    Watched this last night on the rewatch..

    Kinsey made it off the Alkesh imho, most likely to earth as he grabbed the ribbon wrist thing that should of been in Area 51 that had a locator thing on it so its likely that his character was left open for use in the future..

    DVDs Re: Full Alert

    An average episode.

    • Mike Dopud in this first of 3 different characters he'll play over the course of the franchise.
    • Kinsey is dead (or is he?)
    • In the end, Kinsey is still kind of a dick.
    • You know who was missing on that Al'kesh. That Asian woman, I guess she was killed.


    Tomorrow, a clip show (kind of) featuring Homer Simpson.

    I'd go with the 'average' for the episode too.

    It was an interesting idea mixing the Trust and the Goa'uld together, ready made evil hosts for the Goa'uld to use! Clever use of the mistrust amongst the governments of Earth to facilitate Earth's destruction. The Goa'uld certainly learned some new tactics from the humans on Earth, we see later how Ba'al makes use of this new approach.

    Not a bad ep. Better than most eps this season.

    Came pretty close to full out war with Russia. I reckon the Prometheus would have easily won America the fight though.

    And that's the end of Kinsey. Or is it? Dun dun dun

    Another ep of SG1...

    1. Mikita Couriers...I misread that as Nikita couriers and thought it was a reference to Little Nikita!

    2. Forgot about the Kiselov glasses thing.

    3. The biggest mistake was Jack having cack security.

    4. Of all the ways for Kinsey to go out...

    Solid ep.

    This is a good episode. One last of bashing of heads with Kinsey. Its also not really Kinsey. Its kind of disappointing only the first bit is Jack and Kinsey bashing heads at one another like they use to do all the time. The episode quickly more mutates into a more conspiracy of Goa'uld infiltration on Earth. In the past I have been against the Trust story angle but this one is okay because I like the development of the Goa'uld hiding on Earth. The storyline has the potential of good development in future seasons. Also I like the political tension of the US and Russia as given the disagreements in past season it makes realastic sense. Thier was a real sense something bad was going to happen. I think it would have been an awesome 2 parter to see a small US-Russia war before the Goa'uld espoinage was discovered. The one negative part is the ambigous nature of is Kinsey dead or alive.

    I am watching this episode now and I am wandering if the guy that plays varro in sguAnd also plays a Russian aide to the general kiseleve was a Gould as well as he was the link between the trust and the general in the first place, as revealed by Carter in this episode
    Never Leave A Man Behind...or a Jaffa for that matter

    Love the eps with the Russians involved not only due to the tension between the USA and Russia in SG but also due to the lovely Russian accent - I know that's stupid but I really love it. I think Kinsey finally got what he deserved - now he is a pain in the universal ass.

    Nope... not impressed.

    Can't remember whether I liked this the first time around, but I definitely have nothing to say in the way of "yay, what an episode" -- on the contrary... boring!

    Using Kinsey to gain access to the trust -- I mean, what could possibly go wrong here. Kinsey is what Kinsey does, and becoming a goa'uld was probably not in his immediate future plans but it makes for a nice enough ending to the character.

    Although, I feel the whole goa'uld infiltration plot thing seemed just a little too convenient. Putting Russia/China against the US -- well that's still very much the case (even to this day). Actually that last bit is a bit of a scary though, considering who's in charge in the US at the moment. Imagine that petulant child wanting to prove a point... *shudder*

    Anywho, not impressed with the whole thing but that's behind me now so onwards to whatever comes next... *checks DVD-box* ...Reckoning, parts 1 and 2.

    How would you rate SG-1's "Full Alert"?

    Excellent
    Good
    Fair
    Poor
    Terrible

    I think if our real president was in this episode, we would be have a nuclear winter.
    I'm inclined to agree with FH. I got tired of the Trust by this episode and Kinsey seems wasted in this episode to be a Goa'uld the whole time. I think a highlight was Daniel in Russia to see him with the Russian captain. I think a big reason this episode fails is the US/Russian tension is offscreen. A poor with 7:08

    I have expected some kind of closure to Kinsey's character, but we will never see him again. Maybe the writers have saved him as a future enemy. Just I don't like the fact that an annoying, hostile character has become a Goa'uld, so basically he was turned to be a martyr of the SGC. He doesn't deserve such treatment as he was a bad guy in the last 7 seasons.
