I loved where Daniel explains why he brought books instead of a laptop. LOL LOL
I think his sarcasm is well placed most of the time smile.gif

Yeah - I'm surprised there aren't more posts for this one too!

QUOTE
What's with the "math thing" though? Remember how Daniel originally translated the code as "three to the blue, four to the orange," and it didn't work? And Sam figured out that they must also have a zero? And after that, somehow, Daniel entered two to the blue, three to the orange." Wasn't he supposed to go four to the blue, five to the orange instead?


No, that was right. I took it as Daniel had seen the numbers in a sequence and assumed the first one is 1, the next 2, then 3 and so on. So if the first one then becomes '0', what was 2 becomes 1, 3 becomes 2 etc. Hope that makes sense (diagram might make more sense).

Old 1 2 3 4 5
New 0 1 2 3 4

(My shipper heart especially likes when Jack dives forward to drag Carter out from under it as it starts to sink. My hero! <g>)
QUOTE
I like it even better when he gets down on the floor to look underneath the bomb and he's definitely crowding Sam's personal space.

Yes yes yes! And then after that they are squeezed into a corner together!

I'm with you there guys! Definately a good bit cloud9.gif

Regarding Jack's flying/piloting capabilities - he must know the ropes as we see him pilot the X302 in season 5 (I think, might be 6) with Sam as co-pilot.

But I'm not military - are special ops and pilot trainng mutually exclusive?? BTW there has been talk about the badges, what are they/what do they mean? I've been wondering for a while but I just assumed it was to do with rank.

QUOTE
I'm not really clear on why Jack flies anything. He doesn't seem to grasp enough math/science for pilot training. His backstory is that he joined the USAF at 18 and was Special Ops. So I always figured that he came in through the enlisted ranks and educated himself up to officer.

I think Jack is a lot smarter than he demonstrates most of the time. He was pretty clued up on burning the missiles as thrusters in 'Tangent' even though the actual calculations had to be done back at base. And as for his route to becomming an officer *possible spoiler - highlight to read* don't we see Jack's AF Academy graduation certificate on the wall of his office in season 7 - I haven't seen it yet but there was post about it somewhere (sorry, can't remember exactly where - it was something to do with working out Jack's age from the date on the certificate).

Edit - I found that link *still possible spoiler*SG1 Archive - What is Jack's real age?

I liked this one, quite a few different stories going at once. That dude interegating Teal'c was one cooling looking freaky bad guy. I think they could have used him in another ep. And I must say Apophis was looking very stylish biggrin.gif

That great laser war at the end was the best part. With the ships firing at each other. But like always, Apophis always gets away....

He does that a lot.

I liked the scene in the cargo-ship to. With Jack flikking his watch with Carter next to him reading books. And of course when the bomb allmost blows and he pulls Carter away. I agree, very heroic of him.

And we learn a new goa'uld word: "hashak" means something like "guard".

Oh, Teal'c. What have they done to you? That torture scene was pretty nasty and graphic. While I was, of course, glad that Teal'c escaped...the manner in which he did seemed a little too easy.

However, that scene where Jack took over piloting the Tok'ra vessel in the mine field was hilarious. They cut away to show Carter, Daniel, and Jacob sweating bullets over the mine that they were reprogramming inside the ship...and then cut back to Jack trying to brush away the mine field with his arm. Great little Jack moment.

I just watched this one today. Loved it. Great acting is right Wonder. CJ really hung there for the whole filming so it would seem real. They said his shoulders were killing him afterwards. Damn I bet it hurt. Now that was method acting. I think sometimes we over look CJ to much for MS and RDA's acting.

Just watched it,Heru-Ur's face was like "Momma,Im done!" after he saw Apophis' ships there.Jack was hilarious as always,great acting from them all.
This seemed to be one of the few episodes where they didn't go through the stargate. Things are getting very cool now that Apophis has Heru-Ur's army. (This is currently the lastest episode I've seen)

What I didn't get is, if Rak'nor was Jaffa, why would he have a Tok'ra password to answer Jacob's hail? The Jaffa and Tok'ra have centuries of bad blood between them as shown in 'Allegiance', and Rak'nor wasn't exactly a peacekeeper in that episode.

Teal'c would have probably known it. He wasnt unconscious when he was in the glider so he could have told Rak'nor the password.

well its not that he forgot zero its just that ancient phoniecian culurt dint have one and it would have been added later after they where taken form eath and evolved.
I thought I was one of the best episodeds It was funny I like it when carter is under the mine and daniel tells her to touch the circle withe the cross in it then yells for her to stop right befor she touches it then says never mind all in all it was very funny great storie and I like it that it had two stories going at once. one of my favorites

It's the air force.  Even if you're not a pilot, you have to know a lot about flying.

im pretty sure only officers can fly, regular enlisted personelle cannot... it has been mentioned several times though that he is a pilot, along w/ carter. there are tons of jobs someone can choose in the airforce, very few actually involve piloting an aircraft

ok, i just scrolled through quickly, but one thing didnt make sense: raknor, and those other 2 jaffa were serpant, the kid was serpant, so why would they take their prisoner to heur'ur? they would earn far more in rewards if they take him to apophis, and heur'ur is the enemy of their god...

That is one question which would be in the nitpicking forum because I think that until later on in the seasons, they mostly just used Apophis's emblem on the jaffa.

im not gonna start a nitpick topic over an issue like that, this is a discussion over the episode, we cant be expected to just praise the episode blindly and not nitpick it some

the reason most of the jaffa were apophis sect in the early seasons was because apophis was the primary enemy

raknor even made a speech about how apophis was so great, came back from the dead to slay sokar, now commands the greatest army ever know, power to slaugher millions in an instant... he never should have given teal'c to heur'ur, it just doesnt make sense. can anyone shed some light on this, am i missing something?

Togar you do not have to start a topic over a nitpick. There is a thread there called "Mistakes they left in" for cases such as these.

Oh wow, this episode was pretty sweet. I love the whole undercover thing. I don't know if it's just me who thinks this, but wasn't that bomb relatively easy to change frequency and stuff, I mean all they had to do was turn a dial...still I guess it did need to be translated. I have to add, I think Chris Judge's acting in this episode was really good. Poor Teal'c getting tortured for what he believes in, that scene almost reminded me of the Braveheart torture scene, but in the Stargate fashion of course. This episode had a pretty sweet ending to it, if I'm not mistaken it was Heru-ur's ship that was the first to go? hmmm....well in any case an episode that's definitely worth rewatching.
