      Stargate SG-1: The Shroud is a wonderful episode, thanks to the return of Richard Dean Anderson as General Jack O’Neill. It’s not just Jack’s presence, but his friendship with Daniel that makes the show a great one.

      Daniel is discovered on a planet as a Prior. He’s beamed up and transported to the SGC, where he’s placed under guard and kept bound like Khalek was in the Prototype episode. He claims he has a plan, and he’s just been waiting for SG-1 to find him.

      For some weird reason, the team is all skeptical. Jack arrives and


      goes to talk to his best friend. It’s a hysterical scene. No two actors on TV play off of each other as well as Anderson and Michael Shanks do. It’s an instant chemistry and timing that just isn’t out done by anything or anyone else.

      Robert Picardo guest stars as Woolsey, who naturally wants to kill Daniel, with regret of course. The fun part here is watching Jack glare at him and state that ‘You kill Daniel over my dead body.” Awesome! That’s our Jack!

      Fast forward a bit, and Daniel escapes from Woolsey who wanted ...


      • to deep freeze him in Antarctica. He beams Jack up to the Odyssey and we get another fun scene full of barbs, and understanding. Happy days for fans like me.

        Fast forward again, and we have Daniel asking Jack to give the order to shut down the Supergate. For Daniel’s plan to work, it has to happen, and now Jack must make his choice. Is there any doubt? Of course not! Still, it brings on a smile and cheer when you hear him start to follow through.

        The last scene is a hoot. Jack

        is acting like our Jack, messing Daniel’s hair and continuing the barbs like days of old. The reminders of why SG-1 was once an incredibly awesome show are everywhere.

        The only detraction from it’s glory is the presence of Vala, especially her ridiculous scene when she sits on Daniel’s lap. Give me a break! I cannot believe Michael Shanks let Daniel stoop so low in season ten. It’s really painful to think about.

        Regardless, the Jack and Daniel moments here make this show priceless. It’s a ten, downgraded to a nine because of the vulgar lap sitter scene.
