    I agree, Dana Jeanne. I wish they'd do a follow-up episode. I'd like to see Daniel reunited with his grandfather. Poor Daniel. He has no relatives left besides Nick.

    I'm a Maya archaeologist, and I provided the ancient Maya translation for this episode. Don't look for me in the credits, "all I got was a lousy t-shirt" (seriously, they wouldn't even give me a hat after using my Ph.D. level knowledge of ancient Maya, just the t-shirt). I'm not dissing the episode (although I was not as impressed as other episodes), but I really wish they'd have done more with the ancient Maya in this series. There is sooooo much ancient Maya mythology and history that would fit into SG-1 mythology! Hope everyone enjoyed the episode, though. I worked for a week on how to translate "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" into a language that is not spoken any more. Just shows how much detail is involved in every episode of this show.

    P.S. I always thought that they were trying to name Nick after William Bullard - a famous Maya archaeologist from the 1960's who worked in Belize.

    I like Crystal Skull. It was my introduction into the world of Stargate. I don´t think that it was a perfect episode but an interesting look into Daniels past. I would love it, too, if there would be some more Maya mythology in the show. The problem is that I don´t think that we will have in the future very much mythology. The PTB decided that they want have a X-Files/Star Trek mix and there is no longer very much place for the history/archeology/mythology aspect.
    And it´s interesting to meet someone on this board who is archeologist. I think it´s very fascinating ocupation.

    Maybe they'll remedy that for the ninth season.
    Yes, I really do look like (a younger) Daniel. Don't believe me? Look for yourself.

    I was just thinking, if they go back to visit Nick maybe we see what it looks like outside of pyrmid when they are out of phase from the skull. Are there other people living there? Will Teal'c become out of phase with them since he has no symboit?

    The scene with Rothman trying to get zapped by the skull was hilarious

    Also failed artist, failed priest, and failed grade-school teacher.

    I wonder if the giant ghosty person is a Furling. I hope they bring them back in a future episode. After all, they are enemies of the Goa'uld

    Yea me too. They seem to have some real power and technology. Hopefully it isn't another one of those 1 episode story lines like so many are.

    Yeah, I used to have the Knox lead guy and the quote was, "Someday you will realize your way is not the only way." I could be a little off on that quote...I found too many people had that avatar so I switched, I just really like cool SG-1 quotes.

    I agree. This was a really good episode and very entertaining. I thought of Patrick Swayze in Ghost, as well. I said Daniel needs to go on the subway and find that guy who can teach him how to move things.

    Anyway, that also made me wonder about the floor, stairs, sitting on the bed, etc. I always wondered about that in Ghost, as well.

    Before I saw the giant alien, I thought Nick's description kinda sounded like the ascendeds, (Oma Desala, etc.), except for the giant part.

    That part reminded me of the Kirk/Spock dialogue in Star Trek 4, when they are in Gillian's truck discussing what to eat.

    I hope they didn't do that. I'm new to SG, watching on the DVD's. The mythology and exploration aspects are some of the things that really set Stargate apart from some of the other stuff you mentioned. Why do production companies/networks always have to dumb-down things?

    This was great I like the whole exploration thing. It was a good story and daniel was funny. Nick was very good as well, him and daniel made their relationship seem real.
    The pyramid was cool and the giant aliens were .....well giant! I wish they could have gone back to this one even if it meant the giant aliens were too busy to help us. Mind you with most SG aliens it would have meant us helping them!
    *Watch out for them nintendos* as jack would say!

    Yea, it was supposed to be a trade rite? So Nick should have come back to share his newly learnt knowledge.

    Thumbs up Giaant Ay-liens

    That's a perfect way to put it, though I have no clue what "Dänikenian" means. I adore these archeology episodes - this one, "The Tomb" and "The Curse" are some of my very favorites. The Giant Alien was SO cool (mad props to Mayaboy for the translation!) and it was fun having Daniel out of phase from everyone else. I think it would have been great to have him see what kind of mischief he could cause as an invisible man, but the episode had enough humor as it was. I love the scene where Jack flops off the bed, as well as Daniel's "Wait, what, that's it? What ever happened to staying up all night? ...I'd do it for you..."

    But my favorite exchange in the episode was near the end:

    Nick: Now ve must vait for de giaant ay-liens.
    Jack: ...That just has a nice ring to it.

    And unlike many, I thought the cavern shots looked great. It didn't look real, but it did look cool. Like...I dunno, like SG-1 was walking through a minature model or something.

    The only problem is the ending. It seems like it got cut off because the ran out of time. It leaves us wondering what happened next. I figure it's something like:

    Daniel: Thanks...grandpa.
    (Awkward silence)
    Carter: So now what? The script just kinda cuts off.
    Giant Alien: Yeah, so...if you ever need me, just drop me a line. I can reach stuff on the top shelf...and.......stuff....
    O'Niell: Okay, cool. Um. So, be seeing you around then?
    Giant Alien: Yeah, yeah. Watch out for Nintendos on your way out. Heh...heh.
