General Landry plans to teach SG-1 how to relax in General O'Neil's log cabin while Jack is in Washington, but Daniel Jackson can't wait to consult an aristocrat's private library in London on Merlin. Meanwhile, Sam and Vala join Teal'c on P9J-333 where a mysterious monster devours all humanoids, as on several other planets which were recently visited by SG teams. Landry is left alone with Cameron Mitchell, who finds this rather uncomfortable. Dissection of a monster victim reveals it implants a centipede-like parasite, which transforms otherwise harmless indigenous species. Carter figures out it was spread by the Sodan cloaking device, but one is missing, and the suspect is probably after Landry and Mitchell, who find similar victims near the cabin...

Major General Hank Landry: It's the only road in and out of here. Looks like we're roughing it until they get it cleared.
Lt. Colonel Cameron Mitchell: Yes, sir, but you're a powerful Air Force General. You could order us up a chopper.
Major General Hank Landry: We don't use helicopters for our own personal transportation, Mitchell.
Lt. Colonel Cameron Mitchell: Right, sir.
Major General Hank Landry: Besides, I already checked. There wasn't one available.

On this week's menu: deadly extra-dimensional radioactive monster
15 August 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

There is nothing basically wrong with this episode, really, it's just... it's a season 1 or 2 plot line (without Daniel nor O'Neill). The universe is about to be overrun by godlike beings while the magic 8 Baals (sorry, couldn't resist) play havoc with the Stargates. Is it really the right moment to plan a vacation at O'Neill's cottage? Besides, the plot line takes forever to really develop, so that for a good 15mn we're left wondering what this is all about. I like the irony that after all its past experiences, Earth *once again* created a real mess by fiddling with alien technology. I won't mention that the "alien from another dimension" has already been done, or that the SFX for that animal at the end really, really suck. (By the way, I wonder what it was before mutation; judging from its movements, I'd say it was a bunny. Just a thought.) Anyway, solving those problems used to be a bit more complex than emptying a whole cartridge of bullets into them.

So as I said, this a decent episode, just a very average one, which won't leave a gap if you miss it. The best part of it (besides all the jokes about Mitchell hating his quality time with Landry and the echoes it brings of O'Neill's trips there) is seeing Carter bluffing Teal'c. Go girl!
