Quotes

Emmett Bregman: You know, I, uh... I once did a piece on this war photographer. His name was Martin Kristofski. For about six months, he was with a unit in Vietnam. And the day before he was scheduled to leave - the *day* before, he's out with the unit. And it was just a routine patrol, or so they thought. But suddenly, a Lieutenant pulled him down. And Kristofski - he hadn't intended to take a picture at that moment, but his hands were on the camera and he hit the ground so hard that it just went off. And the...

What's the difference between a 10 and a 4 rating? Manipulating the audience by keeping secrets from them.

While the secret is only for the inattentive, it's still a secret. Anyone paying attention knew O'Neill took a staff shot to the anti-staff armor.

Let the audience know what the characters don't know. Letting the characters know something the audience doesn't know, and concealing it with cleverly directed half conversations, is a formula for blah.

The episode did a nice job of ending on a high note. It showed a respectful documentary describing the heroism of the people at SGC. It was a nice redemption for the documentary director: he turned out to be a sincere guy.

As for the death of Doctor Mary Ann Jr. (she looks like Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island), that's another blah.

The episode also loses points for not advancing the main series story line. It probably deserves points for involving so much Jaffa action without really mattering.
