  • Karmic payback

    9.0
    Carter: But the fact is, she learned betrayal from Fifth. And he learned it from me.



    Carter, the sharpest tack in the box, knows karmic payback when she sees it.



    As sophisticated SF readers know, and as the Stargate series writers would be the first to admit, stories about alien worlds are really stories our own human society.



    Something to think about when formulating our own foreign and military policy, especially after 9/11 and the out of control War on Terror.moreless
  • This episode was ok but I think that they could have explored the whole RepliCarter storyline a bit better.

    8.8
    I understand Why Sam wanted to believe that the RepliCarter was good: she was made to her image so Sam wanted to believe that she was just like her. The repliCarter had her memories, her thoughts and maybe even her feeling so in Sam’s mind there was a hope that she was going to be good. Also I think that Sam always felt guilty for what she did to Fifth and therefore she felt responsible for the RepliCarter’s existence.

    The thing I don’t fully understand is why Teal’c didn’t see throw the replicator’s lies. I think that maybe he wanted to protect Sam or something.

    One other thing I noticed in this episode was the absence of Michael Shanks. He only appeared as Daniel Jackson for brief moments and also made a “cameo” as Thor’s voice.

    I think that the writers should have made someone more suspicious of the replicator’s intentions. Jack (as always) warned everyone that this was a replicator and could not be trusted but nevertheless allowed the replicator to go to the Alpha site. Why? And why did they let her look at the plans of the weapon? Did no one think that she could do what she did? That is the part of the episode that I think could be better.

    All and all I liked this episode. Earth has now a new and ingenious enemy. Sam felt guilty for her actions and blames herself for what happen. In conclusion all I can say is that this was a good but not great.

  • worst episode of stargate ever

    0.1
    now generally i wont rant or rave about anything at all and am quite open minded, but this particular episode of stargate sg1 was utterly rubbish.they took sam carter who always comes across as the smartest and most logical person on the team and made her look like an utter utter retard with no brains whatsoever.hell the dumbest person in the world with no logic at all could have seen how the replicator was using her. the writers really need to work on that alot.



    due to this reason i have had to score this episode 0.1 out of 10moreless
  • two Carters....

    6.5
    The replicator Carter contacts earth and asks them to kill her. However, she actually wants to find a way to counter the disrupter and she does so, killing Fifth on the way. Anyways, it was an important episode to have because it makes the replicators into a real threat to the galaxy and puts Carter in charge of them. There was some humor in the episode, but not a lot. I thought the episode was pretty dull and boreing. It was also predictable. Oh well, it was an interesting idea but it was just a very boreing way to bring it about.moreless
  • Amazing

    9.0
    Wow, I most say. It was... quite nasty storyline and somehow.. I do not know. I adore the idea.. so so much.. that Carter sees her replicated version and trust her, takes her as she is her.. and that trust is ofcourse betrayed and she just cannot help to blame her - now the replicators know how their only weapon work and they are immune to it. And all because Carter wanted that her replicator could help them. It was a trap from the beginning and ... even if we knew it, it looked like it has all done with fifth but no - she was going on her own plot. Now Daniel (in that alternate vision) is not only one trying to take over the world. She has done it too.



    I really liked to story, the question, ethical dilemmas it rise, all that conspiracy and the question of trust. It was all worth it. Somehow, I feel, the script did not had the full potential all was there something else lacking but it did not had the sense of completeness.moreless
