On a routine mission, SG-1 encounters a civilisation desperate
to be freed from the clutches of a Goa'uld. While on the planet,
Jonas falls ill and is suspended from active duty. His mysterious
illness is diagnosed as a brain tumour but gives him the ability
to glimpse the future... a future where O'Neill and SG-1 are
walking into a trap...
feels as thought it was designed for Corin Nemec's character
to bow out of the series and allow for Daniel Jackson's return
- whether that is the case is up to you to find out by watching,
but it is not one of the most original SG-1 episodes.
However it is a well written episode and it is interesting
to see how the plot is woven together.
Jackson appears to O'Neill and alerts him that Anubis has
located the Eye of Ra, a fabled object of power hidden somewhere
on Abydos. With Daniel's help, O'Neill and SG-1 find the Eye
first. But, determined to have it, Anubis threatens to destroy
the entire planet unless Daniel and SG-1 hand it over...
has some fantastic scenes between Richard
Dean Anderson and Michael Shanks which add credibility and
much needed humour. It was also interesting to learn that
the conclusion of this episode was written in such a way that
it would keep the door open for a seventh season, a movie,
or simply conclude the whole series. A good episode which
brings back a few old friends.
There are extra extras on this disc - as with all season conclusions
there are only two episodes on this DVD. However, this time
around there seems to be fewer extras than normal - if you
follow me. The only additional feature is a one hour special
on season seven of Stargate. While this is entertaining
I was expecting a little more.
