This was, IMO, the weakest and worst episode for me, out of all seven series'.
The first quarter of it showed great promise. But then it went downhill from there. I do not believe that Jack would go native that soon. He would have more faith in the SGC than that.
I also wanted to see more of Sam building the supergun. One minute she's adding up numbers on a bit of paper, next she's firing the thing. I felt that too much time was spent with Jack.
The other thing I felt was that the writers ran out of ideas at the end, and the whole thing just petered out.
All in all, a disappointing ep. for me.

Yeah, I like to forget this episode happened, lol. Brief Candle to some extent as well, mostly because the writers find Jack these sappy caricatures of femininity to develop an interest in. I think he'd be bored to tears without a woman with as much of an attitude as him.

The one cool part about this ep ws coming through the gate sideways and underground so that Teal'c had to dig his way to the surface. I just thought that was a neat idea.

Saw this again last week and found myself more sympathetic towards Jack this time around. I had liked this "Jack moves on" episode but hadn't been a big fan of him in it (if that makes any sense :p), primarily because of his parting remark to Lai'ra; in particular, I had felt he had showed no appreciation for his team's devotion. However, seeing this whole episode from Jack's perspective made it somewhat less offensive.

Most of the episode followed Jack being stranded off-world and eventually, and very reluctantly, having to "fit in." An important revelation about Jack, IMHO, was that he clearly was over the most devastating loss of his life -- the death of his son. On the other hand, the simple things in life, such fishing and wood-chopping, brought him less joy than they should have, because he had no choice in the matter. When his team came through, choices became available to him and, somehow, that gave him a new appreciation for what he was about to give up. I think that's what his (paraphrase) "I am not happy to go" was all about. Yes, it would have been nice for him to stay out of the earshot of his teammates, but Jack is not exactly known for his tact. :D

The second viewing, however, still left me disappointed by Lai'ra's feet of clay, so to speak. Her momentary faltering at the end undid all the character build-up till that point. She was supposed to be this generous woman and a leader of her community. Yet, she would even entertain the possibility of leaving her people stranded offworld, all because she wanted to keep her man stranded here with her. IMHO, that's not the hallmark of a strong woman. :(

It's all purely conjecture, but for what it's worth I think that people tend to deal with personal loss in one of two ways: (1) to avoid the same type of personal ties or (2) to find an immediate replacement. Seeing that Jack did not have another child right after Charlie's death, I would say that he was probably behind Door #1.

So, if the traumatic experience of losing his son were still eating at him, he would have been more averse to Lai'ra's request than what we saw. As it was, his reluctance seemed to have more to do with the sense of duty than it did anything else. Of course, that is not to say he would stop grieving for Charlie, just that he had already put that part of his life behnd him.

I happen to think this was an ok episode. And I didn't mind Laira, she seemed like a genuinely nice and carring person, to me.

My dislike of the Pete character has little to do with my "status" as a shipper. I've listed my complaints on numerous other threads, where they are more appropriately expressed if you are at all interested.

Yes, you'll also notice that "Demons" (which there isn't any 'ship in BTW) got an 8.5 and yet if we did a poll on the Forum right now, I'd bet it would get listed as one of the 2 or 3 worst for the season. (In fact I think it did on the old forum ;)) So I wouldn't go by the fan ratings if I were you ;)

I voted this ep. as worst because it was boring. I am neither pro or anti ship, IMO, if the writers decide they get together, fine, if they don't, also fine. I just found the ep. slow. I wanted to see the science behind the supergun, and felt too much time was spent with Jack.

I never understand quite why Laira is so disliked. She seems really nice to me.

Of course it was wrong of her not to tell Jack about the radio... except, hang on, she *did* tell Jack about the radio. Of her own accord and without prompting. So what's the problem?

Liebestraume
June 24th, 2004, 07:07 PM
So what's the problem?
She still could be considered "nice," only not as admirable as all the foregoing characterization has led me to believe. Her judgment lapse reveals a selfishness -- something I dislike intensely in fictional characters -- previously unexpected by me and, by then, there isn't enough time left in the episode to salvage the character. And, if her only excuse is she loves Jack, then she certainly does not love him enough to always place his happiness before her own.

{Laira's} judgment lapse reveals a selfishness... And, if her only excuse is she loves Jack, then she certainly does not love him enough to always place his happiness before her own.

Yes, she was selfish, for a short time. She probably indulged herself for a ittle while with the idea that Jack would be happy with her, and that he didn't need to be wrenched away from his new life. Then she saw sense, and was completely selfless. She told Jack what had happened, even though she knew it would cause her pain if he left, and even though she knew that if she wanted to keep secret what she had done no one could ever know that she'd heard the radio.

And the whole point is that she *did* place his happiness before hers. She told the truth, what more could she have done? Okay, she could have come to the right decision sooner, but I think the fact that she did the right thing at a cost to herself and when there was nothing to loose and everything to gain by lying, far outweighs the fact that she didn't do all that straight away.

Sorta. Had Laira eventually placed her happiness before that of everyone else, she would not have been a good person at all. I think the whole point is that, if her "love" was pure and true, she should always place his happiness before hers. The selflessness of SG-1 -- their willingness to sacrifice without a second-thought for themselves -- seems so ubiquitous that it has become the golden standard. Given all the prior character build-up for Laira, it was ultimately disappointing to see her fail thusly.


... [Laira had] nothing to loose and everything to gain by lying, ...
She did have something to lose, for the lie would eat at her even if no one else knew. She would always wonder if Jack stayed with her only because she took away his other options, and she would have to live with the fact that her (in)action kept some families apart. That's a pretty daunting prospect for any self-respecting woman. On the other hand, there was always the possibility that Jack would choose to stay or return. That hope, along with a clear conscience, is reward enough for telling the truth. Perhaps she was not totally selfless, merely sensible.

I suppose I haven't seen SG-1 themselves as quite that perfect - Jack nearly murdered someone in rage once but was stopped by a team member; another time he killed a man out of revenge. Jonas allowed the name of the man who saved his life to be blackened, until much later he recanted, not on his own initiative but after Jack had pushed him. Teal'c is a war criminal - Hammond's words.

On the whole though, when SG-1 act they act instantly. They're the heroes and for them to spend time weighing up options would be bad television. Laira has always lived a much slower sort of life, and would by nature give more lengthy consideration to a problem before deciding on a solution.

