    Yet again... I hate Jack and have no idea why he is even allowed on a 1st contact Sg team. He should be on a team that is used just for hostile situations. He has zero intelligence or diplomacy. Bleh

    This was a good piece for Shanks. Michael and Reece were strong together, and the actress who played Reece did very well, but I agree she isn't that young. The replicators made a great entrance, didn't they?
    Sneaking out of a child's shelves.

    The last scene was strong between O'Neill and Daniel. Both did what they had to do, and there was no choice but to kill Reece. AT THAT MOMENT, the replicators were ready to start killing. Military thinking is taking decisive action in an instant.
    Fun seeing Hammond do some shooting.
    No, I don't think Daniel loved Reece. he just wanted to do things in a compassionate, human way.
    Reece's unleashing reminded me of Forbidden Planet, where Morbius unleashed monsters in his sleep. Anyone catch that resemblance?
    Listening to the commentary, everyone said this was shot on the day 9-11 happened, and they were subdued and worried, especially Chris Judge, since he had family in NYC. They said it was tough getting him to do scenes. Also, the idea of 'innocent' people bringing on deadly invaders sobered the crew on set.

    You can always try -- and redo them after.

    I won't make it to the end of SG-1 until sometime next year or so.

    Take it up with my parents...

    7:59 on the jigsaw and oh my goddess... one of the students outside has a horribly annoying laugh... she may regret keeping me awake right now. I feel like leaving tomorrow morning honking the hell out of this street and the building across the road.

    FH, your parents made you wrong. I couldn't resist that joke. This is one of my favorite episodes. Not so much about Reese. I like this episode because it kind of explains the origin of the Replicators with leaving room to explore. Never understood why the Replicators left the Milky Way to encounter the Asgard in Ida. As for the ending, i think It's important that both Jack and Daniel were right. I give it a hood

    On the one hand, I'm quite satisfied with how this episode plays out, and on the other I want to smack Jack upside the head so bad. "You son of B****" -- Daniel's line just puts down in words everything that is wrong with this episode.

    First of all, they clearly learned nothing from their previous missions where they bring stuff home that turns out to bite them in the behind. They all forgot that wonderful time capsule that put a spike through Jack's shoulder and pinned him to the wall of the gate room.

    So, they bring another advanced bit of technology home and it, once again, spins vastly out of control. Who woulda thunk?!

    Anyhoodle, Reese turns out to be the creator of the replicators and that opens up possibilities and at the same time a whole can of problems they haven't got an answer for. In the end, what Jack does when he shoots Reese, he does it to protect everyone. He's right, we don't know whether Reese was trying to shut the replicators down or whether they were already going beyond her orders again, and the harm of leaving her to decide about it, would have been the planet when they made it out. Did he make the right decision when he shot her? In his military detached mind, he did. On a different level, I don't know... should he given Reese the benefit of the doubt... maybe, maybe not -- is there even a grey area here to consider. I don't know...

    How would you rate SG-1's "Menace?"

    Excellent
    Good
    Fair
    Poor
    Terrible

    You'd think they would have learned their lesson by now... but nope, they clearly haven't.

    I think this was a good to fair episode.

    First, I must say that Danielle Nicolette was awesome as Reese. She is also a shorty like me, so I appreciate her even more.

    My question is how dumb do they need to be, to bring the only piece of technology on a planet where life was wiped out, back to earth? I was almost yelling at the TV because of it. Really, that colored my attitude for the whole episode.

    To me, Daniel was trying to reason with a 4yo mentality in Reese. I am sorry, it might have worked for a short while, but then it might have not. I usually like Daniel, but for some reason I found him annoying here.

    I totally agree with Jack that he did the right thing by shooting her. Really, they had to nip the replicators in the bud before they got a hold on Earth.

    I really loved seeing Hammond in combat mode!
