I have watched Sight Unseen and didn't get the impression that the writers meant for it to be considered a humerous episode. It was certainly less serious than most others, but they still took themselves seriously. There were amusing moments, but nothing obvious like in Urgo, Window of Op, Wormhole X-Treme, or The Other Guys. It just didn't have the same flavor at all.
And on the humor note, I think the SG1 writers do a fantastic job of writing humor, partly because they know it's not their forte. They don't try to make it a sitcom every week, and they use situational comedy extremely sparingly. By generously spacing out the humorous eps, they don't pressure themselves to deliver. And the one-liners in every episode are always fantastic, though I know the credit for some of those goes to the actors like RDA. But SG1 isn't about the humor, so we appreciate it all the more when it shows up and makes such a good showing. :-)
