    I think his first appearance was season 1's 'Solitudes' ... not 100% though.

    Yeah I remember seeing him in an earlier ep as well.

    I think this is a great ep. Full of emotion. Great performance from RDA.

    Jack and Teal'c's relationship has always been my favorite of the show. This episode is one of the reasons why. Some great moments between the two.

    This episode has always been one of my favorites, for many of the reasons already listed:

    The opening scene -truly 'alien'
    The entity in the orb -also very 'alien'
    RDA's acting -it was easy to believe the pain he was displaying.
    The effects with the lighting and the purple glowing trails up the walls.
    One of the best lines in SG-1: "Undomesticated equines could not remove me"
    The cute moment when Daniel tells Sam about Simmons having a crush on her.
    Sam holding Jack's hand and asking him to trust her -even while leveling with him that he might not survive.

    The one second to spare on the self destruct I could have done without -Jack hates cliches after all...

    Its a filler and a bottle episode and I think it shows.

    I find the episode quite dull. Nothing ground breaking about the episode. Nothing new is learned in plot arc and the development of character interaction. I find the plot overly simplistic and done before. The only interesting part is the alien talking to SG1 from Jack's body.

    This was an okay episode I like that it showed the SGC has to be more careful about what they bring back to Earth from now on. One thing I never understood was the point of Graham in the episode.

    This is one of my favorite episodes, and always has been. I noticed quite early on that my favorites were all what I call "torture Jack" episodes (Cold Lazarus, Solitudes, Heroes, Lost City, etc.).

    ETA: forgot to mention that Lt. Simmons shows up in a season 6 episode, too. I loved the fact that on his next appearance (which is in season 2), there's no mention of how sick he was. I like that "take it for granted" attitude.

    I suppose the appearance of Graham was an effort to show a bit more of the support staff in the background at the SGC. Siler and Walter became more of a feature as time went on in an effort to redress this issue I guess. I suppose it was to show the wider effect of what something SG-1 brought back to Earth and the possible consequences.

    Another Sunday afternoon...another SG1 ep to catch up on...not sure if I've seen it since then or not.

    1. Seeing SG1 on a lunar surface was certainly a change.

    2. Couldn't rewatch the ep without remembering what Chris did in the suit.

    3. Ah, Graham Simmons, this is where he showed up...

    4. Forgot about all the red herrings and the auto destruct.

    5. 10 seconds to go and the 'still' got the codes in? Even I couldn't type that fast, particularly under that sort of pressure!

    A decent little standalone.

    Good episode with amazing quotes and even more amazing acting by RDA. You could feel his pain and desperation when he was stabbed by the alien device. When the device inserts itself deeper, his cry of pain is heart wrenching. Some of the best things to come from this epi were the quotes. Oh! and the banter between Sam and Daniel over Simmons and his crush...which he could hear
    *Sam "could have been active since neanderthals were the still the dominant species"
    Jack "Ahh that takes me back"
    *Sam "do you think it could be a booby trap?" Teal'c "Booby?"
    *Jack "You dont have to stay here" Teal'c "undomesticated equines could not move me"
    Jack "Wild horses Teal'c. It's wild...that's a joke. You told a joke. Don't make me laugh"

    The undomesticated Equine/wild horses joke was so funny. Teal'c learned fast. His loyalty to his best friend Jack really shone through. Sam's struggle to find a solution to help Jack and the planet was touching. Sam never gave up, but kept trying different things until she found the right solution. "It won't take us without a fight, Sir," showed her strength and determination, that if she had to go down, she would go down fighting. Sam is truly a soldier with great courage.

    I'm not a fan of the Simmons side-story of him having a crush on Samantha Carter. Just seems tacked on. Why should we care for this character? We shouldn't. RDA gives an outstanding performance though and it was great to see the friendship between O'Neill and Teal'c grow stronger.

    This episode is pretty good, another illustration of how close the team has gotten.

    OUCH! That spear-thing popping out always makes me wince. Poor Jack!

    Those blue, glowy lines going into the walls are just plain freaky...*shudders*

    "Undomesticated Equines," LOL! One of Teal'cs best lines.

    Good episode.

    Another ep I've only seen snatches of so it was nice to see it from the beginning.

    they took WAY too long to get something under Jack's feet. The UV unites made Mr.MC shout "they're Daleks".

    Poor Graham, "what's happening to me" how come the doc didn't shout something like "isolate him"

    Not a bad ep though, and some nice team bonding.

    ETA: Mr.MC shouted - when everything went black suddenly: the alien life forms switched it off at the wall. That's elementary.

    2nd ETA: why would the Ancients have put a gate on a primordial world?

    Well, that was some message in a bottle.

    Again not one of my favorite episodes really.

    Graham is cute...
    And Sergeant Davis' visible gulp at the end when the selfdestruct is aborted with mere seconds to spare.

    "Undomesticated equines could not remove me." -- still makes me giggle.

    Also, in the beginning in the wide shot there's no Malp rolling behind or in front of them. Nor is it behind or in front of them when they enter the structure. Carter mentions that something was emitting an EM-pulse, thus not knowing what is emitting the pulse. They decide to take the orb with them, Teal'c picks it up and poof, all of a sudden there's a Malp. It must have appeared out of nowhere.

    I also caught myself trying to find camera crew in their visors' reflections.
