Erm......yeah.
I got really confused by this one, first time out, and I'm still not sure which bits are dream, and which bits Daniel is actually living out.

Quite a good ep., but a little too confusing, for me.

Not just for you, for me too. I think the whoe thing was supposed to happen over the couse of Teal'c rushing in a leveling his staff weapon and T firing his staff weapon. Which is why we keep going back to the hand device and "hear me dan-ell" bit.

SeaBee
June 7th, 2004, 10:22 AM
Yeah, I think that makes the most sense.

I may have to go off, watch it again, and have another think, but that sounds about right! :D

I think that the bit at the beginning and the bit at the very end are what was actually "real".

Actually real. Something I didn't know

Well... real in the sense that it wasn't going on in the minds of one (or two?) fictional characters on a television series.

I don't see why Teal'c needed to shoot her - he could have just whacked her on the head with his staff weapon or something.

SeaBee

I think she had to die, so that Daniel would have a quest to go on, otherwise she would have been able to get the baby herself.

Ptah
September 27th, 2004, 12:50 AM
I guess so, but I just didn't find it terribly convincing that Teal'c had no choice but to shoot her, when he was close enough to incapacitate her non-fatally.

Not nearly enough time. Even if all he had to do was jump at her to sever the connection, Daniel would've been dead meat.

I liked this episode. It was kinda a good ending for Sha're, as well as another chance to go back to the first planet we visited. It was pretty good.

It would have been nice if Teal'c just zatted her and the Tok'ra could have removed the Goa'uld from her. Poor Daniel. Poor Sha're. :(

Even though this was so angsty, I still enjoyed it. It was hard at times, being a Daniel/Sha're shipper, but I can see why they needed to wrap up the Sha're storyline plus give Daniel another reason to continue with the SGC.

I believe my favorite was the beautiful funeral scene. I loved all of what Daniel said, especially: ". . . grant me a place in your blessed dwelling," "The demon is gone now and I am free of sin." Loved the whole feather on the scales. :)

I enjoyed to see how Sha're and Kasuf's perspective of the situation. Sha're in the dream saying to Daniel: "Go to sleep so you can rise tomorrow and continue your travels through the Chaapaa-aii" as well as Kasuf's concern on Daniel leaving the SGC: "Col. O'Neill tells me that you are no longer part of his tribe and will not be travelling through the Chaapaa-aii." I believe the Abydonians do want Daniel travelling among the gods and perhaps even have prayers for him.

I also like how Daniel has the utmost respect for Kasuf even though Sha're is gone. He still calls him "Good Father." In the dream Kasuf even used the term "my son" when referring to Daniel. :) Perhaps we should all use the terms Good Father/Good Mother for our in-laws. I can see the Hallmark cards now. ;)

Anyway, very sad episode, but their tragic love story had to come to an end somehow.

Yeah here is a little question about Kasuf?The Abydonians were killed,ascended when Abydos was stuck by Anubis his weapon.What about Kasuf?Did he ascend?

Daniel's_twin
November 7th, 2004, 02:31 PM
Most likely. We probably just didn't see him in "Full Circle" because they just couldn't get the actor. But it would make sense if he had the same fate as everyone else. :cool:

I think they mentioned something in the beginning in Full Circle about Kasuf leading his people to safety.

All the Abydonians ascended because they were "innocents."

They did. And I think Skaraa said ALL the Abydonians ascended, which would include Kasuf.

I have been going through my DVD's and rewatching some of my favorites and I have to admit that Forever In A Day is one of the best in the whole series. The camera work, the lighting and the editing are the best of any of the episodes. Each time I see it I'm floored by the quality of the work done on this piece. It's very, very well done.

I think this is a pretty good episode.
I actually thought Kasuf was funny- the way he just kept popping up everywhere. Like the time (I think after the funeral) when he's talking to Sha're behind the tent, and Kasuf jumps out and says 'find the boy!' or something like that.

And for the people who weren't sure about when he was dreaming, he was dreaming the whole time. The key is in the name 'forever in a day'. So much time past in his mind and his dreams when it was really only a few seconds in real time.

