    Then they should have nominated him more often - he might have been able to win more.

    Amen to that.

    10 pts from 10 if I had to give a mark.

    I also would have liked a revisit!!!
    No I think he overdid and played is as too meek and mild.

    1 entire year... well anyway.

    After a small kerfuffle with Daniel Jackson's character and the actor leaving, then returning to the series: I'm so happy, so, so immensely happy to see Michael Shanks using his whole potential as an actor. I'm happy to see him speak to Sam as they always should have, this and the episodes before this one just...

    Man, this is the Daniel we should've always had.

    The music is so sad when the little boy talks to his father. It has slightly reminded me to the Casper OST. And it is very emotional when MS plays him in the second half of the episode. I am not a too sentimental type, but this scene always makes me cry when he talked how his mother was not selected. It is so sad. Well done Brad Wright.

    Spoiler:
    This episode could have been a good touch to the Universe if we could find out that their ship was one from the Novus what escaped from the black star. But I know they are galaxies away... Maybe the sleeping pods reminded be so badly to Destiny.

    Excellent episode with an interesting premise. So sad for the father and the son. But I don't feel bad about the Sovreign at all!

    Excellent acting by MS and TR!

    Maybe they should have contacted Harlan from Tin-Man, so he could have made new bodies for the passangers and separate the souls.

    No matter how many times I watch this episode, it continues to be excellent. There's some fierce acting going on by Teryl and Michael, and I love how well they played off each other. The dynamic is brilliant.

    It's a sad story with people who are still alive as a conscious, knowing they are dead and cannot return to their own bodies, and having to make the ultimate sacrifice. However, it never is said what actually happened to these people. It's pretty much left to our own interpretation.

    I imagine that Keenan's father is the lifeboat in the end for the others, or did they upload them all back into the mainframe, even if engineer 2nd rank made a compelling case with the water jug why that was impossible to do.

    In any case, Michael's acting is top-notch the way he switches between characters so easily. The best one, definitely Keenan to Martis. Poor Janet.

    Favorite scene: when Janet tells Martis in no uncertain terms she's determined to get Daniel his body back.
    You're not messing with this woman, dear Souvereign.

    How would you rate SG-1's "Lifeboat"?

    On paper, this episode shouldn't be as good as it is, since there is little action, and it's mostly two people in a sterile room, talking.

    But I agree, it's excellent.

    Which means, I suppose, that Jel hates it.

    You'd be wrong. I float between good and fair for this episode. The story is kind if weak. Its been done to better effect and I find the conclusion of the people in Daniel dieing rushed. The saving grace is how the characters in Daniel are well represented, although he overacts with the Soverign. 8 minutes 10 seconds

    Finally more space for Janet. I would like to see her more, it was really nice. Also Michael's acting and impersonations were great.
    This episode reminds me a bit of movie Split.
    One small thing that bothered me was lack of Jack. I understand that it was because od RDA, but I just can not help myself and think how it would be if this episode would appear for example in the season 3-4 and not season 7. I would bet that Jack would be the first guy, who would like to do some action and go back to Nostromo ..ehm Stromos . Not just sit in a room with blinking lights. ( IT Crowed refference ) )
    And also another thing- it would be SO great to see these people on another planet after SG1 save them. New infos about them, their technologies, history. It could be such a nice cooperation between Earth and their land.

    This was a great episode. One of the Janet's finest hour in the TV series and great for Michael Shanks (not for Daniel, as his character was hardly present) too.

    The story about this civilization was interesting as well and I would like to see them as well again. Stargate manages to make even one-episode races interesting, I could name the different races from last episodes which I would wish to see again as well (the one from Revisions, Tagrea, Pangeran).

    I agree, it would be nice to see more of Jack as well. As I said in a topic, season 7 did not deal so well with him being gone, contrary to S6 and S8. But I understand his reasons here.
