Absolute Power Corrupts
25 July 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The SG-1 is summoned by Kasuf to investigate a mysterious phenomenon in Abydos and they find the boy Shifu. He tells that he is Harcesis and he might be Sha're's son. Daniel has a close contact with the boy and they decide to take Shifu to be examined at the SGC. Daniel explains to Shifu that they want to check whether he has knowledge of the Goa'uld science and Shifu makes telepathic contact with him. Soon Daniel learns the Goa'uld technological knowledge and he changes his personality, affecting the SG-1.

"Absolute Power" is one of the weakest episodes of "Stargate SG-1". It is a story about how absolute power corrupts but Shifu is boring and Daniel becomes irritating with his behavior. Therefore if the correct Daniel has changed so much his personality with the Goa'uld knowledge, Earthlings are certainly not prepared to acquire this science. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Absolute Power"
