    I think Full Alert is what you lucky UKers get next. It's hard to tell sometimes with the way the schedules get changed around but if you've seen Full Alert (or are an instiable spoileraholic such as myself ) post away.

    Great episode. Kinsey being in it was good, and this really brings closure to The Trust storyline that quite a few episodes this season have been about, and opens up a whole new storyline with Kinsey being a Goa'uld to be a explored next year.

    And yes I think for certain that Kinsey had escaped the ship before it got blown up.

    Indeed it was Full Alert. And wow, everyone was on full alert in this ep.
    It was a great episode with brilliant USA vs Russia ranglings, distrust etc.
    O'neill featured quite a lot, as did the Prommie. It kicked Al'kesh ass!
    All in all i think it was a GOOD earth based episode. Nuclear War was pretty close.
    I can't write a review as Atlantis is on but I'm sure the usual suspects will write one.
    Happy Spoilering!

    Its good to see more of a few russian representatives though, Colonel Chekov is pretty cool actually, but this episode is going to bring some interesting stories to futures eps im sure.

    Great episode. Nothing better then seeing a Goa'ulded Kinsey

    My only gripe is it ended a bit fast, could have done with some clearing up on how much of Russia's military was infiltrated by the Goa'uld. I also would have liked to know which Goa'uld they were serving

    Mini-mini-summary:

    Kinsey breaks into Jack's house. He convinces him that the Trust are trying to make a deal with Russia. They wire Kinsey and send him to meet with the Trust. The Trust bring out a box and show Kinsey, but we don't see it as SG-1's signal is being jammed. They go in and find the Trust beamed out with Kinsey.

    Prometheus is launched to search for the cloaked Al'kesh in orbit. Daniel is sent to Russia to find out what's going on. Daniel is taken into custody there and a blood sample taken. He's shown a video of a Goa'ulded Kinsey, arrested for trying to assasinate Gen. Kiselov (sp?)

    Russia goes to a high alert status and Daniel wants to meet with the Goa'ulded Kinsey. The US keep increasing their DEFCON status. Daniel meets with the Goa'uld and figures that he's working for the System Lords and that they want a war to break out on Earth, allowing them to come in and steal the Ancient weapon in Antarctica.

    As Kiselov's men come for Daniel he grabs the Goa'uld and activates a transport beacon, beaming them aboard Prometheus. The Goa'ulded Trust in the Al'kesh decloak and attack Prometheus to take out Kinsey. Kinsey manages to escape and ring over to the Al'kesh. He shoots the Goa'ulded Jennings for trying to destroy him and grabs his hand device/transport activator.

    Jack and Col. Checkov try to talk to the Russian president when they figure out that Gen. Kiselov has been Goa'ulded. Kiselov tries to launch a missile, but the president is able to stop his forces. Meanwhile the Goa'ulded Trust find Jennings dead on their ship. They try to escape but Col. Pendergast opens fire on the Al'kesh, destroying it.

    Kinsey is missing, either killed in the explosion or beamed back down to Earth.

    I disagree with that, Jack at the beginning was far funnier than that, you have three minutes before i shoot you, all that was great.

    Teal'c i agree with you about it ending fast, last weeks did too, we never found out what happened to the PJ

    Oof! Pretty tense stuff.

    The ep was a little slow at first but the tension, once it started to build, grew quickly. I've been keeping relatively clear of spoilers, and though I knew Kinsey would be a Goa'uld, I didn't know the how and why of it. That helped make the ep a nail-biter, for me.

    Daniel had a terrific part in this ep, and so did the Russian Captain. "Okay, we'll stick to english, then." Priceless!
    I hope she's okay! I hope they didn't snake her....

    I wonder if Anubis is behind all this. The sound, as usual, was lousy(must be my speakers, right? ) but it sounded like his voice telling buddy to blow up the Prometheus with Kinsey on board. (That's okay, I really, really don't want to know, so if it is the case and you want to share, please put that into spoiler space? Thanks)

    A Cherokee elder sitting with his grandchildren told them,
    "In every life there is a terrible fight – a fight between two wolves.
    One is evil: he is fear, anger, envy, greed, arrogance, self-pity,
    resentment, and deceit. The other is good: joy, serenity, humility,
    confidence, generosity, truth, gentleness, and compassion."
    A child asked, "Grandfather, which wolf will win?"
    The elder looked the child in the eye. "The one you feed."

    Allrighty, better get this all typed up and posted so that I can go online and see what everybody else thought...

