  • They wanted a declaration of friendship, and they felt cheated

      Stargate SG-1: Meridian is a show that changed the course of the series, and it’s one that frankly, I don’t watch. I saw it the first time and a couple of times after, and I’ve seen scattered scenes here and there, but otherwise, I refuse to watch it now.

      This is the show in which the producers made a very big mistake. Instead of writing a show that gave Daniel Jackson the exit he deserved, they wrote a show that not only


      got rid of Daniel, but introduced his supposed replacement, Jonas Quinn. Worse, Daniel dies because Quinn is a coward. The character was doomed from the start. What kind of crazy producer would do that kind of thing? Oh, yeah, Robert C. Cooper. Enough said.

      As I said, Daniel ‘dies’, only he really ascends, thanks to ole Oma DeSala, first seen in Maternal Instinct. She talks in platitudes and convinces Daniel that he can do great things as an ...


      • Ascended being. Poor Daniel falls for it, and convinces Jack to stop the attempts to save his life. It’s frustrating.

        The only good thing about the show was the wonderful scene between Jack and Daniel when Jack says how much he respects and admires Daniel. Still, Jack and Daniel fans were angered at the comment. What kind of thing is that to say to a dying friend? They wanted a declaration of friendship, and they felt cheated.

        Worse, the ever-smiling

        coward Quinn was always lurking around. I don’t even want to think about him yet.

        Stargate SG-1: Meridian is a frustrating show that never should have been written. The blame is all Cooper’s and before my blood pressure rises, I’m just going to say that it’s a tear jerker episode, well acted, but it never should have been in the first place. I will give it a high rating *solely* for the heartfelt performances of Richard Dean Anderson and Michael Shanks.
