Maybe they needed a new paperweight.
There was obviously some time after where Jack talked to Sara that we didnt see.Originally Posted by _Anubis
My question is how did the jaffa move the crystals with out getting shocked and stuff. Also why did they leave one crystal unbroken. Its not like it was away from the others.
This ep _can_ be accussed of sappiness but I've always loved the fact that SG has been willing to wear its heart on its sleeve in a way that say...ooh, Voyager or some such could never pull off. We all hurt and we all have baggage -- SG1 is one of the few shows to remember this.
Script a little clunky and finding its feet at times sure, but anyone who has kids and doesn't get choked here has got to be harsh.

Most SF shows need a season or two to get their head on straight and figure out what they're doing. The first season or so, the writing is usually spotty, as is the acting, and sets and costumes tend to be on the cheesy side as everyone settles into their roles and figures out how to work together (TNG, SG-1, and DS9 are prime examples, as is B5 to a lesser extent). So I always give the first season or so of a new show some slack. This is first season, and fairly early first season at that.
If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere.

An optimist may see a light where there is none, but why must the pessimist always run to blow it out?

Now, there's this about cynicism. It's the universe's most supine moral position. Real comfortable. If nothing can be done, then you're not some kind of **** for not doing it, and you can lie there and stink to yourself in perfect peace.
-Lois McMaster Bujold, "The Borders of Infinity"
SG-1 remembering baggage is one of the things that makes it so good--if I couldn't write on or even ponder over various charcter demons, I'd be bored to death with it. The fact that said demons aren't in ever episode keeps it from getting bogged down (I haven't seen much Andromeda, but the eps I have caught seemed to be like that), but mixing a few in every so often keeps we devoted fans onboard.Originally Posted by gone_fishin'
I agree with you on both points, but still a great episode. I'd heard Cold Lazarus was a good episode, but i managed to avoid spoilers and i was pleasantly surprised by what happened. Definately a tear-jerker.Originally Posted by Albion
I loved that when the real O'neill came back throught the stargate, the speakers were saying "unscheduled offworld activation - this is not a drill...unscheduled offworld activation - this is not a drill" Lol, i can't believe they have to say that! What do they say when it is a drill?
I really like this ep!
Very funny in bits (especially Teal'c, and real Jack coming back through!), and its great to see Jack how he used to be, with a family. I think its so cute when he meets Sara in the hospital!!
You said it. I can't watch this one without dissolving into tears the moment 'Charlie' touches Jack.Originally Posted by gone_fishin'
The scen with Jack in the brig was hilarious!
Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini => three of the world's worst dictators.
Also failed artist, failed priest, and failed grade-school teacher.
What we should learn: Don't trust artists, be wary of priests, and fear your teachers!
You know, I was watching this episode yesterday and I couldn't help but wonder, how did Jack open the iris BEFORE the wormhole materialized? I mean, in all the other times before, you had to enter iris codes after the wormhole engaged because radio waves travel through the wormhole? But this time Hammond says, "Why isn't the iris closed?" Walter says "someone has our IDC codes, sir." And the wormhole had not even been engaged yet? Does that work? If it works, then its reasonable to say that you could send a message through the stargate without engaging a wormhole completely just by dialing the address? No no no that's not right. Someone help me figure this out.

Not one of my favourite episodes, but it did have some nice moments in it
This is one of my top favourite episodes. It totally makes me cry, but I love watching it, because it's happy in a way. I mean, Jack has closure. It's just beautiful.
Average Episode Nothing to write home about
meh, glimpse of off-world activity brought back alien to planet, nice little character building at the end so it is good for being the 6th ever episode
Saw this for the first time Monday night and I loved it! One of my favorite episodes of the series and one of the best of season 1 as far as I am aware, this is probably one of the most underrated episodes of thes series. RDA really outdid himself in this episode with his wonderful performance as the alternate O'Neill and the scenes with Sarah were...touching to say the least. The music was great with the sad piano music playing troughout the episode. The efects were pretty good and I thought the end of the episiode was especially good when the "unity" became Charlie O'Neill and him and O'Neill went trough the Stargate.
I just found out that Harley Jane Kozak (Sara) has been writing detective novels for the last few years. I'd seen the name but didn't put the 2 together.
I trhink its a lovely episode made to bring a tear to the eye of even the strongest of hearts.
Oh Yes the Sam is Back and hes more Sci-fied up than ever !!!!!!!!!
Coming Soon a new Banner from Me
good back story on jack but thats about it not a fan of this one
it is good that there had jack get over charlie death early so the chararcter could move on but i think that there could had done it differently
