It seems to me like they're always revisiting the Charlie storyline. Jack has a tendancy to project his desire to see his son again on every young moppet that passes through the stargate (see Show and Tell, Learning Curve, any Skaara episode). He's had a whole movie to get over his suicidal tendancies and another full episode to work things out with his ex-wife. I'd like to think that this is one personal demon Jack has left behind.Originally Posted by sueKay
Totally agree with you about Dumb Jack, though. He doesn't have to understand everything Carter talks about, but the least he could do is act *normal* as he does for the length of this episode.
Other great things about this episode:
- Yellow sand planet! The blue on yellow contrast gave the offworld scenes a truly otherworldly feel.
- Teal'c ventures off base (without wearing a novelty hat).
- Movie references galore.
- A cool and unusual alien.
- Great acting by RDA.
- Supurb SFX work (Jack/Charlie morph, energy bolts, etc.)
