    Sorry, folks. This one did nothing for me. I don't, on the whole, like clip shows, and this one lost my attention quite quickly. I've tried watched it a couple of times, and find myself losing interest every time.

    It's, "The episode we had to have". Someone is bound to quote me on that one.

    I also hate clip shows, but this one was bearable as it progressed the story and introduced a new character nicely. These last 4 episodes have really set the show up for an upheaval. Characters have been added and removed and the whole dynamics of the show can now be changed, i.e. new political environment, command structure, rules of engagement and anything operational like that can be revamped for the better or worst.

    I personally have found these last 4 episodes a little slow and low impact but am forgivefull because I am assuming the team has been working hard on the final two eps which promise big effects, big story and new big technology. Cant wait for the airing of Lost City1/2 Wed/Thurs this week in Australia.

    Just finished watching it again.
    People say they do not like clip shows but this one, IMHO and for the who series, they do it with a plot in mind. I was the best way to bring newcomers to the SG-1 and the new President up to speed with comings and going to the SGC.

    I personally like clip shows. They started that trend with "Politics", continued it with "Out of Mind", stopped for a while, and started again I think with "Disclosure". I love these things. They allow you to see what's happened, as well as also usually giving a plot set-up. With this episode, this started their longest several-parter in their history I think. This led into Lost City pt 1 & 2 which led into New Order pt 1 & 2. Five parts! Definitely their longest.
    Yes, I really do look like (a younger) Daniel. Don't believe me? Look for yourself.

    I can almost forget that this is a clip show. It was a beautifully shot and scripted episode that makes a great prelude to Lost City. I really liked President Hayes and loved how I felt sympathy and even admiration for Woolsey by the end of it.

    I hardly even noticed the clips, and they didn't seem to take up an inordinate amount of time and flowed nicely. Following TPTB's very deft use of a money saving tool in order to give us an amazing Episode to end out the season.

    That's strange. I thought I was watching Stargate and not The West Wing. I hate clip shows, and while this was better than Disclosure (I know that's not saying much), I did find myself losing interest in this episode. I watch this show to see SG-1 go on missions, not politicians debate the validity of the program's continued existence.

    This episode was only made because it was necessary to set up "Lost City." Judging it isn't fair, unless you judge "Lost City" at the same time.

    As far as clip show go, this one was pretty good. I guess they needed an eoisode to lead up to the lost city.

    I generally don't like clip shows at all, but this one surprised me. The clips seemed a lot shorter and more fluent with what was being discussed. I think it was interesting how the episode questioned just how stable SG-1 really are, and how they have got away with a lot that others would not have been able to. Good stuff, and a necessary episode even if it was boring in places.

    It had a great plot that drove the episode and the clips had a good reason for being shown.

    It also helps to have an "all star" cast And I love that they brought in that diskette from "Chain Reaction"
    I also like how it set up Lost City...you could see the political wheels turning and what led up to Lost City and Hammond being relieved of command.

    I like how Kinsey continued to prove what a power hungry idiot he truly is...and how he will NEVER get how serious the threat is. Okay, maybe after what happened to him in Season 8 he knows...

    I liked Woolsey's involvement...but then again, I'm a big Robert Picardo fan anyway. And I like them showing how disconcerted he was to learn that he was playing for the wrong team and his willingness to make things right and then of course the "Chain Reaction" connection.

    I liked how they matter-of-factly discussed the inner workings of SG-1, Teal'c's brainwashing (Enemies), Daniel's hosting 12 alien entities (Lifeboat) and how they alluded to the interpersonal aspect of Sam and Jack - how smuggly Kinsey made sure the others could "read between the lines."

    Which leads to the laying out of all the things that they've gone though individually over the last 7 years, from Sam hosting Jolinar and being taken over by who knows how may alien entities (and that was even BEFORE Lockdown), Jack retaining the knowledge of the Ancients (and that was even BEFORE Lost City 1 & 2) and all the other things they've endured.

    President Hayes said it best when he pointed out how no one could on earth could even begin to understand what they've been through. I wish Hammond or someone from SG-1 could have been there to defend themselves to the new President though...

    I'll admit that I agree with Woolsey to some extent...that perhaps it would be wise to move other people to the front lines, as there's only so much the human psyche can withstand. In real life, most people with high pressure jobs don't last long or are shifted around to relieve some of the burden, and SG-1's job is about as high pressure as it gets! I don't want to see them rotated out of the front position too quick, though...I'm looking forward to Sam having a real chance to be a kick butt team leader in Season 9.

    Actually I like down to earth episodes. Prefur seeing things coming through the stargate to effect things on earth, rather than watching SG-1 go away on missions

    Not a big fan of clip shows, but once again Stargate does it pretty good. Many series clip shows are mostly all clips, they kept it down. I mostly liked the new Pres, but by the end was a little unsure of how he would proceed. Seemed he may not be inclined to leave it completely in the current SGC's hands, even though he's not fond of Kinsey.

    I hadn't thought about it like that, but you're right. So much of the interactions in Lost City are set up in Inauguration--you don't get why Hayes and Kinsey are acting like that if you don't see Inauguration. And personally, I loved watching those two actors go at it, clips or no.

    Thumbs up Re: Inauguration (720)

    Robert Picardo was excellent as the serious character instead of his funny light hearted character from Voyager which he also plays well as