Yes, it was a "dream". Everything between the time Daniel dropped his gun and they showed Teal'c firing at Sha're was in Daniel's vision. :cool:

I really enjoy this episode. The first time I saw it, it took me a while to be able to get my head around it but I now think its very clever. I like the character of Sha're (obviously) and I love the way that they get to "let go" of each other in this episode.
He loves her and I think that comes across very well - often at times I felt she was forgotten in a way before this ep. The issue with Tea'lc was really touching, at first Daniel is angry, cant forgive him but by the end of the dream and the beginning of real life he realises Tea'lc has to kill her - so sad.

This episode had me saying what the hell is going on. until the end then i realized what was going on. i think this was a good episode. It seems that for a few seconds sha're was stronger than the goa'uld inside her and manipulated the hand device so daniel could see and listen to her. Also i love the scene outside where jack, sam a lot of SGC members were at war with the jaffa. it was amazing. i love seen jack and sam side to side shooting like crazy it was very exciting scene.IMO

This was a heartbreaking eppy and it had me very confused until the end.
Forever In A Day? More like Forever Confused.

I felt for Daniel oh, sha're poor, poor Sha're...well at least she'd made the path clear for...*you know who* lol.

I felt for Tea'lc though when he had to kill Sha're....

I'm the same as everyone else in that I was confused till the end and it seemed a bit of a let-down even then. The story was good and they've had episodes where you don't know what was happening till the end before, but this time by the end I didn't care. Some good acting and well thought out scenes but so annoying! :(

August 10th, 2005, 04:21 PM
Well, I think a lot of people (my mother, to name names :rolleyes: ) were getting tired of the "I have to find/save Sha're" thing. To this day, every time we watch one of the older seasons and Daniel even mentions Sha're, she rolls her eyes and says that she is so sick of hearing about Sha're this, Sha're that.
Personally, I also think they should've found some way to keep her alive but out of reach, but TPTB had other things in mind. :cool:

I don't see why Teal'c needed to shoot her - he could have just whacked her on the head with his staff weapon or something.
I know! Teal'c, buddy - seriously, you ever heard of kneecaps? And even if it was a split-second thing, it would have taken less time to bean the chick than to open the charging thingies on the staff weapon and fire.


Even though this was so angsty, I still enjoyed it. It was hard at times, being a Daniel/Sha're shipper, but I can see why they needed to wrap up the Sha're storyline plus give Daniel another reason to continue with the SGC.

Anyway, very sad episode, but their tragic love story had to come to an end somehow.
It could have ended...non-tragically. This one was a real heartbreaker for me - I had seen a couple of later episodes, but I didn't see this coming. Since Children of the Gods, the main quest of the show had been to get Skaara and Sha're back. I dunno, I kind of always assumed that that particular quest would have a happy ending. Major letdown - especially seeing the scenes that play out as if she survived. Poor Dannyboy.

I also don't really see why she had to die. The episode could have been about Daniel getting her back, then being convinced (by Kasuf, Sha're, O'Niell, et al) that he has to continue on his quest to "defeat the gods" and find the Harcesis kid. And at night, he'd have a loving brunette to come home to, and they could make lots of babies. Everybody's happy.

It was a bold move, though. It would be like having Star Trek: Voyager stop trying to reach Earth mid-season, or like having the folks on Gilligan's Island decide that they don't want to leave after all. Or like having the Baywatch girls decide that they want to join a convent. I would normally applaud such boldness, except I haven't really seen a main plot rise to replace the Sha're storyline. It just kinda peeters into the Harsesis thing. Of course, I'm only up to season four, so I'll give it time.


Also i love the scene outside where jack, sam a lot of SGC members were at war with the jaffa. it was amazing. i love seen jack and sam side to side shooting like crazy it was very exciting scene.IMO
Yeah, that rocked. I love the part where like a hundred Jaffa come pouring down the hill and Jack jumps onto the MALP that's armed with the chain gun.

Overall it was an awesome episode. I'm just a happy ending junkie, so I'm whining. :D

If Daniel was dreaming the whole time then he dreampt about the planet with the pink trees so if it's only a dream world how did they show it in season 8 where they dialed all the gates in the galaxy?

Aw what an emotional episode! So well done though. Apart from the whole Sha're dying and continuing his journey part, what really hit me was the way in which it allowed him to forgive Teal'c. Another fine example of Michael's acting skills. One question though - if he was dreaming, how come Rothman remained a member of the SGC? Was he already there but with another team? Or was he employed later by Daniel's recomendation perhaps?

cafine_us
December 1st, 2005, 02:43 PM
I think Rothman was already working at the SGC as an archaeologist, and Daniel's subconscious assumed Rothman would be his replacement should he resign.

