I think some people are comparing these episodes to later ones in terms of special effects/visual effects. True enough, the blowing up of 2 motherships is cool, but not compared to, say, Lost City pt 2 or the fight in Heroes pt 2. Also, compared to later episodes, the threat didn't seem so big. Apophis's 2 motherships versus how many of Anubis's at the end of S7.Originally Posted by Starfalcon
That being said, I agree with you. It was a good "team" episode. It had the right amount of humor, perfectly timed, good bantering, a good story. As to the size of the threat, 2 motherships against a world that had no way to defend themselves is a huge threat. Later seasons, they had some new alien technology and Earth technology based on alien technology to defend themselves. Looking at the special effects alone is not really the best way to make a Stargate comparison, IMO.
I really enjoyed these two episodes. And I have seen every episode of Stargate SG-1, and excluding S9 (some I have seen once, some twice), I have seen every episode of S1-8 several times at least.

Your right it is hard to compare the missions from 8 years ago, nearly impossible we have come along way since then.
yeah it is your right
As a newbie I may have missed something here, but how did Skaara come to be Apothis's son? Didn't he go off with another couple (ie not Apothis and Sha're) at the end of Children of the Gods?
I loved this episode though.
Please don't laugh, this is one of my first attempts at a banner.
Most believe that 'other family' were the ones responsible to raise and care for Apophis's son, that way if someone attacked apophis directly they would not also get his son in the blasting..
Alright, I zipped through Season 1 with my Netflix subscription, but I'm still waiting for the Season 2 DVDs to arrive. According to Netflix there is a "Long Wait" and "Very Long Wait" for the first two Season 2 discs, which includes "The Serpent's Lair". I can only surmise that Season 2 is quite a bit more popular than Season 1!
Classic Stargate. Action, adventure, humor, and a cliffhanger ending.

(On A More Relevant Note)
I feel that all of the C4 and secondary explosions they had going for them wouldn't have taken out that entire ship. I would think it would disable the ship make it unable to fly, but that thing exploded like it was lined with explosive material. It would have to be in order to take out the second ship with it.
I just didn't buy that part of the episode, however, I really liked the rest of it.
Argh! Cliffhanger! I hate that...
But, this is a totally exciting episode. Lots of action. Goaulds and Jaffa. Zat guns and Staff weapons. Ships! and Deathgliders. Wow.
I can't wait for my season 2 DVDs.
I've just started watching this series and I just finished watching season 1 for the first time today. So everything is fresh and exciting for me. Being a newbie fan is not so bad. I just need to be careful of threads with spoilers.
I love that in this ep, so many new things were introduced.
I always loved this episode and re-watching it again (in order) just makes me realise why I did. Well shot, scripted, acted and lots of new things we learned about the ship and the first time we saw Zat guns (I personally like the 3 shot thing however believe it is or isn't). An awesome cliff-hanger.
I like the SG-1 black ops uniform they went for, remind me of their current uniform. Still looks good on them - looks like Daniel didn't take his glasses/took them off a bit, a little strange.
Interesting how nobody ended up reading the sarcophicus. I mean Daniel didn't even try, they just seemed to forget and move on.
Good to see Skaara/Klorel again, first swear word in Stargate SG-1 (I think in this episode) by Jack and rightfully so I think with his emotions just going into overload.
Had to chuckle when Daniel said "I'll just go tell the pilot that" and Jack's comment "I wonder if it will get Showtime" what so they can watch Stargate themselves.
Our first look at glinders within their housings on the ship, looked cool seeing them old into them.
The best thing about watching the DVD is to be continued... doesn't hold as much suspense when you know you can grab the next DVD and carry on.
Well LEE It's never too late to start & you've just picked the BEST Sci-Fi show in history & this is coming from a person who's been a Star Trek fan since Kirk was on prime time. I still love Star Trek, but SG1 kicks some serious butt. Most everyone has pointed out everything good about this ep already so instead of a rehash, I'll just say that this season closure is fitting for a show we've all come to love.
