4.0 out of 5 stars The second half is best, 2 Mar. 2003
This review is from: Stargate SG-1 - Season 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Stargate has always been special, as it follows it's own unique path (not just a Star Trek clone), and brilliantly links ancient Egyptian culture to a modern day sci-fi storyline.
With the first season establishing the characters, setting and enemies, it was season two's job to develop those stories and move the series onwards. For the most part, it suceeded.
The season opens with 'The Serpent's Lair', the cliff hanger from season one, where the SG-1 team must stop the Goa'uld from reaching Earth. The next nine episodes, although not terrible, mainly concentrate on character building and finishing off stories started in season one. The two-parter, 'The Tok'ra', is the episode that makes season two really exciting, with new allies and the interesting situation where Carter's father becomes a Tok'ra.
The next episodes are also excellent, for example there is 'The Fifth Race', where O'Neil meets the Asgard, a powerful race who look like the well known 'Greys', the aliens people think they see after an abduction experience. Another good episode is 'A Matter of Time', where the stargate opens up to a world about to be destroyed by a blackhole. Many theories about blackholes are excellently brought into play with this story, such as the slowdown of time. '1969' involves the good old time travelling storyline, but it is actually very good and funny. The season concludes with 'Out of Mind', where the Goa'uld try to trick the SG-1 members into thinking it is 80 years into the future and they have been in stasis.
Overall a good season, paving the way for even greater stories in the next season.