    PIGGY'S USELESS OPINION
    of 'Full Alert'

    I'm kinda sleepy and all, so I don't trust my own feelings about the episode until I've seen it again in a more aware state. Right now I'm thinking it's sligthly above avarage. It started out kind of slow, although I did like Kinsey just showing up at Jack's place. The nerve of that guy! I must admit, though, that it did feel somewhat out of character for him. Kinsey hates Jack with a vengeance. It's not entirely believeable that he'd go to Jack for help or whatever, just to get back at the Trust. Especially when taken into consideration that Jack is much more responsible for his downfall than them.

    The episode gets more interesting, and the tension rises as the situation escalates. And then, of course, it's resolved and the episode ends. More abruptly than any other Stargate episode so far. Oh well.

    So... The Trust. I guess it's fair to assume they were all Goa'ulded. Is it also fair to assume that they're basically done for after the events in the episode? Were all the remaining operatives on board the al'kesh when it blew? At the very least, it only makes sense that there'd be none left on Earth. After all, they were planning on making everyone on the planet blow each other up.

    What about Goa'uld!Kinsey, then? Did he blow up with the ship, or (since we didn't see him for a while before it happened) did he escape? The al'kesh did have asgard beaming technology, right? Boy, do I sound clueless! Well, I'm gonna take a guess and say that perhaps the writers left it open in the hopes of finding a use for the character should the show be renewed for another season.

    Other than that, I liked to see Colonel Chekov again. It's been a long time since we last saw him and he's more of a sympathetic character now.

    On a scale from Pig Puke to Piggy's Thumbs Up (where Pig Puke is lowest... probably, I haven't worked out all the dirty details) 'Full Alert' gets a "meh..." and a half.

    Finally saw this episode today. The time difference between here and Britain affects my you-know-what-ing. Some things I liked and didn't like.
    Things I Liked:
    1. Jack had a significant role in this episode. Nothing like seeing Jack again!
    2. We got to see the Prommie in action. It was nice to see it destroy that Al'kesh.
    3. Daniel and the Russian lady was funny. She was pretty bossy, telling him he'd acquire the taste for whatever that food was. She was hilarious!
    4. Kinsey as a Goa'uld was a shocker (except I saw the spoilers, so wasn't that big!)
    5. Seeing Teal'c on a SWAT team made me happy! Didn't know he could drive.

    Things I Didn't Like:
    1. Going to Def-Con 1 didn't seem to make that much sense. I mean, personally, I didn't care what alert status we were. If they had wasted less time talking about their alert status, they could have added at least 2 minutes into the episode.
    2. The Russians and the Goa'uld situation seemed very unsettling to me. I agree with what somewhat said about if the General was compromised, his right-hand man would have been. But they insisted on taking Daniel's blood.
    3. Kinsey's glowing eyes and Goa'uld voice wasn't the same. It almost looked like his eyes were red instead of the yellowish/gold color - but it may have been from seeing it through two TV's.
    4. Walter's constant updates got annoying, but nice to see Chevron Guy!!
    5. Why did Daniel transport out of the prison? Like they said, doesn't that basically show the SGC is compromised....which they aren't though.

    Good Quotes/Moments:
    1. The whole thing between Daniel and the Russian woman about the food that didn't didn't like and their Russian conversation.
    2. "I bet you 5 bucks Carter has a theory"
    3. Daniel ringing in aboard the Prommie
    4. Seeing the Prommie in action
    5. "I have to go get my dry-cleaning" "You're leaving for Russia in 30 minutes"

    All in all, I give "Full Alert" a 8/10 for some slow moments, but overall exciting, suspenseful, and action-packed (at times).

    I thought this episode was great. Jack was in command mode, very much in charge and on target. Sam, Daniel and Teal'c were each performing at what they did best. Kinsey was great as a goa'uld. There was lots of action. It was one of the best I've seen this year.

    I don't think Kinsey's dead. That woudl be too easy. I'm looking forward to where they're going with this story line though. Will Kinsey eventually have to be destroyed, or will they be able to remove the goa'uld, and if so, what kind of angst will that provide for Kinsey, knowing that he was used for the exact purpose he was fighting against?

    Loved the interaction between Daniel and Veronikova. I hope we see her again in the future. Saw much more chemistry between the two of them than Daniel/Vala.

