    A young boy ( with very marginal acting skills) arrives through the gate and tells the team that his planet has been annihilated by the goa'uld.The story gets a bit emotional in terms of Jack, since the young boy reminds him of his son. He finds that they have been under observation for weeks by an invisible woman. It's up o the team to find out whats going on and stop the strange aliens and a rebellios faction.moreless
  • LIKE A DEADLY GAME OF HIDE AND SEEK!

    5.5
    A young boy gains entry to the SGC and tell the SG-1 team he has come with his mother, a member of the invisible Reetou race. The boy, who asks to be called Charlie after O'Neill's dead son, announces that the Goa'uld destroyed his planet Reetalia and now Reetou rebels intend to kill all human beings. The rebels believe that by killing all potential hosts for the Goa'uld they will gradually eliminate the Goa'uld themselves. His mother created Charlie to serve as an intermediary between the Reetou and humans and to warn them of the coming rebel attack, but due to his accelerated growth, the boy's organs are now failing and unless he receives expert medical help he will die. The SG-1 team calls Carter's father Jacob, a Tok'ra to help them. He brings a laser device which can make the Reetou visible and destroy them. But, it may be too late. Thousands of Reetou are swarming outside the wormhole and an unknown number may have already gained entry into the SGC.moreless
  • Another bunch of bad guys want to kill all humans...

    8.8
    Really good episode, packed with action, humor, Tok'ra and new aliens. I always like to see and Jacob, and his performance in this episode was as usual very good. However, the center of the episode is Charlie the boy who was "made" by the Reetu Authority to warn the SGC. The affection between Jack and Charlie was very touching and fulfilled the emotional aspect of the episode. It was also fun to see the Tok'ra work directly with the SGC for the first time in the series, and we are introduced to TERs a weapon that we will see more of down the road. All in all a fun and riveting episode that shouldn't be skipped.moreless
  • Invisible enemies...

    7.4
    I do not know - it was good to watch but the story some how did not worked for me. It was great O'Neill centered episode and they were tearing apart his old wounds and we had To'kras around too, so it cannot be very bad and the storyline itself was interesting - they had never thought there would be enemies who they are not able to see - now they learned that one have been on their base for weeks and preparing for a coming of little boy who brings a warning - more are coming. A lot of action, shooting and effects but...moreless
  • Good Jack episode.

    8.6
    This was a very good episode that was very emotional for Jack. Charlie was a cool little kid and despite my usual dislike for child actors I think Jake did a great job and wish they would have brought him back. The Reetou were a weird race but they would have made an interesting enemy but like a lot of things in the first couple of seasons we never see them again. There were some good effects especially the shot on the planet with all the rebels. That scene reminded me of Starship Troopers with all the bugs. The last scene was sad and touching and a fitting end to an emotional episode.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Shortly after arriving at the SGC, Charlie tells Jack that he will only speak to him alone, so everyone leaves the room so they can talk. However, a guard can clearly be seen in the background throughout the remainder of the scene.

    • When Charlie first arrives, there is mention of SG-14 being off-world. This is the first mention of there being more than twelve SG teams.

    • When Jack, Daniel, and a third man are searching the hallways for rebel Reetou, the third man gets hit with a Reetou blast. However, there is a blast pattern on the door that outlines the position he landed in after getting hit.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Charlie: (panicking when he sees Teal'c) Jaffa!
      Jack: (to Teal'c) Get that a lot?

    • Jack: What do I call you?
      Charlie: I do not have a name.
      Jack: What does your mother call you?
      Charlie: 'Son'.

    • Dr. Fraiser: As far as I can tell, [Charlie's] human.
      Jack: No bomb in the chest, no little bio-hazard in his tooth?

    • Jack: Well, here's a question - how do we deal with an invisible threat?
      Sam: We need a way to detect it.
      Jack: Well, uh . . . that would be helpful . . .

    • Sam: Even though we can't see them, these Reetou, they can definitely see us.
      Teal'c: Which poses a great strategic disadvantage. I understand why the Gou'ald want to eliminate them.
      Jack: They're Goa'uld, Teal'c - that's their job!
