Stargate SG-1 season 2

In season 2 Stargate SG-1 really starts to come into its own, with solid episodes.
(Note: see previous post for season 1.)

2×01 The Serpent’s Lair – a key episode that concludes the 1×22 cliffhanger – watch

2×02 In the Line of Duty – Jolinar – a key episode – watch

2×03 Prisoners – Linea – a good episode – watch

2×04 The Gamekeeper – this is ok, although the eccentric performance by Dwight Schultz detracts from the overall tone – skip

2×05 Need – this is ok – introduces new concept about the sarcophagus – watch

2×06 Thor’s Chariot – a key episode – watch

2×07 Message in a Bottle – this is ok – watch

2×08 Family – a key episode, if not a particularly strong one – watch

2×09 Secrets – Kasuf and Jacob Carter – a good episode – watch

2×10 Bane – this is an ok episode, but a standalone – watch

2×11/2×12 The Tok’ra – key episodes – watch

2×13 Spirits – this is a reasonable attempt to do a respectful episode – watch

2×14 Touchstone – an NID episode – people in warehouses on Earth, plus a bunch of veiled conspiracy dialogue – like all of the NID plotline, a boring X-files attempt (they never should have done the entire NID arc) – skip

2×15 The Fifth Race – a key episode – watch

2×16 A Matter of Time – an ok episode – watch

2×17 Holiday – reasonably entertaining – watch

This episode also happens to be the single most popular one (in Neilsen ratings) of the entire series.

Holiday gained a 4.2 rating on the Nielsen ratings, making it Stargate SG1’s strongest episode in its ten-season run.

2×18 Serpent’s Song – a good episode, and a key one – watch

2×19 One False Step – an excellent episode – watch

Depicting actual aliens is very hard, because by definition they are alien – you can’t understand what they are doing.  This episode does a very good job of depicting the confusion of an actual alien encounter.

2×20 Show and Tell – the Re’tu – an ok episode – watch

2×21 1969 – this is a good episode – watch

2×22 Out of Mind – a clip show – skip

NEXT: SG-1 season 3
