    4.0
    Very disappointing season finale. With all the wonderful ideas and story arcs they came up with in season 1 and 2 you would think they needn't use a flash back episode as a finale. It merely uses Hathor as an excuse to write a very weak idea and then fill it with clips from other episodes.
  • Emulates the 1965 film "36 Hours"

    7.0
    Emulates the 1965 spy thriller "36 Hours," starring James Garner, Eva Marie Saint, and Rod Taylor.



    Also uses cognates of characters from the TV series La Femme Nikita. Tom Butler plays "Major General Trofsky," a character strikingly reminiscent of the Eugene Robert Glazer character, "Operations." Samantha Ferris plays "Dr, Raully," a character strikingly reminiscent of the Alberta Watson character, "Madeline."



    The casting director probably had the look of the actors from La Femme Nikita in mind during the casting process.



    I really don't mind copycatting. All art is imitation. Including good art. Both these actors do a fine job. The problem is not with the performances.



    The problem is with the story. The producers use "36 Hours" merely as a framing device, as a flimsy pretext to use old clips.



    I hate clip shows. I fast forward through the clip portions and only watch the framing portion of the story.moreless
  • OUT OF MIND, OUT OF SIGHT!

    8.5
    In episode #44 SG-1's deadliest femme fatale returns with a vengeance! Suanne Braun is back as the notorious Goa'uld Queen with raw sensuality and steel heart, Hathor. SG-1's memories are blurred by obsession and confusion, when Colonel O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson) is lured into a deceptive web of lies and deceit as he begins to believe he has been frozen in stasis for about eighty years. As O'Neill begins to figure things out, so does Carter and Jackson -- and SG-1 faces a choice that will change their lives forever. I Tracey K. Nameth declare "The sexy factor is way past the inferno zone."moreless
  • A clip show finale? what were they thinking

    6.7
    This is probably the worst season finale in the show and overall not that good of an episode. It started with a good idea that Hathor kidnaps the team to find out what they know about the state of affairs in the galaxy but the use of the flashbacks made the episode slow and boring. This might have been got a better fan reaction had it been a midseason 2-parter but as an end to the season it really disappointed me and a lot of other fans I've talked to. The mystery at the beginning did not work as well as other episodes such as Forever in a Day. It was pretty obvious that it was not earth in the future and it was a Goa’uld plot. When this episode is compared to the season 1 finale there are so many things that are missing from this episode that Within the Serpents Grasp had. For one the humor is not up to par in this nor is the action that made the season 1 finale so great. I defiantly saw the reveal of Hathor coming and the cliffhanger was not very good.moreless
  • Too much flashbacks..

    7.8
    I do not know - for season final, it looked somehow weak. I could say fast forwarding the first half of this episode did not lose nothing as they offered nothing new, and the scenes later - it was just too visible that it is just one ugly trick and not another time travel. There was some excitement and the ending built up a great cliffhanger what really would make us want to see what is coming.



    The scenes where Teal'c was leaving - maybe that was the best part. It really showed that he is for the theme.. without the theme, there is so little for him.moreless
