Ahhhhh...The Other Guys. This is one of the episodes that you love or hate. I love it. The idea of these lame scientists trying to save SG-1 is hilarious and the results even more so.

Khonsu looked very cool I thought. He had an incredible voice and looked somewhat evil, lol. Shame he got a staff blast to the face....

This was also a confusing episode as it wasn't made clear if it was all a dream or not. Has there been any clarification that all of it was real apart from end?

Yes, it was confirmed. Or at least it was confirmed in Avenger 2.0 which was in turn confimred by "Grace" only the very end of thoose two eps (the medal and carter smoocg in "other" and the catfight in "Avenger") were fake.

The rest "happened" as it were.

And yes i love this episode, see my sig.

I enjoyed this ep. Very funny. Felger was played perfectly IMHO (it's the same guy that plays Herald from the "Red Green" show if you've ever seen it). The dream thing did kinda get a little confusing.

I thought the dream thing was excellent. It gave people like me, who had been thouroughly annoyed with the whole thing, a way to like the ep. All the way through I was thinking "this is just idiotic, this could never happen, these characters just can't be real" (anyone who points out that it's a Science Fiction programme will get thouroughly walloped :P) and then came The Dream Sequence and it was very cathartic, I suddenly had a reason to re-watch it. I liked the ep a lot more the second time, cos I'd decided that the whole lot was a dream.

I love, love, love this one. In fact it is on at this very moment.Felger in so in awe of the guys, and wants so much to be liked by them. I loved the remark
about his "butt snorkling" . This episode ranks right up there with Window of Opportunity as one of the funniest,( only my opinion.) Of course, I think Felger is funny, but if I had to work with him, I'd probably want to beat him up all the time.And you gotta feel sorry for Coombs, who unwittingly gets dragged along.

I loved this bit in the episode


"What would Colonell O'Neill want me to do if he was here"

"Want me to shoot you"


That has to be the funniest part of the episode. I also liked the bit when they were on the ship and they thought they were heroes! lol

Harold from Red Green does a great job with Felger.

I thought they annoyed me, the 'other guys' haha, but now, they are ok, the only real part i liked about this episode was when SG1 told them that they wanted to get captured, and the look on their faces :(

Funny episode

marcus
July 13th, 2004, 07:50 AM
While I was watching it I kept thinking that a bit of comedy is good but the idea that two academics could save SG1 in the field is ridiculous. I thought it was hurting the integrity of the show, eroding the merit of SG1's pervious exploits and achievements. At the end I was relieved to learn that it was all a dream. Mind you, it could just be the ceremony that was dream but I doubt it. After knowing that I can now watch the episode and enjoy the comedy knowing that its just an academic day-dreaming. Having RDA deliver some comedic lines is one thing but this is a mostly serious, suspense, thriller save the world show and although a bit of comedy is good, it cant attempt to fit into all genres without losing integrity. I didnt start watching this show because I was looking for good comedy. Just my opinion.

Selmak

I kind of liked this, but began to get a bit annoyed by Felger, after a while. I've always disliked butt kissers, especially when they're bad at it.

Shivan
September 28th, 2004, 02:22 PM
So the WHOLE thing was a dream OR what?

I'm confused...

Madeleine
September 28th, 2004, 06:09 PM
Depends. If you liked it, it was mostly real and just the penultimate scene was a dream. If you hated it then it was all a dream and hence Not Canon ;)

i LMAO at this episode, i thought it was soo funny the way felger was parading around trying to act like Jack

(i laugh because i know this would be me had i been in his situation!) :D

i like the fact the show isn't so stiff with si-fi that they can't lossen up and produce fantasitcally funny eps like this

about one per season it seems which i thin is great, as much as i like comdey, si-fi is my home!!!! :) :)

I would be pleased if it was dream as a whole, cause of some strange things (like Tok´ra masked as a System Lord) but I think some of us are forgotting one imoprtent thing- HERAK. He is in future episodes so it is cannon.

just saw this ep today on dvd. i would definetly rank it among my favorites, but maybe not # 1. also especially liked felger covering his eyes and shooting up the ring room. and when he's done he casually says "area secure" lol. definetly the funniest ep.