In some future episode they do, but then lose him. I don't want to spoil it for you, but yes they do.

Off-hand I can't think of which ep it was though.

Future SG1 In S3 Maternal Instinct, Daniel finds the boy but decides to leave him under the care of the Ancient Oma Desala. They meet again in S4 Absolute Power, but again, the boy stays with Oma.

I remember watching this one, very sad, i was gutted they killed her off, why couldn't they take her to the tok'ra to get the simbiote out, just not good enough. But still a good episode, i loved the ceromony he did for her, beautiful!.

March 31st, 2006, 05:41 PM
This was on today, and I noticed a few interesting (well, to me, anyway) things. Now, I should say that I believe that everything that happened in the show was emotionally true. I mean, even if the events were a dream, they were just a way of speeding up the process of what would have happened anyway. But, funny, Daniel called Sam "Carter" when he was telling Jack he'd miss her (and pointedly omitting Teal'c). Daniel has only called Sam by her last name when he does the introductions to others offworld, and always with her full title. Otherwise, he calls her Sam. And, of course, when Daniel is asking Teal'c about harsesis, it's one of the rare times that Teal'c calls him Daniel, instead of Daniel Jackson. I wonder if they really noticed that when they wrote the episode.

Agreed. Heck Teal'c could have zatted her, and they could have taken her to the TOk'ra to get the symbiot removed.


^ Yeah I thought it would be one of those unobtainable goals most shows put in. It was such an anticlimax to the whole 'daniel finding his wife' thing! :(

Or at least have made it where he could have 'saved her' but 'Shar'ia made a choice to stand in the way of a blast ment for daniel...


I know! Teal'c, buddy - seriously, you ever heard of kneecaps? And even if it was a split-second thing, it would have taken less time to bean the chick than to open the charging thingies on the staff weapon and fire.

heck why not shoot teh darn hand the ribbon device is on??

As to me, did anyone else thing those times 'shar'ia was pulled away in his dreams, was reminicent of how ancients got pulled away when the other stepped in to stop an ascended person interfering??

Integrabyte
March 4th, 2007, 05:25 AM
Daniel almost died and you guys reckon Teal'c had time to do the maths? He chose to save Daniel's life without hesitation.

Teal'c:..... "Hmm, well I should not use my staff weapon, i should use my zat because the Tok'ra have a way of removing the symbiot and Daniel Jackson can go on to live happily ever after with Sha're".

Just saw this epsisode earlier this week for the 3rd time ever. 1st time I saw it I never really got into it, thought it was pretty boring and sad at the same time. But by everytime I see it I learn to like it more and more, and now I must say it's actually a very well done episode. Alot of emotions, sadness and good acting and writing I think. It's not that often they do these more drama eps, but this was well done. Good drama mixed with a little touch of humor by Jack, a good combo. :)

April 20th, 2007, 09:49 AM
The one thing i would like to know, is what was happening to Sharie in daniels mind, similar to what happens to ancients who do the naughty when the other ascended ones yank them away..

Chaka's_Mum
April 21st, 2007, 12:10 PM
I guess (unless I'm reading this wrong!), that Ammonet was yanking Sha're back under control every so often; then she would worm her way back out again.

Given that she was - it seems - able to hide things from Ammonet, which shows just how strong she is, Sha're's ability to use the hand device to communicate with Daniel in spite of Ammonet seems plausible. It also shows just how determined she was not to give up hope of escape.

It was such a shame that Teal'c was left with no choice but to kill her with Ammonet.

I've just watched this episode for the first time. I certainly found it powerful, if a bit confusing. I'm not annoyed that it was confusing though, for me it just adds to the impact; afterall, Daniel must have been pretty confused by all those dreams, on top of his grief.

Once again, there was great acting all round, but especially from MS and CJ. Teal'c strikes me as being a very hard character to play, because he is so strong and silent; to get his emotions accross, you have to do a lot with a little, if that makes any sense. CJ does that superbly, IMHO.

You just wait until you see "The Changeling". If you thought this was confusing, you ain't seen nothing yet!

