"Fallen" picks up where Season 6 leaves off. Time has passed but we don't know how much as SG-1 pursue the clues left by the tablet Daniel found on Abydos at the end of Season 6 and, of course, run straight into two problems - Anubis being one, the consequences of Daniel's actions in "Full Circle" being the other. "Homecoming" as the second part to "Fallen" concludes the actions and events begun in "Fallen" with very personal consequences for Jonas Quinn, who replaced Daniel Jackson for Season 6.
Everything from Daniel coping with his insecurities, to the SGC trying to cope with his return and Jonas' having to handle the threat facing his planet - acting and scripting was on the ball and excellent. These two episodes don't feel like later seasons of Stargate, the team interaction is strong and the overall feel harkens right back to the original film, with a few direct references too if you know what to look for.
"Fragile Balance"... where did they get the boy who plays Jack O'Neill from? His ability to adapt to the mannerisms of Richard Dean Anderson is what makes this episode work and his rapport with established members of the cast is excellent. This is a worthwhile episode with good characterisation and plot. It's a slower pace than the packed events of the previous two episodes but the tension and team interaction keeps the plot moving and the audience engaged.
"Orpheus" has to be the best episode on the tape. A powerful Teal'c and Daniel centered episode.Read more ›
The extras as also good, giving us more insite to whats behind the show.
I recommend it for any sci-fi and sg1 fan