LOL. I don't see it myself but i tell you who I think looks like Brad Wright. Doc Ock from Spider-man 2.

Yes, it is canon and


At the end I was relieved to learn that it was all a dream. Mind you, it could just be the ceremony that was dream but I doubt it.

TPTB are already on record (in various interviews and DVD commentaries) as stating that it was only the ceremony at the end that was a dream. Apparently, they regret that they didn't make it clear enough for some fans that it was only the ceremony and not the whole episode that was Felger's fantasy.

The episode may not suit the personal viewing tastes of some fans, but you can't get away with claiming the whole thing was a dream when the people involved in writing and directing it say otherwise. I think they'd probably know which it was. ;)

If I want to say it was all a dream, I think I can.

It was all a dream.

There, see? ;) no one else has to agree with me, but the episode only makes sense to me if I consider it all to be Felger's fantasy, and I tend to go with what makes the most sense to me rather than what I'm told to think by someone quoting one of many PTBs (who have a nice tendency to contradict each other anyway).

There are masses of plot-holes in it, and the whole conceit is so truly daft that it actually makes more sense to me to make TOG into a dream and then plug the (fewer and smaller) plot holes generated by that - such as SG-1 knowing Herak when they meet him later.

ShadowMaat
January 20th, 2005, 06:15 PM
It's possible that the events in Other Guys happened... just not the way Felger "remembers" them. ;) Maybe he and Coombs are the ones who got caught, or they tucked tail back through the gate and picked up the rescue story from whoever was ACTUALLY sent on the mission. Or maybe there was another team there and THEY managed the rescue in spite of Felger constantly getting in the way.

Lots of room for play, really. :)

Madeleine
January 20th, 2005, 06:21 PM
Lots of room for play, really. :)

Yup, definitely. I prefer eps eps to be like that; one of the things that makes Changeling so brilliant is how there are a dozen or so aspects that can all be looked at from multiple contradictory angles without the ep making less sense. And although I believe Daniel helped Teal'c in Abyss I think that the episode would have lost a certain something if that had been made explicit.

I like it when the writers leave some stuff open to interpretation rather than spoonfeeding us everything.

And since this is a TV programme and not The Bible or Euclid's Elements I'm not going to stand for being told that I "can't" interpret it in the way I want to :p

But you can't interpret things any way you want, Madeleine. ;) Didn't you know that Stargate is a holy writ and that if you don't follow the groupmind everyone is perfectly within their right to stone you until you either admit they're right or run away? :)

Or maybe, to present an alternate interpretation, it's just YOU. Everyone else can think whatever they want, but you aren't allowed. Neener neener. :P

Oh. Um. On topic. Yes, well, Felger seems to have his OWN unique way of interpretung events, doesn't he? Could be the perfect match for ya, Madeleine. ;)

I'm also not of the "holy writ" camp. :) And I agree that they don't need to spoonfeed us. I think sometimes in the DVD commentaries, the writers & directors seem overly worried that we won't "get it" if they aren't really obvious. Can't name names, offhand.

This episode kinda annoyed me but I kinda liked it too.
I loved the line where Coombs said, "I don't know how you can call yourself a scientist and not worship at the alter of Roddenberry." Lol. Gotta love those Star Trek jokes. :D
Another point in the episode that had me cracking up uncontrollably was when they were dressed up as Jaffa and a real Jaffa stopped them and Coombs was so scared he threw up, giving Felger the opportunity to zat the Jaffa, then Felger pats Coombs on the shoulder and says, "Nicely done, nicely done," like the guy had thrown up on purpose or something. :rolleyes: Weirdness...

This was a semigood episode :p Kinda annoying some times but fun none the less. I think Felger's great! Especially in Avenger (if I remember correctly this ep wasn't big around here :p)

Felger and Jack moments are just plain funny :)



Gonna go to the Avenger topic now...

