John Sheppard goes John McClane, and the Die Hard parallel becomes clear in the previous episode. This storyline pits a lone hero against what seems to be a vastly superior force, led by a particularly cold-blooded commander who shows no remorse in doing whatever it takes to achieve his objectives.

This two-part arc is one of the best story lines in the entire Stargate franchise. It's action packed, suspenseful, well acted, well written and well directed. The story clearly couldn't be told in a single episode any better than Die Hard could be done without a full length feature.

The special effects in this episode are also fantastic. When that storm hits, you almost feel like you're in a Hurricane.

Worth watching, and then watching again after you've finished the series and you want to go back to the best of the best.
