      The early years of Stargate SG-1 are often called the vintage years. Jonathan Glassner was leading the team of producers, directors, and writers, and he just brought forth a slew of quality product. Stargate SG-1: Need is another one of these shows, one that can and is watched over and over again.

      Michael Shanks does an amazing job as Daniel Jackson, who ends up becoming addicted to the sarcophagus, thanks to a witch named Shyla. Okay, she’s not really a witch, but


      I consider her one. Daniel is much more forgiving than I am, and I look at this character as a self-absorbed vixen who cares only for herself. She has no spine, and she really doesn’t know how to care about anyone else. She essentially holds Daniel hostage, forcing him to use the sarcophagus, all the while ignoring his pleas to help his teammates, all of whom are forced to work in the mines.

      Eventually, SG-1 gets home, and that’s when the real ...


      • drama begins. Daniel goes through withdrawal. We see the angry, bitter, and dark side of Daniel for one of the few times that part of him comes out. He has a chilling scene with Sam that is shocking the first time you see it.

        However, the best moment, and it’s another one of the all time best moments of the series, is when Daniel has escaped from the infirmary and is trapped in a storage room. Jack has chased him down, and

        there, Daniel with a gun in hand, the best friends have to have a meeting of the minds. Daniel has to make a choice, and it’s hard for his drugged-out mind. Then, friend holds friend, rocking him in his arms as he waits for help. It’s tender, poignant, warm, and guaranteed to bring tears to the eyes of the emotional. It’s just about the greatest scene of friendship on the show.

        This is a must watch. It’s just too good to miss!
