    No way - IGTBK had crummy jokes for the most part while Full Alert's jokes were better. Plus, although Full Alert was suspense more than action, the action ending of IGTBK sucked horribly. Full Alert's ending, although too abrupt, was much much better.

    Full Alert is one of the few episodes that deserved air time. IGTBK needed some major re-working, but not as bad as Prometheus Unbound or Icon did.

    Overall, I think the show flowed great. Ended a little sticky -- but it faded out on Mr. RDA so, no qualums. And, okay, I have to say it -- I'm SO glad there was a decent amount of RDA in this one. For me anyway, he makes the show and has been the backbone of it ever since O'Neill was first shown on his roof 8 years ago. Just the little things he does -- yeah, I'm off on a tangent. Sorry. But, anyway, good show. Probably one of the best this season and it beats the socks off the other political shows that they have tried in the past.
    IMO it was a good ep. It don't have me asking where O'Neill was at. I thought the scenes between Kinsey and Jack made the ep. Good show better than Convenant and Affinty.

    I really liked this episode. Jack wound up working with two people he really didn't like. One ended up as a Goa'uld and one ended up having some nice chracterization. I loved the music (the vocal part when they showed the scene of Kinsey in the Al'kesh when it was getting fired at. Wish they would do it more often), and we got a lot more Jack then we have been getting! Daniel was a little humerous, and I loved the opening scenes with the Jack/Kinsey dialogue. I think SG-1 is definitely starting to get its life back.
    Yes, I really do look like (a younger) Daniel. Don't believe me? Look for yourself.

    Well, I loved it. I hope we see this followed up on next season... There's no way to know if all of the Goa'uld were on that Alkesh.

    Also, it's great to see Jack growing into his role as a General.

    I thought Stargate Command didn't do that sort of thing.

    Well, we're under new management.

    I liked the Jack/Kinsey banter. "I must have missed an episode." LOL!

    Yet again, Teal'c parades around in sleeveless. Why can't he wear the standard uniform like everyone else does? Speaking of Teal'c, how about that pimped up Expedition he was driving? Does the SGC have SUVs like that are their disposal or did Teal'c get on Pimp My Ride and didn't tell us?

    I was distracted the last half hour of the ep by Daniel in that gorgeous suit. Did I miss anything pertinent?

    I presume you wouldn't mind it much if Daniel were to "parade around in sleeveless" more often.

    No doubt, the producers are aware that many fans are very appreciative of the attractive cast members they have. Is it really any surprise then that they choose to showcase Daniel, Teal'c, Jack and Sam in form-fitting uniforms or sleeveless tops at every opportunity?

    I was kind of disappointed to see Kinsey and the Trust blown away at the end of the show. It is ironic that, for all the justifications of taking technology, any technology, no matter what, no matter who gets hurt in the process, the people justifying their actions were unable to prevent themselves from being implanted with goa'ulds and caused the very problem that they arrogently believed that only they could stop. Although Kinsey was a complete ass, his interactions with SG-1, the NID and the Trust kept them on their toes. Considering the animosity between Jack and the Russian general, it was good to see them working together in spite of their differences.

    I got the impression that Kinsey may have survived but who nows it was not made clear if he died with rest of trust members he certainly had time to escape.

    Do we really know that Kinsey is dead? They didn't actually show his yelling to the screen, and he did grab that modified hand device, which suggests that he probably had somewhere else to go.

    You just knew that Kinsey would become a goa'uld one day. He has that look.
    I liked the part when Daniel said 'what do you want with me.ow.' I thought that was so funny!

    This may have been mentioned before, but was anyone else disappointed that they made the Earth-based enemies of SGC, Goa'ulds?

    I've kind of liked the very human corruption of Kinsey and the Trust.

    I don't know. The entire episode I had this funny feeling of crop-out.

    Hmm...it's interesting to see that some people think this is the best ep of the season and others think it's the worst. IMHO, I really enjoyed this ep. I had my gripes, but they were small compared to feeling like this was more reminant of the good ol' days of Stargate.

    I loved the exchanges between Kinsey and Jack (the phone thing and "we're under new management"). And yes, I thought Jack having a gun was a little out there. Dude, you went to the grocery store. But as mentioned above, the fact that we loathe Kinsey so much is all Ronny Cox's performance. And we all know Kinsey isn't gone for good, so I look forward to seeing him again.

    Thank you thank you thank you for getting rid of The Trust! For those that have seen PK Wars, when Crichton describes the Scarrans by going "Ooooooo" that's how I feel about The Trust.

    The humor in this ep was great, not grating like it's been a bit recently. I loved the board room scene, the dry cleaning comment was hilarious. And Daniel and the Russian chick had a great chemistry too them (as it's been said, the "we'll stick w/English" comment was one of the funniest moments in the ep. And Mikita Couriers! Hee.

    But what really made this ep for me was Jack. He finally started acting like a General: confident, cool-headed, and yet he still kept that patented Jack-sense-of-humor I love. Don't get me wrong, I loved Zero Hour, but the whole fish out of water thing was getting old. After awhile, Jack just seemed so lost, and it was not flattering to the character at all. I thought the interaction with Chekov was well done (although they did become friends rather fast). Thank you for giving me Jack back, I missed him!

    So, all in all, yes it was a bit predictable (there was a Goa'uld in the briefcase?! Duh.) But what a breath of fresh air in a mediocre season. Now I just have to get through Citizen Joe before the really good stuff (Reckoning, Threads, Moebius) gets here.

    I have no problem with them getting rid of the Trust, after all. This is the season seems to be about.

    I just wish they did it a way that fit with what the Trust was. Not make them all snakey and then blow them up.

    The fact that the Trust and all its previous incarnations, had been Earth human bad guys is what made them interesting.

    Making them all gao'uld and then blowing them up seemed cheap to me.

    Not the worst episode in the season, but not actually a compliment, since so far, Season 8 has been the worst season, IMHO.

    I'm of the opposite opinion. The Trust wasn't that interesting for me cause they were like every other criminal of every other show. Making them goa'uld made it a little more exciting for me. They have more potential as goa'ulds. It's also fun trying to guess who's a goa'uld and at what point they were possessed.

    Anyone else catch the subtle (or not so subtle) reference to Icon? I think it's kind of interesting that they've twice referenced an episode now that seemed like a 'stand alone' at the time.
