    I really enjoyed that Sam showed a bit of insecurity (temper) and that Daniel and Teal'c noticed. Also I LOVED the conference room scene Snippiness...new word of the day
    Kind of cool how Jack was letting them know that the world *really* does not revolve around SG-1 (even though we want it to)

    The plant growing every where was a nice and fun diversion. For an episode that had a lot going on this was a joy to watch RDA just has a natural flow that reminds me of why I like watching him so much.

    At first I wasn't sure how I felt about the whole *Letter to Hammond* thing seemed a bit cheesy at first but in the end it was tied in nicely. With the Asst. letting Jack know he was indeed good enough to fill the big guys shoes just in his own way.

    It may have been a bit easier to believe that this was all in a days work had we seen Hammond deal with THIS much before, but I guess with Jack things are always a bit over the top.

    The Ba'al interaction was fun yet I think I wanted more closure about Abyss but it is only an hour show. Loved the Cammy a$$ reference

    and in the end Making the decision to trust Col Carter and open the iris said volumes and then the conversation regarding her evaluation made me laugh. Again reminded me why I just like watching the two of them on the screen together
    Season 8 is shaping up to be a fun one and it looks like maybe Jack will not be used just for the one-liners!! and for THAT I am eternally grateful!!
    What Tame said. I enjoyed every loving minute of it.

    The episode also reinforced my rather deep seated feelings that Jack/RDA is the backbone of Stargate.

    I thought the same thing. This episode highlighted Jack's great gut instincts, natural leadership abilities and common sense smarts. I really expected the response from Jack (after the guy fessed up) to be......"yeah, I figured as much", not that he had heard about it from Hammond.

    But all in all I remembered why I really love Jack in this episode. Add me to the list who is delighted they're toning down the "Dumb Jack" stuff.

    One scene I forgot to mention that was one of my favorites was where Jack goes to the gateroom and sees Reynolds and the rest of the SGC teams assembled, ready to head out if Jack gave the word. RDA played the scene beautifully and it was a wonderful testament to the bravery of the SGC personnel, their confidence in Jack as their commander (which he needed at that point) and a nod to their "we never leave anyone behind" credo. Very nice.

    Loved the "Radar" impression at the beginning.Great timing!

    Jack locking the delegates in the room together like a couple of ill-behaved brats.Funny.
    I liked "Camel-a$$" and the little smirk he gave Jack ..."It was worth a try..."

    Thereis so much I liked,[I'd like to see "Cammy" back,though]that I can't list,but suffice to say it was well done.
    The zoom in on the "never mind" was a really nice touch.I guess Jack feels better about the job now.

    It's pretty good when they start referencing themselves (instead of Wizard of Oz and Star Trek/Star Wars all the time). I loved the "It's what I do" line!

    the best one is *look down at signature*
    O'neil: speaking of Anubis' secret base, did you find any cool weapons?
    Carter:.....no.....
    O'neil: NUTS!

    Your sig is a little bit spoilerly to those who haven't seen the ep yet. It's a good snippet, though. Just not one of my faves.

    Yes! YES! Excellent use of his time!

    Really enjoyed the MASH homage being a HUGE MASH fan. Walter definitely deserved some lines after 7 years and he played them with gusto!! "We are REALLY glad you are Here" cracked me up!
    I'm with you, my MASH buddy! I love Walter's lines! Remember "He's not like regular people." LOL!

    Kind of cool how Jack was letting them know that the world *really* does not revolve around SG-1 (even though we want it to)
    She seemed hesitant to stand up to Jack, and Daniel kept butting in. I was ready for Sam to give Daniel a look or something! I was thinking Jack was being overly cautious with SG1.
    The plant growing every where was a nice and fun diversion. For an episode that had a lot going on this was a joy to watch RDA just has a natural flow that reminds me of why I like watching him so much.

    I thought it was odd at first because we had never seen anything like it before. However, it did remind me again of frequent MASH episodes. I guess I had MASH on the brain.

    It may have been a bit easier to believe that this was all in a days work had we seen Hammond deal with THIS much before, but I guess with Jack things are always a bit over the top.
    I thought it was GREAT to see behind the scenes of the SGC. I guess now we know how Hammond lost his hair.
    The Ba'al interaction was fun yet I think I wanted more closure about Abyss but it is only an hour show. Loved the Cammy a$ reference
    I thought Ba'al was more intimidating than Anubis as a hologram. Loved the interaction between Ba'al and Jack, and hope to see more.

    and in the end Making the decision to trust Col Carter and open the iris said volumes and then the conversation regarding her evaluation made me laugh. Again reminded me why I just like watching the two of them on the screen together

    Amen!! WooHoo!!! Dr. Lee was great too! So far for me, this was the best ep. of Season 8.

    Great episode. The only thing I missed was the rest of SG1, but htis was basically a Jack episode, showing him settling into his new job. It was cool to see Major Davis, Reynolds and Dr. Lee again and the bit at the beginning with Jack and Chevron guy was great the MASH referance. It was cool to see Camulus (camal-ass) again, and I think Steve Bacic played it beautifully, especially the "prison" parts where he did the demeaned former system lord. I hope he could come back, but it doesn't look likely. I agree with Shadow, he's wasted on Andromeda.

    Favorite lines

    Chevron Guy: we are REALLY glad you are here

    Gilmore: But General O'Neill hasn't slept in two days!
    Dr. Lee: That's why you're going to tell him.

    Jack: Baal, of course I dare mock you.

    Delegate: You cannot expect us to share the same room!
    Jack: Not amicably... At first.

    Lee has been in a few eps, most notably Paradise Lost and Evolution, but he wasn't one of THE "Other Guys".

    The way the scene played I got the feeling Jack was fibbing....that he had figured it out but he laid it on Hammond for telling him. All through the episode they would cut to Jack when the asst. would ask something Jack thought was a bit off. So my first thought was once again Jack was letting someone think he wasn't as clever as he really is.

    Couldn't he potentially get Hammond in trouble by doing that? Or did he take Gilmor to be a sincere convert to the Cult of Jack Worship and trusted him not to tell his superiors that "Hammond warned him"?

    I loved this ep. I loved all the supporting characters: Reynolds, Davis, Walter (Chevron Guy), Dr. Lee, Gilmore and Stiler. I only wish Davis was in the show more.

    Especially when Davis, Reynolds and Jack where talking about a rescue mission. I like how they talked about using the Toríka poison. I always wondered what happened to it. Also talking about Abyss and even referring to the Atlantis base, that was nice.

    If the rest of the season is like this ep. then I will really, really love Season 8.

    Add me to that list!

    Jack has to be smart. To be a Colonel in the air force, you have to have a masters degree. I don't know what you need to be a general, but it'll probably be even more!

    Part 2 coming very soon!! (this is a fic btw, not the Fandemonium novel)

    What a GREAT EP !!! Lots and Lots of Jack. And we had the real Jack. He was smart, Sexy, ahead of the game, snarky, competent, dedicated, and very human. And he smiled a few times. Yep. Great Jack ep. Long time no see 'um. Hurray for GENERAL Jack !

    As for RDA. The man proved again he has a range in his acting talent.
