    8.0
    The team aids a man that is running and asks for aid. When they help the man escape they are found guilty of a crime and sent to an underground prison. While trying to find a way out they meet a woman that holds influence over the other prisoners. As the team escapes and they take her with them they find that she is in-fact a mad scientist and known throughout the galaxy as the destroyer of worlds.moreless
  • EXILED!

    4.0
    SG-1 is put on trial and exiled to a prison world, where a woman maintains a strange control over her fellow prisoners. Tough break for SG-1 in this episode as their standard recon mission goes awry. General Hammond and SG-9, a specialty diplomatic unit, led by Major Kovacek try desperately to free SG-1 but to no luck. But lucky for SG-1 they escape on their own with a mysterious woman. Not so much an action packed episode but more of a psychological one. Who is this mad woman that escapes with them? SG-1 is about to find out. The end?moreless
  • boring...

    I watched this episode and it was so boring episode in season two. That planet have no rights to sent SG-1 to prison for life, that is so stupid! The prison take in secret place maybe in underground or anywhere, who knows. The team are depersate to find a way to get out of this prison. But there is only one way out is Stargate but they have to fix to do it. There is not much of action there. It is just of SG1 are trying to get out of this prison, that is it. There is not good storyline there.moreless
  • SG-1 gets jailed...

    8.8
    SG-1 helps out a man and unwittingly becomes his accomplice. As a result, SG-1 in sent to a planet with seemingly no escape. I enjoyed this episode largely for Jack's usual humor, but I also thought the idea of using the gate as a door to the inescapable prison was a cool idea. What SG-1 didn't know is how bad the person the allied themselves with was. In the end they let the war criminal escape. I thought this was a fantastic way to end the episode, showing that our heroes are definitely not perfect. This also left the door open for another fun episode down the road.moreless
  • After assisting a man convicted of murder, SG-1 is sent through a Stargate to a prison world made to house the scum of the galaxy.

    7.8
    Good episode, fun interaction between SG-1 and the prisoners and an interesting concept of a sort of 'prison world". I didn't like the character of Linea, I saw right through her, and I just hated her at the end of the episode. It kept me entertained but wasn't a "stand-up" episode, no major plot twists but a decent setup to Linea as a future villian. The entire betrayal was not too surprising so it didn't quite get that effect on me. Good dialogue here and there from an episode with not too much action, a nice break from the Goa'uld. Overall, good.moreless
