    That's what I thought too, but they're different actors, and different characters, so it's just a coincidence.

    Yea, that caught me a little, but it was such a short and unclear sequence. Couldn't be absolutely positive like the whole Narim thing.

    See, and I didn't like the thought of him even seeing the video. Way too much at stake for them to just start telling people even if it was her husband. Who knows how many ways someone could get their hands on the tape. It would have worked better if she told him to his face and told him not to tell anyone. Two other things: One- I for one did not notice that is was the same guy as that other dude. And I have all the DVDs. Two- I thought the whole scene was worthless. It was just in a montage and I guess we will see him in one other show, but I would rather the Doc not have any family (that we know of) and maybe let the “can I say goodbye twice?” episode be between McKay and Sam.

    Yeah I thought it looked like Apophis too. I rewound it on Tivo to double check. I think them using the actor that played Narim wasn't that big of a deal - kind of a nod to a well-liked character I thought.

    Actually, it does matter. It shows there's no integrity in upholding the, at least semi-major, characters of SG-1.

    And, furthermore, if they were going to re-cycle that actor, he deserved a longer-lasting role!

    Yes, Narim and The Revisions Guy (with the red hair). This was mentioned on
    the episode subthread. (Beat you to it!)

    I have to chuckle at the notion that TPTB thought we SG-1 fans might not
    notice character recycling.

    I don't understand why Narim is causing an uproar, but nobody seems to care that Dr. Weir went from a tall blue eyed blond to a tiny brown eyed brunette!

    When in doubt, I explain it this way:

    MULTIVERSE!

    LOL, seriously... I felt the same way. I was like, "Simon... NARIM!?!?" and then I clasped the screen. Not really, but it sounded more dramatic.

    WHA? Peter Matthews in there too? Okay I gotta see this for myself if it holds up.

    I can understand why people are a little taken aback seeing Garwin Sanford in a role other than Narim. I'm over it, but it was a little weird. The problem doesn't exist for people who have never seen Narim or are new fans to Stargate through Atlantis. It's only us die-hards who have to deal with it.

    As far as the Weir switch: It's one thing to take a new character that is barely developed and switch the actor playing her and another to switch the role of an actor who had previously played well-developed character.

    Ummm...does that even make sense? I'm not sure. Anyway, Garwin Sanford was only ever in three episodes of Stargate (as opposed to Tom McBeath's ten or Ronny Cox's nine), but they were critical storylines in the Stargate universe and he was a generally well-liked character. I guess TPTB liked him a lot, too! And why wouldn't they? He's a great actor.

    You know, there are other people in the world who look and act like Elvis... but they ain't Elvis.

    Seems reasonable to me.

    I know they couldn't disguise him with makeup aka a Vaughn Armstrong or a Jeffrey Combs for different roles, but hey, it's actually a blessing they've brought him back... SIMONARIM!!!

    I don't think it was explained if "Narim" was Weir's hubby or boyfriend, but one would think he was a boyfriend/significant other. A spouse? Well, sending a video to a spouse would be sooo tacky. I mean, "Gee honey, won't be home for dinner. Left you 12,000 TV Dinners in the freezer" till I get back." Uh, don't think so....

    Garwin will reprise the role in the episode "Home" so we'll find out.

    Would be nice if Scifi.com would at least give the poor guy a credit on their page. Wasn't there last night....

    Well, I think it's fair to say that the montage was a way to tell all the new viewers a little about what was going on. After all, TPTB can't assume that every viewer came from SG-1 (at least I'm sure they're hoping and praying there's some new blood).

    As far as Narim being in there, I thought it was great. I recognized him right away, and thought it was a cool throwaway bit for those of us who are big fans of the show. After watching shows like the X-Files and Buffy (not to mention Kevin Smith movies ), I'm used to seeing the same actor appear as multiple characters.
