Good Yarn
22 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a fun episode. Dwight Shultz provides his typically brilliant, typically comedic theatrical style to the Keeper character.

Star Trek TNG and Star Trek Voyager fans will immediately recognize and appreciate his unique style.

This episode also provides another angle to time, in which the SG-1 team experiences traumatic episodes from their history over and over again. It's kind of like a first-person reality video game, in which the player fails in a mission and gets to reload and try again.

This is good storytelling. It's well acted and well written. I think it's one of the better episodes in Season 2, even if it does take a while for the story to "get there."
