I forgot about that lol laugh.gif It was such a huge deal when it was first mentioned though. Has to be one of their worst. smile.gif

And I'm sorry I keep reading PoO as poo. So when you guys say each gate and DHD has it's own PoO on it, I'm just not hearing it right the first time...

It's been nitpicked for years. It has it's own thread, here.

I have two nitpicks to share. I've marked them as spoilers to be safe (they concern the last half of the 10th season) but if the mods think it's not necesary i'll remove the tags.

My answer to your question would be that they would prefer to stick with the territory they know best. I dont think they had to, but they prefer to live where they are.

There is a simple explanation, only one DHD was create for the show therefore the same symbols appear on each one. It's just an error made by the props department. They just replaced the keys on the DHD with the replicas seen in this episode.

Yeah we know that biggrin.gif But talking plot wise it could be explained by the theory we put out, it can't be disproved and would seem the most likely given that circumstances.

A lot of discrepancies are caused by production errors, instead of story errors.

Well, if you want me to continue the debate in the Spoilers and Speculation section, I must be sure that there are no spoilers from the upcoming movies in that thread. 1.gif

Yeah I know, there's no doubt that that is what this is, but still it's in the story it's interesting to come up with ways it could have happened in it smile.gif But yeah of course it is just a production thing.

That would be great, your opinion means a lot smile.gif Unfortunatly i can't control that and i do have a section of the message that deals with one of the movies (it's the 6th point)... If no-noe objects, i could copy it here (without the movie spoilers part).

My favorite nitpicks always come from the commentaries, since I prefer to let the actors and directors themselves do the nitpicking. James Doohan used to be really good at that on Star Trek. That's why I picked WormholeExtreme as my login name and a picture of Martin Loyd for my avatar, because that episode was a lot of fun to watch and then view the commentary. The episode was basically their way of making fun of all the mistakes they make on the show. bow.gif One thing I really don't get though? How is it that the camera crew was dumb enough to think a low budget tv series would be able to come up with a special effect of a space ship sescending on them that was so real that those that filmed it thought it looked realistic. I mean most shots like that have to be edited to look anywhere near that good on a screen. There is no way they could have made it look that good on an outdoor set. So why didn't they have to deal with people wondering where the ship came from? Of course it was also cool having those two guys at the end discussing whether the lame joke one of them told was good enough for a fade out. That could be explained away as banter amongst a film crew, but it really seemed like it was more of an issue of ending the suspension of disbelief. Which a lot of shows like to do occasionally just for fun. I really like when they use terms like "We Macguivered together a dialing system" To reference the fact that Richard Dean Anderson played MacGayver before he played Colonel Jack O'neil.

200 is a lot more entertaining for making fun of itself imo, some of the cracks that are made against the actors and characters are really funny. As well as making fun of other shows during it. But yes wormhole X-treme was very good, and it was actually the commentary that helped me get into them, I didn't really watch commentarries until I checked the one for that and then 2001 out. But it does help give a more indepth insight into some of the jokes.
That is a nitpick though yes, but best ignore it it was the 100th episode tongue.gif A couple of times during the 200th episode they did a similar thing (I.e. walter running down from the control room in his white clothing and coming out into the gateroom seconds later in full military gear), but it's part of the fun smile.gif

I havent read all of the post's, so if this has been mentioned sorry.
In the episode 100 days in series 3, after the stargate was hit by a meteor & teal'c had to go through and drill his way up, how did they dial home because the dhd was buried.
On a side note in the same episode the woman asked Jack to father her a child, they spent the night together.... I wonder if there is a little Jack jr around?

I guess they just unburied it.

This has been discussed quite a bit (a hell of a lot in fact). Simpel answer is, we dont know. People have speculated based on the very last scene when we seen her holding her stomach. IMO, it was the beginnings of a possible future story but TPTB decided not to continue with it.

In Point of View (s3e06), at the end, Teal'c and Daniel touch the mirror together. They have changed sides and arms after the transfer...

This shouldn't be a mirror reflection but a turn around 180 degres.
