okay, so I haven't watched it again yet but I thought I'd put this up before the next episode airs so I can get it off my chest.
I used to adore Joss, I thought he was one of the last original writers out there in a highly un-original medium (television) and much as I love the recent upturn in quality in recent episodes (is it a conicidence these episodes have featured Alexis Denisof?!) I have to admit the originality just isn't there anymore.
Now, I watch Stargate, I wouldn't go out of my way to make sure I see the new episode as soon as possible. I watch it when it's on if I'm around and when a new episode is on I usually am around. So anyway, as soon as I saw the whole scene where Wes is demanding that Illyaria leave and make way for Fred all I could see is Daniel Jackson saying "something of the host remains...."
Sorry Joss, I know the whole Fred/Illyria thing might seem original, but Stargate fans got bored of it six years ago.
I still love the episode though!
