  • A world with a perfected "memory hole"

    A world reminiscent of "The Matrix" features a networked "memory hole" that facilitates Orwellian historical revisionism, a la "1984."

    This episode, "Revisions," is a devastating political allegory about modern political systems, in which We the Sheeple are made to believe without question the constantly revised consensus reality.

    Apparently it went over the heads of some fans, who dismissed it as "boreing" [sic].

    Other fans, to their credit, "got it."moreless
  • This was an exceptional episode to me, it was not like most Stargate shows not a whole lot of blowing things up and shooting of the jaffa. They find a planet that appears to covered with some kind of toxic gas.moreless

    They send the MALP through the gate and while they are looking at the damage of the planet they suddenly come to a point where everything is nice and green and nontoxic.

    When they go to the planet they discover that it is a dome of some kind that keeps the toxic gases away from the residences so they will be safe.

    Sam thinks this technology would be great especially the ability to maintain such power to keep this dome up and running.

    They meet the town counsel and they decide that it would be fine if sg1 stays for a couple of days to study thier world and how this place came to be. There were 3 men and 1 woman.

    After sg1 had been there for a full day that night the woman of the counsel disapears and her memory has been wiped away from everybodys mind. Not even her husband even realizes that she even existsed.

    This bothers sg1. They go back to report back to the sgc but the MALP is missing. Not actually missing, the dome is shrinking to mantain the ablitiy to keep up sife supports. In other words the dome is failing and failing pretty fast.

    Sg1 trys to convince the residences to leave with them and they will take to another planet where they can have real fresh air and room to grow. They see no need in this they do not want to believe them.

    So Sam convinces Pallan the guy who maintains the computer, who also was married to the woman who disapeared in the begining. So Sam has to make him understand that it was his wife that they noticed who went missing.

    reluctantly he begins to see the things that Sam has been telling was true and now the other towns people have been ordered by the computer to attack sg1.

    Pallan and Sam change the computer programming to erase any memory of what has been going on. It was to the last minute but they are able to save the people from distinction. Very good show. Good charaters.moreless
  • ok episode

    SG-1 goes off world into a dome that has a mind of its own. The dome is shrinking and does population control and erases the inhabitants memory through "the link." I really didn't like this episode that much. It was an ok story line, but it really wasn't that interesting. This episode seemed to be more like the early seasons that were just exploring and finding new planets. It was nice to see that again, but I still didn't really like it. It had some good moments, but it had more boreing ones. Overall, ok episode, nothing special, nothing too bad.moreless
  • the internet goes mental

    This was the best mallozi zcript yet. He and his partner love sendin sg1 to old englishfied country towns and have some strange goings on. At first i did not think this was a very creative episode as it ws like the townspeople just had the internet in their minds, however it had a really good twist when daniel found out there were once 1000000 people living under the dome. it was quite gruesome when tealc found the burnt bodies and there was also a message to the viewer to beware and be eco friendly. i thought this was so like series 1 and 2, i loved it. rda looked and sounded sexy when he spoke into the MALP so I gave it an extra point!moreless
  • Great plot...

    I loved the story - the toxic world and inside it there is that little paradise. The only thing with that storyline was - it was so seen trough. After the first disappearance of the council members and the first hints there is a power problem, I got it and somehow the whole magic of this episode seemed to be to understand what is going wrong and when you get it on the first minute you have all the hints, there is half episode just nothing. But I did liked it and the ending that man asking Sam to tell him about his wife as he cannot remember it. It was brilliant. Love the concept of this episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

  • NOTES (7)

    • The town scenes were filmed in the VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver. This is the same place that the Stargate Atlantis episode "Irresponsible" was filmed.

    • Tiffany Knight previously played Princess LaMoor in "Touchstone."

    • Originally, the character of Nevin was called Aidan. This was changed because they had already a character called Aidan in season six's "Forsaken". The character of Evalla was originally called Evanna but it reminded writer Paul Mullie too much of Ivana Trump. Finally, the character of Pallan was originally called Parlan. The writers chose to change this because they didn't like the way it sounded.

    • Peter DeLuise cameo: the soldier behind Amanda Tapping just before the opening sequence

    • Syndication air date: October 9, 2004.

    • Peter LaCroix previously played the Ashrak in "In the Line of Duty."

    • This episodes also shares some elements with The Outer Limits episode "Stream of Consciousness." More importantly, the producers are using the same temple implants that were used in that series.


    • Jack: Hello, Nevin.
      A few times in this episode, Jack greets Nevin by saying "Hello, Nevin" in a way and tone identical to the way Jerry says "Hello, Newman" on Seinfeld.
