Jack is missing in this episode where a scientist is
killed shortly after he phones Stargate Command. The
remaining members of SG-1 investigate strange occurrences
in Smalltown, USA and learn that the community has a
dark hidden secret. Sort of like 'Night Of The Living
Dead' meets 'The Bodysnatchers' as once again our brainiac
beauty Major Samantha Carter shows the boys how it's
A stunning episode on every level - entertainment, philosophically,
allegorically and thought-provokingly. Would win an
Emmy if sci-fi ever won an Emmy, that is. Jack is captured
by the Goa'uld who repeatedly torture him to death and
then use the sarcophagus to revive him to start all
over again. Knowing that his sanity and life is at stake,
Jack thinks he might be beyond saving when Daniel Jackson
appears to him in his cell but cannot intervene. But
can Jack hold out long enough to be rescued by SG-1?
Dean Stockwell stars in this intriguing tale back on
Jonas Quinn's home world. Stockwell plays a scientist
who asks for help in stopping an impending war on their
planet. SG-1 discovers that they are planning to use
a weapon of mass destruction in a pre-emptive strike
against their enemies, and must be stopped.
The Other Guys.... 9/10
Absolutely hilarious, exciting and inventive episode
that proves Stargate's greatness. Clearly referencing
Tom Stoppard's play and movie ' Rosencrantz and Guildenstern
Are Dead'. In that, you remember, Stoppard took two
minor characters from Shakespeare's Hamlet and spun
the whole story around them being unable to deviate
from their pre-ordained destiny.
This little gem features three of the Stargate backroom
boys and makes them the heroes when our Fab Four are
taken prisoner by a nasty Goa'uld who wants to do unspeakable
things to them.
