    This is not one of my favourite episodes. I've only seen it twice. The first time was OK because it was new to me. The second time I didn't enjoy it at all but I can't put my finger on why. The acting was mostly OK, particularly Daniel as an addict and going through withdrawal. The story was OK, although I don't think the sarcophagus is solely (or even mostly) to blame for the Goa'uld being the way they are. I guess it's just going to be one of the episodes I don't watch much.

    I actually thought Daniel and Shyla were a cute couple.

    I really didn't like Shyla, she was controlling, manipulative, suicidal, and mentally insane in general. Sure she had a pretty face but she was completely over the edge. I really do hope that the SGC straightened things out on that planet. It would be completely irresponsible to allow those people to keep shoveling Naquadah to the Goa'uld.

    Nice going Danny. Got his team in trouble because of his impulsiveness. He seems to have forgotten that he is part of a team. Then gets himself addicted to the sarcophagus. "Distressful damsel" as Captain Jack Sparrow would say.

    How long where the rest of the SG1 in the mines? With only water to survive?
    Acting wise, everyone did a great job. Though Sam is not my fave char., I loved Sam's reaction to Danny the first time they see him acting loopy. She looked so shocked and fearful at the same time.The scene between Jack and Daniel when Daniel broke down was really well done as well.I hope Daniel remembers how good a friend Jack. I hope he appreciates the trust Jack gave him when he supported Daniel in going back to the planet. Jack can be really snarky and trigger-happy and closed-minded at times, but when it comes down to it, he is a good friend.

    I don't blame Daniel for what happened, he was attempting to get them out when he was being addicted to the sarcophagus. There was nothing he could do other than play along with Shyla and try to get her to release his friends.

    Not a bad episode, acting was top notch - well done Michael Shanks, music was good and we got to learn more about Goa'uld technology.

    It goes to explain how the Goa'uld are so evil but like others have said I don't think it's the only contributing factor, maybe but after hundreds/thousands of years of use you can see where it can lead you. Interesting about Sam recalling memory/having a vision from the time she had a Tok'ra in her.

    Jack's comment "I've seen an awful lot of union violations here I should probably speak to your supervisors, Hi ho hi ho back to work"

    To be fair if anyone is at fault for Shyla's behaviour then it is her parents. It seemed she but a lonely life without others for company, guidance or even friendship so when the man her Mother spoke of came of course she wasn't going to let him go, even if it was deceitful. Also she wanted to please her aging/dying Father.

    The Goa'uld that originally mined the planet must of only been a minor Goa'uld otherwise you would think other ships might come or jaffa replacements/rotation etc. But I guess they got their supply sent through the gate they didn't care.

    Not the best episode but still good all the same.

    Well, I'm kinda on the fence. While I agree that he did come through in the end, his impulsiveness got them into trouble in the first place.

    Even all sarcophaddicted, he still has a way with the ladies, doesn't he?
    "Daniel, you dog you." (yes, I know, wrong ep)

    The moral of the story? There is no such thing as a free ride and even the sun burns if you get too much.

    Aha Daniel reminded me of a rich kid on Crack in this Ep..
    I'd have to say its one of the more boring eps of season 2.

    Watched this again yesterday. The woman really annoys me but it's a fun enough episode. Daniel going nuts always entertains me - especially the crazed look on his face when he punches the living daylights out of the guard!

    Indeed it does. Daniel seems to have a bit of a thing for offworld girls doesn't he.
    Some say that he has only one ear.
    And that he solved the Da Vinci Code in 3 minutes.
    All we know is he's called

    Ya, the girl seemed a bit....clingy. But I thought it was a good tech episode, showing the baddyness of the sarcophagus.

    OK, just watched this ep again. One question. When Daniel was talking to Jack about how hard the withdrawal is. Jack said "believe me I know what you mean". Was Jack referring to some addiction he had, if so, what was it, when did we find out about it. ? Somehow I missed that part or ep.

    I gotta say that I didn't like this episode from the first watch. However, when watching it again I started to appreciate it more. Though I still think that making Daniel a little bit crazier and his recovery a little bit more difficult would have added some depth to the story, for me at least.

    I like the fact that the "bad side effects" of the sarcophagus were introduced. It is an interesting concpet and a necessary one, I think.

    I thought it was a pretty good episode. I'm very interested to see if "we" start to develop anything with the naquadah.

    This was interesting. Great acting by Daniel/MS, he plays a nutso very well. But it was disturbing to see him like that, and what he did to the team. But I guess that was the whole point.

    Shyla creeps me out. Her off kilter crown always makes want to turn it around or maybe grab it and stomp on it.

    MS did a great job showing an addict in need of a fix (not that I'd know of course).

    I do love how the team comes through for Daniel in the end.

    And we get the building of the mythology behind Sam's abilities (sensing Goa'uld and accessing Jolinar's Memories) that come to play an important role later on.

    But overall, not really that great of an ep IMO.
