    It also reminded me a bit of that ep where they brought back the rebel SG teammates to fix the device they'd broken which shielded the city. Drawing a complete blank on the name... Grogan was in it.

    Heehee. McKay broke the ZPM. Beckett's never gonna leave him alone about that. ^.^

    No. He didn't break it. At first, he thought he may have broken it, but then he realized that he just didn't know how to initialize it.

    I think that the episode was the Sentinel...and I liked this episode...it was kind of the first exploration mission that they have gone on...and of course yet another greek mention with the kid Ares(wow, he was a war monger ) This had more of a early season SG-1 feel do you agree. and again I get so so stuck on their opening song

    Yes. Sentinel. Thanks.

    Closed Captioning spelled it "Aries" but yes, he was pretty war-like, wasn't he? Or yet another religious fundamentalist type. *rolls eyes*

    Definitely an early-season feel, with a heavy smattering of the eps already mentioned. At least this time the plot sounded a little more rational than when they did it in Revisions. Ye gods, I hated that ep...

    Anyone notice that the bows from the bows and arrows are plywood and you can really notice the plies at the ends of the bows where props cut them out of a piece of plywood?
    Causality should not be taken lightly.

    Revisions + Logan's Run = this episode

    Still a good episode, but if anyone from SG1 were there, they probably would have punched McKay in the face for what he said back on Atlantis.

    I'm getting more used to him now. It was cute when he gave the chocolate to the kids. I think they're still trying to establish that he's the "youngin'" of the group, but they're going slightly overboard on him acting childish. Although in this ep, he wasn't as bad.

    I sincerely doubt that anyone from SG-1 would have punched ANYONE in the face for saying what was said- even if it had been McKay.

    I actually got a Shades of Gray vibe off the confrontation with Weir, except in McKay's case, he was completely serious...

    I think McKay was right. We needed a ZPM. We still do.

    True. I agree with McKay too, but I think it had to be part of his development to be shot down by Weir. He knows he's correct, but he still has to follow orders. I doubt it's something he's used to.

    Speaking of those bows, did those crossbows look exactly like the ones from Double Jeopardy?

    These villagers seem very hostile for people who've lived in peace for 500(?) years. Living without an external threat for so long, you'd think they'd lighten up, maybe question their rules, sneak away (as in Logan's Run?)

    And if the shield was put up to protect these people, why set up such a horrible way to control population size?

    Not much to like in this episode - except for McKay making the kiddies cry.

    I wondered why people wouldn't sneak away, but from the way that the others acted they would hunt them down anyway. I don't think they actually lived in complete peace, since everyone knew they were going to die at 25.

    Actually IMO, I think they did live in peace. You have to remember their way of looking at things is totally different from ours. I think many of them died happy, just knowing that they were helping save their people. (Though I'm sure some of them had second thoughts) I think most of them just accepted it as how things were. It had been done that way for as long as they could remember and that was how they were raised. Though I totally agree with Sheppard and the others trying to convince them that they didn't have to die.

    This was a pretty good episode I thought. I loved McKay with the kids and when he mentioned Carter and there great love in the teaser. Ford with the kids given them chocolate was hilarious, though I still feel he is suffering from the same thing Ensign Travis Mayweather of "Star Trek: Enterprise" does. The fact that he is just there. Ford is the least developed character so far. I liked seeing Lt. Elliot again. The one kid that was sent after McKay and ran back to tell them the device worked again seemed familar. Anyone else reconginze him?
