The gate is back
29 July 2006 | by masschaosSee all my reviews

I've been extremely skeptical about Ben Browder in the lead of this iconic show of science fiction -- even my long time favorites as Michael Shanks (Daniel Jackson), Amanda Tapping (Colonel Carter), and Teal'c (Christopher Judge), and most of his appearances have been forced, trying to fill Richard Dean Anderson's (General Jack O'Neill, two L's) formidable shoes, which is entirely forgivable. But this episode is in a league of its own and Browder (Colonel Mitchell) manages to integrate himself (at least in my eyes) into the universe of the Stargate.

The Pegasus Project has rejuvenated the series for me and hints at much more to come. I was especially pleased with everybody's performance and the reclamation of Stargate in my eyes as the top of its class in writing, imagination, and concept. My hat's off to everyone responsible for this, thank you!
