  • The first story of this arc is There But For the Grace of God, one of the best shows in the series and this is definitely the best season-ending arc they ever did
  • Unfortunately, as the series ages, and with the advent of a new producer, it ultimately ruined the series
  • All of the actors except for Shanks get to play their characters a bit differently, and I think they enjoyed that romp in the acting sack

      The first season of Stargate SG-1 wraps up with a three-story arc that actually then leads into a cliffhanger for season two. The first story of this arc is There But For the Grace of God, one of the best shows in the series and this is definitely the best season-ending arc they ever did.

      Stargate SG-1: There But For the Grace of God has Daniel Jackson encountering a quantum mirror that takes him to an alternate


      universe, one in which his character is actually dead. There he encounters Jack, as the general and commander of the SGC, with Hammond as a colonel, under Jack’s command, which is a role reversal, of course. Teal’c is still first prime to Apophis, and Sam isn’t even military, though she is a consultant.

      Michael Shanks does a super job playing the confused Daniel, who has to try and figure out what is going on or if ...


      • he’s just having a really wacky dream. Of course, those he confronts are equally confused.

        My favorite thing is that once again, Daniel gets Jack to listen. It’s one of the sub-themes of the SG-1 series, this Jack and Daniel relationship. Daniel of any reality/universe somehow always manages to get his point across. It’s his sincerity and passion. His pleas just can’t be ignored.

        There is also the first alternate Jack-Sam thing. In

        the alternate universe, they are engaged. In this episode, it’s a quirky, fun thing. Unfortunately, as the series ages, and with the advent of a new producer, it ultimately ruined the series. At this point, though, it’s just a fun sub-plot.

        This episode is lots of fun. All of the actors except for Shanks get to play their characters a bit differently, and I think they enjoyed that romp in the acting sack.

        Great start of this story arc.
