    I didn't mind this episode, though it was quite predictable. Humour was definately missing, but I did like the way Jack kept saying "Hello Nevin" though, and also when Jack and Teal'c are sitting down for a meal, I thought it was amusing seeing Teal'c with the napkin tucked into the top of his shirt so he didn't spill anything on himself, hehehe

In an episode titled "Stream of Consciousness" made in 1997, we see a world where people are linked together by a computer system called The Stream. And get this-- the people connect to the Stream via a small, moon-shaped device stuck to their temples. It looks exactly like the Link. The main character spent the entire episode trying to convince everyone else in society to disconnect from the Stream, as it was controlling their minds.

    "Revisions" seems a lot less original, now.

    I completely agree! I'm a fan of Outer Limits as well, and this was the exact same idea. What's more ironic is that in Season 9 "Collateral Damage" copied a Star Trek Voyager idea and guess who the writers were for both these episodes.... Joe M and Paul M.

    Okay so yes some idea's in Sci-fiction will be recycled/reused--- but they didn't even throw in a different ending or attempt to make it look different. Both shows are literally just a translation to the Stargate universe.

    I want to become a Stargate writer, I can just borrow ideas from other sci-fi shows....

    Daniel What about the actual buildings? Where are they?

    Ok, so I've found that the landscape scenes were filmed in
    http://vancouver.ca/parks/parks/vand...site/index.htm but I'm still not sure where the in-village scenes were shot. I don't believe they built that as a set (crazy, I know!) so I'd love to know where that little village was. Anyone know?

    It was in Fantasy Garden World in Richmond. It was a 'Disney' type European world complete with a castle and windmill. It closed a few years ago and the land has since been sold for development.

    They are still standing I think, as I'm sure they filmed an episode of 'Supernatural' there, the courtyard and buildings looked very like the ones in 'Revisions'.

    Here's an article about it in the Vancouver Sun a while back.

    I thought this was an average episode, not one of the best of season 7 in my opinion. Funny how quickly and easily they managed to interface a powerful advanced alien computer with an earth laptop, did it have a USB port?

    I really liked this episode it had a creepy vibe that was not scary but it was something you could not put your finger on. Although I have to say this episode Jack and Teal'c almost seemed to have nothing to do while Sam and Dr. Jackson did most of the research. I almost laughed as Teal'c and jack kept "checking things". Amanda Tapping and CH had great chemistry and I was not shocked at all to find he was on her new show with her.

    I found the ending sad when CH's character wanted Sam to tell him about the wife that was gone that he could no longer remember. All in all I would say a 7 out of 10 for me.

    Pallen (the scientist guy) sounds like Todd the Wraith (from Atlantis) at the end of the eposide - uncannily similar O_O

    Also the "Link" is very similar to the Replicator subspace network, when they update/sync, everyone freezes!

    Thats because Christopher Heridyall played both Pallen and Todd. He also played Hailing

    Did anyone assume that the people in the dome were midgets when they first saw the little guy at the start?

    This wasn't very original, computer mind control has been around since at least Star Trek TOS. Not a bad ep for all that, even if Teal'c and O'Neill didn't have much to do.

    I always enjoyed this episode. While it's not thrilling, it has a great group of guest actors and the story is one of the most original I've come across in sci-fi (I'm aware of the posts above saying the opposite!). While I can't claim to have read or watched all the sci-fi that ever existed, I'm aware of a lot and this story really stood out to me as something not seen before. Computers controlling people has certainly been done, but the particulars of this episode are very interesting - a computer that is not malevolent or evil at all, but is just trying to help the community survive (ironically, by killing people). For all intents and purposes it gives everybody a "software update" (or firmware upgrade!) which changes their perceptions and memories. I thought it was fascinating stuff, and I can't think of any other place I've seen a plot like that.

    Also notable is the first appearance of the very cool Christopher Heyerdahl within the Stargate franchise. And I'm sure I wasn't the only one who thought, "Look out! It's the ashrak!" when Peter Lacroix appeared.

    RATING: 7 out of 10

    To me, this episode could have plucked straight from the annals of The Twilight Zone. Especially those very weighty scenes where the thoughts, memories, and perceptions of certain characters change before our eyes. Very solid writing even if the directing was a bit cheesy.

    As far as repeat performances, Evalla the wife of Pallen was also cast before in the episode where they found the weather control device. She's the same actress who plays the Hybrid in the reimagined BSG.

    Tuesday night...another ep of SG1...

    1. Pretty standard plot, obvious filler ep.

    2. First appearance of Christopher Heyerdahl in the Stargate universe.

    3. "You're sick, being disconnected from the link has messed with your mind". *snorts*

    S7 was a hit and miss season. This was a miss.

    Thought it was an average episode.

    Christopher Heyerdahl makes his first Franchise appearance, this is one of a handful of characters he'll play over the years.

    Tomorrow, Daniel has mind overload.

    I've always liked this episode for its creepy element. The idea of a shrinking dome and a computer that compensates by killing off the occupants is a horrible thought. Makes it worse that the people are living a comfortable life in blissful ignorance in a lovely garden and town whilst outside their dome are the corroded remains of their people and civilisation in the poisoned environment of their planet.

    An enjoyable stand alone episode. I liked that the whole team was together on a new planet figuring things out.
