      “Thor’s Hammer” is a wonderful entry in the Stargate SG-1 franchise. It’s one I always enjoy watching and that I do watch frequently.

      Our heroes are divided up in this show. Upon arriving on a planet known as Cimmeria, Jack and Teal’c are transported to a dingy underground tavern, leaving Daniel and Sam to find them. In the process, we meet a new villain (the Unas) and get some great interaction from both pairings.

      This episode


      is really a Michael Shanks vehicle. As Daniel Jackson, the team’s archaeologist whose wife has been taken as a Goa’uld host, he finally gets some hope that his wife could survive her ordeal. He’s desperate to believe the hope is real, and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to give her that chance.

      However, by the end of the show, Daniel has to make an impossible choice — to destroy the vehicle that could save ...


      • his wife (Thor’s Hammer) or keep it intact, condemning his friend and teammate (Teal’c) to a life in the tavern.

        Adding to the drama, Jack orders Daniel to destroy the hammer. Now, Jack could have done it himself, or Sam, but the drama is in having Daniel do the deed. That moment, when Daniel is holding Teal’c’s staff weapon, aiming it towards the hammer, with Jack quietly urging him on, is intense and emotional to the

        max. It’s actually even hard to watch.

        Shanks shines in this episode, and Richard Dean Anderson is very compelling as Jack, the colonel giving the difficult order.

        I just love the whole show. There’s a great ‘argument’ with Daniel and Sam at one point that is just awesome, and with James Earl Jones providing the voice of the Unas, a scary element brings on a shudder or two as well.

        Great show and a true winner in the SG-1 universe!

    I loved this review and the way you shared your thoughts about Thor and in the opening of SG1. I enjoyed the television series as well as Star Gate Atlantis. Very interesting and fun to read and I will consider watching SG1 all over again to see where Thor comes in.
