    I'm glad they packaged the episodes together because on its own Prototype is somewhat anticlimactic. It does give some excellent info on the Ancients though and cleared up quite a few things.
    The one thing it does prove is what I've always believed: Always listen to Daniel. It will save you much headache.

    Khalek was kind of hot. Love his accent.

    For the first time I begin to understand why everyone thinks Daniel's a little harsh this season but I still feel it's justified, especially after this episode. We finally have a guy who knows how to learn from past mistakes. Woolsey obviously isn't one of those.

    I guess we learned about anceints in both eps.

    Well, Prototype was, for me, boring. The little guy seemed too sinister for his own good. While it's always fun seeing a telekenetic person, it just wasn't as cool as it could have been. I keep getting the feeling that there's a whole new writing staff who needs to watch S1-7 of SG or at the very least, re-watch it.

    A few nitpicks:

    Why's Mitch gotta wear a hat? Jack's the hat wearer! You're only digging your own grave, buster!!

    I'm getting a tad sick of Teal'c and his arms. I mean, yay for skin but...really, does he believe in shirts anymore? And I don't mean those stripper shirts.

    It seemed awful quick for Daniel to realize the dude was a genetic clone. I'd have prefered it if Khalik had given himself away. Show me, don't tell me!!

    How did Carter know - or guess so quickly - that he heard them. Do genetic clones have a tendancy of aquiring super-ears? What's her secret? Did JM give something away when he said in his fake spoilers she's a secret empath? Hmmm?

    And WHY would Khalik use his oh-so-cool-and-not-the-least-bit-matrix-ey powers of telekenetics to use the keyboard to dial up the gate? The Asgard didn't. Linea didn't as far as I know... The Ancients certainly don't have to...whats up?

    An interesting bit of trivia, in the arabic language, the name Khalik, alternatley spelled Khaliq is a word and a name of God meaning Creator or Creation. I'm guessing TPTB did their research.

    I thought 4H was a bit anti climatic after Prototype, but Proto was intense.

    That was my second thought. "New guy" indeed. Even Oneill wouldn't have done anything that stupid. Haven't they developed off world rules by now with all they've experienced?

    rule #1. Don't touch wierd technology you don't understand.

    Was lam wearing a suit and if not, why isn't she infected? Wasn't she one of the first people to examine the off world teams?

    All Air Force personal are required to wear "cover" while out of doors so that is for realism, which Im all for. Funny they still wore black in the forest, but Walters wearing green in the SGC . But I guess they did want to be seen

    Man, that was an awesome episode. It blew my expectations totally out of the water. And how about that Khalek, huh? I thought the actor who played him did an excellent job. Tptb definitely did not let down in this one. This and "The Fourth Horseman Part 1" really reinforced my faith in the direction of this season.

    Yeah, the amount of bullets was awesomely unnecesary. I emphasise the awesome part.

    It's nice to have some good action sequences in SG-1 again. Right now BSG totally dominates in that field, but SG-1 has had some scenes where Teal'c just like unleashes on some people.

    Thumbs up Re: Prototype (909)

    Well done episode. Even though Sam was sent offworld without SG1 early on, the plot progressed to a team effort, including Dr. Lam, General Landry and Dr. Lee.

    Yes, Cam was a bit off with pushing buttons on unknown technology that, as Daniel reminded him, he couldn't read. Stark reminder of ...VALA! In truth, Cam was pretty much responsible for everything that followed after, but I don't suppose that will be a factor down the line.

    Naturally I loved Scientist Sam, hunting down the mystery of the oops in the Stargate. Technotalk, yeah! And there seemed to be a lot of interplay with Sam and Daniel on the problem, with Daniel speaking some babble pretty well himself. Nice. Liked the actor who was Khalek, great threatening presence.

    I haven't seen the second viewing yet, so will suspend anymore analysis. But it does look more like SG1 has arrived than any other ep so far.

    Just sayin'.

    Oh yeah, that was SG1!! Much, much better than last week!

    I guess tptb answered the "who is the leader of SG1" question: giving Sam SG5 to take on her mission, then Mitchell's "this is SG1 leader" ... well, it doesn't get much clearer than that!

    Sorry, have to disagree with others--O'Neill would have been just as likely to press that button as Mitchell; if not more so.

    Jackson's still harsh. I'm actually beginning to feel like MS is overacting. I'm just not liking this *new* Jackson.

    Thought Kalek was a bit over the top, but still liked him. Maybe because he's hot, or maybe because of the accent? Don't know. But, I'm glad he died. We definitely didn't need his brand of badness along with the Ori.

    All told, I LOVED it!!

    Not a bad episode at all. But I gotta say I think Daniel should look into a mirror before warning anyone else about poking into things they don't understand.

    And, y'know, there's a chance that Fourth Horseman will indicate that Woolsey was actually right about studying the clone being worth the risk.

    A really great episode. I think it really shows how much Daniel really personally hates Anubis. For him to be essentially channeling Jack with a "kill it now" response to this Khalek fella... Daniel's come a long way.

    I agree with all who agree that this was a good episode. They were a team in this one.

    Especially, Daniel's quote about Cam being the 'New Guy'.

    Daniel sure has put aside any excess compassion for compassionless villains. Not only his hatred of Anubis, but what he's witnessed of the Ori and their Priors. Reminiscent of Jack? A bit.

    Daniel is past the "let's study him/it/them" if he knows the dangers to others. It fits, as long as he doesn't get trigger happy.

    And speaking of triggers, WHY didn't they use bigger guns when they saw how bullets hurt Khalek? Assuming, of course, they got a chance to use them which they did at the end. They needed a Ronon gun; one shot, instant aeration, end of threat.

    Dan and Cam, taking down the baddie wild west style. Great shot ( ), a pun I did NOT intend.

    I enjoyed Prototype very much. Interesting and suspenseful story, good characterizations, great actiing from regulars and guests. I thought the Woolsey stuff was sort of contrived, but that's how I always feel when the realities of government oversight come into play in the show.

    I wonder why Cam still has a cut on his cheek -- did BB really cut himself filming Babylon? They don't usually show injuries after an episode is over.

    Ascend-o-meter -- funny!

    My only complaint is that this week, on top of the usual horrible sound quality my SciFi channel provides, there was bizarre jumpiness in the image, as if a computer somewhere wasn't keeping up with the buffers or something. Drag.

    Well done Alan on his first SG story!

    "New guy". .*LOL*

    Very good episode. Khalek was nice and creepy, and I was happy he didn't get away to come back over and over and over. Anubis was never a fav of mine - lets get on to other things.

    The "old timers" seem to be back to their normal selves, and the newbies have finally fit in.

    I love Friday nights.

    Okay. Why is EVERY villain in the series some super-powerful creature that takes desparate measures to fight?

    WHAT happened to the balance in the series? Even when the gu'ald were much more powerful than earth there was a semblance of balance. You got the idea that some brilliant strategy or trick could win for them. Not with the current villains. They're so much more powerful than us that it takes deus ex machina or giant explosions to kill them.

    Lack of balance between good guys and bad guys is making Stargate really bad.

    I don't know if the producers read this forum, or anyone connected with the show, but if you do: Please. In part two, bring back the BALANCE! If balance never brings back and the Ori are beaten by another feat of Deus Ex Machina, I'll be forced to personally consider the series finale to be either Lost City or Moebius. (I haven't decided).
