Among season 2's 22 episodes, "The Serpent's Lair" concludes the cliffhanger from the end of season 1 in a rollercoaster of wit, plot twists, and cutting-edge special effects as the SG-1 team resign themselves to a suicide mission. In the two-parter "The Tok'ra," Sam's estranged father is dying of cancer, but her obligations sway her toward saving a member of the Goa'uld renegade Tok'ra who is also dying. In "Show and Tell," the central story arc takes a dramatic turn when a child arrives to warn that some survivors of a Goa'uld attack are determined to eliminate anyone who might host their enemy--which means Earth as a whole. There's great fun to be had in "1969," with a time-travel plot that loops many aspects of the show's story lines together, and the cliffhanger finale, "Out of Mind," has Jack experience an Aliens-style awakening 79 years into his future. --Paul Tonks
Episodes like "The Fifth Race" and "A Matter of Time" are incredibly original and enjoyable to watch. "1969" is a time travel story with a twist and one of the most memorable of the season.
For a show in its second season it did extremely well compared to some star trek shows' whose second season's were an incredible bore at times.
The only gripe I have is about the packaging i wouldn't have minded paying a little more for some fancier packaging and special features.
Otherwise...Awesome Show!...Great Price!...A Classic in the Making!
