    That has always bugged me.

    SG-1 arrives at isolated world with a gate in the center plaza of the village

    Daniel: You've been on this planet for hundreds of years, nobody ever used the stargate, and there are only a few hundred people on this planet?
    Villagers: Yes.
    Jack: So you're all like related?
    Villagers: *shrug*
    Sam: Technobable
    Teal'c: Indeed

      Well... They had to explain the lack of extras. Goa'uld wars decimated the locals in MW, Wraith culling harvested the locals in Pegasus galaxy.

      They even mentioned that the Goa'uld never let a big population on a planet, probably because they couldn't control them and continue the act of gods and goddesses.

        I liked this episode okay until Sam goes back down - I didn't believe her at all that she "knew" Cassandra wouldn't go off - just seemed really stupid to possibly sacrifice herself if she was wrong.

          Well, if she had been wrong, she'd be dead but that's never gonna happen cause they don't kill main characters in Stargate unless the actors ask to be removed.

          Or at least, main characters TPTW liked enough to keep around, anyone else was fair game. So basically, Carter was never in any real danger.

            Right but that's what makes it so cheap! Her going back effectively guarantees that she doesn't blow up - so not only do you have a stupid decision from Carter, but you killed the dramatic tension at the last moment.

                Did you know that on your first watch of season 1? Nobody knew that at the time right?

I can’t even express these things properly, because I have to—I have to conceptualize complex ideas in this stupid, limiting spoken language, but I know I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws, and feel the solar wind of a supernova flowing over me. I’m a machine, and I can know much more.

                  Hindsight... or something... is always 20/20.

                    Based on like shows of the era though - It would have been bold indeed if they killed off a main character in such a way - possibly unprecedented!

                      I was actually expecting that response from FH Shooo!!

                      But yea, you're right. I was quite young when the 1st season aired so I was a naive Chaka I guess. I had a crush on Amanda too...

                        Which teenager boys hadn't?

                        Talking about naive viewers. When Sheridan died at Za'ha'dum in Babylon 5, I really believed that is the end for him. I didn't know the cruelty of season finale's cliffhangers. That scene made me even cry.

                            jelly: you have a crush on bacons, we all know that.

                            Actually Gabrielle from Xena was the real one. And Dr. Julia Heller from Earth 2.... Sam is just the third, but then Vala took over this position, but I was already influenced by FarScape.

                                That's because you were born a man.