That's the problem, IMO. SG-1 can appear to be so perfect... to me Laira is one of the few very real characters. She wrestled with her conscience for a while, and eventually came to the "right" conclusion. She couldn't know that Teal'c was risking her life - but then, having spent a lot of time with Jack she might have made a guess that they were taking a big risk (she's not stupid and she's not a spring chicken, she can work this stuff out for herself)

If she hadn't mentioned the radio, and Jack had stayed on Edora, then how would that have made her a bad person? The likelihood of them having children would have enhanced the very small gene pool. He is obviously a handy guy to have around (he didn't baulk at making his own nails to build a house) and we know that he is sensible and a good leader. That would have been good for her village, and Jack would have been able to live there.

Well, yes. That is the morally right answer. But every day all over this planet (and others) people are making that type of decision every day. And keeping quiet. And their partner never ever finds out.

Her inaction would have kept those families apart - but she had no idea if any rescue would have been successful. The village had split in two - that was its best chance for the maximum number of them to survive. Those who went through the Stargate wouldn't have known that they might some day have been able to go back: in the moment when they went through survival at that time must have been uppermost in their minds, nothing else.

I don't actually like Laira that much, but I think she is demonised and held up to an unfair standard. On a scale of one to ten my marks for this ep would probably put it among my least liked Stargate eps, but not because of Laira.

I actually really enjoyed this episode. I kind of liked seeing Jack live the quiet life and I thought the moments between himself and Leira were really genuine and heartfelt. I've lived that kind of simple life before doing feildwork in a remote area for 6 months and it is kind of enlightening. It was interesting and refreshing to see Jack experience this (as opposed to the constant action) and I think he was even beginning to appreciate it (eg. the social scene) and accept the new life.

I can understand why some people didnt like it, but for me it was a nice change of pace and indicated the versatility of the show and the character of Jack.

June 28th, 2004, 07:04 PM
That's the problem, IMO. SG-1 can appear to be so perfect... to me Laira is one of the few very real characters.I see what you mean. Each member of SG-1 may have his/her own flaws, but they all tend to be quite noble when it comes to self-sacrifice. And, honestly, I doubt anyone is saying Laira is a "bad person" -- if there has been any "demonizing," then I am blissfully unaware :). My main point has been merely that the character had a great set-up but couldn't seem to hold up in the end.


If she hadn't mentioned the radio, and Jack had stayed on Edora, then how would that have made her a bad person? The likelihood of them having children would have enhanced the very small gene pool. He is obviously a handy guy to have around (he didn't baulk at making his own nails to build a house) and we know that he is sensible and a good leader. That would have been good for her village, and Jack would have been able to live there.For starters, she would have accorded other people far less consideration than what she had bestowed upon herself. While asking for a child, she was not talking about the gene pool or any such "big picture." It was because her son would be leaving home soon, and she wanted to retain a family of her own. If the notion of home and hearth was so dear to her, why should it then be any less so to other Edorans in her estimate?

Granted it was the natural disaster that forced the relocation, and those Edorans might have to accept their condition as a permanent one. However, when an opportunity presented itself, the Edorans (and Jack) should have the right to make their own decisions as to where to stay (or how to enhance the gene pool ;)). She would be wrong to deprive them of that choice, no matter the reason.


Well, yes. That is the morally right answer. But every day all over this planet (and others) people are making that type of decision every day. And keeping quiet. And their partner never ever finds out.IMHO, a realistic characterization does not make the character's behavior any more justifiable. Real life rights-and-wrongs notwithstanding, Laira is a fictional creation and hence subject to intellectual moralizing. In the end, I found the character lacking the degree of selflessness that all her earlier virtues had indicated. Perhaps it was a high standard to meet, but it has not always been impossible for the fictional "good guys."

Madeleine
June 28th, 2004, 10:44 PM
That's true, all the 'enhancing the gene pool' and 'my (possible) baby needs a father' stuff wasn't reason enough for Laira to decide to keep Jack from the truth. It was enough to cloud and muddy her mind awhile though.

After being widowed and not finding a new life-partner for years (and in such a small community she must have resigned herself to never ever) she has now got one, and wow what a lovely feeling that must have been for her. She has dreams of wedded bliss and a new baby, and I know how heady that can be. Then the radio crackles and she can see her dream being torn apart. Her heart must have been wrenching itself within her chest, she stood to loose the dream she had been hoping for for nearly three months and had finally allowed herself to believe in. It's cruel fate.

No wonder that she delayed her action. The poor woman must have been quite numb. When you're in that much pain you don't think quite as coherently as normal, and the significance of things can be muddled. Her subconscious probably threw out all the reasons not to tell him - the gene pool argument, he's happy here why let him be uprooted again, I might have imagined it - and in her befuddled state it took her a while to straighten everthing out.

But she *did* straighten it out, and of her own accord. I still think she's selfless and lovely.

This is one of my favourite eposodes. I loved seeing a different side to Jack. I think a part of him was happy in the simpler life. His life on Earth, especially with the SGC never seems to be simple for long.
Liara finally found happiness again and, didn't want to lose it. It would be natural to hesitate before telling Jack about the radio message. The fact that she did, knowing that he might leave her shows character.
I think it shows a lot about Jack's character that he left a place he wanted to stay because he had prior commitments. If he had not made the promises about the Goul'd he did maybe he would have stayed and been happy with Laira. He gave up a lot when he left that plant.
IMHO sometimes Carter, Teal'c, and Daniel are possive of Jack. Teal'c and Carter do not like him out of thier sight sight at times. Daniel was the only one imho that understood how hard it was for him to leave. Daniel did give up everything on Earth to be with Share.
the fact that Laiara considered going with him just proved she loved him.

I still think she's selfless and lovely.It's all good, for I'd never even dream of persuading anyone to think otherwise. In response to your original question (i.e., "So what's the problem?") up thread, I offered my POV -- along with other posters' -- as well as provided the rationale. The crux of the issue has been crystallized, or so I hope, through the foregoing discussion, and it seems folks may have to agree to disagree on some stuff. :)

The one thing that made me think is Teal'c and I'm sure this has been answered before, but I foregot the answer. How was Teal'c aloud to fire a harpon gun and stick it to the so called ceiling with him holden the gun on the other side? Now that Atlantis is on

last week when the Puddlejumper was stuck in the gate, in order for it to materalize on the other side, the hole ship had to be in the gate, in order for any of the ship to come out, of the other side! So how does Teal'cs harpon gun materalize on the other side of the gate, if he should be in the gate?!!! :S

Thor's Pal
August 2nd, 2004, 09:26 PM
Because there is nonthing holding the front of the harpoon back. The harpoon is no different than all the engery blasts, flying debis, cruse missiles, grenades, canisters of knockout gass, trinium arrows, ect ect that had gone flying thought the gate.





Appeatnly, the gate need all the info encoded before it transmits to the other gate. If it is being held back by something, it can't transmits. So the rope that was attached to the harpoon did not provide enought counter force to hold the harpoon back and prevent the gate from transmitting the harpoon.

