  • Love asteroids.. crashing to Earth specially..

    It was one of very adventurous and exciting episode - full action package from the first minutes to the end - a lot of heroic moment, that kind of good save the day plot with unexpected turns. I really loved the episode - I have always loved movies where there is something like that crashing from sky.. some mini series.. but this was the first time I saw it on tv serie.. and it looked stunning. Also some funny moment, that is always part of SG-1.. And the way they first thought it was totally something else than the realized later.. a boogytrap.. great episode.
  • ok episode....

    An asteroid is on a collision course to earth and SG-1 has to stop it, and they do, of course. This episode was ok; it wasn't anything special. The whole asteroid crashing into earth has been done by tv and movies a lot and I just didn't care to see Stargate do it also. The episode had some good moments though. I liked seeing that Hammond was going to go down with the SGC like a captain goes down with his ship, that was cool. Other than that, however, the episode was pretty mediocre and mildly interesting. Not one of my favorites...
