Never accept trinkets from a stranger
8 September 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

A lot of good moments in this episode. We meet Anise, who rather sums up O'Neill's whole problem with the Tok'ra: you never quite know what they're up to. (It doesn't help that Anise, the only Tok'ra who wears spandex instead of rags, *looks* like trouble waiting to happen).

Anyway, at Anise's instigation, the human members of SG1 start an interesting little experiment that offers lots of funny and unusual moments, much to SGC's dismay. Honestly, it's too much fun to have us really worried about the consequences of wearing those armbands (Btw: "With great power comes great responsibility"... WHO stole Peter Parker's stuff?!!) Who, after all, could begrudge O'Neill a chance to get back at Teal'c for all those years of losing to him, or Carter for wanting to shine a little, or Daniel -the former timid geek- for standing up to small-town bullies? The last part of the story, with the (possibly set-up) raid against a mothership, is a bit less fun, but the fact that it will be mentioned again later makes it significant. Things return to normal rather quickly after that, which is a bit of a pity, but the ending still provides some interesting dialogues (and I like it that despite being rather abruptly left out, Teal'c still manages to hold his own).
