A dream reveal to Vala Morgan Lefay's clues to three planets must be combined to one Stargate address containing symbols for each, and only one qualifies- when they arrive, the local medieval society tells them a week earlier Ba'al was there, and warns nobody ever returned from the quest. The arrival of an Ori force to impose conversion convinces the local library's guardian Orsic, who shows a parchment with cryptic instructions for the Arthurian quest based on five virtues, to help them look for the Sangrail. The first obstacle is a maze through a time distortion field, which leads them to Ba'al, already trapped for three days by a chest which contains nothing, but releases them if everyone puts something in it. Daniel then realizes Orsic is not a local but a disguised Ori, and indeed it's Adria, who decided to enlist them since the prophecy requires searchers of pure hearts, so they solve the next riddles together, practicing each of the virtues...

Camelot & Merlin; Right!
13 August 2020 | by Easygoer10See all my reviews

The only thing missing are the Marx Brothers. This is bad as it gets. The final 2 seasons (which never should have been made), there is a constant theme: The faster Michael Shanks ("Dr. Jackson") speaks, the goofier the story. Baal & Vala are simply comedic foils. Too bad. Really terrible. Watch SGA instead.
