    Same within the UK. It can be aired, but it has to be after a specific time. Generally these sort of programs air around 12AM so kids are generally in bed. But the thing is a news channel with nude presenters? That's just stupid.

    Earth Symbol season 1 children of the gods

    I dont know if this has been asked b4 but i recently bought seasons 1 to 5 on dvd and after watching children of the gods after the opening few mins can anyone tell me how the Goa'uld managed to activate the stargate with no dhd or knowing that earth had a dailing computer?

    There is a remote hand device which can be used to dial the gate, currently we only know it dials back to the planet of origin.

    Though if i remember correctly, we see a shot of a Jaffa in the control room dialing out, using the dialing computer. I could be wrong, but i think i recall that happening. I'll check, and if its there, i'll capture it and post a pic of it.

    I don't think that's in there. The hand device is the best theory, but we honestly don't know for sure.

    Personally, I subscribe to the "they dialled out manually" theory. It's plausible, and it doesn't require Apophis to posess some unseen piece of technology.

    Yeah but how did they get the power? Surely a year after the first mission the Stargate is gonna have zilch residual juice.

    The first episode is very rarely the best. Welcome to the Hellmouth is good but there are better episodes of Buffy. Premier is strong on its own terms, but Farscape got much better. A series usually hits its sweet spot when the writers have the characters and dynamics really nailed but before the ideas get stale.

    Well I'm not quite sure how long the power would last but, General Hammond mentioned they dailed Abydos after the first team returned. They could not establish a lock, so the gate could have kept it in storage.

    Thumbs up Re: Children of the Gods (101)

    I love this episode. I can't say that I've ever seen a pilot for any other show (cut me some slack, people; I just now figured out how a remote control works), but I'd assume that this was one of the better ones, as pilot's go.

    What was good:

    a. Jack's introduction. Firstly, I love RDA in the role; he plays it WAY better than the guy from the movie (who was he, anyway? Kurt Russel? Something like that?). The movie lacked Jack-style humor, and in my humble opinion, it could've used it. I love Jack's quirky mind! Anyway, I thought that the tissue box was hilarious, and Jack's admission that his report might not have been "entirely accurate".

    b. Sam's introduction. This woman rocks! Being something of a feminist, it's always wonderfully refreshing to watch someone petite and blond verbally bash someone over the head (one of my hobbies, but one that I - alas - don't get to devote as much time to as I'd like). Go Sam! (If they kill her off-permanently-I'll have to hurt someone.)

    c. Daniel. Dude, cute and smart. Thanks to MS in the role, I've managed to get a friend (who's traditionally militantly anti-SG) to watch the show with me on occasion.

    d. Skarra. How can you NOT like that guy?

    e. Apophis. A guy that I love to hate, especially since he's become a recurring nemisis throughout the show. His hat from the dungeon scene cracks me up; Mickey Mouse, anyone?

    f. And of course Ferretti, Kawalski...you know, just about everyone else.

    g. Everything else.

    What wasn't so good:

    a. Just out of curiousity, how'd Apophis dial back to whatever hellhole he came from? The 'gate room is noticeably lacking a DHD, and I don't think that he's Nox enough to be able to mentally dial (or however Lya did it in "Enigma").

    b. The scene with Sha're's implantation. Look, I know what they were trying to get across--but I think it could've been handled a little bit more tactfully. Even though it was nonsexual, that little sequence has made getting friend's parents to allow their kidlets to watch extremely difficult. Just a scene that I thought needed a little work.

    c. Kawalksi's glowing eyes. I liked that guy, darn it!!! "The Enemy Within" was crushing!

    Overall, a wonderful ep. A lot of character establishment needed to be done in under and hour and a half--and they did it brilliantly. Lovely.

    Stargate Re: Children of the Gods (101)

    I have a question. I just got this episode from my friend (so itís probably downloaded) and I was watching the part where they disrobe shakaka or what ever her name is. Anyways once they disrobed her she was nude and I saw it all. Was this in the original?

    Yes, it was. When Stargate SG1 first aired, it was on a premium cable channel. Because Showtime's a premium channel, nudity is allowed. But since COTG aired in syndication and now on the SciFi channel, that scene gets cut.

    Ah, the ever present nudity question.

    Yes, it was original. In later rebroadcast on other networks and channels that scene was edited out--as I believe it also was on the original VHS release of the episode. Some other episodes were edited for language or jokes, for instance the season finale had a reference to Showtime that is usually edited to say something else as well.

    I doupt that they could have gotten into the control room, or dialed out from there. The computer would have been off-line for starters, and it is not like our computer dialing program resembles anything like the DHD.

    Though I do remember him pressing something on his hand like one of the ring transporters, pehaps a remote dialing device could have been used. If a ring transporter can be incorporated into a ribbon devise, why not that.

    I just sort of accept that it's a pilot and they're going to goof. The number of uniform mistakes in it alone is enough to make Baby Jesus cry.

    Yep, I can attest to that. I have both the DVD and VHS formats, and they are different in many ways, with scenes cut out all over the place on the VHS. It also has the scene showing the symbiote entering her neck removed, just a close up shot of Apophis, and the sounds.

    Actually, you can see the nips of the air force chick through the thin dress she's wearing in Apophis' palace and on the very edge of the screen while Amonet is checking her out. Not that I look for that sort of thingÖ

    Frankly, I would have preferred full frontal from BOTH chicks rather than neither.

    At the very end of the Stargate feature, the team manages to dial up the gate without a DHD apparent. Apophis probably managed to do the same thingÖ somehow.

    This episode is interesting to watch as a transition from the movie world of Stargate to the television world. RDA is far more subdued here than in the episode which immediately follows perhaps to lessen the difference between his own and Kurt Russell's portrayals.

    The ship that attacks O'Neill and company is a mystery to me. It looks like a death glider but sports a ring transport thingy and enough cargo room to carry numerous passengers. We never saw that configuration after this episode, either. Despite hewing a little too close to the movie formula for my tastes, by the end of the pilot, and the great moment there between Daniel and Jack, I was hooked.