If Laira was pregnant or not, I don't think she would've told Jack. She knew he was going to go back to his world once they established radio communication. Her hopes for a future with him were dashed in that moment when she heard Sam's voice on the radio. I feel sorry for Laira. :(

She wanted a child and was going to raise the child with or without the father involved. I wished they had done a follow-up because I think Jack would've gotten a surprise. :)

I like this episode more and more every time I see it. When I first saw it I didn’t know much about the characters and thought it was a rip off of the Next Gen episode where Picard vicarously lives the family life of a man on a dying planet.

Now I really like A Hundred Days because it is so character driven. Watching Jack go though the stages of grief is fascinating.

As for Laira’s motivations. I think right away she knows she needs Jack’s help for her remaining people and his genetic involvement. She was likely not thinking in terms of “gene pool diversity” but anyone who works around animals would know that inbreeding is bad. So much of what she says can be seen in terms of securing Jack’s help for everyone in the village, not just her.

The moment where she hears the voice on the radio just about makes me cry. If it has just been about her feelings for Jack she could have just chucked the whole basket in the lake without fiddling with the radio’s buttons. She curious and probably thinking how could I use this thing.

Some people think Jack forgot about Sam too quickly. In context this epi was not long after Jolinar’s Memories and The Devil you Know. Sam must have seemed more distant than ever with the burden of those memories and connections to Martouf.

Finally, the number one reason I like this episode. When Jack makes it to Acceptance and hugs Laira it’s just about the best hug I’ve ever seen. His face lights up and she’s completely enfolded in his arms. Damn that’s a good hug.

Anyway, thems my thoughs on the matter. I found myself thinking about this epi all evening and wanted to share.

I liked this episode. Of all the eps of SG-1 I've been able to see, I sorta feel like they sometimes forget about the individual characters and who they are, and how they've evolved, in favor of some sci-fi event that is taking place at the moment.

This ep successfully had fun with both, and that makes Vapor a happy boy.

Yea, the other problem is these eps are way to similar. I was thinking i've seen this ep already i swear. He can't go back and a alien woman falls in love with him. The only thing was in Brief Candle Jack get stuck on the planet because he was romantically involved with a woman and on 100 days he is romantically involved after getting stuck. But to me they are to similar still.

I quite liked this episode. As someone mentioned, it had great character development. I enjoyed watching Jack adapt to his new surroundings.

I can't believe Sam built a particle generator/accelerator! Go Sam! It gave me new appreciation of her brilliance, as well as her resourcefullness and hard working personality. I have such respect for Sam on every level.

I also found Sam's angst at Jack's involvement with Laira very interesting. For me, it establishes beyond a doubt that Sam has significant romantic interest in Jack at this point. I'm not a true shipper yet, but I found the blatancy of Sam's reaction to the relationship emotionally powerful.

I liked Jack's line to Teal'C: " You are one stubborn son of a gun...!" It was a good episodes for Teal'C in this respect as well -- really showed his devotion to Jack and the solidarity of the team in general.

That's true, all the 'enhancing the gene pool' and 'my (possible) baby needs a father' stuff wasn't reason enough for Laira to decide to keep Jack from the truth. It was enough to cloud and muddy her mind awhile though.

After being widowed and not finding a new life-partner for years (and in such a small community she must have resigned herself to never ever) she has now got one, and wow what a lovely feeling that must have been for her. She has dreams of wedded bliss and a new baby, and I know how heady that can be. Then the radio crackles and she can see her dream being torn apart. Her heart must have been wrenching itself within her chest, she stood to loose the dream she had been hoping for for nearly three months and had finally allowed herself to believe in. It's cruel fate.

No wonder that she delayed her action. The poor woman must have been quite numb. When you're in that much pain you don't think quite as coherently as normal, and the significance of things can be muddled. Her subconscious probably threw out all the reasons not to tell him - the gene pool argument, he's happy here why let him be uprooted again, I might have imagined it - and in her befuddled state it took her a while to straighten everthing out.

But she *did* straighten it out, and of her own accord. I still think she's selfless and lovely.

There have been some really good points made about this episode, this being one that actually change my perception of Laira. The first time I watched it I thought - wow what a selfish woman - she knows he wants to go home and she's always pushing him to commit to staying. But now I can look at it and see - she didn't have to tell him about the radio - for all they knew Jack was stuck there forever. But she did - even knowing it meant she would lose him.

Teal'c is such a hero in this episode - I was amazed that he would take such a BIG risk.

i think they might have used a naquadah reactor. i wish they show more of sam building the particle bean. she is incredibly brilliant and i think they needed to show that. i didn't like that he had lost faith, i can't believe he would have lost faith in sam. he should have known that if anybody can get him is sam. they didn't show him showing appreciation for what she had done. she gave up so much yet he seem kind of ungreatful. i think it was selfish of Laira to not tell him at first but she finally came to her senses. i like that sam, teal'c and daniel didn't give up on jack. althought it was very screw up that he gave up on them.

I liked this episode very much. I think it showed the resiliancy of Jack, though it took him a while to realize that he wouldn't be returning home, and this new place would be home. He grew to care for Laira and although I did not want him remain with her, I was saddened at the end, when Teal'C rescued him. The last scene, of her, standing alone, with her hand over her belly, well, it touched me. I guess we'll never know if there is a little Jack running around there with her, or if it was just wishful thinking. :(

I liked this episode a lot. Nice change of pace and dealing with Jack resigning himself to staying there. As to Laira and the radio, I thought they did that well. Her first instinct is not to tell him, but at the meal, you could see she was agonizing over having to decieve him forever and she quickly decides she has to tell him, whatever the consequences.

I was surprised quite a few people didn't like this episode - for me, I really enjoyed it :)

This episode had an interesting perspective for Jack and was enlightening considering the possibility of not getting home and when he had pretty much given up hope of returning.

It had Great music and created a good emotional response, especially the scene where Jack is in the boat moving accross the water on his own and I also loved the music at the dance - very moving :)

Also nice to see the reuse of the idea of penatrating an "iris" and it was a good solution.

One thing I did wonder was how they got the stargate out from the bottom of the hole, but I guess they must have found a way. It was quite deep down, and they didn't have many good tools, but I guess they must have had something :)

Overall, enjoyable episode and enlightening to see it focus on points not really considered before - For example, the possibility of having to give up life and live on a new planet, and also what happens the stargate is horizontal and something falls back into the event horizon.

