I've seen some Stargate SG-1 episodes before, perhaps 2 seasons worth in total, but spread out over all the RDA seasons. But now we bought the complete SG-1 collection, and today we started watching.

I'd like to keep spoiler-free as far as possible, so only episodes that have been mentioned by me in this thread can be discussed (if I list it, I've seen it). However, this isn't meant to be a monolog, so if you have anything to say about an episode, please join me!

Season 1

Children of the Gods

Great pilot episode, and the switch from the movie actors to the series was pretty seamless IMO. The biggest surprise was the nude scene, I certainly didn't expect it in SG-1! I knew about the tip of the hat to MacGyver, but it still made me laugh. 8/10

The Enemy Within

A very strong second episode that seems to set the tone for the rest of the show. We'll see. I really like Teal'c's loyalty. 8/10

That's an awesome show! I liked it a lot, but I hate to say, I like Stargate Atlantis more, I know it's a spin off but I like it. RDA does an outstanding job in SG-1 Hope you enjoy it! :D

Say... as you watch it would you please let me know if they ever speak of Ra anymore? I'm not sure how they tied him from the movie into the show - IF they did. THANKS! I wish I had them all to watch too, very cool undertaking!

They did mention Ra in the pilot, first when they discussed whether or not the gate at Abydos had been destroyed and O'Neill said that the tactical warhead had destroyed his ship. Then again, when they had seen Anubis, the god of the night, Jackson compared him to Ra, the god of the sun.

I've seen a fair bit of SG-1 now, but sadly, I still can't find a way to see it in order, so I'm probably not enjoying it as a much as it could. There's a lot I don't understand. Still, it's a fairly entertaining show. I don't think it really got good until the later seasons, though.

As for "Children of the Gods," I just saw it a few weeks back. I thought it was good, but not great. Teal'c's change of heart seemed a little too sudden. But overall, it was plenty entertaining. I'd say it was less impressive than "Rising" (the Atlantis premiere and a damn fine piece of television) but better than "Air" (the somewhat disappointing first episode of Universe).

Emancipation

This one was sort of interesting but also the least believable so far. On an away mission to a planet whose population could be the descendants of Ghenghis Khan and where women are treated as chattel, Carter is kidnapped and sold to a chieftain who's truly a nasty piece of work. The team manages to free Carter and in the process liberate the enslaved women, and the latter part was the unbelievable bit. I simply can't believe that they'd be able to change a culture so quickly, never mind that they had ancient legends about women having been free before the transportation to the planet.

The Broca Divide

On a visit to a planet, members of the SG-1 team become infected by a virus that turn them into mindless brutes. On the planet, inhabitants who become infected are thought to be cursed and are segregated from the rest of the population. The doctors at the base find a cure for the infection both for the team and for the inhabitants of the planet.

The first episode where the whole base was put on lockdown because of an invisible threat, rather than aliens coming through the stargate. I thought that the planet with a dayside and a nightside was quite interesting, if unscientific (green trees can't survive in the dark). The makeup for the victims was very well done.


The First Commandment


The SG-1 team is sent to rescue the SG-9 team after a mission goes wrong. The planetary population has come to believe that Jonas, former lover of Carter and the leader of the SG-9 team is a god, to the point that they're willing to sacrifice their lives to his every whim.

A rather refreshing episode, egomaniacs who get what's coming to them are always entertaining to watch. Although I'm a bit sad that they sacrificed Jonas so early, there could have been room for interesting plot developments.


Cold Lazarus

On a desert planet populated only by blue crystals, O'Neill is replicated by an energy being who replaces him on the SG-1 team for the return to base. Later, the real O'Neill revives, gets back home and has the devil of a job convincing General Hammond that he's the real thing. By the time this happens, the fake O'Neill has already left the base, got in touch with Sara O'Neill with emotional consequences.

I quite like the fact that the real O'Neill later gets to somehow come to terms with his son's death thanks to the energy being.


