    Mm.. quite funny episode, some real pearls were there. I love that kind of humor they have there. And again - fishing. No wonder why Teal'c do not like to go there. Anyway - the story itself was not worth much but the fun and little action and those bugs - oh, they made it so much better, added that kind of positive laughter what after so serious episodes is quite needed.



    Also loved the way how that paranoic char was built and the way he first looked like noone and then turned out most of the episode in the end was just to get him - on that part, cleverly plotted.moreless
  • ok episode...

    8.0
    An alien device that is brought back to earth attracts scary bug-like creatures to it. Apparently, anyone that comes in contact with it or anyone that comes in contact with someone who has been in contact with it becomes infected and they can see the creatures. All Carter and Jonas had to do was move around a few crystals and then they made it all better. Anyways, it was an interesting idea, but nothing special. Some guy that was infected freaked out and that part of the story line was stupid. Other than that, it was ok. Nothing special, nothing too bad.moreless
  • This episode was pretty good. But it was kinda simple. As far as Sg1 goes his was minor stuff. The bring back some kind of energy emitting device that causes halucinations.moreless

    Now Jack is going on vacation and he spreads this contagent to this small town that he stops in to get gas on his way fishing.

    But they have no idea how to stop it, Especially since they think it is a dissease. Jonas sees it first, then it is like a row of dominos.

    They have to track this gas station attendant who is already paranoid and now he is seeing things and thinks the government for it. Jack has to talk the man down out of hysteria. They get him home and they are able to minumize the damage to the public. Good show just not your normal everyday SG1 episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Trivia: This episode takes place "over three months" after the events of "Shadow Play."

    • In the scene where Jonas and Hammond are been given the results of the tests by Fraiser, in the background there is a lightboard and on it you can clearly see the same x-rays from "Singularity" that were taken of Cassie of the bomb in her chest.

    • Piedmont, Colorado is in Las Animas county, not Hawthorne as stated here. There is no Hawthorne county in Colorado.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Vernon: What do you get, like, four or five miles to the gallon in this thing?
      Jack: It's a pig.
      Vernon: I'm more of an El Camino fan, myself. The things are like catnip to the ladies, huh?
      Jack: Don't I know it.

    • Vernon: I served in the Gulf!
      Jack: What division?
      Vernon: ...Motor pool.

    • Vernon: So what planet are they from?
      Jack: Who?
      Vernon: The aliens.
      Jack: Oh. A place called 'Melmac'.
      Vernon: Isn't that where Alf is from?
      Jack: Who?
      Vernon: Alf. You know, on TV, the puppet.
      Jack: Never saw it.
      Vernon: No kidding...

    • Jack: I know this is a massive cliché, but the place is surrounded.

    • Jonas: You're suggesting I'm delusional?
      Jack: No. No, it's just possible that you were seeing something that...yes, that's what we're suggesting.

    • Hammond: Welcome back - how'd it go?
      Jack: Ah, General, you know how I like those sandy planets.
      Teal'c: The wind was most pleasant.
      Jack: Jaffa sarcasm at its finest.

  • NOTES (6)

    • Piedmont-Hawthorne Airport is an airport in Vancouver, B.C., where the series is shot. Also, we see Pacific Coastal airplanes in many shots, as well as a Westex airplane. Both airlines are very local, serving only the BC coast and nearby islands...nowhere near Colorado, where the fictional SG-1 is based.

    • The basic premise of this episode is reminiscent of the movie From Beyond.

    • The gag with ALF is that for part of its run it was on Monday nights on NBC opposite MacGyver on ABC. That explains Jack's (Richard Dean Anderson) comment about never having seen it.

    • Probably as a hidden joke in this episode, the producers used "Anderson Air" as the airplane that Vernon was hiding in as a reference to Richard Dean Anderson, who is the executive producer.

    • Aired Dec. 11 in UK.

    • Syndication airdate: December 21, 2003.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Vernon: Isn't that where Alf is from?
      ALF (1986-90) is an NBC sitcom that that featured Gordon Shumway, an alien nicknamed A.L.F. (Alien Life Form). Born in 1756 on the planet Melmac, Alf has full-body orange fur, a rippled snout, facial moles, and eight stomachs. Alf learns about Earth culture and makes friends with the Tanner family, with whom he takes refuge.
