    Although this episode was a clip show (which I usually hate) I thought it was done very well, and I actually enjoyed watching it. It's probably one of my fave early episodes.

    A decent lead in to the S1 season ender to remind viewers of everything that happened in S1 & to tease them into thinking that the whole thing really would be shut down by Kinsey… the man we love to hate.

    Yep zats… that was a funny scene…

    I dont like clip shows but liked the Senator Kinsey and his "evilness". This show had to happen though to get on to WTSG and i like to see how American is responding to the Stargate but i from watching S8 im tired of all the eps on Earth about politics. I wouldn't have minded this ep as much if i started with it from the beginning but now there is too many eps that don't go off world anymore. (sorry for the rant on S8 but this just reminded me of everything i dont like about S8)

    I liked Teal'c's glowering. Too bad Kinsey didn't give him a reason to dismember him.

    I guess it was a good way to sum up the season, but clip shows are just a boring and inimaginitive way to save money.

    i liked how Jack had his little arguments with Kinsey and then eventualy pointed out some mis-spellings in the documents "he" wrote.

    i usualy like any episodes that also have the government after sg-1. good intro to Kinsey i thought though.

    Not a great episode but one of the greatest line in Stargate, to paraphrase

    "What do you expect us to do, upload a virus to their mothership"

    Neat little dig at the creators of stargate the movie who went on to make the fantasticly dumb but thourghly watchable Inderpendence day.

    Funny nasty line.

    Last night I watched the 4 episode arc, and as others have said, Politics doesn't seem so bad in the arc. Yes, I do not like clip episodes myself, but actually, this is one of the better clip episodes in any series I have seen. And actually, it didn't seem like the episode was "mostly clips". To me, it seemed to mostly be in the present, with maybe 30% of the episode comprised of clips. I'd be curious to see the timing of how many minutes clip vs. how many minutes new stuff.

    i didn't like this ep, i thought that it was one of the more boring eps of S1, but it wasn't wholy bad. it introduced Kinsey as a guy to be reconed with.

    I HATE Kinsey, oh so much.. I won't really get into that now, I'll probably offend everyone with my ranting.. Oh I hate that guy.. Grrr.... I know some people "love to hate" him, but he's just TOO ignorant and annoying.. Grr... *blood boiling at thought of Kinsey* Right anyway.....

    I don't like clip shows either - they seem like a waste of an ep. You know, if you wanted to see scenes from other eps, you'd go watch that ep. In my opinion, anyway. They just seem a waste.

    Having said that, the rest of the ep is brilliant! Despite Kinsey.. Although I love it whenever they get one up on him! But the dialogue and comedy and angry Jack etc were all wonderful. If only the ep had been made up of more of that, instead of the clips, it would probably be one of my faves from S1!!

There is no light at this great depth and little life can be found. It is a quiet and peaceful and fitting place for the remains of this greatest of sea tradgedies to rest. May it forever remain that way and may God bless these found souls." - Robert D. Ballard, 1985.

    That single exchange has possibly led to more discussion/wishful thinking than any other line on the show...and what a fine exchange it is!

    This was the first of the many clips shows, and has anyone noticed how Kinsey seems to be in them, this one, Disclosure, and the S7 which i cant remember the name, mind you it sums up everything that happened to SG-1 in S1

    To me this ep was pretty good. Stargate has a way of making clip-shows meaningful to the series since both this and disclosure had a purpose to it. The line of Jacks (and let me tell you something, this time there really are barbarians, their called Goulds and this time they really are at the gate, THAT ONE!) was one of his all time greats and ronny cox plays the Jack-ass kinsy really well. In fact I can say that it is one of the best eps of the season.

    This ep for me was the worst clip show out of the lot theyve done so far. IT also showed how badly patriotic some american idiots are to the flag and country and stuff like that.

    This is the best clip-show, the worst in my opinion is the one in which they disclose the Stargate to the other nations (in season 7 i think), i fell asleep during that one.

    Re: Politics (120)

    The best clip show of the series. Since There But For The grace Of God was the first episode I saw I had no idea what the show was about. After watching this though, I knew most of what was going on. This episode is great for those fans who started watching season one without watching either the movie or Children of the Gods.

    This is also one of my favorite episdoes. Of course, anybody who looks at the quote I use as my signature knows that. The whole conflict between those at the SGC and Kinsey are among the finest of season 1.
