Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
Episode: Divide and Conquer (2000)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.2/10 X  
When an SG member tries to assassinate the Tok'Ra leader, it is believed that some of the SGC have been converted into za'tarc - programmed assassins... (44 mins.)
“ In this episode, all SGC personel are tested to see if they were ever captured and brainwashed by the Goa'uld, by determining if there are any gaps in their memory. Jack and Sam's tests come back positive. The President of the United States is supposed to visit the SGC that same day, to meet with the Tok'ra leader. It is feared that Sam or Jack were programed to kill the president when he arrives. Due to past experience, they know any attempt to prevent them from fulfilling their mission, or attempts to deprogram them results in a self destruct.

Believe it or not, the main reason why I love this episode is not because I am a Jack/Sam shipper. That is my second reason. My first reason is because their situation seemed so hopeless and I really had no idea how they were going to get out of it. I was really surprised and impressed when we discovered that they had misleading test results, due to the fact that they were hiding their feelings for each other. Really the best episode, although a very unpopular choice. ” - Clemontine
Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
Episode: Prometheus Unbound (2004)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
General Hammond returns to SGC to take Dr. Jackson with him on a trip to Atlantis onboard the Prometheus... (44 mins.)
“ In Prometheus Unbound, Daniel is finally on his way to Atlantis. Being the world's foremost expert on the Ancients, and the one who finally found the way to the city, it will be his first visit. But on his way there, the ship he is on, the Prometheus, is hijacked by a beautiful woman who beamed everyone off the ship and onto her derelict cargo ship except for Daniel. She attempts to seduce him so he will help her get access to the ship's computer.

Probably half the reason why I love this episode so much is because I am a strong Daniel/Vala shipper. The other half of the reason is because I am in love with Claudia Black. When this episode first aired, I had no idea that Vala would become a main character, and it was just really exciting to see Claudia Black on the show, being a Farscape fan. This is definitely the episode that I find the funniest of all 215. Both Daniel and Vala's behaviour in this episode is just hilarious. ” - Clemontine
Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
Episode: Lost City: Part 1 (2004)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.1/10 X  
Vice President Kinsey briefs Dr. Weir on the Stargate program before her meeting with the president... (44 mins.)
“ In the Lost City 2-parter, Jack downloads an Ancient repository of knowledge into his head, knowing that it is too much for a human mind and that it will eventually kill him. Jack begins to do and say things that even he doesnt understand. SG-1 follows him all over the galaxy as he follows a trail that will bring them to a weapon that will protect them against a Goa'uld attack.

This is a very popular choice. Arguably the best episode of SG-1 ever. There is incredible mythology, adventure, and action, as well as great character moments, as Jack's comrades believe he will soon die. This also features the most exciting space battle in SG-1. ” - Clemontine
Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
Episode: Evolution: Part 1 (2003)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
Bra'tac and Teal'c encounter a heavily armed enemy with shielding protecting him from Goa'uld weaponry who took out two Goa'uld's personal guards... (44 mins.)
“ In the Evolution 2-parter, SG-1 discovers a new supersoldier. They bring back the body of one and discover it only died because it was genetically engineered with a short life. Otherwise they would not have been able to kill it because its armor is impenetrable. Daniel goes to South America in an attempt to find a legendary artifact which they believe could help them engineer a weapon to fight the supersoldiers. Other members of the SGC go on a mission to capture a soldier alive. After they do, it reveals its home planet to them. They set out on another mission to stop the manufacture of more soldiers. While in South America, Daniel is kidnapped, interrogated, and tortured by rebels who demand to know what his artifact is for.

I really enjoyed this episode because of how much it focused on Daniel, and I was really impressed by how he stood up to the rebels. Also, the way that the artifact turned the rebels into zombies was funny. Its was also really exciting when SG-1 went to the supersoldiers' home planet where Anubis made them. I have seen this episode innumerable times, although it is not a popular choice. ” - Clemontine
Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
Episode: Camelot (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
Based on the information Vala gave them, SG-1 travels to the planet where Merlin may have hidden his secret weapon to defeat ascended beings... (44 mins.)
“ In Camelot, SG-1 goes to Camelot itself to look for Merlin's secret weapon. While they are there, one of Earth's ships discover the Ori's supergate. Sam joins them, while the others stay in Camelot, to help try to disable the supergate before the Ori are able to send ships through. All of Earth's allies gather at the gate, as well as some enemies, to help defend their galaxy.