A bit of an anticlimax but undoubtedly positioned within the grand Stargate tradition of having at least of one of these self-referential episodes (a la Wormhold Xtreme) once every season ;) I didn't mind it and took it in the spirit that it was made.


This episode kinda annoyed me but I kinda liked it too.
I loved the line where Coombs said, "I don't know how you can call yourself a scientist and not worship at the alter of Roddenberry." Lol. Gotta love those Star Trek jokes. :D

That was just about when I realised that this episode was not meant to be taken seriously. I keeled over with laughter at this point and didn't look back.

Every Stargate fan's dream come true... ;)

I liked this episode--especially the comedy routine between "the other guys" and O'Neill's reaction to their behavior. The fantasy part at the end is pretty funny as well.

Great episode, and yes it would have been good if the writers had gotten coombs into Avenger 2.0, although wasn't the actor who played coombs Dr.Phlox from Enterprise?

Rune
March 10th, 2005, 01:02 PM
I love this ep, it never fails to cheer me up. Great needle & chemistry between Felger & Coombs and great flowing one way irritation / exasperation between O'Neill & Felger. The 'you nit' line always seems so far from what you imagine Jackl really wants to say in that situation too! All in all a good fun 'disengage reality' 40 minutes and I have to say I thought Kon'Su, for the short time he was in the ep made a pretty cute Tok'ra too ;)

Samantha
March 26th, 2005, 02:34 PM
That episodes great but not as good as Urgo.One of my favo. bits is when Jack says "hey everybody he's brought Coombs with him!" and the bit when Coombs is sick and Felger says "he is feeling sick". :D

I loved John Billingsly being in this episode and worshipping Star Trek, it's so funny. I love the small Geek argument in the middle of it between Felger and Coombs:

COOMBS: Can't you see they're just having fun with you?
FELGER: What are you talking about? There's something going on out there!
COOMBS: Oh please! They're just tired of your butt-snorkelling. [Mockingly] "So tell me how you finally defeated Apophis Colonel O'Neill!" "Oh, Major Carter, I based my doctoral thesis on your amazing wormhole stability theories!"
FELGER: Bite me, Coombs. at least my heroes exist. If this was a Trek convention you'd be all dressed up like a Klignon.
COOMBS: Vulcan, Felger, Vulcan! And I don't know how you call yourself a scientist and not worship at the altar of Roddenberry!
FELGER: [Mockingly] "Oh, how are we going to get out of this one captain?" "Oh, I don't know- something to do with the tachyon emitter?"
MEYERS: Guys! Knock it off!

So so comical...

Was Billingsly in Avenger 2.0, i thought it was just Felger crapping himself while he worked on trying to fix the gate network whilst under heavy fire from a load of Jaffa. At the end was quite funny as well, with the b*tch fight between Carter and the other Scientist. Geek episodes are so funny... :)

Lord Zedd
April 16th, 2005, 07:24 AM
If you ment Coombs no he isn't in Avenger 2.0 but Felger is in it. Too bad Coombs isn't in it :D would have been funny. By accident zatting a Jaffa !!

Chaka's_Mum
April 18th, 2005, 03:59 AM
I enjoyed this one, though I imagine there were people out there who found Felger too much to take.

Mind you, I also found myself wanting to smack him in the gob a lot purely because he is such a kiss-ass. But the stars in his eyes are so massive he can't see past them and realise that he's making a total prat of himself.

I thought the end scene was so neatly done, though. The ceremony and presentation had a plausible air to them. Even the moment when Jack shook hands with Felger and Coombs didn't interfere with that sense that it was actually happening (after all, Jack's man enough to admit when he's wrong about someone, isn't he?).

Then we had the the snog, of course. And what a snog it was! It's at this point that I thought 'excuse me????' and then Felger was yanked back to reality again. Aha! It was a daydream!

Bless.

