    Maybe they wanted to express how big is the pyramid inside, so the background is blurred for that particular reason. I know it was done a bit lazy, but it is not that bad.

    Here are some background infos about the Giant People :

    But this is based on a novel, so it is just "half-canon".

That's why it drives me nuts and why I think it's one of the few episodes with truly terrible special effects.


    And it clicks... yes, this.

    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.

    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!

    I was thinking it was a Mayan paramid because the giants spoke Mayan.

    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.

    3x21 Chrystal skull

    1.Daniel mentioned that he has got fears of height in 2x08 Thorís chariot, but he could walk in without hesitation here.
    2.Danielís 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.

    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.

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

    What the error finder has meant, if Janet checked Daniel's family history, then she would have known that his only living family member, his grandfather was locked up as they believed he has got delusions. Probably they were not planning the 3x21 at the writing of 3x04, but it felt a bit awkward.

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