  • The president invited a film crew to go to the sgc to document the program. Nobody at the sgc was really thrilled to have them there, since they had already tried such a thing and it backfired terriblely. Jack just refuses to say anything, he not happy.moreless

    Even tho' this was a really good episode, and I have never seen an episode that I dont like at all, it was alot slower than normal, it showed them enterviewing the members and the way the side tracked their questions as much as possible. Of course ask Sam a question and she gets very technecal. She was more cooperative than anyone.

    There was ot much action in this one it all focused on the sgc and what it was all about, I guess you could say.

    The real story behind it didn't really start until the end but we knew that the best was yet to come. So I guess that it was a great build up to the hour long climax of the show.

    It was entertaining and there was lots of humor in this one.moreless
  • awesome episode...

    I love this episode. The more I watch it the more I love it. I actually like it better than the part two of this episode. Anyways, a film team comes to the SGC to film a documentary. No one wants them there and it's halarious to see awkward air force personell in interviews. It's halarious. Also, Jack avoids them, which is funny in itself. An SG team goes off world and encounter an ancient city of ruins but are soon attacked by jaffa. Jack jumps on the chance to go off world and the team is called to rescue. Overall, great episode. It had funny, something new, good action. I also loved seeing a close up of a different SG team and it was cool to see them talking about kids and stuff. Overall, again, a great episode and one of my favorites.moreless
  • Great story creating...

    I really see the beauty of this two part episode now. When I was watching the first episode, after it, I was really thinking - what. Does every show always have to make that kind of episode what looks like "live" or filming what is going on. It was original one time but not when almost every serie does it. So, most of the episode is filled with those weird interviews. Specially loved the Teal'c's one - he came because Hammond said that but noone said he should talk too. To conclude, it looked alone very pointless episode with nothing to offer, but after looking the second part, the whole beauty and the purpose of the episode emerges.moreless
  • I don’t think I’ve seen many people on TV and in the real world that are quite as annoying and persistent as Emmett Bregman. And no one as ridiculed as he is.moreless

    For a first part of a two-parter this one is very light hearted. Most two-parters are much more actions. But I think this one is great, I absolutely loved it. The interviews, the quips between the Sg-1 team members, with Kinsey and the Sg-13 on the planet.



    The performance of Carter in front of the camera I thought was quite unrealistic. For a character that talks in front hundreds of people about physics she was way too nervous. I thought Jack and Daniel were very funny in front of the camera and acting with the camera crew. Teal’c was very funny too, but by saying nothing.



    The story of Sg-13 was cool; we learn 3 new characters in a fun way and learn to really sympathize with them. The conversations about kids were fun, until everything hit the fan of course. A fantastic episode with an amazingly good cliff-hanger.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • When the off-world team encounters the ruins, Balinksy raises his fists in the wide shot, then again on the close-up.

    • When Dr. Fraiser is talking to Bregman about Col. O'Neill, Sgt. Siler can be seen in the background. This continues the running gag of Siler constantly getting injured, although this is the first time we actually see him in the infirmary.

    • General Hammond is never interviewed. In fact he's never even asked to do an interview. How can Bregman possibly do a documentary on the SGC without input from the person in charge? It would be like doing a piece on the White House without mentioning the President.

    • At the end, when they are being attacked, Colonel Dixon uses his radio to ask for assistance from SG-9. But earlier when talking to Hammond, the General said he was sending SG-3 as backup.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Hammond: I knew Kinsey and Bregman were headed your way and I thought you might be looking for an excuse to get away, Colonel.
      Jack: I thought as much, Sir, and I just wanted to express my deep and unyielding... love for you, sir.

    • Bregman: Col. O'Neill! Hi, I'm...
      Jack: I like vanilla over chocolate, my favorite color is peridot, I think Tibet should be free, and if I could have dinner with anyone in the world, it would be Mary Steenburgen.
      Bregman: No, no. I'm just trying... Mary Steenburgen?
      Jack: I think she's nice.

    • (Colonel Dixon talking about his children)
      Colonel Dixon: All night screaming, projectile vomiting, nuclear diapers, you've no idea. The reason why they make them so damn cute is so you don't suffocate them in their sleep.
      SG-13 Soldier: But Sir, you have four kids.
      Colonel Dixon: Why do you think I enjoy my job so much?

    • Balinsky: Dr. Jackson's going to die when he sees this.
      Dixon: What, again?

    • Teal'c: I did not say much.
      Sam: Really? It's usually so hard to shut you up.

    • Kinsey: How did your interview go?
      Jack: It was short, but oh so sweet.

    • Sam: Did you do your interview yet?
      Jack: Yep.
      Sam: Mary Steenbergen?
      Jack: She's so hot!

    • Colonel Dixon: "Miracle of birth" my ass. You know what's a miracle? Birth control that works.

    • Bregman: Could we get a shot of the gate spinning?
      Sam: Yeah. It's really cool – steam shoots out of it and everything.

    • Bregman: That's it? Why were we running?
      Daniel: I just wanted to see if you'd chase me.

    • Jack: I hope shots of my ass serve you well.

  • NOTES (5)

    • Mary Steenburgen, mentioned in this and earlier episodes as an actress Jack admires, stars on Joan of Arcadia with Michael Welch, who was on SG-1 earlier that season as Jack's younger clone in "Fragile Balance." "Joan" also airs on Friday nights, although an hour earlier than Stargate's timeslot.

    • We finally find out the scope of Davis' job. It's not much...

    • Mitchell Kosterman previously played a different character, Special Agent James Hamner, in "Seth."

    • The SGC has now conducted 1,000 embarkations through the stargate.

    • Dr. Fraiser mentions that Jack has had three knee surgeries. Anderson has in fact had three knee surgeries, the last one after tearing his knee when he tripped while carrying his daughter.