I really enjoyed seeing Camelot and hearing the story of Arthur and Merlin from a whole new perspective. There is also a sword in a stone, which was pulled out by a girl which was super cool. The main reason this episode is amazing though, is the final battle. It was like nothing ever seen on SG-1 before. It is a losing battle. But it is extremely dramatic and emotional. And all SG-1 fans dreamed of seeing a battle involving all the SG-1 allies. This is an extremely popular choice. ” - Clemontine
Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
Episode: Off the Grid (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X  
While investigating the source of an addictive corn-like crop, SG-1 becomes involved in a firefight. They are forced to fall back to the gate, but as Daniel is dialing both the Stargate and the DHD are beamed away. (44 mins.)
“ In Off the Grid, SG-1 hears about some corn that acts like a drug, and they go undercover as traders to investigate. While they are there the planet's gate and dialing device disappear, and the local drug dealers/traders suspect SG-1. They are eventually rescued, but then have to find out who stole the gate along with gates from several other planets which also disappeared.

This isnt a very popular choice, but its a funny episode because of the ridiculous corn premise, and its also lots of fun because of SG-1's cool leather outfits and their undercover personas, and some crazy action at the end. ” - Clemontine
Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
General Hammond has tried everything to get the senates decision to shut down his space program undone... (44 mins.)
“ Along with 'The Serpent's Lair'

In the season 1 finale/season 2 premiere 2-parter, SG-1 recently found out about an impending Goa'uld attack on Earth, but the SG program is being shut down because the government does not believes it is worth the cost, or that the Goa'uld are as dangerous as they are told. SG-1 hijacks the gate room and escapes to Apophis' mothership, in an attempt to save Earth.

There is a great deal of action in this episode. I also enjoyed seeing Skaara again, even if he wasnt yet freed from Klorel. Everyone was great in this episode. Some great Jack, Daniel, and Bra'tac moments. And it was interesting to see SG-1 rescued by a NASA shuttle at the end, since this was before Earth had its own ships. ” - Clemontine
Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
Episode: 200 (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
Martin Lloyd seeks out SG-1 for assistance when his failed TV show based on the real Stargate program becomes a feature film. (44 mins.)
“ In this episode, the SGC is approached by an alien they previously helped integrate into Earth society, who is now a movie producer. He wants to make a movie based on SG-1, and the SGC commander agrees because it would be a great cover in the case that anyone tried to expose them. They discuss several possibilities for the movie, most of which sound strangely familiar.

I love this episode because it is a lot of fun. I didnt enjoy it the first time I watched it because it was too weird and there was no action. But the more I watch it the more I like it. My favourite segments are the one with the marionette puppets and the Star Trek spoof. ” - Clemontine
Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
Episode: The Pegasus Project (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.0/10 X  
While Daniel and Vala search for Merlin's anti-Ori weapon in Atlantis' library, Mitchell, McKay and Carter try to to dial the Ori Supergate in the Milky Way. (44 mins.)
“ In this episode, SG-1 visits the city of Atlantis, which is in the Pegasus galaxy and is the setting of the spin-off show. They get to interact with the stars of that show. They go there to attempt a project involving the stargates and dialing to other galaxies. While they are there, Daniel does a little research about Merlin's secret weapon in the Ancient's database in the city.

