  • SG-1 seeks to sabotage a goa'uld meeting...

    Pretty thrilling episode, with lots of good teamwork. As always Jack's humor carries the show along. But, more than that the minefield in which most of the episode takes place does create a palpable sense of tension. Daniel was actually really funny in this episode, especially when he was translating the user manual for the mine. The scenes where Teal'c were also really good with plenty of very convincing Teal'c strength.(Teal'c strength...that's redundant, literally) This episode is also important in that it ends up making Apophis an even bigger threat than before as he absorbs Heru-ur's forces. It really sets things up for the season finale.Not an episode you should skip, there's plenty of fun to be had with this one.
  • Trying to avoid unavoidable...

    So, Jacop his having lovely vacation on Earth with his daughter when it comes out there is a mission for them. Apophis and Heru-ur are trying to make an alliance what would be too powerful and they most avoid it - looks simple but the episode is filled with lot of tension, excitement, those moments you really are nervous. Great action episode and really interesting storyline.

    On the same time, they are on mission, Teal'c is captured and tortured but he manages to make one of his tortures to realize that he is not lying and help him. So, as he is also taken to the place where Goa'ulds are having little gathering, he manages to escape.

    For the big picture, things do not come out so well - they got the possible solution - only one System Lord of two alive. Heru-ur is dead and Apophis more powerful than ever. Really dark ending.
  • good episode...

    Teal'c is captured by a system lord but is eventually saved by a jaffa that turncoats. Meanwhile, Selmac, Carter, Daniel, and Jack plan to start a war between the two strongest system lords, but fail. Overall, the episode was pretty good. It had a good story line and it was nice to see Selmac again. When Carter and Daniel were working on the mine it was a little boreing and slow. It was nice to see a minefield for one of the first times in show. Basically, overall, it was a pretty good episode. It had a good story and it had some good action, though the torturing of Teal'c was a little much for me, and, overall, it proved that Anubis was the super power and the immediate enemey.
