    What a terrific episode!

    A forgotten gem.

      I wonder if they'll ever revisit this planet to get the 'book'......I imagine it could be translated seeing as they could ask Thor or someone about it. Or even go to the Nox!

        Jack: Surgical attack Teal'c. It's called a surgical attack.

          Oh my! Not sure where to find it online (don't think I want to know either since it's probably not legal), but you have GOT TO see it! There are a ton of references from this episode that pop up later in the series.

          I just checked scifi.com's page and it looks like it's not going to be on again until at least July. Bummer. Hope you don't have to wait that long to find it.
          There is nothing cruvas with me.

            This was an interesting twist to add these races to the mix. And then to later on, meet them. Still would love to see what the Furlings look like!!

                This was really interesting...becuase we go to know that the gate was open before and it opened up the four race thingy whatever happened to the lady, daughter of the guy who found the gate, and her 'friend' ???
                And did anyone form SGC asked Thor about that place?

                  I loved this ep, one of my favorite.

                  I'd like to see Ernest and Cathryn return in a future ep.

                  Also, now that the Prometheus is active, it occurs to me that they could simply fly there and go to the library with the "meaning of life stuff". They could take Ernest with them (if the actor who played him is still alive, fit and willing). After all, Ernest spent many years there, and has likely explored much of the surrounding area for many miles around.

                  The Stargate likely fell into the sea, but I claim that the rest of castle, including the library device, is further "inland" and is still there to explore.

                  Plus, they could take some cranes and dig the gate out of the sea and set it up again further back so it won't fall in as quickly again, assuming they can fix the problem of the broken DHD, or make another, like with the Earth made DHD. They might also take a DHD from a less valuable planet--like on a unhabitable world, and move it to Heliopolisis.

                  All in all, I loved this ep, and I think there's potential for a spinoff ep in season 9 or beyond

                    I love this eposode. It cathches up with Catharine. It makes a good point about about true love. Jack is more sweet, friendly, and less guadred than he usually is. The part where he askes Catherine for a hug is especiallly sweet.

                      Good episode, with the hilarious reactions to a naked old man suddenly appearing.

                        They would have to get another actor to play the older Dr. Littlefield. Keene Curtiss, who played him, died in 2002.

                        But it would be neat if they had the man who the young Dr. Littlefield (forgot his real name at the moment but he plays Dr. Beckett in SA) to put on the aging makeup and play him.

                          I would love for the SG teams to revisit this planet and pick up the book. Along with the four tablets. Maybe we could decypher what the ancient and asgard were talking about.

                            This is my favourite episode of Season One. It's just a terrific episode allround, I too wish they would revisit the planet sometime.

                              When Daniel motions for him to turn around and see Catherine for the first time, I tear up.

                              Then he looks at her and makes a "hump!" noise. And her response is something like "Fifty years and all I get is "hump!" That jump from sentimental to humor is so well done.
