Almost there.
1 February 2011 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Almost there, in two senses.

First; the concept for, and execution of, this episode is brilliant. Nerus, the hungry Goa'uld, approaches our heroes with information about an Ori attempt at establishing a beachhead in our galaxy. While this turns out to be a setup with SG-1 and the Free Jaffa powering the Ori force shield and thus actually helping the Ori, thanks to Vala(!) they ultimately fail. Almost there. And you have to love Landry for the way he treats Nerus towards the end of the episode. Nerus' face when he realises his fate is hilarious, and so very rewarding!

Second; this episode could easily be one of my SG-1 favourites. It's THAT close to getting a 10/10 rating. Where does it fail? Gerak and the Free Jaffa. The Jaffa have always been a minor nuisance to me. They're always pigheaded beyond belief, often blind to the simplest logic and thoroughly suspicious, hostile and ungrateful. It gets progressively worse throughout the seasons, and with the election of Gerak as their leader they just say "screw it" and jump the great big Jaffa shark. You would think a race of "proud warriors" obsessed with "honour" and "respect" would be a little more willing to display these traits towards the people who are so directly responsible for their freedom, but no. I have no more patience with them. "Beachhead" would be perfect without the Free Jaffa. So; almost there.
