Did You Know?


Col. O'Neill tells a reporter "That's O'Neill, with two L's. There's another Colonel O'Neil with one L. He has no sense of humor." In the feature film Stargate (1994), the lead character, whose name was spelled with one L, was played by Kurt Russell and was a much more humorless character. See more »


When Carter tells O'Neill that Washington D.C. is her "old stomping grounds", Jack replies, "Sorry to hear that." When Selig is playing back the recording of the conversation for Jack in the bar, his reply became "My condolences." See more »


Jack O'Neill: You know, I can navigate my way across a galaxy, but I get lost every time I come to Washington.
Samantha Carter: Don't worry, sir. These are my old stompin' grounds.
Jack O'Neill: Sorry to hear that.

two episodes made into one makes it very weak
30 May 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Strange episode because it's divided in two stories. One concerning Teal'c and Jackson returning to Abydos to tell Sha're her father that they can't find her. Remember, Jackson was once in love with her. But when they arrive they soon discover that she's still alive and living together with her father.

Further we have O'Neill and Carter going to Washington to be decorated by the president. But things go wrong because O'Neill is stopped by a journalist who tells him that he know everything about Cheyenne Mountain base and the SG-1 project. Not only that, Jackosn soon discovers that Sha're is pregnant by Apophis. But Heru'ur, the enemy of Apophis wants to get the baby when it is born.

Two stories that are here to catch sadly they jump from one story to another. They should better have divided it in two separate episodes but we are stuck with it as it is. It's funny to see O'Neill and Carter walking in Washington. We can only hope that in further episodes the story about the journalist returns but this episode containing two stories that has nothing to do with each other is misplaced.

Almost no effects to catch only at the planet Abydos we do have a fight going on.
