    So a hibernating Goa'uld is awakened in south America and makes her way to SG-1 headquarters where she has the power to control men to her whim. She gets the entire males staff of the base under her control and mates with Daniel and gives birth to hundreds of Goa'uld in a hot tub.

    It's up to Sam and the rest of the female staff to kick Hathors butt and free the men.

    For me it was just kinda predictable and "whatever". Nothing new was learned about anyone or anything it was just a filler kinda fluff siren song episode like every other Sci FI show has.moreless
  • SHE'S RED-HEADED, SHE'S HOT, LETHAL AND SEXY!

    10
    Get ready for temperatures to rise as the sexiest Goa'uld villian ever, Hathor, explodes on to the small screen for the first time! With the men on the base seduced by the evil Hathor it's up to the women and the unaffected Teal'c on the base led by Captain Carter to out-fight, out-seduce and out-maneuver the forces that threaten to destroy the world. More than that Hathor intends to take over the entire Milky Way galaxy. More couldn't be at stake than this. If Carter and company fail Earth loses. Game over. I Tracey K. Nameth declare "The sexy factor is way in the red zone."moreless
  • Hathor has all the men in the SGC under a spell, so it's up to the women + the unaffected Teal'c to save the day.

    9.0
    Hathor is awakened in a Mayan temple by some unfortunate explorers. She's attracted to the Stargate in some way and finds her way to Cheyenne mountain.

    She doesn't hide the fact that she's Goa'uld - but she insists that she's on the people's side and is glad that Ra was killed. Naturally, the team is a bit skeptical at first, but a few kisses of the hand, reminiscent of the Godfather, with some pink smoke coming out ... and presto, all the men in the SGC are under her spell. It doesn't help that she's incredibly beautiful as well.

    Unfortunately for her, the women in the SGC are not convinced, and soon enough we find out that she's as evil as the other Goa'ulds, even more so as she's a queen and her plan is to "make" little Goa'uld babies with Daniel (which seems to be the easiest person in the world to seduce) to invade the planet.

    But not to fear, the ladies on the base are on the job and with a little help from their unaffected Jaffa friend, they foil her plan.

    Of course someone still needs to explain to me how Hathor got from the bath tub in the locker room (which spontaneously combusted when shot at - huh?) to the stargate room, in a matter of seconds. Or how she always managed to stay dry, even when coming out of a bath tub full of water.

    But, that would be nitpicking on an entertaining episode.moreless
  • Hathor unleashes a different kind of technology on the men of the SGC

    8.0
    This was a pretty good episode, though at times it felt a little too much like the "reproductive organs" line from the pilot. Especially when the ladies were talking about how they "can't be one of the guys" in their cell. Some of those lines had me close to gagging. As much as I love Frasier these were her worst moments on the show. I must say that I loved the concept if not the execution of the episode though. A hypnotically beautiful woman who uses Goa'uld technology as well as her beauty to conquer rather than pure force. Then the ladies come to the rescue, which is also pretty cool. The concept was fairly unique so I say that is was above average.moreless
  • Made me mad at times, but overall average.

    7.4
    This one was really the first of many "weird" episodes, but was also a babe episode. After all the men of the SGC start to worship Hathor, the mother of all Goa'uld, its up to Carter to stop her. It was just painful to see Hathor come in and almost ruin everything the SGC have been doing for the past 6 months and infest Earth with symbiotes but Carter comes to the rescue(again). I have to say, the character of Samantha Carter is everything I want in a girlfriend and wow does she kick ass in this one. After the men are all hypotized, Carter rallies the women of the SGC(so funny seeing Dr. Fraiser with a gun) to save the world from Hathor. Oh yeah, O'neill gets a symbiote in this one, which at first made me think this one was going downhill but it turned out ok. Hathor was killed easily enough(conpared to other Goa'uld SG-1 take down), it was also funny to see Daniels face after Hathor is shot like 11 time by Carter. Average episode but I hate seeing a Goa'uld come that close to screwing over Earth. Average.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Towards the end of the episode when you see Hathor coming up out of the spa you can clearly see it is a reverse shot of her going into the water. Also when she gets out of the water she is completely dry.

    • Hathor manages to get out of her bath which has just burst into flames (for no apparent reason but that's not important) but only a few minutes later, she is completely dry and her clothes are not even slightly singed.

    • When Hathor turns Jack into her first new Jaffa, you can see the line between his chest and the prosthetic that gives him the Jaffa "pouch".

    • Carter says she's surfing the web to locate information on Hathor, but the URL on the monitor is pointing to a local file on the hard drive.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Fraiser: Gentlemen, there are five women in here very alone.
      Sam: Why do I feel like I'm in a Women Behind Bars movie?

    • Sam: (after knocking Hammond unconscious) Yeah, my career is over.
      Fraiser: Don't worry about it. I can fix him up good as new when this thing is over.
      Sam: Great, so he can bring me up on charges.

    • Jack: Do we really think anyone's going to believe that woman if she goes around blabbing about a 'Stargate?' I mean, I have a hard enough time believing that woman down on 73rd who walks around talking about these little devil people who live in her hair. Even though she could use a little conditioner.

    • Hathor: You, with the crown of marble.
      Jack: She might mean you, sir.
      Hathor: You are the ruler here?
      Hammond: Yes, ma'am.
      Hathor: May we take your hand?
      Hammond: Why?
      Hathor: We wish to kiss it, to bless you with fertility and joy.
      Jack: Well, you can't pass that up, sir.

    • Daniel: Hathor was the Egyptian goddess for fertility, inebrity and music.
      Jack: Sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll?
      Daniel: In a manner of speaking.

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Carter: My mama said there'd be days like this.
      References Mama Said, a song by The Shirelles and it made the saying "My mama said there'd be days like this."

    • Hathor
      The feminine goddess par excellence in ancient Egypt, Hathor was a pre-Dynastic goddess who gained enormous popularity early on. Her name is translated as "the House of Horus", which may be a reference to her as the embodiment of the sky in her role of the Celestial Cow, being that which surrounds the decidedly sky-oriented hawk-deity, Horus, when he takes wing. If Horus was the god associated with the living king, Hathor was the god associated with the living queen.
