    Not in my top 3 of the season but not bad. Jack is always funny.

    Yeah, Yu's death was a bit of an anti-climax to be sure. Baal being in the service of Anubis was a bit of a shock, though!

    Oh damn this ep and part 2 are swapped around on my DVD's. So I have gone and seen this before Citizen Joe. Oh well.

    A good ep. Really disappointing end to Yu though. That blade that RepliSam used to kill him looked really bad. You could tell it was just stuck over her hand.

    The Goa'uld almost get entirely wiped out by the Replicators. Leaving just Ba'al and Anubis left. Speaking of Anubis I remember his return being a big shock the first time I saw it. Pretty creepy the way he uses a body until it fails and moves onto the next.

    Thor and Sam were so close to having another solution to beating the Replicators again. Didn't last long though. Pretty funny when Thor beamed Sam back down.

    The capture of Dakara by Teal'c, Bra'tak and the rebel Jaffa is a big moment in Jaffa freedom.

    This was an awesome episode. Damian Kindler's best episode (it's so good, it's like he didn't write it alone), I'll say more tomorrow.

    So Jacob has betrayed the Tok'ra one last time (kind of).

    I may have Full Circle length notes for tomorrow's Episode.

    Tomorrow, the conclusion and the fall of the Free Jaffa Rebellion (oops).

    A great first part to a fantastic two parter!

    It's great how this story unfolds on different fronts and converge on one place, Dakara, where it turns out there is another Ancient weapon with the power to destroy the Replicators!

    Watching each group of characters coming to this point made this along with part 2 the top episodes of the season for me.

    Just about every character has something to do in this, making it extra fun to watch. Jack, Walter and Siler in the SGC, Jacob/Selmak turn up as the more or less renegade Tok'ra who give valuable information to the Tau'ri who in turn help the Jaffa with Teal'c, Bra'tac and Rac'nor to formulate their plan of action against Ba'al to push the cause of Jaffa freedom forward. Sam working with Jacob. Evil Replicarter Sam being fought by Daniel who turns the tables on her. Ba'al being shrewd enough to know that he could use the help of the Tau'ri against the common enemy.

    Love how all these threads come together to set it up nicely for a great resolution in part 2.

    Another ep of SG1...

    1. They were a little casual about the capture of Daniel but they possibly thought they had bigger fish to fry.

    2. Jacob was still willing to write Teal'c off.

    3. Forgot how ugly Anubis was.

    4. Also forgot one of the Jaffa was played by Mr Chocolate Salty Balls!

    5. And "I asked you not to tell me"...it's the small things I forgot...

    Great ep!

    This episode struggles with the problem that many two parters of SG1 has. Thier is a lot of time of time to development to make the part II awesome that part is kind of stagnet. Thier is a lot of truth to that one as a lot is devoted to developing some things are kind of slow. Although that slow action is fun to watch. I especially like the Thor scenes and seeing Jacob return. It was obvious from the beginning thatRepliCarter was Oma but I still liked the battle of words the two people. But one thing that bugs me like crazy is the magical reappearence of Anubis. No explanation was given of how he escaped the icy planet.

    Good preparation for part 2, and Anubis is back, ready to create new dangers for everybody in the universe. Well, we're all waiting or them. Replis again and Yu never again.
    Good one.

    So the story needs a set-up and that's what we're given. If this had been done in one episode it wouldn't have felt right, so I am glad they stretch it across 2 episodes, but it also means that there's a lot of filler.

    Also, everyone's off doing their thing: Teal'c and Bra'tac off to retake Dakara, Carter on a joy-ride with Thor, Jack at the SGC and Daniel captured by Repli!Carter.

    All small pieces of the bigger puzzle. They all come together in the end and that's good.

    Some funny bits with Jack, and the butt of many jokes, Lord Ba'al of course.

    It's not an episode that I'm overwhelmingly excited about but it isn't bad either.

    How would you rate SG-1's "Reckoning, Part 1"?

    Excellent
    Good
    Fair -- it's a set up. The pay-out doesn't happen until part 2 so fair it is.
    Poor
    Terrible

    I did not -- my DVD order puts CJ after Threads.

    I think they have filming order instead of broadcast order -- for whatever reason.

    My season 2 WH13 DVD makes an even bigger mistake, the episode order on the DVD's is out of whack completely. The fourth disc holds episode 4, 8 & 12 (in that order), so I had to tuck a post-it note with the DVD to remind myself that the order of the episodes is -- well -- out of whack.

    I think they do a fairly good job of keeping the tension up during this set up episode.

    Okay, I admit I didn't know they were out of order until I saw the episode titles on GW. I've never watched this DVD-set before, nor have I watched my sets for season 9 and 10 (so that could get interesting).

    Falcon has a point about the two parter largely being setup for part 2. That said, this common for Stargate episodes. Even Lost City has a lot of build up for the big Antarctic battle. So I agree that its setup but its entertaining setup. My favorites are what Sam and Daniel are doing. I think at this time I am more interested in the Replicators than the Goa'uld. I found the whole Dakara being a holy place a big eye roll moment and Teal'c being stupid. I think I give it fair with 8:33.

    Oh and Anubis magically escaped that ice planet somehow.
