  • Like the title says, it's the Other Guys' turn to save the world. This is one of the most entertaining SG-1 episodes you'll ever watch.

    I really loved this episode! From the opening sequence with the three scientists reminiscing in a "three stooges" fashion, I knew that this episode was going to be a fun detour from the usual stories.

    Two SGC scientists sneak aboard a Goa'uld mother-ship after SG-1 is captured, believing that they are SG-1's only means of escape. They later realize that the entire capture was staged with the help of the Tok'ra. They are then ordered to hide for the remainder of the mission. Just as they are regretting their actions, SG-1's cover is blown, and the Tok'ra insiders are exposed and killed. Now all hopes for survival depend on these two scientists' courage and bravery.

    There are some extremely funny sequences that are perfectly performed by Patrick McKenna (Felger), and John Billingsley (Coombs). Although this episode is very comedic, there are several dramatic and exciting moments as well. With a great story, and a great blend of humour, good acting, and action, this episode is definitely a classic that shouldn't be missed.