This is an excellent episode because of all the characters coming together. We have seen a lot of Sam and McKay in the past, and they are great as usual. But this is the first we see of Mitchell and Sheppard together, and it was lots of fun. Also, there is a lot of suspense and action in this episode while Sam and McKay conduct their experiments near a blackhole. The ending was excellent, as they cause a chain reaction which leads to the destruction of an Ori and a Wraith ship, the main enemies from both shows. ” - Clemontine
Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
Episode: 2001 (2001)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.5/10 X  
SG-1 makes contact with the Aschen, unaware of that their homeworld is one they were warned previously from the future to be considered off-limits. (44 mins.)
“ This is sort of like a sequel to the episode 2010, which took place in the future where Earth had an alliance with a very powerful race called Aschen. At the end of that episode they sent themselves a note in the past, telling themselves never to go to the planet where they met the Aschen. But in the episode 2001 they meet the Aschen through mutual friends on a different planet, not realizing they are the race they warned themselves to stay away from. But, luckily, Sam was able to triangulate their planet's position in the sky using their gate address, and Daniel discovered a buried city and translated some of their old newspapers; all very suspicious.

I really like this episode because it continues the story from 2010. I like this one a little more because it featured more of Daniel, my favourite characters, and more history, Daniel's specialty. ” - Clemontine
Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
Episode: Paradise Lost (2003)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
Former Colonel Harry Maybourne comes to Jack with a proposition: Jack gets him a presidential pardon... (44 mins.)
“ In Paradise Lost, Maybourne tricks Jack into taking him off world with promises of discovering alien technology. Instead, Maybourne tries to escape and run away to a legendary alien paradise. Jack and Maybourne get trapped there together, and discover that the alien colony had died out a long time ago. As Maybourne becomes increasingly hostile and paranoid, Jack begins to understand what happened to the locals.

This had a lot of great interactions between Jack and Maybourne. ” - Clemontine
Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
Episode: Fallen (2003)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
A group of nomads on an alien planet find Daniel Jackson naked in the middle of ruins and take him in... (44 mins.)
“ Along with 'Homecoming'

In Fallen, the team finds Daniel, who had died a year earlier, living in a village without his memory. They convince him to come back to Earth with them, and, for a time, he works side by side with his replacement, Jonas.

In Homecoming, the team, including Daniel and Jonas, must protect Jonas' home planet against an invasion by Anubis.

These episodes had some really memorable dialogue, as well as a lot of action, and a really interesting story involving Anubis and the search for Atlantis. ” - Clemontine
Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
Episode: Window of Opportunity (2000)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.5/10 X  
Col. O'Neill and Teal'c realize they and their friends are trapped in a time loop. (44 mins.)
“ Window of Opportunity is the most common favourite among fans. In this episode, SG-1 visits a planet to study its unique magnetics and meet another archaeologist who is there studying some ancient ruins. After an unusual turn of events, Jack and Teal'c find themselves back on base, reliving events from that morning. 6 hrs later they jump backwards again, and again, and again. Being the only two who are not scientists on their team, finding a way to fix it proves difficult. At one point, Daniel points out the fact that, if they have been living the same 6 hrs repeatedly, they could do whatever they want without consequences.

This episode is definitely one of the funniest ever, out of 215. Most would say the funniest, but I would say second funniest. So many great scenes in this one, including one of the best shipper moments. ” - Clemontine
Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
Episode: Reckoning: Part 1 (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
After a long absence Jacob Carter returns to the SGC to tell Jack that the galaxy is under threat of takeover by the Replicators... (44 mins.)
“ In this 2-parter, SG-1 hatches an elaborate plan to defeat two enemies in one swoop. The Goa'uld and the Replicators.

We have everyone in this one. Baal, everyone's favourite handsome baddie, Jacob, Bra'tac, Thor, Oma. And everything. Wonderful action, ancient weapon systems, replicators, and the usual witty dialogue. ” - Clemontine
Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
Episode: Unending (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.0/10 X  
General Landry accompanies SG-1 on a mission to collect the knowledge of the Asgard. When the Ori show up however... (44 mins.)
“ The series finale. Unending begins with SG-1 answering an invitation from the Asgard, their most powerful allies. The Asgard give them all of their technology and help integrate it into their ship, the Odyssey. But they are attacked by the Ori. Using new technology they just received they freeze time in order to figure out a way to escape. They are trapped on the ship for 60 years before Sam figures out a way to reverse time, leaving only Teal'c still aged, in order to warn them.

