Storyline

It's SG-1's turn to start testing a quartet of Air force cadet prodigies for SGC recruitment. After an imperfect performance by their kids, Sam pleads their potential but Jack is most critical, especially because cadet Lieutenant Grogan was left behind (pretending to be wounded). A new problem arises (aliens try and take over SGC) and the cadets are unsure whether this is staged or not. This time their CO, Lieutenant Elliot, proves himself to be a born leader and gives everything he has to get the job done. They almost seem to have pulled it off until Haley pulls a "Sam-stunt" which changes the scenario for the worse again. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Wojciech Jakubowski (polish underground actor) was actually on his vacation in US, and was invited by his friend to see the set of Stargate SG-1. When Peter DeLuise saw Jakubowski, he was struck by his 'soldierish' look and asked if he wouldn't play a soldier in The Tomb episode. Jakubowski agreed and both men liked the cooperation so much, that he played in two more episodes - Wormhole X-Treme! and Proving Ground. See more »

Predictable but Entertaining
26 December 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Colonel O'Neill and Samantha are training four rookie Air Force cadets for the SGC. Out of the blue, aliens take over the SGC and Jack does not have anyone that he can trust but the cadets. He teams-up with the cadets and they enter in the SGC using a hidden exit to rescue Sam. What will happen to the SGC? Will they be capable to avoid the invasion?

"Proving Ground" is a predictable but entertaining episode of SG-1. It is quite obvious that everything is part of a drill to prepare the "next generation" of the explorers. The conclusion is a joke with the alarm activated again. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Proving Ground"