Or Bleargh.

Take your pick.

Loved this one, especially the many tie-ins/jokes regarding Star Trek. Coombs=Jeffrey Coombs, and of course the mentions during it, and the red shirt comment.

I too wish they had made it clearer that only the end was the fantasy.

I LOVED this episode. It's on my top 10 list for sure. Up there with Window of Opp. and Urgo! Half the time I was annoyed with it and the other half I was laughing at the tv (got weird looks from my sis too...^_^). Felger is a character I love to hate. He's such a suck up that I just wanted to reach into the screen and throttle him! As for the ending scene i was watching it throughly disgusted and with my mouth hanging open. I'm a huge S/J shipper (obviously) but I was happy to find out that, that part was a dream. I think that the whole episode was real except the ending ceremony. Also in the Avenger 2.0 after I realized that the Sam/Cleo fighting sequence was a dream also I laughed hysterically. Jack's face was priceless when he shushed Felger!

I loved this episode too. Without Coombs,, Felger would be (and indeed is) hard to take, but the way Coombs keeps slapping him down is great. I enjoyed the little Star Trak references, but the best bit was Coombs being sick in front of the Jaffa. Classic. It was funny, it was clever, Jack had some great one-liners. But for me Coombs is the star.

I agree. I hear we probably won't see Felger in S9 (not a problem for me) but in a way I wouldn't mind seeing Coombs again.

I absolutely LOVE this ep. I watch it often - whenever I need comic relief, its this or Window of Opportunity or Urgo (although The Curse has some moments as well). But definitely this is my favorite comedic ep of Stargate. Anyway, one of the memorable lines for me is "I don't see how can you call yourself a scientist and not worship at the altar of Roddenberry!"

and butt-snorkeling.

I laugh out loud at this ep and I RARELY laugh out loud at TV

I absolutely love this episode - laugh-out-loud funny and one of my favorites of all time. Of course most of my favorites are the funny ones . . . :D

But I just thought this one was great . . . when mum and I watched it together we could not stop laughing . . . and it still makes me laugh to this day.

Too many funny quotes to mention and the acting was pretty good as well. I enjoyed the storyline as well has to be one of my best episodes.
And they fitted in with SG1 quite well...which was odd. Shame they did'nt have more episodes like this. :)

I just got to see this one, it's soo funny! Felger being the hero. loved it when Felger and Coombs were going down the hallway (after coming out of the ventilators!) of the ship and Felger's swinging his gun around taking point (it's what I would do) and Coombs tells him to quit it yet again.
And the last scene! Good way to finish, with his day dream.

Loved this one, especially the many tie-ins/jokes regarding Star Trek. Coombs=Jeffrey Coombs, and of course the mentions during it, and the red shirt comment.

I dunno if this was mentioned on this thread already or not, but the actor who played Coombs also played Doctor Phlox on Star Trek: Enterprise (I didn't know it until my third time seeing the episode). I can't recall if Enterprise was around when this episode first aired, though, but it's a strange coincidence nonetheless.

Personal favorite quote from “The Other Guys”:
“You ended that sentence with a preposition!” — Colonel Jack O'Neill

This was a fantastic episode. The Star Trek banter in the beginning had me rolling. Jack had some great lines, Felger bringing Coombs of all people, the ending a sentence with a preposition, the resume thing. My favorite part though came near the end and its only a small part but its little nuances that RDA does that make episodes for me. When Jack is about to go through the gate, as Herak is chasing them, he shrugs his shoulders to Herak just to piss him off. But Herak fires at Jack and the staff blast hits the side of the gate. Jack snaps out of his shrug and jumps through the gate like the great sarcastic bad ass that he is, waving as he goes by.

Oops, I ended that sentence with a preposition.:jack:

If I followed that up with what Jack finishes the 'preposition' quote with, I'd probably break forum rules, so I won't.;)

Have to agree - I really enjoyed this episode, though Felger was such a total and utter floorcrawling fanboy that I regularly wanted to thwack him with the nearest available copy of the Star Trek Omnipedia...

