  • Goodness, what an episode! Never have I been so excited in my life turning on the television to watch the show - I sure wasn't dissapointed.

  • I can't help but wonder if Stargate has jumped the shark with the introduction of the King Arthur mythology.

  • Quotes (14)

    • Daniel: Well, all indications are that the black knight was activated the second I stepped onto that platform. So my guess is we can shut him down by imputing the right code sequence on the control panel. Mitchell: Merlin's pin number?

    • Marks: And those who are prideful, and refuse to bow down, shall be laid low and made unto dust.

    • Mitchell: So all you had to do was shoot the control crystals? Daniel: Pretty much. Mitchell: Sounds like one of my plans.

    • Daniel: Clearly it can’t be a weapon in the conventional sense. See, the Ascended beings transcend space/time as we know it. This device would have to do the same thing. Mitchell: In other words, you have no idea what it might be. Daniel: Yeah, pretty much, that’s it.

    • Mitchell: So, best-case scenario this curse of the black knight is a story Merlin made up to scare off the locals. Worse-case scenario, he has another holographic knight protecting his goods like he did back in England. Either way, I don’t see a big problem. (Teal’c looks skeptical) Mitchell: What? Teal’c: Given your narrow victory over the Knight in the Avalon cave, it would seem that your over-confidence is ill-advised. Mitchell: Did I say anything about me doing the fighting?

    Allusions (3)

    • Mitchell: I don’t know that’s going to help, you keep moving around like Ed Grimley. Referencing Martin Short, who created the spastic character of Ed Grimley for SCTV Network 90 and its spinoffs.

    • The Korolev The name of the Russian ship alludes to Sergey Pavlovich Korolev, the head Soviet rocket engineer and designer during the space race. There is also a lunar crater and a Russian town named after him.

    • Title The Arthurian Legend speaks of an English town called Camelot, where King Arthur was said to have lived and was raised by Merlin the Magician. He was raised to reign, to be King, in this land called Camelot.
