Episode cast overview:
Jocelyne Loewen ...
Dr. Chloe Angstrom


Dr. Felger is called on the carpet after his latest invention causes a blackout throughout the SGC. General Hammond is seriously considering ending his employment but Felger tells him he's working on something so good that they'll definitely want to keep him. Of course he has nothing ready but turns his focus to the Avenger software which would scramble gate addresses and make the dialing devices useless to anyone who doesn't know the code. Hammond decides to give him one more chance but on one condition: that Sam work on it with him, something Felger could only have dreamed of. When Sam thinks the program is ready, she suggests they try it on P5S-117, one of Baal's naquidah mining sites. Soon after implanting the virus however, SGC begins to receive reports that the gate system is failing. With several SGC teams stranded off world, Sam and Felger have very little time to get the gate system back online. Written by garykmcd

bad timing and not as funny as supposed to be
11 March 2015 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

It's nice to have a comedic episode from time to time and "The Other Guys", the prequel to this one was really great. But a comedic episode should be placed between some serious ones and not after another (truly enjoyable) episode with more fun than plot development. The other problem with this episode is bad writing and the overplayed incompetence of Dr. Felger. Some scenes are really funny but don't mix well with too many serious threats. It would have been far better with for example O'Neill stranded on a planet full of scientists and diplomats ("Carter! Get me out of here or I'll shoot 'em all!"). Another annoyance is the deus ex machina to solve the problem. Out of thin air and without any explanation ("We were tired of waiting") O'Neill saves Carter and Felger with a spaceship. Unnecessary bad writing. Felger could have just finished the anti virus when most of the Jaffa could have come from behind and standing in front of the Stargate. "Surrender" - "One moment please." - Wooosh!

And it somehow lessens "The Other Guys" since I alway thought this was just a daydream of Dr. Felger.

4 out of 10 since it is not all bad and would have been better between some serious episodes.
