  • I love it, but it just seemed like any new kids always were linked to him

      One of my very small pet peeves about Stargate SG-1 is that oftentimes in the early years, if there was a child’s story, it was always Richard Dean Anderson’s character who had the poignant connection with the child. The only exception was Cassandra, the alien child Sam

      had bonded with in season 1 and Teal’c’s son. There’s nothing wrong with the character of Jack interacting with children. I love it, but it just seemed like any new kids always were linked to him.

      Such is the case in Stargate SG-1: Show and Tell in season two. Here a child appears without warning through the Stargate. He’s nameless and ends up taking the name of Jack’s deceased son, Charlie. He seems only interested in Jack, too, and the story about why that is, is actually a bit fun.

      This episode has ...

      some touching moments. After all, any time Jack’s son is mentioned, it’s heart wrenching. Though Jack is skeptical of what the boy says, he just can’t help bonding with him to some degree.

      The rest of the show is pretty basic. New aliens, the return of

      the Tok’ra, some shoot ‘em up action, and a happy, if not bittersweet ending from Jack’s point of view. Stargate SG-1: Show and Tell is probably just a middle of the road show. There’s nothing necessarily outstanding about it, but it’s also better watching than almost anything else on television.