Don't know if anyone pops in here anymore but I wanted to post my opinion on this episode. After reading Madeleine-W's take on the actions of Laira, I would have to agree on her take of things. I totally enjoyed this episode. I found it touching that even though Jack had given up any hope in his head of ever getting home, in his heart he never gave up. Why else would he have kept all his Stargate uniforms' for so long. He had already been wearing Edorian clothing for a while so the uniform was like a security blanket of sorts.

I loved the scene where Jack was paddling down the lake and Laira meets up with him to walk back to the village together. Wonder how long she had been waiting there for. Then the desperation in helping to dig Teal'c out of the ground showed us and Laira that Edora truely wasn't where Jack belonged.

However I would like to know whether Laira was pregnant with Jack's child because the way tptb left the episode(with Laira placing a hand over her abdomen), it's anyone's guess.

Just watched this one tonight, and amazed myself by not hating it. After all, it's sort of the Antichrist for shippers. I'm a shipper. Therefore, I should be sprinting the other direction and waving cloves of garlic. Right? Evidentally not.

What was good:
a. RDA. I'd read the transcript wondering what the hell Jack was thinking by accepting his fate: since when has Jack calmly lain down and allowed fate to walk all over him, even if there's nothing he can do? RDA pulled it off. :cool:
b. AT. We didn't see much of her, but what we did see was enough of set a presence for the ep. [And I love the sort of 'I know you're flirting and you should know I can kill you six different ways before you hit the ground' look she was giving Laira at the beginning of the ep. :rolleyes: ]
c. Laira. Yeah, I know. As I said above, I was prepared to hate her, and I didn't. I don't even think she was a slut or a b!tch or anything else you care to call her. She was trying to help Jack. She didn't know about SG-1's track record of continually beating the odds twice on Sunday [and let's face it, that's something you sort of have to see to believe]. She had no reason to assume other than that he'd be stuck on her world for a long time. She was trying to be kind to him, & I don't just mean the sex. Just about the only real reason I can come up with for despising her so intensely is that she's not Sam. Fair enough for dislike, but not enough for hate.
d. Storyline. Kewl.
e. Techie stuff: editing, props, settings, SFX. Nicely done. I liked the shot of RDA walking with Laira that cut to RDA on the river. I liked the Edoran culture. And the 'fire rain' was awesome.
f. Ship...but not too shippy.
g. Teal'c. Nice to see him doing something other than give people the eyebrow, which is about all he did for the first six seasons.

What wasn't good:
a. Laira. Okay. So there's no rational reason to. I still...don't like her.

It was almost like a filler episode where it could have gone in anywhere in the first six series. There was nothing wrong with the episode although it was a bit mushy for me.(sorry) :o
Teal'c was cool and sam did her own little thing which was good. It was good but not memorable! :S

IMHO sometimes Carter, Teal'c, and Daniel are possive of Jack. Teal'c and Carter do not like him out of thier sight sight at times.
That's just because he breaks stuff if you don't watch him carefully.

This was a good idea for an episode, it was just boring and pastoral. Aside from the fire rain (am I the only one who thought that was unbelievably cool?), it's essentially an episode about Nothing. It was a well thought-out Nothing, though. Notice that Laira tells Jack that she mourned for her husband for a hundred days before letting go of him. Jack stays on the planet just a bit over three months - I'm guessing 95 days - before he's finally able to begin letting go of Earth, Carter and the SGC. Cleverly done overall.

And I actually did like Laira. She's not quite feisty enough to keep up with Jack, but she's a sweet character who seems to honestly fall for him. The fact that she hesitates with the radio is just further proof of how much she's come to care for him. It doesn't make her a bad person.

I thought it was kind of funny that Jack just sort of forgets about her, though. I can just imagine what Jack's answering machine sounds like:

BEEP
"Jack, this is Laira. Honey, why haven't you called me back? Do you need my number?"
BEEP
"Hello, Jack. It's Laira. We were going to have a feast this evening and I was wondering if you might want to join us. It's been so long since I've talked to you. I'd love to see you again..."
BEEP
"Jack? Honey, why haven't you returned any of my calls? I have something important to tell you. Jack? Are you there? Jack?"
BEEP
*sob* "Jack? Call me back, please. It's been five years...I miss you so much. Oooh, I never should have given you that radio back..." *sob*
BEEP
"Hello, darling. It's Laira. Just thought I'd let Little Jack say hello."
"Hi, Daddy! I'm in first grade now! Please come visit some day? I wanna meet you! It would be so fun to have a daddy to play catch with!"

This was, IMO, the weakest and worst episode for me, out of all seven series'.
The first quarter of it showed great promise. But then it went downhill from there. I do not believe that Jack would go native that soon. He would have more faith in the SGC than that.
I also wanted to see more of Sam building the supergun. One minute she's adding up numbers on a bit of paper, next she's firing the thing. I felt that too much time was spent with Jack.
The other thing I felt was that the writers ran out of ideas at the end, and the whole thing just petered out.
All in all, a disappointing ep. for me.
i love this episode why does so many people hate it i love it althought i really like season 3 all together just wuh there was a audio commuintary

I loved the episode.

I found Jack's "going native" to be wholly believable under such a stressful situation. Any expectation of rescue was obviously WAY off if he truly thought the gate was destroyed.

Moreover, the woman he fell for wasn't quite chopped liver either. All in all, a good Jack episode, the only Stargate romance that ever worked for me in the least (though I'm sure all the various conventional 'shippy types hissed the whole time) and I for one always held out hope that that really WAS where Jack would go when he retired.

this episode is ok but not one of my personal faves. I mean it is quite predictable what happens and after accepting his fate jack leaves his new women with a basic ill be back. That never happens he never returns to visit edora which is a shame. Perhaps the Orii may come for a little visit.

Just saw it again this evening, and as far as I am concerned Jack should STILL have retired to live with Laira. He had chemistry with her. This Carter thing is just one of those meaningless co-worker infatuations that never works out.

dude its indestructable...this episode was a POS a big fat steeming one....oh an asteroid hit the gate so I am gonna give up and surrender... psh no way he would have stopped diggin I dont wanna live on some dumb planEt bonin that woman. . as oppose to exploring the universe. . what were the writers thinkin..this was terrible ohh this is number one on my least favorite episodes I have nothing good to ay about this....expect I guess they can get that naquadah from them tho...it literally rains naquadah....god IHATE THIS EPISODE

100 Days is one of my all-time fav eps. :)

Jack didn't give up. Remember the scene where he's digging in the huge - enourmous - gully-sized crater that hid the Gate? It could've been pushed hundreds of feet away from its original site, and Jack had no way of knowing where to locate it. Did you notice how deeply the Gate was buried, about one and a half times the length of a kawoosh? And that Teal'c(who really should've been wearing a hard hat. tsk )had to use drilling tools because there was a layer of hardened molten material to get through? Jack was one man, with a hand shovel!