The Nox

The SG-1 team is sent to investigate a planet where an animal is said to have powers of invisibility because the government is disappointed in the fact that the SG program is yet to produce any usable technology. Once on the planet, the team runs into Apophis who has a new force shield and kills the team with his staff while remaining invulnerable himself. After being revived by the Nox, the team later learns that these people have the powers of invisibility. They are unable to persuade the Nox that they need protection from Apophis. With good reason as it turns out.

I knew the instant I saw the Nox that there had to be more to these people than met the eye. Particularly since they were so insistent that they didn't need human help to defend against a race that didn't need stargates to threaten them.


Brief Candle


On the planet Argos, O'Neill is seduced by one of the inhabitants and catches the infection that gives them only 100 days to live. With O'Neill's help, the Argosians eventually realize that they were the victims of a cruel medical experiment rather than people chosen to be happy. They overturn the image of the god who promised the Argosians happiness, and in the process partly destroy the system that ensures that all Argosians are unconscious during the night. The SG-1 team manages to revive the inhabitants and let their immune systems take care of the infection.

This episode is rather unbelievable IMO, but interesting for the fact that it is the first appearance of the replicators. Special mention to the very good aging makeup on O'Neill.

I have to say SG1 is one of my all time favorite shows. I watched it when it started all the way til it went off the air. I just recently completed the dvd collection and it's been fun to watch it over again.

Oh, and as for the nude scene, you have to remember when SG1 first started on television it was made by Showtime.

Thor's Hammer

Interesting episode, and Unas was really cool. I have a thing for JEJ's voice. I must admit that the final solution was a bit too neat, they should've shown Daniel's torment over possibly losing the chance of rescuing his wife forever a bit more.


The Torment of Tantalus

Ernest's rescue coming at the literal last minute was a bit much, but other than that I thought it was cool to find out that they managed to get the gate working in 1947.

A little SciFi interjection:

In Buck Rogers and the 25th Century (my new obsession of the week)... they used Star Gates to travel vast distances quickly in just their fighter craft. Just an observation on how certain elements are in a lot of SciFi shows.

Just my little 2 cents worth regarding the new version of Children of the Gods. If you havent seen it they added some effects, and changed some things. It had it's merits but I prefer the original pilot much better

I haven't seen it and probably won't. Deleting the MacGyver reference is unforgivable IMO. :P

Bloodlines

I liked seeing more of the Jaffa culture, and Teal'c's family. Bra'tac's awesome, and I'm glad to know we'll see more of him.


Fire And Water

Interesting ep once again. The alien was really cool looking, for once something more than just a few ridges on the forehead and slightly modified ears and noses... Still, a lifespan of millennia was a bit hard to swallow for me. Of course, much of the drama of this episode was moot, since I already knew that Daniel Jackson would get back to base.

Hathor

A really creepy episode when all the men were as if hypnotized. Carter saved the day, yay!

Singularity

Interesting story about an explosive girl. :P It did bug me a bit that they had to bring in Carter's softer side this early in the show...

Cor-Ai

A rather predictable plot. Teal'c is condemned to death for killing the father of a villager on a planet where he used to be Apophis' head Jaffa. It was obvious from the start that the SG crews wouldn't mount an all-out attack to rescue Teal'c, and that he'd get the chance to prove himself and escape execution before the end. The other Jaffa showed up just a little too conveniently to be believable.

Enigma

Interesting ep, and I loved the mysterious Tollans even more than the Nox. I'm glad to know that we're going to see more of both in the future.

Solitudes

I love these claustrophobic episodes, and the fact that O'Neill and Carter were stranded in Antarctica was just awesome. Although it makes me wonder how old the gate really is, why would anyone want to build a gate so far from any population centers?

So, nearing 20 episodes in your journey “off world”... what is your "SG-1 so far" impression?

Tin Man

The SG-1 team is replaced by duplicates when on a mission. Rather interesting take on the consciousness transfer/copying question.

So far, I'm loving it. Obviously some episodes are better than others, but all in all it's a wonderful show. I'm having a great time watching it and learning about the mythos.

But For the Grace of God

Great alternate universe episode. The ending was heartbreaking.

When you get to - I think - Episode #100 they do great spoofs on themselves... you will BUST UP LAUGHING! :)
I won't say more than that... just get ready to giggle.
