It wasn't as good as part 1, but the series has had a strong start so far.
Senator Armstrong's dead was kind of shocking, you don't see that very often on Stargate (you know a heroic sacrifice).
I really loved Joel's score when they were trying to gate back to Earth was awesome. It's one of my favorite score, so far in the series (we're only 2 episode in).
Monday, the conclusion to this 3 part series opener.
