I always liked the ending. The end credits part of it. Found it amusing.

I remember thinking, "Man, this is cheesy," when I first saw it; by the end of the episode I had seen how easily they embraced the cheese factor, and had purposely incorporated it into the story. This is one of the episodes that elevated SG1 from campy, but entertaining to great sci-fi in my eyes. :)

Yeah. It's a good sign when the franchise can wink at itself like this. :D

I laughed my ass off at the episode when I saw it. It rewards die-hard fans of the series with so many in-jokes that I thought 'man, this show is awesome for being able to do this kind of episodes.'

It's sequel of sorts, '200', is even better and bolder than 'Wormhole X-treme'. The short parody of Star Trek blew me off my chair:

I liked these sort of episodes. Especially Citizen Joe.

I watched Citizen Joe without knowing Joe is the voice of Homer Simpson. Funny thing I have seen the guy all over the place using I assume his regular voice.
