Storyline

The next planet visited by SG-1 holds an unusual surprise: the only person by its star-gate is an old, sick man, known to Teal'c as Machello, since decades a famous adversary of the goa'uld, who even developed his own technology to fight them, was captured and tortured but escaped. He joins them to earth, but Daniel, who touched his recording device, wakes up in the dying body of Machello, which is only discovered after the alien walked of, given a clean bill of health by Dr. Fraiser, in Daniel's body, determined to enjoy life as an earthling, teaming up with homeless Fred, which soon turns bad... While Machello is searched, the others travel back to retrieve the device, but in the process Jack and Teal'c get body-switched too, and Sam fails to figure out on her own how to reverse it...

Jack O'Neill: [Testing to see if Machello really is Daniel] All right. Describe for me the dress your sister wore last week when I took her out.
Daniel Jackson/Machello: I don't have a sister, Jack. And if I did I wouldn't let you near her.

A Beautiful Day
5 October 2015 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The SG-1 arrives in a planet with an old man alone that is recognized by Teal'c as Machello, who has resisted the goa'uld with the technology he has developed. Daniel touches in an alien device and them the group returns to Earth bringing Machello that is dying. When he awakes, Daniel claims that is trapped in the old body. Meanwhile Machello is having a beautiful day in Daniel's body. While the police seek out Daniel, Jack and Teal'c returns to the planet to bring the device; however they accidentally switches body too. Now Sam is trying to find a way to return each one to his own body. Is it possible?

"Holiday" is an entertaining and funny episode of SG-1, especially when Marcello is having a nice day in Daniel's body. Michael Shanks is unrecognizable playing the role of Machello. The conclusion is also very enjoyable. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Holiday"
