  • Just saw this again after many years and it struck me as being one of the excellent episodes of Season 6.

    Despite having neither Jack O'Neill nor Daniel Jackson in it the performance of Samantha Carter (in reality of Amanda Tapping) made this a pleasure to watch. For once the writers gave her a script that she could get her teeth into. Unlike many later episodes where all she was called all to do was to say "Yes sir" to Jack and then produce a mouthful of technobabble! Amanda's conversations with Corin Nemec (Jonas Quinn) were delightful and brought many a smile to my face.

    The plot was a homage to the X-Files (nothing wrong there) although the townsfolk of Steveston were rather wooden and over-the-top.

    Still it did show just how brilliant Amanda Tapping is when she gets a good script.
  • Strange down...

    Mm.. this episode was somehow maybe too clichee - who has not seen the storyline before - little down in the middle of nowhere and all the people are something else they seem? I can county quite many. Anyway, on it's own and if not think that idea has so much used, it was funny and exciting - all that kind of murder solving - find the little glues and put together the greater picture. And even if the ending, again was little clichee, it was funny to watch - it was so sure that Sam is not under the influence of the Goa'uld and she is just fooling. And those guys were not as smart as they thought. Another Goa'uld invasion stopped.
  • not my favorite episode...

    Carter, Teal'c, and Jonas go to a small city to investigate the disappearance of a scientist that called Sam before he disappeared. It turned out that some scientists cloned symbiotes and the townspeople were all hosts. The team runs into some resistance with the goa'ulds but they prevail. Basically, the episode was ok and had an ok story line. However, it was pretty slow and boreing and very predicatable. There were a few funny moments with Jonas, but, other than that, it was pretty dry. It was sad that Jack wasn't in it at all, being that he's a host at the moment. The show is pitiful without Jack.
