Looks like the first appearance of the eventually used to death 'village' set in this episode, I don't recall seeing it used before this.
Is Daniel talking faster?
So begins two seasons of having to hear the tiresome chant of "Hallowed be the Ori" on a regular basis.
I found rewatching the scene of Vala being burned lacked the intensity you'd expect because she was never allowed to be serious and be a person me as a viewer could empathise with. She's always flippant and annoying so that somehow lessened the impact of what happened to her, I didn't care about her as a character. Even with watching it for the first time it never packed the same impact as the Young /Riley scene in SGU did for me the first time I watched that, and still find hard to watch. Caring about the characters makes all the difference!
Good moments, Teal'c finding that freedom for Jaffa from the Goa'uld doesn't necessary mean freedom from self serving individuals! There's intrigue and power mongering amongst the pillars of Dakarra!
Mitchell isn't annoying me so much with this re-watch.
The Ancient's design for the communication stone base unit is wonderfully artistic, in SGU it was backward engineered to look so boringly utilitarian!