This was seriously one of the most hilarious things I've ever seen. I spent the whole episode laughing my butt off. Up to that point, I thought the "MacGuyver" references were as funny as it would get. I wasn't that amused by anything StarGate again until "Duet". (Not saying I wasn't interested, just saying I wasn't moved to laughter by it.) I love when serious shows bring the funny from time to time.

I can't tell you how much I love this episode it was just way too funny:D Felger and Coombs are funny. Loved all the StarTrek stuff:D Part of me felt bad for Felger and part of me didn't; He really hero worshipped SG1. I really felt bad for poor Coombs, he was dragged along and it was just too funny.

Jack was in top form in this episode.:jack_new_anime18: He was super funny and just brilliant soldier wise. :jack_new_anime25: Teal'c was alos super funny:tealc39: Khonsu wasa cool looking Tok'ra. He also was very evil looking:lol:

Favorite Quotes from the episode:

Jack: "So, T, who you takin' in the Cup?" (Teal'c looks at Jack.) "Lord Stanley's Cup?" (Teal'c's raises his left eyebrow.) "Hockey? Remember with the ice and skating?" (Teal'c raises both eyebrows, slightly.) "We went to a game last year?"

Teal'c: "Indeed. I believe the Canucks of Vancouver are superior warriors."

Jack (a bit surprised): "Canucks, eh?" (Jack pauses for a moment.) "So, lunch?"


Felger: "Aren't you guys the slightest bit worried about them?"

Coombs: "They'll be back, Felger. Can't you see? They're just having fun with you."

Felger: "What are you talking about? There's something going on out there."

Coombs: "Oh, please...huh? They're just tired of your butt-snorkeling." (mockingly) "So tell me how you finally defeated Apophis, Colonel O'Neill...Oh, Major Carter, I based my doctoral thesis on your amazing wormhole stability theories..."

Felger: "Bite me, Coombs! At least my heroes exist. If this was a 'Trek convention, you'd be all dressed up like a Klingon..."

Coombs: "Vulan, Felger, Vulcan! And I don't know how you can call yourself a scientist and not worship at the alter of Roddenberry..."

Felger: (mockingly)"Oooh, how we gonna get outta this one, Captain? Well, I don't know...something to do with the tachyon emitter?"


Jack: "Carter...be honest...the resum é gag?"

Teal'c: "It needs work, O'Neill."


Felger: "Stand easy...we're here to rescue you!"

Sam: "Did he say we?"

Felger: "That's right...I have Coombs with me."

Coombs: (popping his head up from behind the panel) "Hi."

Jack: (dripping with sarcasm) "Why look everybody...he's got Coombs with him."

Her'ak: "Now that, Colonel O'Neill, is what I call "pride in my work"."


Jack: "You ended that sentence with a preposition! *******!"


Did anyone else notice the Klingon Bat'leth in the throne room? I thought that was cool, excessively since they mention "red-shirts" and such.

I noticed that :lol:

Chaka's_Mum
January 2nd, 2007, 10:51 PM
Me too! I liked that. It was a nice touch to echo the Trek references. I suppose the best thing was that, despite the fact that SG-1 had intended to get captured, it turned out that Felger misreading the situation was a blessing in disguise (a very poor Jaffa-type disguise!).

Best of all, they managed to pull it off - albeit in the most inept, hopeless, my-god-we-are-flying-by-the-seat-of-our-pants-here fashion. It seemed to me that it was mostly Coombs who was the brains of the outfit - Felger was, more often than not, the mouth. Not to mention the bulging eyes and raging over-enthusiasm. He probably has a great deal of talent as a scientist - if only he could get over the whole fanboy thing and stop trying so hard to impress everyone. That's the fastest known way to make yourself look a major chump.

