    I wonder if these aliens were ascended? Sad we never got any more info about them.

    Janet actually said there was no history of schizophrenia in Daniel's family history, not that there were no mental health issues in his family whatsoever.

    In "Crystal Skull," it was said that Daniel's grandfather (Nick) had a "mental breakdown." Mental health disorders like schizophrenia can cause a mental breakdown, but anyone can have a stress induced breakdown. Janet seemed to think that's what happened to Nick, which suggests that he was never diagnosed with schizophrenia. Thus, there's no contradiction. However, even if Janet had said Daniel's family had no mental health issues, "Crystal Skull" still wouldn't contradict "Legacy" since she would have been saying they had no mental health issues that would suggest a genetic cause for Daniel's condition (a breakdown caused by stress is not something Daniel could inherit).

    Legacy

    Mackenzie: "Dr. Jackson's dopamine levels have increased in the left hemisphere of his brain. All these symptoms are textbook schizophrenia."

    Janet: "Nobody knows the exact cause of schizophrenia. Some cases are genetic, but there's no history of it in Daniel's family. When it's not genetic, it's environmental and…the Stargate is a plausible environmental cause."

    Crystal Skull

    Janet: "Apparently his failure to prove the crystal skull was more than just a curiosity caused a severe mental breakdown from which he's never been able to fully recover. Nick checked himself in."

    I enjoy this episode so much, again except for some of the special effects.

    My favorite two lines this time around, was Rothman asking Siler, “What do you think?” With Siler’s reply of “I think you’re gonna get fired.” Lol

    Considering Daniel mentioned he wasn't close with his grandfather, it's more likely he never mentioned he had one.

    Grandpa was self-admitted after a mental breakdown. Not all mental issues are passed down through the family lineage.

    Platschu, you missed one. Daniel moves between the time he falls when Teal'c zats the skull, and when the camera pans back to him as the others leave.

    3x21 Chrystal skull

    1.Daniel mentioned that he has got fears of height in 2x08 Thor’s chariot, but he could walk in without hesitation here.
    2.Daniel’s grandpa is in a mental institute. Janet mentioned in 3x04 Legacy that his family had never had mental issues.

    3.It was very convenient for the invisible Daniel that they left out a space for him while they were walking back to the skull.

    Like the meeting place of the 5 great races in Torment of Tantalus.

    It was. The giant identified as Quetzalcoatl -- an Aztec god, which was also present in the Mayan mythology.

    I enjoyed seeing Daniel's grandfather, Nick, and finding out both Daniel and Nick had similar experiences in the academic world. Loved seeing the alien giants! General Hammond's call with his granddaughter was sweet.

    I rate this as good, just because the special effects were bad. Everything else was great!

    But it wouldn't be blurred. That's why I chose the Grand Canyon for my example. In this picture, for example, both the climber and the background are in focus--and that background is miles away. Blurring the background doesn't make it look huge, it makes it look poorly done.
