[S6E7] Shadow Play BEST

Nemec's character replaced Daniel Jackson (portrayed by Michael Shanks) during season 6 after Shanks had left the show amid controversy after season 5. The producers based Jonas' motivation to join Stargate Command on his momentary reluctance to actively prevent Daniel's death, and his feelings of responsibility afterwards. Jonas was slowly integrated into the story in a prolonged transition stage over the first half of season 6. Nemec was open to continue playing Jonas Quinn after season 6, but a new contract was reached with Michael Shanks for Daniel to return in season 7. The role of Jonas was reduced to recurring status in season 7.

[S6E7] Shadow Play

Producer Brad Wright announced in September 2001 that an actor had been cast and that the new character would be someone whom fans would recognize.[17] An MGM Sci-Fi newsletter revealed Corin Nemec to play the role of Liander [sic] Quinn in "Meridian" in November 2001, fueling fan speculation of the identity of the new character.[18] Soon afterwards, producer Joseph Mallozzi revealed that Nemec's character appears in the first five episodes of season 6.[19] Meanwhile, Nemec started to work out six days a week in-between seasons and gained about 25 pounds (11 kg) to look bigger around the tall SG-1 cast.[16]

Mallozzi stated before the airing of season 6 that "Jonas will bring a unique alien perspective and ability to the team [that] will allow him to contribute in areas of expertise usually owned by [Carter] and Daniel."[20] Brad Wright hoped that "what Corin, as Jonas, will bring to the show is a renewed sense of amazement" of traveling around the galaxy although older characters have grown accustomed to it.[21] The season 6 opening two-parter "Redemption" intended to establish Jonas as a team player who can contribute ideas,[15] although writer Robert C. Cooper felt the need to acknowledge and not "trivialize what the [Daniel Jackson] character meant to the team and to the show for five seasons".[3] The writers incorporated the initial viewer resistance to the change by making O'Neill the most resistant to Jonas' presence, allowing viewers to grieve Daniel and gradually come to terms with his absence.[22] The producers based Jonas' motivation to join SG-1 on his former reluctance to shut off the machine that indirectly killed Daniel, and his feelings of responsibility for Daniel's death.[3] Jonas was slowly integrated into the story in a prolonged transition stage over the first half of season 6.[15][23]

Nemec was open to continue playing Jonas Quinn after season 6 or in a feature film or a spin-off series,[15] but a new contract was reached with Michael Shanks for Daniel to return in season 7. The role of Jonas was therefore reduced to recurring status in season 7.[24] Nemec welcomed the producers' openness for story pitches and offered several story ideas. He wrote the mid-season-7 episode "Fallout" and considered pitching more stories afterwards, but he became busy with other projects.[16] Jonas is seldom mentioned in the series after this point but after Season 10's "Counterstrike" stated that the Ori conquered Jonas' homeworld,[11] Stargate producer Joseph Mallozzi said in his blog that "in [his] mind, Jonas went underground and is still alive somewhere, resisting the Ori army."[25]

With that definition comes the official blurring of lines between worlds. We did receive a prelude to this earlier in the season, when Mike stepped out of the shadows to talk to Kim for the very first time; again, two characters who have always belonged to the two different sides of this show. But that was a haunting blip in comparison to the final scene.

In an intricate setting, Clarke got that chance to retake control of her narrative. But it turns out it isn't that easy to cross the finish line when you have a darker mirrored version of what you could have been waiting to strip you of your life and projections that play off the demons that Clarke is still struggling to face.

Clarke had to have her biggest regret lingering in her mind because it then became a driving force for her demise. That was the true sore sport to hit for Josephine, the first time that Clarke gets a visual of Bellamy, and it is playing into all her doubts about where they stand.

Series creator Joss Whedon wrote, directed and composed the music for this episode in which a mysterious force impels the Scooby Gang to burst into song. Even Buffy devotees may be hard-pressed to find an episode as off-the-wall as this, as Sunnydale denizens become players in production numbers in which cast members do their own vocals. Hear Tara sing about her love for Willow! See Xander and Anya perform a duet! Listen to Buffy croon about her lack of life direction! Who's behind the music? Dawn provides the key.[1]

  • Acting for Two: The same actors played the dancing vampires and demon in "Going Through The Motions"the dancing street sweepers while Xander, Anya and Giles are walking down the street, and the puppet minions.

  • Actor-Inspired Element: The tempo of "Bunnies" was inspired by how Emma Caulfield would sometimes sing to Joss Whedon on set.

