I thought it was a good episode. It dragged on in some places but RDA acting in this is excellent!
I loved Sam and Daniel in cohoots to get Teal'c to use his staff weapon. Poor Teal'c watching the news.
I liked seeing Jack's back story fleshed out some more.
9:30 for the puzzle-- getting a feel for it.
Hammond and Carter talks about the Iris, that somebody has sent the code and it was disappearing. But the wormhole was only activated after this conversation, so the code could never arrive.
2. The pictures are rotated in 90 angle when "Jack" checks his ring:
My comment : it can happen that he has shaken it with his other hand or something.
"I was hoping for another day. Looks like we just got a whole lot more than that. Let's not waste it."
"Never underestimate your audience. They're generally sensitive, intelligent people who respond positively to quality entertainment."
"Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction, its essence, has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all."
No, that's definitely a continuity error. They are stacked too neatly to have been shaken 90 degrees.
Poor Sarah......poor Sarah.....not only left out on a limb about Jack and seeing a double of Charlie but left standing there with no follow up in the hospital all alone, never to be seen again.
Missed this one. 9.35. Nothing to write home about.
i always wondered if they would come back to her having found some sense of balance in a later episode, perhaps she gets a new purpose in life, or her and jack get back together, and maybe even have a go at mending thier relationship, then again jack could just ask the asgard to clone thier son... but that would be sadly dark... then again he could get the asgard to clone thebody.... get in a time jumper, grab the kid before he shoots himself, leave the fake body that was never alive there instead, bring him forward in time after shooting thegun in a really horrible nightmare inducing scene, and then they both hop in the jumper go forward in time to just after the hospital scene and rebuild their family... and time travel means the sgc doesnt notice he borrrowed the time jumper... but the ancients do... and who knowswhat htey will do, or think etc
Not a proper comment, but I have a computer again (among the living!) and wanted to post something that occurred to me some time ago.
The crystal beings always reminded me of something but I couldn't quite remember what it was, then, I stumbled upon it. The cover from a novel by science fiction writer Ursula K. LeGuin, 'The Left Hand of Darkness,' which I would assumed is from the early 70's.LeGuin.jpg
I would rate 'Cold Lazarus' as a 7/8 out of 10, as I've stated previously, it's difficult for me to really think of any episodes I dislike... OK, 'One False Step' is one I really dislike and probably don't watch.

From the Wiki:
"The Left Hand of Darkness is a science fiction novel by U.S. writer Ursula K. Le Guin, published in 1969. The novel became immensely popular and established Le Guin's status as a major author of science fiction.
The novel follows the story of Genly Ai, a native of Terra, who is sent to the planet of Gethen as an envoy of the Ekumen, a loose confederation of planets. Ai's mission is to persuade the nations of Gethen to join the Ekumen, but he is stymied by his lack of understanding of Gethenian culture. Individuals on Gethen are ambisexual, with no fixed sex. This fact has a strong influence on the culture of the planet, and creates a barrier of understanding for Ai.
The Left Hand of Darkness was among the first books in the genre now known as feminist science fiction and is the most famous examination of androgyny in science fiction. A major theme of the novel is the effect of sex and gender on culture and society, explored in particular through the relationship between Ai and Estraven, a Gethenian politician who trusts and helps him. Within that context, the novel also explores the interaction between the unfolding loyalties of its main characters, the loneliness and rootlessness of Ai, and the contrast between the religions of Gethen's two major nations. The theme of gender also touched off a feminist debate when it was first published, over depictions of the ambisexual Gethenians."