This ep is silly as silly can be - and great fun. Nice to see the focus on someone other than SG-1, and (better still) someone far less competent than SG-1. Talentless SGC wannabees around the world unite! There is hope for us after all! :D

Too true! :lol:

This episode was hilarious. Felger and Coombs could have been completely annoying, but because it was done with so much fun, they were actually really funny :D I also thought that only the ending was a dream (there was definitely no way Sam would do something like that :p) until I read this thread. Now I'm not so sure- maybe the whole thing was a fantasy? Perhaps I should re-watch it. ;)

Even though the ep was extremely silly, we still got some classic O'Neill lines, "Look everyone, he's got Coombs with him!" But for me, I loved Carter saying to Jonas, "How come you're not smiling?" :lol: Ya gotta love Stargate. :p

It was mostly a good episode, but I thought they went a bit too far with the whole geeky scientist thing. I mean, these guys are supposed to be among the best scientists in the world, but come across as bumbling idiots. Sometimes it was a relief when they were OFF screen. Though I did laugh when they ringed aboard the ship and one of them started shooting in all directions with his eyes closed!
The whole idea of being captured by the undercover Tokra made for a very good plot on it's own, even without the other guys.

I think it was.
He also lasts a lot longer, and keeps his boss happier than your average first prime. He is there right up until the ancient superweapon wipes out Anubis' fleet. I always remember when the ancient drones start ripping though them he gets the fateful line "our shields are of no use!"

Definately a funny episode, I love the introduction to Herak. He is the first enemy Jaffa that has survived an entire season, appearing in several episodes. I just read an interesting production note that I think would be interesting to discuss. Executive producer Joseph Mallozzi gave this statement in a chat with a GateWorld Writer.


"It was never intended to be all in Felger's head. Just the ceremony. However, watching the finished episode we realized, 'Uh oh. People are going to think it was all a daydream.' And I've read some pretty convincing arguments for why it should be a daydream."

In my opinion it wasn't a dream, if it was we wouldn't have been introduced to Herak a reoccurring character.

Pretty fun episode with a nice blend of humor and action. I would have liked to have seen more of a "Revenge of the Nerds" style to it, rather than having everybody shoot each other in the end our two heros rescue SG-1 using their wits, building a machine/electric violin concert. Also, I'm convinced Teal'c should have screamed "NERDS!" at some point during the episode.

I preferred Coombs to Felger, so it's a shame we never saw him again. He was just so tragic it was hilarious ("I have a vespa and two cats!")

I also liked the cinematography of this episode: very sleek. The long-distance shots of the alkesh delivering Jaffa into the fight, and the ring sequences throughout were generally exceptional.

Also, Hammond, "They did what!?" Bwahaha!! :hammond04:

Am I the first Rewatcher to catch this ep?

1. Really wasn't sure to make of this ep going into it, concept reminded me slightly of a Babylon 5 S5 ep.

2. Must have watched this ep with Mum as at the end of it she said "this is like something you'd write" which I took as, it was like a piece of fan fiction. Which it is, certainly first time around it seemed to be the best comedy ep since Window of Oportunity.

3. This time round...it wasn't so hot, maybe because I'm tired and dealing with the back end of a cold...I certainly can't imagine coming up with a guy like Felger who just seemed more annoying this time round, Coombs yeah though.

4. Then again, to be fair you can't blame the two geeks, I mean, we've never heard of a Tok'ra having that many Jaffa supposedly loyal to him.

5. Herak is the proof that most of this ep is not a dream.

Still a fun ep!

This episode cracked me up the first time I watched it, and still makes me chuckle with each re-watch. I just loved the way two hapless scientists manage more by dumb luck than any judgement to end up saving the day! The scene where they were dressed as Jaffa and Coombs put his glasses back on was just so funny! Of course we just had to have the Star Trek discussions with John Billingsley, loved him as Dr Flox in 'Enterprise'.

....It also gave us the first appearance of Herak, Herak rocks!!! :P He's so uselessly earnest, tries so hard and is a wonderful object of O'Neill's sarcastic jokes here and in future encounters.

