The captain of the Serrakin prisoner transport ship Cerberus seeks Major Carter's help in winning a race and offers in exchange full access to their ion engine technology. He further explains that it is not through official channels and that they will only learn what they pick up by helping him tune up his ship. Sam agrees to help and insists upon running the race with him. However, the competition for this race is steep and there is no telling whether the team will be able to surpass their rivals.

Fast and furious
16 June 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Now come on, we're in the middle of a season, we can afford to spend some time on a comedic, light-hearted episode! There has to be an upside to traveling around the galaxy, after all, and I for one won't begrudge the characters a chance to have fun. How can you not laugh, watching Carter and Teal'c come up with ANY excuse to participate in that race? And there IS something to be gained from that rather silly race, even though the Ion-whatever is clearly only a pretense.

Besides a fun race and some really good lines, this also reintroduces a really nice character from Forsaken, and allows Earth to really bond with an alien world -- and it's not as if there were too many of those left. Despite the oddities, this world feels the most familiar so far, so I hope it will not get blasted to oblivion too. Last but not least, it has been a very long time since the last Carter episode, so it was high time she got her share of the spotlight. She's usually so serious, I really enjoyed watching her have fun for once.