As for Jack choosing between a quiet life and exploring the galaxy, Jack has shown that he'd take the quiet life. He goes out in the galaxy only because of a sense of duty, not to explore it or for thrill-seeking.(COTG, 2010, all the fishing vacations he takes, how he rolls his eyes at new discoveries that excite Sam or Daniel, etc.)

If Jack did eventually stop digging it was because of his sense of duty towards his immediate fellow's well-being. The survivors needed all the hands they could get for rebuilding and planting/harvesting before winter set in.

As to the Laira/Jack story, I thought that it was intelligently done and dignified both characters and I wouldn't have had Laira act any other way than she had.

Sure, it's easy to say that if you love someone you'll let them go, but romantic love is naturally selfish, and, IMO, only a total Mary Sue would have rushed breathlessly into the arms of her lover to say, "I think your friends have come back to take you away from me."

Teal'c never took proper safety precautions, did he? He always thought his symbiote would save him, and I thought he looked crazy in episodes such as Singularity where he's just running around the planet without any protection. :tealcanime49:

I wish I could have every person who posted in this thread state their age and marital status. The level of innocence about what a good and real woman is like is somewhat astonishing.

Laira is a superb and full realization of a real and good woman. She is practical, knows what she wants and has a big heart that deserves a mate. She sees Jack and shortly after meeting him and even before the disaster, has an idea of what she wants from him. But she doesn't manipulate him. She is patient. She welcomes him into her home, defends him from those who would reject him and waits for her moment. She waits a long time and comes to love Jack even though the thing she wants from him is happening very slowly

She is the kind of strong woman you can build a world around. Nature intends for women to want children and when a woman is that beautiful, has that big a heart and that much wisdom, you have to admire her maturity and strength in not just taking a frontal approach.... like

"Don't you waaannttt me?!" which would be a typical modern "girl" approach...

I thought she was magnificent.

A great episode and a great portrayal of a real woman.

I've just seen this episode for the first time. I'm not really sure about it yet. I like the situation with the meteors, in fact, I'd been wondering if something like this was going to be covered in any of the episodes.

Jack's reaction to being stranded was different to that which I had expected, as was Laira's to losing her people; she seemed more concerned with Jack.

I think that this is an episode that takes some re-watching to fully appreaciate all the different levels.

That bugged me. Leaving aside for the moment that she knew how much Jack missed his home and his family and that she had no possible right to withhold the information that his people had been able to make contact, what about her own people?

About two-thirds of the village's population had gone through the stargate. Did it not occur to her that both they and Jack deserved the right to decide whether or not they wanted to return to their respective homes.

Who was she to take that right away from them?

I can't watch this one. I have tried on more than one occasion, I simply can't do it. It is so BORING to me! I am not a shipper or non-shipper, I don't really care one way or the other who gets together with whom, I just don't like whole episodes centered around romantic relationships. I want to see action, humour, great team interaction and MAYBE a LITTLE romance. It also doesn't help that I live for each second that Daniel is on-screen. An episode like this where he is barely seen (and has basically NO reaction to getting Jack back?) Not going to be one I get excited about. Instead, when this one comes on cable, I fast forward through it to remind myself why this DVD sits and collects dust!

Besides "Abyss" the best episode of Stargate SG1 overall.

Everytime I watch this episode I love it. I`ve never been a J/S-Shipper so I don`t care what people are moarning about the fact that Jack finds a woman that really fits him.

Honestly, this is the only episode of Stargate that ever made me cry. Usually it takes quite a lot to make me cry about something on screen but this episode does the job over and over again.

Generally I like those calm episodes of stargate, if they are done properly. I love the score, I love the location, I love the characters, hell there`s nothing I don`t love about this episode. It focuses my favorite character in a lovely heartbreaking story. There isn`t another opportunity for me than to call this one the best episode of all series of Stargate. (Besides Abyss)

I just re-watched the episode for the n-th time.

I really liked how it focused on character development, especially the way Jack and Teal'c gained some "weight". And I also think that the change of pace now and then is what made Stargate SG1 such a great series.


...but each time I see Teal'c hanging in that cave, buried under God-knows how much rock and stone, I can't help myself but think: "Hey, why didn't they just send a damn bomb through the gate to make the cave a bit larger in order to give the big guy a way to dial out without disintegrating himself?"

Really a great episode, it's great how far Teal'c will go for his friends. I remember when I first watched this episode, I got goosebumps when Jack was digging through the dirt and finally found Teal'c. I don't understand how everything went back to normal so soon after the meteor shower. You would think that dust would be in the air and the rivers would be toxic for quite some time especially seeing as how the planet is covered with Naquada.

ok. Got a scientific question here. How in the hell did Teal'C shoot a rope through stargate? I mean it had 2 get extended all the way through the wormhole. It cannot just connect between two points and wormhole cannot be an extender as such. So how did he manage that?

Well, it's been established that the velocity an object or person enters on one side of a wormhole is the same velocity that that object or person exits the wormhole on the other side.

Now I can't remember how exactly they shot the rope through the Stargate in this episode, but if they shot it extremely fast through the wormhole, it could get relatively far on the other side of the wormhole.

I hope that makes sense.

How far it gets is not my question. I agree by using the rope gun, it will go far. However, how the rope went through the wormhole is my question. Teal'C didn't go in with the rope. He was in SGC and shot the gun which took the Rope to the other end. Now the rope has to extend through the wormhole to be connected between both sides of the gate. According to wormhole physics, the particles will be broken and re-materialized on the other side to form the object again. So the rope cannot be connected through the wormhole.

Hope I made sense now.

You're saying that anything going through a wormhole can't exist at both ends of that wormhole at once.

Love this episode. Trapped Jack again. I love it when Jack is angsting. Teal'c once again proved how good a friend he is. I also love the fx of the meteor showers. I also wonder why the planet looks very much okay even after beeing bombarded. I don't get wormhole physics so I have no comment on it. I wonder if Laira got pregnant? If she did, would Jack still have left?

I would disagree with most of the negative comments about the episode. I really liked it for some reason. I enjoyed that it wasn't any quick fix, that it took time to rescue Jack and I loved all the little moments the signaled Sam's feelings for Jack, especially the ending with her looking on as Jack said goodbye to Lara.

It is quite the moment. She is collecting the artifacts of the now to be past. The man I love will now live with me and be my love. The people I have known and loved are gone. Then she hears a voice. She has a choice. How do I love him? How do I love them? Can I live with him knowing I made this choice for him? Can I live with myself? This very same choice is made in "Executive Suite" ca 1954 by June Allyson. Is this a coincidence? One wonders about the writers.

