  • Awww Poor Daniel

    5.0
    A portion of the SG-1 team returns home and reveals that Daniel Jackson was killed on their gate mission. An investigation ensues to find out what happened and if ,at all, everything is what it seems.

    All in all this starts out as a decent mystery, what happened episode but like so many other shows it plays the "character" death card too early. We always now they aren't dead because the show airs for 10 years and this character is around for 8 of it. So in hindsight its kinda silly and wasted melodrama.



    Ohh and we can't forget the latex suited monster, epic 90's giant latex head madness.moreless
  • WHERE DANGER IS AT THE FOREFRONT!

    6.0
    The rest of SG-1 returns from a mission revealing Jackson died in a column of flames. Get ready for temperatures to rise as SG-1 goes into a personal dilemma when they think Daniel Jackson has died. More of a character development story than an action one but still worth watching. The fight for SG-1 has never been more personal. The first casualties of war are the people left behind in the aftermath. Will SG-1 discover the truth and find Daniel Jackson in time, or will the alien who has kidnapped Daniel Jackson win in his deception against SG-1. I Tracey K. Nameth say "Fire and Water" is worth a fair grade.moreless
  • After an expedition Jack, Teal'c and Sam return to reveal that Daniel died on the mission.

    5.0
    I could not believe how bad this episode was, this is Stargate SG-1! My favorite show, yet this one was one of a handful of garbage episode the writers spat out without thinking twice. After 30 minutes of this I could not wait for it to be over, desparatly waiting for something interesting that never came. The entire alien thing was boring. Just outright awful, I hope I never give another episode of SG-1 a rating this bad again. The only positive(I mean the only positive) was the laugh I had when O'neill broke the window Hammond's car and when he fould out who's car it was he says to Hammond "You should get that fixed", but even a classic O'neill moment can't save this one. Overall, horrible.moreless
  • Daniel is DEAD!

    8.0
    What's this? The team comes back from a planet without Daniel, saying that he's dead.

    Oh wait ... he's not dead. He has just been kidnapped by some fish guy, that wants help in translating some Goa'uld writing. Apparently, he wants to know what happened to his (should I say its) 'mate' (that's right, even fish people fall in love - no matter how ugly they are).

    Meanwhile, the rest of SG-1 was implanted with a memory of Daniel dying, and they had left the planet. But, our heroes can't be fooled that easily and they soon (well ... not that soon - it almost takes the whole episode - funeral and wake included) embark on a mission to go back to the planet in order to save Daniel.

    That needn't be done, as Daniel finds out that escaping the under-water home of this fish guy, is as easy as walking out (and swimming for a while).

    This one definitely classifies as a filler episode, as the story line is not enhanced in any way and we learn nothing new about the characters.

    We just learn of another race that has been defeated by the Goa'ulds. Even living under water can't save you from them apparently.

    It's still as entertaining as per usual SG standards and it also includes Jack destroying General Hammond's car (priceless!).moreless
  • Daniel "dies" for the first of many times in the series.

    7.8
    This is really a so so episode. It was nice to see Teal'c finally get off the base though. It's not a new concept though(character dies, only he's not really dead/gone) but it was pretty well executed. As, for the fish-guy, he was a very odd species, and we never see his species again, which I thought slightly odd since the way Daniel was speaking to him at the end I thought they were going to try to keep in touch. He did have some pretty fancy technology after all. But I digress. Merely an average episode and one that I often skip when watching the series in order. It really doesn't do anything for any overarching storyline...moreless
