Ex Deus Boringa
2 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

God like beings are invading the galaxy. But now the search for Ba'al clones.

Louis Gossett Jaffa started to come into his own as a serious enemy in this episode. But alas, SG-1's creative team decided to go with Ori instead of LGJ as the main enemy.

There's an odd fire fight in a cubicle forest office. Remember when staff weapons took chunks out of blast doors? During this fire fight they couldn't penetrate flimsy cubicles with more than a few sparks.

Teal'c assured everyone Ha'tak vessels can't cloak, despite Ha'tak vessels cloaking a few times in previous episodes.

This episode is full of sloppy writing, broken continuity, and it's based on a flimsy premise. Not to mention it's an annoying diversion from the main story line, like that story line or not.