I agree that CJ does the stoic warrior thing to perfection. It's probably the hardest job of all the characters to play him like that without making him dull or soporific.

It's a real journey - watching how Sha're educates Daniel in the merest fraction of a second to forgive Teal'c for what he is about to do. Wow, that was one strong woman. Thanks to that, she was able to communicate with her husband (after a fashion) one last time. *sniff!*

It's a shame we didn't learn more about Sha're before Apophis took her. She came accross, to me, as the devoted, obedient, meek, wife; but there was clearly so much more to her than that.

I would have liked them to have developed the 'influencing' the symbiot, when it used the ribbon device' aspect more... if she could do it, why not others.?

Chaka's_Mum
May 10th, 2007, 11:51 PM
It may be down to her upbringing - both she and Skaara have shown that they can beat the control of a symbiote. In each case it wasn't for all that long, and on one occasion at least it was down to Klorel being briefly disabled by a gunshot wound.

On that basis, this may be because Kasuf has brought them up to be strong-willed individuals. Other people may simply not have the internal strength to keep up the fight. If nothing else, they each know that someone, somewhere, wants to find and rescue them. Sometimes hope is the strongest weapon there is.

Harlan's Speechwriter
May 12th, 2007, 11:47 AM
Sha're came accross at first, to me, as a meek, obedient wife. But clearly, there was a great deal more to her than that; it's a shame we didn't get to know her better before Apophis took her. Or maybe she didn't know herself, that she had this strength, until this happened. Sometimes, adversity brings out strength people didn't know that they had.

Now THATs the way to make a Daniel episode and to wrap up a plot point AND create a new one. Heck yea that was great and emotional. Thats the way to do the baby plot to. God I miss this. Watching it again brings all the happiness and love of this show flooding back. Awesome and now The Light another quality ep.

In a sense I think this was a long time coming and even though it is sad to see her die, she was dead the moment she was taken by Amonet. I am glad she was able to say goodbye to Daniel and I think it will do Daniel good to know that Amonet isn't suffering anymore. In short I think Teal'c did the right thing and in a way I think he was relieved to be able to end the suffering of someone he had stood by and watched be taken by Amonet.

This might be the quintessential Daniel episode. The entire story took place in a few seconds while Sha’uri was scrambling his brain. We learned a lot more about Daniel’s thoughts and his relationships.

The plot was driven by two big events. Teal’c killed Sha’uri, which saved Daniel but might have prompted him to leave the stargate program. Sha’uri also told Daniel where to find her child, which gave him a reason to continue. It ended as he said goodbye to Sha’uri in a touching scene.

My favorite parts of this episode were the interactions between each team member and Daniel. Sam let her soft side out. There were a number of moments when she had tears in her eyes, and she gave Daniel a big hug. I was heartbroken when Teal’c asked Daniel for forgiveness. Jack did his best to express his repressed emotions, and it showed just how much he would have missed him.

My Rating: 8/10

I agree this was a very good episode, however the character of Sam isn't realistic. We do have to realize that it's all a part of the intermingling of the minds of Daniel, Sha'uri, and Amonet. On a slightly different note I would have to disagree with you about this being the "quintessential Daniel episode". In my opinion Meridian is the quintessential Daniel episode.

I've only seen this episode once. I am a bit confused about what happened here. I may need to re-watch again, but I am not inclined to.

Sha're died. The child was found but was sent somewhere. Daniel was hurt and angry about everything.

The only thing I'd enjoy watching again would be Jack's reaction to the new guy.

It was a good but emotional episode for Daniel.:daniel: I hated seeing him lose Sha're. She's 1 person whose among the most deserving to be saved. This was a tragedy all the way around, for Teal'c too. I know it just added to the remorse he feels for everything he did before joining the SGC:tealc:

The episode that didn't happen, in a way at least.

Like someone else said would be good to see how Daniel leaving the SGC would affect our exploration through the Stargate, or if simply if Sha're was never taken would he really of been "out there".

At least in these initial seasons it seems that like Daniel said he only really stepping through the gate with the hope that he would find Sha're and now the child. I'd like to think that even though that was a major contributor to why he joined the SGC that he also learnt the importance of his contribution to the Stargate program, SGC and SG-1 and that even in the early stages that wasn't just the only reason he stepped through the gate.

