    Daniel Jackson, the good Samatarian, a nice woman, lots of bad, stupid guys and SG1 coming to create a new order - not exciting, not boring either. Nice fight though in the end.

    Why does Carter say "if" about and O'Neill question the accuracy of Teal'C translations?

    Is Teal'C not fluent in the Gua'old language?

    He was Aphopisis' First Prime - wouldn't he need to understand Gua'old to order be an effective First Prime?

    Teal'C has translated the language in the past so why doubt him now?

    Perhaps they are both worried about something going terribly wrong because they don't have more than some Goa'uld words to rely on. I don't think they really doubt T's translation. Double checking seems to make them feel better.

    I found this episode a bit boring, truth be told.

    It was an okay episode, it just dragged on a bit, especially the moments with Leda.

    Well, after the excellence of Lockdown and Zero Hour, this is a bit of a let down.

    It wasn't bad. It was an okay episode dealing with religious zealots and extremists ... If this episode was closer to 2016 rather than 2004, you could have made the comparison to IS. You know, if you don't believe what we believe, we'll destroy you.

    "Crimes against humanity", what O'Neill calls it. I'd say it's closer to genocide, but who's nitpicking.

    Daniel gets in the middle of it ... again... but luckily all turns out okay in the end -- sorta...

    2 flaws in the episode that I noticed:
    1) Leda has a full can of water in one shot, and a near half empty one in the next. Yet, it doesn't look like she actually poored the glass she's holding.
    2) When Walter is calling Daniel over the radio, or attempting to, we see the reflection of the gate in the control room window. However, we should also be seeing the blue shimmer of the eventhorizon since it's open... but there is none. The effect of shimmering light is there, but the gate reflecting in the window is a closed one, without an open wormhole. At first, I thought the iris must be closed but that would mean less shimmering effect in the rest of the room, and that's not the case.

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

    Genocide is a crime against humanity. The greatest one of all.

    Given that it was 3 years after 2001, the comparison at the time was Al-Quaeda, who you can compare to IS (or vice versa), so sadly, your comparrison is still vaild even 15 years on.

    Out of interest, how was the subject of this episode received at the time in the USA with that terrible day still fresh in everyones memories?

    Which he didn't actually say -- he just "crimes against humanity".
    But semantics, I guess.

    Meh. Its not bad but I kind of felt we have been here before. I'm also not a big fan of the random flashbacks. I do love Daniel's coded message. And yay for actually seeing SG1 actually going off the planet. I'm going fair just to be generous today

    It was the first episode of season 8 tht didn't fascinate me much. It was okay to watch but compare it to others, it was nothing special. It was nice to see more of Daniel, but it didn't bring me anything new.
    I have to say I would be happier if we can see whole team working together on a foreign planet in a foreign environment and with an interesting exploring idea than to see again a civilisation so similar to ours with really similar problems that we have or had. Nothing special.
