  • Let's play...

    The premise of this episode has been done over and over again on different shows. nevertheless, it works!

    Teal'c gets trapped inside a simulation in which Goa'uld are attacking the SGC with Super soldiers. The only way for Teal'c to get out of the 'game' is for him to win. Unfortunately, the simulation is interfaced with his brain and learns from him, eventually making it impossible for him to complete the objective.

    As I said, this has been done before, many times. In fact, its Red Dwarf counterpart episode 'Better Than Life' is one I am also very fond of. But I think the reason they keep making episodes like these, is because it is a very interesting premise; after all, who wouldn't want to experience virtual reality?

    Character-wise, this episode reveals a lot about Teal'c, and lays bare the doubts he still carries deep within him on whether they really can beat the Goa'uld.

    Excellent episode!
