  • A great episode with an exiting cliffhanger, and seeing Michael Shanks naked is always worth it.

  • Fallen was a truly great Season opener and a great way to bring a loved character back into the mix. It was just meant to be along with Homecoming to finish it off!

  • I loved it. Micheal shanks is such a talented actor and I believed that he did not know who he was and who they were. And I loved the enteraction between Jim (Jack) and Daniel was oh so funny.

    • Old Man: No one can be a friend if you know not whether to trust them. Jack: Don't judge a book by it's cover. Old Man: Enemies' promises were made to be broken. Jack: And yet, honesty is the best policy. Old Man: He who has too many friends has none. Jack: Ahh but, Birds of a feather. Old Man: I'm unfamiliar with that story, what lesson does it teach? Jack: It has to do with flocking, and togetherness, and to be honest I'm not so familiar with the particulars myself.

    • Jack: (to Daniel) Did I mention you owe me fifty bucks?

    • Jonas: I got it! Sam: Hopefully it's not contagious.

    • (logged into Anubis's ship computer) Jonas: Okay, can't you do some kind of keyword search. Daniel: For what - 'Achilles'?

    • (sending the F-302 on an attack run) Jack: I want to see what this baby's made of. Sam: I could tell you, sir...exactly. Jack: Another time...maybe...please?

    Trivia (4)

    • When Jonas and Daniel ring up to Anubis' mother ship from the planet, the rings deploy from empty space above them. Given that they are traveling to a ship in orbit, they cannot be using the rings from that ship; the rings must be mounted on the planet's surface. Therefore, the rings should deploy from below them.

    • Trivia: The X-302 has been renamed F-302. F stands for Fighter.

    • Jonas talks about hearing the battle. However, no fighting was occurring on the ground. Anubis was fighting the other Gou'auld ships in orbit.

    • When SG-1 is walking down the steps of "The City of the Lost" for the first time, you can clearly see a camera shadow across one of the locals' backs.

    Allusions (4)

    • Daniel's Name When SG-1 finds the amnesiac Daniel, the villagers tell them that Daniel's name is Arom, meaning "naked one." Arom is the Hebrew word for "naked."

    • Daniel: Has your hair always been that way? Possibly a reference to the blindingly obvious differences between Kurt Russell, who played O'Neill in the movie, and his blond military cut and Richard Dean Anderson's salt and pepper hair. (editor's note: might also be a joke on RDA's current military-cut vs. his flowing MacGyver locks)

    • John Doe:
      The opening with Daniel laying naked in a fetal position in a overhead shot lying on sand, and the subsequent revelation he is amnesiac, is very, very similar to the opening scene of the series John Doe, which premiered Fall '02 and lasted (barely) one season. One of the guest-stars in the second part of this episode, Adrian Hough, was a semi-regular on that show.

    • Col. O'Neill: I thought we were going with Red Leader on this one. Red Leader was the callsign for the leader of Luke Skywalker's squadron in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Their mission was to destroy the Death Star exaust shaft, much like O'Neill and Carter tried and succeeded in destroying Anubis' weapon's ventilation shaft. It's probably a good thing they didn't do that, because Red Leader was one of the many casualties of the Trench Run.
