    I really like this episode for some reason. One of my favourites of Season 2.

    O'Neill dying and being possessed by an alien artefact and Teal'c saying his first 'joke'! What more could you want from an episode? Also, that Graham person and his little crush on Sam......how I laughed, lol. Shame he only pops up a few times throughout the entire series though....

      It wasn't the most unique idea, but it was done in an interesting way IMO.

      I love Teal'c's attempts at humor, they're all great, mostly because they are completely unexpected

      Also, that Graham person and his little crush on Sam......how I laughed, lol.
      I thought it was 'cute' the first time I saw it, but with every guy and his brother having a crush on her anymore it looses some of it's originalness, and thus some of it's 'cuteness' IMO.

        Hmmm, interesting viral lifeform. A hive mind, perhaps?

          That was a good idea... bring a spiky thing back through the stargate.

          How do long spiky things come out of a small ball?

          again a VERY alien spices... not a cheesy human with an f***ed up forehead and pointy ears.

            The same way a viral lifeform is able to communicate and compromise with an alien species. Or simply put: Magick.

              This episode, at least in part, is an homarge to the film The Andromeda Strain from 1971.

              In it they encounter an alien virus that seems to feed on energy, which escapes containment by consuming material. This activates the failsafe system, called wildfire, at which point they postulate that the system detonating will give it enough energy to spread cross the globe.

              Although there are no aliens, its basically the same plot, and the same name, wildfire, for the big bomb.

                I was thinking of the book

                I didn't like the movie at all.

                    Couldn't the aliens have left a note next to their little ball or something? "Don't touch unless you want to be impaled"

                      They could have, but then it would have been a very short ep.

                      Opening credits

                      Jack: "Look what I've found. Shall we take it home with us?"
                      Sam: "Hey look! There's a sign here! What does it say, Daniel?"
                      Daniel: "Uh.....hang on.......it says "dont touch unless you want to be impaled".......best we leave it alone."
                      Teal'c: "Indeed!" Raises eybrow.

                      End credits.

                        To be fair, it didn't turn spiky until Carter started fiddling with it back on Earth.

                        I found the whole storyline a bit dull (and somewhat similar to Cold Lazarus but the execution was brilliant, with soaring music, exciting camera shots and wonderful character moments for the entire cast.

                            I supposed that the viral lifeform didn't want him to bleed to death.
                            That and the fact that if they had shown blood dripping off his wound, or running down the spike, the certificate for the episode would have been higher.

                              I love the episode (even though there is major Jack whumping)

                              It's an intriguing idea. A whole civilisation in a time capsule.
