I thought it was a good episode, but I wouldn't call it the BEST EVER.
Yah... Well maybe to him it might be
Amanda, "Wallow Central."
I wouldn't say it was the BEST in my point of view, but that's me. Although I enjoyed the humour
While I was watching it I kept thinking that a bit of comedy is good but the idea that two academics could save SG1 in the field is ridiculous. I thought it was hurting the integrity of the show, eroding the merit of SG1's pervious exploits and achievements. At the end I was relieved to learn that it was all a dream. Mind you, it could just be the ceremony that was dream but I doubt it. After knowing that I can now watch the episode and enjoy the comedy knowing that its just an academic day-dreaming. Having RDA deliver some comedic lines is one thing but this is a mostly serious, suspense, thriller save the world show and although a bit of comedy is good, it cant attempt to fit into all genres without losing integrity. I didnt start watching this show because I was looking for good comedy. Just my opinion.
I like that SG-1 wanted to be captured.
I also liked how the guy that plays phlocks in enterprise had a star trek joke.
I kind of liked this, but began to get a bit annoyed by Felger, after a while. I've always disliked butt kissers, especially when they're bad at it.
So the WHOLE thing was a dream OR what?
Depends. If you liked it, it was mostly real and just the penultimate scene was a dream. If you hated it then it was all a dream and hence Not Canon
i LMAO at this episode, i thought it was soo funny the way felger was parading around trying to act like Jack
(i laugh because i know this would be me had i been in his situation!)
i like the fact the show isn't so stiff with si-fi that they can't lossen up and produce fantasitcally funny eps like this
about one per season it seems which i thin is great, as much as i like comdey, si-fi is my home!!!!
I just saw this last night and it was soooo much better than Avenger 2.0.
I would be pleased if it was dream as a whole, cause of some strange things (like Tok´ra masked as a System Lord) but I think some of us are forgotting one imoprtent thing- HERAK. He is in future episodes so it is cannon.
just saw this ep today on dvd. i would definetly rank it among my favorites, but maybe not # 1. also especially liked felger covering his eyes and shooting up the ring room. and when he's done he casually says "area secure" lol. definetly the funniest ep.
Is it just me or does Felger look like Brad Wright?
LOL. I don't see it myself but i tell you who I think looks like Brad Wright. Doc Ock from Spider-man 2.Originally Posted by Blue Banrigh

Yes, it is canon and
TPTB are already on record (in various interviews and DVD commentaries) as stating that it was only the ceremony at the end that was a dream. Apparently, they regret that they didn't make it clear enough for some fans that it was only the ceremony and not the whole episode that was Felger's fantasy.At the end I was relieved to learn that it was all a dream. Mind you, it could just be the ceremony that was dream but I doubt it.
The episode may not suit the personal viewing tastes of some fans, but you can't get away with claiming the whole thing was a dream when the people involved in writing and directing it say otherwise. I think they'd probably know which it was.
Listen, we had General Ryan come on and do a little cameo for us, and he's a real live four star, one of the big guys. And I had to ask him point blank, because there's a certain irreverence that I bring to the character, and denseness, but while we were doing this scene, I just looked at him and said, "Do you have guys like me in...?" and he stopped me and said, "Yes, and worse, and you're doing a fine job, son."
Richard Dean Anderson
Yes! The first time I saw him I thought it *was* Brad Wright and had to look at the credits.Originally Posted by Blue Banrigh

It was all a dream.
There, see? no one else has to agree with me, but the episode only makes sense to me if I consider it all to be Felger's fantasy, and I tend to go with what makes the most sense to me rather than what I'm told to think by someone quoting one of many PTBs (who have a nice tendency to contradict each other anyway).
There are masses of plot-holes in it, and the whole conceit is so truly daft that it actually makes more sense to me to make TOG into a dream and then plug the (fewer and smaller) plot holes generated by that - such as SG-1 knowing Herak when they meet him later.
It's possible that the events in Other Guys happened... just not the way Felger "remembers" them. Maybe he and Coombs are the ones who got caught, or they tucked tail back through the gate and picked up the rescue story from whoever was ACTUALLY sent on the mission. Or maybe there was another team there and THEY managed the rescue in spite of Felger constantly getting in the way.
Lots of room for play, really.
