    Default Daniel's Mistake

    Daniel gets the meanings right, but lists the numerical value of the Runes as 3, 14, 15, 9 but if he's going by the numerical order of the Runes, it would be 3, 14, 19, 5.

    The last two runes to get the numbers he reads would be Hagalaz (looks like an H) and Algiz (looks like an upside down peace sign without the circle)

    Anyone else catch this?

    Um.. So you're saying there is no possible way that the Asgard langange evolved over the time they left Earth?

    The numerical value of the M and R runes are 19 and 5. Just a mistake I noticed.

    The Asgard or the Cimmerians could have changed the order, and I suppose they could have told Daniel on his previous visit or they just cut the scene of Gairwyn correcting him, which would have been fun to see.

    The rune that looks like "M" actually has the phonetic value of the letter "E."
    You are right about the numerical value being 19 though. I'm thinking the mix up might have been due to the similarity in the names of the 19th rune, Ehwaz, and the 15th, which is called Eiwaz and has the phonetic value of both X and Z.

    You have a point, about the names being similar, although eihwaz has the value EI, or Y.

    I think the rune you're thinking of is algiz which does have the value of Z and X (and in Younger Futhark it was reversed and given the value of a final R)

    This is why I wrote "M" rune to prevent confusion. but obviously it didn't work out that way.

    Good revisit to the Cimmerians.Excellent visual effects,for a fairly early show.
    Cool rescue by the Asgard from Heru-ur and his invasion force.
    First use of the ribbon-device by Sam,but rather sad end for Kendra .
    Pretty good ep overall,IMO.

    "Hall of Thor's Might". (Bit ironic,given the size of the real Asgard,but I suppose it refers to the Hologram,or the superior civilisation and tech . )!

    Does anyone else find it odd that these Asgard are the powerful protectors of humanity? After all, throughout Norse mythology it was known that all of Heaven and Earth would be destroyed once the gods were defeated by the Giants.

    Yeah, the norse god´s are a funny choice for the good guys. As a rule they didn´t care much for the troubles of humans and only respected those that where warriors and died a weapons death. Not exactly the people you´d expect to promote peace

    I was wondering how Thor's Hammer would tell the difference between Teal'c and other Jaffa, since he was welcome anytime on the planet.

    Perhaps by scanning his DNA?

    I was just excited to see Thor for the first time. And it was great that Sam thought it was a recording
