the way The Keeper is played is ridiculous
24 May 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

I have some mixed feelings about this episode. The story itself is rather great because the story moves in circles. Once the story is ended it starts all over again and that's great because somehow they SG-1 can influence the past.

When SG-1 is visiting a world full of beautiful flowers they enter a dome. Seeing that people are captured by a machine full of tubes they want to investigate what's going on but before they now it they are captured too and are entering their own critical moments from the past. Slowly The Keeper(Dwight Schultz) reveals himself. No problem with all that but it's the way The Keeper is played that annoyed me. The Keeper looks like some gay guy and towards the end when his world is destroyed he even cries and for me that destroys the credibility of this episode.
