    I really enjoyed this episide also, it let us know a lot about what make Teal'c tick. One of my fav's from S1.

    Persumably, the Stargate and buildings surrounding it have a religious and cultural significance to the native humans. Not to get too political here, but I'd imagine tensions in Israel would be greatly reduced if the Palestinians would just give up any pretension of ruling Jerusalem. Unfortunately, it's a holy city and neither side is going to want to abandon it. I imagine there's a similar principle at work in this episode.

    This was a great ep, as far as storylines go. It introduced a little more about Teal'c's character, which is always nice, and it showed just how much he'd changed, not to mention how long he'd been resenting Apophis. (This is just a random thought, but do you reckon that Jaffa are allowed to form unions? Don't ask where that came from, I don't know myself). My Mom cried at the end of this one. I just laughed about Teal'c's face paint. Seriously, though, it was a great ep.

    I do wonder what we're going to do to help the natives out defenses-wise. I mean, it's not like they have a lot of technology as it is, probably because they keep getting killed off before they can perfect it. I doubt that they've gotten the silk-and-amber thing figured out, let alone the kite and they key. Anyway, the point of this rather meandering bit of verbage is that I was wondering, exactly what would we do to help them out? Station troops on the planet as a precaution? Give them a few peices of heavy artillery? Any thoughts, anyone?

    Didnt like this episode much but it was good how they showed that Teal'c was never really a bad person even before he joined SG-1. However, I wonder why Teal'c never turned his back on Apophis before unless it was because with SG-1 coming through the Stargate he found somewhere to go after he rebelled against the Gou'ald

    This episode scored average to me. Some really good bits in it, but not enough to be one of my favourite eps. Although, I do love it when Jack says: 'Why has it always got to be something religious with you. Maybe they're coming from a swap meet!' One of my all time fave Jack lines

    A so-so ep. I could identify with Jack; you wanted to reach out and smack Tealíc for giving in so readily. T's need to want to cleanse himself of the deeds heíd done by allowing himself to be brought to justice was understandable, but as Jackís argument (about being in a chain of command that didnít give T freewill to choose) pointed out Tealíc had less choice back then than he did now. (But then Jack (& us viewers) didnít know Tealíc had been taught by Bratac, who was himself acting subversively by training certain Jaffa like Tealíc to think independently and do what they could for the Jaffa cause in whatever way they couldÖ. )

    Teal'c is awfully pigheaded at times, but he's getting better. I'm starting to like Teal'c episodes more now (S8) than I did when I first saw this one.

    Why would they have religous significance. The stargate is where the "gods" come from and kill them. Every intelligent live form is afraid or doesnt want to die. (few exceptions for every race)

    This episode really showed Teal's charchter and im really started to like Teal'c after seeing this ep.

    I thought this was a pretty good episode. It was nice to learn more about Teal'c's past.

    For me though, the scene with Jack and Hammond was the most interesting because it raised a lot of moral questions. Would it have been right to send in troops, or should they let these people do 'justice'. Is Teal'c a war criminal? And we hear that Jack has also done some terrible things under orders. I know some people will have very strong views on this issue, but i really couldn't decide - both sides of the argument seem to have valid points. Those people have a right to their own justice system- even if we disagree with the outcome, does it mean we should interfere? At first i was completely against sending in troops to an essentially peaceful planet, but then when Hammond agreed with me and i thought Teal'c was going to be executed, i swung round completely to Jack's side of the argument.

    What do you think?

    This wasn't my favorite episode, but I agree that it made you think. It's easy to take the moral high ground when a friend isn't at risk. Luckily Teal'c was able to redeem himself in the victim's eyes.

    It was nice to learn tha Teal'c has been defying his "God" for awhile now
    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!

    Ah the Byrsa. It seems to me that if I was them, I'd've moved the village a little farther away from the stargate, but that's just me.
    LOL. Yes, this occurs to me every time I watch this episode. They have this whole society which seems to spend most of its energies thinking up ways to avoid being taken by the Jaffa and living in permanent fear of the Stargate opening. You'd think they'd figure putting a few thousand miles, some mountains, a few rivers, <g> between them and the Stargate might make it slightly more difficult for the Goa'uld. I mean, could they get any closer to that gate? It's odd when they don't seem to use the gate for travel at all.

    Despite this illogic, I like this episode. It's not an A-list favourite, but it has some good moments and it's an interesting and poignant character study for Teal'c. Jack's frustration with the system and with Teal'c is well played and it's an interesting 'moral dilemma' show.

    But then, I like Demons too.

    Listen, we had General Ryan come on and do a little cameo for us, and he's a real live four star, one of the big guys. And I had to ask him point blank, because there's a certain irreverence that I bring to the character, and denseness, but while we were doing this scene, I just looked at him and said, "Do you have guys like me in...?" and he stopped me and said, "Yes, and worse, and you're doing a fine job, son."

    This episode was the one that got me to realize that teal'c WAS first prime to apophis (i never understood that). It was also interesting to see how SG-1 kept on making points and examples (that were legitimite). Daniel had a good speech but was quickly shot down with "Can he bring my father back".

    Good episode.

    it was good imo. i personally liked the slower moving eps of the first few seasons . but i also liked that after WW2, there were lots of questions about should the commanders be punished for killing people coz they were "following orders".

    It's probably sensible of them to be close to the gate because at least they know when the the enemy is coming. The distance is not a very big deal for Apophis because he has all kinds of ships anyway, but if they had moved further away, they would never know when to hide.

    they could post sentries by the gate if it was farther away and have thos sentries find a place to hide after they sound the alarm...
