Here you can just argue out who is the best ;)

Personally i think Daniel is better because of his intelligence and mental strength :cool:

Jack all the way!!!!
Don't get me wrong I do like Daniel, he's clever, funny and is good at the diplomatic stuff he does but Jack is just so much more!!!

Jack is gorgeous, funny, witty, clever(even though he tries to hide it), caring, optimistic...and much much more!

He's funny and is obviously hiding some of his intelligence ;)

Kill the geek! And keep him dead this time.. Seriously though, O'Niell is the only character I really miss when he's gone.

I like Jack best, gotta love his humor! He's the one I miss most too when he's not on.

Umm, do I have to? For me, it really isn't a case of either/or. They are both special characters, but a major part of that is their friendship. Neither works as well without the other.

If I had to express a preference for one it would be Daniel, but a major part of what I love about him is his relationship with Jack. I can't see the show working long-term without either of them.

As much as I like Daniel as a great character on the show I'd have to choose Jack. He is much more intelligent than he really likes to reveal and sometimes so of the most 'normal' ideas in everyday use seem to be the solution that could possibly save a entire planet

Daniel all the way. Jack as he is now, is a joke. But, I'd rather have the real Jack back and see the two of them work together instead of on different planets or at cross-purposes. In the same room more often would be nice.

Daniel. Daniel. Daniel. I like men who have at least one brain cell working. Now, if Jack were the Jack of old, he'd be neck and neck with Daniel (but Daniel still ahead a bit).

I couldn't possibly choose. It may be a cop out but that's the way it is. They are so completely different from each other and both have their own characteristics that I completely love so it's impossible to pick.

Definitely Daniel, though Jack used to be alot closer than he is now. He's a genius, snarky, self-sacrificing, generous, compassionate, thinks outside the box, complex, his background is very interesting, strong without being macho, etc, etc..

For me, it would have to be Daniel! Love the man!

i have to say jack. his personality and his overall attitude is just :cool: i would never be able to resist his sarcasm and his jokes. he also cares a lot about his team and the way he handles off world things is done really well. "male bravado" as he calls it :D plus he's a lot smarter then he lets on...

i like how this is really choppy...*sigh* that's what ap essays do to you >.<

Daniel! I can't come up with anything concrete to base that answer on, other than it is 3:45 on a Friday and I have been staring at my Daniel computer wallpaper all day, and haven't gotten a darn thing done! Oops!

Teal'c. Why has no one else said Teal'c yet?

Oh.

Erm, in that case, I'd have to pick Daniel. He's the one who gets to say "Hello, we're peaceful explorers from a place called Earth". Which is what it's all about, really.

Jack! Because without Jack, Daniel wouldn't be funny.

Well, after reading ALL the posts, I have come to a very disturbing conclusion.....there is a VERY good chance that Season 9 will be the last season of SG-1. :( The vote is pretty evenly split between Jack and Daniel, but a lot of posts state that Jack is the one they miss the most when he's not there, or that it's the interplay between Jack and Daniel that make things work. Since Jack isn't going to be in Season 9.....are you "Jack" people" still going to watch?

I have to admit, my choice would be Jack, but only by a slim margin, because I truly feel it's the whole team, Sam, Daniel and Teal'c, that make the dynamic work. However, I'm more than willing to give Ben Browder a chance, because, one, I love SG-1 and want it to continue and two, I loved him in Farscape.

AND Madeleine, again, thanks for the laugh. You have a very sly sense of humor, don't you??? :rolleyes:

Oh dear, you're asking me to choose? :S

Well, Daniel, just because he's always been my favorite. But they're so completely different, dontcha know. Okay, more so in the earlier seasons, but still...having one without the other leaves an awful hole.

Still, if forced to choose...Daniel. :)

Well, I have to weigh in and say Jack of course! I will miss him when he is gone. To be a bit fair, I do like the Daniel, Jack interactions. However, it's Jack that keeps you laughin' and lookin'

I am agree with Sam on this one, but just need to add that:

Daniel has the book smarts
JAck has the World smarts

But they are a great Team together!!

but for me, ITS JACK, JACK, JACK!!

I would definatley have to say Jack. I love Daniel. But he can be a little anoying sometimes. Some people are anoyed by Jack taking his 'dumb act' too far. Well it's the same for me with Daniel's whining. Maybe Jack was 'rude and shortsighted' in The Other Side. But Daniel should have known better than to insist on having the converation in front of the people they were trying to arrange a treaty with. He's supposed to be a diplomat. I guess I'm just saying he's not always "The Smart One" Jack, after all was the one who not only took action in Redemption but he had an idea that saved the world. When even Carter, Jonas and the other egg heads were stuck. It was Jack who sacrificed himself with the ancient's database, Whose intuition told him the guy in The Warrior couldn't be trusted, Who had the idea for grabbing Adrian Conrad in 48 hours and rescued Teal'c (with significant help from Daniel the diplomat.) So I think they are equal as men. Jack is cooler. Daniel more geeky.(though his arrogance almost destroyed the galaxy when Jack trusted him in Full Circle) I really think one of the best parts of the show is Jack and Daniel playing off each other. As beings of equal intelligence. It's like the scene in the movie where They look at each other and say "I've got an idea"

I'm not sure we can sound the death knell on the show because the vote is evenly split - evenly split, not heavily lopsided in favour of Jack - on a question that offers Jack or Daniel as its only choices, and doesn't take into account those who prefer Sam or Teal'c to both Daniel and Jack (oops, hang on, we've got somebody professing to be one of those...no, wait, she's changed her mind), like Jack and Daniel equally and can't choose between them (no, hang on a minute, there are two or three of those in here), love Ben Browder and will start watching the show next season because of him (oh bother, we might have a vote here for that, too), love Claudia Black and/or Lexa Doig and will start watching the show next year because of them (Ha!), or love Beau Bridges or Lou Gossett Jr. and had never even heard of the show before they joined it (and "Ha!" again).

Season 9 could still end up being the show's last, mind you, I just wouldn't hold this little thread up as a predictor for that just yet.

For the record, Daniel's the man for me, and not by any "slim margin" or because I'm forced to choose or because Jack isn't the man he used to be. Daniel just is and always has been the runaway favourite for me.
