    I found the joke quite funny, myself; in a 'slightly emphatic exhalation of breath through the nose in mild amusement' kind of way.

    It's the way he tells 'em.

    Thinking back - no I don't think Sam ever used the hand device again. I'm not surprised, though. She said from the outset that she couldn't control it - and proved it by, quite literally, impacting Seth into a stone floor. Besides, given what else it can do, I suspect she'd rather not even touch it ever again.

    Even though Brad regrets doing this one, I enjoyed it. Okay the moral of the story is laid on with a trowel, but it's got Jacob and Selmak in it.

    I am, it seems, easily pleased.

    I am getting well and truly addicted to Stargate now! This entire episode was worth it just for Teal'c's joke - and the look on his comrade's faces when he told it. I loved the way mythology was tied into the story.

    I did feel a bit sorry for the ATS guy though, he was only trying to do his job. But the exchanges between him, Jack and Jacob, plus the call from the President, were very funny.

    It's always good to see Jacob and his evolving relationship with Selmek.

    Yep...and I don't think she used it after this episode? Right?

    I actually didn't like this episode very much. Its one of the early episodes Brad wished they never had done. And the costume design for this episode...bleh.

    Sam was pretty astounding with that hand device - though I think we all agree it was a bit startling that they all forgot she was vulnerable to Seth picking up on her naquadah 'signal'. Even Jacob and Teal'c didn't mention it - despite knowing that he'd spot Selmak and Junior in less time than it takes to say 'I have - or used to have - a symbiote somewhere about my person'.

    It has to be said that there are a few nagging bits and bobs like that in the episode, but I still enjoy it - and it's got Jacob in it ; so I don't care!

    Bizarrely, I laughed because I thought it was funny. Still don't know why - 'cos it is indeed very lame. Of course the best bit was the reaction from the rest of the team, like the panel used to do in 'Shooting Stars' when Vic told a joke. All that was missing was the whistling wind and the tumbleweeds.

    I'm watching this episode at the moment. It's quite a cool episode.

    I really like this episode for the Carter family interaction and that includes the bits between Jacob and Selmak. We get a brief glimpse of the dynamic between host and symbiote.
    I agree, it's so interesting seeing the they interact with themselves, and with Sam.

    This is one of my favourite episodes

    Nah - I'm probably rambling a bit. I do tend to do that from time to time. I don't think it's more one than the other - I think it's the perfect combination of both.

    Seth simply isn't ready for SG-1 - they, on the other hand, are ready for him.

    That's what tips the balance in their favour. Seth isn't a pushover - after all; he kept his head when all around him were losing theirs (to mis-quote Kipling) and it's quite possible he could have got away amongst the fleeing disciples if Selmak hadn't been present and spotted him. The necessary foreknowledge of what they were likely to face, and preparedness for it, was SG-1's strongest weapon; and they had the skill to use that advantage to the full.

    Ok so it was more seths being unprepared then sg-1 being talented?

    Sorry if I am taking your words out of context.

    So you believe he became basicaly useless in the duration of his time spent on earth?

    Interesting probably that case.
    I wouldn't say useless - at least not in that sense; I would prefer the word 'complacent'. He's clearly been a right royal pain in the rear for centuries on a purely human scale - after all, he's stranded here so he's got no access to ships and no Jaffa (not even ones whose noses drip - to quote Teal'c) and that hasn't stopped him raising bands of followers who he then eliminates without so much as a second thought when it suits him.

    What I'm getting at (albeit in a somewhat facetious manner - I was taking the doodah a bit with my comment ) is that he's been stuck here amongst people who are technologically and knowledgeably far inferior to himself and he's got cheerfully over comfortable with that. After such a long time in galactic obscurity, he's not likely to be anticipating any visits from another System Lord, so the only threat he's facing is the Tauri - and they don't know what he is or what he's capable of (apart from killing all his followers and disappearing a lot).

    He's never had to go beyond this expedient Plan B before because no one's ever approached him knowing he's a Goa'uld, or had the requisite knowledge to deal with him. SG-1 are coming in with that requisite knowledge, and with a Tok'ra and Jaffa on the outside to back them up. Seth really does need a Plan C for this kind of scenario - but he's so used to not worrying about a level playing field that he clearly hasn't got around to devising one.

    Admittedly, by the end, both sides are improvising like mad to achieve their respective goals (Seth to do a runner, SG-1 to stop Seth doing a runner), but I think we can all agree that SG-1 have quite a bit more practice at that sort of thing.

    Seth is therefore a victim of his own hype (and Sam with a hand device, of course...).
