    SG-1 getting transformed into those "synthetics"... Nice plot device. However the truth of the sitution makes the episode much better.

    And the follow-up to it was good idea as well, I thought. It's always nice to see something revisited, even if the ending was perhaps not quite as good as it could have been.

    I am therefore I think.

    Question Re: Tin Man (118)

    Did anyone else catch the little "possible" flaw in the "Tin Man" episode? It was something the "real" Jack said towards the end.

    I found this episode very disturbing and sad. I can barely watch it. First, to hear Robot!Jack realise that they could never go back. To know that no matter what might have happened to his counterpart, Robot!Daniel had no hope of ever reuniting with Sha're. Robot!Teal'c would never see his family. Robot!Sam would never see Jacob. And, the worst thing was, they knew what they were missing. It was just too painful to watch.

    I did enjoy the place where the first synthetic Teal'c broke down. Two minds in one body..

    You know, I loved the advantages they had. Increased strength, stamina, and the like. Loved when Jake jumped down several floors taking a shortcut.

    I feel very much the same way, about this episode,Dani !
    I have to admit,I found Harlan annoying at first,til I realised how lonely his life alone must have been. As for the Robot SG-1,I felt real sympathy for their plight.

    I treasure the funnier bits,otherwise I'd never watch this episode again !

    I like how this story arc continues... and the robots try to fight the Goa'uld.

    Harlan reminds me of Urgo... meaning they both annoy me.

    Hah, I enjoyed both of them.

    Imagine what a 1000 SG1's could do.

    The System Lords would probably scratch their heads too, seeing that many planets are attacked by SG1 at the same time.

    It was sort of sad... but I'm not so attached to the characters to the point that it would be painful to watch.

    Now while I can see that this might be sad (I didnīt feel enough connection to them at this point to really care) it still beats them using the reset button and having all the robots destroyed.

    It just seemed to me that at this point in the series they weren't thinking very well about how the series of stand alone episodes that appeared in season 1 should be effecting the characters.

    Still a bit flat at this point, and handled much better later when
    Spoiler:
    the robot doubles appeared again at the end of season four. The emotions of it, and the fact that they couldn't stop being themselves, was really nicely done.
