    Good ep!
    1. Obviously...
    2. Agreed
    3. Loved that quote.
    4. ...But Teal'c is awesome...
    5. And Skaara's smile is back as well... The removal of Klorel from both Skaara, and the planet, to an unknown destination at the time, leaves/left it open for his return...

    I was just glad to see the Nox and Tollan again. So often, we meet promising people and never see them again. (I'm bummed we didn't see a continuing partnership with the Orbonn, the ones who use the nanites in their brains.) It's wonderful to see Lya, and even though Narim is kinda weird, I like the Tollan, too.

    Sharing Tollan technology destroyed two whole worlds and changed Tollan society to its core. I can forgive their refusal to share again. Also, Tollans like Narim and Omac eventually suffer greatly to protect Earth. This knowledge helps me forgive their smug attitude. They're not trying to condenscend. Nor are they alone in seeming arrogant to us. Tok'ra anyone? Anyway, the Tollan are okay IMHO.

    I like this episode not only did we see the Tollan and the Nox, but also Skaara. The only thing I don't like about this episode is Narim he gives me the creeps.

    Chiming in slightly late with...

    I LOL'ed at how the Jaffa kept marching around in a serious-looking way even though they didn't have anything to do. (I guess it turned out they were doing something, but they didn't have to be walking like that to do it...) On the other hand I'm not sure what else I could picture them doing.

    lol... I think that's their casual walk. That's how they roll...

    Truly creepy. Never once did he appear in SGA without me thinking, how strange that Dr. Weir married Narim. Bad casting.

    Still sad about that, to this day. I love SG-1 but it could have been greatly improved with better use of strong elements like the Nox, Tollan, the Skaara character, etc. They just got really obsessed with the Tokra and Asgard and focused exclusively on those two, to the exclusion of everything else. The early seasons of SG-1 had this mysterious sense of wonderment about these varied races, their history, and our place in the universe. The Nox alone could have provided so much fascinating material.

    No matter what they left out (and they had to leave out something, unless they wanted the show to run 24/7), someone would be disappointed. Them's the breaks.

    Return of the Tollan!

    Thoughts:
    -SKAARA! So nice to see him out of the clutches of Klorel!
    -Lya's back! *more cheering*
    -Jack trying to sound smart is a total riot. He'd make a horrible lawyer.
    -Zipacna (sp?) is nasty. He's so slimy and sleazy...just like the snake in his head.

    Good episode, but kind of slow in parts. The ending had a nice twist. WTG Lya!

    That actor who played Zipanaca seemed like many lawyers we see advertising their wares on TV.. SLIMY as heck.. Though he also seemed familiar, from elsewhere..Just can't picture where yet.

    Love the Nox. Love the Tollan. Love Love Love Zippy. Totally.
    Teal'c rocked. Skara, love him. Even though he sounds like a dalek (his name)

    that's it. Such a shame that we didn't ever get any more nox.

    ETA: and how great are the Goa'uld stamping around just like Vogons? I keep expecting them to break out the poetry.

    The Nox still give me happy, fuzzy feelings. They're so cute.

    The Tollans should be smacked upside the head, but I guess Zippie took care of that by taking out all their cannons, except for the one Teal'c hid away. Okay, the Tollan have a point about sharing their technology but come on... a little less arrogance goes a long way.

    They built heir own stargate -- way smarter indeed. But arrogant nonetheless.

    I'd forgotten what this episode was about so I didn't this was the one where Ska'ra comes back. I really liked that.

    Lord Zipacna -- he's just one of those funky-looking goa'uld. Zippie.

    SG1 doesn't give tech lesser worlds why should the Tollans. Loved seeing the nox also.

    True, we have not been shown to give some goodies to lesser planets, but some we have.. specially medicine.