Rewatching it after I moved to Vancouver from the UK made the hockey discussion between Jack and Teal'c make sense. For years I had no idea what that was about! Of course I learned of the 'Red Green Show' as well, in which Patrick McKenna appeared as another hapless geeky guy. This comedy found many uses for duct tape, which was the ongoing joke and it was only now that I noticed that a couple of the scientists had rolls of duct tape hanging off their belts! It's these little in joke references to other Canadian shows,which previously went unnoticed that add some more fun with rewatching Stargate now that I've lived in Vancouver for six years. :)

This one has my favorite O'Neill crack. The preposition joke just continues to crack me up even in the recent sitting. The episode is not to be taken. That obvious with how they gloss over the fact the Tok'ra had key information to Anubis key information. Its a pure comedy episode all around. I find most of the Felger and Combs humor over the top and found myself laughing more at the SG1 antagonism against Herak. They way they mock him (especially Jack) was great. A nice departure with the seriousness that we see in S6.

I have always enjoyed the episodes with Felger. Many of us have encountered a Felger along the road somewhere in life. A well meaning geek that most people make fun of, but who has a heart of gold and tries really hard. These were the kind of guys that sometimes followed me around in High school, cause I could never be nasty to them or make fun of them the way other people did. I appreciated them for the cards they were dealt. Guess I have a soft spot for Felger too.

Felger and Combs, the funniest scientists ever. And they meant well... just have bad timing. Although in the end they obviously come in handy after all.

This is just such a fun episode. Lots of Star Trek references with the Klingon batleth behind the throne the icing on the proverbial cake. Whoever came up with that idea... I like. :)

My only gripe would be that Coombs was way too loud in all of the scenes where they were sneaking around. I probably would have resorted to punching him if he didn't quiet down after repeated attempts of telling him to.

Anyway, definitely one of my favorite episodes overall. Can't believe I forgot about this one. Then again, I've forgotten most of SG-1 oops.

Among my favourites, because I like Felger, he is cute somehow and very brave although he doesn't have a plan, he doesn't know anything about military tactics, he doesn't know about weapons but he survives - reverse Darwinism at its finest!!!

This was actually better the second time through for me. Very enjoyable watch as I had forgotten how it all unravelled. Some good sci-fi references :)



Felger: I brought Coombs with me!
O'Neill: Oh look every body: He's GOT COOMBS WITH HIM!

I think this is a precursor to the Dr. Beckett joke in Atlantis :D

I feel like I'm the only (in)sane viewer in the galaxy...I can't stand this episode or Felcher. I laughed a few times at O'Neill and I get that this was meant to be a light episode, but it was just torture for me. As another poster said it seems to knock SG1 down a few pegs when two bumbling (soldier) idiots can rescue them. I also wanted to shut Coombs up the entire time. I wish the whole thing was a dream...it just doesn't feel like SG1 reality, even compared to other comedic episodes like Urgo, Wormhole Xtreme and Window of Opportunity.

But as bad as this is for me Avengers is 10 times worse.

Ok I'll end my rant and hurry on to rewatching the next ep.

Maybe you are taking this one too seriously - I liked it very, very much and I don't think it decreases SG1's position.

Even viewing it the second time around, knowing it was supposed to be a humorous episode, did not help. The style as I said just didn't fit the show, IMO. It was trying too hard to be funny in a rather serious situation.

To each their own. Good that lots of people enjoy it but I'm definitely skipping it next time around.

I don't like Felger, but I do like Coombs because he reluctantly went along, and truly saved SG1. Felger was annoying.

having seen this for the first time, and with a 16 year perspective, I'm not too fond of it. It reminds me of about 10,000 forties through sixties movies about two bumblers who mix with serious types to save the day, from a Bob Hope, Danny Kaye, Abbott and Costello type with B heroes and villains. It seemed, as O'Neill would say, very cliched.
Speaking as a writer, to make something part of a dream is a very weak plot device, but it didn't seem to bother anyone on this thread.
It did have a lot of good lines, and Richard Dean Anderson plays a great annoyed straight man. Good one-liners, although not caring for Star Trek, I'm kind of lost on all the in-jokes.