Was an interesting idea, but not my most favourite episode.

My first time watching this episode, and in my opinion, it's the best Daniel centered episode so far in the series. Lots and lots of angst, but so beautifully done.


Once again, there was great acting all round, but especially from MS and CJ. Teal'c strikes me as being a very hard character to play, because he is so strong and silent; to get his emotions accross, you have to do a lot with a little, if that makes any sense. CJ does that superbly, IMHO.

I totally agree. MS and CJ portrayed Daniel's grief and Teal'c remorse very well. Not many episodes so far have focused on the relationship between Daniel and Teal'c, so this was overdue.

I don't see why Teal'c needed to shoot her - he could have just whacked her on the head with his staff weapon or something.

Or shot her hand that had the weapon. She may lose a hand, but not her life.

I'm absolutely in the camp that Teal'c couldn't have simply shot her hand/disarmed her/etc because of the storyline. The character of Daniel needed to move beyond his looking-for-wife motivation. Initially, it was a great dynamic. But the series was popular and was extending beyond a couple seasons and they had to address it. Frankly, I'm glad they did so and didn't make it some stupid-lame-almost-death (like they did in later storylines *cough*Carson*cough*).

Anyhoo.... here's a mini-picspam. Because pics are pretty. ;)

I was confused with all those dreams too. However, after watching the episode several times, I understood. I believe that forgiveness was the message of this show. Teal'c did what he had to do to save Daniel. Daniel finally forgiving Teal'c was the best part for me. Their talk in Teal'c's quarters was sweet.

Teal'c: "Daniel Jackson, it pleases me greatly that once again, you value my knowledge."

Even though it was sad, I really enjoyed this episode. I thought it was really interesting that the whole episode, except the beginning and the end, was all in Daniel's head; and that everything was basically a dream within a dream meant to help him forgive and to tell him about the baby. It was a good end to the Sha're/Daniel arc in my opinion. It was a very cool episode and I'm in the mood to rewatch it now. :)

He just can't do it...he just can't shoot her. : ( Oh boy, this one's just so bittersweet. makes me cry. Poor Teal'c making that decision. yikes, but what a great friend! He looked like he was ready to cry when they were all standing around in the infirmary...and many other times during the episdoe. I love Teal'c so much. xoxoxoxo

Oh yeah, major confusion. I was lost beyond words the 1st time I watched. Very interesting way they decided to play it. So sad when they go to the morgue and Kasuf and Daniel finally realize the truth. I love Kasuf too, what a great guy. He was grateful and not at all angry with them.

Aww..the scene with Sam and Daniel in the infirmary was priceless. They both did such an amazing job all around. The deep emotion they exhibited in that scene was amazing.

Oh how I wish that the 'happy' little AU scenes where Sha're was alive were true. boohoo...

"You'll miss me." Nice scene b/t Daniel and Jack.

This was a great episode for "getting into Daniel's head" and getting to know his mindset. I love how Sha're took her every opportunity to try to be a "grief counselor" for Daniel. If she hadn't done what she did, there probably would have been all that trouble between Daniel and Teal'c in reality.
I'll bet it was pretty confusing after it all happened in real life...Daniel would've really wondered what was real and what wasn't!
Love the part where Daniel gets himself back on the team. The interaction is just sensational. "See...I didn't get that, but I buy it!" Love that moment. Would've liked to have seen more of the "cotton candy" planet!

what an ending. powerful and poignant.

When? I must have missed that.

Towards the end of "Hathor", she destroyed it herself by using the hand device. Sam, Janet and Teal'c had put Jack into the sarcophagus in order to heal the pouch that Hathor had given him, and just as Jack was getting out of the sarcophagus, Hathor aimed her hand device at him, hit the machine instead, and it sorta blew up. Nothing much left to be of any use.

I enjoy this episode for the emotional impact it has, but I think it's very flawed.

On a first viewing it's utterly confusing, and it's only after seeing it several times that I came to understand the only parts of it which are real are the beginning and end - although, it really makes it difficult to accept that. There are too many moments in the so called "dream" sequences which are far too solid, such as the addition of Rothman to the team, and the small moments where people are talking when Daniel isn't around (Jack and Rothman, Jack and Hammond, the moment after Daniel jumps through the gate).

