Meridian v. Solitudes, and Fragile Balance v. Upgrades were a little tough for me.
Meridian and Solitudes has probably been the hardest one to choose between so far for me. The former is just a great emotional episode, and the latter is, well, that too, though on a more restrained note, not to mention it basicly is the origin of the Atlantis storyline. I ended up going with Solitudes, though- it's just one of my favorite episodes period- I'm a sucker for snow/ice world environments.
Though, last batch's A Matter of Time vs Reckoning part 2 was up there in terms of hard choice- how can one choose between what it arguably the best gate-problem episode (outside of Window of Opportunity) and what is essentially the ultimate climax of the first eight seasons?
Who took the sticky off?
Is this dead?
not dead, just need to extend the sticky date, thats all.

M.A.L.P. Bracket, Round 2:
-721/722: Lost City
The SGC locates a Repository of the Ancients and when Anubis attacks O'Neill d
ok...wow it's hard now.
GDO Match 1: The Curse
GDO Match 2: Double Jeopardy
DHD Match 1: Out of Mind
DHD Match 2: Children of the Gods
*note* this was extremely difficult given the relative nature of both stories...essentially both being "beginning" stories in themselves. Moebius nearly wins just for the lake scene.
"you weren't there!"
All things being equal, I have to tip my hat to the pilot. Nudity is the tiebreaker!
MALP Match 1: The Gamekeeper
*note* I'm pretty darn sure that I will be in the minority in this matchup. Lost City could've (and now that I've seen the finale, should've) been the Series finale. The battle is epic, the emotion is raw...and when Hammond goes to ram Anubis' ship, you're scream "YOU ROCK HAMMOND>>>GO BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Unfortunately the crisscrossed Weirs, the rehash of the ancient learning device, and the finale fate of Jack (which is connected unavoidably to how lame they bring him back) results in this one falling a few pegs when looking at it from a pure objective "how does the episode work on it's own feel."
Gamekeeper, though a touch on the Star Trekish side of plots SG1 ever did, was fun, interesting from beginning to end, and an overall strong episode.
...my peace is said...perhaps I sway a single vote?
probably not...oh well.
MALP Match 2: The Fifth Race - By far the easiest pick of this round...when the learning device was new and cool!
The one thing I'll say about Gmaekeeper is at least Unending didn't end with the twist of SG-1 still being inside those game machines all this time...
wow...talk about a reset...I forgot how EARLY in the series Gamekeeper was.
If they actually pulled that kind of stunt!
wow...just the prospect make me shiver.
It'd have been the sci-fi equivilent of "it was all a dream".
Forever in a Day

Children of the Gods
The Fifth Race
You know, to me this stuff is so much more interesting than the [link=http://www.thevelvethottub.com]celebrity gossip [/link] and fashion that my girlfriend is into. Are there any women in the world that like this stuff. if so please reply . Just kidding...well somewhat.
out of mind
moebius part 2
(i'm a woman : )
I'm always apprehensive when nothing happens in here for days.
It's my fault, just been a busy week is all. Next round will probably be up tommorow.
Shall we just declare "Window of Opportunity" champion?
Sorry it's taking so long- got hit with a big job at work this past week, which killed my free time.
The Top Sticky!
WILL be continued very soon. I'm really, really sorry for the delays.
No worries man...we got a 6 month extended wait on any sort of continuation or closure on SG-1...I can be patient for a poll.
Nice to know it's not forgotten though.
I'm gonna desticky this until I'm able to continue it.
So I have to keep this on the top?
honestly...if all the images are already here...I could take over on this, I'd just need to make sure I get all the votes.
