I cant wait to see what these ori got for us. This episode made me alot more excited for this season 9. YAY!!!!
I think I know where they're going for with this. You see, they want to make villains who are similar enough to Christians to piss off Christian protest groups enough to try to get the show banned.
It's like Grand Theft Auto. When angry mothers started complaining about it, sales went way up. So the Stargate writers are trying to get the same kind of press for Stargate, thinking ratings will go up. Brilliant.
These guys are just as over the top as the gu'ald but with less engaging personalities. I don't think the Ori are very interesting villains. And honestly, I'm not interested at all to see how this plays out. It looks to me like Ori won't be able to attack them directly, but they will be able to send armies (Because of the other ancients).
Wow...I just thought of something. In the Stargate world, there really *is* a war against men of faith! (Unlike the real world, where that's all a bunch of crap).
This was an excellent episode. The Ori scare me way more than the Goa'uld ever did. As Malcolm Reynolds once said "Nothing worse than a monster who thinks he's right with God." These guys aren't pretenders like the Gould, they are True Believers. Much, MUCH more dangerous.

ONE WORD AWSOME!!!!! I can't wait to read what you all think! I LOVE the acting it is so goooddddd!
Ack, O'Neill doesn't have enough TIG to make Major General. :b
One could argue that they represent Muslims, or Jews. Y'know, since they all preach the same things. Don't go labeling it anti-Christian half-cocked. But this isn't the Politics board, so I digress.
The alabaster Rings were pretty neat.
Oh, my, god! From beginning to end, this episode was amazing!
Man that ep rocked! The Ori are creepier than the Goa'uld and the Replicaters put together. I can't wait to see more of them.
Hey guys, Just be aware of the discussion of this episode but I am wondering if anyone else believes that The Origin has truely begun season 9 of SG1 and the way RDA was exited truely does allow for the show to continue with great ratings and stories.
I liked the episode, but omg, the Ori is one thing... "ANNOYING"
I forgot their exact 'phrase' that they used the most... something to the Ori, or whatever. That one thing annoyed me the most.
I'm so happy General Landry's arrogancy level went down a notch, my feelings towards him changed during this episode.
It was nice to see RDA.
I was impressed. They seem back on track with a great plot. Not that I wasn't very excited about this season but I'm definitely reassured now. Avalon 1 was Ok, Avalon 2 was better but this last episode really clarified the direction they're taking.
I really miss Carter though. Can't wait for her to come back.
"You know what would make a good story? Something about a clown who makes people happy, but inside he's real sad. Also, he has severe diarrhea." - Jack Handy
I thought Avalon was pretty decent. I missed RDA, but the story was okay.
However, I HATED Origin. Yuck!
Maybe I'll mellow, but after eight plus years of being a fan, I think I'm done.

I do too. That was the only real problem with the episode, no Carter. I kept expecting her to show up even though I knew she wouldn't.Originally Posted by MarshAngel
I know! I was also expecting our little smart super blonde would show up too! I think that was one of the few cons for the episode for me.Originally Posted by DANIquinn
I would have to disagree here. The little snippets of Jack in these episodes is a Jack I never knew. The guy looks half asleep. I love Jack but if he is going to sleepwalk through his scenes then he shouldn't be around at all. The word that comes to mind is "sad".Originally Posted by Elwe Singollo
On the episode, it was GREAT. Unlike some past seasons, this one appears to be getting better and better with each episode.
Interesting thought. So how are the Ori similar to Christians? Even if you draw the parallels to the Crusades and the Inquisition, that's hardly something I think current Christians would want to identify themselves with. It would be like them saying "Look at how horribly hypocritical we used to be...." And of course there have been (and possibly currently are) other religions that teach that all nonbelievers should be killed as well. I just don't see anything in the makeup of the Ori that couldn't be applied to virtually every major religion throughout history at one point or another. There probably have been exceptions, but I'm not an expert.Originally Posted by Bobthespirit
I think this is the drama that some folks have been looking for so far this season. Me likey.
The Characters from Bloom County were located to another world where they could live in Peace and avoid the wrath of Jeanne Kirkpatrick.

Yes, i can relate that the action is good. But i guess in all honestly when the Start of SG1 came around I was really excited and then i didnt like the way it started out. Still to this day my least favorite Season is Season 1 of SG1, with the exception of Major Story Arcs. As the seasons progressed the stories became better. Atlantis seems to of been the same way IMO. The Season 9 start is like a new show. Stargate The Next Generation if you will. Just give it time. As always... Hallowed are the Ori. Why wouldnt SG1 Season 9 will be just.
Maybe i'm stepping on some toes, but there's a little thread devoted to episode discussions, unless this thread is for a different purpose?
This was a great episode, but I agree with the Christian comment to an extent. Maybe they want to be a Blue state show? JK
Really though, they have set up great potential for this season through these first 3 episodes.
ehh i dunno ill jump over there from now on i just wanted to know if people still think the season will be a fluke like some do. Not really any peticulars