Also, the episode is much too repetitive and moves at a snail's pace. We flashback to the "hear me, Daniel" moment too much. The actress who plays Sha're (can't remember how to spell her name) is particularly bad in this episode. I was never a big fan of hers, but she really doesn't do a good job here. For these reasons, I think the episode would have worked much better without her in it apart from the start/finish, and just played through with the twist at the end that the whole thing has been a dream sent by Sha're through the hand device.

The good points of the episode are that it's genuinely emotional, and there is some very heavy stuff between our characters. Daniel's eventual forgiveness of Teal'c is handled well. The fight at the start of the episode is all a bit over the top, and the big vehicle-mounted gun is kind of ridiculous. There's some pretty poor continuity in some scenes, notably on Abydos where the weather changes from dark and windy to bright sun between shots.

I really like the purple plant planet at the end, it's a great effect.

RATING: 6.5 out of 10

On re-viewing, I disliked this less than I recalled.

One part I did like was Jack dismissing Rothman--I think it makes clear that Jack is confident enough in himself to repeat the phrase Daniel used as a put down (because he was mad at Jack at the time): "Because I'm intimidated by your intelligence; where's the confusion here?" Clearly, it doesn't bother Jack at all to be surrounded by people who are more intelligent than he is.

I know, I know, this episode is all about Daniel. Yawn.

ETA: I was just reminded that this episode does make very good use of slo-mo, IMO.

Other than bringing a close to Daniel's search for Shau're and starting the Harsesis child search this episode wasn't one I enjoyed that much.

It was at this point in Stargate I noticed the fact that the SG teams can kill the Jaffa so easily now on a regular basis! The 'invincibility factor' has dropped to zero for convenience of storytelling it seems!!! Daniel facing off against two of Amunet's personal guards with just a handgun, that he was slow to reload as well!!! He was out there in the open, by rights he would have been killed, it all just seemed so easy.

Not knowing what was real and what wasn't when Daniel was recalling what Shau're communicated through the hand device, whilst a good idea was very confusing in its execution at times.

Pretty Good episode. I loved the opening of this one, the battle between Us and the Goa'uld.

So Sha're is dead and thus ends part of the arc that is early SG-1.

I noticed that one of the shirts Daniel is wearing, is the one he would wear when visiting Jack at the beginning of "Full Circle."

1. I'd forgotten just how insane that opening battle was! I could have probably taken out that Jaffa that Daniel took out with a handgun!

2. Was bummed that Sha're was dead - I hadn't thought that Daniel would quit the SGC if Sha're died...

3. The dreams were wierd though - took a while to work out what was going on.

4. First impression of Rothman...standard geek.

5. All a dream...made it a bit wierd...but still...

Decent ep.

The first few times I ever watched this episode I didn't understand the episode at all. That is why I like the episode. Its complex that makes it harder to understand. And it demostrates the dream world of making little sense. I liked seeing Daniel tackle his demons and having to find the Harcesis child. If their is one compliant its how SG1 escaped such a huge number of Jaffa warriors

dtheories
October 16th, 2011, 07:02 PM
I know there's plenty of stuff going on in this episode. I mean we have Sam picking up a whopping big gun and blowin' away a ridgeline of Jaffa; Teal'c, through Chris Judge's poignent performance, rips our hearts open even as we wish he'd ask, "Does anyone believe in knocking anymore?" The best humor is primarily from Jack and between he and Daniel, "De ja vue?" or he and Rothman to lift the sombre mood. Daniel crediting Budge should have given the dream theme away!

But, I wouldn't argue with anyone stating this ep was simply eye candy.

Won't argure that one bit. Nope.

Kasuf is seeing Sha're too. It's not Daniel's imagination. And what is Sha're's message? Find the boy. Find Keb. Keb, where Oma Dasalla is.

Seen this way, the "far too solid" sequences are perfectly normal. Daniel really did resign. Rothman really was hired, which also aligns with his later employment in the series.

This episode was written before "Maternal Instinct," and long before Oma was revealed to be an ascended ancient. Looking back, you can see it that way, but looking at it from a production point of view, that was never the case.

Upon rewatching I realized that most of the episode is a 'dream sequence' that takes place in the few seconds that Daniel is under the influence of the hand device. Only the opening and ending scences actually happen. The rest is a 'dream' caused by Sha're's attempt to communicate with Daniel through the hand device.

