On General Jack O'Neil's personal recommendation, his -unwilling- former SG-1 mates are ordered to advise Hollywood production executive Martin 'Marty' Lloyd on a 'slightly ridiculous' version of the Stargate operations. The brainstorming proves rather unsatisfactory for both sides, despite repeated recourse to personal -often self-flattering- imagination and various real experiences, so the team members are relieved when General Landry calls them, as promised, for a mission, but just then the Gate breaks down temporarily. Marty also gets discomforting phone calls, and even more preposterous alternatives are considered, 'til an apparent "deus ex machina" appears... Written by KGF Vissers

Record-breaking, self-depreciating...
20 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An excellent episode of this series. The prominent role played by Richard Dean Anderson was a wonderful treat, as was the "previously on..." vignette at the very beginning.

The episode consists of numerous in-jokes, references to different areas of SG-1 fandom and fan fiction (Sam/Jack and Jack/Daniel shippers are in for a treat), and references to other science fiction programs--some blatant and some more subtle.

A true collaborative effort, each "vignette" is written by a different member of the writing staff, each doing their part to constantly (and openly) poke fun at themselves, the actors (and their previous work, in some cases), the 1994 movie, and even the repeated scheduling--and canceling--of an SG-1 movie.

All in all, a beautiful piece of work. I would highly recommend it for any fan of science fiction, even if they've never been especially zealous fans of Stargate: SG-1.