I always really enjoyed this episode; in fact in some ways I feel it is one of the finer standalones. It was rare that we got to see any other side of Jack in the series and I thought there was very good chemistry between he and Michelle Green. I found many of her actions highly believable. Under emotional stress, people will often make decisions that they regret, and to her credit, she fessed up.

What I actually felt needs to be resolved to this day is the matter of Jack's child with Michelle. That could be the plot to a whole new movie if they so desired. Certainly by Season 10 you would have to believe they most of thought of each other at least on occasion! And they left the gate co-ordinates with the village, so at some point you would have to think she would want Jack to meet his child.

I get the whole plot-line of Jack "moving on" with his life and then the whiplash of having your old life come back just when you'd accepted this other thing. But...

#1 - Jack, didn't you think Sam would figure something out? Maybe she'd call her dad and have his Tok'ra buddies pick you up or something?
#2 - 100 days? Pfft. Sam/Jack shippers have been waiting 100 years. Sam deserves better.

Don't hate me for that last comment, it's just the episode talking... ;)

i like this episode and agree with the 7.49 rating that we fans have given it.

there is a technical issue that has always bothered me.

would the battery in jack's radio have lasted for almost 3 1/2 months? apparently it had been turned off at some point but i suspect he left it on 24/7 for many days(if it lasted that long) when he first became stranded.

i have a couple of 2 way radios and the batteries last about 24 hours, at the most, in receive mode and much less when used for both transmit and receive.

one of my annoying points in this episode is most likely just a continuity error/not a rule yet applied in the show.

But Teal'c fires the grappling hook through the worm hole, and the cable is still on his side. By the shows laws of stargate travel it'd never of materialized, as the entire object was not all the way through.

Also the malp in the beginning revealed no telemetry as the gate was buried, so it had nothing to show. Yet if that occured, surely the gate wouldn't of dialed as the earth covering in/inside the ring would of acted as a barrier, stopping it working.

Still, a good episode!

Loved this episode, as it was the "asteroid" near end of earth kind of apocolypse and the fact that I realize that our beloved Carter, is "in love" with Jack. I admit I only purchased season 3 & 4 and not the earlier first two seasons, so I'm just starting to pick on that.

I think the episode had it's good and it's bad point - mainly it's bad point was the way it ended it so quickly - they had me focused on the storyline but they quickly wrapped it up out of no where- I know there is certain time limit on hourly episodes, but quick wrap up just didn't satisfy it. And what was with the relationship that Jack had with that woman? That wasn't made clearly at the beginning either, only in the middle when they were a "couple" or (rather she insisted upon it).

What I don't get is - how on earth the star gate portal still survived when it was "destroyed?" To me, that to have it in the earth's surface was a quick fix and one that remains illogical - by all means IT should have been destroyed when the asteroid (or comet) when it was hit.

Just watched this ep again, and it is still one I enjoy. Reading on here I see a lot of people didn't like it though. I think everyone likes to forget that Jack would much rather be at peace then at war. He doesn't step through the gate for himself so much as for the world. He is a very black and white character. Plus, 100 days is no short time. I am in the service ahd have been deployed well past the 100 day mark. Moving on is, to some extent, a must. That doesn't mean you don't miss the life you had or the people that were in it. It just means you have to adapt and change to make the best of what you have. I think that is what he did. He didn't give up hope, but he accepted that this was his life now. On a side note, I think it would have been pretty cool if his alien chick had got pregnant by him and he had another kid he didn't know about. That surely could have gone somewhere.

I only started watching Stargate of any kind about two weeks ago. I have always known that the stargate franchise had developed into something quite big, but when it was new I just couldn't cope with Richard Dean Anderson in a sci-fi setting, MacGyver was still a recent memory and I just couldn't take him seriously.

But now its 2011 and that's all ancient history, so I got a hold of the Stargate movie, then started on the Stargate TV show.

One of the things about RDA's performance in Stargate is that the writers have tried to keep the character close to the kind of guy Kurt Russell played in the original movie - sarcastic, facetious, always ready with a dumb joke about whatever calamity they are involved in at the moment.

So quite often I think he's being too flippant and not treating the other characters properly, but I then remember that he's being the guy that Kurt Russell first played on the big screen. This works pretty well in most episodes, but in 'A Hundred Days' they really needed a different type of performance and he couldn't do it justice.

I think it's pretty clear that the Stargate writers were trying to produce an episode with a similar vibe and emotional payload as 'Inner Light' from Star Trek, Next Generation.

Many people vote this as the best TNG episode of all time, and Patrick Stewart's acting is what elevates the show above average into the sublime. The story has some similar elements, including the leader who gets stuck in an impossible situation and can't get back to his team, and has to face up to a life spent in new surroundings, where he has to rebuild relationships and a career.

Patrick Stewart delivers a pitcvh-perfect performance, and it clear when watching this episode in Stargate that RDA just can't do the storyline justice. In some ways I think the casual, sarcastic nature of O'Neill is problematic because the characterisation as I desribed at the start of this rant, just isn't drawn deep enough to show the kind of emotion needed for this role.

But I think the bulk of the problem is that RDA just isn't a good enough actor. That will probably drive some fans to hunt me down or something, but that's just how I see it.

I actually found both this and the ST;TNG episode pretty boring - I'm much more of an action fan anyway. But it's a further testament to the strength of Stewart's performance that I can easily watch 'Inner Light' a couple of times a year and never get bored like I would with any other 'thinking' episode.

I find this one a little dull, but it's a rather lovely piece at the same time. What really lets it down for me is the ending being wrapped up so quick. After the months Jack has spent stuck on the planet, he appears to be settling in and has made the transition into accepting the fact that he probably won't be going back to Earth.

At the end of the episode, he has a huge turn around. He's suddenly ready to just go on home, says bye, and I'll pop back for some diplomatic stuff. It doesn't sit right. There was an opportunity for him to come back and visit as much as he wanted, and even carry on the relationship with Laira if he really wanted to. He's only a gate trip away.

So, the fact that the episode was never followed up (and only real ever referred to in a throwaway line in the next episode) makes me feel like even the writers/producers didn't care about the outcome, and the episode has little value. It still has some charm going for it, though.

RATING: 6 out of 10

I like this episode for the lovely idyllic vision of life it gives before the storm! Jack getting stranded on a planet with no hope of getting home. His sense of loss and helplessness really comes across and I've always felt for Jack here. It was interesting to see how torn Jack was, between the life he led with the SGC and a deep down need to have a simple family life.

