  • Good episode, nice twists.

    This was a fun episode that made me confused, entertained, angry, and relieved. Its not so interesting when they meet the weird guy who seems to be they one running the huge facility they are in. He changes them in some way as soon as they arrived and they leave as soon as they realized what he has done(they know he changed them, but now exactly in what way). But after undergoing a routine checkup by Doc Fraiser upon their arrival at the SGC, you find out they are machines! Wow, that was a quick one that struck home. SG-1, or rather robo SG-1 pleads to General Hammond to send them back to the planet to get their bodies back. He lets them go. When they arrive the little man refuses to help or rather ignores their persistence, until O'neill gets mad and demands they get their bodies back. He answers that it would not be possible and this gets SG-1(and me) pretty pissed off......Then another big shocker, they are clones! The real SG-1 was safe and sound but restrained in a chamber of the complex, he said he was going to released them and that they were only clones. This gets robO'neill understandably mad, a funny scene between the two O'neills follows and SG-1(the real ones) are allowed to leave while their clones with stay, bury their gate and promise to never be heard from again. Clever episode, two twist I never saw coming. This episode is a good above average installment. One of the better episodes in season 1.
