Colonel Jack O'Neill and Teal'c have a recurring case of déja-vu, but it's much worse, they really recall what happened ten hours ago on SG-1's mission to a planet where a device at an altar near its Stargate throws them back in time, yet neither Daniel nor Sam recollect anything so the SGC refuses to believe them, they're tested, found medically okay, the general calls the mission off when Sam feels it might actually be some time-distortion, but that doesn't work. They learn to be more convincing, so they can go to the planet, but there a certain that Malakai proves a problem. Their only hope is to help Daniel decipher the inscriptions on pictures of the altar over many, many time-loops, after Sam helps them make sense of what must be happening; meanwhile Daniel gives them the naughty idea they can get away with pretty much any pranking, as everything reverts to normal unharmed anyhow...

During the briefing about setting up the remote observatory, Jack displays ignorance of Carter's plans to observe the coronal mass ejection. It was established from the first episode of Stargate SG1 that Jack is a keen amateur astronomer - the airmen who come to collect him to take him to the Stargate HQ find him on his roof using a telescope. It is therefore unlikely that Jack would not have knowledge of or display indifference towards an astronomical event such as a coronal mass ejection. See more »


Jack O'Neill: You know the worst part about this? Every time we loop Daniel asks me a question, and I wasn't listening the first time.
Teal'c: You're not the only one to suffer some discomfort, O'Neill.

The funniest episode in this series until now!
25 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

Well, i must say i enjoy more and more how this TV-show goes on. This is the first review I ever made and is all because of this cool episode. This episode is the funniest episode i've ever seen in this series until now, I laugh my ass off while seeing O'Neil and Teal'c getting annoyed and bored and starting to do all kind of crazy and very funny things along this episode. If you like the comedy of O'Neal and Teal'c i recommend this awesome episode for you. I rated this episode 10 out of 10 and is all because all those funny moments. :) I have to apologize for my bad English... but "For crying out loud" there is not much of a problem, i done my best. :)