This is where we find out that Sam cares for him more than she should, Janet picks up on it quickly. Sam builds a particle generator from scratch so she can save Jack, now that's devotion!!!

You all get to see the lovely scenery of the area where I live in this episode! :D

I completely agree. Jack said he would come back, and although it was never shown, I believe he did go back. Had she had a child, he would have made sure he was a significant part of that child's life.

5pm and another ep of SG1...

1. Fire rain nice...fire rain coming down...not so nice.

2. Fire rain destroying gate...not nice at all.

3. This is the first ep I've Rewatched where I've seen ship(particularly the Sam-Janet scene), but first time around, all I saw was the concern of a close friend and the annoyance that said friend was seemingly not recognising Sam's efforts. As in "did you really think we'd give up on you?"

4. Laira....hmm...she was a bit opportunistic and possibly nudged Jack into giving up on his old life initially but...well, I've been told not to analyse love so whatever she was thinking, she probably wasn't thinking straight.

5. As for Jack...I suspect his own feeling possibly caught him off guard...going from "might as well help these folks out" to "might as well settle down here" even though he knew that part of him would never settle. I remember reading a fanfic once where his thoughts at one moment were described as "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade, except this would be the sourest, bitterest lemonade he's ever drunk".

OK ep.

I know the writers said she was not pregnant. But I got the impression that that whole bit with her touching her stomach, was just a wistful moment for her. It was a what could have been moment for her and Jack, a family. But it was walking away and all she could do was touch her stomach and watch him walk away wishing but knowing it could never be. At least I think that is what they wanted to convey.

She believed completely that Jack would be there forever. She could not envision that the gate would work again, so in her love, she was trying to help him get over his grief. Having gone through the grieving process herself recently, she was trying to help. I wouldn't call that opportunistic.

My problem with Lara stems from two things. 1) she didn't give Jack the 100 days she herself had mourned her husband (yes, I know, their situation with the harvest etc. was urgent, but it was still hypocritical in my opinion and b) she didn't want the whole man (viz her statement "that's not the part I want.")

On the other hand, I think she was a good leader for her people who did what needed to be done.

Come on. Laira was in love and believed Jack couldn't return to Earth. I see nothing wrong with anything she did.

I don't even fault her for hesitating before telling Jack about the radio. She did the right thing, knowing that doing so could tear her life asunder.

Edit: Just finished watching the episode...

There's category of SG-1 episodes that might be called, "Culture of the Week" or "Let's Visit a World and Hang Out with the Natives." Of those episodes, "A Hundred Days" is one of the best. Laira is the reason. She's a kind, strong (but not invulnerable) woman Her relationship with Jack strikes me as believable & genuine. A touching story, well executed.

Compared to ALL SG-1 episodes, I rate this as a little better than average. (Which tells you something about my opinion of "culture of the week" episodes.)

I think she was very manipulative. They hardly knew each other and she was already trying to seduce him and took advantage of him when he was drunk. Come on, trying to get pregnant from a guy you've known for just three months? That's desperate and sad. And kind of sick too, considering the issues Jack was having. She barely knew him and didn't even try to get to know him, because that was "not the part" she wanted.

Spend every day with someone you're in love with, for three whole months, and not sleep with him? To me, that's remarkable restraint. ;)

A 40-minute episode can't show you everything. Much must be implied through a series of short vignettes. I felt the show's makers did this quite well. I got the sense that Laira tried and succeeded in getting to know Jack, as they lived and worked side-by-side, day after day. The celebration where Jack got drunk is meant to demonstrate that he's been accepted as a member of the community. Laira made her move that night, not because Jack was drinking, but because Jack, too, had finally reached an acceptance of his new life.

BTW, fems, I don't think you're correctly understanding the meaning of the exchange in which Laira says, "that's not the part I want."

I have always liked this episode just for Jack calling Teal'c a stubborn....oh wait I can't stay that on GW:P

No I like this one for the long term aspects. We have seen SG1 team members stranded on planets before but for an extended period of time. So I like seeing how Jack adjusts to his new life. I think its only natural when stuck on a planet for months that he moves on and begins settling into a new life. On the other side its an interesting to see how just basic difference of having resources (something Jack lacks) that the SGC doesn't give up hope of being reunitied. So I like it for the extreme character analysis of Jack of him adjusting and get accustomed to new people.

As for the thing people think Lara was pregenant at the end. I think that is looking into something that really isn't there

"Please don't suck the fun out of this."
If Jack only knew it would be Carter's genius and understanding of wormhole physics that would save his bacon, maybe he'd go a little easier on her!
He's not as obvious in his rejection of Carter as he is toward Laira, but it's soooooo apparent that he realizes Laira's taken a shine to him and wants no part of her even before the Fire Rain causes them to sit it out in the caves.
And when he does begin to care, it's almost as though she's a consolation prize. This SO was not in the job description!
And I agree with Seaboe that Laira is a strong leader, but also with Fems that she's manipulative. The way she handles even the elders of her clan brooks no argument. She's single-minded and very persuasive, as seen after the dance when she must sense Jack's avoidance of her. But, she's also thinking of the future of her people, so I can't dismiss her actions as simply selfish or even, at a stretch, altruistic in consideration of Jack's apparent loss of the life he knew due to her son's actions.
Daniel getting "it faster than Sam at the end shows how single-minded she can be as well.

Painful ep for me.

* Can't believe Jack would believe so quickly (yes...I think that 3 months was a little soon for him to accept that he was never getting home) that his team would give up on getting him home. I understand that Jack knows that the military has no way of knowing if he survived asteroids, and that they will eventually declare him MIA or KIA, but I think he gave up a little fast.

* Loved the Janet/Sam conversation about Sam missing Jack and her concentrated efforts to get him home.

* I don't like how easily/quickly Jack broke with Laira to leave once the team got there (even though I don't care for the Laira/Jack story arc) -it seems a bit of a Jack O'Neill character assaination.

* The pained expression on Carter's face at the end of the ep tears at my heart every time.

I agree; Jack should have known it wasn't just about him. Perhaps if it was, the military would have declared him MIA/KIA and wouldn't have bothered with Sam's machine, but it wasn't; there were still people from Edora on Earth and they needed to get home as well. Bringing those aliens back to their planet would make Earth look good when they continue their negotiations (for whatever it was they were negotiating about in the first place).

