    Same here. Having a longer running story line was what also helped save Enterprise in season 3.

    Ok, I'm losing myself. I loved this episode. Yes, it is a four-parter. (including 'there but for the grace of god', 'polotics' and 'serpent's lair')I think this was this season's best episode.

    I love this episode: as far as season finales go, I think it's one of the better ones. Unfortunately, it tends to run together with "Serpent's Lair" in my mind, so I THINK that most of these things are from the correct ep. Feel free to shout and scream if I'm off an ep, and with any luck I'll get around to fixing it. I make no promises.

    What was good:
    a. "It's surgical attack, Teal'c, and I'd feel like an idiot." To which I'm always respond to the TV, "Is that an unusual feeling for you, sir?" But that's just from someone who gets kicked out of the cinema because she shouts advice at the screen. Anyway, I think it's funny.
    b. Skarra! I DID not expect him to pop up! And I loved how Skarra more or less made Klorel make the priest stop before killing Teal'c. Go Skarra!
    c. Lots of action: Makes up for some of the longer drawn-out sit-on-our-butts-and-mope-about eps. I like emotional ones as much as the next fan, but some variation is nice.
    d. Samuels. Although I wish it had been Maybourne.
    e. The end. The pan-out was a brilliant effect, emphasising just how small they were on that massive ship.
    f. The ship's decor--I like the hieroglyphics everywhere (although they must be murder to dust).
    g. MY NAME WAS INTRODUCED, as someone (I think it was Asgard VA) kindly pointed out. LONG LIVE THE ZATS!

    What wasn't good:
    a. hang on...lemme think...ah, got something! Goa'uld ships always seem to me like they were designed especially with intruders in mind. Who in their right minds would put hidey-holes all over the place?!

    And that's it until I think of something else.

    I noticed that Ferretti was in this episode. I like him so let's bring him back.

    A so-so season ender, a decent setup to S2’s premiere….

    Funny J/T interaction:
    Teal’c: “I believe a medical attack could be successful.”
    Jack: “Surgical attack, Teal'c. It's called a surgical attack…”

    Really good ep. Good cliffhanger and season finale. Whats not to like about getting on a alien ship and learning all kinds of new gadgets and stuf. Including my favorite the zat.

    Isn't it "Surgical strike"?


    The little corners for spies, assasins, and sabatouers to hide were a little weird.

    I liked the part where Jack tells Apophis that their is an entire human army hidden on the ship
    Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini => three of the world's worst dictators.

    Also failed artist, failed priest, and failed grade-school teacher.

    What we should learn: Don't trust artists, be wary of priests, and fear your teachers!

    Just watched it again last night and I must say that this is one great episode! The build up to it in "There but for the grace of gods" and in "Politics" all add up to create a great deal of excitement and tension.

    Plus this is the show were things start to happen in space and we get the zat´s into play. And to top all of that off we get to see Ferretti again, just notices that for the first time.

    Together with the second part, The serpents Lair one of my favourite Stargate episodes. And I think one of the best team episodes of the show.
    If someone will make another Stargate movie I would be excited if it were only half as good as this epsiodes.

    I still not have seen all episodes but I think about 80 % of the show.
    And I compared it to some other very popular episodes like Lost City or Avalon.
    The reasons why I love "Within the serpent`s Grasp and Serpents Lair are
    - great team feel (which I missed in other "big" episodes (especially in Lost City)
    - the enemies came over as real tread to earth ( not as on many later episodes when the enemies were almost parodies of themself)
    - the show still captured to this time still some of the ancient egypt feeling of the movie anstead going for the generic pseudo Star Trek and pseudo Farscape stuff of the new seasons (I mean season 7 onwards)
    - and the humour wasn`t so much over the top as now

    And I stay to my opinion: This episodes had made a great movie!
    But now you have made me curious. What are the reasons why you don`t seem to like this episodes very much and which one do you think were better?
    And how many has YOU seen?
