Re: SG-U: 1.10 Justice
Just saw this episode. Things are really getting interesting and we're seeing the darker side of many of our characters.
It seems that some of Young's suspicions about Rush, while not always correct, were valid. The thing is that Young can't exactly claim any moral high ground over Rush after leaving him on the planet. They are perhaps as bad as each other - plus what Young did to Rush is exactly what he was accused of doing to...the dead man (forgot his name already)
I thought this was just going to be a typical muder mystery in space episode - not a bad thing at all - but the story became something else.
I've been enjoying the more human stories of this show without the need to introduce the next big alien threat (Gou'huld, Wraith, Ori etc) but I think the time is now ready to finally meet some aliens. The ship provided some interesting possibilities and I am really looking forward to next week's episode.
The thing that set this show apart from SG1 and Atlantis is that it is essentially a story about anti-heros. The only "likable" character on the ship really is Eli. However, they are quickly becoming a family and even unlikable characters are loved by their family.
Regarding Time, I found the ending quite acceptable. It was obvious what was going to happen. We didn't need to see it. What we were witnessing the entire episode was one version of the timeline (the earlier timeline was seen entirely through the Keno) so I didn't take it as an unresolved cliffhanger at all.
