieving one) and thereby marring/ruining a sexual encounter, or any of the other minor and major disasters all of us deal with at one point or another out here in the real world. The glares are steelier, the personalities larger than life, the cocks bigger (and in their own way steelier) than average ... and we only see them fail if it allows a buildup to their later success.

So in that sense, Bry, you're absolutely right: Colonel O'Neill would not run his yap to General Hammond the way he does almost all the time. But might their relationship progress so that he would do just that, say, seven or eight times over a few years during their long association together as comrades and friends? Absolutely. It's just that we see those isolated incidents as, you guessed it, seven or eight episodes.

Nature of the beast.

RDA and Browder both did well on Stargate. However, I prefer RDA over Browder. I also liked Joe Flanagan as Shepherd. He makes a good representation of Mackenzie Calhoun in Star Trek: New Frontier.



I prefer the SG-1 Universe. RDA was great, but so was Browder. I can't choose between the two of them. I did like Joe Flanagan, you're right, he would make a great Calhoun.
