Wizard of Oz References
17 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The executive producer, Johathan Glassner, started using 'The Wizard of Oz (1939)' references in a couple of his scripts. Richard Dean Anderson caught onto that and loved it. It became kind of a game for them to see how many Wizard of Oz references they could stick into the scripts.

They used a Wizard of Oz reference in Season 2, Episode 11: 'The Tok'ra

  • Part 1' when Jack O'Neil comes out of the Stargate and says 'Ah,

where's that yellow brick road when you need it eh Dorothy?' Then another one shows up in Season 2, Episode 21 '1969' with Jack saying "Auntie Em, Auntie Em".

As you watch (or re-watch) the series, try to see how many Wizard of Oz reference you can find.
