Episode cast overview:


Former Colonel Harry Maybourne comes to Jack with a proposition: Jack gets him a presidential pardon and Harry shows them the advanced weapons cache that Simmons was trying to get to. They go through with the deal, but Harry attempts to double cross SG-1. He manages to get through the portal leading to the cache, but with one unexpected item, Jack. They find themselves in a field and Harry's zat is missing. Jack, however, still has his P-90. Harry reveals that they are not at a weapons cache, but rather a utopia. He meant to live out the rest of his life there and believes that there is no way back. Written by trekkie4christ

In the original script, Jack and Harry were going to find a Furling skeleton at the campsite. No one on the production team could decide what the Furling should look like, though. Ultimately, the idea was dropped. See more »

The worst camping trip EVER
11 June 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Starsky & Hutch, episode... well, who's counting? I really love the relationship between O'Neill and Maybourne. Now that Daniel isn't here anymore, the Colonel really needs someone else to drive him nuts over a can of chill beer. It is a bit of a pity that in the rest of the episode, Maybourne is once again treated as a complete fool.

When Maybourne's clever scheme backfires, both men get stranded in an unknown location, and things get more serious. I must say that the plot is really minimal (and frankly, unoriginal). The episode really focuses on people's reactions: Carter is hysterical, O'Neill just takes it in stride (I guess he's also finding this rather familiar) and Maybourne, who may be the worst camper ever, discovers that one man's paradise is another man's hell. Especially when there's a Goa'uld in the equation.

To conclude, this is an average episode with nothing remarkable nor abysmal about it. It delivers, but SG-1 can do better.
