Trivia

When a guard asks Jack to kneel, he replies that he can't as he has trouble with his knees. This stems from the fact that Richard Dean Anderson actually does have knee trouble in real life. See more »

An interesting perspective of addiction
28 September 2014 | by (Europe) – See all my reviews

This is somewhat disjointed and slow moving but it does pick up in the last half. I am somewhat puzzled that someone says that Jackson "falls in love..." That is something that certainly does NOT happen at any point in this episode! This episode is mostly centered around the idea of addiction - hence the title.

I found that part of the story seems to be built up in the first half but it just fizzles out. After about the first half of the episode it gets more interesting but the original story never really takes form. It does, however, show the nature of the bond between the members of the team.

The acting was intriguing (especially Michael Shanks) and the storyline becomes an important part of the SG1 series. It is not quite up to the standard of other episodes. It is a good episode for revealing more about the nature of the goa'uld.