Jack got trapped on a planet for 3 months, and Teal'c saved his butt (with help from Sam)

Actually, it was Sam who "saved his butt", with help from Teal'c. :) Without the technology that Sam invented/helped build, Teal'c would not have been able to get to Jack. Teal'c did some heavy duty digging. Sam spent 3 months inventing and helping to build the machine that dug out the cavern that Teal'c was able to gate to. Teal'c spent (at most) four hours digging his way to the surface and then Jack helped with the rest of the digging. :)

So this means that there was no other gating for Daniel, Sam and Teal'c for a period of three months? I remember once Jacob Carter asked Sam how often they gated, and she said once or twice a week. Given the experiential overload of gating altogether, I can't imagine a human able to process so much even if only gating once or twice a week.

Teal'c was probably on loan to other SG teams, sparring with others in the gym and/or training recruits in lok'nel/bashaak. Daniel was most likely helping out as a linguist/archaeologist/anthropologist, cataloging artifacts and doing research in his lab.

Sam seemed to be solely working on the particle beam accelerator to make sure they could get Jack and the stranded Edorans back to where they belong.

Well, for Sam, it is highly unlikely that she did anything else besides work on the particle accelerator for 3 months. Daniel and Teal'c, however, might have been loaned out to other teams during the same period of time, since I doubt very much the U.S. Military would be willing to "waste" their abilities by keeping them on base while Sam was otherwise busy. Daniel and Teal'c have both been loaned out to other teams on occasion, and I think Sam may have also been in later episodes.

The quote from Jacob Carter was said in Season 2 ("The Tok'ra), I believe. At that time, they were still finding out just how many places they could go to. In later years, it is conceivable that they were going through the gate more frequently than once or twice a week.

Though I do have to wonder what sort of damage was being done to human bodies who went through the gate as often as those people did over the course of 8-10 years.

Funny how life imitates art. Now that we've seen the real thing, the effects in this ep are kind of... hate to say it... lame. Sorry!

They kind of botched the scale of the impacts. They seem like they're all impacting way too close to the village not to have blown them all to bits, even if only by the shock wave.

They also made the rookie mistake of not delaying the sound and camera shake to imply that the impacts were happening some distance away. You should see the impact/explosion first and hear it a few seconds later, like lightning and thunder.

One of the characters mentioning seeing a house destroyed. I find it hard to believe one could witness something like that and survive, being that close to it.

I know they made this show a long time ago and had no real world reference, like we do now, so i'll cut them some slack.

No real-world referents? Meteors have been hitting Earth since the dawn of time. They had plenty of real-world material to work with, but went with what would grab the viewers rather than what would have jibed completely with science.

Edora - nice name for a planet... too bad they pass through and asteroid belt every so often. And every 150 years or so, some of them even make it down to the planet...

Okay... we established that. And then one has to hit the space where the stargate stands and Jack gets left behind.

Laira's a bit of an annoying woman but there are worse ways to be stuck on a planet, I guess. Jack seemed to like her.

Sam works day and night to fix the problem, and when they rescue the colonel she totally seems to forget he just spent 3 months off-world without any hope of returning home. Very considerate of you, Carter. :S

The repeating music on Edora reminds me of a classic RPG (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Role-playing_game) town because it is so peaceful and rather simple. The village could go on for a hundred days without changing.

I'm with the old man who opposed the team and especially the young guy, because the Colonel wants them to follow as if they didn't have minds of their own. That's expected because he's a "main character" and the Edorans are not. But I still don't wish this to so. The military goes to all these worlds and always takes charge.

Funny how the old man began to trust the Colonel after they had consumed alcohol together. :tealc:

I just randomly watched this episode since I forgot what it was about.

I honestly didn't mind it that much. I think Jack did fall for her, which makes sense since he was there for 3 months. It was interesting to see the contrast between his stressful life at the sgc and a simple life there. I also agree with what people said on her (years ago lol) that Sg-1 forgot that Jack has been living with these people and will miss them.

I also couldn't help but wonder if after there people return (who had been on Earth for 3 months) if life on that planet starts to change. I can see the children that went through the gate and saw what life was like on Earth wanting to have the technology too. And it altmently being the start of further development and the loss of the simple farming life.

I think that they would have been sent to another planet too. It would be a lot easier on the Edorans to continue with their lives much as they had done. They could offer them assistance with temporary housing, and seeds and animals so they could continue to be self sufficient. This makes more sense too since they were avidly looking for a way to get Jack back, and as a result the refugees back to their families and friends. Changing their lives too much would have made returning more difficult for them and caused issues for the Edorans too with trying to come to terms with a totally different way of life.

I had to do a double take to see that he went to Edora as it looked completely different. I guess they must have moved the gate out of the meteor crater and re-positioned it in a nice park, amazing that there was a place like that left after the decimation caused by the meteor strikes!

This is not a particularly memorable episode or the kind you'd want to rewatch too often. It's an okay story -- nothing wrong with it, not on the story-level at least.

I like the tranquility of Edora, minus the fire rain obviously which sorta gets in the way every 150 years. If the kid hadn't run off with his girlfriend, the episode would have been finished halfway through. :p

O'Neill gets stuck -- Carter works her butt off to get him back and then expects him to be thanking her tenfold for saving him. At least Daniel seemed to get it. Carter was totally oblivious. I seriously hate that they did that to the character (I blame TPTW's infatuation with Sam/Jack).

Anyway... like I said, not a bad episode. Decent and entertaining for 42 minutes.

I read the script, but there are no secrets hidden within. A few omitted scenes, but those scenes are no longer there, only the numbers. The sexual tension between Laira and Jack is written in the script from page 1. Garan's a boy of 12-13 years old in the script but in the episode he seems closer to adulthood instead.

And I was understating the autographs since I forgot that the previous owner also had it signed before he sold it to me, so there are a few more autographs on it than I mentioned: RDA, AT, MS, CJ, Peter Deluise, Michael Greenburg and Martin Wood.

Son/Daughter - I would guess son for the dramatic element... in movies/shows the odds of her being pregnant is extremely high - she asked him for a child, they have sex and she clearly is thinking/hoping there is a child in there now - I'm picking out baby gifts ;)

Not me. I've never thought she was actually pregnant.

I liked the episode for it's calm, nature views and all.
I liked the astronomy bit and realism (except the non-delay meteor explosion sound..)
I liked Laira too.

But wow is this stupid cavity stunt a plot hole.

Everybody knows sgc would have sent some tnt and reopen he gate has many times as needed to consume the crumpling ground above it until they see the sky (with a few cheap disposable rc drones carying the camera and ready to detonate charge, if not surfacing yet).

People outside would have noticed the underground work and stayed away (or even be warned by radio).
No need to risk anyones life.

That would have defeated Teal'c's heroic sacrifice should he have perished, to get back to their great leader O'Neill.

:p

So yeah, one could say they would have used explosives or something that detonates on timer but perhaps they didn't want to risk damaging the gate so it could go either way, I guess.
