    Yeah, nicely put.

    Sort of gives a sad new meaning to "you can't go home again".

    Ouch.

    A wonderful episode from back when Stargate didn't mind being emotionally affecting and somewhat disturbing (particularly in the Terminatoresque infirmary scene). What was particularly fascinating (and devastating) was the application to the ethics of cloning without actually trying to make that point in a heavy-handed manner (like Star Trek would try to do). Probably the best use of the abandoned power plant set in the series. An episode where there are no easy answers and SG-1 can do nothing but proceed with their lives.

    I loved this episode, it's one of my favorites. When they realized they were robots and then that they were actually copies...
    I cried for the synthetics, I mean, they are in practically every way SG-1 and they were stuck in that crumbling down factory with Harlan... Great episode and I also love what they did in the follow up too. I wonder if Robot!Sam and Robot!Jack became closer since they weren't really USAF anymore...

    Oh, and it's Komtraya

    I love also how they keep saying "Bet-ter" with the hand gesture and all. It was silly.

    I liked this ep a lot! It was really different, and I was sure that we weren't going to see the robots again. I was so happy when "Double Jeopardy" aired (or I read the transcript; I don't remember which) and then I was REALLY ticked when all the robots DIED. I mean, what's with that? Although I suppose that the robots needed to be reintroduced to sate people like myself, and did any of us really think that the synthetics would be able to keep away from the 'gate? Would you be able to? And once we found that they gallivanting around the galaxy, what would we do? Pat them on the backs and tell them to keep up the good work? I just don't see that working.

    So basically, it was a no-win situation no matter how you look like it.

    This is one of my favorite episodes, as you can see by my choice of avatars, but my reasoning is simple: Harlans race wasn't originally from Earth.

    Harlan said that "Hubbult" was the leader and creator of the complex he maintained, but he died 11,000 years ago. That seems to indicate that Harlan is older than that.
    Since we know Ra discovered Earth about 10,000 years ago, Harlans race couldn't have been transplanted there by the Goa'uld. That makes his race an enigma, unless you've seen the future episodes.
    Jarnin's Law of StarGate:

    1. As a StarGate discussion grows longer, the probability of someone mentioning the Furlings approaches one.

    That's if Harlan was human--he looked human, but that doesn't mean he was. Maybe he was some sort of twistedly freakish Ancient.

    Look, it's possible!

    Got to go with Uncle Dick's post on this one. First thought was - OMG, they’re actually showing Jack doing that to his ‘arm.’ (Second thought was - cool SFX….)

    But I agree with Dani & FHB, that there was sadness, because they robot/clone team would deeply miss everything they had experienced up to that point (family/friends/lifestyle). It was interesting because it was almost like an AU kind of thing with the robot/clone team having shared memories up to that point with the ‘real’ team, but then their memories/consciousness would branch into a different directions as a result of their own new and separate experiences.....

    Overall a pretty good ep.

    At first i thought it would be real cool to be synthensized. All the extra strength and brain power. Only bad about it i that you cant leave the complex, i would do like the others and kill myself.

    Komtraya!!!
    I LOVE this episode! I guess I like heart-rending things, but seriously I thought it was funny! I love Harlan, hes hilarious, I love the way Robot SG-1 reacts to real SG-1 (Carters babbling science, 2 Jacks what more could I say?!) too.
    I think that also, like Window of Oppurtunity, it's great that they can balance humour with sadness hand in hand in the same episode.

    I love it!!
