    Here's an episode that I feel gets forgotten. It's not my favorite, but I thought it was a really solid episode.

    I really liked Merrin and I really liked Jack's reactions because of Merrin.

    IMO it was a really good character piece for Jack.

    Plus this is where all the naquidah reactors originated.

    I'm a little disapointed that we've never revisited Orban to see how the people are doing, and how much more they have advanced. Espcially considering they are our allies.

      Each time I see this ep I like it a little more. I like the ending, it's sort of bittersweet.

      But the outfits the kids wear make me thing they're about to start a fencing competition.

        I hadn't thought of that... but I can see it now that you mention it.

          I liked this episode, too. A good episode for Jack. Some of the best ones are when he interacts with kids (the one with Charlie, the Reetou kid is another). The only thing I didn't like was how he insisted that Merrin draw a flower. I mean, I know he was trying to show her how to have fun, and how not to be so concerned with getting it "right" but it still seemed that he was inforcing his ideas on her. But, other than that, I really enjoyed it.

            I think what Jack was trying to do was make Merrim think for herself and use her imagination, instead of relying on her super intelligence and her common sense.
            I wish Jack wouldn't have got away with it. He needed a reprimand not a pat on the head.

              He got away way too easy.

                Brittney Irvin is a wonderful actress. She's just incredible! (She is also a singer, and a very good one at that.) Hard to believe she's 18 now, isn't it?

                  He had an official reprimand for that on his record in Shades of Grey IIRC.

                    goood episode. can't believe most of the stuff the air force advisors let sg-1, hammond and jack in particular away with. but hey, its just a tv show. i keep trying to remind myself of that.

                    great character interaction in this one. some great lines. plus we get the naquadah reactor. yay. and we see that sam isn't completely super sam, when she has some minor trouble understanding the exact workings of the reactor at first. i never got that whole super sam thing myself though.

                    still though. i liked this one a lot.

                      I never looked at it this way before, but you are absolutely right.

                        I think Jack was good in this episode by helping her learn at her own pace without guidance!

                            I just saw this episode tonight for the very first time (during the Stargate Monday maratheon) and I thought it was a very good episode!!

                            Out of the episodes I've seen so far (which really isn't many), Learning Curve is definitly one of my current favorites.

                            I like the concept of the episode. Its really smart and it makes you think. The idea doesn't talk down to the audience.

                            And in the episode you can see both the SG-1's pov and the pov of the people on the planet.

                            Best of all though, imo, was that ENDING! Wow.

                            It was a very happy ending, but also a little sad too.

                            Really the prefect ending for the episode!

                            I hope that I will get to see the episode again sooner or later!

                              The ending was good. I've never seen O'Neill so firthcoming with others. Shame Charlie isn't around..
