  • An overly complex story line, over-dramatic music, cheesy graphics, and, quite frankly, one of the best episodes I have ever seen.

    What I said up there is true. Everything about this episode is over trodden and cliched. Yet somehow I absolutely love this episode. So the music is a little over dramatic. So the graphics are a little cheesy. So the Asgard are portrayed as the grays from Roswell. Who cares? This episode is just so awesome. There are several episodes that I would prefer to skip next time I watch this series (mainly Season 1 Episode 4, I think you all agree with me), but this one is probably one of the ones I am going to watch over and over again. Yes, it is just that good. It's really funny, suspenseful, you gotta love Teal'c. And Daniel's comments about Jack are priceless. Simply put, this episode rocks.
