    I've realised SGO does actually fill a hole in the continuity, we never saw in the series how the Goa'uld brainwash people - maybe they are using the same kind of Kara'kesh Aset had.
    He can only sense those Goauld who have Naquadah in their blood (not all of them do)

    years are different on different planet, so maybe that's what caused the confusion with the number of years.

    the Asgard may have colonies in more than one galaxy (some of them were even in the Pegasus galaxy)

    I think it was inferred to be mostly chemical, sometimes combined with torture.

    In any case, we can always assume there are many ways to brainwash someone

    Are you referring to how "pathetic" he looked? Remember he was trying to keep a low profile. Since other Goa'uld visited Earth from time to time he could have been found out if he was supreme ruler of the entire planet.

    I agree with all of this. SG-1 did create inconsistencies over the years, but most of them also got explained somehow later on.

    To create a Harsisis the Symbiote has to let the Host take control for nine months. That means observing only, no controlling anything. I think the experience leaves a mark, making the Symbiote more "compassionate", and the host now has more control/influence than other hosts as well (Same happened with Ammunet and Shauri)

    I think he didn't want to be subjected to the hate that Ra ended up with. He lived down low with a few followers and didn't try to amass an army because he feared being over thrown. Given his fear I don't think he PUT a big effort into it. I mean the first few generations would have stories passed down on how evil Ra was and to fight back was now in their blood. Then the Israelite's were hunting down those who claimed to be gods, Dark Ages had a huge fear of witchcraft and ungodly powers.
    Plus he never knew when Ra would come back and I'm sure Seth feared his wrath if he was visible and easy to find.

    Yea i got the impression he was just happy to have a few followers and not bother with ruling an empire. Especially since it could indeed attract either uprisings or Ra's wrath.

    The goa'uld can rule the galaxy because of enslaved jaffa, so if Seth lacked those (and he did), he also may have realized that it would be hard to subjugate a world like that. Considering Earth has no naquahdah and the gate was buried, it would also be hard for him to rule with superior technology.

    All in all, i think Seth just didn't think it was worth the trouble and was perfectly happy with his personal cult and easy lifestyle.

    Jacob was host to Selmak from Season 2 to Season 8 - 6 years. I'm thinking he made a reference to "4 years ago" when he and the team were all prisoners in Jolinar's Memories and The Devil You Know (seasons 3 and 4), and he didn't think he was going to make it out alive.

    I was referring to Threads where Carter says he was only host for 4 years

    The yellow eyes could have explained if the hosts were "Enkarans" (SG-1 season 4 Scorched Earth)...