  • Awesome, Dear Boy: Broadway legend Hinton Battle agreed to play Sweet the Dancing Demon primarily because he was a huge fan of the show and thought the idea of getting made up like a demon would be "a stone cold groove" that he had never experienced before.

  • Blooper: During "Something To Sing About", Tara can be seen walking into a pole by accident and adjusting herself in the background.

  • The Cast Showoff: Played straight with several of the cast, particularly James Marsters, Anthony Stewart Head and Amber Benson (all three of whom are trained or professional singers; Marsters used to sing and play guitar in a rock band called Ghost of The Robot, Head has recorded several albums in England, and both Amber and Marsters guested on one of them), who get to show off their impressive pipes. Benson and Michelle Trachtenberg also display their dancing skills. Inverted with Willow having almost no singing lines on her own; (Alyson Hannigan specifically requested she be given as few lines as possible, because she considered herself a bad singer; "Under Your Spell" was originally written as a duet.) Michelle Trachtenberg also made this request, though when she's singing more in her natural alto during the verses of "Where Do We Go From Here?" instead of the falsetto she used previously, her voice is much stronger. Hannigan was reportedly quite surprised by how good her voice sounded in the final version, and regretted not singing more.

  • Completely Different Title: French: "Que le Spectale Commence!" (Let the Show Begin!)

  • Italian: "La vita è un musical" (Life Is a Musical)

  • Polish: "Zagraj to jeszcze raz" (Play It Again)

  • Portuguese (Brazil): "Quem Canta os Males Atrai" (Who Sings the Evil Attracts)

  • Creator Backlash: Inverted. Sarah Michelle Gellar hated the preparation for the episode and became very anxious about singing. However, she loved the finished episode and said she was glad she did it, though she also said she never wanted to do it again. In fact, Sarah accepted the lead role in the series Ringer on the condition that the show did not feature a Musical Episode.

  • Corpsing: Amber Benson and Emma Caulfield dance behind Sarah Michelle Gellar during the song "Something To Sing About" on The Bronze set. As the dance was ending, Amber made a misstep while turning and ran into one of the support pillars (you can see this near the end of the line "and every single verse"). Since the sequence was being filmed with a multi-camera setup, you can see her beginning to lose it in the next shot (the line "can make it that much worse") and she quickly ducks behind the pillar to get off-camera.

  • Creator's Favorite Episode: Joss Whedon and Nicholas Brendon named this as one of their favourite episodes. James Marsters named it as his favourite.

  • Deleted Scene: One line was cut due to length, about Sweet and Buffy:Giles: What does he want?Henchman: Her... plus chaos and insanity and people burning up, but that's more big picture stuff.

  • Edited for Syndication: The original runtime was over 50 minutes, so obvious trims were made for reruns.

  • Non-Singing Voice: Almost. Plans were to dub Buffy's singing voice with Jewel but Sarah Michelle Gellar didn't want to be the only cast member not doing her own singing.

  • Reality Subtext: Willow's one line during "Walk Through The Fire" - "I think this line's mostly filler" - references how Alyson Hannigan was reluctant to sing too much.

  • Scully Box: When Willow and Tara are walking over the bridge in "I'm Under Your Spell", you can see that Alyson Hannigan is wearing high heels to minimize the almost three inch height difference between her and Amber Benson.

  • Serendipity Writes the Plot: "Under Your Spell" would have been a duet. As mentioned below, Alyson Hannigan didn't want to sing. It ends up working better when Tara is singing it solo and becomes Foreshadowing when she realizes that Willow literally enspelled her, and is horrified on realizing it.

  • Wag the Director: "Under Your Spell" was supposed to be a duet between Willow and Tara. Alyson Hannigan wasn't comfortable with her singing and she requested to not have many sung moments. As a result, Willow has no solos or duets.

  • You Look Familiar: The vampires and demon in "Going Through The Motions", the puppet minions, and the dancing street sweepers are all played by the same three actors.

A man (guest star Greg Evigan) who inherits a taffy factory wants to sell the family business when he finds he cannot live in his beloved father's (guest star Louie Anderson) shadow. The angels show him how much people love his taffy store and the memory of his father.

The episode begins with candy children that have bodies resembling different shapes sliding down a slide, shouting with excitement. The kids are viewed from an horizontal angle in the next scene as they go through a playground-like structure. Finn and Jake are examining the "Catapilla Family." After watching Princess Bubblegum teach the children about the Food Chain, they head to the snack bar as Finn found Princess Bubblegum's class useless. 041b061a72
