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

The Other Guys, part II
22 June 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

If you take the episode and just forget about the first 10 and last 5 minutes of it, it is fairly decent. But the farcical bits about Felger's fantasies and overall incompetence do begin to feel like a huge timeout for our usual characters, especially as once again only Carter really spends any time on screen.

Now I am not an IT expert, so as far as I am concerned, the main plot -involving Felger unwittingly messing up a universe's worth of DHDs-, sounds plausible and provides some moments of tension as various teams get stranded off-world in difficult situations. I sympathise a bit with poor Felger, whose efforts seem doomed to make things worse, but the fact remains that he's only ever shown as a buffoon, so it's hard to really consider him as a full-blown character even though this is his 2nd (and last) appearance. I still smiled at some of his antics, and even more when the episode took the opportunity to give a huge nod to Stargate diehards; but this could not compensate the major flaws in the storyline, the worst of which is: WHEN DO WE GET SG-1 BACK ON TRACK???
