  • SG-1 seeks to aid a civilization that's losing a war...

    This was an excellent moral debate episode with plenty of cool action and weaponry mixed in. I find myself a little frustrated with Daniel at least in the first half of the episode he acts like a huge jerk, and he's slightly out of character and a little more judgmental of the Eurondans, than other civilizations they meet. However, it was good to see that he respected Jack's command towards the end, before Jack's apology. And of course in the end we learn his suspicion was justified when Jack learns to horrible truth about how the war started. The episode is somewhat lacking in the humor department, but kinda made up for it with the argument between Jack and Daniel. The pacing was unusually quick, I felt, for a morality episode, but this was a good thing as often times episodes that make the main focus a moral issue are dreadfully slow in other series(ahem...Star Trek, nothing against Trek but they've put out some very slow morality episodes). Great episode, don't skip this one.
