Probabily a gaff..
I love this episode, was watching it the other night.
I realised though that the whole mine in the back of the cargo ship idea didn't really seem to make sense... I mean the whole point was that the mine had to be oblivious to the ship or it would explode, i.e. touching off of it would make it go kablamo. But when they ring the mine on board, why does it just float in mid-air and not fall to the floor? After all, it's suddenly in an artificial gravity field (not its usual environment). It should've dropped, banged off of the floor and killed everyone right?
lol. still, ignoring that it's a great ep!
A classic Teal'c episode, only Teal'c could make a Jaffa turn against his god while he was being tortured. On a separate note if the Tobin were advanced enough to create all of those mines how were they wiped out. I have no doubt that the Goa'uld could, I just wonder how it was done. My guess is that they suffered a fate similar to that of the Atonieks in that their technology was their downfall. On yet another note, how did Apophis gain such a large fleet all of which had cloaking technology. Did Apophis gain that technology on his own or did Sokar have possession of cloaking technology before Apophis killed him.
amazing fx! love the ships, cloaking, floating mines.
i am not into torture scenes. poor teal'c.
i do hope heru'ur is really dead. he's not an interesting villain for me.
best funny moment: jack looking like an excited kid when jacob told him to fly the cargo ship. and then later on trying to shoo the mine.

Great episode! I hate to see Teal'c being set up, betrayed and tortured, poor him. Interesting interactions between Daniel, Sam, Jacob & Jack: Jack is always fun to have around, of course!
Another great episode from season 4 !!
Poor Teal'c but he never gave up. And Heru'ur is dead , never liked him.
Cool scenes with Jack, Daniel and Sam , loved it .
The best episode with Jacob Carter I have seen so far .
Rating : 8 / 10.
Teal'c was really cool in this episode. He really shamed out the torturer. Jack was funny as well though this is to be expected.
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
I love episodes where a) Sam and Daniel get to geek!out together and b) Jacob shows up. So, Yay for this ep!!
i like that to
I love any episode with Jacob but ugh Apophis again? Won't he just go away???
what happened to the supposed tok'ra operative on apophis' ship
R.I.P Stargate 1994-2009
Great Teal'c ep! And I loved seeing Jacob again. The mines were cool.
Teal'c, though a fictional character, is a wonderful example to follow when it comes to standing up for what you believe, no matter the cost. This great and awesome Jaffa warrior was willing to give his life for his cause. I think that we all can learn from Teal'c's example in this episode.
Rak'nor's conversion was great to see, and Jacob, Daniel, Sam, and Jack all working together was also good. Another excellent episode about Teal'c.
For the third time I'm the first Rewatcher to catch this ep...
1. Interesting starting the ep on Chulak.
2. Raknor. Now I can see his gradually turning to Teal'c's side but first time round I was stunned by first his betrayal then switching sides.
3. Jack...was always going to be watching his team's back. He doesn't trust the Tok'ra.
4. Apothis's remark needed no translation "this is what happens when you take the mick out of me!"
5. Exit Heru'ur - was surprised he got scratched given that there weren't many alternative bad guy to Apothis at the time.
Not enough story and too much torture.
Calculus and Alcohol don't mix. Never drink and derive.
Liked this episode.
Terok was a great villain, shame that they killed him off. The Visual Effects were great as well.
Stuff from the commentary:
- During every take, when they enter the control room, Amanda (not Carter) squeezed the butt of Siler's Assistant (aka Martin Wood, in his episode cameo)
- There was a lot of discussion how much a pain the Visual Effects were in this one.
Monday, Hammond Steps down.
