  • Heineken?

    8.0
    The episode begins with a product placement for Heineken.



    But as Frank Booth in "Blue Velvet" said,



    "Heineken? F**k that s**t! Pabst Blue Ribbon!"
  • Looks like the Cold War isn't over..

    7.3
    I knew those Russians can't be trusted, I just knew it! From the beginning to the end this episode promised to be exciting. And I mean exciting compared to most filler episodes, so not really exciting at all, but still quite pleasant.





    First thing we see is Jack, followed by a close up shot of Heineken. I wonder how much SG-1 got paid for that one! Not only do we see Jack, but we actually see Jack at his home. Not in the concrete hole we call Cheyenne Mountain.





    Inside is an old guy waiting for Jack. I hate it when old men appear in TV shows als old enemies or friends and suddenly think they can do whatever they want. Glad he turned out to be a Goa'uld, doesn't leave me awake at night!



    Nonono, the real exciting bit was near the end, when General Kislev turned out to be a Goa'uld as well! Didn't see that one coming! And guess what? He wants to fire missiles at the US!





    Everyone hates the US.moreless
  • Should have been better.

    8.0
    There's a plot afoot by the Goa'uld to get the American and Russian governments to declare war on each other, and thereby destroy themselves...



    The episode starts off brilliantly, with a great exchange between O'Neill and Kinsey - who has broken into his house - in which Kinsey asked for O'Neill's help. To save the world...



    After that, the episode drifts in and out of mediocrity, following Daniel as he tries to talk sense into the Russians, and O'Neill as the country starts preparing for war.



    Meanwhile, the Prometheus is in search of the ship the Trust - now mostly implanted with Goa'ulds - are using...



    Not as good as it could have been, though not a bad way to waste an hour.moreless
  • another trust episode...

    7.5
    Kinsey meets with Jack O'Neill and offers Jack help to take down the trust. In the end, it turns out Kinsey was a goa'uld and so was a Russian general. The countries were all going on full alert and nuclear war was imminent, but everything turned out all right in the end. I really don't like the story line of the trust. It's getting old and annoying, oh, and I can't stand Kinsey. Anyways, this story was mildly interesting. Goa'uld taking over key positions in governments is kind of interesting. Overall, ok episode, pretty boreing, nothing too great nothing that terrible.moreless
  • Tension

    7.2
    So, this episode was the tension one. Nothing much happened. Daniel had change to speak russian and it was not the worst. We had Kinsey on picture again (I still do not like him). It looks like all the old pieces are picken up - Maybourne in last episode, Kinsey and Trust here. I usually do not like those on Earth situation with some exceptions. This one was one of those I did not find too amazing. It had great story and catching moments where was much tension but overall, it offered us nothing. I had higher hopes toward this episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • If the Prometheus is searching for a cloaked Alkesh, why would their shields be down? The ship should have been at battle stations from the moment it lost the transmission.

    • O'Neill apparently goes grocery shopping with a gun in his back pocket.

    • There is no blood in the syringe after it is supposedly used on Daniel by the Russians to test for the presence of a Goa'uld symbiote.

    • When Prometheus is firing on Osiris' ship we can see Kinsey almost struggling when the ship is shaking but the curtains in the background do not move.

    • When Teal'c enters the ring room on Prometheus in order to stop Kinsey from escaping, he points a zat as if to fire it. It is in the closed position, so he couldn't have fired it without wasting time by opening it.

  • QUOTES (10)

  • NOTES (7)

    • Jack: I'm sorry, I must have missed an episode. I thought you guys were working together?
      This could be an inside joke/reference to Affinity and Covenant, the episodes that introduced the Trust, shown out of order.

    • All of the Trust members' assumed names are those of superheroes: (Clark) Kent, (Bruce) Wayne, and (Peter) Parker.

    • At the beginning, Jack talks with somebody named Andy on the phone - another inside joke to the director.

    • This is the seventy-sixth appearance of Gary Jones (Sgt. Walter Davis/Harriman) on the series. As of this episode, he has appeared in more episodes than any other guest star. Prior to this episode, Teryl Rothery (Dr. Janet Fraiser) held that distinction.

    • Originally aired in the UK on the 11th of January 2005.

    • The surveillance van the team is driving says 'Mikita Couriers' on the side of it - an in-joke reference to director Andy Mikita.

    • It is mentioned that Kiselev has glaucoma. This is a subject near and dear to Richard Dean Anderson - his MacGyver co-star, Dana Elcar, began losing his sight to the illness while he was on that show. Mr. Elcar's illness was incorporated onto his character Pete and featured in at least one "message" episode, "Blind Faith", and it was incorporated into several other episodes.
