    Yeah I'm sure in ALL alternate realities Jack still retires and isn't the lead of SG1... ;)

    Well, they wanted to sacrifice our Earth (to the Wraith) for theirs...that level of selfishness rises to Evil, I'd say!

    While certainly this is true and I think the intent of the writers, the problem I had with it is that it was a bit hypocritical. I mean, our SG-1 was essentially planning on doing the same thing to at least Janet's universe, except Janet's Earth was being sacrificed to the Ori plague and not the Wraith. Sure, we didn't go out with the plan to screw over another universe like Black SG-1, we were just doing a little damage control, but as witnessed by Janet's conversation with the General (can't remember his name :rolleyes: ), the damage control was basically for our benefit, and we weren't as concerned about how it would effect the 16 other universes. It's all about perspective I guess.

    When Black SG-1 took over the ship and started heading for Atlantis, I had a brief thought that it would be cool if they had a crossover episode with SGA and finished out the story on that show. I kind of wished they had. As it was, I thought the final act was a bit too quick and easy.

    Am I wrong, or were our SG-1 and the Evil Twins the only two teams on the ship? I wonder how come all of the teams didn't get to go, or more specifically, I wonder why Black SG-1 were the ones to get picked to go over the others? I guess because Black Sam was the original one to come up with the idea.

    Nope, they covered this. Check around the 24 minute mark. Carter and the scientist are talking about entropic cascade failure (or lack there of). And yes, I need to get a life.

    The difference is huge. Evil SG-1 deliberately went to another universe in order to destroy that Earth for their own benefit. "Our" SGC merely wanted to stop the other teams from continuing to come here. "We" weren't destroying other worlds, directly or indirectly; we were just trying to re-establish the status quo. The problem on the other Earth with the Ori plague wasn't our fault. The destruction of our galaxy by the Wraith WOULD have been Evil SG-1's fault--and they would have done it on purpose.

    Great big huge honking difference!

    I thought Jack was promoted again. Wasn't he wearing two stars when he did his cameos early this season, instead of the one star from season eight.

    Yeah, he's the oversight guy in Washington, same role that Hammond had during Jack's brief stint running SGC.

    one thing that bothered me is that nobody suspected anything when the first SG-1 came back wearing different uniforms :rolleyes:

    Do you mean Martouf/Lantesh, the Tok'Ra? He was introduced with the Tok'Ra in season 2 and has appeared a half-dozen times since then, with some pseudo-romantic chemistry with Samantha.

    IIRC, Martouf became deceased along the way, so his appearance was a resurrection as well.

    I thought there wasn't enough variation in the multiverse SG-1 teams. There should have been at least one team where Tealc was still bald. Members should have been killed, teams reshuffled, relationships altered etc...

    There should have also been a team with Jonas Quinn (Corin Nemec) and Kawalsky as mentioned. It was like they could only afford or get those 2 guest actors.

    most of the variations centered on Sam, for some reason...she was on maternity leave in one, married in another, divorced in yet another...

    she leads a full life anywhere but our earth!

    I like how they deliberately never mentioned who Sam had married on one of the alternates. I kept on waiting for them to say that it was Jack, but nope, they kept getting interupted...

    I liked how that one team was more like a redneck version of SG-1 with everybody carrying the biggest weapon they can handle and Mitchell looking/talking like he was chewing tobacco... I almost expected them to be wearing a rebel flag patch.

    Another good moment was when Walter "Mr. Chevron 1 encoded" was caught staring by the new Asgard.

    There was some varation. There was at least one team with only Mitchell as the recognizable member (in the elevator). The team with Janet. The astronaut team.

    The actors who play Janet and Martouf are Canadian and probably easier to book and put up for the production compared to RDA and Corin Nemec who would have to come from California.

    I still wish Kurt Russell would drop in for an alternate reality spin. So he's a movie star...big deal. So was/is Beau Bridges!
