Reviews of my favourite four episodes:
SG-1 help a team of SGC only to find themselves taken hostage by those
that they are helping. They discover that they are part of war games
that Apophis had created, the team tells the commander that Apophis is
dead but they don't believe them and continue their games, uses SG-1's
real weapons as part of the game!
I like the idea that Apophis has set up camps like these in order to help in
understanding the SGC and humans and what their weaknesses are. I thought it was
interesting and a fun episode and exciting especially when they get real
weapons out there. I was at first shocked when they entered through the Stargate
to find themselves in the midst of a war.
Sam learns from Martouf that her father has been taken hostage by Lord
Sakor, the Goa'uld who sees himself as the original devil. So Sam and
the team travel to the world of this prison to rescue her father. Once
there Martouf has to find out how much Sam's dad's Tokra, Selmak knows
of Sokar's impending attack. An old enemy appears at the end, that compromises
the mission as well as the "Hell" itself.
I loved this one, Sokar is really kewl and he looks good too, I light the
glyphs his members have, that looks good. I liked the idea that they had to break
into a prison and Daniel's fear made me laugh (not that I would be any different
mind you.) I really liked this episode and couldn't wait for the sequel to fins
out what ***** was going to do with them and whether Sokar would discover
The sequel to Jolinar's Memories, is more exciting than the first.
Using the "blood of Sokar" the team and the Tokra are forced
to live painful moments of their lives where they can't see memories
from reality. And Teal'c is told to deliver a bomb to the planet, destroying
the moon with SG-1 on it, they must escape before the moon explodes.
I really liked the sequel and I loved the idea that they had to get out
before it exploded (I really want teleporting rings!) I was annoyed when Sokar
was blown up, he's a better baddie than Apophis who is really starting to get on
my nerves. The Hell moon was really interesting and fun (for the viewers not
Daniel touches a Crystal Skull in a Mayan looking pyramid and finds
that the others can't see him. Traveling back through the gate with the
Crystal Skull in tow, SG-1 seeks the help of Daniel's "mad"
grandfather to help unlock the powers of the skull and bring Daniel back
into phase with everyone else. I don't know why I really liked this one, I just did, I guess it was because
of the idea of different phases that people can exist in. I thought the
parts about Daniel and his grandfather were quite funny and Daniel's embarrassment
of him. Watch it, it is simple but very interesting, I loved it.
