      Stargate SG-1: Politics continues the season 1 ending arc with the first of the annual ‘clips’ shows. Essentially, for budget purposes, one episode of SG-1 per season is some kind of show where the bulk of the story is shown using clips of past episodes. The new scenes tend to be very basic, low-cost ones. In my opinion, this is one of the best clips shows, and maybe the best one.

      This is the first appearance of Ronny Cox as Senator Robert Kinsey,


      a character who would appear throughout the series run, well, until he finally disappeared into the depths of space, or so we assume, many years after this one. I’ve grown up watching Cox perform. He’s done everything from the sitcom dad to this villainous SG-1 enemy, and he always does it well. You just love to hate him on SG-1.

      As the head of the budget committee, Kinsey is all about closing down the SGC, and that is what leads to the review ...


      • of the past missions and all the clips. However, Daniel, who was injured at the end of the previous episode, believes that Earth must go after the Goa’uld aggressively. He fully believes that what happened in the alternate universe will happen here.

        The fun part is watching his teammates decide when and whether or not to back up Daniel’s assertions. Jack has already asked him not to say anything, but Daniel can’t help himself. At the climatic moment, he challenges Kinsey, who

        ends up just thinking Daniel is a nut. It’s actually Sam who first comes to Daniel’s support. She may not believe it totally, but she’s not going to let Daniel get banged around like that.

        Then Teal’c speaks up, and finally, Jack stands and tells Kinsey just exactly what he thinks about the senator. I love to watch this scene, to see just how SG-1 pulls together.

        The final scene is a ‘wow’ one, with the realization of what has just happened.

        Good show — definitely worth watching!
