: When Ra got blowed up real good by the nuclear bomb in his face, he had an appearance vaguely similar to that of a very large (Regular human-sized) Asgard, or perhaps a slightly less humanoid 'Unas' except a little scalier. The implication being that that was the true form of the Goa'uld.
also a (pretty successful) adaptation of a movie?
: Considering something for the pagequote:
"No, there won't be a sequel. But there will be a TV series and merchandise as far into the future as you can imagine."
