    Maybe everyone treats the Gateroom like outdoors?


    Because...ehh I give up...
    FOR PETE'S (no, not THAT Pete) SAKE, THE ABOVE POST (if offensive in anyway) WAS MADE IN JEST!

      The episode was good but the costumes were a little over the top
      Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini => three of the world's worst dictators.

      Also failed artist, failed priest, and failed grade-school teacher.

      What we should learn: Don't trust artists, be wary of priests, and fear your teachers!

        EVERYTHING was over the top, that's what's so awesome about old eps. of almost anything. For instance, I just saw the first few episodes of STS9 for the first time, and everything is so different and kind of cheesy.

        Hey, isn't there a clip of Sam saluting indoors in the credits? That's funny...

          A fabulous premier ep that got me hooked on Stargate the second MS step on screen.

          The reason I checked it out tho was RDA I was a McGyver fan and the chance to see him in something new I could not pass up.

              But on the other hand, aren't you supposed to wear a hat outside? I think in one of the commentaries for a later season the director wanted to do an outside scene with the characters in their AF uniforms, but didn't want their hats to hide their faces so shot without hats. The AF advisor told him he couldn't do that, so they had to re-shoot.
              Would you come to attention as a sign of respect even if you didn't have to?

                In the commentary in question, PDL's objection was that he thought the hats were UGLY not hiding faces. It was one of those moments where I didn't enjoy his commentary on the episode.

                  That's right--it comes back to me now. It was the women's hats, wasn't it? That was kind of narrow minded of him. As for me, I don't think they're ugly.

                    It's the Prodigy commentary. He went on at great length about how they looked like macdonald's hats. I found it rather disrespectful, and it made him sound ignorant.

                      He was probably *trying* to be funny. No sale.
                      A bit OT: What is the rule for what hat you wear when? Sometimes they wear the visored ones and sometimes they wear the angular kind. Can't think if there is a special term for it.

                        There are a bunch of terms for both, but generally the one with the brim is a peak or visor cap (or cover), and the one that is flat and foldable is a garrison cap.

                        Both can be worn with class A or class B uniforms (blues with or without the jacket). The visor cap is a bit more formal and is worn generally more formally. The garrison cap has the advantage of being able to be shoved in a pocket, under a shoulder strap, or in a belt. When you have to keep track of a hat, this gives it a great deal of advantage.

                        Also, the women's version of a visor hat is... not particularly popular. I believe the only time Sam's worn it was in Between Two Fires.

                            Certain branches of the military do and don't salute indoors....but for the life of me, I can't remember which do and don't for sure. I think the Army does not, but the Air Force and Navy do.
                            It makes no difference what you do to me. But know this, the Ori are all-seeing.

                            That doesn't count
                            No, it doesn't.

                              Hey I just watched the Ep 1, Season 1 of Stargate Atlantis.

                              Which made me think back to Ep 1, Season 1 of Stargate SG-1, "Children of the Gods".

                              And which made me decide that I SG-1 was done much better lol. The main thing is character development. SG-1 may have had the benefit of the movie, but still, the character introduction was done very thoroughly. While in Atlantis they get right into the action without much emphasis on character. Hmm, also I never liked the idea of Dr Weir at the helm of Atlantis. No, it's not because she's a woman, I like women. I just have a problem with civilians. It just doesn't click for me - and also she seems too young. Someone older, wiser, a bit round, and bald with a blue short sleeved shirt would be more fitting

                              I'm not resisting it cos it's new...the character set just seems a bit weak.

                              It's the Prodigy commentary. He went on at great length about how they looked like macdonald's hats. I found it rather disrespectful, and it made him sound ignorant.
                              macdonald's hats , lol. i never noticed what hats they wear at macdonalds. don't they just wear baseball caps? or is it just here?

                                I don't like SGA that much either. SG-1 is still the standard. Also my dislike is because of SGA rehashing old SG-1 stories.
                                Example: They encountered fog on one of the planets. The fog turned out to be living beings.
                                This is a take on the SG-1 episode were the Russian stargate malfunctioned because it connected to a waterplanet were the water turned out to be liveing beings.

                                Atlantis is currently just a rip-off of SG-1.
