The SG-1 team arrive on a planet and are immediately captured by a race of aliens led by a group of Jaffa. These aliens claim that they have an unresolved dispute with our heroes - the only problem is that O'Neill and his crew can't recall ever meeting them before...

Double Jeopardy starts strangely and then descends into pure madness. Just under 12 minutes into the action and any devoted fan will start to wonder what the hell is going on. If you remember the season one episode Tin Man then you may be able to work out what the hell is going on. If not, don't worry everything is explained.

Directed by Michael Shanks this episode shows that there are consequences to SG-1's actions. While they believed on an earlier mission that they were doing some good, changing the way a culture operates is not necessarily a good idea.


Now that O'Neill and chums have a nice new attack ship what should they do with it? Helping the Tok'ra move base seems to be a good idea until one of their old foes decides to let Apophis know in on the act...

Exodus sees season four come to a gripping end. One scene worth watching out for is where Selmak and O'Neill are walking around the Goa'uld mothership. This is a particularly long one-take scene and if you watch closely you can see that they actually walk around the ship and end up back where they started. It's also great to see O'Neill questioning just exactly how he is supposed to know where to stand for the 'beam-out' rings to find him.

The ending is very reminiscent of a Star Trek: Voyager style plot but even a monkey should be able to work out how this will be resolved. Still, gripping entertainment.


"What? Is that my lot!" I hear you cry. "Two episodes! What a rip off!" Ah, but as to be expected from MGM (Have they ever let us down in the past?) there are tons of additional material here to keep everyone happy. Ignoring the excellent additional audio commentaries for each episode, there is also a look at season five, a glimpse of the 100th episode and a video diary by Teryl Rothery and several other interesting bits and pieces.

This is another great disc from MGM and well worth parting with your money. Lets hope season five lives up to what has been a fantastic fourth series.
