    Lots of action. Shows us that Teal'c is human despite the fact of carrying a worm in his belly. Let's us see more into the friendship of O'Neill and Teal'c and more into the knowledge of Daniel and Sam. I give it a 9 out of 10.

    Another episode with great acting by RDA and since it was written by Michael Greenburg I can just see him sitting there over his keyboard giggling at all the 'hurt' he's going to do to his friend and partner. <G>
    It also had one of my favorite people in it. Lt. Graham Simmons. There are some who believe he succumbed, and that's whey we haven't seen him since then. I don't think he did though. I'm hoping he didn't.

    Another episode that shows that no matter how important each character is to the SGC, what matters in the long run is the the safety and well being of the whole and where some priorities should lay. Loud round of applause to Carter and Hammond for realizing this.

    Cheers,

    The world that SG-1 was going to go visit after bringing this 'bottle' home was primordial, just what these characters needed. They sent it through the Stargate to there as soon as they hauled all their little luminous selves back into the container and let Jack go from the wall.
    Cheers,

    If I recall this was the first ep I got to see of the series. I thought I was neat that they didnt always go to world with atmospheres and it in a way really for me gave strength to the impression of the Stargates as an VERY ancient technology. I mean that when the gate was placed there the world was alive but by the time the SG team arrived the world had been dead for along time.

    Good point. What did they say when they carbon dated the Stargate - 10,000 years, but the coverstone was 5,000? Wasn't 10,000 years ago the dawning of the age of man? Or have I remembered wrong?
    Cheers,

    10,000 years.. depends what you call dawning age really. I think that is probably the start of the stone age and the use of fire if i remember correctly.

    Neanderthals used fire over 200,000 B.P. Ten thousand is about the time farming got its start as well as city building in the Middle East began (Catal Huyuk, Jericho, Mesopotamia etc.) and was well under way in India and the Orient.
    I liked this episode as most of the SGC people were in it. Graham Simmons survived. But he has not made an appearance in season 3 or 4.

    Graham actually IS there in 'The Fifth Race', but that's the last time I remember him. :(

    I had a difficult time convincing people that Simmons survived. Most believed he had died because he doesn't show up after. I keep hoping he'll make another appearance someday. <G>

    I loved this episode. I especially enjoyed the emotinal scenes between Jack and Teal'c. I thought Richard Dean Anderson was exceptional in portraying his physical and emotional agony.

    Winding up MythingLink, that is like Teal'c and his and his "Things will calm up.", is it not?

    I guess my humor is obscure as well as odd. winding UP and calm UP, I have heard of winding down and calm down... but rarely associalted those two words with UP.

    Guess I am literarially challenged as well. Sigh!

    (This, again, is a poor atttempt at humor) Notice wink Icon!

    Nope, I get it.

    Remember those little toys that has a key on the back, like the monkey with the symbols? You wind it up to get it to work. Some folks use the phrase 'winding up' to get people to work. ;)

    Thank you MythingLink,

    I had totally forgotten about that usage! If my son reads this thread, he will say I have "Old Timers" (a pun on Alzeheimer's Disease). Poor padders, no wonder he was confused!

    But with my 13 year old, I only want him to wind DOWN!
    Oh, dear, I have managed to mangle the "Message" thread.

    This is an episode I really enjoyed. The whole team was busy as was most of our favorite base personnel. Do you think that they will bring back Graham Simmons? or was the crush thing just for that episodes angst?
