Considered a fan-favorite episode, and a somewhat light-hearted departure from the Gou'auld arc. See more »


Daniel is supposed to be a language expert. However, when he is speaking in German to Catherine, he repeatedly says "dein Father". He should be saying "Vater" instead of "Father". He is also using the informal "dein", which is only used between friends and relatives when he should have been using "ihr", which is used in formal situations. See more »

Before traveling to another planet, Sam receives a note from Hammond. However, the SG-1 travels back in time to 1960 due to a solar phenomenon. They are captured by the military personal but they decide to keep secret about them to avoid interfering with the future. The military believe they are Russians and they are transported to another base. Meanwhile Sam meets Lieutenant George S. Hammondand and shows his note from the future. Hammond helps them to escape and Sam deciphers the note and concludes that they must go to New York to meet Catherine Langford. They get a ride from a hippie couple and then they need to find the Stargate to return to 1999.

"1969" is probably the funniest episode so far. This is one of the most entertaining episodes of Stargate SG-1 despite the usual inconsistencies in stories with time travel. My vote is seven.
