I dislike Pete Shannahan & he just showed up. I don’t think I’m gonna make it through the rest of this season.
Pete is only in a handful of episodes—three? four, tops. Don’t let him ruin your enjoyment of the show! And I invite you to browse my fucking Pete tag for me and others ranting about what a terrible character he was for the writers to have foisted on an awesome person like Sam Carter. :-)
Aw. Pete was a bad idea in general, but the DeLuise brothers are the best. For a cop character, he definitely wasn’t the brightest though, heh.
It wasn’t just that Pete wasn’t the brightest character; it’s that the way he was written, he was manipulative and borderline abusive and a stalker.

SG-1 + The Wizard of Oz
SG1’s love for WoZ is probably in my top 5 favourite things about that show, if I’m being brutally honest. And Chris Judge’s face in that middle one needs to be engraved on my tombstone in granite.

Jack and the magnifying glass.
"Colonel.. you’re Colonel.. you’re the wormhole.. consultant.."
Literally one of my favourite things all wrapped up in string is a great cast cracking each other up for reasons the audience can’t understand, and the blooper reel is just them laughing at each other uncontrollably. (Especially when it’s Rick just sitting there like ‘what did I do’ while everyone else just loses it)

#I could probably write thousands of words of meta about this#Sam is reason and science and evidence#Jack is instinct and faith#so many times Jack believes in Sam because it’s the only option#and Sam leans on that belief in her to get shit done#without Jack’s faith in her she’d be paralyzed by the facts#over the years Sam learns to trust Jack’s instincts implicity#and his faith in her bolsters her so many times#and over the years Jack learns to trust Sam’s science#remember Red Sky?#Jack telling the idiot townspeople to trust them because they can do miracles#then when Daniel questions his choice of words#Jack says well whatever Carter comes up with’ll look like miracles to them#their working relationship is a virtuous cycle of Jack’s faith and Carter’s intuitive leaps#and this episode was the beginning of that cycle in many ways#all of SG1’s faith in each other for that matter#Daniel and Teal’c were back on Earth working on the problem at the same time#having faith that Sam and Jack would keep each other alive#together they work miracles#TEAM LOVE