And why is it those Mother ships never have ANYONE in the corridors??

A thought: it seems the most dangerous job in the universe is that of a To'kra or Ja'ffa warrior. They're always getting taken out.

well the trouble is they have lots of ships often and spread their people thin, throw in thousands of years of constant power struggles and they are always short of jaffa, servant goulds, and materials like naquadah,

they seem to have the same issue of the wraithe, all thier jaffa are exhausted early on in their conquests due to being 20 plus years to grow and train or if you send them too soon they tend to die, their wars and battles and skirmishes constantly cost them resources they dont have to spare, instead of buying expensive parties and stuff, they are constantly buying expensive things to be blown or to blow up other stuff from someone else... those battles are costing them their naquadah resources as well... so the gould are all sort of ..... well focused more on just relaxing and making sure no one has more then anyone else, thats why they dont exactly want to capture earth, because so many people would upset their thousands of years of balance of power which is as close to a truce or peace as they know how to live with etc

I'm rather intrigued what your definition of "a great annoyed gay man" is now.

Hide-and-seek has been made illegal to play on the motherships. They kept loosing Jaffa. :p

************

An attempt at making a mission-gone-awry episode funny. It works on certain levels. I giggled once and I'm rating an excellent because it's quite entertaining. The other guys is just Felger getting the other two into trouble, although Coombs takes the brunt of it.

Little going on but plenty of action to be had. Lots of Jaffa biting the dust again, or tasting pond-water. Funny though how fast Teal'c was all dried up after having been completely submerged. Or how the weather on the planet where Felger and his compatriots are investigating the ring transporter has sunshine in on place, and about a mile away there's a heavy cloud blocking the sun and it looks several degrees colder as opposed to warm and sunny. They weren't that far from the gate either cause Felger and his buddies had plenty time to run back to their research side and ring into the ship.

How would you rate SG-1's "The Other Guys?"

Excellent
Good
Fair
Poor
Terrible

I tend to forget FH is not a native speaker, even though I know she lives in some small country in Europe and not in a large country in North America.

I also tend to forget I'm a lot older than she is, so some of the cultural references I make are obscure due to age, not language barriers.

In any case, a good example of a straight man is George Burns when working with his wife, Gracie Allen: Gracie tells a story (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlFCKZkeBrg).

Another reason for "straight man" becoming an obscure reference is the dearth of stand-up comedy teams. Most stand-up comics work alone. In teams, there was usually one man who was the straight man and the other gave the punch lines.

For shame FH for not mentioning this is the first time Jack has his verbral insulting with Herrack. I always loved the line about preposition. Besides that its just your standard comedy episode to see how real people compare to SG1. I don't have anything to say about it that hasn't been said. I give it a fair

In addition to Her'ak reappearing, here are quotes from season 7's "Avenger 2.0" to support the "it wasn't all a dream" responses.



CHLOE
Is it defeating the Goa'uld you're worried about, or impressing Major Carter?

FELGER
Hey, unlike some people in this room, I've seen what the Goa'uld can do, first hand.

CHLOE
Yes, I know, you've told me a thousand times. You rescued SG-1 from the evil Lord What's-His-Name.

FELGER
Her'ak. And he wasn't an evil lord, he was a First Prime.

CHLOE
Jay, you're a brilliant scientist. Someday you're going to win the Nobel prize. What do you care what these military types think of you, anyway?

FELGER
You don't get it. You know, when you've stood side by side with someone and stared into the face of death, it creates an unspoken bond, an understanding that transcends simple friendship. Colonel O'Neill and I have been to hell and back together. When the mission was over, he looked me in the eye and do you know what he said to me? He said—


O'NEILL
It's Felger.

CARTER
He did save our lives, Colonel.

O'NEILL
Yeah, don't remind me.