    Shock, horror...another truely lousy episode in the long line of stinkers that has been season eight.
    I knew within the first two minutes that it was going to be crap and when...ahem... the writing credit came up, I knew I'd have plenty of time in the next 43 mins to do the dishes and whatever else.
    Thus far, I've seen 15 or so eps of S8-2 have been O.K., 13 have been lousy to say the least.
    People are raving over Reckoning which I haven't seen yet. I'll reserve judgement as people seem to exagggerate the quality of the season 8 eps thus far.
    It really is dispiriting just how bad this season has been.
    Honestly, I now officially REFUSE to watch any eps that feature the tiresome TRUST. I know they were supposedly blown up, but I'm sure someone will get the bright idea to bring them back for another waste of 43 minutes.

    I’d like to say that I was very happy with Full Alert. Ever since Politics in the first season I have hated Kinsey and now that he is a snake head I know that he will die at some point(sooner more than later). I also liked the fact the Daniel is not so good with languages as we where led to believe(it makes him a more realistic character).

    So... for the first time in a while I'm looking forward to the SG1 episode and dreading the Atlantis one...

    Fischer's Random Ramblings About Full Alert

    So I'll preface this by the fact that I'm a specialist in eastern bloc and Soviet militaries, and while slightly out of my time period, I know a fair bit about the current Russian military. So some of my comments may be on the geeky side.

    1. Kinsey. You know, I just watched Ronny Cox in Taps last night and am reminded of how good the man is, the fact that we all loath him has little to do with his skill as an actor. I really enjoyed the fact that in the beginning there was a sense that he was rather desperate for Jack to actually listen to him. I was amused that Kinsey wanted his belt back when it was over. Expensive belt?

    2. The Russians. Kinsey's description of the post war Russian military, while dramatic and a little over the top was reasonably consistant. But vastly oversimplified. But this is a television show. Thank god that they've learned about Russian naming conventions. They've still wearing ribbons that make no sense (everyone's got at least a dozen copies of the same service fifteen year service medals). They also have a prop weapons supplier that's giving them very old versions of the AK-74 (and I even spotted an AK-M). These are a little on the old side to be guarding the Russian defense minister. There are newer and more advanced Russian small arms. The AN-94 jumps to mind.

    3. I love that Daniel's Russian isn't that good. I rather loved

    4. I wonder how they're explaining the shift to DefCon 1. There are people who notice such things, that kind of alert level by the US, Russia, and China would be noticed by people outside those governments. The US had never gone to DefCon 1, not even during 1963.

    5. I liked the Russian captain, I hope we see more of her.

    6. Why are the promie crew using projectile weapons on a space ship. Anyone heard of hull breaches? Why aren't they using zats.

    In general, I rather liked this episode, perhaps the dry horrible middle of the season is over. My only problem was that it was resolved rather quickly, but oh well, 45 minutes.

    I have never been so disappointed with an Sg1 epsiode in my life. I never liked Jack's character when he was with Russians. He has an ignorent, assanine temper about something that happened eons ago. What the heck is his problem?? This whole US/Russia superiority issue just sickens me to my gut, I'm sorry. The thing about Russia getting all its weapons ready for an attack on the US is completely crazy and unrealistic. In real life, it would be the other way around. I felt lost and embarrased by this episode and during a few of Jack's scenes, I was tempted to hide my face under the pillows in anguish and embarrasment.

    The Russian Captain, though mildly interesting, seemed to be overdoing her accent a bit, I'm not sure of it was real ...

    Teal'c ... what can I say. We know you've got muscles, big boy, so stop fluanting 'em. Flexing during missions can get you shot.

    Kinsey. The ---hole as usual. I was kind of glad that he got blown up (or did he?) but that didin't save the cheesieness of the rest of the episode. I get sick of patriotic sentimentalist writing quickly. The thing I most disliked about this episode was it was unrealistic. Why would Russia attack the US just beause they think we're compromised? They could establish a quarantine or prevent foreigners from entering thier country until the threat was over. It was farfetched.

    StarGate, help me out here, please, I'm begging you ....

    As I understand it, DefCon 2 means full readiness of military forces, and DefCon 1 means we are at war. I enjoyed the DefCon alerts, but there is no way we should have gone to DefCon 1.

    Also, the location scenes were terrible. The scene outside the Trust's lodge and the scene driving through Russia looked exactly the same. That was just sad.

    Other than that and a few military/weapon problems listed previously, I quite liked this episode. The whole Goa'uld-infiltrate-Trust thing was cliche, but the whole point of the NID/Trust enemies (we aren't doing enough to protect the earth, so they have to do it) was already so far gone I'm glad they're (hopefully) done with it altogether. And bring on more Kinsey.
