  • The best moment for me is actually the last scene because it once again shows the team's archaeologist, Daniel Jackson being in awe of the Stargate and their exploration

      The fifth episode of the first season of Stargate SG-1 was called “The First Commandment”. Frankly, it’s not a big favorite of mine, though it has some fun moments to it.

      Basically, the episode is about an SG team leader gone bad. He starts believing he’s a god. The twist is that he was once engaged to “Captain Samantha Carter”.

      The worst moment is probably “Sam” making the girlie choice when, halfway through the show, she


      has a chance to get the drop on her ex-lover. She’s holding the weapon, but she doesn’t shoot, and he just takes it back from her. She’s a captain in the Air Force, and she loses all common, tactical sense. In retrospect, this could be the first time we are shown why “Sam” is a good team member, but not a good team leader.

      The best moment for me is actually the last ...


      • scene because it once again shows the team’s archaeologist, “Daniel Jackson” being in awe of the Stargate and their exploration. There’s a shot of “Daniel”, watching the kawoosh of the Gate that gets to me every time I watch it. It’s the essence of Daniel — his innocence, his belief, his passion — it’s all there, on his face at that single moment. It’s very powerful.

        There are some comedic moments in this episode, if

        you look for them. The actors have all said they were really making a comedy that was disguised as a drama, and that could be said of moments in this show.

        This is a true team episode, where everyone has their turn to shine, and they do. So even though it’s not one of their best or one of my favorites, I’d still whether watch this than most anything that was aired in the last two seasons.
