    This sort of story structure is very much a matter of taste. I couldn't write something like this in a million years (I'm actually a pretty linear thinker), but I love watching it.

    This is easily in the top 10 best episodes and it does it without extensive CGI. The script and acting in this one were great. Seeing Christopher Judge be able to do heartfelt acting blew my mind. He has a great range of talent that we never get to see when he is Teal'c.

    And again the cameraman and director are amazing. The scene on the bridge (as firefighters) had epic technical organization. Watch that opening scene, watch this entire episode, again and pay attention to the camerawork and music. It's easy to not even notice it - when it's done next to perfect and you are drawn into the drama. The last few episodes have had much better than normal camerawork. Something must have changed. It's not because they got new equipment; they've just learned how to use it a lot better.

    This episode succeeds on a whole. It's not just the technical aspects but the dialogue, presentation, and well, we get to see Daniel for a few random scenes, right? That was a nice surprise. The way the script jumps between Teal'c's dreaming states and didn't explain it until the very end, was really cool.

    That is the point. It makes more sense the second time around

    In my second watch, it was actually quite funny, but still a little slow

    Like everyone else, this one confused the heck out of me the first time around. Knowing everything is a dream/hallucination up until the battlefield, you can enjoy the episode more and pick out all the little details. All the transitions were really well done. Great job writing and directing.

    Daniel again coming to his friends' aid. I like the reuse of the 'hang in there just a little longer' line, and I love Daniel's simple little piano theme.

    I love this most excellent episode! Christopher Judge was phenomenal with both his writing and acting! It was fantastic to see him as a regular everyday guy. I loved Jonas in the new guy apron!

    I personally liked the hopping around from dream to dream, but hey, I like Forever in a Day as well.

    Always great seeing Daniel and Bra'tac! Teal'c's love for Bra'tac is truly great!

    The Changeling is a good episode. Confusing as heck every time but a good episode.

    It's an interesting idea putting two dreams opposite eachother -- two opposite lives, different lives and yet very similar. It also moves the symbiote-dependency to a new chapter. We essentially do away with it and replace it with tretonin, which moves the story of the Jaffa and the rebellion forward into a new chapter, which is good. Can't stall.

    Beyond that, it's a pretty entertaining episode.

    Fun fact: I own the Jonas Quinn nametag, Corin Nemec wears as Fireman probie.

    How would you rate SG-1's "The Changeling?"

    Excellent
    Good
    Fair
    Poor
    Terrible

    I love this episode. It is confusing the first time between the SGC world and the firefighter world. I never once imagined they both were fake. Watching it several times, I can see why Tealc hallucinates. The one thing that bothers me is never address the tretonin dependency. Besides that, this is a rare excellent. 6 minutes 48 second

    It is so unusual to see Teal'c with emotions. Or face expression
    Good and interesting idea. Good to see Daniel again.
    It is interesting,that Shan'auc has appeared there but Drey'auc not.
