The SG-1 team discover a crystal human skull on another planet.
When Daniel Jackson stares into it's eye sockets he disappears
and knowing that Jackson's Grandfather discovered a similar
skull in 1971 which he claimed allowed him to travel to another
planet, the SG-1 team try to track him down to ask for his
help in recovering Jackson. When they do find him he is incarcerated
in a mental institution.
Skull explains, a little better, why Daniel Jackson was
so interested in the Stargate project and sees him laying
to rest ghosts of the past. Jackson's grandfather refused
to adopted him when his parents died and this has obviously
concerned the old man for many years.
is quiet a touching episode and the music is extremely well
placed. While this story is not original the way it is handled
is refreshingly so.
ending seemed a little rushed but all in all this is a cracking
O'Neill is transported aboard Asgard ship, which is orbiting
the Earth. Thor is nowhere to be seen and O'Neill soon discovers
that a swarm of Replicators (robotic spiders) are in the process
of taking over the space ship so that they can land it on
Earth and invest our planet. The only way to prevent this
is if O'Neill changes the crafts flight plans so that it burns
up on entering the Earth's atmosphere. Not a bad plan, but
as he is trapped aboard the vessel it will result in his death.
sees the introduction of the creepy Replicators who we will
definitely be seeing more of in the future and as this is
the last season of season 3 it wouldn't be complete without
a cliffhanger and this is quiet a good one. The action is
fast and furious and the pace rattles along at a nice, steady
effects are pretty impressive and the Replicators will have
any arachnophobes reaching for the off button on their TV
damn fine episode which brings to a close an excellent third
disc only carries two episodes and while they are cracking
episodes at that, fans will be forgiven for wanting more...
And more they get. The extras on the DVD include three 30min
behind the scenes documentary's which take fans behind the
camera. Just under 1hr: 30mins of quality programing more
than makes up for the lack of episodes on this volume. This
is a damn fine DVD and I am looking forward to see what season
four holds in store.
