I gotta say, I don't get this person hatein' on Pete like that. Pete was great! I would have fallen in love with him in a heartbeat. Are you kidding? Sweet, sensitive, yet capable of action...nice guy who doesn't let people push him around...wears his heart on his sleeve but doesn't whine and bitch when it gets stomped on?
Hes a DOLL! It's not his fault that Sam is in love with Jack and (despite being a cosmic genius) has the emotional IQ of a turnip.
'course, I might have been more generous to Pete just because I figured he was going to die. There's two things that'll get you killed in the SG-1 universe: Being Daniel and loving Sam.