It seems like a lot of people are in consensus about disliking this episode.

I just watched it for the first time (because yes, I am a newbie. *shame*). I didn't catch on to the fact that the entire thing was a dream for a really, really long time. Wow. Embarassed.

Anyway. I didn't really have any problems with how it was handled, or with it being slow (possibly because I was busy thinking it wasn't a dream). But what bothered me was the whole 'find the baby' thing. It bothered me that it suddenly came out of nowhere that this baby knows everything about the Goul'd. They couldn't have mentioned that when it was born? Granted, the writers had probably not made that up yet, and the whole find the baby thing is a reason to keep Daniel on the team, now that Sha're's gone, but it just feels like a very feeble way to direct Daniel's plot in a new direction (and the show's plot in general). There's suddenly this source of all knowledge about the Gould' and they have to find it. How convenient.

Also, it was nice to actually see Sha're for more than 5 seconds. I still wish they'd developed her character more before killing her off.

Also, I could go on a long rant about how unbelievable I find it that Daniel wanted to leave the SGC, even in his dream, but I won't go into that.

Yep, I think we should rewatch this one several times but I doubt it become clearer then.
But we learn sth about the child, that's positive.

I've seen this one about three or four times and each time so far I've remembered too late that it's all a dream except for the first scene and the last.

This episode was a good way for an important character to die (well, I guess important to Daniel at least), by having it at the start of the episode it allowed some interesting interactions between Daniel and Teal'c. It's too bad that at the end they didn't include an additional scene in the SGC with Daniel/Teal'C to cement this. It would be interesting to see Daniel come to terms with it more quickly than he did in the "dream" sequence and talk a little about the child.

Never really felt this episode was confusing though.. in fact, I don't think any episode of Stargate is confusing, it's always pretty clear-cut. Except maybe certain SGU episodes with Rush where his actions were quite ambiguous IIRC.

It seemed obvious to me that Sha're was trying to communicate with Daniel through Amaunet's hand device while the viewer was sort of sifting through Daniel's mind as he struggles with the inevitable fate of his wife. So it makes sense in that "dream world" Rothman would replace Daniel in SG-1 and Jack wouldn't like him, Daniel knew Rothman and also knew what Jack's reaction to him would be. The mind is powerful like that, on a SGA rewatch I once had a dream where I met Dr McKay, he was exactly like how he is in SGA, fast talking, tech babbling, kind of goofy and in your face. My mind "recreated" his persona.

On one hand, I really, really like stories that deal with the Abydonians and Daniel and Sha're. But on the other hand, this episode is so bloody confusing. I can't fathom how they never got lost in their own story telling.

However, like I said I really love stories that deal with Abydonians and we learn more about their rituals, funerary but rituals nonetheless. We get to see Good Father Kasuf again, and of course, there's "the boy" Daniel is instructed to find and protect. It sets the stage for what is to come later in Maternal Instinct, and I think it's a great set up.

Also, that other geek we see for the first time -- Rothman. :p

One thing though that had me snorting rather loudly was when the second Horus guard comes out of the tent and advances on Daniel -- when Teal'c shoots him and the guy falls down, his staffweapon wriggles like the rubber prop it is and it had me in stitches. :p

How would you rate SG-1's "Forever In a Day?"

Excellent -- despite being confusing, I absolutely love the photography of this episode, the acting, the story and the players.

I find it laughable we were able to defeat such a big Jaffa army. This is one of those episodes that loses it appeal on future viewings. It's confusing and as such it's a mystery ofwhat is going on with Sha're and Daniel's hallucinations. Once you know what is happening, the appeal of the episode drops dramatically. But that is not really the writers fault. Based on my first watch I give this episode a good because of it weirdness

I liked this episode because it was all weird. :). Loved seeing the Abodonians, Sha're, and Rothman!

3x10 Forever in a day
Planet was reused when Daniel’s escaping. They just simply repainted the trees from 2x19 One false step.

I don't agree that the reuse of material is an error. It's economics, and the realization that Vancouver is only so big.

Well, locations have to be accessible by truck so that's also limiting the variety.

I really liked her character and I sure would have liked them to keep her around for much longer.