I loved this episode because it focuses so much on the relationship between the characters, which I think is very important for a finale. There was also one very popular scene for Daniel/Vala shippers. Of course, after the time reversal, it never happened. :( ” - Clemontine
Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
Episode: It's Good to Be King (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
SG-1 is sent to warn Harry Maybourne that the goa'uld System Lord Ares is coming to the planet where he was banished, and in the process they find what may be an Ancient time machine. (44 mins.)
“ In It's Good to be King SG-1 visits an old friend and foe, Colonel Maybourne. They go to try to bring him home because there is a new, dangerous system lord in the area. But the locals have named Maybourne king and he doesnt want to leave them.

Jack and Maybourne work wonderfully together and they are always fun. This episode is really funny and I love the way that the people look up to Maybourne. You never would have expected this was possible when you first met Maybourne, but he actually makes a pretty good king. Then again, he probably wouldnt have been a good king when we first met him. He has changed a lot. Also some interesting stuff in here about the ancients. ” - Clemontine
Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
Episode: 2010 (2001)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
In 2010, Robert Kinsey is president of a brave new world since he concluded the alliance with the Aschen... (44 mins.)
“ At the time it originally aired, this took place almost 10 years in the future, showing the Earth after it had made an alliance with a very advanced race called Aschen. Eventually, the team, while together for a reunion, realizes that the Aschen are not all that they appear to be. But when almost every aspect of Earth security is run by the Aschen themselves, what do you do?

I love this episode because it is one of the classic episodes, of SG-1 overcoming incredible odds. I love the "How are they going to get out of this one?" episodes. But in '2010', they actually couldnt get themselves out of it. Their only option was to get help from themselves, 10 years in the past. ” - Clemontine
Stargate: Continuum (2008 Video)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
Ba'al travels back in time and prevents the Stargate program from being started. SG-1 must somehow restore history. (98 mins.)
Director: Martin Wood
“ Continuum starts with SG-1 attending the execution of Baal, the last of the Goa'uld system lords. But Vala and Teal'c vanish, then the planet begins to fall apart. The rest of the team makes it back to the gate but come through on a stranded old ship in the Arctic. Baal had set a plan in motion to alter the timeline, so that the SGC never existed and Baal is attacking Earth with his First Prime, Teal'c, and his queen, Qetesh (Vala), at his side.

I really enjoyed this movie because there is a lot of great action, one of the best time travel episodes I have ever seen on TV (even if this wasnt made for TV), and also managed to bring back the classic SG-1 feel. This was also one of Claudia Black's best performances ever. The only time I have seen her play evil and she did it so amazingly well. ” - Clemontine
Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
Episode: Deadman Switch (1999)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.9/10 X  
While on a mission to recover a UAV, SG1 are captured by a Bounty Hunter working for evil System Lord Sokar... (44 mins.)
“ In Deadman Switch SG-1 meets a bounty hunter who wants to turn them all over to the Goa'uld. But he decides to get them to help him also take down a rival Goa'uld he was hunting, and he might let them go in exchange.

I really like this episode because the bounty hunter, Aris Boch, is a really interesting character that I would have loved to see again. There was also some great scenes in this episode and some pretty funny stuff, as well as the usual amount of action. ” - Clemontine
Stargate SG-1 (1997 TV Series)
Episode: Pretense (2000)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.3/10 X  
The SG-1 team is requested by the Tollan to participate in a trial concerning Skaara and whether he has control of his body or the Goa'uld parasite, Klorel. (44 mins.)
“ Pretense is about Skaara, Daniel's brother-in-law, an Abydos native, who goes to trial in a Tollan court to reclaim his body against Klorel, the son of Apophis, who was currently inhabiting it.

I enjoy this episode because I like seeing different forms of alien law. Tollan law is actually good, and makes sense more than some alien law, mainly Cardasian, from Star Trek: DS9 which was completely ridiculous and infuriating. I also enjoy seeing Lya again, an old friend from S1. She is a wonderful character and extremely lovely. I also enjoyed the introduction of Zipacna, a Goa'uld who is played by Kevin Durand. ” - Clemontine
