One of the best
20 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This SG1 is one of the series' best although many fans disagree due to O'Neil's straying from love for Carter to another woman. From the opening to the end, this SG1 delivers on character, on story, on directorial excellence, on shear beauty and not mention very nice special effects and superior use of location.

And did I mention the music. Memorable and extremely well done to set the mood.

An O'Neill tour-de-force by Richard Dean Anderson with strong work by Tapping, Judge and Davis. The off-world love interest by Michelle Greene is probably her best career effort - believable, sensitive and beautifully played. Supporting guest cast are excellent.
