The parade of excellence rolls on
4 October 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

This episode explores one of the more interesting scientific notions of the show, the idea that this stranded ship can stay in communication with Earth through communication stones left by the ancients, which allow two people to switch bodies, no matter the distance. Body-snatching is hardly a new concept, but here for the first time we're allowed to experience it as a familiar and friendly technology. Earth orders Young to try a risky procedure that might get them home. When he balks, Col. Telford (Philips) exchanges bodies with him, and takes over. Rush sabotages the attempt, certain it will kill them all. The most fascinating part has Eli, Chloe, and Young interacting with their loved ones on Earth, in different bodies. They all handle it in different ways. Eli pretends to be a new friend of his, knowing his mom would never understand. Young has sex with his wife. Throw in a little Richard Dean Anderson, and away you go.
