    I really liked this episode, then again I love stories where there is a religious nut as the big bad guy.

    Amen to that. And the religious fanaticism to boot was a bit much. I get enough of this stuff on the nightly news. I don't need to see it in my entertainment too.

    Yeah, definitely getting sick of religious terrorists. Considering my own personal religious choice is free-thinking, I would like to think that SciFi could try to jump on THAT bandwagon for a little while. Let's step away from the religions fighting for the sake of an episode. As for Michael Shanks's acting, it was REALLY good, and I think that you could tell that while Leda was all like "I helped you, let me worship you now...." Daniel was kinda like "Backing AWAY from the helpful native... back away... don't let it smell your fear..."

    ^_^

    Sorry, I'm high as a kite from Ginger Ale and NyQuil, pardon me if my comments start to be a little loopy.
    Urgo: *Wff!*
    Daniel: Woof?

    Daniel: *muffled* Dis ith da beth pae I'b ever had!

    Jack: And Daniel said he wanted you to go with us to make sure this works?
    Daniel: I didn't say that.
    Nick: Yes!
    Jack: Okay!
    Daniel: Nick! You're taking advantage of me!

    Weir: That's the bright side?
    Daniel: More of a slightly less dark side...

    Actually, I saw Daniel's reaching out to touch her face as encouraging her, not discouraging. Maybe you overheard me telling him to back away.

    LOL... It was you! It was ALL you! I could hear you from my room, and in my heightened state of Daniel fandom I THOUGHT it was him! Well, that cleared it up! Well, either way, there was no romance, just a maybe-possibly-ifDanielwasstuckthereforever chance! ^_^

    It was a good daniel episode, reminded me of past eps though...
    Now that would've been a good twist, because I was expecting the same third-act revelation about Seth. And even without that, they totally dropped the ball on Saron's visit to the SGC. (Highlight for S4 "The Other Side" spoilers)

    Jack had no trouble killing Alar because he was a Nazi-like racist monster. Saron's a crazy hyper-fundamentalist in roughly the same position, and they just let him waltz in and out of the facility like any other guest? We've treated System Lords worse than that! Guess that's what happens when Daniel isn't around to argue on behalf of humanity.

    The episode was just so by-the-numbers. When a clip show like "Full Disclosure" is more entertaining than a whole new ep, we got problems, folks. Merely average shouldn't be good enough at this point.

    Unhappy Re: Icon (805)

    I was disappointed with this episode. I found it too be very lack luster, boring and did I say boring? I forget, who wrote it?

    My voice sounded deeper than usual because I was flanging it in an attempt to use my Spooky ShadowPowers to get Daniel to listen to common sense and back away from the woman, but he never did listen very well...

    Not their most inspired episode. I agree that it was boring. I ended up concentrating on my knitting during most of it.

    I thought the same thing. I was definitely expecting his eyes to glow at the end.

    I'm definitely in the minority here but I'll say it anyway: Finally! An episode I really enjoyed from start to finish!

    This is a classic Stargate SG-1 story: innocently arrive on planet via Stargate, create a problem then do what's needed to fix it. All the acting and visual elements were right on target for the story they were telling. The few negative points I noticed were so minor it didn't matter.

    I know this is going to become one of my rewatch favorites. Thank goodness for VCRs now and DVDs later.

    Maybe there is some hope for Season 8 afterall.

    Yeah, as this episode proved, Daniel seems to have NO common sense when it comes to the female gender... we'll have to teach him a lesson by the next episode. Using your Shadow Powers and my Kat Goddess Powers, it MIGHT JUST WORK! *Mad supervillian - I mean, superhero - laugh*

    The ironic thing is, I've been complaining that Stargate needs more eps where SG-1 actually manages to screw things up instead of saving the day, but when we finally get an ep with that (sort of), I don't care for it. I'll have to be more specific next time.

    I loved the off-world spinning gate, forgive me, as I've missed Zero Hour, but that was the first off-world spinning gate ever, right?

    Daniel: Niet.

    Daniel: What? He asked if we were Russian spies and I said no........oh.

    Specific is good. Like, maybe one where everyone's still involved.

    What do you mean? This is the first time we've seen a gate other than Earth's being activated, with the spinning and everything? I don't think so.

    Wasn't Daniel suppose to speak Japanese or read something in Japanese in this episode? I'm pretty sure Joe Mallozzi said it was this episode...did I miss the scene or did Joe get the name of the episode wrong? Which can happen we are all human, well except Teal'c he's Jaffa. NOT Jaffar!

    Pet peeve of mine!

    Yeah, I think he got the name of the episode wrong, because, I'm studying Japanese, and there wasn't a SINGLE word of it. Maybe there will be further episodes with Amaterasu, considering Mallozzi also mentioned her and the fact that Daniel was speaking Japanese together.

    Ouch! And how can someone write Jaffar and not J'affa?

    I don't remember ever seeing it spin before.
