Alien meets Goa'uld.
25 June 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Funny thing: I was about to say that this episode was a lot like Alien IV, but fortunately I took a second look at the title right before I credited myself for the analogy. So yes, the episode is based on the same premises as Resurrection, with about the same creep factor. Picture a mix of mad scientists, horrendous genetic manipulation, immoral NID mavericks, a Jekyll/Hyde situation, mental and physical torture, and did I leave anything out? Oh, yes: there's a beautiful innocent, abused, doomed blonde too. If you think the plot is laying it on a bit thick, please join the club.

The episode tries to recycle too many things too fast, making the plot a bit too convoluted and not always very plausible. (For example, why doesn't anybody ever lay a finger on that scientist madman, even though he caves in at the mere *mention* of physical violence?) And while I'm complaining, let me also mention that O'Neill's absence from *any* episode is a terrible letdown. (I know, I'll have to get used to it. Don't rush me).

On the "up" side, however, there are some really funny lines (I love Carter's smug smile when she casually drops that she has a date now). But the best part of the episode, the part that actually makes the whole thing fascinating in a creepy way, is the mad scientist. He is so oily, so monstrous and yet so adamant that everything he did was "for the sake of humanity", that Nazi camps would have come to mind without any explicit mention.

Then again, it took me two weeks to get the title, so maybe I'm being really petty.
