Happy Valentine’s Day! I do not think of myself as a sucker for romance (as I groan every time two characters don’t kiss in a movie). BUT I am a total sucker for friendships between two ladies, especially if they support each other in navigating a man’s world. In the time-honored tradition started by Leslie Knope, here are my five favorite female friendships:
Stargate SG-1 season 3 continues the momentum of season 2 by solving a couple main plot events and showing the evolution of Stargate Command’s involvement in intergalactic affairs. There is also some development between team members of SG-1, particularly with Jackson/O’Neill but Teal’c gets closer with Carter and Jackson. The season ends with another cliffhanger involving a destroyed Asgardian ship and a new enemy. Let’s take a bigger look at season 3, shall we?
Season 3 Episode 22 – SG-1 sans Jackson are beamed aboard Thor’s spaceship the Billiskner to help destroy a new enemy called Replicators.
Season 3 Episode 21 – SG-1 finds a crystal skull inside a giant Mayan pyramid. Jackson disappears so SG-1 turns to Jackson’s grandfather for help.
Season 3 Episode 20 – SG-1 locates Kheb, the Harcesis child of Amonet and Apophos, and a zen garden that houses a mysterious being of light called Mother Nature.
Season 3 Episode 19 – SG-1 arrives on a planet in a religious dispute over the origins of humanity. Of course, SG-1 disproves one of the dominant theories of the planet.
Season 3 Episode 18 – Colonel O’Neill breaks character for some insubordination and discovers a rogue NID team off-world.
Season 3 Episode 17 – Colonel O’Neill starts a new life on another planet after he is stranded from a meteor impact event.
Happy New Year dear reader!
Season 3 Episode 16 – SG-1 shares an imaginary friend named Urgo.
Season 3 Episode 15: The Tollans ask SG-1 for help in determining the fate of Klorel/Ska’ra who crash landed on their planet.
Season 3 Episode 14 – Stargate Command has been covertly invaded but no one wants to do anything about it.
Season 3 Episodes 12 and 13 – SG-1 literally goes to Hell, also known as the planet Netu.

Season 3 Episode 10 – Shau’re sends a message to Jackson by an episode-long dream sequence.
Season 3 Episode 9 – SG-1 encounters a training ground for Stargate Command recruits *cough cough* I mean Jaffa in training.
Season 3 Episode 8 – The team encounter a very Christian village plagued by an Unas from Sokar. Teal’c gets the worst bath ever and Jackson does not capture the affections of the vulnerable young woman.
Season 3 Episode 7 – The team discover which of them has the highest price on their heads and also bounty hunters exist.
Season 3 Episode 6 – SG-1 helps some friends from an alternate reality and Teal’c technically commits suicide . . . kind of.
Season 3 Episode 5 – SG-1 encounters the first society that actively rejects SG-1’s attempts to overthrow it. I’ve been waiting for this episode for a long time.
