    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.

    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?

    They did ship it back where it came from. It didn't make any difference to the people seeing the bugs.

    Only after they decided to shut down the machine first, a move they seemed to deem risky but pursued anyway.

    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.

    okay, i know he didn't really say that to her (in those words ), but where in the ep did this almost dialog happen!? i even went to a transcript place to find that line (or close to it), and it didn't show up.

    An average and boring episode of SG-1.

    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?

    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!

I really recommend it. :]
    So looking that up now!

    Stole my post. As much as I love bugs and such, I'd love to see some other types of animals from that dimension. Imagine the birds that would eat those bugs!

    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...
