    I just watched Evolution part I again in syndication, and this just occured to me, assuming the Tok'ra take the Telchak box to make a weapon against the Kull Warrior (in Death Knell) then why didn't Selmak use the healing 'feature' of said box to heal herself when she was ailing (in Reckoning/Threads) ?

    Well, Selmak would only use it if it had been perfected so it didn't (in the words of the Tok'ra) "steal your soul." They've only had it about a year when Selmak dies; what do you think the odds are it's been perfected when the Goa'uld who first developed the sarcophagus couldn't do it in however long he worked on the dang thing?

    Perhaps Selmak had decided that now was the time to go as she had lived for a very long time.

    Lol. Good question, I don't think we ever found out.

    This was a pretty good ep and the super soldier idea is pretty cool. It also set up the second part really well, with Daniel and Dr. Lee captured and also finding out where the soldier's homeworld is.

    I enjoyed this episode. The super-soldier created and then given life idea is interesting. Although, I'm just so sick of the Jaffa and the Goa'uld. I hate the Jaffa lanuage and always laugh when I hear it.

    Fountain of Youth quest is interesting as well. Like someone said before, it's neat the way Stargate ties in Earth legends, myths, gods etc with aliens.

    I liked this episode. Nice to see a new strong enemy warrior.

    Good to see both Bra'tac and Jacob back and as always some funny moments with Jack. .

    Part 2 will be even better .

    The beginning of the super soldier.....very creepy without the mask.

    Always good to see Daniel in his element [archeology] and I like Dr Lee

    Jack is so funny as always.

    and then there are Daniel's arms.....*sigh*

    I have re-watched this episode yesterday. I still love this show and the characters. This kull warriors are so cool.

    Cool episode, and yeah, the Kull warriors are awesome. Very Darth Vaderish in a way.

    At the beginning of this episode, Teal'c notes that some of the Jaffa were shot in the back, and Bra'tac says "There was no honor in this fight." I'm really starting to get annoyed with the pseudo-honor that Jaffa seemed to acquire in the more recent seasons, such as not killing another Jaffa to sustain ones own life (Birthright) for instance.

    Yet, Teal'c is constantly slaughtering hundreds of Jaffa through the seasons in battle, even ones who retreat? It seems like they wanted to add some depth to the Jaffa that really isn't there.

    Maybe fleeing a fight was seen as cowardly, so they got no honor in death.

    Tuesday night, another ep of SG1...

    1. There was certainly enough hype with the Super Soldiers going into this ep.

    2. Sure enough, they turned out to be very cool, and at this point they were pretty much invincible.

    3. Not sure who came up with the idea of the Latino dodgy geezers, sort of works as a B-plot.

    4. Definately liked Jack's exchange with Raimus's Jaffa.

    Pretty solid ep.

    Raiders of the Lost Ark and Terminator and Star Wars… I could melt in a bucket of joy.

    Mucho mucho happiness to have Dr. Lee along for the adventure. (I just can't get enough Dr. Lee.) The falling in the hole gag was totally unexpected - very funny.

    Oh Anubis cooked up such a great baddie. A golem Darthinator grown in a vat. I really can't ask for more. So exciting to try to catch one.

    Did notice that its not an entirely accurate shot. Fortunate for SG1 that most of their enemies couldn't hit the broad side of a barn


    Trivia bit: the Toronto Blue Jay jersey on the guy cooking chicken as DJ and Dr. Lee walk into camp.

    Ah, yes, another villain escalation. Can't have the fans get bored by making the enemies realistic now, can we?

    Super soldiers are a teensy-weeny, itsy-bitsy bit better than the humanoid replicators, but only just. In some ways, I think the invincible enemies that we keep defeating anyway ruined the show.

    Super soldier! I love super soldiers. They are one of the many reasons why I love Stargate. And one of the reasons why I love Anubis.

    Great ep. Except I don't really like the parts with Daniel and Dr. Lee as much as the other parts.
