Storyline

On a mission to trade in a promising corn type, SG-1 is taken captive by Worrel, a Lucian Alliance underling, who also holds them erroneously responsible when their stargate disappears (as on several planets). General Landry works on Nerus's appetite for food and freedom to find out that the thief is Ba'al, who plans not only the ransom but to start a new Goa'uld empire. After the Odyssea rescues SG-1, SGC and the Alliance try to take on Ba'al and each-other. Written by KGF Vissers

Grand Theft Stargate
12 August 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Here's an episode that reminded me of the good old days! It starts with a hilarious intro where the sheer absurdity of the situation reminds you of the first seasons. I really think the flashback explaining that situation could have been abbreviated *a lot* since that spice-corn won't ever pop up again (I am trying very hard not to make a "popcorn" joke, but let's face it, it's too bad to miss) Never mind: here again, the flashback provides some really good lines.

You've really got to give it to Baal: he never does the expected. After the weird clone-businessman thing, he's now into Gate theft, which has to be the most silly (but oddly efficient) strategy to annoy both the SGC and the Ori. For a moment I even thought he was borrowing a page from the Ori's book and building a mega-Gate like the one Vala managed to blow up. As a matter of fact, I am not really sure that stealing a few gates would really prove that much of a bother to Earth and the Ori, considering the sheer size of the Gate network, but you've got to admire Baal's resilience. I am almost sorry that apparently this was his last convoluted scheme.

I'm also a bit miffed that Earth got a new spaceship so fast(great name by the way). It's almost disrespectful to brave old Prometheus to have it replaced so fast by a much sleeker ship. Never mind. The important point is that once again space fights mean lots of honest action (how touching: Teal'c and Mitchell finally bond over a nice Doom-like rampage) and a serious abuse of tech-thingies, some of which remain rather unclear. (Why did Carter need to reset the Stargate to escape the ship, for instance? It was not the first time SG1 dialed in from a Gate that was not where it was supposed to be.)

All in all, this episode is too much fun to dwell on a few inconsistencies (although I'm willing to admit that I didn't spend too much time looking for explanations). It's exactly what we needed after the depressing Ethon: some crazy action, a Goa'uld to kill and at least a dozen good lines. We're back on track!
