    1. The Lucien Alliance are still at the stage where they have more cheese on them than the average pizza.

    2. And Nerus could also have a suitably large pizza named after him.

    3. Have to say the basic idea behind this ep is a solid one though - stealing Stargates is certainly an original way to provide jeopardy.

    4. Suspect Teal'c was being sarcastic at the end there.

    OK ep if you can live with a load of cheese.

    "Undercover Rawhide"....just about sums it up....leather, laughs and a break from the intense Ori situation....I enjoyed it...but maybe I'm biased because Michael Shanks does the Leather Look so well...

    For the most part this epiosde is kind of boring. The whole corn as a drug seems kind of like something out of a comic book movie. Mitchell being able to pose as a buyer is laughable. I can not fathom how he thought he thought he was capable of being able fool the Lucian Alliance. What I really dislike over any thing is how we quickly got a replacement so fast. It was so sad seeing the Prometheus blowing up that the emergence of the Odyssey so fast just cheapens the previous ships destruction. The only upside is Landry deviousness in outsmarting a Goa'uld and I even liked the storyline of Ba'al stealing gates. The circumstance surronding that story were just undesirable.

    Actually, the Prometheus was still in commission when the Daedelus was created, so we had two ships. The Odyssey was likely being built as soon as the Daedelus was commissioned, and then was on its shakedown cruise at the time of "Ethon" and "Off the Grid". So, while it was sad to lose Prometheus and Pendergast, we still wind up with two working ships. Which were soon joined by the Apollo, and then the short-lived Russian ship and the Chinese ship, the Sun-Tsu.

    And I heartily agree with the bits about Mitchell thinking he was the only one qualified to act as a smuggler/drug runner/etc. If none of the others were suitable to do so, then he was sooo not suitable to do so.

Maybe because it can really happen in South America or that their performances as actors were better? I don't know but it sticks in my mind.
    I just want to say I agree.. I can't recall in any of the episodes a more real looking danger then daniel jackson/fellow scientist and the kidnappers.. they seemed pretty bad before they got hocked up on the alien device.. they didn't really need it (to be badder)

    Yes, lucky you. I almost guessed that. Well, not me when I came home then in the evening Stargate was over. So I got the DVDs - one after another as presents from my generous brother. And - most important - the Internet came to me only two years ago, consequently I started to post here after I had revealed its secrets - satisfying???

    The Urgo episode was one of the very funny ones for me! Just a few lines from the episode for good measure:

    - One man's ceiling is another man's floor
    - Don't run with scissors?
    - Au revoir it's French. It means ciao

    Also, the scene with Teal'c chugging an entire pot of coffee. And more

    Again, viewing dvds as I am from 13 years after the episode was done, I'd say it was kind of blah with moments here and there. Cam is kind of silly and stupid here, but that's the way he's being written. The end on board Ba'al's ship was more the typical Stargate story, and after that last episode, I really wasn't that crazy about the series, but I'm slogging on just to see how SG-1 ends.
    Cam's character errors is SG-1's cashing in on Farscape, so deal with it.

    I did like seeing Nerus again. Shame there was never an episode with he and Vala together. THAT would have been an unbeatable team. As for his end, saying to Ba'al 'but...I'm a very interesting person.' was the best line of the episode.

    I'm watching this episode on Comet TV, and noticed something.

    When Sam and the rest of SG1 are about to be killed by the Lucien Alliance, Sam has a split lip, blood on her face and injuries associated with having been beaten. When the team is beamed up by Colonel Emerson to the Odyssey and they are standing on deck in front of him, she has no marks at all on her face. But later in the same episode, the marks and bruises are back on her face.

    Also, there is a scene earlier in the episode where General Landry says he is going to Area 51 to interview Nerus. Then a shot is shown of cars driving past the entrance to the buildings and a man stepping down the stairs. That man is Colonel Reynolds who was a Major when that scene was shown in Season 2, Touchstone. So they re-used a scene from a previous episode.

    P.S. Love the scene with 2 gun Teal'c stopping the enemy.

    I didn't want to ask it the season 8 episode threads, but what has happened with that device what the Tok'Ra has used during the Replicator-Goa'uld war to follow the Ha'tak ships? Have they taken away after Selmak has died? Because that device could have been useful to follow the ships of the Lucian Alliance as I am guessing they were taken from the dead Systemlords / Replicators, so the beacons could be still on.

    I'm guessing, though, that the Lucian Alliance took over the Goa'uld's production capabilities and have been pumping out new ships in recent years. If the original beacons remain undiscovered, there's probably now a whole slew of ships that are untrackable since it's unlikely that the Tok'ra would be able to sneak them aboad new ships. In the past, the Tok'ra were able to pose as a Goa'uld underling. Now they'd have to pretend to be humans, which won't be very easy to do if the Lucian Alliance has the technology to screen people for symbiotes and uses it regularly. I'd also guess the Tok'ra probably wouldn't be willing to take that risk since there are so few of them and the Lucian Alliance are not the threat (or hated nemesis) that the Goa'uld were for them, personally.
