i agree i would love it to. i like weird and wacky there lives are never boring because of wired and wacky
One of my favorite episodes of this season. Creepy bugs that no one else can see, conspiracy theories, alien devices, what more could you want
Very X-Files once again. I did like the resolution of the story too.
man..I mixed up the disc and watched this episode thinking it's the first episode of the season.I was like "how that guy joined the team?!"
liked the episode,though
The overall story is a bit slow, a bit of a drag. It would have been interesting had reconfiguring the crystals produced visions of other types of creatures or humans in parallel dimensions rather than just the bugs. The scene with the grandmother seemed like extra filler.
In any case I see where RDA got his way for less on-screen time in the Season 6.
If the alien device was such an imminent threat, why did Hammond insist on finding a way to shut it off instead of immediately shipping it back where it came from?
I stuck a VHS into the machine.
1. Those bugs were very freaky looking.
2. And I couldn't blame them for thinking Jonas was going nuts.
3. Jack(to Sam) "I just want you to cum" Even my non-shipper mind wound up in the gutter!
Overall though, meh.
OK, sorry...not the exact line but...(I spent last night with a bunch of gutter-dwelling scifi fans in RL!)
[O'Neill and Carter walk down the corridor. Carter is still in BDUs while O'Neill wears civilian garb.]
I could stay.
We've all been cleared, sir. The base is clean. Jonas is probably suffering from stress. This is all still pretty new to him.
[They reach the elevator and O'Neill scans his key card through the reader.]
You could come with.
Fishing, Carter. I'm going fishing.
You know I'm planning on studying the artifact.
Yes. There's always something isn't there.
[The elevator arrives and O'Neill steps inside. The technician and an SF are inside.]
Oh, come on, sir. We both know the only reason you asked is because you knew I had something else to do.
No, really. I think you should come…fish. Fish some more.
An average and boring episode of SG-1.
There's not much else to say.
Tomorrow, Kinsey is assassinated.
Question: I must have missed something. How does one lose the ability to see the bugs?
If it's just touching someone who is 'cured', why doesn't the 'sick' person reinfect the 'cured' person?
Calculus and Alcohol don't mix. Never drink and derive.
The worst episode of an outstanding season for me. Even rewatching it for this rewatch didn't change my view of it.
I still don't see what the point of that device was really, bit silly having the ability to see odd bugs in other dimensions?! This device must have ended up in the Ancient 'seemed like a great idea at the time' catalogue of inventions, much like those weird and whacky inventions made through the late 19th to mid 20th century!
But I didn't even consider humanoid life till I read your post! Wow, you've got me thinking now...

"Thanks to denial, I'm immortal."
"A big 'Hello' to all intelligent life out there, and for everyone else, the secret is to bang the rocks together, guys!"
"Excuse me, barmaid? You seem to have brought me the wrong offspring. I ordered an extra large boy with beefy arms, extra guts and glory on the side. This here, this is a talking fishbone!"
"I'm Jack. It means... what's in the box?"

I don't know why everyone dislikes this episode. Its nothing special just a standard "SG1 pathogen" episode but its something different and unseen before. Aliens from another dimension wrecking amock in our world seems interesting. And it has me guessing on the solution of how to solve the problem of people on Earth seeing these lifeforms. The obvious solution did not work and I do not think another crystal arrangement would be the solution to fix the problem of seein alien lifeforms. I will admitt the conspiracy nutjob of Vernon seemed pointless and a waste of time. Although I liked seeing how Jack and SGC deal with an alien pathogen in the field. Its something not shown in the past. Just mentioned to happen off camera.
Not the best ep this season but not the worst either.
Not much else to say really.
It was mostly an ok episode for me, although I really don't like bugs
But it has started to bother me quite a bit, that in season 6 SG1 is not working together as much as before. I mean, of course they are still a team, but the episodes are made so, that Jack is somewhere else and the rest of the team is together. I don't like that. I don't mean I would expect them to be together all the time, but there is such an obvious change. And it's made worse by the fact that Daniel is not there. I do like Jonas, but one of the (many) strengths of this series is the interactions of the four original characters. That has changed too much at this point. I still enjoy the show a lot, but some of the "magic" is missing now...
